Recently painted in Córdoba, Spain is this wall by Sebas Velasco. Taking from his illustrative background he’s created an interesting visual piece that has been roughly painted on the wall. By blocking in colors that surround the landscape which is layered with translucent images and tags he brings this more classically painted piece a bit more street grittiness, making it perfectly composed reflecting the urban environment.
Painted alongside the Alexis Diaz and Borondo collaboration piece Pixel Pancho did this quickie as well on Brick Lane in London over the weekend as a part of the ongoing Walls Project organized by Global Street Art. Continuing his love for Victorian-esque portraiture he did this simple and lovely piece of a robotic gentleman dating him back to the late 1800′s, framed off and all.

With Alexis Diaz in town for last weeks show alongside JAZ at RexRomae in London he has now taken some time to leave a little something behind for the locals to enjoy. Painted in collaboration with Borondo who is also in town blessing hidden gems with his work the two did this quick skeletal mash up piece on Brick Lane of rough paint strokes and subtle detail lines as a part of the ongoing Walls Project organized by Global Street Art.

Painted as a part of the Leichardt Open Studio Trail in Sydney, Australia Fintan Magee killed this small wall… he seriously needs to be on everyone’s radar as his walls keep evolving into some serious street pieces. Anywho, this is yet another example of his stunning painterly technique tying in surreal situations and imagery. It’s simply and effective at portraying another side to street art that is softer and refreshing.
With Vinz in town for SCOPE NY we had the opportunity to take him around Jersey City, NJ again and get some of his awesome work up in the streets. At SCOPE his pieces were based on oil disasters and the dangers of the fracking industry which is reflected in the street pieces he did in J.C. The above shows a man sitting on an oil drum and literally oil drenched from head to toe, a direct correlation of how dangerous oil drilling is to our environment and animals. Head on over to our Flickr page to see the other gem he did located just around the block from this one – happy hunting!
This beautiful new piece was painted on the Big Chill Bar at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, London, England by Spanish artist Borondo. His work takes a stunning approach to street art by incorporating classical painting techniques, taking a much more poetic approach to walls as with the above of a man in a stock basically being called out with the word “cheese” above his head… partially immobilized he is put out there to be scorned by the public.

Olek‘s latest street intervention can be found on the Port de la Gare in Paris, France as a part of the Le MUR XIII billboard project which promotes urban art in this space by continually changing the art. Here Olek pays tribute to Marcel Duchamp who made “L.H.O.O.Q.” a famous pun as found in one of his found object pieces, which when pronounced individually in French the letters make the sentence “She is hot in the arse.” I always love the wit behind Olek’s work and the messages that come through and this one, almost 100 years later couldn’t be more fitting and appropriate to her yarn bombing.

With Pose in town for his “Spoiler Alert” solo presentation at the VOLTA-NY Fair on view as of today until Sunday with Jonathan Levine Gallery he has hit up the city with this super dope piece done in partner with the L.I.S.A. Project (Little Italy Street Art) which can be found at 188 Lafayette St. Featuring his signature graphic collage style he killed it with this small bit which will excitingly be continued in the summer over the whole four stories of the building! Be sure to check out all of the progress shots by the L.I.S.A. Project over here.

It’s Armory week here in NYC and the Scope Art Fair will be in full swing as of tomorrow until Sunday. With the many galleries showing at the fair I’m particularly excited to see Know Hope‘s mini solo show which will be part of Thinkspace Gallery‘s booth. Know Hope’s new pieces for “These Traintracks, They Remain, Ungrudged by the Passing Through” utilize found objects that have been painted and configured to create emotional stories such as the above piece “Acknowledging the Missing by Missing.”
This beautiful wall is just a section of what was painted by Guido van Helten out in Reykjavik, Iceland as a part of his RVK-RVX Project. Painting a total of three sides of the ‘Loftkastalinn’ building in the Old west side of Reykjavik, he referenced photographs by Andres Kolbeinsson as selected from the Reykjavik Museum of Photography archive. These photos which were taken from the screenplay of the Jean-Paul Satre play, ‘No Exit’ have now been made into iconic images with these stunningly soft and monochromatic pieces that dress the building sides. Be sure to check out his entire blog post for all of the wall images and more info.
