With the beginning of August upon us, It’s time to take a look back at some murals that caught our eye last month in this edition of Streets World Roundup, mostly painted in July. First up is this amazing makeover of a 19th century castle in the Loire Valley of central France by Okudafeaturing his colorful and prismatic style (photo edited from ChopemDown Films). Entitled Skull in the Mirror, this project (part of the recent Label Valette Festival) by the Spanish artist is not the first time he has taken on an architectural challenge (see Koas Temple & a Moroccan church) and hopefully won’t be his last.
Other worthy pieces come from: Aaron Li-Hill (Canada), Nychos (Mexico), Spok (Mexico), Alexis Diaz (USA), Nicolas Alfalfa (Germany), Jaz (Ukraine), SFHIR (Portugal), Joram Roukes (Netherlands), Natalia Rak (Netherlands), Invader (France), Bordalo II (Canada), Leon Keer (Denmark), SatOne & Axel Void (Germany), Collin van der Sluijs & Super-A (Netherlands), Vhils (China), Fintan Magee (Italy), Dale Grimshaw (Italy), and Dragon76 (USA).
