The work of Dasic

Street Art // Thursday, October 10, 2013
Sometimes you have to see something a few times before your brain actually registers its existence. That is certainly the case with Dasic’s work, whose murals we have seen in the past, most notably when collaborating with the artist Okuda. The Chilean-born, New York-based muralist has created a number of stunning large-scale works in various mediums over the years. For us, his most impressive piece is in Newburgh, New York, where the particular murals imagery wraps across the ceiling of an underpass dominating the architecture.

New Mural by Phlegm in Antwerp, Belgium

Street Art // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
In his last few murals, Sheffield-based artist, Phlegm, has been expanding and experimenting with his imagery in new interesting directions. Participating in the Day One Festival in Antwerp, Belgium, Phlegm acquired a giant wall, where he painted two mirroring figures. Painted in his typical monochrome palette, each figure adorns cities on their legs and several planets on their head that resemble something similar to a solar system mobile.

2 New Banksy pieces in Brooklyn

Street Art // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
Banksy continues his “New York Residency” creating two new works in the streets, this time both across the East River in Brooklyn. The first painted yesterday, was the image of a broken heart balloon painted in the Red Hook neighborhood. Due to cheap fame or other envious reasons, the heart was “sidebusted” quickly by a repeating Banksy “admirer” as we will call him. The second was marked on a door somewhere in Greenpoint...

Bizarre characters by Husk Mit Navn

We want to squeeze and hug the characters Husk paints, maybe even take them home with us. They just look so friendly and payful.

Ten-story Parisian building covered inside and out with over 100 artist's work

Street Art // Monday, October 07, 2013
A massive ten-story building in a low-income housing district of eastern Paris has become one of the largest venues displaying street art ever. Organized by art gallery owner Mehdi Ben Cheikh, “Tour 13” has taken seven months to complete and includes over 100 artists from around the globe. 36 Apartments, a basement, staircases, the façade, basically everything, has been covered in art. The catch is that the building is set to be demolished starting in November, so you have one month to go view this ephemeral project before it exists only in photos.

Natalia Rak's Legend Of Giants

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
Polish street artist, Natalia Rak, created this piece entitled, The Legend of Giants, a young girl in traditional Polish garb, watering a local tree.  Rak seems to have broken through a lot of trends in public art as of late, adding a clearly present feminine emotion to her work, essentially telling a story.  An exaggerated soft-tone fills the side of this 4-story building, almost as if the piece had brush strokes, not sprayed.  Which feels unfamiliar when compared to the more mechanical or deconstructed work we see today.
