Roa paints decomposing coyote in Brooklyn

Street Art // Friday, August 16, 2013
After we just saw Roa in Rochester, NY for Wall Therapy, he is now in Brooklyn where he just finished painting a decomposing coyote on the side of Pandemic Gallery. No stranger to making use of awkward spaces, Roa made great use here by going above the door and made the animals tail extend on to the rolldown.

LIVING WALLS 2013 - Part 2

Street Art // Thursday, August 15, 2013
On our second day in Atlanta for the Living Walls Conference, we walked out of our hotel straight into the beautiful Piedmont Park, which is as pristine and well-manicured a public park can get. From there we caught up with some more wall action, first checking out Agostino Lacurci’s vibrant painting of a character sitting in a chair accompanied by four masked dogs. Then we saw Jaz’s first mural painted for the conference: a stunning piece involving bulls around a fire in the woods, creating a serene but dark overall ambiance.

Living Walls 2013 - Part 1

Street Art // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
On our first day in Atlanta aka The ATL, Hotlanta or A-Town, we toured around to some of the walls checking out the muralists as they endure the summer heat and lay some paint down. First we got to view some walls by famed-photographer, JR that had been done the week prior before the conference kicked off. After that we caught up with 3ttman as he worked on a massive wall packed full of playful and vibrant colored imagery. Then we saw walls from Inti, Jaz, Know Hope and Roti in collaboration with Jaz. Our night ended at a” mansion party” and in true southern style, it had the largest porch we have had the opportunity to loiter on! Check back tomorrow for more updates!

Nychos x Smithe in Brooklyn

Street Art // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
This insanely detailed painting of some sort of dissected cyborg animal was the result of Nychos and Smithe collaborating in Bushwick, Brooklyn. It was the first time these two had worked together and saying their styles compliment each other is surely an understatement.
