Banksy – “Dismaland” @ Tropicana (Weston Super Mare – UK), Walls

Though the main focus of Dismaland was on art and creating installations & sculptures that visitors can interact with, Banksy and his team involved other artists that either visually or otherwise match his aesthetics or theme. So along with the ones presenting their gallery works, they included several artists whose primary form or place of expression are the streets or public spaces. These days where street art is building almost a negative reputation of being generic, decorative and more about quantity (or size), than the quality (or message), the […]

Openings: Banksy – “Dismaland” (Evening View)

If you’ve been following our visit to the UK to experience Banksy’s theme park Dismaland in the UK, you probably think you’ve see it all. But what’s a true to form artistic replica of Disney’s magic kingdom if it doesn’t work at night? Besides isn’t that when the magic is suppose to truly happen? Well, we stuck around to catch the “Bemusement Park” transform during the August 21st evening VIP session. Disappoint it did not as Banksy and company hit their mark to build a corporate playland, complete with a full drumming […]

Last month, prolific muralist ROA (interviewed) was in Townsville painting a few of his favorite things. Commissioned by the city council as part of the Street Art Activation Framework in a push to make the city the arts capital of the North Australia, the Belgium painter has once again chosen local fauna as his inspiration – the Goanna, Sugar Glider, and turtle resting on top of a crocodile. Take a look photos of the three murals below… Photo credit: Regan Tamanui (top image) & Tom Dickson (other images). […]

Nuart ’15 / Streets: DOLK

Getting a jump on the 2015 Nuart Festival (which official starts on September 5th), Norway’s own DOLK recently hit the streets of Stavanger to put up some fresh street pieces with a new abstract expressionist style. These works are apparently the beginning of a global series of 100 that take a radical departure from DOLK’s usual style.

Streets: James Bullough (Richmond)

For those who enjoyed the mural James Bullough painted at the Long Beach Museum of Art (covered), take a look at what he followed it up with. Going big in Virginia for the Richmond Mural Project last month, the Berlin-based artist got up on the side of building situated on Lombardy & Broad streets. His portraiture oftentimes features the image broken up sporadically like it was transmitted with glitches, resulting in a signature fractured look. Photo credit: Benjah Photography.

Streets: Aryz (Venezuela)

Recently in Maracay, Venezuela, Aryz completed a massive new mural with the help of Huellas del Arte. Painting on a wall that spanned ten stories high, the prolific Spanish street artist chose to create a touching portrait of a father holding his son in his signature aesthetic. Aryz further states – “As far as I’ve seen, Venezuela is an amazing place, however it is in a tough moment because there is big interest by many countries to make Venezuela collapse. In this type of projects you don’t have the […]
