Now that Phlegm is back to his home city of Sheffield earlier than expected he has some time to work on some local walls like this new one he calls “the passage”. Also, he has used some of his extra moments to work on his new book (see the last release, the soldout Illuminated Alphabet) with several incredibly detailed new drawings. See these as well as a detailed look at the mural after the jump…
It’s time for another roundup of the new walls this week here on AM. Although not exactly immediately recent, this mural from Mesa in particular caught our eye. Other murals covered after the jump include C215 (Paris), Escif (France), Sam3 (Germany), Dabs Myla x Remi/Rough (London), Fintan Magee (Melbourne), Teo Doro (Valparaíso), Dimitris Taxis (Spain), and Isaac Cordal (Brussels).

During Shepard Fairey’s stay in Asbury Park for his pop-up exhibition with Jonathan Levine Gallery (covered), the head of Obey also took some time to beautify the urban surroundings of the oceanfront city prior to the ATP Festival. Armed with cherry pickers and wall space as far as the eye could see, the posse set up shop for the week in spite of stormy weather to get their mission accomplished. Check out all the action after the jump by our Joe Russo.
Since the last London Street Art Roundup, Shoreditch has yet again been buzzing with activity. Much of this is due to Moniker Art Fair hitting Shoreditch for the second year running with a collection of artists around the globe filling the space of Village Underground. A highlight for AM has to be this great piece by Word to Mother (interviewed) on one of the panels outside the show which coincided with his solo show Essence of Adolescence at Stolen Space, alongside Australian duo Dabs Myla […]
Over the past week, artists El Mac and Augustine Kofie (featured) collaborated on a wall inside the KROQ radio station complex. For this project, the duo brought forth a mural which fittingly centered around the idea of music. They had previously worked together on a piece inside the 33third Store / Mid-City Arts building, however this time around they focused on a color palette featuring a variety of red, white and dark colors. Although their styles are very different, the two of them managed create […]
AM recently visited TrustoCorp’s secret lair in anticipation of their opening at New York’s Opera Gallery tomorrow, October 20th.

With works ranging in mediums from stained glass windows to board games to vintage arcade games, there willl be something for everybody. The Corp gave us a little tour of the new body of work as they bring […]
After working his magic in Norway with several murals for the Nuart Festival, it looks like the next destination for Spanish street dynamo Escif was France. He took some time to immerse himself in the city of Niort (“history, economical, old factory, architectures, silence of street without cars and ghost in a castel”) before working on some walls for the Festival “Le 4eme Mur” (The 4th Wall). More photos after the jump…
This Saturday night (Oct 22), Ray Caesar will be bringing his digital masterpieces to Corey Helford Gallery for his first solo exhibition there. Entitled A Dangerous Inclination, the new body of work has a deep personal meaning for Caesar as it touches on the hidden places in his psyche as well as reflects on childhood experiences. AM had the opportunity to talk to him about this and many other things in an interview leading up to the show. Questions and answers after the jump…
Rounding out our coverage of this year’s Nuart Festival in Norway are two last artists – Herbert Baglione & Tellas. The Brazil-based Baglione spent most of his time working the walls (above) with some intricate tags that has not been typically for him when compared to his usual figurative style. However, when you realize that these were the names of of the 77 young people that died in the recent Norwegian terror attack, this particular room took on a more powerful and somber mood. Baglione […]
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 […]
