Here’s a collection of murals and canvases from street artist L7m (previously) who paints interpretations of birds that morph from realistic into more abstract strokes of spray paint and explosions of color. Included here are a number of pieces from Spain, Portugal, and his native Brazil over the last few months. You can see much more here.

No matter how many times I stop to consider artworks by Parisian street artist C215 (previously) I’m left wondering just how he pulls it off. The texture, the color, the detail, all executed with stencils and spray paint on any available surface. C215 says that he frequently portrays “things and people that society aims at keeping hidden: homeless people, smokers, street kids, bench lovers for example,” though one of his favorite muses is his daughter Nina who has appeared in numerous portraits over the years. He also sneaks in references to pop culture, most notably one of the best tributes to Robin Williams I’ve seen yet.

Collected here are a number of pieces from the last year or so, you can see more on Flickr and Facebook. A retrospective of his work opens at Opera Gallery in Paris in October.

Earlier this month the renown graffiti duo Pichi & Avo traveled to Werchter, Belgium to create a large, site-specific installation for the North West Walls Street Art Festival. The event was curated by Belgium artist Arne Quinze, who created a stacked structure of numerous shipping containers and gave the Spanish artists creative freedom over the large, architectural canvas. The result is a radiant explosion of unrestrained spray art featuring their trademark style of Greek gods and lucid splashes of Mediterranean colors, all against a backdrop of graffiti. “When they work together they create breathtaking figurative detail and quality,” said Quinze. “Their work is very striking and always commands the spectator’s full attention.” Although the festival is now over, the Greek gods with all their might and glory still stand.

Google’s Street View, made possible by their custom-designed panoramic camera, has become the eyes of streets large and small in almost every major city. So it makes perfect sense that they’re now pointing their panoramic lenses to the walls around the world by adding street art to their portfolio. Earlier this week Google announced the launch of their Street Art Project, a new initiative to document and preserve the often transient nature of street art. The project launched with over 5,000 high resolution images including work that no longer exists, like the 5Pointz murals in Long Island City or the walls of the Tour Paris 13. (via Laughing Squid)

Fine artist and designer INSA (previously) continues creating his signature animated “GIF-iti” pieces in locations around the world. Each mural is painted and photographed in sequence to create up to 8 individual layers (or frames) which are then animated into what you see here, a process than can take several days. In 2013 INSA also had the opportunity to travel to Kubuneh Village in Gambia where he was invited to create several of his works on local structures as part of the Wide Open Walls project.

Montreal based A’shop crew is an artist-run production company that creates graffiti murals, street art, and other public art displays. Most of their work is heavily influenced by graffiti but has also found inspiration elsewhere like their 2011 piece titled Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (top) that borrows from the art nouveau style of Alphonse Mucha. You can see more of their work on Facebook and over on the website. (via Oddity Central)

Right before the imminent demolition of a massive warehouse in Brisbane, street artists Sofles (previously), Fintan Magee, Treas, and Quench had the opportunity to go wild. The four artists cover almost every inch of wall space with a seemingly unlimited amount of paint in this timelapse shot by Selina Miles. (via Neatorama, thnx Kat!)
