Over the course of a few weeks, Tristan Eaton recently finished painting a mural on backlot of Universal Studios featuring five of their iconic monsters. The 50-by-200-foot piece looks to be the LA-based artist’s best work yet and is a good example of the aesthetic his fans have grown to love including his signature patchwork style, attention to detail, and his use of references (he was able to explore Universal’s secret archive and view all of the original posters and ephemera from all of the monster movies). The wall, a massive soundstage […]
Last month in Honolulu, Shepard Fairey (interviewed) created a mural for this year’s edition of POW! WOW! Hawaii. Attending the street art festival for the first time, the American artist decided to address global warming and preserving the environment for future generations with his new piece entitled Golden Future? Working through his birthday, the wall was completed with the help of his mural crew and featured his distinctive palette and imagery. Photo credit: @jonathanfurlong. Discuss Shepard Fairey here.
D*Face (interviewed) recently collaborated on a special project with Joyería Suárez incorporating some of his iconic imagery into a jewellery collection. Whether featuring tools of his trade (spray can & tip), actual sculptural pieces in miniature form (Peace Gun), or his iconic wings, the necklaces and rings created with the prestigious Spanish brand are a perfect extension of the British artist’s aesthetic. Shop the entire collection here. D further explains – “The intricate pieces that make up this collection mirror a variety of my own work […]
Following up on his The Omega Project from 2017 (covered), Rone has taken that idea to the next level by creating an immersive installation in an abandoned Burnham Beeches art deco mansion in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges. Entitled Empire, the new undertaking from the Australian street artist near his homebase of Melbourne sees him paint his signature portraiture on the walls of the 12 room property. Created over the course of 12 months, the project combines art, vision, sound, light, botanical design and scent to take audiences […]

So, it looks like Phlegm has been hard at work at something epic that will open to the public soon in the UK.

André & Futura have joined forces for a unique collaborative show at Danysz Gallery in Paris with their signature pictorial characters. Aptly entitled Chez Nous, the exhibition presents a series of unseen works where they answer each other and merge their energetic painterly gestures. Futura’s otherworldly characters, such as the Pointman, echo Saraiva’s whimsical Mr A. dancing figures, as if their pictorial alter egos were enjoying themselves as much as both artists did in this adventure. The show is on view until the 9th of […]
