Street Art // Friday, July 06, 2012
It’s been a while since we have posted new work from Spanish artist, Xuan Alyfe.  The artists often flattened perspective, geometrical shapes and dream-like surrealism continues to intrigue us.  We can’t compare Alyfe’s murals to other work being created outdoors right now, an important factor in our attraction to what he is doing.
