Artist to Watch: Escif

Street Art // Sunday, November 14, 2010

Street Art // Wednesday, November 03, 2010
We read about Banksy's Mexico work done in 1999 yesterday, but found the story behind the pieces almost too good to be true. According to Nuart, via Capturing Banksy, the Bristol-based artist went to "Chiapas in Mexico back in 1999 with the Bristol based anarchist football club The Easton Cowboys to play football against the Zapatista Army of National Liberation..."

Street Art // Friday, October 29, 2010
Combing on Os Gemeos' blog last night, we found some great documentary photos that famed Wim Wenders took of the twins painting inside a German rail tunnel. The series was shot for the “Out Sides” project and street art event held in Wüppertal 2006, and recently shown at the 20/Out, according to Os Gemeos' site.
