Streets: St+art India 2016 (Delhi)

For the third consecutive year, St+art Festival in Delhi, India, showed its strength as a collaborative platform for street artists from India and around the world. With the main concept being Art for Everyone, the organizer’s primary objective was to make art accessible for wider audiences while having a positive impact on society. Over the period of two months, the invited artists changed the visual landscape of the city with art interventions in public spaces through murals, installations, performances, workshops, talks and screenings. Aside from working in public, as […]

POW! WOW! Hawaii ’16 / Streets: In Progress

Starting this week, artists have been hard at work painting murals for this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii.

Streets: Ella & Pitr (Puerto Rico)

Continuing their ongoing series of sleeping giants murals, art duo Ella & Pitr recently finished a massive new piece in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Depicting a little baby peacefully sleeping with his mother by its side, the mural was created with the help of locals that volunteered to help the project. Ella & Pitr were invited by Santurce Ley Festival to paint one of their famous giant works in the Caribbean. With this series, the French artists turn rooftops, parking lots, and other large areas into cramped sleeping […]

Streets: Aryz (Bangkok)

Following up on the new murals we shared with you last week from ROA & Nychos, which were painted for the BUKRUK Urban Arts Festival in Thailand, we now have images of Aryz’s contribution. For this latest piece, the Spanish artist chose for his inspiration something that can often be seen on the streets of Bangkok – the bicycle. Take a look at more detailed and progress shots below… Photo credit: A-line Photography & the artist. Discuss Aryz here.

Streets: Nychos (Bangkok)

After a look earlier this week at what ROA painted for the BUKRUK Urban Arts Festival in Thailand, here now is a look at Nychos’ contribution. Taking inspiration from the Bangkok heat, the Austrian street artist painted a rubber ducky on meltdown, of course with the insides revealed with his usual aesthetic. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: A-line Photography & the artist. Discuss Nychos here.

Streets: ROA (Bangkok)

Currently in Bangkok, the BUKRUK Urban Arts Festival has seen a steady stream of street artists arrive to leave their mark on the capital city. One of these is ROA, who is painting across the way from Aryz (more on his mural later), and with his usual practice, choosing to use local creatures as his inspiration. The Belgium-based artist’s decision was easy of course, placing two iconic Thai elephants balanced on top of each other as well as cleverly resting their feet on some architectural elements. Photo […]

Streets: Lonac (Zagreb)

Following in the footsteps of innovative artists before him like Blu & INSA, Lonac has created an animated piece in Zagreb, Croatia. Painted by the locally-based artist in a secret location, the detailed heart has blood pumping through (although in the wrong direction). The reason may be revealed at later time as he promises what he has unveiled is part of a much bigger project. Via StreetArtNews. Discuss Lonac here.

Streets: Escif (Girona)

While many street artists are looking for more exotic destinations to create their works in, Escif recently took an intra-country trip from Valencia to Girona in order to visit neighborhood of Gypsies – Font de la Polvora. In his signature style, the artist used this short trip to pay tribute to the locals that live here and their every day life routines and struggles. Font de la Polvora was built in the 60s as a ghetto separated from the historic center with a small mountain. With a single access through […]

Streets: Banksy (London)

One month since his series of works were revealed in Jungle refugee camp in Calais, Banksy just created a new piece in London. Discovered earlier today on the French embassy, the stenciled image features a girl from Les Misérables, tearing up as CS gas flows over her. This wall, which includes a French flag and the iconic girl from the famous musical, comments on the events from the 5th and 6th of January when French authorities used tear gas, rubber bullets and concussion grenades while attempting to clean up a section of the camp. Even […]
