3D Street Art by Francois Abelane... Large-Scale

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We can't really fathom what goes into these projects, but for Francois Abelane and this 4,000 square meter slab of 3D street art/literal on the street art, we are going to make an educated guess that this may be hard to accomplish. We just read on Indulgd that the project was done as a commission, "to launch of a new line of Renault trucks in Lyon, France."

"Adam Sushi" by Zed1

Street Art // Thursday, July 11, 2013
Zed1 did an excellent job incorporating the façade of this building (most notably the window) into his newest piece in Amsterdam, Holland. Painted on brick, the artist created the image of a wealthy hand using chopsticks to grab the modest houseboat with its occupant. Could it be Possible Zed1 is commenting on current housing costs and condition or the divide of classes in our current society? Probably a lot of things are being questioned here in this beautiful mural.

Located in the Atacama Desert in Chile, El Mano del Desierto is a large-scale sculpture of a hand constructed in the early ‘90s by the Chilean sculptor, Mario Irarrazebal. The artist made the sculpture predominantly from stone and used the hand on the isolated desert plateau to express emotions like injustice, loneliness, sorrow and torture. 

ESCIF at Public Art in Horsens, Denmark

Street Art // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Escif has been hard at work creating multiple murals in Horsens, Denmark for the Public Art Event. The artist created three notablydifferent pieces with varying concepts. Cleverly, one of the murals Escif painted was a mirror of the business facade directly to the right of it entitled  “Buruck Pizza.”  In another, the artist painted his characters performing self-defense techniques on a huge building which was named “How to Survive Horsens.” 

Another Weird production in Detroit

Street Art // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Yesterday we posted about the Weird Crewmembers painting a large mural for the “Eastern Market” in Detroit, but apparently that was not all they have been up to on their visit to The Motor City. The crew also painted this collage madness of imagery and there is plenty to look at. Even some French fries made their way in there along with a severed shark. Painted by Nychos, Dxtr, Cone, Hrvb, and Look.

The 2013 Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Our neighbor has a hedge shaped like several lopsided giant spheres and we once saw a shrubbery carved to look like a sheep. We have never seen anything of the likes of the horticulture art at Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal, an international competition in Montreal, Canada. Mosaiculture, for those of you who were as clueless as us, "is a refined horticultural art that involves creating and mounting living artworks made primarily from plants with colorful foliage (generally annuals, and occasionally perennials)."
