Streets: T&J Art Walk (Oslo) Part III

It’s time to summarize the remaining murals for the T&J Art Walk now after bringing you the walls from Faile, Shepard Fairey, D*Face, and Logan Hicks previously. The other artists involved include The London Police, who threw up the sick piece above, as well as Will Barras, Fenx, Martin Whatson, and Gallo. Keep in mind, the reason behind this event in Oslo was to support of the Human Rights Watch (HRW) and to honor those slain and injured of the terror attack of July 22. We’ll also be bringing you […]

Streets: TrustoCorp (LA) Part 1

Judging from the pictures TrustoCorp sent us, the plan was to take their reality show street satires bi-coastal. The only difference was in New York, they hit up pay phone ads (covered) and in Los Angeles, they used bus bench interventions. You can see a peek of part two of the campaign on the west coast on the sidewalk sticking out behind the benches. We’ll have more on that later but for now, check out more pics of the Somali Shore, Real Housewives of Baghdad, […]

Streets: Freedom Park (Berlin)

Artists, what would you give to paint on a piece of history? That’s exactly what happened recently in Germany as artists like Nunca, Miss Van, and McBess were asked to paint on remnants of the Berlin Wall like Chor Boogie did last year for the Stroke.03 Art Fair. This time, the pieces were organized together into a Freedom Park event organized by Dudes Factory and Lux Pop Art Group. More photos after the jump…

Streets: Walk & Talk Festival (Azores) Part II

Besides the amazing boat mural that Phlegm painted for the Walk & Talk Festival in Azores, Portugal, there were also some other familiar names who got up some quality work. Vhils did his home country proud with some chiseled local portraiture, Interesni Kazki continued to impress (see Ibiza) with another large surreal mural, and Escif threw up a cryptic wall with a dinosaur and block lettering. These fore-mentioned artists along with 26 others (20 of them from Portugal) certainly went a long way in fulfilling the vision of tranforming the […]

Studio Visit / Preview: Cyrcle – “We Never Die” @ Design Matters

Last week, AM paid a visit to the studio of the street art collective known as Cyrcle. Combining their different backgrounds which blend graffiti, fine art and design, the trio will debut their first solo exhibition this coming Thursday over at Design Matters located in West Hollywood. Titled We Never Die, the exhibit will explore the group’s fascination with Classic Romanticism and delve into concepts of death, life, and the gray areas in between. Although the artistic ensemble has been known for their wheat paste […]

Streets: Ron English (Detroit)

Ron English (featured) started his road trip to Detroit recently, looking to bring some of his art to the city including apparently a hand painted “grin balloon.” Along with some walls and billboards plastered with his “popaganda” imagery at the imfamous Packard Plant location, he also raised his profile in the motor city with something inflatable that could be seen from a distance. More photos after the jump…

Streets: ROA (Copenhagen)

After recent visits by Shepard Fairey (covered) and COPE2 (covered), another artist heads over to make his mark in Copenhagen – ROA.  The Belgium-based artist was in town for the Galore Festival taking place in the the cultural zone of Toftegårds place in Valby. For his part, the prolific street artist decided to wrap what looks like a scaled serpent painted in his distinctive anatomic style around a tower. After this, he’ll probably be heading to Vienna soon for his solo opening there on the […]

Studio Visits: David Shillinglaw

Studio visits are probably the most enjoyable things that we get to do here at AM. A little time to talk with the artist about their work, and also a chance to soak up the environment in which the work is created. David Shillinglaw’s environment is a pretty special one. His North London home and studio is situated at the top of an old brick-built warehouse / factory building and the huge loft offers more work and play space than any of the studios than […]

Streets: Shepard Fairey, D*Face, and Logan Hicks for T&J Art Walk (Oslo) Part II

After mentioning Faile’s (featured) wall for the T&J Art Walk (and the fun they had with a ping pong table) earlier in the month in an Overtime article, we thought it was time for an update. The event in Oslo was put on in  support of the Human Rights Watch (HRW) and to allow memorial murals honoring the victims of the horrific terror attack of July 22. This will all culminate with an art show with proceeds to benefit the HRW (but you can also donate here). You can […]

Streets: See No Evil (Bristol) – Summary

After starting things off earlier this week with the Aryz piece for the See No Evil event in Bristol, we return with a summary of some of the work put up throughout the week. The ambitious event featured a long list of street art and graffiti artists including Nick Walker (interviewed) who made sure to represent his home city with a huge mural on one of the buildings lining Nelson Street. More pics after the jump…
