Jumping Man 2017, Blek Le Rat, A French Graffiti Artist, 20x21 Project, In Eugene, Oregon
Jumping or leaping is a form of locomotion or movement in which an organism or non-living (e.g., robotic) mechanical system propels itself through the air along a ballistic trajectory. Jumping can be distinguished from running, galloping and other gaits where the entire body is temporarily airborne by the relatively long duration of the aerial phase and high angle of initial launch.

This mural was one of only a few that was reflected by a window next to it. The Blek Le Rat signature made it look as if the man were jumping to avoid the rat.

A closer shot of the man's chest and stomach. Notice how his coat was thrown open and his shirt twisted by his jump.

The man's right foot was about to leave the ground. Next to that foot was the signature for Blek Le Rat.
