Streets: Escif (Spain)

Spanish artist Escif recently did a whole series of new street murals titled Fast Food Is Not a Crime on the streets of his hometown, Valencia. Known for his simple imagery, and use of colors that blend with the surroundings, these 4 pieces show the most recognizable fast food meals out there – hamburgers, hot-dogs, fries and pizza. The images are shown along with a simple line of text which is another trademark of his. Coming from a country with a rich culinary history, these […]

Streets: World Roundup (Oct 28 – Dec 1)

It’s time for another roundup of street art around the world that we didn’t have a chance to cover in-depth. First up is a mural from Case in Erfurt, Germany for the OQ Paint project.

Streets: Escif (Russia)

Prolific muralist Escif recently visited Russia where he created several simple but striking public pieces. Known for his open commentary on the modern world (especially on the topics of politics and the economy), the Spanish street artist found it an extra challenge this time to create works in such a sensitive environment. Originally invited by the The best city on the Earth festival in Moscow, the artist was straight away confronted with the way things work when his original sketch for the mural was rejected. In […]

Streets: Escif (Denmark)

After bringing you photos of the work Brad Downey and Sam3 put in for the Public Art project (co-curated by Henrik Haven) in Horsens, Denmark, we now want to share with you what Escif painted for the event. The Spanish muralist created three pieces - How to survive Horsens (the large wall seen above with characters practicing self-defense, a nod to the town’s bad reputation which is slowly improving with its strong focus on art & culture), Baruck Pizza (a clever piece that mimics the pizza restaurant right next […]

Streets: Escif (Valencia)

Spanish muralist and street artist, Escif, was very active in his hometown of Valencia in Spain the last couple of months. Famous for his clever, direct and punchy commentaries on modern society, capitalism, consumerism, economy and politics (especially current situation in Spain and European Union), the artist shared couple of his recent street works online via StreetAgainst.com. Focused on wide range of different subjects, the pieces are all showcased with his signature, recognizable style – a simple, almost innocent looking image that is hiding a […]
