Streets: Banksy – “Better Out Than In” (New York) – Day 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

For those who were busy over the weekend, here is a summary of the latest Banksy pieces for his Better Out Than In art residency in New York. In addition to street stencils, Mr. B also blessed the Big Apple with more “performance art” with a truck filled with animated stuffed animals heading for the slaughter house (see video below). And, in an unexpected twist, Banksy sold original signed canvases in Central Park for only $60 with  all of the purchases likely going to people who didn’t even […]
Gaia O+ - Andy Milford (39)

Streets: Gaia (Kingston, NY)

Not long after finishing his big installation at Rice University Art Gallery, prolific artist Gaia is back on the streets focusing on a new mural in Kingston, NY for the O+ Festival, a very unique event in which artists exchange their contributions for health and wellness services from art-loving doctors, dentists, and other medical providers. Gaia painted a massive, six story wall with Artemis, Greek goddess of the hunt and fertility in the center of it. This powerful female figure is represented through a marble statue that is emerging from […]

Streets: DALeast (Spain)

On his recent travels around the world, Chinese born artist DALeast (interviewed) stopped recently in Malaga, Spain, to leave his mark for the Malaga Maus project. Always up for pushing his work and technique, the artist decided not to place his mural on a flat wall, but used the architectural challenges of the place. The result is a magnificent mural titled Abiding in The Broken Heart which is showing a giant black bird with lots of smaller birds flying out of it. With his unmistakable line work, […]

Streets: Faith47 for Avant Garde Urbano (Spain)

Faith47 recently dropped one of her most iconic murals to date in the quaint town of Tudela De Navarra at the fourth annual Avant Garde Urbano Festival (also see our coverage of Vhils’ piece). In an area of Spain that is heavily influenced by Catholicism, she appropriately integrated a piece depicting a strong likeness to the Virgin Mary entitled saturation.incubation.illumination. Other mural works coming up include efforts from Ron English and Dal East. In addition, there is a museum exhibition running through the 27th of October featuring works by C215, Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada, Ripo, Sixeart, SUSO33, Evan Roth, Filippo […]

Streets: Banksy – “Better Out Than In” (New York) – Day 8 & 9

After a great first week in New York City where Banksy hit seven different locations over seven days (covered here), he starts off the week on Monday with a philosphical reference piece (Day 8). Then yesterday, we woke to find that the elusive Bristol-based artist had brought out the big guns – literally. For Day 9 of Better Out Than In, Mr. B gets a little more clever with an installation inside an empty lot in the Lower East Side near the corner of Ludlow & Stanton. Banksy sets […]
CYRCLE x WOODKID 21

Streets: Cyrcle. x Woodkid (Los Angeles)

The always productive Cyrcle. crew has blessed Los Angeles with another epic mural. This time, on a wall provided by Branded Arts, the boys collaborated with Woodkid on a piece that is located on the hotbed art gallery Hollywood intersection of Santa Monica Blvd and Highland. Although it features the visual artists working with a musician, rather than being a marketing piece for a new album release or a advertisement, the work explores the aesthetic and concept of his music. It rewards followers and fans […]

Streets: Banksy – “Better Out Than In” (New York) – Day 5, 6, 7

After releasing a provocative video (seen directly below) for day #6 and a mobile waterfall truck for his day #5 of his Better Out Than In project in NYC, Banksy is continuing this event with a new street piece. For day #7 of his NYC residency, Mr. B revealed a fresh piece showing his infamous balloon heart. The image of the girl with a balloon heart flying away from her is one of his strongest, and most recognizable pieces, and it is obviously a special one for […]

Streets: Banksy – “Better Out Than In” (New York) – Day 4

It is his fourth day of his street residency in New York, and for today the ever elusive Banksy created an ongoing series of works titled Random graffiti given a Broadway makeover. Known for simple, witty ideas, this concept is a perfect example of the street artist’s creative thinking. By adding a flashy “The Musical” under random graffiti around the city, addressing either economic, political, neighborhood or completely private issues, the artist is commenting on the superficial way our society tends to look at these or other issues. This concept […]
