We recently got an update from solidARTy.org that they are started another round of charity art auctions on their website. The project launched back in November by auctioning artworks donated by artists, galleries and studios, with 100% of the proceeds going to AreYouSyrious.org organization. So far they have raised over €20,000 for the cause and are now continuing their efforts by offering more original and rare, editioned work by world renowned street, urban and contemporary artists. Along with some of the pieces that didn’t sell previously, the […]

Phlegm has made good use of his visit to New Zealand to get up some of his signature imagery. Along with a piece in Dunedin, he also painted a larger piece in Wellington on the side of a building where sound heads were made for movie projectors. He incorporated one of his characters with one of these devices as one of the elements that formed a large head. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: StreetKiwi (via StreetArtNews).

Recently in Dunedin, New Zealand, the ever busy Phlegm finished a new mural on the side of a structure featuring some of his signature characters riding a Giant Moa. The striking image features the long extinct flightless bird endemic to the area that could grow to 12 feet tall and weighed about 500 lbs. Of course, when magnified by the Sheffield-based artist, it looks even more impressive. Take a look at more detailed photos below… Photo credit: StreetKiwi (via StreetArtNews). Discuss Phlegm here.
Another mural that caught our attention during Basel Week Miami was a clever new creation from Phlegm. Curated by Fresco Art and painted on the side of the Bon Vivant building, the new piece takes cues from the railroad track next to the site and features the Sheffield-based artist’s recognizable characters taking a ride on a train. Take a look at the amazing details of the locomotive, the tunnels & towers it traverses, and the creatures in the photos below… Discuss Basel Week Miami here. Discuss Phlegm here. […]
After flying all around the globe painting some of the biggest and most intricate murals around, Phlegm recently announced this unique project planned through the month of August. The Forest will be taking place around Epping forest, a twelve mile stretch of ancient English woods stretching from Wanstead flats up to Epping and will last from 1st until 31st of August. During this time the artist will be creating small installations or artwork using fly tipped wood and trash collected over the past few months. As […]
Invited in by Urban Nation for their continuing series of public arts projects, British artist Phlegm recently painted this challenging mural on a corner building in Berlin. As part of the One Wall Project, the Sheffield-based artist expertly navigated the architectural details on these walls in the Schöneberg area and livened up the cityscape with his signature characters. Take a look at more of the beautiful details below… Discuss Phlegm here.
Working on a massive new project in Western Australia, Phlegm has painted over four 36 meter high grain silos near the Wheatbelt town of Northam for PUBLIC 2015, arranged by FORM. Working 10 hours a day for two weeks straight, the prolific British street artist left his mark with a series of impossible flying machines (inspired by the area’s iconic hot air balloons) and his signature characters rendered beautifully in his usual manner. Four of the other CBH Group silos at their Avon site to the right were […]
Phlegm recently spent several days on a cherry picker in East London, painting a large wall near Old Street with generous help from Red Market and AltLondon. The finished piece is features one of his gigantic characters, cramped inside a typical English house, and includes a cool little nod to Banksy since it’s created on the same wall where the TV Out of the Window piece was painted. While this mural can be seen as a critique on the crowds and over population of the British capital, the artist stated – “It’s just […]
During the winter months, we typically see a slowdown of street activity due to the colder weather. After a brief hiatus, our Streets: World Roundup feature returns with a summary of the intervening months. Leading things off is this Invader (who has a new website) piece that is seen in a new light in the wake of the tragic events that went down recently in the French artist’s home base (photo by tofz4u). Other notable walls come from ROA – Germany (source), Herakut – USA, […]
The hardworking people from the PangeaSeed project are continuing their praiseworthy efforts with another successful edition of their Sea Walls: Murals for Ocean events. After an event in Mexico back in August (covered), they recently finished out their San Diego edition. For this leg of the project, they’ve collaborated with eight international artists and painted murals in the East Village district of San Diego, California. As always, the idea behind this project is “to help bring the beauty and the plight of the world’s oceans into streets around the globe via […]
