Streets: SpY (Bilbao)

SpY recently revealed a clever interactive piece he created in Bilbao. The Spanish artist, who is known for altering the urban environment through his work, once again took a different direction from classic street art with this stand out conceptual work. Working in the very central part of Bilbao, he created the word “Crisis” using 1000€ in 2 cent coins. The currency were glued to the walls and left there for residents to interact with the piece. Although almost worthless when taken out of the context or as a whole in […]

Streets: Nate Frizzell for artBGC ONE (Manila)

A couple weeks ago, Nate Frizzell (interviewed) travelled to the Phillipines to take part in the artBGC ONE Festival. Despite not being a prolific muralist, the Los Angeles-based artist still was able to make his mark painting across the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) with his distinctive imagery of children at play. Curated by LeBasse Projects, and held in conjunction with the Bonifacio Arts Foundation (BAFI), the event also saw artists other international artists like FAILE, CYRCLE, AkaCORLEONE, Kristin Farr, Drew Merritt and Filipino artists Egg Fiasco and Anjo Bolarda join in […]

Tomorrow night (June 13th) in San Francisco, artists and designers Kai & Sunny will be putting on a show at the 886 Geary Gallery entitled The Matter Of Time.

Streets: Wes21 x ONUR – “Big Catch” (Denmark)

Invited in by Galleri KIRK for their Out in the Open project, Wes21 x ONUR painted a massive mural in Aalborg, Denmark entitled Big Catch. The two Swiss artists have been collaborating on murals for a while now and this surreal piece that turns the prey and predator narrative around certainly shows how well their skills mesh together. Look for artists Conor Harrington, Faith47, Robert Proch & Sepe, Guido van Helten, Aryz, and the Etam Crew to make their mark before the event is over…

Streets: Maya Hayuk (Coney Art Walls)

What started out as a sunny Saturday morning eventually turned into nearly five spotty days of thunderstorms, coastline flash flooding and Maya Hayuk relentlessly riding out the storm in pursuit of her craft. As the weather went from bright, blooming and beautiful to dark, dreary and dismal, so also morphed the aesthetic of this incredible wall. The multilayered Maya Hayuk who clearly absorbs the environment in which she inhabits is obviously an introvert, masquerading as a social butterfly. Her process is both beautiful and organic. Many artists would have called it a […]
