Streets: Slinkachu (Russia)

It appears cold weather hasn’t deterred the skills and intentions of street miniaturist Slinkachu. The London-based artist continues to hit up major metropolitan areas around the world (the theme of his last solo show) – this time in Gorky Park (Moscow, Russia). Looks like his tiny people sculptures should watch out for giants aka humans. Discuss Slinkachu here.

Streets: MOMO x Eltono – “Impropbables” (France)

After recently working on a mural in Miami (covered), MOMO headed to Besancon, France where he collaborated with Eltono on a series of public installations they entitled Impropbables. Sharing a penchant for geometric shapes and color theory, the two artists created a series of street interventions in 52 different locations with found materials, a hand saw, and a rubber mallet. Those interested in looking deeper into this series of works may be interested in purchasing a zine they published on the project here. Via Graffuturism. Discuss Momo here.

"Sum Times" by Aakash Nihalani

Streets: Aakash Nihalani – “Sum Times” Series

After sharing with you something we quite liked from Aakash Nihalani that he did for the Nuart Festival earlier this year, we were pleased to see that he has expanded on that piece in a series of works. Entitled Sum Times, the carefully executed pieces take advantage of existing urban elements and creatively applies the concepts of mathematics to them. Continuing to push the limits of the geometric forms that grew from the street placement of his original medium of choice – tape – Nihalani has introduced a new exciting facet in […]

Streets: Metlac Bridge Graffiti (Mexico)

Taking risks is certainly part of every graffiti artist’s job description, but here is an example that even some seasoned writers may have a problem with – especially if they have a fear of heights. Braving a narrow ledge on the side of highest railroad bridge in North America (430 feet high), some young guns have recently tagged the Metlac Bridge in Veracruz, Mexico to make their names known. If these photos are enough or if you have questions about their authenticity, head over here to […]

Streets: 0331c (Moscow)

We have one more piece from the streets to share with you before we close the chapter on this year’s Christmas festivities. It was -25°C in Moscow recently, but that didn’t stop 0331c and his friends from holding their own celebration of the holiday season with the creation of a graffiti Xmas tree on the side of a building. Check the video and more photos below… Photo Credit: Ekosystem.

Merry Christmas from Escif

One of the most prolific street artists out there, Escif, apparently hasn’t taken Christmas off. He’s been on a roll as of late with increasingly more edgy and political imagery (for example here & here), not surprising as the depressing situation in Spain is fertile ground for inspiration. This recent wall in Valencia features his take on the Christmas tree. Discuss Escif here.

Basel Week Miami ’12 / Streets: Kenny Scharf

One of the sad stories present in every street art fan’s mind while attending Basel Week Miami this year was the passing of Tony Goldman. Instrumental in revitalizing the Wynwood area with his support of murals and public art, there were multiple tributes to the man during this year’s event. Kenny Scharf, a perennial visitor to Miami, also painted a wall in remembrance of Goldman at the Tony Goldman Memorial Garden. Check out more photos below… Photo credit: Birdman.

Streets: World Roundup (Dec 10 – Dec 16)

Our global summary of street work returns this week with a look around the world but heavily tilted towards Florida due to Basel Week Miami.

Other notable pieces come from RONE – Miami, Meggs – Miami, Phibs – Miami, Escif – France, Belin x Koka – Mexico (source), Dabs Myla truck – Miami, Prime […]
