Recap / Streets: No Limit Boras Festival

The Swedish city of Boras recently hosted a street art event between the 4th and 7th of September. Inviting some recognizable names from the street art world, the organizers of the No Limit Boras Festival were aiming to turn the city’s public space into an outdoor exhibition. Following the worldwide trend of inviting street artists to beautify dull urban facades, this event in a way opposes the strict “zero tolerance” policy that’s in effect all around the country. We recently received these photos of the finished murals by Kobra from Brazil […]

Streets: Eduardo Kobra (New York)

Featured as our Art Focus artist back in May (here), Sao Paulo-based street artist Eduardo Kobra has traveled to New York City for a mural project. The two-level public art piece features his remix of the famous Alfred Eisenstaedt photograph from the V-J celebrations in Times Square marking the end of U.S. hostilities with Japan. This new wall from the Brazilian painter can be seen from the High Line so we suggest those those in New York who are interested should take a stroll to […]

Art Focus: Eduardo Kobra

He has also worked on projects with major corporations such as Coca Cola, Nestlé, Chevrolet, Ford, Roche, Johnnie Walker, just to name a few. More photos of his work after the jump…
