Streets: Madsteez x Nike For College Football Playoff National Championship

While Ohio State and Oregon were battling it out for the College Football Playoff National Championship, of which the Buckeyes eventually emerged victorious, Madsteez was already underway painting a mural dedicated to the contest at 3015 at Trinity Groves in Dallas. The California-based artist let the online community decide how the mural unfolded as he took suggestions throughout the creation process. Take a look at more photos of Untouchable sponsored by Nike and a video below… Tipped off by StreetArtNews. Discuss Madsteez here.

After a successful showing that opened last month in Los Angeles (covered), Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured) went back to his roots recently and painted something on the streets of Redondo Beach. Collaborating with Lyte, a fellow crew member from CBS/WAI, the duo beautified the wall with their letterforms while throwing out a shout out to 2SHAE in the process.

Previews: Greg Eason & Anouk Mercier – ‘CLASSIC/ LUXURY / EXOTIC/ ROMANCE (C/L/E/R)’ @ Space W10

Greg Eason makes a welcome return to London in a two-person exhibition alongside the Bristol-based Anouk Mercier this week entitled CLASSIC/ LUXURY / EXOTIC / ROMANCE (C/L/E/R) at Space W10. For those not familiar with Eason’s graphite drawings, his meticulously detailed and characteristically sparse work isolates narrative fragments within a microscopic frame. Objects become rendered as intricate miniature components within a vast negative space, creating an uneasy sense of depth and scale. Objects are presented as symbols; often incorporating recurring motifs within his work. This exhibition sees him venture into the realms of colour, but […]

Streets: World Roundup (Oct 13 – Jan 12)

During the winter months, we typically see a slowdown of street activity due to the colder weather.

Other notable walls come from ROA – Germany (source), Herakut – USA, […]

Showing: Cai Guo-Qiang – “Impromptu” @ Fundación Proa

In December, Cai Guo-Qiang opened his latest exhibition at Fundación Proa in Buenos Aires, his first solo showing in Argentina. Impromptu is a new series of works inspired by his time in the country, which has been at the same time baffling, illuminating, and liberating for his artistic vision. Included are pieces created in collaboration with the National University of Arts and teachers and students of the Municipal Institute of Ceramics of Avellaneda featuring his signature gunpowder drawings, a ceramic creeper that hangs through the library, nine ceramic figurines […]

Previews: Christian Rex Van Minnen “Golden Memes” @ Robischon Gallery

On January 15th, Christian Rex van Minnen will be opening a solo at Robischon Gallery in Denver, Colorado. Titled Golden Memes, the show will be presenting his take on the memes and visual leitmotifs of the Dutch Golden Age and other European Old Master works. With about 10 mostly large scale oils, the New York-based painter will be introducing his twisted version of familiar compositions and imagery that marked this important period in the art history. By mixing this iconic painting style with contemporary pop culture, van Minnen’s paintings are known for their bizarre visual language […]
