Streets: Mobstr (London)

These photos, which come courtesy of Hooked Blog include a continuation in his Huh? series as well as other “lessons in advertising.” Discuss Mobstr here.

Art Focus: Eduardo Kobra

Brazilian street muralist Eduardo Kobra is the chosen artist for this week’s Art Focus. The Sao Paulo-born painter’s public art is sometimes politically motivated with messages on pollution, global warming, deforestation, war, and more although much of his work is nostalgic with the purpose to simply beautify the urban environment. He has also worked on projects with major corporations such as Coca Cola, Nestlé, Chevrolet, Ford, Roche, Johnnie Walker, just to name a few. More photos of his work after the jump…

Streets: Conor Harrington (Ireland)

Last we saw of Conor Harrington (interviewed), he was hitting London with an impressive new collection of paintings at Lazarides (covered) of which you can see the some of the photoshoot and photoreferences here by the way. While the successful showing was no doubt satisfying, it did not quench his thirst for outdoor work. On a recent trip back to his home country, he painted this new quickie mural outside of Lurgan, Ireland. Discuss Conor Harrington here.
