Sandow Birk, featured in our January 2013 issue, just completed two murals with his wife Elyse Pignolet for the new SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco. In typical highly detailed style, Birk and Pignolet created the murals using hand-made, hand-painted ceramic tiles. Birk has a bunch of work in various exhibitions this year, but definitely worth checking out the new center and Birk and Pignolet's mural contributions.

Our current February printed issue features an insightful and inspiring look at the work of photographer Aaron Huey, including discussion of his ongoing project documenting the life of the Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Over the last seven years, Huey had been compiling images from the reservation, a place of intense poverty, violence, and suffering.

As you know reading our site over the years, we love mural projects, public art, and especially, public art in unexpected places (for example, see Escif & San's tour of the Southwest). That is why we are fascinated by Jane Kim, an artist, science illustrator, and founder of INK-DWELL Studio that has started the Migrating Mural project, a series of "murals painted along migration corridors shared by people and endangered animals."

We often post the chalk work of Paris-based artist, Philippe Baudelocque whenever we see something new pop up. His complex designs and patterns used to creat an array of different animals are some of the most interesting work we have seen created with chalk as the medium. The distinguished photography agency, Magnum Photo, had the artist draw this guerilla on the exterior of their Paris office.

This is the magnificent outcome of a five-alarm warehouse fire in Chicago that was extinguished in freezing temperatures. Two-hundred firefighters battled the fierce fire and the water sprayed apparently froze over instantly. Real life ice wonderland!
