February 2011 cover artist Escif’s politically conscious and thought provoking street work continually makes a strong impression on us. Unlike the majority of artists creating work in the public for “fame” purposes, Escif attempts to bring awareness to many of the current political and social issues of Spain.

We think that the whole tilt-shift trend is still something rather magical, a hallucinatory feeling but rooted in reality. Joerg Daiber's film focues on Spain, specifically the cities of Madrid, Seville, and El Chorro. The tagline reads: "Broke, But Beautiful." Well, we guess that is one way to put it.

Many street artists feel the need to create large-scale work, however the smaller pieces that are site specific are just as impactful. Spanish muralist, Hyuro is a great example of an artist working on a smaller scale, with strong imagery, and her work stands out among the rest. This newest piece, which we believe to be inspired by a Ryan McGinley photograph was painted in Valencia, Spain where you can see plenty of her other work in the streets.

The collaborative works of artists, Remed and Okuda, for the group show “ESTO NO ES GRAFFITI” at Delimbo Gallery in Sevilla, Spain, are quite impressive. Remed’s fusion of strong shapes and rich color palette combined with Okunda’s monotone figures compliment each other perfectly. Remed has something special coming up soon in our printed magazine department. Keep an eye out!

We gave you oversized installation objects by Lilian Bourgeat the other day, which served as a sort of interesting take on over indulgence. Today, we found out about a recent public art project from Spain's Estudion Mariscal, featuring extremely large patio chairs displayed in front of the Valladolid Hospital in Valladolid, Spain.

One of our favorite street intervention collectives we have seen over the past year is Luzinterruptus, a Madrid-based group that takes high-concept street art to a new level with fully interactive pieces that highlight the problems in the given city they work in. Pharmacy Herbs deals with light pollution in Madrid.

We love when one image leads us on a chase to find a full look at an artist's work. In this case, the particular image that had us immersed this morning was this painting by Bilbao, Spain based fine artist Joseba Eskubi, and it lead us to a great look of oil paintings from the artist. Part abstract with fleeting figurative elements, the paintings appear as mythical, historical moments.
