Streets: Ericailcane (Belgium)

Earlier this month, Ericailcane painted a set of three murals in Ghent, Belgium utilizing his distinctive illustrative style to coincide with the second edition of EI. The renowned Italian street artist painted the pieces on the outer walls of the artists’ workspace ‘het vogelnest vzw’ (Nieuwevaart 118D – 9000 GHENT – Belgium) where an event will be held on May 19th with lectures and a screening of Exit Through the Gift Shop.

Streets: Blu & Ericailcane (Palestra)

Although we didn’t see any of his work in the Art in the Streets exhibition at the MOCA last week (probably related to the controversial buffing of his mural), most people still consider Blu one of the most important street artists at the moment. In fact, both him and fellow Italian artist Ericailcane (who recently collaborated on a mural in Bologna) are some of our favorites out there and they reaffirm our love for their work with this recent mural they are working on in […]

Streets: Blu & Ericailcane (Bologna)

No stranger to collaborations (see Nuart), not to mention both being automatic invites to any serious street art event, Blu and Ericailcane have teamed up for another piece – this time in Bologna. We should see more from these two Italian artists as the weather heats up and outdoor painting season starts again. Discuss Blu here. Discuss Ericailcane here.

Openings: Ericailcane – “We Were Living in the Woods” @ Fifty24SF

Better known for large scale outdoor murals typically depicting playful and sometimes sinister looking animals, Italy-based artist Ericailcane brought his artwork indoors with the opening of his show “We Were Living In the Woods” at Fifty24SF. The show featured a wide arrange of ink drawings (some watercolored), etchings, screenprints (some handpainted), a few copies of his book “Il Numbero Delle Bestie”, and a few sculptures to grace the window display. As shown in our preview of the show (here), he painted a new piece for […]

Setup: Erica Il Cane – “We Were Living In The Woods” @ Fifty24SF

It looks like Erica Il Cane has started to transform the Fifty24SF space into a personal playground for his whimsical characters with paintings as well as murals inside and outside of the gallery. Rhinomilk (AM:SF) visited the Italian street artist and took some pics of the setup for you to peruse ahead of the opening of his show “We Were Living In The Woods” (previewed) tomorrow night. More photos after the jump…

Preview: Erica Il Cane – “We Were Living In The Woods” @ Fifty24SF

After seeing Erica Il Cane’s work in person at this year’s Fame Festival, we came away with a new found respect for his whimsical outdoor murals and illustrative gallery work. Now, fans of one of Italy’s most famous street artists will get to see his work stateside as he will be opening his show “We Were Living in the Woods” this Thursday night at Fifty24SF. Make sure you stop by if you are in San Francisco, you will fall in love with his works like […]

Streets: Erica Il Cane & Lucy McLauchlan in Lisbon

After another wildly successful Fame Festival this year under his belt, Angelo Milano headed down to Lisbon for Part II of the CRONO project (see Part I with Os Gemeos, Blu, and Sam3). This time, Erica Il Cane & Lucy McLauchlan were on hand to work on a collaboration piece (you can see the Sam3 piece peeking out on the left).

Openings / Streets: FAME Festival 2010

For the last two years, there’s only one place even the most half-hearted of street art fan should be in September and that’s the picturesque town of Grottaglie, in the foot of Italy, and this year is no exception as the town again provides the canvas for curator Angelo Milano’s FAME Festival. As with previous years, Angelo has invited a stylistically and geographically diverse selection of renowned and, at least for now, less recognized artists to decorate the walls of his hometown as they see […]

Fame Fest ’10: Erica Il Cane

With the opening of the Fame Festival set for this Saturday night, Erica Il Cane squeezed in two last murals in Grottaglie. The Bologna-based artist’s murals are straight from fairy tales with the feel of old-school illustrations found in antique books, but in wonderful large scale. Take a look at another piece – “the frog prince” – after the jump as well as a video of his unusual technique of handpainted his screenprints.

Nuart ’10: Vhils & More

It’s time for another update from Stavenger, site of the Nuart Festival. Looks like Vhils is in town now chiseling away at another masterpiece. We had only recently enjoyed his work at the fantastic Eurotrash show and the Viva La Revolucion exhibit so if you have not seen the textures of his work in person, you are missing out. Take a look at the completed M-City piece and a faraway look at the Ericailcane piece after the jump…
