"Rebirth of a mongoloid" by Medo

Street Art // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
This character by Medo is dark, mysterious and slightly creepy. It certainly was not put there to comfort you. The title of this piece is "Rebirth of a mongoloid."

Street Art // Monday, August 26, 2013
Unga from the Tel Aviv collective, Broken Fingaz, spent the last two weeks traveling through Rome and Sicily where he left some paint to dry on a few walls. One piece appears to be in a rural location, while the other in a city street.

Passing subway by Sbagliato in Pizzo, Italy

Street Art // Sunday, August 25, 2013
While in Southern Italy for the Mura Mura Festival, the artists collective, Sbagliato, cleverly transformed some arches on an existing wall to appear like a subway was passing. We are unsure whether the images of the subway are photos or drawings, whatever the medium, they work perfectly.

An update with Nelio

Street Art // Friday, August 23, 2013
It’s been a long time since we posted anything new from the France-based street artist and illustrator, Nelio. We were checking out a new wall he did in Moscow for the LGZ festival and realized that he has painted a hoard of walls around the globe in the last year.  Check out what he’s been cooking up in the streets.

Kitty Cat Kindergarten

Street Art // Friday, August 23, 2013
With a mouth as an entrance, a tale as a slide and two circular windows for eyes, this kitty-cat-kindergarten is truly a one of a kind educational experience for children in Wolfartsweie, Germany. Designed by artist Tomi Ungerer and architect Ayla-Suzan Yöndel, the cuddly kindergarten structure holds 100 children and has multiple classrooms, a coatroom, a dining room, a kitchen and the paws serve as indoor playrooms. We are slightly jealous and how come Japan wasn’t the first to be doing this? Cat cafes but no cat schools?

Last Days to See "10 Years of Wooster Collective" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 22, 2013
Earlier this month, we made our way to NYC to see a special pop-up space hosted by Jonathan LeVine gallery to celebrate 10 Years of Wooster Collective. The opening brought out old friends, lots of artists, and many examples of just how far the Street Art genre has grown even in just under a decade. From Shepard Fairey to Faile, Space Invader to JR, ROA to Swoon, the curation by Marc and Sara Schiller help capture the spirit of one of the original pioneers of sharing Street Art across a web-based platform, helping turn a burgeoning art scene into an international following and kinship amongst artists and enthusiasts. 

Tristan Eaton paints Audrey Hepburn for The LISA Project

Street Art // Thursday, August 22, 2013
Last week outside of Caffe Roma in Little Italy, New York, Tristan Eaton painted his own rendering of an image of Audrey Hepburn. Within the actress’s portrait you can see text, bright designs and patterns, appearing to be ripped revealing the layers underneath. The mural was part of the ongoing The Lisa Project (Little Italy Street Art Project).

Nychos x Dxtr in Copenhagen

Street Art // Thursday, August 22, 2013
Nychos is back at it again, this time with his Weird crewmate Dxtr in Copenhagen, Denmark. The two found a long trackside wall to douse with colorful paint. Each of the artists painted distinctly different letters. Nychos letters constructed of his signature bones with blood veins, and Dxtr with animal fur like texture in a calligraphy style. Both painted character heads that meet in the middle giving the wall some balance.

Mural by Fikos Antonios in Limerick, Ireland

Street Art // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
The mural festival season has been in full swing since the beginning of summer and our eyes have viewed hundreds if not thousands of murals in the last few months. After a while, many of the styles blend together and not much stands out. However, this piece by Greek-artist, Fikos Antonios, created for the “Make a Move” festival in Limerick, Ireland grabbed out attention instantly. It has a great ancient Greek traditional mural look, with elements and techniques from more contemporary art movements.
