Arist Paige Smith has bedazzled the streets of Los Angeles with some intricately crafted geodes made of paper and paint that she installs in urban nooks and crannies. Consider the skill it takes to create and then secretly install this multi-faceted work, and keep your eyes peeled in So Cal. You might be lucky and discover some of these lovely street gems.

We love the murals of INTI, a Chilean artist we were excited to work with recently on a project in Barcelona with Mozilla. He just sent us pictures of his newest mural in Delhi, India, titled "Balance, done in conjunction with St+Art India for St+Art Delhi 2015. INTI told us, "This image is a hypothetical mixture of two distant lands. Even if there isn’t any direct relationship between them, they both have an essence and a cultural history which is colorful, festive and religious, where the power of belief and love goes beyond rationality."

Only the mighty Olek could create a breathtaking, back-breaking installation the size of a house and still look gorgeous and powerful during every second of the process. Always representing her work from head to toe, her art is truly an extension of her being, in both concept and aesthetics. We were lucky to catch up with her last year for our February 2014 issue, and have watched with awe since then as she travels the world, creating socially-conscious, spectacular visions of cultures woven together and inextricably linked, just like every stitch in her massive, color-saturated public artworks.

With each billboard altered by Parisian artist, Ox, the surrounding environment is taken in to account and visually played with, sometimes creating a sort of optical illusion. The styles range drastically, but each one appears very well thought out and executed.

As you know if you follow Juxtapoz Magazine, we spend a week each year in Norway for the Nuart Festival. For the 2014 festival, Nuart founder Martyn Reed was filmed by Hypebeast to capture the essence of not only the festival, but the town of Stavanger, Norway and the concept of bringing and developing art culture on the West Coast of Norway. We think you should watch because Reed gives a succinct message about the positive impacts that any art culture can have on a population regardless of genre.

“Dissolving Europe” is a new public work that stormed Europe this year by Vermibus, a Berlin based artist. Vermibus manipulates the images on modern advertisements by removing the flesh of the models on the posters.

Since meeting Andreco during Nuart 2014, he has fast become one of our favorite street and public artists. The balance of interventions, performance, environmentally-focused art with just purely beautiful aesthetics makes the Italian artist one of our favorites (and soon to be featured in an upcoming issue). On New Year's Eve a few weeks ago, in Bologna, Italy, Andreco and friends staged "Flags Up and Tongues Sticked Out," a performance piece, with each friend asked to "paint one side of a flag and burn it with the burning sculpture Vecchione in the main square of Bologna for The New Year Eve."

We got to spend some time with Spanish artist Borondo while at Nuart this past year, and loved his painterly style that ended up becoming multi-storied murals. Beautiful, intense stuff. The artist will open his largeest solo show to date, "Animal," at Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch, London, on February 5. We got a little teaser video to show you today...
