Phlegm – Market Traders Installation (Sheffield)

After putting together an elaborate installation and mural for the Royal Opera House in London (covered), Phlegm used a similar technique for a project further up north. The site-specific work was created in his home city at the Sheffield Bazaar as part of the Festival of the Mind. Housed in one of the oldest parts of the city, the scene set up shows Phlegm’s characters interacting in an old school marketplace setting. Check out more detail shots below… Photo credit: Ladoza.

Streets: Shepard Fairey (Berlin)

Continuing their art related efforts, Urban Nation recently invited Shepard Fairey’s (featured) in for their One Wall Project.

The new mural is located right at the entrance to the U-Bahn station Hallesches Tor, Mehringplatz, at the beginning of Friedrichstraße. Shep states – “I was in Berlin for a […]

Streets: Dalek x Instagram (New York)

The geometrically inclined James “Dalek” Marshall (interviewed) recently travelled from his home in North Carolina to paint Instagram’s first ever sponsored public art at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Working on a double decker container, he covered it in his signature combination of lines, shapes, and colors creating a striking mural that stood out against the New York skyline in the background. Check out more photos below and head over for a look yourself through September 28th. Photo credit: Joe Russo. Discuss Dalek here.

Streets: DALeast (New Zealand)

After a successful solo show in NYC recently (covered), and stopping in Portland for a mural project (covered), DALeast made a huge d-tour on his way home to Capetown by stopping in Dunedin, New Zealand. That same coastal town that hosted Phlegm (covered) there a couple of months ago also invited the Chinese-born artist to leave his mark there through the Dunedin Mural Project. Defoliation took about four days to finish and shows the landing motion of the extinct indigenous Haast’s Eagle from South New Zealand. This bird was […]

Streets: Crash x Daze (New York)

As part of the continuing L.I.S.A Project in New York City’s Little Italy, Crash and Daze were recently invited to collaborate on a wall on Mulberry Street. For the two legendary NY writers, the mural was a natural extension of their friendship and professional lives as they share a studio together and were one of the first to make the jump from the streets to the gallery back in the 80’s. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: Joe Russo for Arrested Motion. Discuss Crash […]
