Recently in Columbia, D*Face (interviewed) participated in the first Dictador Art Masters event along a international roster of street artists. Painting at an old abandoned rum distillery in the rainforest, the British artist had free rein to explore the pipes, tanks, nooks and crannies to search for some interesting “canvas” ideas. Take a look at what some photos below of what he came up with… Photo credit: Dictador Art Masters, Spraying Bricks, and the artist. Discuss D*Face here

Recently, Augustine Kofie (featured) teamed up with AiseBorn to paint an outstanding new mural at the former Rendon Hotel in Los Angeles. The harmonious joint effort on the 7th Street facade between the two locally-based artists was aided by the common elements that can be seen in their work like geometrical patterns, architectural influences, and a background in graffiti. This collaborative wall was commissioned as part of the Art at the Rendon // Hidden Rooms event opening next weekend, the first of a series of ongoing cultural programs hosted […]
It looks like while he was in town for the BEYOND THE STREETS exhibition (covered), Invader added to his prolific body of work on the streets of Los Angeles that stretches back over a decade. For what he calls the 9th wave of invasion of the LA, the French artist got up 29 new mosaics throughout the city including a sweet piece featuring The Dude placed perfectly outside a building that has a bowling alley. Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Invader here.
Spending a week together in Berlin, Telmo Miel and James Bullough worked on a stunning new piece (located Bernburger Straße 35) that blends the work of the street artists together perfectly. Painting the large wall for the Berlin Mural Fest with the “Unity” concept proposed by Urban Nation in mind, the Dutch duo mixed their patchy & segmented imagery with the locally-based Bullough’s glitchy portraiture in a way the matches their styles up amazingly well. Take a look are more photos below… Discuss Telmo Miel here. Discuss James Bullough here.
Recently in the Netherlands, Leon Keer created five street pieces in memory of M.C. Escher in the city of his birth – Leeuwarden. Painted in the anormorphic style that he has become known for, the Dutch artist thrilled the crowds who gathered to watch his work and provided perfect photo ops for the art lovers. Keer’s chosen source of inspiration was a perfect fit for his mind-bending 3D works with Escher also known for impossible objects and plays on perspective. These works were produced with […]
Following up our previous coverage of the RAD Napa project (curated by Thinkspace and sponsored by The Napa Valley Wine Train), we now have photos from something Mars-1 (featured) painted recently. Creating a mural from his Infinite Tapestry series next to the railroad tracks, the Bay Area-based artist wove multiple globes of his bubbles together on the two part wall. The organic forms really pop against the stark black background, especially when viewed from the train. Photo & video credit: Birdman Photos. Discuss Mars-1 here.
While in town for his showing (more on this later) at Weinstein Gallery, legendary street artist Blek Le Rat spent some time working some of his stencil magic in San Francisco. Hitting several locations including the Hastings College of Law, the French artist was able make his mark on the area including conjuring up appearances of his famous rat. Take a look at some photos documenting his time on the streets below… Photo credit: Birdman Photos. Discuss Blek Le Rat here.
While in town for their current solo show at Underdogs Gallery (more on this later), PichiAvo completed a stunning new mural near the Santa Apolónia railway station utilizing their signature palette. Soaring high into the urban landscape, the multi-story mural from the Spanish duo features their signature remix of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures with their love for graffiti. With deft spraycan control, the two carefully layered urban scrawl with a classic marble bust, leading to a beautifully textured and complex wall painting. Photo credit: José […]
Continuing his longstanding work within skate culture, Andrew Schoultz recently completed a project in Las Vegas earlier this month at the skatepark at the Clark County Winchester Cultural Center.

In related news, Schoultz will return to the area on June 2nd when his show at UNLV’s Marjorie Barrick Museum opens.
