Public: Gaia

With PUBLIC, presented by the non-profit art organization FORM, finally completed after a kick-ass 9 days of painting here’s another awesome completed wall in the streets of Perth, Australia this time from Gaia. As with most of his work he considers the history and culture of neighborhoods which inspires the imagery he incorporates with this piece being no different. Pieced together he shows us “moments of Perths development from early planning efforts to contemporary architecture [with homage to] Gordon Stephenson [pictured at] the top,” the architect responsible for planning much of Perth’s traffic network.

Madsteez x The Hundreds

Why hello there acid flashbacks! This new piece painted out in Los Angeles, CA on the old De La Barracuda wall by Madsteez for The Hundreds is super sick. As with all of his work this wall is full of crazy color gradients and layers juxtaposing bold and abstract graphics with realistic imagery. With warmer weather upon us I can’t wait to see what’s in store with him.

Street Anatomy: Part 2

While we last saw his dissected wolf the other week, this week we’ve got another sweet mural from Nychos as he prepares for his “Street Anatomy” show opening Friday at Fifty24SF in San Francisco, CA. Painted in conjunction with Fifty24SF, Upper Playground, and Montana Cans for Wallspace this killer “eat your heart out” piece makes for the perfect tucked away rooftop gem, featuring his signature gory skeletal mass. Check out the progress shots of this wall over at Rabbit Eye Movement’s page here.

Renaissance

Painted as a part of the “French Spring” festival at Andrew’s descent in Kiev, Ukraine in partner with UNICEF Ukraine and the Institut français d’Ukraine, Kislow and Seth have yet again joined forces bringing together French and Ukrainian street art in this marvelous collaboration. Encompassing all that is beautiful about the old architecture and tradition of the city, the prime of Ukraine’s “Renaissance,” the surreal duo created a stunning landscape for the neighborhood to enjoy playing off of the rich colors of the area. Be sure to head on over the the Instiut’s page to see some more great detail shots of this wall.

Full Circle

The final wall of Alice Pasquini‘s three part mural story has been completed at the Amistad and Muscota Schools in Inwood, NYC. This beautiful piece along with her other two murals in the tri-state area takes us full circle through the story that all began with a message on a paper plane. Here Alice ambiguously leaves us to fill in the words of the letter from her friend “from aways” as it traveled across state lines on it’s “new journey” to Inwood. Softly faded across the brick facade it adds a hopeful image for all the school children to enjoy.

Out In The Open: Sepe x Tone

Organized by Galleri KIRK as a part of their new Out In The Open Mural Project in Aalborg, Denmark to “highlight Aalborg as an art and culture center while simultaneously creating an energetic public space for the benefit of all citizens,” the first of the murals has gone up, painted by Polish artists Sepe and Robert “Tone” Proch. This wonderful piece entitled by the fellows “Mayday Mayday” showcases the juxtaposition of their styles by utilizing water reflection. Tone’s more kinetic and abstracted work is perfect to show how water normally breaks apart images into distorted pieces, with Sepe’s elongated searchers up above look out for help.

Public: Pixel Pancho

PUBLIC, presented by the non-profit art organization FORM, is a celebration of urban art and creativity that will bring art to the streets of Perth, Australia. With the final days of the event winding down we are now seeing completed walls including this crazy one by Pixel Pancho. Integrating his robot life into this curious dated young boy the piece gives the wonderful illusion of falling apart and appears to have already begun its rusted stage some time ago.

New Journey

We’re super excited to share with you the latest wall as a part of our Savage Habbit murals project endeavor which was painted by the wonderful Alice Pasquini. Not only is she the first female that we have worked with (!!!!) but this wall is the second episode of a three mural story that spans the tri-state area. The story started its journey in Rockaway Beach, headed over to us in Jersey City, NJ and will finish off in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan. With this wall Alice plays off of ‘New Jersey’ with ‘New Journey’ in typical old type face [greetings from] Asbury Park postcard lettering, bringing a message of hope, dreams, and new beginnings to the community. We’re absolutely thrilled to have been able to work with her and have this positive energy in our streets, and be sure to check out our Flickr for all the progress and detail shots of this brilliant piece.

Also, many thanks to Matt Powers, Jessica Stewart, and Zippy for the great company, and to Mr. Mustart for adding in a sweet little bonus message on the side of the wall [dreams are the beginning of a...] to further the greater message of Alice’s wall.
