A look back at the "Coca-Cola mural" by Chris "Freedom" Pape

Street Art // Friday, January 18, 2013
Painted in 1995, the largest and most notable mural painted by artist Chris “Freedom” Pape in an Amtrack tunnel in New York was the "There's No Way Like the American Way" aka "The Coca-Cola Mural.” Over time, Pape had created a number of significant works in this dark location and the name for the tunnel was eventually dubbed “Freedom tunnel.” A majority of the works has since been removed by the buff, but you can still see some remnants where city workers were less ambitious.

“The people feed communism to the beast” is the title of this collaborative mural between street artists, Roa and Ever, painted in the neighborhood of Palermo Viejo in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Brendan Davis: The Hidden Treasures Series

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 18, 2013
An amazing installation series where Brendan Davis took mirroed monolith sculptures, put them in nature, and let the pieces reflect their surrounding that resulted in a surreal, almost mythical experience. Each mirrored "menhir" stood at 6.5 feet tall, which would tower over most people. The works were completed in 2010.
