Michael Yaikel is a Chilean artist who's been exhibiting his works in galleries since 2006, but on walls and sidewalks for a lot longer. 

As much as everybody seems to be getting a little done with a lot of street art, and even talking about street art, and even thinking about street art, Yaikel is worth our time because his pieces actually brighten up and improve their surroundings. 

Many of Yaikel's artworks (on canvas or on walls) seem to be born out of a lot of planning, potentially a grid, because their depth and balanced appearance seems almost too good to be true. (Either that or he's a natural mathematician.) Other examples of his work seem a lot more freeform, with splashes here and there and odd shapes that appear to have come out of nowhere. 

The blend of neatness and madness, geometric shapes and organic ones, muted and bright colours make Yaikel's murals and paintings pretty fun to study.
