Streets: Pejac (London)

Precisely one month ahead of his upcoming London solo debut, Pejac has revealed his latest series of public interventions around the city. Titled Downside Up, these simple and striking installations are once again proving his ability to create an unexpected twist on common things and reality in general. The new sculptural series consists of old shoes “hanging” from light poles, signs, or other structures in an urban environment. However, Pejac’s shoes defy gravity and hang as if down is up and up is down. Like […]

Streets: Mars-1 x Curiot (Nashville)

Last week in Tennessee, Mars-1 (featured) & Curiot decided to work on a mural together for the Nashville Walls Project. Located at the new Nashville Sounds Baseball Park and sponsored by Gibson Custom Division, the new piece sees Curiot adapt his style to mesh nicely with Martinez’s organic otherworldly imagery. They had met briefly before Nashville, but had never worked together but based on this result, they should definitely consider more collaborations in the future. The wall is near the “Right Field” entrance to First Tennessee Park […]

Streets: Andreas Englund // Urban Nation (Berlin)

Painting over the course of five days for Urban Nation, Andreas Englund’s latest creation is a clever take on Rodin’s sculpture The Kiss. Pairing the iconic piece from the French sculptor with his own Voyeur sculpture, the two part mural (at Bülowstraße 93) executed with an expert three-dimensional perspective is a striking piece with commentary on modern society. Take a look at more in-progress photos below… Discuss Andrew England here.
