His exhibition, Street Anatomy, had a busy opening night last Friday, and right after that he moved his tools and started working on this gigantic mural in downtown Oakland. Covering a massive concrete wall, the heavy metal loving graffiti […]

Art Focus: Fabio Magalhaes

This week’s Art Focus sees us taking a look at the unsettling work of Fabio Magalhaes. The young artist hails from Brazil, where he is based in the city of Salvador, also where he studied at the Federal University of Bahia. Working primarily in oils, Magalhaes paints as though he was a serial killer, with images of torture and body parts, and certainly it would be concerning if he used true photo references. So, we will just assume it comes from his imagination, studying anatomy textbooks, or […]

Streets: Seth Globepainter x Kislow (Ukraine)

French artist and globetrotter, Seth Globepainter, recently went back to Ukraine to paint more murals with his local artist friend, Kislow. While the eyes of the world are focused on this politically unstable region, the Paris-based artist and his Ukrainian friend decided to put some light and color into people’s lives by creating this beautiful mural in the Podil district, the old part of Kiev. Entitled Renaissance, the wall took about a week to finish, with its imagery and title suggesting that the current turbulence that the country […]
