After bringing you a look at the walls Maya Hayuk and Ben Eine painted on for the Coney Art Walls, we now have shots of the piece Miss Van worked on. For this wall, the Toulouse legend painted one of her signature poupées between two horses. Entitled appropriately Gypsy with Stallions, the vibrant colors and imagery familiar to street art fans make this mural a worthy addition to the Deitch curated project. Photo credit: Birdman Photos.

Icarus is an image Pejac introduced a while ago in the form of […]

Some of El Mac’s most breathtaking murals are collaboration with graffiti artists where his ethereal portraiture is overlaid against a background of urban letterforms. Nuestra Gente, created earlier this year in Phoenix, Arizona, certainly fits the bill when he collaborated with local legends Mando Rascón & Pablo Luna. The background designs seen around the face were painted by Rascón and the outer images on the ends of the mural were laid down by Luna. Created in downtown on Van Buren Street, the sublime wall near where the Los Angeles-based artist […]
