As part of the continuing L.I.S.A Project in New York City’s Little Italy, Crash and Daze were recently invited to collaborate on a wall on Mulberry Street. For the two legendary NY writers, the mural was a natural extension of their friendship and professional lives as they share a studio together and were one of the first to make the jump from the streets to the gallery back in the 80’s. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: Joe Russo for Arrested Motion. Discuss Crash […]

To commemorate the 40 year anniversary of the death of Fabrizio Ceruso, Blu has painted a new mural in San Basilio, a district of Rome. The teenager died after being shot in the chest during the protests that erupted after the government tried to evict some of the houses occupied by 150 families in the area. The saint that gives his namesake to the district can be seen moving against the protestors along with the authorities. As you can imagine, using imagery that depicts the police […]
London based abstract artist O.Two is currently in France painting a commissioned wall at a large concert venue in La Rochelle and he sent us along a few progress pictures of the piece coming together.

Also known as James Carey, O.Two is combining the trip with an exhibition at Winterlong Galerie set to open this Thursday, September 18th entitled Flux. The show will feature 10 new paintings […]

The stunning new piece rendered in the South Africa-based artist’s signature aesthetic is entitled Persistent Parabola and features a wave playing with a cargo ship and falling crates. Dal states his primary influence for this wall as an old Chinese proverb – “water can carry a boat, it can also turn […]

The main idea behind this complex project was to create and cover aprox 2.5 km of the fence around the park with world class street art and installations. After their first part of the undertaking titled Your Ad Here, which was completed at the end of April 2014, the team continued by commissioning four artists to created their take on this unique […]
UK-based artist Phlegm has just finished an outdoor installation (which will be on display until September 28) at the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden. We had the opportunity to follow the him as he worked at the piazza entrance for the Festival of Myth, part of a project curated by Minna Moore Ede of the National Gallery and the Royal Ballet. Influenced by the Greek myths Prometheus & Leda and the Swan, cut out wooden panels build an imposing sculptural fortress that stands tall where Phlegm’s signature […]
