See all the photos after the jump…

Art Focus: Peter Fuss

For our Art Focus this week, we turn our attention to Polish street artist Peter Fuss. In particular, we like his series of billboard takeovers and his take on social-political issues. No topic seems to be off-limit including the high-priced world of contemporary art, religion, turmoil in the Middle East, as well as more sardonic and witty items. Take a look at more examples of his work after the jump…

Streets: Anthony Lister (Los Angeles)

Last time we saw Anthony Lister in Los Angeles, he painted a mural (covered) based on the film The Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Now the Aussie artist is back in LA where he is preparing for his solo show at New Image Art (previewed). While here, he’s making the most of his time by also hitting up a Culver City location which is becoming a prominent mural spot for street artists as evidenced by walls from Herakut (covered), David Flores (covered), Cyrcle. (covered), Andrew […]
Hush in San Francisco.

Streets: World Roundup (Jan 23 – Jan 29)

We lead off this week’s street roundup from around the globe with this new piece from Mobstr with another one of his witty one-liners. Other murals of note include something from Hush (interviewed) in San Francisco where he currently has a solo show, as well as walls from Labrona (New York), Reka, Ghostpatrol & TwoOne (Melbourne), Papy x Milouz (France), Stinkfish (Columbia), Aner – Maher – Alapinta crew (France), Space Invader (France), and Cranio. Check it out after the jump…

Streets / Update: Escif (Part II)

On a torrid pace since our update only a week ago, Spanish street artist Escif has uploaded many new walls for his fans’ viewing pleasure. Painting with imagery that possesses a simplicity yet curious touch that makes the viewer wonder what the back story is or what the artist is trying to get across, the Valencia-based muralist continues to plaster his homebase with his work, sometimes accompanied with a short phrase or word. More photos after the jump…

Streets: Shepard Fairey (Brooklyn)

After Shepard Fairey hit up the streets of Manhattan last summer, he made a stop in the borough of Brooklyn as well. AM rode along to catch Mr. Obey working spots both big and small while him and his crew went to work on their community beautification campaign. We saw him push through a number of mediums, from his detailed hand-painted wheatpastes to his newer stencils without tire. Check out all the action captured for us by Joe Russo after the jump.

Streets: Cyrcle. – “Winter” (Los Angeles)

Last time we saw the Cyrcle. crew working the streets, they created a large scale mural in Culver City (covered), the same spot occupied by such street art luminaries such as Herakut, David Flores and recently Dabs Myla. But now the trio of young artists have moved closer to the  Downtown area of Los Angeles and have finished another wall project which may not be as big as their previous one but one which strongly continues to uphold the strong thematic qualities they’re known for […]

Streets: Hyuro (Spain)

Another quality mural on the streets has surfaced from Argentinian-born and now Spain-based artist Hyuro. It seems she is maintaining her strong work ethic since her solo show in Zurich at the end of last year with this new piece in Valencia, another wall we just featured last week, and some gallery work for a New York group show. One more look at this wall after the jump…

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 […]
