Cleon Peterson just completed a large 2-color mural that shows his signature characters acting out in violent scenarios against one another. The artist was recently in London for his exhibition “There is A War” at the Outsiders London Gallery and has now returned to bring his savage imagery to this wall in the L.A. art district.

One of our favorite artists, Maya Hayuk, will be creating a new site-specific mural on the Lobby Wall of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for her first one-person US museum exhibition. "Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form." Maya was featured in our special December 2009 Barnstormers issue.

We're on a bug art kick even though we didn't know that was a thing until this morning. The second piece of bug art we are enjoying this morning is John Knuth's collaboration with MOCAtv using 250,000 house flies! He uses the digestive process of the fly to paint a canvas with the pigmented organic waste of the flies. Watch the video after the jump!
