With both the mural and the new drawings as well as watercolors on paper produced for the show, the Argentinean artist will interpret the theme of coexistence.

Releases: Huskmitnavn – “Papirarbejde” (Paperworks)” Book

For the last several years, Huskmitnavn (featured) has devoted time to creating and sharing his witty drawings on paper. Recently, he collected some of the personal favorites into a new book titled Papirarbejde (Paperworks). Between working on paintings, murals, illustrating, and the occasional graffiti adventure, the Copenhagen-based artist has spent the last few years creating little paper works almost daily. Often folding, bending, and tearing the surface in order to achieve the desired outcome, the idea is to get the strongest possible effect with the minimal possible intervention. These ink on […]

Streets: Guido van Helten (Iceland)

Australian director & editor Selina Miles and artist Guido van Helten recently revealed a 6-minute film about their journey to Akureyri in Iceland. Back in August of 2015, the two traveled to north coast of Iceland to produce this self initiated collaboration of documenting the process of painting a mural on a local ship. The Canberra-born van Helten is a contemporary artist known for his massive scale, site-specific, portraiture murals. Part visual artist, part anthropologist, his subjects are water colored and sepia toned, imitating long forgotten photographs he […]

Streets: Inti (Marseille)

After a couple of quiet months, Inti recently painted a new large piece in Marseille. La Madre Secular (The Secular Mother) was painted at the crowded Marche aux Puces commercial center in collaboration with the Galerie Saint Laurent as a part of their Street Art show. Staying true to his signature color palette and use of symbols and patterns, the Chilean artist produced another piece that is stepping away from his earlier, cartoon-like characters. Using spray paint to create textures, tones and shades, he painted a piece that […]

Streets: Banksy (Bristol)

As per usual with the elusive British art superstar, a new piece by Banksy was discovered out of nowhere at Bridge Farm Primary School in Bristol this morning. The work was done as a thank you gift to the children that named one of the houses after him. A few weeks ago, the school ran a competition to change house names, and ended up deciding to name them after Bristol legends. After the children choose Brunel, Blackbeard, Cabot and Banksy, the school officials wrote to Banksy’s team to let […]

Streets: Felipe Pantone (Paris)

Following the work from Stelios Faitakis, Olivier Kosta-Théfaine, Philippe Baudelocque, JR and Os Gemeos for the project, the prolific Argentinian-born artist and his team painted an impressive installation in the tunnel of the A86 Duplex, between Rueil-Malmaison in Vélizy, west of Paris. The young artist, known for his graphic based work that plays with dimensions, illusion and use of digital imagery, painted walls, floors and ceiling of this monumental space, took the […]

After recently winning the 2016 National Design Awards in the category of Communication Design, the LA-based artist will be opening his third solo show with the gallery entitled The Quiet Of Not Listening. The new work created for this show is about the belief in images and ideas that result in images. In his process of searching for images to paint, McFetridge seeks something deep, but more importantly, familiar. This results […]
