Streets: Eine (Mexico)

Street typography connoisseur, Ben Eine, recently paid a trip to Mexico to get up on some walls. With almost a month to paint his signature lettering, the UK-based artist has done alot of damage so far with more to come. In particular, a long piece that spells out “The Bread Of The Rich Is The Struggle Of The Poor” caught out eye. See that piece and more after the jump…

Streets: World Roundup (Jan 16 – Jan 22)

Leading off this week’s summary of wall offerings from around the world is this piece from the duo from Brooklyn – Faile. We’ll be posting up an interesting interview from the two soon, but for now take a look at other notable murals from artists Ludo (Italy) – who has a show at Wunderkammern that opened last night, Sam3 (Spain), John Fekner (Atlanta), 36Recyclab (France), Isaac Cordal (Spain), Kid Acne (UK), MAR & MADSTEEZ (Los Angeles), DAL x Faith47 (New York), Alexandrine Deshayes (France), Triángulo […]

Streets: David Choe, DVS-1, Joseph To (Denver)

After hitting up the new Facebook headquarters at the behest of Mark Zuckerberg, David Choe (featured) headed over to Mile-High City for the Terminal Kings project at the Denver International Airport. While that event (more on this later) also features the work of Sam Flores and Highgraff, David also brought along his friends, artists DVS-1 and Joseph To, to get in on the fun with some high energy collaborations.

Streets: El Mac x Augustine Kofie (Los Angeles) – Part I

Not too long ago, the collaboration between artists El Mac and Augustine Kofie (featured) produced a spectacular mural that took place at the KROQ studios in Los Angeles, California (covered). It was a project which greatly combined the talent of these two artists to produce a music-themed mural. Now the two have once again come together to produce a mural which not only displays their incredible technique but more importantly, it is a project which pays respect to their late friend DASH 2000, a former member […]

Streets: Bumblebee – “Mutual Feeling” (Los Angeles)

As if they do not have enough problems in their lives already, the homeless in Southern California have had quite the struggle recently, ranging from being beaten by a famous frozen yogurt purveyor to being targeted, stalked, and killed by a military vet. News stories like these bring to the forefront that being homeless is still a very real problem for many and it does not only affect men and women that are down on their luck. Young boys and girls are also affected by […]

David Choe Paints Tribute To Beaten Asian Teen

By now, everyone has probably seen the video that went viral which showed a group of people brutally beating a Chicago teenager. Thankfully, it sounds like the Asian victim of the racially motivated attack appears to not have sustained serious injuries. David Choe (featured) recently painted this tribute mural to hopefully bring attention to this issue as well as get some of these cowards put in jail if they can be recognized. See what he had to say after the jump…

Streets / Update: Escif

Besides the work from Escif that we brought you in the last couple months, he has also updated his blog with some walls that we haven’t had a chance to show you. After enjoying these new pics, also take a look at some footage from the Nuart Festival back in October where the Spanish artist put up quite a bit of street work as well as filled a room with a flag based installation (covered). More murals and video after the jump…

Streets: Escif & Blu (Buenos Aires)

While his compadre, Italian street artist Blu was painting up Buenos Aires (here, here, and here), it looks like Escif tagged along (you may also remember their back to back efforts together in Spain here) to work on some walls of his own. His contribution to the Argentinian city-scape is an entertaining step-by-step rendition of how to open a locked door with a credit-card. *Correction* this is a collaboration piece with Blu. More photos after the jump from Buenos Aires Street Art.

Streets: Blu (Argentina) Part III

Masterful street muralist Blu made the most of his time in Argentina apparently. Despite already completing two large murals (here & here) in Buenos Aires, here is news of yet a third large politically charged piece. For this wall, the anonymous Italian painter renders an imposing corporate looking city put together with large buildings that looks to have sprung a leak, spilling out a torrent of money that wreaks havoc on the surrounding small towns and environment. More photos via Buenos Aires Street Art and the […]

Streets: Jeff Soto (Paris)

While in France for a couple shows he was involved with, Jeff Soto (interviewed) also found time to work on a couple public murals (here & here). In addition to those street pieces, the Riverside native also decided on doing something more adventurous. Venturing into an emergency air duct above the tracks on the Paris Metro, he drew with chalk on the textured and grimy walls some imagery from a dream he had the night before. More photos he sent us after the jump…
