Streets: Ron English (New York)

Back in 2012, we covered the first mural in Manhattan from Ron English (featured) in over 25 years, featuring his signature Temper Tot figure, a play on The Incredible Hulk. Over the last couple days, the New York-based artist has added a pink brother to the original piece on an adjacent wall for the L.I.S.A Project. Located on 114 Mulberry Street in Little Italy, the matching murals are dedicated to English’s kids Zephyr and Mars, the original Temper Tots. Discuss Ron English here.

Streets: Hot Tea (Los Angeles)

A couple nights ago, under the cover of darkness, Hot Tea and a few friends placed one of his signature installations over the pedestrian bridge that spans the PCH close to Santa Monica Blvd. and Broadway. The culmination of their hard work can be seen in the photos below, a gradient of color featuring 1,180 strands of yarn in 14 different colors that the Minneapolis-based artist dubbed Migration. Head over for a look yourself as it can be taken down by the city at any moment. A […]

Streets: Andreas Englund for Wall\Therapy (Rochester)

Back in 2011, we did Art Focus feature on Andreas Englund, introducing our readers to his imagery of the everyday life of superheroes and the comedy that ensues when dealing with common situations that happen to us mortals. Fast forward five years and we can see that he just completed a mural for the Wall\Therapy event in Rochester, New York, only his second public wall painted ever. Transferring his character to the large scale, the Swedish artist handles the dimensionality of the piece perfectly. Give […]

Along with these works, he also painted a wall mural for his fans to enjoy. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: Birdman Photos. Discuss Nosego […]

Murals: Sepe x Chazme (University of Bielefeld)

Polish artists Sepe and Chazme were recently invited to participate in the 1,2,3 Hoch 2wei project by the University of Bielefeld in Germany. For this initiative, the artists created a mural titled Unreachables inside the university lobby. The large piece is inspired by the current immigrant problem that Europe is dealing with, but also, the problem of Somalian pirates. For this piece, the two artists mixed their highly different styles into a well working image. Sepe painted the characters, with his raw, expressive visual language accenting the pain […]

Setup: EVOL – “Unreal Estate” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Counting down to the last days of the EVOL exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, here is a look back at the Berlin-based artist setting up for the show. Specializing in the reproduction of urban structures in the miniature on the streets, his work is intrinsically suited for the transition into the indoor setting. For Unreal Estate, his cardboard & stenciled constructions are commenting on the current state of the real estate market and comparing it to the post-wall, pre-gentrified East Berlin. He further states – “Society is constantly […]
