We’ll have more for you as Shep and Scharf get in the mix, but head over to the West Hollywood Library if you are interested in seeing some of these street legends in progress.

Streets: Interesni Kazki – “Sisyphus” (Russia)

You may remember when we first introduced you to Ukranian street duo Interesni Kazki last year when we featured some of their work in Barcelona. Now, fast forward to this recent mural the two (AEC and Waone) painted in Ekaterinburg, Russia entitled Sisyphus, which references a character in Greek mythology except remixed with a modern twist. For those unfamiliar, King Sisyphus was the one punished by the gods with being forced to push an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back […]

Streets: Conor Harrington (Ireland) Part III

Cork’s most renowned street artist Conor Harrington (interviewed) continued to paint up his homeland with this third wall in a series of murals featuring his views on the “cowboy mentality” in Ireland and the wild west “cavalier bandit attitude” that in his opinion has gotten the country into trouble recently. This last one is in Ennis on the Glor Theatre but also make sure you check out the other two murals here and here. More photos after the jump…

After collaborating with Liu Bolin in New York for the Chinese artist’s Hiding In New York series of works in front of his Bowery & Houston mural, street legend Kenny Scharf (interviewed) headed over to the City of Brotherly Love for his next project. Painting a crescendo of his creatures on the side of tall building, Scharf used his spray cans, scaffolding, and even an umbrella hat in completing this large Philly mural in just four days.

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

The week started off well for AM with a new piece by street artist Mobstr making an appearance on Bethnel Green Road. This massive white pasteup can be seen from a distance, causing anyone who passes to stop in their tracks. Titled Visual Pollution, the letters have been cut out so the original advert can be seen through. Also, Burning Candy member Dscreet, painted a church with one of his well known owls over the top of an original mural of Jesus. Dscreet’s owl takes on […]

Streets: Andrew Hem (Los Angeles)

As Andrew Hem (interviewed) got ready for his show opening next weekend at LeBasse Projects in Culver City, he took time to throw up this mural in the neighborhood, Washington and National to be exact. This large piece featuring Andrew’s colorful characters seen in many of his paintings is in the same area where Herakut and Case worked on walls when they were in town (also arranged by Warren Brand). More photos by Carlos Gonzalez as he caught the mural when it neared completion after […]
