Ron English (featured) started his road trip to Detroit recently, looking to bring some of his art to the city including apparently a hand painted “grin balloon.” Along with some walls and billboards plastered with his “popaganda” imagery at the imfamous Packard Plant location, he also raised his profile in the motor city with something inflatable that could be seen from a distance.

After recent visits by Shepard Fairey (covered) and COPE2 (covered), another artist heads over to make his mark in Copenhagen – ROA. The Belgium-based artist was in town for the Galore Festival taking place in the the cultural zone of Toftegårds place in Valby. For his part, the prolific street artist decided to wrap what looks like a scaled serpent painted in his distinctive anatomic style around a tower. After this, he’ll probably be heading to Vienna soon for his solo opening there on the […]
After mentioning Faile’s (featured) wall for the T&J Art Walk (and the fun they had with a ping pong table) earlier in the month in an Overtime article, we thought it was time for an update. The event in Oslo was put on in support of the Human Rights Watch (HRW) and to allow memorial murals honoring the victims of the horrific terror attack of July 22. This will all culminate with an art show with proceeds to benefit the HRW (but you can also donate here). You can […]
After starting things off earlier this week with the Aryz piece for the See No Evil event in Bristol, we return with a summary of some of the work put up throughout the week. The ambitious event featured a long list of street art and graffiti artists including Nick Walker (interviewed) who made sure to represent his home city with a huge mural on one of the buildings lining Nelson Street. More pics after the jump… Photos by NRJP except Sickboy & Mysterious Al Van, Beejoir and smaller Nick […]
After featuring some of Interesni Kazki’s impressive surrealistic murals in Barcelona and Russia here on AM, we turn to their newest wall, this time in Ibiza. The Ukranian street duo were in town for Bloop Festival, an art event focusing on an interesting phenomenon – an extremely powerful underwater sound detected by the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) years ago with the source of the sound is still unknown. Another look at their Dali-esque interpretation after the jump… Discuss Interesni Kazki here.
Ever since covertly blowing up the crispy clean streets of Zurich with even crispier artwork (covered) in preparation for his first major solo exhibition, La Belle Vie (covered), earlier this year, French street artist LUDO (interviewed) has for the most part been quietly resting, poised to strike at any moment. That moment has arrived, with a productive adventure in the US where he went coast to coast getting up in the three major cities. The signature green tinged, hand-drawn wheatpastes, smartly fusing the natural with […]
Despite a time-consuming process of producing the recently released handmade and silkscreened Illuminated Alphabet zine, Phlegm continues to find time to put in work on the streets. This amazing new piece continues his fascination with aquatic vessels and was painted for the recent Walk & Talk Festival in Azores, Portugal and only took four days despite its massive size and detail. Among the other 30 artists making appearances on São Miguel island were Vhils, Interesni Kazki, and Escif. More pics after the jump via Unurth.
Continuing our summary of Anthony Lister’s (interviewed) murals while he was in Los Angeles (see the first set of walls here), we turn our attention to the last four locations. Including this photoset will be his work at the Ironlak store (above), De La Barracuda Part II, as well as spots in Melrose and Venice. His show at HVW8 came and went but the prolific Aussie definitely left his mark on the City of Angels while he was here. Photos after the jump by Carlos […]
Since the TrustoLand installation and show at Art Basel Week Miami last year, we haven’t had any updates on satiric street pranksters TrustoCorp. As of late though, there has been more activity spotted around New York, but we wanted to first bring your attention to these phone booth interventions featuring parodies of popular reality shows with The Real Housewives of Baghdad seen above and The Real World [North Korea] seen after the jump… Photos by SMKjr.

After celebrating his 1000th piece placed in the streets with a huge show in Paris, it looks like Invader is continuing onward towards 2000. Take a look at these new pieces in the Brazilian street art mecca of São Paulo. Of interest are the daring placements, the use of tiles with local flavor, locations next to local talent, and even a rare throw-up from the French street tile master. Perhaps he is in town for a group show opening this weekend at São Paulo Museum […]
A host of international street artist are starting to descend on the city of Bristol as they prepare for the opening of the See No Evil art and music event this weekend. Participants include some of the talent you have seen on AM through the years including Best Ever, El Mac, Mr Jago, Mysterious Al, Nick Walker, She One, Sick Boy, Xenz, Zeus, and organizer Inkie. Leading things off though is rising star Aryz as he starts on one of the facades of the ten […]
Again it’s been a busy couple of weeks for street art in London. AM was happy to catch sight of some new work by Mr Penfold, collaborating with Sweet Toof and a brilliant bandit style shutter with the prolific Malarky whose work seems to be going up everywhere. Either collaborating with Ronzo, Pop 187, Kata, Word to Mother and Vinnie Nylon, the streets seem to be taking on a bold and colourful make over with playful characters adorning the shutters and walls of Shoreditch. We also […]
