Streets / Recap: ALT!rove Festival 2015 (Italy)

After sharing one of the first murals painted for this year’s ALT!rove – Street Art Festival from Clemens Behr, it’s now time to give you a recap of the event. The theme of the public arts program for this year was abstraction and the curatorial staff did a good job choosing the right artists for the job.

Previews: ‘Rewire’ @ Gamma Transport Division (Edinburgh)

Art and music have long enjoyed a reciprocal relationship. Take the album cover for example. For years, musicians have found or commissioned visual artists to portray an aesthetic that resonates with the contents of the sleeve resulting in a complete aural and visual package. Gamma Proforma’s forthcoming exhibition and project Rewire flip reverses this process with a collection of artworks produced by visual artists forming the inspiration for a series of sonic interpretations of the artworks by musicians.

Streets: Le 4eme MUR 2012 – Recap

After reporting on Escif’s murals for Le 4eme MUR last year (here & here), we now have a recap of the 2012 edition.

Openings / Streets: FAME Festival 2010

As with previous years, Angelo has invited a stylistically and geographically diverse selection of renowned and, at least for now, less recognized artists to decorate the walls of his hometown as they see […]
