Cartoony Mural Depicts Man Obsessing over Facebook Likes street art social media murals humor Facebook

There’s plenty of social commentary in this new mural titled ‘Like a Vision‘ from Mister Thoms (previously). The piece appeared somewhere in Ferentino, Italy last week and depicts a man obsessed with the feedback from Facebook likes, rendered in Mister Thoms’ signature illustrative style. Please revel in the irony of liking anything to do with this. (via StreetArtNews, Laughing Squid)

Vancouver-based artist Fiona Tang creates large-scale murals of animals using charcoal, chalk pastel, and acrylic on paper that at first glance appear 3D. Tang makes use of a technique called trompe l’oeil where shadows and perspective within the two dimensional drawing are used to trick the viewer into thinking the piece is three dimensional. Tang recently graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and you can see more of her work over on Facebook. (via Juxtapoz, My Modern Met)

Artist Ernest Zacharevic (previously) has been quite busy the last few months with stops in Italy and locations around Malaysia where he just finished a month-long residency in Ipoh. He completed several large murals depicting locals and their way of life, but also painted a few of his signature pieces that humorously depict children or animals interacting with elements of buildings or other nearby objects. Above is a collection of pieces stretching back to December of 2013, but for more of his recent work in Malaysia head over to Arrested Motion.

The Wall Art Project is a non-profit organization based in Tokyo who organizes Wall Art Festival (WAF), an initiative to bring art into schools in places like India and Tibet. The Japanese artist Yusuke Asai, who paints with basically anything he can get his hands on (tape, pens, leaves, dust and mud…) was asked to travel to the Niranjana School in Bihar (east India) to create a mural on the walls of a classroom.

You can only imagine the surprise when Asai unveiled a sprawling, immersive mural titled “Earth Painting; The Forest of Vows.” To create the piece, Asai sourced only locally available materials which included 7 different types of soil, cow dung, water and straw. Unfortunately the installation wasn’t permanent and was washed away after several months, but we do have these photos to document the art. (syndicated from Spoon & Tamago)

Brazilian graffiti artists Os Gemeos recently partnered up with GOL Airlines to paint this gargantuan mural on the fusalage of a Boeing 737 that will be used to carry Brazil’s team during the World Cup. The duo used some 1,200 cans of spray paint to depict a crowd of fans in their signature vibrant yellow which coincidentally is the same color used by the Brazilian team. Completed in only a week, the plane first flew today and will remain in use for at least another two years after use by the team. See many more photos over on Arrested Motion.
