Streets: Phlegm for the 2012 Bloop Festival (Ibiza)

After a series of murals in New York, Phlegm continues his globe-trotting ways and head over to Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza for the Bloop Festival (see last year). The new piece on the side of a building has an Escher-esque feel to it, but re-imagined with UK-based street painter’s characters and style. Also scheduled to make an appearance at the event are Interesni Kazki, Boris Hoppek, Btoy, Olek, Malarky, and more. Discuss Phlegm here.

Streets: Blu (Italy)

Italian street savant Blu, who recently reappeared in Spain for the Desordes Creativas Festival where he made vegetarians everywhere feel just as guilty as meat-lovers, has now returned to his native country for a mural. The new work in Sardinia shows a lab experiment being conducted by a pair of large green hands, a nod to the feeling in the region that Quirra Syndrome with an unusually high cancer rate is due to the military testing in the area. Discuss Blu here.
