Juxtapoz @ Fame Festival: Day #1

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 23, 2011
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.

Escif @ Fame Festival 2011

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 13, 2011
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 in Ponta Delgada, Azores

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 22, 2011
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 in the ATL

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.

And then there was a Loud Sound

Street Art // Tuesday, August 09, 2011
Valencia-based artist, Escif painted this a few weeks back, but I don’t recall posting a photo of it and it’s too good not to share.

Hung Up

  After a long weekend there is a possibility of feeling disoriented, out of balance, like the world is upside down.  Spanish street artist, Escif in Los Angeles.  

Escif and Blu in Valencia, Spain

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 22, 2011
We spent significant time with Escif here in California over the past month, and we knew when he returned to Valencia, Spain, he had a wall to work on. That wall happened to be with Blu, with the Italian muralist making the rounds throughout Europe this summer.
