OakOak is Back

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
Well, its not like French street interventionist, oaKoAk, had gone anywhere, because he has continually been creating some of the best and most humorous street works in the world, but we haven't looked into his newest works in quite some time.

"Penopticon" by Escif

Street Art // Monday, December 31, 2012
The panopticon is a type of institutional building designed to allow a watchman to observe inmates of an institution without them being able to tell whether or not they are being watched.

Kids Creating in Swoon's studio

Street Art // Sunday, December 30, 2012
An artist’s studio space such as Swoons must be highly entertaining and overwhelming for a young kid. These two have the potential to be the next art stars; surrounded with brilliant imagery at an impressionable age or maybe they will be completely over art when they become adults.
