POW! WOW! ’14 / Streets: Roid x Insa (Part I)

British artists Roid and Insa are part of “team England” at this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii,  working on an impressive and unusual collaboration. The two are creating another piece in Insa’s ongoing series of moving GIF-ITI’s, which features the interesting concept of creating street art that comes to life when put online in the form of animated gif. Taking full advantage of the strong connection between street art and internet, gif-iti’s are literally giving a new dimension to flat and static graffiti works. AM spent […]

POW! WOW! ’14: Murals – First Look

Take […]

Streets: Risk, Meggs, Insa, Uglar, Echo – Abandoned Water Park Project

One of our contributing photographers in the past, Birdman, recently arranged for some artists to paint in an abandoned water park located somewhere in the Mojave Desert between California and Las Vegas. The project in association with VNA saw Risk, Meggs, Insa (along with some suicide girls decked out in Insa gear), Uglar, and Echo made their mark in and around the structures that exuded the aura of a failed American Dream. More photos from the can be seen in Issue 24 of Very Nearly Almost Magazine with some […]

Streets: INSA for The Vaford Gates (Hong Kong)

Earlier this month, the UK-based INSA returned to Hong Kong for a set of murals at The Vaford Gates in Chai Wan.

The project at this former old factory building location plans to feature a rotating cast of local and international artist so we’ll be sure to see more action soon… Discuss INSA here.
