Taking place every three years, the public art project was gifted this new piece from the elusive street artist entitled Art Buff featuring an elderly lady admiring a buffed area of graffiti as if it was art on a pedestal. Head to Payers Park in the towne center to take a look for yourself if you are in the area. Discuss […]

While in town for his popup show in New York (more on this later), Conor Harrington (interviewed) made sure to leave his mark on the streets for his fans. One of the murals he worked on was for the L.I.S.A. Project on Rivington and Suffolk and featured one of his colonial style characters painted in his combined loose and photorealistic style.

After putting together an elaborate installation and mural for the Royal Opera House in London (covered), Phlegm used a similar technique for a project further up north. The site-specific work was created in his home city at the Sheffield Bazaar as part of the Festival of the Mind. Housed in one of the oldest parts of the city, the scene set up shows Phlegm’s characters interacting in an old school marketplace setting. Check out more detail shots below… Photo credit: Ladoza.

Continuing their art related efforts, Urban Nation recently invited Shepard Fairey’s (featured) in for their One Wall Project. Intermixing the text “Make Art Not War,” “Eyes Open Mind Open,” and “Rise Above,” with his familiar imagery, the Los Angeles-based street artist has left a visible mark in the hip Berlin district for the fans of Obey. The new mural is located right at the entrance to the U-Bahn station Hallesches Tor, Mehringplatz, at the beginning of Friedrichstraße. Shep states – “I was in Berlin for a […]
The geometrically inclined James “Dalek” Marshall (interviewed) recently travelled from his home in North Carolina to paint Instagram’s first ever sponsored public art at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Working on a double decker container, he covered it in his signature combination of lines, shapes, and colors creating a striking mural that stood out against the New York skyline in the background.

After a successful solo show in NYC recently (covered), and stopping in Portland for a mural project (covered), DALeast made a huge d-tour on his way home to Capetown by stopping in Dunedin, New Zealand. That same coastal town that hosted Phlegm (covered) there a couple of months ago also invited the Chinese-born artist to leave his mark there through the Dunedin Mural Project. Defoliation took about four days to finish and shows the landing motion of the extinct indigenous Haast’s Eagle from South New Zealand. This bird was […]
For our latest edition of Streets World Roundup, our featured mural is from Geoff McFetridge for the new Warby Parker store in Venice. The illustrator, designer, and artist has worked with the eyewear line before, but this latest project which graces the facade of their location on Abbott Kinney is the most striking collaboratioin yet, taking advantage of the architectural elements of the surface brilliantly. Take a look at the inside of the store here and head over for a look yourself when you are […]
As part of the continuing L.I.S.A Project in New York City’s Little Italy, Crash and Daze were recently invited to collaborate on a wall on Mulberry Street. For the two legendary NY writers, the mural was a natural extension of their friendship and professional lives as they share a studio together and were one of the first to make the jump from the streets to the gallery back in the 80’s. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: Joe Russo for Arrested Motion. Discuss Crash […]
