A couple months ago, Eron was able to complete a striking new mural for Phase I of the QUAI 36 project in France centered just outside of Paris in Versailles. Painted in his signature sepia, the piece featuring hands grabbing and releasing doves highlighting the Italian street artist’s skill with the trompe l’oeil technique. Meant to beautify the area where the 1096 social housing units were built in the 1960s, the wall marks Eron’s first public work in France.

Working in Toulouse for the third Rose Beton Festival (see 2016), Mark Jenkins (interviewed) has created a duo of striking installations so far (with two more to come).

The first is what seems to be a girl with her face hidden by her hair hanging from a swing from the Saint Pierre bridge while the second features his signature hooded figure blending in with the statue of Pierre Goudouli at […]

Before his stunt of setting up shop without a permit to make a point about tourism on the streets during the Venice Biennale, Banksy had previously left an unconfirmed stencil on an abandoned house next to the canal. Created at water level, the elusive British artist must have used a boat to steady himself as he painted a young child wearing a life jacket and holding a pink flare up in the air. The piece located on the island of Dorsoduro continues Banksy’s work addressing the migrant crisis. Photo via […]
