Streets: Herakut (Los Angeles)

During the past week, the duo known as Herakut were in Los Angeles as part of Wende Museum’s Behind The Wall project (covered). However, the artist collective also took time to do a large scale mural which featured their signature style and character design. The wall, which took two days to complete, sits not too far from the city’s Chinatown area and it continues to show the technique that the artists have perfected during their time together. Of note,Herakut will also be releasing a book […]
King Robbo, 1985 by Citrus Topnote, Jr.

Streets: Banksy – Robbo Tribute

Banksy is back to the London streets, with a tribute to King Robbo, at the exact same spot that started the controversy (covered here) two years ago. In a sign of making peace, Mr. B drew the outline like King Robbo did back in 1985 in the original and added a “spray can” candle, as a well wisher to Robbo, currently in induced coma. A closer look after the jump as well as a look at the Robbo piece…

Streets: Slinkachu – “Scars” (London)

As Veterans Day in the US and Armistice Day in the UK draw to a close, here is a reminder of the cost these brave soldiers pay from street miniaturist Slinkachu. The newest street intervention, located in London, is entitled Scars and based on a quote from Douglas MacArthur – “the soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” A close up (seen after the jump) will reveal the symbol of the […]

Streets: RETNA (Los Angeles)

The AM crew did a night time driveby past the new RETNA (featured) wall in Beverly Hills recently.  The mural on the side of Gallery Brown isn’t the MSK AWR street calligrapher’s first time putting in work in the area if you remember, as he also put his brush on the walls of the Chanel flagship store in the city recently. Look for more RETNA news as Art Basel Week Miami draws near, but for now, check out more photos through the lens of ©Carlos […]

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 […]
