"Highlander System" by Kofie

Street Art // Saturday, November 02, 2013
Los Angeles-based artist, Kofie, has been painting abstract geometric shapes and forms long before it became fashionable among the current wave of street artists. Loosely influenced by architectural drafting, Kofie’s work is rich in composition and detail. This piece entitled “Highlander System” was painted at the corner of Highland and Melrose in Los Angeles, with spraypaint and acrylic.

Justin Bieber has a "new hobby"

Street Art // Friday, November 01, 2013
The oh-so culturally hip musician, Justin Beiber, has decided  his “new hobby” is street art. We are going to guess Banksy’s media frenzy had something to do with this? Before going out and getting his spray on, Beiber made sure he was wearing the appropriate attire which included a hoodie, a baseball hat, sneakers and of course sagging his baggy pants. The 19-year old painted the words “Street art” and the image of a “Tupac frog” while in Bogota, Colombia. No need to critique young Bieber’s skills as these pictures say so much. 

Princess Peach mosaic by Invader

Street Art // Friday, November 01, 2013
Allegedly, Invader was arrested while installing this Princess Peach mosaic in the Lower East Side in Manhattan the other night. Although, it looks complete so when was he exactly apprehended? We really don’t think it’s important whether or not this happened; we really just like the piece. And remember if you’re doing illegal street work in the police state that is New York, the probability of you getting arrested it high. So don’t be so surprised. It happens often. The building owner has taken it down with its fate unknown.

New piece by Xuan Alyfe

Street Art // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Over the last few years, we have witnessed Xuan Alyfe’s slow, but natural progression from very small-scale murals to large, and no matter the size, the Spanish artist’s work consistently incorporates precise and meticulous detail. In this newest piece, the artist has stuck with a distinct color palette, working with geometric abstractions and other surreal imagery.
