Streets: Sam3 (Barcelona)

Spanish artist Sam3 recently visited Barcelona where he created a new beautiful mural titled Park. Rendered with his familiar technique of using only black color and painting silhouettes, this public piece feels both very light and strong, fitting perfectly to the environment it is placed in. The piece shows four trees whose treetops form heads which communicated with each other with birds flying from one tree to the other. With a closer look, one notices that the leaves of the treetops are actually little birds […]

Streets: Os Gemeos – Nelson Mandela Tribute

With the recent passing of Nelson Mandela, the world mourns the South African anti-apartheid revolutionary who had become an inspiration to the oppressed everywhere. His views and life seem to align with philosophies of many street artists out there who create work along the same lines with the themes Mandela supported. Os Gemeos recently posted up a tribute piece they did with a caption and quote – “Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions […]

Streets: Vhils x Pixel Pancho (Lisbon)

With some recent articles, we have introduced to you several public murals arranged by the Underdogs platform in Lisbon as well as some gallery shows. We now have another street piece to share with you in the same vein – a collaboration between Vhils and Pixel Pancho. The joint wall saw the locally-based Vhils mix his chiseled technique with the Italian Pixel Pancho’s robotic imagery leading an interesting interaction of disparate styles.
