Releases: Ernest Zacharevic “Composition with Red, Blue, and Yellow”

We recently received these exclusive images of Ernest Zacharevic working on his upcoming print release with PrintThemAll.com. Based on his outstanding mural he painted back in August for Living Walls project in Atlanta, the print titled “Composition with Red, Blue, and Yellow” is an obvious nod to Dutch painted Piet Mondrian. Zacharevic is cleverly mixing Mondrian’s strict concept with his own cheerful imagery of kids at play, adding a whole new perspective to one of the art classics. The addition of characters playing around these squares and bold […]

Streets: Nick Walker – “Love Vandal” (NYC)

Last month, UK-based artist Nick Walker metaphorically set his name on fire with his solo exhibition in New York City. That excellent show featured a new body of work that impressed visitors indoors at a Soho pop-up gallery space. To follow that up, Mr. Walker made sure the good folks of NYC also got a taste of his work outdoors with his iconic Love Vandal (covered) character. This large mural, which was located off 17th street & 6th avenue in a parking lot, caught the […]

Releases: Pejac – “Heavy Sea” print

Shortly after finishing his recent indoor mural in London (covered), Pejac went back to studio to add final touches to his upcoming print release. Six months since his successful, fully sold out print debut “Sepukku” (covered), Spanish artist is releasing a new screen print titled “Heavy Sea”. Based on one of his paintings created in 2012, the strong image is showing a massive pile of car tires with one lonely red safety ring among them. In his signature style, the artist is using a smart, simple image to […]

Openings: Faile – “Works on Wood” @ Allouche Gallery

Duality is generally viewed as good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, love and hate and the relationship they have with the other, and that is just one of the many constants we all love about the work of Faile. Provocative imagery paired with romanticized hardship, “No Expectations”,  “With Love and Kisses, Nothing lasts Forever”, and “Fast Love” just a few of the dozens of inspiring quotes found within their latest stacked fragmented cubed collage. Even their signature “1986” referring to that moment of the challenger disaster, reminding the viewer that some moments you quite simply […]

Streets: Shepard Fairey – Nelson Mandela @ South Africa

Shepard Fairey (featured) took his talents on a global tour this year with stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philly, New York, Berlin, Tokyo and South Africa, to name a few. One of his more notable stops was in South Africa, which has long been a focal point of political dissent. Given this situation, it’s fitting that Mr. Fairey paid his first-ever visit to Johannesburg to build an eight story mural of their recently passed icon Nelson Mandela. Mandela was a key anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist who served […]
