One of the coolest examples of Faile’s outdoor works are the Prayer Wheels (featured) which first debuted at their Lost in Glimmering Shadows show in the UK. These sculptural works are engineered to spin in place while people meditated to their favorite images from the collective. In the past few years, the duo have placed these awesome pieces outdoors for the people to enjoy. Now, they’ve sent us pictures of the latest street intervention which they have deployed near McCarren Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Check […]
Making use of their time in Los Angeles wisely (also see their street piece in Culver City), German duo Hera and Akut moved on to their next project – a wall with fellow Ma’claim crew member Case aka Andreas von Chrzanowski. While Akut used his photorealism skills on some signature characters with Hera, Case worked on some giant birds to interact with the children. The sweet mural was hosted by Mark Aiella, and located at Manual Arts High School where he is a teacher. The artists along with […]
It looks like the warmer weather in Italy has allowed Blu to get up more recently (see Bologna & Palestra). While the last two murals were collaborations with compatriot Ericailcane, this time Mr. Blu went at it alone in Jesi with this piece done over the Easter holiday. A hint at how he feels about religion? Discuss Blu here.
Apparently, TED prize winner JR is still in Los Angeles working on his massive The Wrinkles of the City project. We thought he had finished the series of walls (see Venice & Melrose) and left town after his TED acceptance speech, but now we see a new piece is up on the side of the Sushi Roku in West Hollywood. The French street photographer must have taken a break to enjoy his part of the Art in the Street exhibition. Take a look at another pic […]
Angelinos have been privy to a lot of great street art recently, not to mention the landmark Art in the Streets exhibition currently showing at the MOCA. Another impressive piece (organized by LA Art Machine) went up recently from the Sao Paolo-based Claudio Ethos on Main & 5th Street and is his biggest mural to date according to Unurth. More photos after the jump… Via Unurth. Discuss Ethos here.
With a little down time between the opening of Outside/In at LeBasse Projects and moving on to New Hampshire for the second part of their group show, Herakut worked their magic on a couple walls (arranged by the gallery and Warren Brand) in Los Angeles. The pensive children featured on the murals seemed to have a lighter feel when compared to the indoor work perhaps in no small part influenced by an in-person photo reference. More photos after the jump thanks to Jeremy Asher Lynch. […]
Phlegm, who recently completed the Black/Light project in London, has been active on the streets recently. Take a look at this sweet mural completed near a riverbank entitled The Harnessing of Giant Squids featuring some of his signature characters wrestling with their catch. The piece will photograph quite nicely when the winter water levels rise reminiscent of the Banksy Global Warming stencil in Camden. If you notice a nautical theme in some of his work recently, perhaps it’s related to a comic he is working […]
Although it was surprising Los Angeles did not get gifted any new Banksy pieces in the weeks leading up to the opening of the MOCA Art in the Streets exhibition, it looks like the anonymous street artist has produced a new piece in his native land. This stencil, which has not been confirmed on Mr. B’s website yet, appeared in central London over the Easter holiday and is in the same area where his famous One Nation Under CCTV used to be. More pics after […]
As AM ran through the streets of New York’s Midtown district we had the pleasure of catching Will Ryman’s latest outdoor installation – The Roses. Made possible with support from Paul Kasmin Gallery, Will created beautiful giant sized floral sculptures that lined each street center from 57th to 67th streets along the prestigious Park Avenue in NYC. Standing up to 25 feet, the impressive installations captured the hearts and cameras of all who passed by. Ryman’s large-scale figurative sculptures was a perfect compliment the busy […]
UK-based street artist Ben Eine, who recently showed in SF (covered), made the trip down to Southern California soon after as we saw him at both the D*Face opening and of course participating at the Art in the Streets exhibition (covered) at the MOCA. Just like in San Francisco, he found time to work on some street typographical magic, this time on the LA Weekly building. More images of the crossword themed piece after the jump… Photos by Shannon Cottrell as seen on LA Weekly. […]
Although we didn’t see any of his work in the Art in the Streets exhibition at the MOCA last week (probably related to the controversial buffing of his mural), most people still consider Blu one of the most important street artists at the moment. In fact, both him and fellow Italian artist Ericailcane (who recently collaborated on a mural in Bologna) are some of our favorites out there and they reaffirm our love for their work with this recent mural they are working on in […]
As mentioned in our coverage of his debut gallery exhibition in Zurich, LUDO (interviewed) spent a good amount of time out on the streets in advance of the opening pasting up a whole host of smart, sizable pieces. Interestingly, due to the diligently cleaned Swiss streets and serious lack of street art, not only was the Paris-based artist advised to not attend, the gallery went so far as to preempt any unnecessary hindrances to the opening and published an article in the local newspaper explicitly […]
