Streets: Vhils (Berlin)

It looks like Vhils (filmed) has recently stopped by Berlin and left one of his signature wall etchings behind. Perhaps this was created while he was in town for the release of the Walls & Frames book launch party. We especially like the intriguing inclusion of the Eye of Providence which appears on the United States one-dollar bill as Angela Merkel’s 3rd eye. Discuss Vhils here.

Streets: Dabs Myla (Los Angeles) Part II

Yesterday, we brought you a look at the progress from Dabs Myla’s latest mural in Los Angeles.

Street: Dabs Myla (Los Angeles) Part I

The dynamic duo known as Dabs Myla have been hitting the mural scene as of late. Not too long ago, we saw them put up some great work during Art Basel Week Miami. Now, they are back in Los Angeles and creating what looks to be another impressive mural. Set up through Warren Brand and the Branded Arts project, this mural project has been quietly moving along during this entire week in the Culver City Arts complex where previous works from Herakut (covered), David Flores (covered), Cyrcle.

Roids

Streets: REVOK x ROID (London)

Two gifted graffiti artists and MSK brothers, REVOK and ROID recently collaborated on this piece in East London. If you recall, they recently opened a show together in Los Angeles (covered), as well as joined forces (along with RIME) for another piece in Detroit. As before, you can see that the raw forms of REVOK and the geometric lines of ROID always seem to combine well. Closer looks after the jump…

Streets: Blu (Buenos Aires) Part II

After bringing you photos a new political and provocative mural form Blu about a week ago, here is another set of pics of another mural painted by the Italian street savant in Buenos Aires. This time around, the piece on the side of a building depicts an an image of the globe slowing disintegrating like a jigsaw puzzle with the pieces being interconnecting humans. More photos after the jump via Buenos Aires Street Art…
TILT 08

Studio Visit / Streets: Tilt

AM was fortunate to visit French graffiti artist TILT in his studio in Toulouse as he prepared for multiple shows in London at POW, Singapore and Manila, and to follow him across the streets. When not painting graffiti on naked “bubble girls” across the world, the self declared “graffiti fetichist” leverages his fun and colourful bubble letters to represent iconic portraits, shoes and flags.

Streets: Titi Freak (Japan)

The Brazil-based Titi Freak (Hamilton Yokota) recently made a trip to the Ishinomaki, Miyagi in Japan for a project involving the painting of some temporary dwellings with people in the community. Made possible by The Japan Foundation and the Embassy of Brazil in Japan, the endeavor was meant to have an empowering effect for the residents and featured workshops for inhabitants, solo works by the graffiti artist, as well as collaboration murals. More photos after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: Liqen

While strolling through the Wynwood District during Art Basel Week Miami, we came across a truly amazing mural by Liqen. The huge piece featured the Mexico-based artist’s illustrative style which depicted the metaphor of workers stuck in cubicles built like a prison with an added surreal insectatoid twist. We spent some time there gazing at all the details which we think you will appreciate as well. More photos after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: Andrew Schoultz (Part II)

After reporting on some in-progress photos of an two-sided epic mural by Andrew Schoultz for Primary Flight in Miami, we head back to get some completed shots. The walls were somewhat hidden from view, across from the ROA mural if you know where that is, but when seen in person, one can begin to imagine why it took 2 weeks to finish what with details like bricks each individually painted and custom curb stops. The amazing thing was this project was only one of many […]
