Phlegm in Oslo, Norway

Street Art // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
The ARD*POP-UP 2012 has been underway in Oslo, Norway where multiple international artists are painting murals around the city. Phlegm came though and painted an eye-catching piece of a massive crocodile having his teeth extracted by the artist’s signature characters. Apparently the weather was harsh and Phlegm learned to paint with ski gloves. Didn’t seem to hinder his ability to produce something fantastic.

Damien Hirst "Verity" Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Finally, we found our Halloween costume. Recently, Damien Hirst's 66-foot bronze sculpture, Verity, was placed/erected/dropped in the coastal town of Ilfracombe, England. That is 66-feet of naked pregnant bronze woman holding a sword aloft standing upon legal books, with half her innards exposed and half her body just fully bronze and naked. For those into language, "verity" means "truth" in Italian.

What was once a temporary installation in Sydney's Angel Place from 2009, artist Michael Thomas Hill created Forgotten Songs, an installation of 110 empty birdcages suspended above the ground that also contained an audio element that gave the sound of 50 or so birds that used to exist in the area prior to industrialization. 

Ericailcane in Niort, France

Street Art // Monday, October 29, 2012
Ericailcane’s stylized storybook illustrations of animals in humanlike situations remain a favorite on ours. His work at first appears childlike, but contains adult issues and context. This new piece containing ducks and oil cans was painted for the 4eme Mur Festival in Niort, France.

There's no train like your first train

Street Art // Monday, October 29, 2012
Train murals showing engines highballing down the tracks have been painted for decades by railroaders and enthusiasts alike, an image that never gets old in our opinion. This mural in particular is uniquely different from the standard type you may find with its mountains of railroad spikes. It was painted by Imminent Disaster, Larry Lorca, and Mania in Richmond, Va.

Judith Supine x Jesse Hazelip

Street Art // Saturday, October 27, 2012
Earlier this week, we posted news of Judith Supine’s work popping up around the streets of Brooklyn, something we hadn’t seen in some time.  Now, a number of Supine’s wheatpastes with the illustration work of Jesse Hazelip have found their way outside as well. The additional layering of cholo style tattoos on Supine’s characters makes for a completely different result, plenty more menacing! If you want to see them in person, we suggest walking through the streets of Williamsburg and look for the fluorescent green, not hard to miss.
