DALeast works in a monumental scale, often covering the entire side of a building with one mural. His pieces revolve around animal figures, which he explains reflect the human condition and show the similarities between both worlds.

A part from the size of his murals, his street art stands out thanks to his unique style and technique. Working at a fast speed, DALeast paints his graffitis with rapid strokes of black spray paint. He then adds layers of grey and white to create the 3D effect that his pieces are known for. The animals seem to pop off the wall and move with a life of their own.

The animals are normally shown in disconnected parts, giving the mural more dynamism and movement. The figures seem to be disintegrating in pieces, often leaving a trail behind them or breaking down the middle. The animals are represented through abstract renditions of their form that are surprisingly realistic and accurate, showing the strength of their muscles, their aggressiveness and the elegance of their movements.
