As we prepare our own trip to Grottaglie, Italy for Fame Festival later this month, we are keeping up with the work being presented in the Southern Italian city. Now up is duo Brakay (Brad Downey and A Kay), who have gone around Grottaglie and left little treasures and conceptual pieces, using the narrow streets to their advantage.

As we prepare for our trip to Fame Festival at the end of September, we have been doing our research, and one artist we are learning about is Polish artist, Nespoon. She works in ceramics, and creates handmade public works. When at Fame in Italy this summer, she spent a month with local artisans creating a body of work to place around Grottaglie.

It is becoming that time of year again, where artists from around the world descend on the small Italian town of Grottaglie to create some of the best public art of the year for Fame Festival. Germany's Boris Hoppek, a personal favorite of this site, has spent some time already making a body of work around Grottaglie.

On the opening night of MOCA's "Art In the Streets," we got a chance to meet UK-artist Word To Mother, and even sat next to him at a Japanese restaurant late in the evening after the festivities died down. So we were happy to see "Madre," a nice short film made about Word's experience at the Italian Fame Festival in 2010.

*Every Sunday, Juxtapoz.com will highlight an artist that we feel is currently on the cusp of a new level of critical and technical success. The artist we feature will not necessarily be unknown, nor will they be of a pre-established museum career. But they will be artists who have showcased progress in a new body of work that deserves continual examination. We will mostly look at the work itself and let the art speak. Today, we feature Spanish street and fine artist, Escif.
