Streets: Escif (Valencia)

If you have been following the news, you may have heard about the student protests going on in Spain in response to the cuts to education spending as part of the country’s austerity measures. Not helping things are the heavy-handed response by police in Valencia. Of course, prolific local street muralist Escif had something to say about it – in the form of public art. More examples after the jump…

Happy Valentine’s Day from Escif!

It seems that every year, some of Escif’s work will inevitably be applicable to this holiday. Last year, you may remember a piece entitled Black Kiss from the prolific Spanish artist. Well, for 2012, here is a recent mural he dubbed White Kiss that seems appropriate for the occasion. As a bonus, take a look at a similarly themed piece after the jump…

Streets: World Roundup (Jan 30 – Feb 5)

Headlining our summary of street art this week is this fantastic new mural on the back of some abandoned substation just outside Sheffield from Phlegm of which you can see more detailed pics here. Other notable pieces this week include Know Hope (Israel), Escif (Spain), Zilda (Italy), C215 (Italy), Ludo (France), Shepard Fairey (Texas), Stinkfish (Columbia), Nod Young (China), ROID, and Mesa. See all the photos after the jump…

Streets / Update: Escif (Part II)

On a torrid pace since our update only a week ago, Spanish street artist Escif has uploaded many new walls for his fans’ viewing pleasure. Painting with imagery that possesses a simplicity yet curious touch that makes the viewer wonder what the back story is or what the artist is trying to get across, the Valencia-based muralist continues to plaster his homebase with his work, sometimes accompanied with a short phrase or word. More photos after the jump…

Streets / Update: Escif

Besides the work from Escif that we brought you in the last couple months, he has also updated his blog with some walls that we haven’t had a chance to show you. After enjoying these new pics, also take a look at some footage from the Nuart Festival back in October where the Spanish artist put up quite a bit of street work as well as filled a room with a flag based installation (covered). More murals and video after the jump…

Streets: World Roundup (Jan 9 – Jan 15)

Well, hope everyone survived Friday the 13th. If so, you are will be able to enjoy this week’s roundup of work on the streets. Leading the charge is a series of new murals in an abandoned tower by Sheffield-based artist Phlegm. You can see the rest of them here. Other worthy walls include Slinkachu (London), Escif (Spain), Hyuro (Spain), DAL (South Africa), Monsieur Qui (Paris), REVOK x REYES x STEEL, and BAST. All the photos after the jump…

Streets: Escif & Blu (Buenos Aires)

While his compadre, Italian street artist Blu was painting up Buenos Aires (here, here, and here), it looks like Escif tagged along (you may also remember their back to back efforts together in Spain here) to work on some walls of his own. His contribution to the Argentinian city-scape is an entertaining step-by-step rendition of how to open a locked door with a credit-card. *Correction* this is a collaboration piece with Blu. More photos after the jump from Buenos Aires Street Art.

Streets: Escif (France)

A while back, we gathered some photos of murals that Escif painted while in Niort, France, for the 1st edition of the Festival Le 4eme Mur (The 4th Wall).  Apparently there was one wall that we missed that could arguably be the most intriguing of the bunch from the Spanish street artist – a ghost motif that we have seen before from him, this time drifting slowly away from the body of of an animal as it dies… More photos after the jump…
