A stunning work has just been producing in Gaza by artist Iyad Sabbah, documenting and preserving the destruction of the neighborhood of Shuja’iyya during the recent conflict and the now homeless community that once lived there. As DesignBoom points out, Sabbah "has set a family of clay figures wandering away from the war-torn wreckage. The models that comprise ‘worn out’ seem almost mummified, as if completely consumed by the death and devastation surrounding them."

We are always love seeing something new from INSA because it means experiencing public art in new and visually and technically creative ways. In addition to a new wall, INSA has launched his first ever app, the GIF-ITI viewer. Nowadays, we consume almost everything online: including art. The term GIF-ITI was coined by artist INSA when he started creating his unique animated paintings; an innovative approach to viewing and experiencing artworks produced in the public space.

The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC has commissioned artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada to create a new 'terrestrial portrait' on 6 acres of Americas National Mall. The piece appropriately titled, “Out of Many, One" is a direct translation from "E PLURBUS UNUN", the official modo on the National seal. The facescape is composed of dozens of images taken of anonymous American men (of all ethnicities) ultimately creating one singular portrait.

Eduardo Kobra has long been on the Juxtapoz radar, not only because he creates some of the more massive and intricate murals being done in the world today, but because he does them with super techni-color explosions. His multi-storied mural on skyscraper in Sao Paulo back in 2013 created a huge buzz in the street art community, and Kobra has continued to make great works since. This week, as part of the Perrier Street Art campaign and launch of new bottle and can designs by Kobra, Jon One, and Sasu, we sat down with Kobra to discuss his process, history, and how to paint big.

Kenny Scharf moved to the big Apple in the late 70’s, the Golden Age that continued throughout the early 80’s, when creativity and art ruled the streets of NYC. Inspired by graffiti’s lack of boundaries and the possibility to connect directly with people, Kenny’s principle is to reach out beyond the elitists’ limits of fine art and create a direct dialogue with popular culture trough his art.
