Recently in Rovereto, a city in Northern Italy, Ericailcane and Bastardilla painted two walls that both featured their artistic takes on bicycling.

Both artists spent several days with rollers & brushes with long extensions to each leave their distinctive mark on the city. Discuss Ericailcane […]

Street muralist and fine artist, Ericailcane, opened his solo museum show at Museum of Contemporary Art in Bogota on the 23rd of November.

After reporting on Escif’s murals for Le 4eme MUR last year (here & here), we now have a recap of the 2012 edition. The festival’s name (translated to “the fourth wall”) is a theater expression that symbolizes a virtual wall between the actor and the public which can apparently also be applied to the work of the street artist and his audience. This year’s lineup includes a return of Escif along with Mr Jago, Vhils (above), Tellas, Ericailcane, and 108. Check out more photos below…
