Streets: Seth Globepainter x Kislow (Ukraine)

French artist and globetrotter, Seth Globepainter, recently went back to Ukraine to paint more murals with his local artist friend, Kislow. While the eyes of the world are focused on this politically unstable region, the Paris-based artist and his Ukrainian friend decided to put some light and color into people’s lives by creating this beautiful mural in the Podil district, the old part of Kiev. Entitled Renaissance, the wall took about a week to finish, with its imagery and title suggesting that the current turbulence that the country […]

Streets: Banksy (UK)

It looks like the infamous British man of mystery, Banksy, was active on the streets of his homeland this weekend. First, on Sunday morning a new piece appeared on the side of a house in Cheltenham. The stenciled image shows three old fashioned secret agents in brown trench coats, using retro looking gadgets to eavesdrop a phone booth. Even thought not confirmed yet as Banksy work, this piece has all the elements of his style, and it’s placed only 3 miles from GCHQ, home of […]

Streets: Inti (Spain)

Inti was recently invited to La Mancha in Spain, in order to paint a large mural with his vision of Don Quijote, the famous book character by Miguel de Cervantes. After working on the wall for several days, creating a massive image with his familiar technique and colors, the finished piece was finally revealed. The Chilean artist did indeed change the usual look of Quijote by covering his signature mustache and goatie with a bandanna, and giving his hat more of a helmet looks. But, it […]

Streets: Philippe Baudelocque (Paris)

Philippe Baudelocque recently took part in the ongoing BergeStreet event on the banks of the Seine in Paris. Creating one of his signature chalk drawings in public, the Paris-based artist created this interesting, delicate mural inspired by the sculpture of a rhinoceros from the forecourt of the nearby Musée d’Orsay. Baudelocque has been a fan of the museum since his early age, and this is his tribute to it and the “silent but powerful” sculpture (in different perspectives) by Alfred Jacquemard. Along with the drawings of the rhino, the […]

Streets: La Tour Paris 13 Demolished

The other day, the inevitable end of La Tour Paris 13‎ project (covered) started. The big (de)construction machines surrounded the building inside which 100 artists from around the world left their mark, and started tearing it down. This project was curated by Mehdi Ben Cheikh from Galerie Itinerrance, and was undertaken with the idea to paint the inside of this abandoned building creating the biggest street art exhibition in France. As the machines started ripping the walls, the works by world renowned artists such as Swoon, Inti, Vhils, Cope2,  Indie […]

Openings: Aakash Nihalani – “Vantage” @ Wunderkammern

On Friday, 4th of April, Wunderkammern Gallery in Rome opened the first Italian solo show by Aakash Nihalani. Famous for his street installations and works that play with geometry, perspective and optical illusion, the NYC-based artist created a whole new body of work for this show. More similar to his recent street interventions, the new work is even flatter but at the same time even more dimensional and interactive. And, it’s his ability to create such contradictory effects that makes his art so special and curious. Focusing […]
