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 […]

Over the last several days, Vhils (filmed) has been busy working his magic in downtown Los Angeles with some new murals arranged by LeBasse Projects.

This newest piece features the Portuguese artist’s portraiture chiseled into this wall near Chinatown as per his usual technique. Check out more in-progress photos below… Photo credit: Birdman Photos for Arrested Motion. Discuss Vhils here.

It looks like Phlegm and Pixel Pancho recently collaborated on a pretty elaborate mural in New Zealand for the Dunedin Street Art Festival. Working around some architectural elements as well as some wall foliage, the signature characters from the UK-based Phlegm mixed well with the robotic tendencies of the Italy-based Pixel Pancho. Their work melded seamlessly, in no small part due to Phelgm’s decision to only use brushes and a sepia palette, matching up with the other artist perfectly. Photo credit: Joshua Jeffery.

Both artists spent several days with rollers & brushes with long extensions to each leave their distinctive mark on the city. Discuss Ericailcane […]

Yesterday, despite a recent hoax alleging his arrest, Banksy revealed his new work on his website – Banksy.co.uk. The piece titled The Girl with the Pierced Eardrum was painted the night before at Dockside Studios in Bristol, but shortly after the reveal it got defaced with a splash of black paint. The pieces is a parody of Dutch master painter Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With A Pearl Earring. Using stencil and what seems to be an extinguisher with black paint, the elusive artist created a clever bastardized version incorporating the alarm bell on the […]

Titled Lock, Poster and Shutters, the works where made between October 5th to 10th, using acrylic, sand paper and graphite. These signature artistic tools when modifying the given surface and creating such mirages. Always being focused on the urban context of his […]
