What the Flip is that?!

São Paulo based street artist Flip has recently painted a massive… something… on Ebor Street:

Flip, Ebor Street

It’s really cool, but what is it?

Flip, Ebor Street

It reminds me of a jelly fish – a jelly fish with a cat on its head.

In this interview on Street Art London, Flip says:

The funny kawaii [cute], monsters and non-sense inspires me.  It’s also inspired by old Japanese mythical creatures, in this case, I mixed the Tanuki (Japanese raccoon [dog]) with the Jellyfish. I chose CMYK colors to pop up in front of the bricks … Seems to be alive !
