Streets: Shepard Fairey (Los Angeles) Part I

As we mentioned earlier today, the MK2 Projects District La Brea group show will be opening tomorrow night. In association with the show, a mural will be created by Shepard Fairey (featured) on the former Continental Graphic’s building. AM stopped to catch the progress of Mr. Obey and his crew as they started work on the 30 foot high mural. Take a look at all the photos taken by our ©Carlos Gonzalez after the jump…

Streets / Preview: Herakut – “Behind the Berlin Wall” @ Wende Museum

This Sunday afternoon, November 13th, the Wende Museum presents Behind the Berlin Wall, a private reception ($50 to benefit the museum, call 310.216.1600 ext. 305 for those interested) featuring the unveiling of murals from Herakut, D*Face’s (interviewed), and RETNA (featured) on a remnant of the Berlin Wall, the longest stretch in the world outside of Germany. Although we have featured other artists before who have painted on fragments of the infamous barrier between what used to East and West Berlin, this project is particularly personal […]

Streets: Phlegm (Switzerland)

While it looks like street muralist Phlegm has had time to work on some drawings for his new book in his home city of Sheffield, he still has found time to leave the UK to work on some walls. This latest piece, put together by Wall Arts Basel, is in Basel, Switzerland and features some of his signature characters involved in some kind of struggle. More detailed pics after the jump…

Streets: Faile Mural on Bowery & Houston (Part II)

AM was recently onsite to bring you Faile breaking ground at the prominent Houston & Bowery mural (before they headed to London for their solo). As you saw in Part I, the basic foundation of the work was a ginormous collage featuring much of the classic imagery created by the collective (both new & old). In an effort to dodge the crazy weather and rain, the two Patrick’s worked morning to night without assistance to wheatpaste the base of their work. After day one, the efforts paid off […]

Streets / Video: Meggs x Endeavor Snowboards (Vancouver)

Meggs, who recently invaded San Francisco along with members of the Young and Free Aussie crew, apparently decided to head up even more north pay a solo visit to Vancouver. While there, a sweet video (filmed and directed by Randy Ross) was put together as he worked on the mural seen above for the Endeavor Snowboards building as well something for the offices. The footage not only spent a lot of time documenting his technique and creative process, it also features a lengthy and insightful […]

Streets: David Flores x Shepard Fairey (Los Angeles)

David Flores and Shepard Fairey (featured) continue to go big as they have now collaborated on a new piece standing in the midst of Downtown Los Angeles. Covering an entire wall, the mural is a combination of Flores’ unique design on one side and on the other, Fairey’s black and white iconography. Over the past few months, the two artists have continued their prolific pace, much of which we have captured including Flores’ rendition of Phil Stern’s James Dean photograph and his reworking of a […]

Streets: Ma’claim (Egypt)

After showing you a piece memorializing the late Khaled Said by Case, we present further evidence that the Ma’claim crew has interest in Egypt and the current political upheaval there. Akut from Herakut along with Rusk, Tasso, and the aforementioned Case were recently in the country hitting up the streets of Cairo and Alexandria with murals. They were in also in town for the release of the Arabic Graffiti book from From Here To Fame Publishing. More photos via the publisher taken by Joel Sames […]

Videos: Above – “GIVE A WALL STREET BANKER…”

As you saw briefly in our recent update on the street festivities down in Miami, the Bay area-based ABOVE (interviewed) worked on a piece painted with his signature letters spelling out “GIVE A WALL ST. BANKER ENOUGH ROPE AND HE WILL HANG HIMSELF.” The mural, which also featured a man in a suit hanged in effigy along with the prolific street artist’s well known arrows, drew much attention and was featured on the local news. Enjoy the video (seen above) detailing the creative process that […]

Streets: Bumblebee – “Passed Out” and “Blanket No. 6″ (Los Angeles)

Fresh off a summer that saw him exhibiting in the Portsmouth Museum of Art and causing a ruckus in the streets of New Hampshire, Bumblebee goes all out in a return to his hometown with these two recent pieces. The first is Passed Out, a mural painted by the artist at the shop’s request on the side of Sherman McNulty Frame Gallery in Hollywood. The 30 ft. x 9 ft. piece represents the first time Bumblebee has made a child this large in size. The […]
