Six large inflatable sculptures currently on display at M+Museum in Hong Kong

Street Art // Friday, April 26, 2013
Los Angeles-based artist, Paul McCarthy, just took a giant poop in Hong Kong so to speak, but this wasn’t the first time this had happened, just the most recent. Back in 2008, the same ““Complex Pile” was installed in Switzerland and in a gust of wind took off bringing down a power line, breaking a greenhouse window, and smashed a window at a children’s home (We hope The Onion did something with this at some point).The outdoor sculpture park at the M+Museum in the West Kowloon district of Hong Kong is currently exhibiting this sculpture along with six other large inflatable sculptures by artists Cao Fei, Tam Wai Ping, Jeremy Delle, and Choi Jeong Hwa. 

Conor Harrington & Maser collaboration in London, UK

Street Art // Friday, April 26, 2013
We posted photos earlier this week of some new work that popped up in the streets of London from Conor Harrington. Again, the artist is back at with another new piece this time in collaboration with artist, Maser. If your looking to see this in person it can be located somewhere on Buxton Street, we don’t think it will be too hard to miss.

Buff Face Killa...

Street Art // Thursday, April 25, 2013
It’s always intersting when something that was placed on a wall to eradicate old vandalism ends up being the motivation for new vandalism. Smug looking face in Seatlle courtesy of Kize.

Blood Thirsty Snake painted by Nychos in Italy

Street Art // Thursday, April 25, 2013
While in Italy for his solo exhibition “Pellis Os Omentum” at Galo Art Gallery, Nychos squeezed in some extra time to paint this huge, very menacing-looking, semi-dissected snake. There is impressive detail painted using a spray can on this serpent, with fierce fangs ready to bite down and taste blood from its prey. And of course, a human skeleton is inside the stomach, which is common with many of the animals the artist creates. 

Roa in Panama City

Street Art // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Traveling vagabond muralist, Roa, painted an impressive amount of large animals during a recent visit to Panama City, Panama. We believe these to be some of his best work yet, with thoughtful use of space working with the existing architecture.

Hense Mural in Lima, Peru

Street Art // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Working with a team of 10 and using over 200 gallons of latex paint including spray paint, Atlanta-based artist, Hense, recently completed this 137 foot tall and 170 feet wide mural in Lima, Peru. More known for his bold illegal graffiti, in the past couple years the artist’s work has changed, moving in a nonrepresentational and abstract direction. Speaking on this particular mural Hense said “These works are inspired by the architecture and context of the structure. In this case I wanted to use very bright colors that would pop against the sky and next to other near by architecture in Lima.” 

Hyuro x Escif in Valencia, Spain

Street Art // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
We would expect more collaborations between artists, Escif and Hyuro, solely based on their similar styles and both being in Valencia, Spain, however that’s not the case. Occasionally they do work together and when they do they compliment each other well. On this new wall, Hyuro used her talents to paint a number of wolfs while Escif created two identical classic-looking yellow cars.

The Public Art of Jaume Plensa

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
We have been huge fans of the works of Jaume Plensa for a long time, and always like sneaking a peek at the sculpture he has up in the Crosby Street Hotel, but his public art is where its at. The artist has lived in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, England, France, USA, and Barcelona, and is best known for his works using the human figure comprised with numbers. He recently had works installed in Calgary, Alberta and Helsinki, Finland.

Massive Falcon by Wes 21

Street Art // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
A massive and beautifully colored Falcon was painted on the side of the residential building in Biel, Switzerland by artist Wes 21. With this piece, the artist made excellent use of an awkward space, incorporating the other building to look like the falcon is grasping it and the working right through the windows without painting them.

Street Art // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Phlegm made his was down to this drain in his hometown of Sheffield to paint a large set of unknown animals bones. This creature apparently ate an entire human as well.
