UK-based muralist, Phlegm, recently completed this 4 story high mural in Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza for The Bloop Festival.  The walls show two mechanical arms operating each other by the pull of a string with the artist’s signature characters doing a little maintenance.  Hopefully the artist was able to take a dip in that pool next door after baking in the sun painting this piece.

Roa's Mural Eaten Up in Chicago

Street Art // Wednesday, August 08, 2012
One of Roa’s most recent murals shows a giant animal with a massive chunk bitten out of him, yet from another angle it looks fully intact. This one was painted in Chicago and you see it in person off 16th St. in Pilsen.

Sustainable Pavilion Containing Corn

Street Art // Wednesday, August 08, 2012
This cleverly designed pavilion was created by St. Andre-Lang Architectes constructed of wood, corn, and fencing.  Located in the North-East of France, the circular design allows for views of the entire surrounding landscape. Dried corncobs line the interior wood structure and external mesh to form the walls and act as insulation and protection. Esthetically marvelous, we wonder is this structure will be a magnet for animals and rodents as the corn dries out?

This site-specific mural speaks directly on the island of Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and currently in an economic crisis.

Moneyless @ Fame Festival 2012

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
Last summer when we headed to Grottaglie, Italy for Fame Festival, one of the artists that stood out to us was Moneyless. His geometric, abstract murals and sculptures were both a surprise to see and hidden gems throughout the town. Of all the works around town, Moneyless made you think twice about function and its existence amogst the town. It looked seemless, but also mysterious. This year, Moneyless is back, and Fame has a nice video of his progress, as well as the making of his prints for Studiocromie.
