Over the past week, artists El Mac and Augustine Kofie (featured) collaborated on a wall inside the KROQ radio station complex. For this project, the duo brought forth a mural which fittingly centered around the idea of music. They had previously worked together on a piece inside the 33third Store / Mid-City Arts building, however this time around they focused on a color palette featuring a variety of red, white and dark colors. Although their styles are very different, the two of them managed create […]

After working his magic in Norway with several murals for the Nuart Festival, it looks like the next destination for Spanish street dynamo Escif was France. He took some time to immerse himself in the city of Niort (“history, economical, old factory, architectures, silence of street without cars and ghost in a castel”) before working on some walls for the Festival “Le 4eme Mur” (The 4th Wall).

Rounding out our coverage of this year’s Nuart Festival in Norway are two last artists – Herbert Baglione & Tellas. The Brazil-based Baglione spent most of his time working the walls (above) with some intricate tags that has not been typically for him when compared to his usual figurative style. However, when you realize that these were the names of of the 77 young people that died in the recent Norwegian terror attack, this particular room took on a more powerful and somber mood. Baglione […]

The last time miniature street photographer Slinkachu had a solo, it was March in London and AM was there to witness it in person. Near the end of this month, October 23rd, the UK-based street artist will be taking what he affectionately calls his “little people” to Ludwigsburg for his first solo ever in Germany at Kunstverein Ludwigsburg. Entitled The Big City, which is actually EVERY city for his tiny sculpts when you think about it, the show will consist of a combination of past work and installations as […]

We had only caught up with French graffiti crew Da Mental Vaporz in Copenhagen at the end of August at the Galore Festival and now they are already onto their next project. After returning to their home country, the members traveled to Brest to do their part for the Crimes of Minds festival with one of the best collaborative murals we have seen in a while. Each artist was able to maintain their distinctive style yet the whole was greater than the sum of the […]

The organizer of the Urban Forms Gallery project in Poland, Michael Biezynski, recently sent over some photos of the wall murals to share with our readers. It is rare to say that we enjoyed all the work from every artist that participates in various festivals or events, but in this rare case, we were quite impressed with what every artist created including some that we were not familiar with. Check out what Aryz, Remed, Kenor, M-City, Etam Crew, Sat One, and Sepe/Chazme had to offer […]

One misty morning in Norway, we hiked over to the Obrestad Lighthouse to check out the intricate workings of Lucy McLauchlan. Painting the walls with her signature motifs (also seen in her solo at Lazarides in 2010), the UK-based artist covered the entire tower in doing her part for this year’s Nuart Festival. More photos of the lighthouse and other murals taken by Henrik Haven after the jump…

On a recent trip to Africa to participate in the Wide Open Walls project, the Belgium-based ROA’s animal repertoire took a decidedly more exotic turn. Featuring giraffes, zebras, elephants, monkeys, other common safari sightings, the anatomically-inclined street artist contributed walls to the project that promotes Gambia as a tourist destination. Perhaps that’s why he held back on the usual dissection and other mishaps that typically accompanies the creatures in his imagery. More photos from Ekosystem after the jump…
