Streets: Public Festival (Perth, Australia)

From 5 – 13 April 2014, Perth in Australia hosted Public, “a celebration of urban art and creativity” whose goal is to “bring to Perth and the Pilbara urban, visual, and digital artists from around the world.” During this event, around 45 artists from Australia and around the world, created around 30 large-scale urban artworks, transforming walls and laneways with street art, projections, installations, and public events. The list of names involved in this massive project is impressive – Remed, Kyle-Hughes Odgers, Maya Hayuk, ROA, […]
Nick Walker NYC LES Mural AM 06

Streets: Nick Walker (New York)

After traveling to Japan, UK-based artist Nick Walker (interviewed) returned to New York City for a residency that will lead him up to a showing in the Big Apple (more on that soon). To warm up, Mr. Walker worked down in the Lower East Side area of Manhattan and created a complicated mural featuring some of his most iconic imagery. With the process taking place over two days, Walker finished a beautiful montage giving us a glimpse of the wildness going on in the mind of […]

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 […]

Streets: Ernest Zacharevic (Lithuania)

Ernest Zacharevic is still in Europe, staying busy with his solo show (covered), print release release (covered), and taking part in different art projects around the old continent.

Streets: World Roundup (Dec 30 – Apr 13)

It’s been a while since our last Streets: World Roundup so it’s time to revive the feature where we share a summary of some recent art from the streets. Headlining things for us is a new piece from Italian street artist Blu in Niscemi, Sicily. Along with his signature style, his political views are also quite evident in this large impressive wall mural. Other worthy work comes from Olek – NYC (source), Gaia – Baltimore (source), Escif – Spain, Ludo – London (source), Aakash Nihalani – Italy, […]

Streets: Banksy (UK)

It looks like the infamous British man of mystery, Banksy, was active on the streets of his homeland this weekend. First, on Sunday morning a new piece appeared on the side of a house in Cheltenham. The stenciled image shows three old fashioned secret agents in brown trench coats, using retro looking gadgets to eavesdrop a phone booth. Even thought not confirmed yet as Banksy work, this piece has all the elements of his style, and it’s placed only 3 miles from GCHQ, home of […]

Streets: Inti (Spain)

Inti was recently invited to La Mancha in Spain, in order to paint a large mural with his vision of Don Quijote, the famous book character by Miguel de Cervantes. After working on the wall for several days, creating a massive image with his familiar technique and colors, the finished piece was finally revealed. The Chilean artist did indeed change the usual look of Quijote by covering his signature mustache and goatie with a bandanna, and giving his hat more of a helmet looks. But, it […]

Streets: Philippe Baudelocque (Paris)

Philippe Baudelocque recently took part in the ongoing BergeStreet event on the banks of the Seine in Paris. Creating one of his signature chalk drawings in public, the Paris-based artist created this interesting, delicate mural inspired by the sculpture of a rhinoceros from the forecourt of the nearby Musée d’Orsay. Baudelocque has been a fan of the museum since his early age, and this is his tribute to it and the “silent but powerful” sculpture (in different perspectives) by Alfred Jacquemard. Along with the drawings of the rhino, the […]

Coachella Walls ’14 / Streets: El Mac

Yesterday, we headed down to Coachella, not the annual music and arts festival, but to the city itself. Despite the associated name of the huge yearly revenue source nearby, the taxes go to the city of Indio with the actual city of Coachella remaining a poor farming community. This is what the Date Farmers, who call the area their home, and curator Medvin Sobio are seeking to change with the Coachella Walls project. First up, we want to share with you what El Mac painted in the historic Pueblo Viejo area of the […]

Streets: Nychos (San Francisco)

Austrian street muralist Nychos has made a return to San Francisco after painting a massive wall in the city last year. This time around, he worked on a ground level dissection in Haight-Ashbury (arranged by Wallspace SF) for his fans in the Bay Area, many of whom will be making it out to the opening of his solo show, entitled Street Anatomy, on April 18th at Fifty24SF.
