Valencia, Spain-based artist Escif has always been one of our favorite artists who works mostly in street art. His gallery show at POW in London a few years back led us to a great cover story with the artist in February 2011. Now, we want to help Escif publish his new book, Elsewhere, which he is trying to put out himself with the help of crowdsource funding. The book will be printed a a first edition of 1000 copies, hard cover, 300 PAGES, with different textures and stocks throughout. Let's make this happen.

Escif continues on with his persistent outdoor painting practices in his hometown of Valencia, Spain. His newest pieces are two very different ideas and images, one entitled “Reformas,” the other “Hawai-Bombay.”

When is that last time you saw Escif paint with color? The answer is obvious. In like forever, mannn. His new piece, “Uranio” came with a quote from the Spanish poet,León Felipe and the words “Destroying Miro.” Switching thins up and keeping it fresh.

With little information about this piece, Escif simply says, “Isolated nature on nature Island.” This island he speaks of is Mallorca, a tropical paradise located in the Mediterranean Sea off Spain. The building that Escif painted the collection of lush plants on appears to be a hotel (speculation). Hopefully, Escif is compensated with unlimited complimentary accommodations for his beautiful addition to this establishment.

With his newest pieces, Spanish muralist, Escif, paints two very different scenes to contemplate. The first is the image of a man with a camera around his neck being mauled by a tiger. This piece is entitled “Comunistas!!” In the second, there is long black box where the front of a horse appears on one side and the back pokes out the other. The piece is entitled “Paso de caballos.”

Escif’s newest work is on an extra long wall where he painted the repetitive image of a women standing next to a cow. The title to this piece paint in Ordes, Spain is “Extra Calcium.” We count 15 of the exact same image in a row, with each one separated by a square slab of stucco.
