Street Art // Monday, April 29, 2013
The “No Muos” movement is attempting to halt the construction of a United States Department of Defense ground station that is being built within the Nature Reserve of Niscemi, Italy. The site has been deemed environmentally important by the European Commission Habitats Directive and public prosecutors have identified that the MUOS construction violates environmental legislation governing the nature reserve.

Six large inflatable sculptures currently on display at M+Museum in Hong Kong

Street Art // Friday, April 26, 2013
Los Angeles-based artist, Paul McCarthy, just took a giant poop in Hong Kong so to speak, but this wasn’t the first time this had happened, just the most recent. Back in 2008, the same ““Complex Pile” was installed in Switzerland and in a gust of wind took off bringing down a power line, breaking a greenhouse window, and smashed a window at a children’s home (We hope The Onion did something with this at some point).The outdoor sculpture park at the M+Museum in the West Kowloon district of Hong Kong is currently exhibiting this sculpture along with six other large inflatable sculptures by artists Cao Fei, Tam Wai Ping, Jeremy Delle, and Choi Jeong Hwa.

Blood Thirsty Snake painted by Nychos in Italy

Street Art // Thursday, April 25, 2013
While in Italy for his solo exhibition “Pellis Os Omentum” at Galo Art Gallery, Nychos squeezed in some extra time to paint this huge, very menacing-looking, semi-dissected snake. There is impressive detail painted using a spray can on this serpent, with fierce fangs ready to bite down and taste blood from its prey. And of course, a human skeleton is inside the stomach, which is common with many of the animals the artist creates.

Street Art // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Traveling vagabond muralist, Roa, painted an impressive amount of large animals during a recent visit to Panama City, Panama. We believe these to be some of his best work yet, with thoughtful use of space working with the existing architecture.
