Previews: “Thierry Noir – A Retrospective” @ Howard Griffin gallery, London

After recently hosting a debut solo by British street artist Phlegm (covered), Howard Griffin Gallery in London is about to present another debut exhibition by another street art legend. On April 4th, a retrospective will open  from French artist Thierry Noir, one of the first artist that started painted Berlin Wall back in the 1984 with an idea “to transform it, to make it ridiculous, and ultimately to help destroy it.” Thierry moved to Berlin in the early 80s and was influenced by the strong underground […]

Streets: Faith47 (Cape Town)

Faith47 just shared this beautiful piece in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. Titled You Hold No Blame For My Proud Heart, the piece is shows two swans facing each other forming a heard shaped image. In her signature manner, the South African artist used watered out paint that dripped all over the wall as well as got soaked in, making the mural become one with the surface and the building it’s painted on. The transparency of the image and the fact that the wall wasn’t cleaned or buffed before […]

Videos: Judith Supine Scales the Queensboro Bridge

We just received this exclusive video from Judith Supine‘s camp, showing some behind the scene action that took place the other night in NYC. As street art lovers already know, Supine has been known to put extra effort to place his public work in some of the most unusual places reachable. So, following his stunt from 2007, when he installed one of his pieces on Manhattan Bridge, the other night he climbed the Queensboro bridge in order to display one of his collages from the Golden Child […]

Showing: Ernest Zacharevic – “Rock, Paper, Scissors!” @ Montana Gallery

Ernest Zacharevic recently took park in an art residency in Barcelona (previewed) during which he painted some public works, as well as created new works and installations for his Rock, Paper, Scissors! solo show at Montana Gallery, his first solo show on the old continent. Working on found objects and thoughtfully mixing his painting skills with urban, graffiti elements done with spray can, the Lithuanian artist’s pieces are bursting with playfulness and positive energy. The imagery mostly consists of children playing, but that theme can range from innocent […]

Openings: KAWS – “Final Days” @ CAC Malaga

KAWS aka Brian Donnelly just opened his big European museum exhibition, curated by Fernando Francés, at CAC Malaga. Titled Final Days, this is his first museum solo outside USA, and similar to his recent US shows and events at the end of last year (New York, KC, PAFA), this showing will coordinate with his solo that opened in Madrid back in Feb (covered).

Showing: Stohead – “Now” @ Galerie Lefeuvre

German artist Stohead is currently having a solo show at Galerie Lefeuvre in Paris, showing for the second time in their space. Titled Now, the show features 14 colorful, large size canvases in which he mixes his signature tagging and calligraphy elements with abstract smoke elements. Slightly different than some of his previous paintings that are mostly focused on letters, this body of work feels like a step forward for the Berlin-based artist. While we’ve seen him use these other dynamic elements in some of […]

Streets: 2501 (Tuscany)

Continuing his ongoing project entitled Nomadic Experiment, 2501 recently visited the Tuscany region in Italy, where he created some new, interesting public pieces. The idea of this project is to combine painting, sculpture, video and other forms, in order to push boundaries of creative activity. Aside from creating public works, this endeavor will include a couple of gallery shows worldwide that will feature elements of these works as well as new pieces and installations. For this stage of the project, the prolific Italian artist painted an old […]

By reusing images he finds in trashed magazines, he not only creates […]

Streets: Cyrcle. (London)

During their recent visit to London for the opening of their solo show Overthrone! Pooring Reign (covered), Cyrcle also created a huge mural in Shoreditch. Following the theme and the visual identity of the exhibition, this massive piece features upside down Greek & Roman statues along with an upside down crow, infinity symbol and word REIGN. The whole concept of the mural is focused on taking power back, and overthrowing the rulers. With the Greek & Roman elements symbolizing some of the biggest and strongest empires that […]
