We actually reallly like the size here in the construction of the world's first Lego Colosseum, created by certified Lego builder, Ryan McNaught. Over 200.000 bricks were needed to create this Roman scene and structure, and you even get the outdoor pavillions and walkways with gladiators and rulers surrounding the great Colosseum.

Back in 2010, when we first saw the work of Palmero, Italy based fine artist, Fulvio di Piazza, we knew there was something special going on. Now, di Piazza has a new solo show back at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, full of oil on canvas surreal mindwarps, based on the economic writings of Jeremy Rifkin, and his 1980 book, Entropy.

The people/person at Studio Cromie in Grottaglie, Italy who organize and produce the fantastic public art festival, FAME, have just started a site-specific project of tee-shirts made in limited numbers at the Studio Cromie space. If you have ever been to Grottaglie, then you know how distinct and fantastic the various walls and buildings are, and Studio Cromie has captured the unique aesthetic on the tees. Video after the jump...

We love being blown away on a Saturday morning, and the paintings of Rome, Italy and USA-based fine artist Francesca Bilfuco are full of incredible skill and unique styles, we just can't help but want to get on a plane and fly to her show in Tokyo this August.

Remed has a way with mixing styles from past and present, and when he paints a mural there is no confusion to who is responsible. Not one to cover an entire wall in paint, his minimalist approach is just as effective. He recently created the following mural in San Benedetto, Italy using acrylic on concrete blocks. Be on the lookout for an upcoming feature with Remed in our printed magazine.

Italian street muralist, Ericailcane, recently painted what looks to us like a rugged hamster holding on tight to some gold coinage in the city of Modena. Why he has a noose around his neck is a mystery?

It should never be easy with portrait art. Italian artist Pamela Campagna creates portraits by putting nails into a wooden board and then using thread to create the figurative elements of the face and body. Geometric patterns make expressions, and we wish there was a video to go with these to see how she plots each piece from start to finish.

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.
