Last night, Grottaglie took on a whole new level energy as Fame Festival was officially opened to the public with the opening in the ceramics district. Most importantly, maps were handed out, and the city was crowded with street art enthusiasts walking and driving around the city to see the new additions to the public landscape this past summer.

After a long drive in the wee hours of the morning, Juxtapoz arrived in the beautiful hill town of Grottaglie in Southern Italy to attend the opening of FAME Festival. With just a few hours to run around the town before sleep called, we saw work by Escif, Blu, Vhils, Lucy McLauchlan, Nespoon, Os Gemeos, Sam 3, Swoon, and others.

Nuart, hosted in the Norwegian city of Stavanger, is getting set to kick off on Ocotber 1, 2011 with artists from around the world descending upon the West Coast of the Scandinavian country. We are heading out there too, to see David Choe, Escif, Herbert Baglione, Hyuro, Dan Witz, Phlegm, and others paint on the city walls.

If we didn't already have a reason to be excited about going to Southern Italy for Fame Festival 2011 next week, we just saw the new work that Spanish artist (and February 2011 cover artist) Escif just completed in the town of Grottaglie. After the jump, watch the short videos of Escif working in Italy...

Escif has been busy all summer, with stops touring California, Atlanta, and numerous pieces popping up in Europe. He just sent us a collection of images he completed on the Azores in Ponta Delgada for a Walk and Talk event, where he said the town was a "volcanic place with huge nature environement, kind of like Jurassic Park."

Escif has been acquiring prime locations in a variety of cities this summer, this one being no exception, painted for the Living Walls Conference in Atlanta. As usual Escif’s work remains simple and clever.

Nathan Bowen cleaned up the surrounding area on this garage door preserving Escif’s head. Located somewhere in London... we believe Escif did this piece when preparing his solo show at Pictures on Walls last year.
