The last time miniature street photographer Slinkachu had a solo, it was March in London and AM was there to witness it in person. Near the end of this month, October 23rd, the UK-based street artist will be taking what he affectionately calls his “little people” to Ludwigsburg for his first solo ever in Germany at Kunstverein Ludwigsburg. Entitled The Big City, which is actually EVERY city for his tiny sculpts when you think about it, the show will consist of a combination of past work and installations as […]

Because the scope of coverage here on AM of street murals & graffiti is steadily expanding, we will be doing a weekly roundup of new work (or work that has not been featured in their own individual articles yet) from around the world. Some of these would have been previously mentioned in our weekly Overtime articles, but since this particular sort of news is so image-based, we will be isolating them out into a separate series for your enjoyment. For our first installment, we focus […]
Our Art Focus feature this week is on wrestling enthusiast and painter Patrick Krzyzanowski. The University of Guelph trained artist names this series of works, Smell the Blood, which features detailed depictions of these sports entertainers often in gravity defying and exaggerated poses. One can definitely feel Krzyzanowski’s love for the subject as well as his humor, all rendered surprisingly in watercolors. More images after the jump… Tipped off by Beautiful Decay.
Back in July, Converse & Foot Locker invited four artists to Berlin to work on a project featuring street installations. Expertly curated to include artists who work with similar mediums, the resulting Threads documentary follows Hottea, Moneyless, Spidertag, and Aimee Dymond as they strung, spread, tied, and hung yarn & thread in complex patterns and shapes all in colors of the new Converse Padded Collar.
We had only caught up with French graffiti crew Da Mental Vaporz in Copenhagen at the end of August at the Galore Festival and now they are already onto their next project. After returning to their home country, the members traveled to Brest to do their part for the Crimes of Minds festival with one of the best collaborative murals we have seen in a while. Each artist was able to maintain their distinctive style yet the whole was greater than the sum of the […]

Just a couple of days before their upcoming solo show taking place at the Known Gallery, here we have a final look at the mural painted by the prolific twin artists How & Nosm. As part of the L.A. Freewalls project, the mural entitled Heartship stands near the center of Downtown Los Angeles took nearly a week to complete. This new piece contains both the immense detail & complexity which they incorporate into every one of their artworks and even more impressive is that fact […]

As we perused the preview images for Martin Wittfooth’s upcoming solo in New York at the Lyons Wier Gallery, we couldn’t help but think that he had elevated his painting to the next level with this new body of work. After seeing one powerful image after another, we sat down to put some questions to the Brooklyn-based artist about The Passions scheduled to open on October 13th. We talked about the symbolism in his work, which is evident as you encounter unforgettable images like a […]
The organizer of the Urban Forms Gallery project in Poland, Michael Biezynski, recently sent over some photos of the wall murals to share with our readers. It is rare to say that we enjoyed all the work from every artist that participates in various festivals or events, but in this rare case, we were quite impressed with what every artist created including some that we were not familiar with. Check out what Aryz, Remed, Kenor, M-City, Etam Crew, Sat One, and Sepe/Chazme had to offer […]
One misty morning in Norway, we hiked over to the Obrestad Lighthouse to check out the intricate workings of Lucy McLauchlan.

More photos of the lighthouse and other murals taken by Henrik Haven after the jump… Discuss Lucy Mclauchlan here.
