A New Banksy Rat?

Street Art // Tuesday, April 26, 2011
There hasn't been a 100% confirmation that this new piece in Fitzrovia, central London yesterday (Monday) is a Banksy, but it sure looks like it could be a stencil from the artist whom we just saw at MOCA a few weeks back...

BLU and ERICAILCANE in Milan

Street Art // Friday, April 22, 2011
The Italians just do it better. Anytime BLU or Ericailcane do a wall it becomes news because they are talented duo leading the way in large-scale European mural work. The two just teamed up again for a piece in Milan called the "Skating Team" mural. More views after the jump . . .

Sights and Sounds at MOCA's "Art In the Streets"

Street Art // Tuesday, April 19, 2011
We are beginning to post our last images from last week at the MOCA, and we thought it only fitting to start it off with a photo of Art In the Streets curator (and Art In the Streets Issue editor) Roger Gastman and his mom. Because this is a family affair folks. More images after the jump, including Pamela Anderson . . .

Futura, Martha Cooper, Fab Five Freddy and others at MOCA's "Art In the Streets"

Street Art // Monday, April 18, 2011
Obviously, the legendary names and artists of New York City were a big part of the story at MOCA's "Art In the Streets," with Futura, Martha Cooper, Blade, Henry Chalfant, Fab 5 Freddy, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, Crash, and Freedom having major spaces in the Geffen building, as well as younger talents that later emerged like Dash Snow. More after the jump . . .

Escif "Presentation-Representation"

Street Art // Monday, April 18, 2011
February 2011 cover artist, Escif, just created this new piece somewhere in Spain, which he calls "Presentation-Representation." As you can see, Escif recreated the house for which his piece sits upon in his now trademark street mural style. Bigger and more views after the jump . . .

Street Market at MOCA's "Art In the Streets"

Street Art // Monday, April 18, 2011
As we mentioned late last week, the major highlight, at least for us, at Art In the Streets was the Steve "Espo" Powers, Todd "Reas" James, and Barry McGee recreation and update of their seminal 2000 Street Market show at Deitch Projects. Take it in after the jump . . .

Margaret Kilgallen and Bill Daniel at MOCA's "Art In the Streets"

Street Art // Monday, April 18, 2011
One of our personal favorite moments of the entire "Art In the Streets" exhibition is the recreation of one of Margaret Kilgallen's last exhibition brought to life at the MOCA. It makes for a stunning visual, as you come from both the energy of the Os Gemeos installation and the Los Angeles graffiti wall of Revok, Jersey Joe, Saber, and Risk into the folk, bohemian, iconic work of Kilgallen.

LEE and the Fun Gallery at MOCA's "Art In the Streets"

Street Art // Sunday, April 17, 2011
Another great part of the Art In the Streets exhibition is LEE Q's wall when you walk in, representing, or at least it seemed apparent to us, the NYC contingent at the show. And next to LEE's two pieces was a recreation of Patti Astor's seminal FUN Gallery that used to be the downtown spot in NYC for graffiti artists to exhibit in the 1980s. More after the jump . . .
