The one and only Blu recently finished this massive wraparound mural in Rome featuring multi-colored faces painted in his usual style. This new project has personal meaning for the Italian street savant as he has been living in and working from the building for about 2 years now, with the painting financed by other residents. It used to be an old military warehouse but has been occupied in recent years by people in need of housing and activists from the “coordinamento cittadino lotta per la casa.” Take a […]

Nychos was another street artist that made his mark during this year’s Basel Week Miami with multiple murals. This particular project on the facade of the Miami Ad School in the Wynwood features two flamingos in the Austrian artists’ s usual dissected style, a welcome addition to the neighborhood with this long necked species being one of the most recognizable in the state. Lucky students will now be able to enjoy this new mural from The Weird Crew member along with other artists who have painted on the pink walls of their […]

While attending this year’s Basel Week Miami, we also walked by a new mural painted by The London Police in the Wynwood district. The crisp linework and iconic LADS characters instantly marked the piece as painted by the famous duo and is a welcome addition to this hotbed of street art activity in Miami. Take a look at more detailed shots of the wall in the photos below… See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami here. Discuss The London Police here.

Another wall that caught our eyes while around Wynwood Walls during Basel Week Miami was a joint effort from Faith47 and Alexis Diaz, a continuation of the The Art of Collaboration program this year (also see Shep x Cleon Peterson). The mural was stunning in person, mixing South Africa-based Faith47’s female portraiture entwined with the darker illustrative style of the Puerto Rican Diaz. Here are some shots of him putting the finishing touches on the piece as well as a look at the entire image. Full image of the wall via […]

Daan Botlek recently spent few weeks in India, traveling and painting. During his stay in Mumbai, he took part in the local St+Art India Festival and created this effective piece on a local elementary school. As usual in his work, he worked in the architectural elements of the building, making the mural blend with the space. Using a limited color palette, and several very effective depth perception tricks, he painted this unique piece – Continental Drift. The title comes from a local passerby who commented that the image reminds him of […]

While walking the Wynwood Walls area, we noticed the always attention-grabbing Anthony Lister (filmed) doing his thing in front of a crowd of people. Using his recognizable loose style, the Australian artist took advantage of the long wall to paint a lady on her side overlaid with some of the frames that he has used before. More photos below… See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami here. Discuss Anthony Lister here.

Every year during Basel Week Miami, AM always spends some time in the Wynwood district checking out the activity as street and graffiti artists put in the time to beautify the area. For 2014, the predominant facilitators in the area, Wynwood Walls, decided to focus on The Art of Collaboration. One of the standouts was this joint effort painting four sides of a building by Los Angeles-based artists and coworkers Shepard Fairey (featured) and Cleon Peterson. Take a look at how their imagery melded perfectly together in […]

Reka recently spent two weeks in Washington, D.C. creating murals for  Art Whino Gallery’s new project. Thhe first one he created was this striking piece seen above at L’enfant Plaza, showing two female figures with something that appears like masks over their faces. Constructed with his signature style of abstract shapes that assemble together in recognizable forms, it is another example of the Australian artist’s skills when it comes to creating crisp sharp line work and combining complementing colors. Along with this piece, the Berlin-based artist collaborated with Polish […]

Nick Walker Love Vandal NYC AM 3

That excellent show featured a new body of work that impressed visitors indoors at a Soho pop-up gallery space. To follow that up, Mr. Walker made sure the good folks of NYC also got a taste of his work outdoors with his iconic Love Vandal (covered) character. This large mural, which was located off 17th street & 6th avenue in a parking lot, caught the […]

Thierry-Noir-German-Embassy-7
After a successful LA debut show last month (covered), Thierry Noir was back in London working on an important commission for the German Embassy for the 25th anniversary of the “Fall of the Wall” in collaboration with Howard Griffin Gallery. The French artist painted his signature portraits on the wall in front of the embassy as well as indoors – the same iconic imagery he was painting between 1984 and 1989 over the existing notorious Berlin wall. Back then, his work was act of rebellion, trying to ridicule the […]
