A couple of weeks ago in Casablanca, Morocco , Mexican artist Smithe presented a mural amongst several other artists from Mexico, Spain and Morocco for the Sbagha Bagha street art show during Boulevard Music Festival. For over ten days the artists adorned the walls of this white city in the third edition of this music and art festival.

Franco Fasoli aka Jaz is taking his murals to the next level. With solid colors and hermetic shapes, Jaz recreates the collage-style he had been developing on his last gallery-works. It's always good when a Muralist looks for new directions on his own style.

DALeast in Borås

Street Art // Wednesday, September 16, 2015
The artist spent a whole week working on 5 different sections of the 3 storey building, creating a dynamic image of a soaring eagle. The interesting architecture that dissects the image into pieces and puts it together from a certain viewing point is certainly adding to the effect of this striking mural. Created completely from 3D stripes that are ripping up and falling apart as he is roaming the skies, it is a classic example of DALeast's recognizable style. Painted with blue tones, the character itself symbolizes the vast blue sky in which the eagle dwells. The contrast between his majestic appearance and strong willpower to roam the skies is the encouraging message that the artist wanted to send out with this piece.

In the Magazine: Sever

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 09, 2015
On my many trips down to Atlanta, there is one recurring event that transpires with each visit: nail biting, stress provoking, near gridlock traffic anywhere and everywhere at rush hour. It seems unavoidable and is something I have come to anticipate. Thankfully, along with gasp-inducing car exhaust and brake dust clouding the windshield while waiting for the car in front to inch a few feet forward, I expect to spot Sever’s crispy bold lettering somewhere, on the ledge of a bridge, the back of a billboard, or some random wall where it has claimed the landscape ten years strong.
