Street artist Shepard Fairey and colleague Romeo Trinidad were attacked by two men outside a nightclub in Copenhagen over a mural he recently erected in the city.

Collaborating with the Copenhagen-based V1 gallery, Fairey — best known for designing the the Barack Obama “Hope” poster — installed a mural commemorating the 2007 city-ordered demolition of the iconic Ungdomshuset (Youth House) on Jagtvej 69 — a well-known meeting spot for leftist groups.....

Street Artists Gather in Oslo Show to Support for Victims of Terror Attacks, Human Rights Watch | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

The artists and the organizers, T&J Art Walk, want to make a statement against terrorism, intolerance and hate by supporting Human Rights Watch in its work. They believe that the best way to combat extremism is to promote universal human rights and to counter the intolerance and xenophobia that can give rise to violence and that some use even to try to justify terrorism.

DailyArtFixx.com - A little art, every day.

 

The “academic sculptor” DAL has been dedicated to Urban Art since 2004. He is inspired by the way the material world revolves, how the spiritual world unfolds, life’s emotions and the infinite space around us. He uses a variety of mediums, methods, disciplines and spaces to create his works.

At a first glance, some of his work on walls appear to be painted: giant creatures and parasites in a wire garment jump out of the wall. Only after a second look does one see the entwined sculpture....

This intricate pair of monochrome murals were painted by Paris-based street artist Skio. The level of detail is so amazing, it's hard to believe that the murals were created on a wall, instead of a notebook with a ballpoint pen.

“There are many similarities between Australia and San Francisco: both have famous bridges, internationally established street art cultures and, of course, trams. What is different is our beginnings. Australia’s criminal foundations have seeped into our national persona, Aussies are born with a spirit of rebellion. As the opening lines from our national anthem proclaim, ‘Australians all let us rejoice, for we are Young and Free.’…”

15 Amazing Street Art Photos | Digital Bus Stop

15 Amazing Street Art Photos | Digital Bus Stop | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Some many call it graffiti, others may call it art. I tend to think that if it makes a once completely ordinary-looking wall look extraordinary, it can’t be a bad thing. Because of a little (and by little, I mean pretty popular) Facebook page called StreetArtUtopia (check them out) I learned that street art can take a myriad of different forms, and can be executed using many different types of artistic mediums. A while back, I interviewed Micheal Neff for another site and realized that many artists find inspiration in city streets. Here are 25 amazingstreetart photos that will make you believe thatart truly is everywhere. And that, unless commissioned, there are potentially a lot of people who got tickets for graffiti....

Beyond the Mural: Unconventional Street Art

Beyond the Mural: Unconventional Street Art | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Street art is not your typical graffiti. I love browsing through street art photos and am constantly blown away by the sheer creativity of street artists. The concepts that these artists dream up are endless and always unique, and vary from photo to photo by wide margins. Murals are beautiful and expansive, colorful and emotive. There is something about street art that resonates with people — perhaps it serves as a reminder that they are not the only ones living in a particular city, and that someone cares enough to create something beautiful and thought-provoking for all to see....
