NuArt ’15 / Streets: DOLK

Getting a jump on the 2015 NuArt Festival (which official starts on September 5th), Norway’s own DOLK recently hit the streets of Stavanger to put up some fresh street pieces with a new abstract expressionist style. These works are apparently the beginning of a global series of 100 that take a radical departure from DOLK’s usual style. AM will be on-site for NuArt starting September 2nd, so stay tuned for lots more… Discuss this year’s NuArt Festival here.

Streets: James Bullough (Richmond)

For those who enjoyed the mural James Bullough painted at the Long Beach Museum of Art (covered), take a look at what he followed it up with. Going big in Virginia for the Richmond Mural Project last month, the Berlin-based artist got up on the side of building situated on Lombardy & Broad streets. His portraiture oftentimes features the image broken up sporadically like it was transmitted with glitches, resulting in a signature fractured look. Photo credit: Benjah Photography.
