Earlier this week, we showed you a video of How & Nosm at work in NYC, and yesterday, a few blocks from the MOCA, we found the pair working on this massive mural in Downtown Los Angeles. We don't want to show too much of the incomplete figure, but the details of this multi-storied mural are impressive. More after the jump . . .

Conor Harrington street work is hard to come by these days, and the former Juxtapoz cover artist teamed up Vhils in Portugal for a nice combo piece. Our Conor Harrington wrote, "Our ideas are quite similar, mixing realism and abstraction through various layers so we gave it a go in an abandoned factory outside Lisbon." More after the jump . . .

We just found this work from Wroclaw, Poland's Zbiok, who has painted with Escif and other European street artists that we like to follow. He is another one of these Europeans who happens to take fine art and apply it to street art. Take the outside, bring it inside, and then re-enter it back to the street. A good cycle. More views of Zbiok's work after the jump . . .
