Streets: World Roundup Oct 17 – 23

It’s time for another roundup of the new walls this week here on AM. Although not exactly immediately recent, this mural from Mesa in particular caught our eye. Other murals covered after the jump include C215 (Paris), Escif (France), Sam3 (Germany), Dabs Myla x Remi/Rough (London), Fintan Magee (Melbourne), Teo Doro (Valparaíso), Dimitris Taxis (Spain), and Isaac Cordal (Brussels).

Streets: Escif for Festival “Le 4eme Mur” (France)

After working his magic in Norway with several murals for the Nuart Festival, it looks like the next destination for Spanish street dynamo Escif was France. He took some time to immerse himself in the city of Niort (“history, economical, old factory, architectures, silence of street without cars and ghost in a castel”) before working on some walls for the Festival “Le 4eme Mur” (The 4th Wall). More photos after the jump…

Streets: Escif & Ericailcane (Valencia)

Serial collaborator Ericailcane has instead opted to trade his Italian neighbor Blu for Spanish street art crusader Escif. Ironically, Blu and Escif collaborated together in Valencia on an impressive tandem mural back in July for Arquitecturas Colectivas. Quite clearly, the three artists share a tight bond and mutual respect for one another. With Escif’s recent efforts at the FAME and Nuart festivals, it’s hard to deny he more than belongs in the same sentence as the other two outdoor icons. This piece from several months […]

Nuart Festival ’11: Escif

Held in Stavenger, Norway once a year, the Nuart Festival has kicked things off this past week as many of the featured artists have arrived. Our first look at the action is with Spanish artist Escif who is part of the lineup for 2011 that also includes Dan Witz, David Choe, Vhils, Herbert Baglione, Lucy McLauchlan, Dolk, Herakut, Tellas, Hyuro, Phlegm, and DVS 1.  You may remember that Escif was just in town for the ______ capitalism? event (covered), but this time spent more time outdoors and in working […]

Fame Festival ’11: Escif

Escif recently made the stop in Grottaglie for some last minute additions as the Fame Festival opening will roll around in the next couple weeks (see other artists who have already have done their part here). In addition to this giant tiger, the Spanish street artist also worked on some walls with his signature characters as well as a text-based piece. More after the jump…

Streets: “______ capitalism?” (Norway)

Artists have been hard at work the past week getting up in Norway for the ______ capitalism? event put on by the NHH Norwegian School of Economics in close collaboration with the Nuart Festival. If you remember back in July, Eine was the first to paint a piece for the project, but others like M-City, Escif, Dolk, and Hyuro have joined in the fun to challenge the leading business school’s ideological foundations directly on their walls. The unlikely pairing of the street artists with the school […]

Streets: Living Walls Atlanta – The City Speaks

International art festivals in Europe featuring street art and graffiti have been on the rise recently, from the the established set to get underway soon (NuArt – Norway & FAME – Italy) to the newer ones (Galore – Copenhagen, T&J Artwalk – Oslo, See No Evil – Bristol, Bloop Festival – Ibiza, Walk & Talk Festival – Azores, Draw The Line Festival – Campobasso). Meanwhile stateside, Atlanta decided not to let the other side of the Atlantic have all the fun as Living Walls kicked off their annual conference with a […]

Streets: Walk & Talk Festival (Azores) Part II

Besides the amazing boat mural that Phlegm painted for the Walk & Talk Festival in Azores, Portugal, there were also some other familiar names who got up some quality work. Vhils did his home country proud with some chiseled local portraiture, Interesni Kazki continued to impress (see Ibiza) with another large surreal mural, and Escif threw up a cryptic wall with a dinosaur and block lettering. These fore-mentioned artists along with 26 others (20 of them from Portugal) certainly went a long way in fulfilling the vision of tranforming the […]
