For a project entitled "1,000 Shadows," Brazilian street artist Herbert Baglione invaded abandoned wards in Madrid, Paris and other undisclosed locales to add ghostly shadows to the already eerie buildings.

Check out more of Baglione's less frightening, though decidedly still creepy, street art triumphs below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
