This year’s Nuart Festival (see previous years) officially opened this weekend and we have a plethora of new street pieces to share with you. Part II sees us taking a look at the work of Ernest Zacharevic (seen above), Hush, and Strøk. If you remember, the Lithuanian Zacharevic was featured in our Art Focus article last year. It’s nice to see his inventive and whimsical works get more attention and hopefully we’ll see him invited to more street art events. Also, see Part I of our coverage here. Photo credit: Henrik […]

Yesterday, we shared with you photos of Hush’s (interviewed) new mural in Los Angeles painted while he was preparing for his solo show at the Corey Helford Gallery. Today, we follow that up with an early look at the new body of work collectively entitled Unseen which feature portraiture of women rendered with his mix of urban-informed techniques and imagery from Eastern influences. He states that “the women are enciphered with street tags and abstractions, appear as graffiti specters, colorful visages of noir street action. I look to take something […]
