Have you seen “stikman” lately?

yellowstikman From the streets of Boston to Hollywood people started to spot a robot figure that further got the name stikman. The figures are placed all over the states and are made out of corrugated plastic, vinyl records, burlap sacks or scraps of wood, metal or cloth. You can find the stikman on building walls, newspaper boxes and traffic signs, but he is most often seen in crosswalks as a sticker pasted to the pavement. Some people are finding him interesting, others think he is creepy, but no one knows who the creator is. Some has tried to contact him through his email but he has always refused to give his real name, he will tell you to just call him Bob.

More amazing street art can be found in Brazil.


  1. I’ve spotted 2 of them in downtown Toronto, Canada. Both on the road, both white, like the top picture on this page

  2. Toronto, eh? I have not yet seen these.

    BTW,-d’ja see the new Google 3-D map of Toronto? They goofed and placed two CN-Towers side-by-side! 😀

  3. I live in Chicago and I see this little guy all over the place downtown. I always wondered about it. Can’t believe I randomly found this page on the world wide web.

  4. There are a bunch of these in the Chicago Loop, mostly on the streets at crosswalks. Have been seeing them for a few years.
