Streets: Ron English (New York)

Over the weekend, Ron English (featured) made the most of his turn at the iconic Bowery & Houston wall in New York with a mural that was wheatpasted then hand finished with paint. The imagery chosen is a good representation of his work with the background being the American flag made up of modified company logos and slogans that speak to English’s satirical attack on consumerism, while the center features one of his most recognized surreal characters – the Temper Tot or “Baby Hulk.” Take a look at more photos and a […]

Streets: Bezt x Natalia Rak (Caserta)

While Sainer was taking a studio break by painting a large mural in Lisbon (covered), the other half of Etam Cru, Bezt was invited to Caserta, Italy for the Memorie Urbane Festival where he was joined by his fiancee Natalia Rak. As you can see, this art couple collaborated on a diptych mural painted on the opposite sides of the same five story building. Titled Romeo & Julia, the mural consists of their portraits facing each other around the building. Bezt painted Natalia and the other way around, utilizing similar […]

Streets: Sainer (Lisbon)

One half of the art duo known as Etam Cru, Sainer, recently continued his collaboration with Underdogs collective in Portugal. After releasing an exclusive limited edition lithograph with them last year (covered), the Polish artist just visited Lisbon again and painted an impressive new mural. Covering the entire facade of a 10 story building, Crossroads is a clean example of Etam Cru’s recognizable work. Done in a slightly new style which Sainer has been trying out lately, the image features an older woman crossing the road while smoking […]

Streets: Faith47 – “Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem” (Johannesburg)

Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem is the name of a new mural from Faith47 in Johannesburg on the corner of Fox and Rissik street. The piece captures some zebras in action along with a phrase that references Virgil’s Aeneid paraphrased by the artist – “the one safety for the vanquished is to abandon hope of safety. Surrendering to the knowledge that there is no hope, can bring deep courage.” The mural spanning two sides of an old, now-vacant department store, and the imagery brings movement to the fast-transforming […]

Streets: Ernest Zacharevic (Los Angeles)

After making his mark in Hawaii for POW! WOW!, Ernest Zacharevic traveled across the Pacific to spend some time in Los Angeles. While there, he worked on a mural in Culver City ( 3201 La Cienega Ave) on a building along with Nosego and Hueman, which was organized by Branded Arts. Featured a tattered Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs living out of a shopping cart, the new piece features the Lithuanian artist’s dry wit as well as his signature incorporation of found three-dimensional elements to his work.

Streets: Miss Van x Dan Quintana x Victor Castillo x Esao Andrews (Los Angeles)

Last month, a group of friends got together to work on the walls of a costume shop on Fairfax Ave in West Hollywood. The project saw a street art legend in Miss Van teaming up with fellow artists who may not share the same experience getting up in the public arena but who feature the same surrealist vision in their artwork. Dan Quintana, Victor Castillo, and Esao Andrews more than held their own with the French artist, while also taking time to try on some […]

Streets: Phlegm for Public 2015 (Australia)

Working on a massive new project in Western Australia, Phlegm has painted over four 36 meter high grain silos near the Wheatbelt town of Northam for PUBLIC 2015, arranged by FORM. Working 10 hours a day for two weeks straight, the prolific British street artist left his mark with a series of impossible flying machines (inspired by the area’s  iconic hot air balloons) and his signature characters rendered beautifully in his usual manner. Four of the other CBH Group silos at their Avon site to the right were […]

Streets: El Mac “Ánimo Sin Fronteras” (El Paso)

Right after finishing his mural in Ciudad Juarez (covered), El Mac crossed over to El Paso and painted another striking portrait piece. Like the Juarense y Poderosa, Ánimo Sin Fronteras is also a homage to people from the US/Mex border region that suffered or lost someone to violence, corruption and injustice in the last near-decade. Ánimo Sin Fronteras (Spirit Without Borders), is created in his signature technique using only aerosol and fatcaps. This unique painting method require a high level of skills and can control, and […]
