While in town last week for the opening of his show (covered) at Galerie Itinerrance, D*Face (interviewed) was able to get up with a massive mural in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. For those keeping score, this is the second piece (also see 2017) the British street artist has painted for “Street Art 13” project organized by the gallery. Entitled Turn Coat, the new work features some of D’s signature imagery and touches like the Lichtenstein inspired look and the wings. Photo credit: Spraying Bricks. Discuss D*Face here.

Earlier this month in Belgium, the third iteration of the The Crystal Ship art festival (also see 2016 & 2017) welcomed in an international roster of artists to create murals and art installations in the coastal city of Ostend. One of the standout walls comes from Sainer (featured) of the Etam Cru entitled Podkarpacie, a painterly piece which appears to be named after a province in Poland. The stunning mural highlights Sainer’s skills when playing with soft focus and perspective, while working with a muted palette. We’ll have a recap […]

Once again, the very beginning of spring was reserved for the Nuart Aberdeen events to take place all around Granite City. With the weather gods being incredibly generous in the region known for clouds, fogs and rain (which we did experience), the first Nuart Aberdeen street art tours that were able to take place in warm sunny weather once again raised the bar for similar efforts worldwide. With a short introduction and performance program, this year’s event was officially introduced to the public on Saturday, […]

Following up on our sharing of murals, interventions, and print releases related to the Splash And Burn initiative (started by artist Ernest Zacharevic) in Sumatra, we now have photos of the latest mural completed Vhils. Furthering the project’s aim to use art to encourage a wider conversation on ecological issues, the Portuguese artist created a portrait of a Tapanuli Orangutan in Medan, Indonesia. Actualized with the Lisbon-based artist’s signature markmaking technique, the recently discovered species of Great Ape took shape with the help of a sledgehammer and black […]

Nuart Aberdeen officially started on the 12th of April with a media reception held in front of large, sun basked mural-to-be by Ernest Zacharevic. With bagpipe sounds as the backdrop of the event, local officials weren’t hiding their excitement about having this respected event held for the second time in their hometown, while Nuart organizers and partners expressed their enthusiasm about sharing their efforts with the local community. As the media representatives were learning about the past, present and future of the collaboration between the Aberdeen […]

After sharing one of the pieces yesterday that Pejac painted while in New York recently, we now have photos of the other brilliant piece he created in Bushwick (27 Scott Ave). Entitled Fossil, the mural really shows off the skills of the Spanish artist in creating optical illusions. Merely by adding shadow effects and by accentuating selected existing bricks on the wall in Brooklyn, he was able to construct the ghostly memory of a tree, referencing how parts of nature are gradually going extinct with […]

While in Asia for back to back openings in Japan (covered) and Hong Kong (covered), KAWS also had a project he was working on in Los Angeles. Rising up high in its new home in Silicone Beach, the Brooklyn-based artist’s newest sculptural BFF statue now stands tall in front of a parking structure in Playa Vista. With this piece joining a recent one at the Hamad International Airport in Qatar and a permanent sculpture in Texas, we suspect his fans around the world will begin seeing more and more […]

Recently visiting New York City for the first time, Pejac took the opportunity to paint a couple murals that spoke to the city’s environmental impact, an issue that often plays a key role in his work. One of these was entitled Inner Strength (located at 2 Henry St), a elegant piece in Chinatown that makes effective use of the existing roll down shutter doors. By painting some of the reoccurring imagery in his work (cherry blossom and flocks of birds) bursting through in an illusory manner, the Spanish artist […]
