Located in the old Danish city of Horsens, the project Public Art saw the silhouette master get up twice at the port and once in the center of the town. Other artists scheduled to attend include Brad Downey, Escif, Pobel, Thomas Dambo, and Ornduvald so we’ll bring you more photos soon… Photo credit: Henrik Haven. Discuss Sam3 here.

Currently on view at The Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris is a exhibition devoted to Danh Vō, an artist who was born in Vietnam and raised in Denmark. His work and the pieces in this show are highly political and explore liberal societies and the power games and rules that underlie them and the fragile nature of the nation-state idea. Centralized by values expressed through the material, economic, or symbolic, Vō’s practice illuminates the complexity of the relationship between peoples in the […]
Hopefully those in London had a chance to check out the great showing from D*Face (interviewed) at Stolenspace before it closed last weekend. Around the same time, the local street artist found time to get up near the gallery (Commercial Street, across the way from Spitalfields Market) with some of his recent pop imagery. Working through the rain, the water turned out to be a good opportunity to get some photos… Photos via the artist. Discuss D*Face here.
German artist and muralist Hendrik ‘ECB’ Beikirch was recently in Split, Croatia, where he took part in a local XStatic festival by painting a new mural on Gripe sports center. Known for the large scale portraits he has painted worldwide (the biggest one being in Busan, South Korea), ECB created another recognizable piece in the center of the city. Since the wall he was painting on is near a place where local senior citizens meet up for card games (“briškula”) and where cold refreshments are served during hot summer […]
Joining an illustrious list of artists (see some of the others here) commissioned by The High Line to design a billboard, Raymond Pettibon chose to use his 2010 drawing No Title (Safe he called…). The scene at home plate features the American artist’s characteristic imagery and text which references characters known well to those in New York like The Notorious B.I.G, Jackie Robinson, and Robert Moses. Stop by next time you are taking a stroll on the famed pedestrian walkway (through July 1) and plan to be back when his […]
We already shared some photos with you of a large mural El Mac worked in while in town for his show at Galerie Wolfsen (covered), It turns out that was only the tip of the iceberg as the LA-based street artist also worked on a triptych piece for his fans in Denmark entitled Purity of Heart, taken from the popular book by Søren Kierkegaard – Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing. These three murals grace three sides of a tower in front of a recently renovated orphanage and […]
As a followup to his showing last year, Twenty-Four in San Francisco, Brett Amory (featured) brings this conceptual vision to the East Coast. Amory filmed 40 locations throughout the five boroughs of New York, each in a one-hour increment at all hours of the day and night. With this as a reference, he produced a total of twelve pieces for the show (six daytime & six nighttime) opening this Saturday night (June 29th) at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Take a look at some studio shots from Shaun […]

Australian artistic couple, Dabs Myla, recently left their LA home/studio to spend couple of weeks traveling and painting around Europe. By creating poppy, very colorful, clean line wall murals, often topped with cute, cartoonish like characters that are their signature elements, the artists left their marks on walls all over the old continent. They visited The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, and collaborated with numerous Europe based graffiti artists such as Newtwo, Vino, Aryz, Boogie, Tiws, Soten, Bates, etc, along the way.

While in UK earlier this month, the Spanish-born Liqen painted a vibrant mural, Mandarina Chicharra, in South London in the Dulwich area. Covering the wall in the courtyard of a local school with his surreal imagery, the children will either be inspired by this hybrid orange and insect creature, or have bad dreams. Take a a look from some other angles and enjoy the details below… Discuss Liqen here.
