These colorful, blobby creatures, called Flossis, are taking over Germany! Designed by artist Rosalie, the installation of playful figures can be seen climbing the exterior walls of many buildings in Düsseldorf, Germany, including The Roggendorf House. The decorative figures add a fun element along The Rhine, as viewers observe the invasion of the human-like forms who fearlessly climb the walls with their suction cup hands and feet. Upon reaching the top of the building, the happy clan of sculptures are placed standing or sitting, with legs hanging over the edge of the roof, happily waving down to the audience of passers-by below.

The Gue(ho)st House

The Gue(ho)st House | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

This strange building looking similar to something out of a Dr. Seuss novel is the result of covering the structure in huge blocks of polystyrene with resin and adding a heavy coat of white paint on top. Used as a contemporary arts space, the idea for the building was created by French artists, Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus.

Stirring Street Art In South Africa by Faith47

Stirring Street Art In South Africa by Faith47 | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Street art with potential political power often falters. The intent derailed by concepts that don't share the weight of the issues presented. However, much as JR has successfully employed marginalized faces in his large-scale photographic interventions, Faith47 finds inspiration in real people.

His "The Long Wait" series in Johannesburg has popped up a month before his official exhibition there at David Krut Gallery. He says of the murals, "there has been so much waiting in this country that much time has been lost." He draws from friend Alexia Webster's photographs (Waiting For Work) as starting reference, painting figures lost in a daily struggle. The simplicity of the project is its highlight, a stark reminder of South Africa's difficult political and social terrain...

A bit of art in the streets of Prishtina | ONUP | Architecture in Kosova

A bit of art in the streets of Prishtina | ONUP | Architecture in Kosova | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

While the urban planning of capital of Kosovo is far from something to admire, young creative minds still believe in making beautiful things happen even in the middle of this mess. Such is the latest project from Pleurat Spahiu, Creative Leader at Ogilvy | Karrota, that brought a little bit of street art in the middle of Prishtina.

A couple of weeks ago the municipality decided to put into use some piles on the sidewalks of the roads that are close to the center, since cars were being parked everywhere and citizens were being forced to walk on the road. A couple of weeks later, a project selected out of the initiative “Street Art – Culture for All”, put some colors on the concrete spheres atop the piles, that resulted with figures with names like Bruce Lee, John Belushi, Madona and some other random names. Because of the spherical shape, Petrit had the possibility to put is talent onto better use and create the cartoon shapes of the above mentioned names...

In the annals of "Fine Art History," graffiti is usually placed squarely outside of the mainstream dialogue. Usually, it’s relegated to a foggy category sometimes called Urban Art--or worse, Urban Contemporary.

Artist Uses Images From Google’s Street View To Create Street Art - DesignTAXI.com

Artist Uses Images From Google’s Street View To Create Street Art - DesignTAXI.com | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Google’s Street View is a helpful tool, but it captures random citizens in compromising situations and uploads their image on the internet for all to see.

Drawing inspiration from these ordinary citizens, Italian street artist Paolo Cirio has started a project called ‘Street Ghosts’, where he prints posters of these people and plasters them in the exact location they were captured.

According to Cirio, he believes that Google is making a profit from its Street View and that these people did not give Google their permission to be photographed.

As an act of ‘defiance’, he mimics Google by printing the images from Street View—taking them without permission to create street art.

“The collection of data that Google and similar corporations have become the material of everyday life, yet their source is the personal information of private individuals,” Cirio explains, “by remixing and reusing this material, I artistically explore the boundaries of ownership and exposure of this publicly displayed, private-held information about our personal lives.”
