Before his piece for the Galore festival, the Spanish street artist Aryz travelled an hour away from Copenhagen to reach Næstved, a town that lies on the island of Zealand. The piece can be seen on Farimagsvej 36 - opposite to the old post office close to Næstved Station - and is a part of Næstved Youth School of Art and decoration project “Næstved Art City”. I’ve also been told that Aryz has painted on various mdf panels while he was in the town and those works will be showed in the waiting room at the Station and around the city this autumn.
I love graffiti. I love street art. There is often debate about whether or not graffiti can be considered art, it’s just mess, it’s just vandalism. With these works by Alice there really is no debate. This is art, and this is beautiful. You can check out her full series of wall art here, in the meantime, check out our favorite 12 photographs of Alice’s amazing art.
In collaboration with Amnesty International and "Color Revolution", A.Signl from the Captain Borderline crew recently completed this mural in Cologne, Germany to point out the human rights violations in China. The interesting mural is reminiscent of a photo that was taken during the massacre at the Tiananmen Square in 1989. If you are in the neighbourhood, this new mural can be seen on Vogelsanger Str. 283 in Cologne.
As our friends at CFYE stated earlier: “French street artists Ella & Pitr have the most romantic story! She used to be a comedian, he a graffiti writer. They met each other in the streets of St. Etienne (France) while doing paste-ups. Now isn’t that just lovely coincidence? Their street art works consistst out of paste-ups that are subtile, yet hold a whole lot of emotion and humanity.”
What few people know is that they have hit Belgium a couple of weeks ago (thank you Yves Calomme for the lead on this story):
Unique street art can be found in urban centers around the world but one nation in particular stands out for its beautiful and thought-provoking offerings: France. Among other things, the French are renowned for their artistic sensibilities and the streets of its biggest cities prove that this is no less true in modern times than it has been throughout history.
Whether you need inspiration and something to get your creative juices flowing or you simply appreciate the artistic bent of the minds around you, take a look at these 15 awesome examples of French street art (for more French artworks, please refer to France Magazine):
Standing four stories high, this new large-scale mural by UK-based street artist Phlegm was recently completed for the Bloop Festival in Ibiza, Spain. Two mechanical arms are seen operating each other, with a little help from the…
‘Les Machines de l’île’ which means in English the machine of island, is an unprecedented artistic project born from the imaginations of François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice, it is a blend of the invented worlds of Jules Verne, the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci, and the industrial history of Nantes, on the exceptional site of the former shipyards.
A grandmother's less-than-artistic attempt to restore a century-old church fresco has turned into an unlikely art sensation, with thousands of people signing an online petition to save her questionable handiwork.
Eighty-one-year-old Cecilia Gimenez noticed that an oil painting of Jesus Christ on the wall of her local church near Zaragoza, in north-eastern Spain, was deteriorating and decided to take it upon herself to fix the 120-year-old fresco.
The problem is that now she has meddled with the head and, clearly, she has destroyed the painting.
But the pensioner's shocking DIY restoration job left Jesus, who was wearing a crown of thorns and gazing sorrowfully towards heaven, looking more like a pale monkey with a half beard. Some have labelled it the worst art restoration of all time, while the BBC described the end result as looking like "a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic"....
Basking in the warm glow of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, the “See No Evil” festival unabashedly celebrated Street Art in Bristol with thousands of fans thronging through the street while London was scurrying to deal with the threat of the unofficial Street Art of the Olympic kind.
In its second year, the one-week festival invited about 40 Street Artists from around the globe to hit up the walls of one long street while visitors traveled great distances to watch. In yet another sign of the full emergence of this first global art form, people witnessed live painting day and night, took photos, visited pop up galleries, attended graffiti workshops, danced to live music on six stages, and ate huge mountains of food at what organizers called a “New York Style” block party....
While the colonial buildings in Panama City’s San Felipe neighborhood (also called Casco Viejo) are being restored at a frenzied pace, street artists have been exercising their own method of beautifying the remaining surfaces.
In March of 2012, Urban Heartbeat, a traveling public art project organized by German Jim Avignon, Nicaraguan Alicia Zamora, and Mexican Holger Beier, visited Panama, where they worked with a dozen Panamanian artists to paint the walls surrounding San Felipe’s open-air basketball court. Along with the neighborhood’s temporary construction barriers, abandoned lots, and garbage bins, the court now wears the work of the city's street artists.
