It’s been too long since we have seen any new work from Polish street artist, Mariusz Waras, aka M-City, however the Internet has produced images of a new mural he recently painted in Carugate, Italy. Thank you Internet for allowing us to sit in our rooms, in our pajamas on a rainy day, and view art we may never have the opportunity to view in person.

Ferrara, Italy-based digital artist, Stefano Bonazzi combines charcoal drawing, photo editing, and digital photography to produce his work, and his beautiful series, Smoke is one that deserves the most attention. His nude subjects seem to vanish into a veil of smoke from both ends of their bodies, creating mysterious and elegant shades of black, white, and grey around the human form.

We were looking back in our archives if we ever posted this, and it looks like we hadn't. And it is never too late to show you a 28-meter long skeleton.

We have always loved the way Dr Lakra takes found vintage photography or fashion magazine covers and applies his signature tattoo handstyle over the top. Today, we just saw the work of Italian artist, Maurizio Anzeri, who embroiders elaborate patterns upon found photography, and like Lakra, creates a beautiful combination of vintage and contemporary art style.

We knew Sao Paulo-based Herbert Baglione was off to Rome for the Outdoor Festival as soon as we departed Nuart in Norway, and now we are seeing the looks of the multi-paneled mural he painted in Italy. We always like when Herbert adds the chaotic scratches above his characters, as he has done here with this panel.
