Always aiming to push the boundaries of street art or post-street art (as they re-defined the works this year), Nuart Festival 2016 produced a series of original and inspiring works around the city of Stavanger. From large-size murals to tiny interventions, we’re bringing you photos of some of the new public pieces created this year. Unlike other festivals, Nuart’s idea isn’t just creating the biggest and brightest murals possible. In the past 16 years, they’ve shown support to mural artists, but also, they also encouraged them to get […]

On August 30th, the second street art biennale ARTMOSSPHERE opened its doors at Moscow Manege.

From figurative to abstract works, sculptures to […]
David Stoupakis was asked recently to work on the limited editions of Joe Hill’s The Fireman book and boy did he deliver. Working in more color than he usually does, the New York-based painter used his artistic vision to beautifully bring to life scenes from the story about a worldwide pandemic of spontaneous combustion. The dust jacket, slipcase, and interior illustrations from Stoupakis are featured on the lettered tray case edition (run of 26 – sold out) and limited slipcased edition (run of 1000) copy of the book, […]
Tomorrow night (September 15th) in New York, Daniel Arsham will be opening a show at Galerie Perrotin entitled Circa 2345. The exhibition will be the locally-based artist’s 11th solo with the gallery, but his first in their NYC branch. As the title suggests, he will be continuing his signature brand of “fictional archeology” where current day objects are created in the way that future generations would see them when they unearth them. In this new body of work, Arsham has added colors to his normal black & white […]
Currently in Brussels, Isaac Cordal’s show entitled La Comédie humaine is on view at La Médiatine. The series of sculptures and installations continues to document the lives of the little cement businessmen that the Spanish artist is known for, mirroring his work on the streets. It’s always interesting so see how the sculptor from Galicia uses the indoor space as he is able to expand on his public art with larger scale installations that further explore his satire and commentary on politics, bureaucracy, power, and environmental issues. Discuss Isaac […]
