It’s been a long time since our last Streets World Roundup so we won’t be able to catch you up with all the murals we have been enjoying the last year or so. We can however share what caught our eye in June though. Up top we have a mural from Eduardo Kobra in Carrara, Italy with a very unique placement. Painted in the famous Carrara quarry where Michelangelo and so many other renowned Italian artists sought marble for their works, the new 12 x 20 meter […]
Last weekend, Library Street Collective opened a new solo from Faile (featured) entitled The Size of the Fight, the duo’s first show in Detroit. Along with originals, prints, and sculptural works, one of the walls featured a mural from the Patrick’s as they took inspiration from the Motor City’s revival in the last several years. The Brooklyn-based artists also unveiled five large-scale painted, stenciled, and silkscreened works on wood panels in the adjacent alleyway aka “The Belt,” the gallery’s public exhibition space (more on this later). Discuss Faile here.

Galerie Le Feuvre in Paris recently extended the planned duration of the solo by Ella & Pitr as well as changed most of the works in the show, displaying some unseen pieces in the last few weeks of the exhibition. Au jour le jour pour toujours”(From day to day, forever) consists of a brand new work that the art couple produced in eight month of work and is titled after their personal maxim. This new show marks a slight step away from what the prolific art duo are known […]
Last month in Italy, street art savant Blu made one of his increasingly rare appearances and painted an impressive new mural for the Draw The Line Festival. Entitled La Cuccagna, the mural is his second for the event in Campobasso (see 2011) which again features the Italian artist’s typical biting political commentary made painfully clear with his straight to the point imagery. The piece depicts metaphorically in a genius way how the “elites” of society live off the poor and how they pollute the environment through the […]
Having already exhibited in Europe, US, Canada and Mexico, Spanish artist Miguel Ángel Belinchón aka Belin is currently presenting his first Parisian solo show at 24 Beaubourg entitled Post Neo Cubism, curated by Nicolas Couturieux.
