Streets: Ernest Zacharevic (Los Angeles)

After making his mark in Hawaii for POW! WOW!, Ernest Zacharevic traveled across the Pacific to spend some time in Los Angeles. While there, he worked on a mural in Culver City ( 3201 La Cienega Ave) on a building along with Nosego and Hueman, which was organized by Branded Arts. Featured a tattered Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs living out of a shopping cart, the new piece features the Lithuanian artist’s dry wit as well as his signature incorporation of found three-dimensional elements to his work.

Streets: Miss Van x Dan Quintana x Victor Castillo x Esao Andrews (Los Angeles)

Last month, a group of friends got together to work on the walls of a costume shop on Fairfax Ave in West Hollywood. The project saw a street art legend in Miss Van teaming up with fellow artists who may not share the same experience getting up in the public arena but who feature the same surrealist vision in their artwork. Dan Quintana, Victor Castillo, and Esao Andrews more than held their own with the French artist, while also taking time to try on some […]

Streets: Phlegm for Public 2015 (Australia)

Working on a massive new project in Western Australia, Phlegm has painted over four 36 meter high grain silos near the Wheatbelt town of Northam for PUBLIC 2015, arranged by FORM. Working 10 hours a day for two weeks straight, the prolific British street artist left his mark with a series of impossible flying machines (inspired by the area’s  iconic hot air balloons) and his signature characters rendered beautifully in his usual manner. Four of the other CBH Group silos at their Avon site to the right were […]

Streets: El Mac “Ánimo Sin Fronteras” (El Paso)

Right after finishing his mural in Ciudad Juarez (covered), El Mac crossed over to El Paso and painted another striking portrait piece. Like the Juarense y Poderosa, Ánimo Sin Fronteras is also a homage to people from the US/Mex border region that suffered or lost someone to violence, corruption and injustice in the last near-decade. Ánimo Sin Fronteras (Spirit Without Borders), is created in his signature technique using only aerosol and fatcaps. This unique painting method require a high level of skills and can control, and […]

Streets: El Mac – “Juarense y Poderosa” (Mexico)

Unfortunately for fans of El Mac, the gifted street muralist has been dealing with health issues as of late. But, luckily for him and us, he’s finally feeling a little better and has been able paint on the streets a bit. This latest piece is entitled Juarense y Poderosa and and is one in a series of murals inspired by those who have lost family members to the violence, corruption and injustice that has plagued Mexico for the last near-decade. The Los Angeles-based artist photographed participants in the […]

Streets: Miron Milic (Rijeka)

With a lot of street art these days focusing on size, technique, or the decorative side of the work, it’s refreshing seeing pieces where concept, background, environment, technique and message come together. Such is the newest mural that Croatian artist Miron Milic recently painted in coastal town of Rijeka. Invited to paint in the city as a part of a modern art museum’s project that supports art creation in public, the Zagreb-based artist, painter and illustrator picked an old building in the center of the city as […]

Streets: Pejac (Santander)

After a few quiet months interrupted with occasional drawings shared through his Facebook page, Pejac is back with another street piece in his hometown of Santander entitled New Order. As the title indicates, the mural symbolizes a different setup or view of things, or a drastic change that can bring brighter future. Staying true to his recognizable technique and approach, the Spanish artist created another striking original work using some of his recurring imagery. With minimal intervention on the wall, he created an effective illusion of […]

Streets: Phlegm (London)

Phlegm recently spent several days on a cherry picker in East London, painting a large wall near Old Street with generous help from Red Market and AltLondon. The finished piece is features one of his gigantic characters, cramped inside a typical English house, and includes a cool little nod to Banksy since it’s created on the same wall where the TV Out of the Window piece was painted. While this mural can be seen as a critique on the crowds and over population of the British capital, the artist stated – “It’s just […]
