Spain dedicated this spot to all those who have been victims of police brutality and murder, an issue that is finally getting the international media attention that is needed. “Cops Under Flowers” with the names Michael Brown, Oscar Grant, Kelly Thomas and Trayvon Martin was painted by Spain. Also, lets not forget 18-year old Israel Hernández-Llach aka Reefa who was tazed to death by police last year in Miami for spray painting a shuttered McDonald's.

The Japanese artist Katsumi Hayakawa explores diverse notions related to space and perspective in VOID and SOLID, a new way of world making, his first solo exhibition in Spain. Hayakawa’s architectural sculptures, made out of varying paper densities, represent the human-made structures covering earth's surface. His attention to detail is apparent in the cuts and folds.

Daniel Muñoz, known to many as "SAN", has always had a talent for fine art and illustration, creating imaginary worlds that have made him one of the most fascinating and talented artists to emerge from Spain in recent years. He is also a very talented muralist and street artist. Recently, the Madrid-based artist completed a piece, roughly translated to "11 Figures Working In a Corner" on the small abandoned building in the town of Blanca, Murcia, Spain.

The Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga is presenting the first solo exhibition in a Spanish museum of KAWS, entitled FINAL DAYS. Curated by Fernando Francés, it includes five large-scale, carved wooden sculptures of his celebrated COMPANION, among other figures. In their numerous different versions, they represent the work for which KAWS, who is also a forerunner of the Art & Toys movement, is internationally known.

Spain and Polka take a spraycation to Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Berlin, and Stockholm. Gotta love the in your face bombing style of this video. It's always great to see some no care daytime bombing as people walk by like it's no big deal. Certainly can't get away with that type of behavior in America!

KAWS had a pretty amazing year in 2013, and the Brooklyn artist is right back at it in 2014 with "Play Your Part," an exhibition at Madrid's Galeria Javier Lopez. We have long been fans of the program at Javier Lopez, with Todd James, Kaws, Jenny Holzer, and Leo Villareal on the roster, and love how KAWS' work looks in the sparse space. If you are in Spain through April 23, go check it out.
