It’s time for another roundup of street art around the world that we didn’t have a chance to cover in-depth. First up is a mural from Case in Erfurt, Germany for the OQ Paint project. Utilizing the overlapping hand and finger imagery seen in his recent work (ie: New York), the Maclaim member created a special public work that fans in the city can enjoy for years. If you are interested in more in-progress photos, head over here. Other notable work comes from: Rone – […]

In Bondi, Australia, at the annual Sculpture by the Sea festival, David McCracken had a piece on view entitled Diminish and Ascend. The steps made from aluminum jut out on the side of a hill facing the sea and plays with perspectives to make it look like a never-ending path into the sky. Take a look at photos of the piece in different lighting and at various angles below… Photo credit: Paul David (front image), the rest specified at the bottom of image. Via My Modern Met.
If you are in town for Art Basel Week in Miami next week, you may want to stop by the pop-op shop created by French boutique store colette.

Along with the Bamford Watch Department x José Parla Rolex (seen above), there will be a wide range of products available. Take a look at some of these […]

If you are interested in seeing his works in person, which he describes as “painted as realistically as he can from his imagination,” you may […]
For those on their way to this year’s Art Basel Week in Miami, you may want to check out the new Perez Art Museum Miami (formerly know as the Miami Art Museum) in a new Herzog & de Meuron designed building. Coincidentally, an artist, Ai Weiwei, that has collaborated with the Swiss architecture firm in the past will be showing at the museum. The survey of the Chinese artist’s career will feature works of the last 20 years, including photography and the large-scale sculptures for which the artist is best known. Discuss […]
Painter Candice Tripp (interviewed) and Giles Walker (known for his immersive robotic installations) have a collaborative show with a public opening scheduled this Saturday (November 30) at Black Rat Projects. IʼM NEVER SHOPPING HERE AGAIN will include individual works from the two artists like the Tripp paintings seen here as well as several collaborative installations (hinted at in the photo directly below). Based on the prior works from the two, the intersection of their worlds promises to be dark and beautiful at the same time. Discuss Candice Tripp here.
Two familiar names in street art, Shepard Fairey (featured) and D*Face (interviewed), united their efforts to paint two massive walls on the side of a building in Malaga, Spain recently. The seven story tall murals next to CAC Malaga were painted on an invite from Maus Málaga as well as from the museum and were representative of both the American and UK-based artist’s styles. Take a look at more in-progress and shots from different angles below… Photos via the artists. Discuss Shepard Fairey here. Discuss D*Face here.
