C215 in the UK

Street Art // Wednesday, March 07, 2012
Constantly moving around European cities and spraying his vibrant, highly detailed stencils, C215, has had a busy 2012 already.   Berlin, Italy, and Barcelona have all seen numerous pieces appear around town, and now the Uk has a little more color.

Kent Twitchell

Street Art // Tuesday, March 06, 2012
Arriving in Los Angeles in 1968, Kent Twitchell’s impact on the mural movement was considerable. Many of his realism murals can still be seen around Los Angeles, although many fell victim to graffiti and weather deterioration over the last 15 years. Chances are you have seen some of these murals but never realized who was responsible. In 2008, Twitchell settled a lawsuit against 12 defendants and the U.S. Government for painting over a 70 –foot-tall landmark mural he had painted of Edward Ruscha.

"Prey to some Wild Beast" by Phlegm

Street Art // Tuesday, March 06, 2012
We’ve watched the movie Beetlejuice enough times to immediately compare this new Phlegm wall to the large serpents that come barreling out the sand in several scenes. We could also reference to the movie Tremors.  Likely, Phlegm referenced neither.  Wonderful use of wallspace.

"All that is left" by Escif

Street Art // Monday, March 05, 2012
It’s the beginning of the week and their are new Escif murals to share.  This newest piece was painted once again in his hometown of Valencia, Spain.  Escif attempts to educate his viewers by stating the following about this piece, “Fallas are a popular festival with a strong tradition in Valencia city. The popular version of the origin of Fallas said that it were initiated by the carpenters’ guild. On the eve of the day of its patron St. Joseph, they burned in a purifying fire, chips and all that was left over, making cleaning of the workshops before entering the spring.”

New Jaz Mural in Lima, Peru

Argentina-based street decorator, Jaz, was recently in Lima for the Latir Latino Festival and had the opportunity to paint this huge mural right next to a Gold’s Gym.  Looking similar to an oversized canvas, the two beast men definitely stand out amongst the muted landscape.
