Hense Mural in Lima, Peru

Street Art // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Working with a team of 10 and using over 200 gallons of latex paint including spray paint, Atlanta-based artist, Hense, recently completed this 137 foot tall and 170 feet wide mural in Lima, Peru. More known for his bold illegal graffiti, in the past couple years the artist’s work has changed, moving in a nonrepresentational and abstract direction. Speaking on this particular mural Hense said “These works are inspired by the architecture and context of the structure. In this case I wanted to use very bright colors that would pop against the sky and next to other near by architecture in Lima.” 

Hyuro x Escif in Valencia, Spain

Street Art // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
We would expect more collaborations between artists, Escif and Hyuro, solely based on their similar styles and both being in Valencia, Spain, however that’s not the case. Occasionally they do work together and when they do they compliment each other well. On this new wall, Hyuro used her talents to paint a number of wolfs while Escif created two identical classic-looking yellow cars.

A massive and beautifully colored Falcon was painted on the side of the residential building in Biel, Switzerland by artist Wes 21. With this piece, the artist made excellent use of an awkward space, incorporating the other building to look like the falcon is grasping it and the working right through the windows without painting them.

Kenny Scharf arrested, googled, and asked for autograph

Street Art // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Our May cover artist, Kenny Scharf, was apparently arrested for what over the last 30 years he has become well-known for, spray painting. Apparently the artist was arrested in Bushwick, Brooklyn while painting one of his signature snakes and apparently as Art Sucks reports, while in custody cops were googling him and requesting autographs. "Cops who arrested me were fans and wanted to talk about exit through the gift shop and even liked the tag. At the first holding cell in Williamsburg (there were only 5 people in the cell) the police were googling me and asking about things like the tunnel nightclub." He continued on in saying “I was in there 30 years ago and im sorry to say its much worse now. Kind of like hell.”

"X-rainbow" by Shok

Street Art // Monday, April 22, 2013
London-based artist, Shok, skillfully uses spray paint to create work that resembles x-ray negatives with a twist of abstraction and some added color. With his newest piece the artist created a rainbow color way consisting of bones, a clock, a fingerprint, and what we think looks like cosmic dust.

Video: STREET ART FOR SALE

Street Art // Friday, April 19, 2013
We find it strange that in cities like London people are offering “Street art tours,” where guides steer you in the direction of all the best pieces by well-known artists. There is a large audience that has been built from the surge of work in the streets and just as much attention from art dealers and buyers hoping to make the right investment. Interesting perspective in this video depending on your point of view of street art.
