Showing: Pixelpancho – “Androidèi” @ Galleria Varsi

On the 19th of February, Galleria Varsi in Rome opened a solo show by Italian street artist Pixelpancho. For Androidèi, the Turin-born artist transformed the entire gallery into a setting of one of his familiar works. Known for large murals that incorporate elements of his country’s rich history combined with vintage, futuristic, and even steampunk elements, Pixelpancho approached installing this show in a similar manner. Turning the whole interior into a piece, where exhibited works on paper and canvas were only details of the greater installation, […]

Showing: Paper Party 3 @ “Galerie Le Feuvre”

On January 14th, Galerie Le Feuvre in Paris opened the 3rd edition of the annual Paper Party group show.

Opening: Pixel Pancho – ‘Memory of Life’ @ StolenSpace

Streets: World Roundup (Oct 13 – Jan 12)

During the winter months, we typically see a slowdown of street activity due to the colder weather. After a brief hiatus, our Streets: World Roundup feature returns with a summary of the intervening months. Leading things off is this Invader (who has a new website) piece that is seen in a new light in the wake of the tragic events that went down recently in the French artist’s home base (photo by tofz4u). Other notable walls come from ROA – Germany (source), Herakut – USA, […]

Je Suis Charlie

With the world’s attention on Paris after the tragic events that unfolded today, artists around the world have shown their solidarity with the French people by doing what they do best – making art. Inspired by the phrase “Je Suis Charlie” or “I Am Charlie,” creatives like Hanksy above have shown their support for freedom of expression with “cartoons” of their own. Take a look at a small sampling below…                               […]

Streets: Phlegm x Pixel Pancho (New Zealand)

It looks like Phlegm and Pixel Pancho recently collaborated on a pretty elaborate mural in New Zealand for the Dunedin Street Art Festival. Working around some architectural elements as well as some wall foliage, the signature characters from the UK-based Phlegm mixed well with the robotic tendencies of the Italy-based Pixel Pancho. Their work melded seamlessly, in no small part due to Phelgm’s decision to only use brushes and a sepia palette, matching up with the other artist perfectly. Photo credit: Joshua Jeffery.

Showing: “Timeline” @ Underdogs Gallery

The year is coming to a close and as with any year’s passing we tend to stop and reflect. In doing so, we can certainly say this was the year of the Underdogs. And by Underdogs, we mean a band of art activists turning Lisbon upside down with one large scale mural project after another, rivaling cities five times its population. The year ending show at the Underdogs Gallery appropriately titled TIMELINE takes pause to celebrate not only the year’s incredible accomplishments, but the the marking of […]

Streets: Vhils x Pixel Pancho (Lisbon)

With some recent articles, we have introduced to you several public murals arranged by the Underdogs platform in Lisbon as well as some gallery shows. We now have another street piece to share with you in the same vein – a collaboration between Vhils and Pixel Pancho. The joint wall saw the locally-based Vhils mix his chiseled technique with the Italian Pixel Pancho’s robotic imagery leading an interesting interaction of disparate styles.
