On Friday, the street muralist Hyuro opened her show Casual Anamolies at the Starkart Gallery. The Spain-based artist who is originally from Buenos Aires as made a name for herself getting up all over the world, most recently in Norway for the ______ capitalism? event and Nuart Festival. For her first solo in Zurich, she tried to cast aside her old way of working to create a fresh new set of works, much of it conceptual, exploring intimate representations of the human condition, isolated in breathless […]

Other than the collaboration with Eine, the ever hustling ROA also found time for other projects while in town for Art Basel Week (like the wall you see above). We are always fascinated by the ways the Belgium-based street painter works in unique architectural quirks into his milieu of anatomized animal murals. This piece above is no different with this marine friend of his chopped in half by a wall element with some copious drips emphasizing the point. More detailed photos after the jump…

Using his unique skills over several days, the influential writer got up this abstract and multicolored gem for his fans in South Florida to enjoy. Thankfully, photographer Koshin Finley was on hand to document everything with his lens. More photos after the jump…

Recently, Mexican-born graffiti artist Sego arrived in Los Angeles and painted a mural on the back of the Mid City Arts complex. Having arrived from Miami where he was part of the Wynwood Walls project, Sego wasted no time during his time in L.A. with this large scale rendering of a creature which feels both organic and fantastical. Utilizing a color palette and style that has subtle roots in Mexican art, Sego is making strides in trying to bring attention to the growing and often […]

A major player during this year’s Art Basel Week Miami, it seemed like RETNA (featured) and his work was in demand everywhere. Not only did we see his handiwork at the Primary Projects group show, in the Wynwood District, and at various fairs, we also had the chance to attend a Q&A session at his temporary luxury home on Hibiscus Island. The mural seen above though was probably the largest wall we saw from him in Miami, and is located near Ron English’s piece from 2009. More photos […]

This $100,000 bill recently showed up in New York, along the re-purposed train tracks known as The High Line. The First $100,000 I Ever Made is the work of famed American conceptual artist John Baldessari and is displayed prominently on a 25-foot-by-75-foot billboard (above 18th St). This example of art near or on the famed pedestrian walkway is the first we have seen since KAWS and FriendsWithYou. More photos by Bill Orcutt after the jump…

COPE2 for Wynwood Walls in Miami.
This week’s world roundup of street work is heavily tilted towards Art Basel Week Miami. With so many artists in town, there was bound to be some overlap on walls and in some cases – collaborations.

Also included from Miami is more from COPE2, Aiko, ABOVE, JAZ, Anthony Lister x Eine, Pixel Pancho. Other walls from other parts of the world […]

Street activity has definitely been strong during Art Basel Week Miami, and this is one of the things that sets it apart from the more prestigious original fair in Switzerland. While walking through the myriad of streets where murals were being put up, we passed by Aussie couple Dabs Myla as they painted this piece. The wall was sponsored by LRG and was almost completed by the time the sun went down yesterday. More photos after the jump…
