One half of the art duo known as Etam Cru, Sainer, recently continued his collaboration with Underdogs collective in Portugal. After releasing an exclusive limited edition lithograph with them last year (covered), the Polish artist just visited Lisbon again and painted an impressive new mural. Covering the entire facade of a 10 story building, Crossroads is a clean example of Etam Cru’s recognizable work.

With some recent articles, we have introduced to you several public murals arranged by the Underdogs platform in Lisbon as well as some gallery shows. We now have another street piece to share with you in the same vein – a collaboration between Vhils and Pixel Pancho. The joint wall saw the locally-based Vhils mix his chiseled technique with the Italian Pixel Pancho’s robotic imagery leading an interesting interaction of disparate styles.

It’s time for another roundup of street art around the world that we didn’t have a chance to cover in-depth. First up is a mural from Case in Erfurt, Germany for the OQ Paint project.

If you are interested in more in-progress photos, head over here. Other notable work comes from: Rone – […]

A group of renegade art bandits calling themselves the Underdogs are proving themselves to be quite a powerhouse with one large scale art project after another. This latest gathering of the minds produced a group show titled “TRAINS & GENERATIONS” at the Underdogs Gallery in Lisbon featuring the imagery of three iconic graffiti photographers over the coarse of more than three decades – from Martha Cooper’s pioneering photos depicting the underbelly of New York City graffiti of the 70’s and 80’s to the works of Alex Fakso and Smart […]
Shortly after finishing new series of hand painted mono silkscreens (covered), the NYC-based How & Nosm flew to Portugal to take part in the ongoing Underdogs Project. As announced earlier this year, Raoul and Davide Perre are on a list of participants which also includes Interesni Kazki (covered), Cyrcle (covered), Maismenos, Alex Fakso, Martha Cooper, Vhils & Pixel Pancho. As the first part of their involvement in the project, the twin brothers created a massive mural on a big building in the Alcântara neighborhood of Lisbon. By using their […]
Recently, the L.A. based art collective Cyrcle. traveled to Lisbon, Portugal for a show titled Capture the Flag! : Conquer the Divide! Putting on display a new collection of works that depart in both style and theme from their previous solo last year (covered), the group took their talents overseas to the Underdogs Gallery. This new exhibition studies the struggle of nations told through an American perspective in which both the mythology and the duality between the Cowboy and the Indian play an important role in deciphering […]
