It looks like Herbert Baglione has been having some fun in Parma, Italy recently. Hanging out in an abandoned psychiatric hospital, the renowned Brazilian street artist took advantage of the location to continue his 1000 Shadows project, a series of works where he paints floating silhouettes on floors and walls. In this setting, one can imagine the poor souls that used to live in this place. More photos below… Discuss Herbert Baglione here.

Last weekeend in Grottaglie, Italy in the ceramic district, the geometrically inclined Momo opened up a solo show. Put on by the people behind the annual Fame Festival, the exhibition featured pieces that were very similar to the abstract murals that the street muralist has been known for.

Take a look at more photos below and reach out if you are interested in adding something to your collection here… Discuss Momo here. Photo credit: Matteo […]

It sounds like Chet Zar (interviewed) has big plans for his next show which will be entitled Ego Death. By setting up a kickstarter, the Los Angeles-based painter of monsters hopes to put on an exhibition like an elaborate funeral.

The Portugal-based artist then proceeded to use his tear technique to form a portrait as the underlying layers are revealed. Photo credit: RJ Rushmore & Steve Weinik. […]

See more installation views and a closer look at the […]
