JR pastes Rikers Island Jail

Street Art // Thursday, May 09, 2013
As if being in jail and being watched every moment was not enough, artist JR has made sure that the almighty eye will be watching over you. Invited to install work at Rikers Island in New York, JR took photographs of inmate’s eyes and pasted them in three different locations around the complex. The artist spoke on this project saying, “We just pasted the eye of another Inmate on the 2 South Building of the Rikers Island Jail in New York City. He wanted me to choose his eye looking left as life in jail is all about watching your back... He came out in the jail Yard when we were pasting. He's 18years old, it's his second time in Jail. Even if no one will recognize his eye he knows he's part of a bigger picture.”

We love these murals by Iranian street artist Mehdi Ghadyanloo. They are fun, playful, bright, and the perspective, depth, and imagination are fantastic!

The grimey streets of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District are always bustling with colorful action and have received a major visual upgrade by our January 2013 cover artist, Aryz. The Spanish artist spent 10 days on a lift painting this 7-story piece with rollers and it’s certainly turning heads. If you are in San Francisco and want to see it in person, head down to Eddy and Polk streets.

4 murals by David de la Mano and Pablo S. Herrero

Street Art // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
Frequent collaborators David de la Mano and Pablo S. Herrero both create silhouetted imagery that compliments each other’s work naturally, making it hard to differentiate the two (Mano paints the figures while Herrero contributes the natural elements). The pair worked on four murals in Winter Haven, Florida, all with a distinctly different composition and concept. We are especially fond of the wall where the tree limbs are creating the face!

"Vision Of The Corn Spirit" by AEC

Street Art // Tuesday, May 07, 2013
We have made it very apparent for some time now that we are fans of all things relating to Interesni Kazki. Even this pen and ink drawing by AEC is post worthy. A very wild imagination AEC possesses of a world completely foreign to what we know..
