Streets: Sam3 (Poland)

When we last updated you on Spanish street artist Sam3, he had just completed a set of three sweet murals in Madrid. We now have images of another great piece (his newest) also featuring his signature shadow technique, this time in Poznań, Poland, painted for the Outer Spaces Festival. Entitled Power to the People, this newest wall is dedicated to the Spanish Revolution and the current May 15th movement. More pics after the jump…

Streets: Happy Valentine’s Day

Those looking for a little love on Valentine’s Day need look no further than the streets. We’ve gathered some images from the last year from C215, Ellis G., Sam3, Escif and Faile that may spark some romance for you. Although some of the pieces may not be exactly what you are looking for.

Streets: Sam3 (Madrid)

After visiting the Fame Festival, we came away with a even greater respect for Sam3’s deceptively simple shadow work, especially after seeing a pretty awesome piece in the gallery show. It looks like the Spanish artist has been busy as he also recently completed a complex set of three murals in Madrid. Take a closer look at the triptych after the jump…

Openings / Streets: FAME Festival 2010

For the last two years, there’s only one place even the most half-hearted of street art fan should be in September and that’s the picturesque town of Grottaglie, in the foot of Italy, and this year is no exception as the town again provides the canvas for curator Angelo Milano’s FAME Festival. As with previous years, Angelo has invited a stylistically and geographically diverse selection of renowned and, at least for now, less recognized artists to decorate the walls of his hometown as they see […]

BLK River Festival ‘ 10: Sam3

After sharing Know Hope’s amazing mural with you from the Vienna street art festival, we now bring you an eclectic collection of Sam3’s contributions. The Spanish silhouette master painted many of his increasingly complex pieces all over town as this year’s BLK River Festival is now in full effect. More images after the jump…

Streets: Sam3 & Liqen Collab in Spain

We had just been introduced to Liqen and one of his collaborations recently and here we already see him creating another joint mural, this time with Spanish compatriot Sam3. This piece in Pontevedra, entitled Sirena II, has one of Liqen’s fanciful monochromatic white works taking a little swim with clusters of Sam3’s signature shadow people. See the whole mural and some detailed shots after the jump…

Streets: Sam3 for Insitu Festival (Spain)

After doing some good work for this year’s Fame Festival, Sam3 moves on to another gathering of street artists, this time in Spain. The new Insitu Festival (see Escif’s piece), the brainchild of Madrid artist San, was held in walled city of Cáceres, Spain – a city known for their stork’s nests of all things. When taken in that context, this beautiful piece from the master of the silhouettes begins to make more sense. A closer look at this mural after the jump, as well […]

Fame Fest ’10: Sam3

  As the September opening of this year’s Fame Festival (our coverage) draws closer, another artist has left his imprint on the city walls. Master of the shadows, Madrid-based Sam3, has made his way over to Grottaglie after working with Blu & Os Gemeos on a project in Lisbon. Look at this beautiful and delicate piece he threw up, “balanced” perfectly on a ladder. Of course, he also painted his iconic black silhouettes as well as worked on the signature medium associated with the festival – ceramics.  Photos […]

Streets: Os Gemeos, Blu, and Sam3 (Lisbon)

It looks like the mural collaboration between Os Gemeos and Blu that we showed you a couple days ago has been completed. Check out the awesome man with the crown of oil company logos sucking the world dry painted by Blu, pretty timely considering what is going on in the Gulf of Mexico. Take a look at more pics after the jump including a bonus mural by Sam3 on a neighboring building.

Video / Releases: Sam3 Valentine’s Prints

Last we saw Sam3, he was hard at work with his signature silhouette technique at the Fame Festival last year. Unexpectedly, the Spanish street artist has come up with some gems for this Valentine’s Day all infused with his special brand of humor. Check out the video above with your significant other, then gift them one of the 50 sets of prints (they come in three) of stills from the animation with the the black layer screenprinted and the red one is hand-drawn by the […]
