WALL THERAPY 2013 - Part 1

Street Art // Thursday, July 25, 2013
Juxtapoz has touched down in Rochester, NY for Wall Therapy and we are dashing around town trying to catch up with all the murals being created from over 30 artists. With our host and founder of the event, Dr. Ian Wilson, we made our first stop at the old abandoned train tunnels where we found two new highly patriotic pieces from the elusive artist Chris “Freedom” Pape, which is the rarest of treats considering we can’t even recall the last time we saw something new from him this decade (The famed Freedom Tunnels in New York were named after Freedom who created some of the first mural ever in there).

Vilks paints some new things...

Street Art // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
We don’t know much about the Parisian artist who goes by the name Vilks, other than they have a wild imagination when it comes to painting. The mysterious artist recently painted two trains and a wall in their comic book, things-are melting-and-distorting kind of way.

Ericailcane x Bastardilla in Italy Part 2

Street Art // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Last week, Ericailcane and Bastardilla combined efforts painting a large wall for the Icone5.9 Festival in Modeni, Italy. The two varying styles of each of these artists complement and blend well with each other, creating a very natural-looking collaboration. Their new mural shows Ericailcane’s menacing bunnies burning a car with the help of a matchbox held by Bastardilla’s bright orange-red character.

Street Art // Monday, July 22, 2013
It’s difficult to fully appreciate the fine detail in the work of Alexis Diaz (La Pandilla) without viewing it in person. Thousands of brush strokes are made to create his animal-based imagery. His newest wall in London is a hybrid of an elephant, with lengthy octopus arms for tusks painted in his signature monochromatic style.
