Other murals to admire on earth this week include work from Inti – […]

Other artists we are excited see work […]
Spanish street artist Escif never seems to stop, with each new mural (often times with a political message) documented on his blog street against. This time, the prolific painter headed over to Cerro de Pasco, Perú to work on a new piece pointing out another injustice. He states – “In order to expand the vast open pit from which the deposits of minerals are extracted, each year entire neighbourhoods in the town are demolished and their residents forced to relocate.” Discuss Escif here.

Despite some setbacks, the little town in Italy now has some mural love from the Ukraine. Discuss Fame Festival here. Discuss Interesni Kazki here.
