Street Art // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
A 22-story high glass building in Taipei, Taiwan has become a remarkable spectacle after Agostino lucurci was commissioned to create a mural on the side of it. Using perforated vinyl adhesive, the Italian artist affixed the giant image of a bicyclist, a bird and a potted plant to the windows of the Fubon Art Foundation. Windows are rarely used for murals and it certainly adds a powerful impact to this piece.

Playful Street Art by Ian Stevenson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
"Ian's ideas are crammed into his head like toys in a popular middle-class boy's bedroom...Ian's eyes are keener than a trucker's on special trucker speed and with those soppy old big blues of his he began to notice all over blank, cheerless surfaces, gaping and desolate waiting to be filled: a discarded fridge here, an abandoned gas fire there, rubbish bags and cardboard boxes, all with handy blank spaces, acting like fertilizer to ripen Ian’s mind."  

Gilbert & George's High line Billboard

Street Art // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Gilbert & George are now the eleventh artists to have their work displayed on the 25-by-75 foot High Line Billboard in the Chelsea District of New York City. The London-based duo originally created this piece entitled “Waking” in 1984. “An image populated by the young that represent the primal life forces at their most formative and explosive stages” as describes from the High Lines website and further states “The artists – their faces transformed into masks by overlaid color – evoke a kind of inner awakening, perhaps the passage from boyhood to manhood, which the hierarchy of the three figures seems to suggest. The billboard will be on display from September 3 to October1, 2013 and can be found at 8th Street and 10th Avenue.

New Roa Mural in Lodz, Poland

Street Art // Monday, September 09, 2013
Participating in the Fundacja Urban Forms Festival, the always-traveling vagabond artist, Roa, painted three ferrets (we think?) protecting their nest of eggs. One of the aspects of Roa’s work we admire most is his ability to utilize space to incorporate his animals. This particular piece is a perfect example of thoughtful placement.
