As we mentioned last month, Shepard Fairey (featured) will be opening a show at the StolenSpace Gallery in London entitled Sound and Vision. Looks like he made an early trek across the pond to work on some large-scale public murals of his distinctive imagery including this new piece on Ebor Street in East London. Check some progress pics below… Photo credit: Hooked Blog. Discuss Shepard Fairey here.

We got to meet up with Munich based Sat One whilst he was in London recently for the Futurism 2.0 exhibition, and witnessed this gem of a wall collaboration with Roid. Now back in Munich, the hard-working street muralist has whipped up this privately commissioned little jammy entitled Inner Path. Discuss SatOne here.
Over the years we have followed FAILE to China, Spain, the UK and way too many remote locations to list, but never did we expect to be crossing the seas to a place where the horse runs wild, Buddhism is the law of the land and the beef is no doubt to die for. That’s right ladies and gentleman, FAILE is headed to Ulan Bator, Mongolia, working in collaboration with Mongolian Sculptor, Bat Munkh and Arrested Motion is going to be bringing you all the […]

After pointing out a great collaboration recently from REVOK and RIME in Detroit, we now bring your attention to another joint mural – this time from Roid and SatOne in London where the Munich-based artist was in town participating in the Futurism 2.0 show (also see the Joker, Shok-1 and Remi Rough wall). With EndoftheLine for providing the wallspace, SatOne brought his distinctive style and combined it nicely with local star Roid’s mastery of geometric forms… Via Graffuturism. Discuss SatOne here.
We recently gave you a first look at Barry McGee mural that was in progress at Brooklyn’s Mark Morris Dance Group. Now, the mural which incorporates the Bay Area legend’s classic portrait heads and geometric designs has been completed. With the assistance from Colossal Media, the eight story high mural took about a week to finish. Seen from the local streets, this well using Twist’s signature cluster panel paintings was a sight to behold. Check out the details below…. Discuss Barry McGee here.
AM has always seen Mark Warren Jacques (interviewed) as much as a storyteller as an artist since we became immersed in his work a number of years ago. His latest solo exhibition opens this Thursday at Portland’s Breeze Block Gallery and is entitled Each Story In This Story Has A Story. Heartfelt sentiments interlaced with abstracted narrative, explosive colours and the very tightest of line-work are just some of the elements that are to be found within his work. We got to spend some time with Mark and […]
On a recent visit to the Bay Area, AM got to visit the Oakland studio of artist Brett Amory just as he was in full scale preparations for his upcoming exhibition Twenty-Four In San Francisco. A continuation of Brett’s widely known Waiting series, Twenty-Four focuses its attentions on 24 locations as the subject of 24 new paintings – with 24 hours of filming taken at the locations to capture a dynamic revealed by human interactions with residents in the city. Above, Brett shows us some of the […]
Featuring two graf legends who have mastered a aesthetic of their own, this recent collaboration from REVOK and RIME really hit the spot. Entitled A MAN’s THREAT & A WOMAN’s PET, the mural combined many elements from the two MSK brothers’ work including the figurative stylings of Jersey Joe and the strength of lettering from REVOK. Check out all the sick details of this complex and layered piece below… Photo via The Seventh Letter & REVOK. Discuss REVOK here. Discuss RIME here.
