3D Joe and Max x Reebok – World’s Largest 3D Street Artwork

Yesterday in London’s West India Quays, Canary Wharf, on Guinness World Records Day, Reebok CrossFit has teamed up London-based street art duo 3D Joe and Max to complete what will go down as the world’s largest and longest 3D street artwork ever (for now). The deceptively realistic piece measures 1,160.4 metres square and is 106.5m long, beating the previous 892.15metre square record set by China’s Qi Xinghua, and will remain on display for the rest of today. In-progress photos after the jump, but also check out some videos […]

Streets: Escif (France)

A while back, we gathered some photos of murals that Escif painted while in Niort, France, for the 1st edition of the Festival Le 4eme Mur (The 4th Wall).  Apparently there was one wall that we missed that could arguably be the most intriguing of the bunch from the Spanish street artist – a ghost motif that we have seen before from him, this time drifting slowly away from the body of of an animal as it dies… More photos after the jump…

Streets / Teaser: EVOL @ Pictures on Walls

Hitting up London ahead of his showing at Pictures On Walls on December 1st, German artist EVOL installed some his distinctive work at Smithfield Market. Featuring his uncanny ability to transform urban objects into tiny cityscapes, this latest street intervention will only fuel the fires of fans in the UK as EVOL and full supporting cast of artists take over POW with their upcoming show. More photos at Street Art London and after the jump…

Streets: Shepard Fairey – La Brea Mural (Completed)

Last week, AM stopped by for a visit with Shepard Fairey (featured) and the OBEY crew as they started work on the La Brea mural. The huge wall that wrapped around the former Continental Graphic’s building was created in association with the District La Brea group show (covered) at MK2 Projects. We went back for a second look at the completed piece the other day and to capture some images for you. Take a look at the photo set from our ©Carlos Gonzalez after the jump…

Streets: ABOVE (Miami)

ABOVE (interviewed), whose giveaway on AM of his new PASSPORT book we just announced yesterday, is currently in Miami preparing for his upcoming show with White Walls at the SCOPE fair next month. If you remember, we already brought you a video of a more political mural he painted earlier this month, and he has stayed on working on more massive walls in preparation for Art Basel Week. This new one features examples of the new imagery that he will be working with in his upcoming […]

Update: Swoon (London & New Orleans)

It looks like Swoon (interviewed) is in London at the moment judging from this piece seen on the streets by the good people at Hooked Blog. The wheatpasted image is modeled after the stunning Thalassa installation she created for the New Orleans Museum of Art back in June and is a marker for her upcoming show at Black Rat Projects next month. The Murmuration installation and show will open on December 1st and seeing that the NY-based artist is already in town preparing makes us excited to see […]

Streets: Herakut (Los Angeles)

During the past week, the duo known as Herakut were in Los Angeles as part of Wende Museum’s Behind The Wall project (covered). However, the artist collective also took time to do a large scale mural which featured their signature style and character design. The wall, which took two days to complete, sits not too far from the city’s Chinatown area and it continues to show the technique that the artists have perfected during their time together. Of note,Herakut will also be releasing a book […]

Streets: Banksy – Robbo Tribute

Banksy is back to the London streets, with a tribute to King Robbo, at the exact same spot that started the controversy (covered here) two years ago. In a sign of making peace, Mr. B drew the outline like King Robbo did back in 1985 in the original and added a “spray can” candle, as a well wisher to Robbo, currently in induced coma. A closer look after the jump as well as a look at the Robbo piece…

Streets: Slinkachu – “Scars” (London)

As Veterans Day in the US and Armistice Day in the UK draw to a close, here is a reminder of the cost these brave soldiers pay from street miniaturist Slinkachu. The newest street intervention, located in London, is entitled Scars and based on a quote from Douglas MacArthur – “the soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” A close up (seen after the jump) will reveal the symbol of the […]
