Recently in the La Punta area just outside of Valencia, Spain, a group of street artists got together to help the local population protest the actions of the port authority and the local government have taken since 2001. Because of their focus on urban development, locales were forced to move into social housing only 100’s of meters from their old homes and gardens.

Last month in Zaragoza, Spain, Aryz and his friend SAN (Daniel Muñoz) painted the chapel of an old psychiatric hospital for Festival Asalto. Covering the exterior of the building with their distinctive imagery, the two spanish artists skillfully worked around all the architectural details while creating an intriguing juxtaposition between the new and old world. Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Arzy here.
It’s been a while since we had a streets round up here on AM so we have some catching up to do. Leading off things for recent street activity around the world is this new mural (photo via SAN) from Conor Harrington (interviewed) in Rochester, New York. The wall was painted for the ongoing WALL\THERAPY festival and features the UK-based painters signature mix of colonialism, abstraction, and photorealism. Other notable murals include work from: Proembrion – Poland (source), Ericailcane x Bastardilla – Italy (source), Herbert Baglione x SAN […]
Spanish artists, San and Escif finally made their stop at Fifty24SF on Thursday for the opening of their show See you in Croatan.

Escif and San have hit the ground running as they have arrived in California to prepare for their upcoming joint show at Fifty24SF (first mentioned here). The two Spanish street artists first made a stop in Socal with this mural at the popular De La Barracuda wall before heading north to no doubt grace San Francisco with more walls before their show opens on June 30th.

Take a look at this sweet new street piece from Escif entitled “Black Kiss.” We were originally going to save this for Valentine’s but we also wanted to take the chance to tell our SF readers about his upcoming show at Fifty24SF in June. The Spanish artist will be showing alongside compatriot SAN with hopefully some collaborative pieces in the works. We would love to see some murals, installations, and larger works that have not been seen much in previous shows like the one Escif […]
StolenSpace Gallery in London is hosting their annual summer group show tonight. As usual, the roster features some stalwarts from their stable of artists as well as mixing in some new talent.

If this incredible painting is any indication, we are in for a treat when her next solo opens in October at the Corey Helford Gallery. More selected preview images from the group show which also includes […]
