Streets: Blu (Rome)

The one and only Blu recently finished this massive wraparound mural in Rome featuring multi-colored faces painted in his usual style. This new project has personal meaning for the Italian street savant as he has been living in and working from the building for about 2 years now, with the painting financed by other residents. It used to be an old military warehouse but has been occupied in recent years by people in need of housing and activists from the “coordinamento cittadino lotta per la casa.” Take a […]

Basel Week Miami ’14 / Streets: The London Police

While attending this year’s Basel Week Miami, we also walked by a new mural painted by The London Police in the Wynwood district. The crisp linework and iconic LADS characters instantly marked the piece as painted by the famous duo and is a welcome addition to this hotbed of street art activity in Miami. Take a look at more detailed shots of the wall in the photos below… See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami here. Discuss The London Police here.

Basel Week Miami ’14 / Streets: Faith47 x Alexis Diaz

Another wall that caught our eyes while around Wynwood Walls during Basel Week Miami was a joint effort from Faith47 and Alexis Diaz, a continuation of the The Art of Collaboration program this year (also see Shep x Cleon Peterson). The mural was stunning in person, mixing South Africa-based Faith47’s female portraiture entwined with the darker illustrative style of the Puerto Rican Diaz. Here are some shots of him putting the finishing touches on the piece as well as a look at the entire image. Full image of the wall via […]

Streets: Daan Botlek (India)

Daan Botlek recently spent few weeks in India, traveling and painting. During his stay in Mumbai, he took part in the local St+Art India Festival and created this effective piece on a local elementary school. As usual in his work, he worked in the architectural elements of the building, making the mural blend with the space. Using a limited color palette, and several very effective depth perception tricks, he painted this unique piece – Continental Drift. The title comes from a local passerby who commented that the image reminds him of […]

While walking the Wynwood Walls area, we noticed the always attention-grabbing Anthony Lister (filmed) doing his thing in front of a crowd of people. Using his recognizable loose style, the Australian artist took advantage of the long wall to paint a lady on her side overlaid with some of the frames that he has used before.
