Last we saw of Conor Harrington (interviewed), he was hitting London with an impressive new collection of paintings at Lazarides (covered) of which you can see the some of the photoshoot and photoreferences here by the way. While the successful showing was no doubt satisfying, it did not quench his thirst for outdoor work. On a recent trip back to his home country, he painted this new quickie mural outside of Lurgan, Ireland. Discuss Conor Harrington here.

Last week, we shared some photos of Olek as she returned to her hometown for the Katowice Street Art Festival where she yarnbombed excavators. She wasn’t the only street artist to hit up the Polish city because a steady stream of urban beautifiers have put up work of their own including Mark Jenkins (interviewed) with a attention grabbing tug-of-war installation and Escif with a huge on-off switch. If you remember, we also included the piece by Ludo (interviewed) earlier this week in our Streets: World Roundup. Take a look […]

SHEONE has been a busy little bee since his Paris collabo with Nick Walker. Traveling down to West Africa, the legendary writer worked on the ZION STREET PROJECT created by Wide Open Walls.

There really is too much to talk about here, […]

Poster Boy - "C BS" in New York.
Our weekly summary of street work is lead off by this new piece by the Mexico-based Liqen, whose attention to detail and surreal imagery has not gone unnoticed. He states – “This April I was invited by the “collective tomato” to paint a mural on a recovery project Xanenetla neighborhood, a neighborhood with lots of history to Mexico in the city of Puebla. ”Elotl” in pre-Hispanic Nahuatl language, corn (maize cob) is the staple food of this nation, I wanted to join the family idea how strong is palpable here, making each grain a person or animal, as a unit of a set. For some time I kept this idea to represent Mexico. Other notable walls last week include work from […]
