Ornamento y Utopia

Street Art // Tuesday, June 14, 2011
It’s no secret we are fond of Spanish artist, Escif.  His work is minimal, well executed, and it seems he paints a new wall everyday.  We are eagerly awaiting his presence in San Francisco for his show at FIFTY24SF..

Escif x SAN in Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 08, 2011
Spanish artists SAN and Escif have just begun a month long tour of California with Upper Playground, culminating with a exhibition at their San Francisco space, FIFTY24SF Gallery. Their first piece was just completed on the side of De La Barracuda near Melrose and Fairfax in West Los Angeles.

Friendly Welcome

Street Art // Monday, June 06, 2011
Escif continues his persistent painting endeavors with this front door welcoming.  

House on a House

Street Art // Thursday, June 02, 2011
To coincide with a previous post where Spanish artist, Escif, painted a fence behind a fence, we now have a house on a house. Straightforward and effective.

Nomadismo & Sedentarismo

Street Art // Sunday, May 29, 2011
Wonder if this new Escif wall will be semi-censored like his previous walls with text in them?  We feel there is a lack of Siamese horses in general and we support their existence to the fullest.

Escif: A Fence Behind a Fence

Juxtapoz // Saturday, May 28, 2011
We get a kick out of the strong, simple conceptual works that our February 2011 cover artist, Escif, makes in Spain. He just sent us an email that simply read, "somebody painted a fence behind the fence." Clever, great work.

Democracia and Protocolo

Street Art // Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Escif has been receiving some semi-censorship lately. Apparently, an anonymous resident does not think the single words “Democracia” and “Protocolo” should be written on the walls, but Escif’s paintings can stay. Escif posted photos of two walls, before and after. One is vandalism, the other is not?

Escif: "Beautiful drawings can remain, but strange words must be buffed"

Street Art // Tuesday, April 26, 2011
February 2011 cover artist, Escif, noticed something interesting in his hometown of Valencia, Spain recently in regards to two of his newest street pieces: his pieces had been buffed, not in full, but just his single word text was covered. . .

Escif "Presentation-Representation"

Street Art // Monday, April 18, 2011
February 2011 cover artist, Escif, just created this new piece somewhere in Spain, which he calls "Presentation-Representation." As you can see, Escif recreated the house for which his piece sits upon in his now trademark street mural style. Bigger and more views after the jump . . .

The Street and Gallery Work of Poland's Zbiok

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 29, 2011
We just found this work from Wroclaw, Poland's Zbiok, who has painted with Escif and other European street artists that we like to follow. He is another one of these Europeans who happens to take fine art and apply it to street art. Take the outside, bring it inside, and then re-enter it back to the street. A good cycle. More views of Zbiok's work after the jump . . .
