French artist Philippe Baudelocque is known for his street murals of animals created with impermenant mediums like chalk or white oil pastels. Each animal is created with a mosaic of delicate line work in the form of organic and geometric patterns that merge to form each piece. Baudelocque most recently participated in the ongoing BergeStreet art event along the banks of the Seine in Paris where he drew the rhinocerous pieces above. You can see much more over on his website. (via Arrested Motion)

After a brief hiatus from his whirlwind New York residency last October, Banksy emerged with at least two new pieces over the weekend. The first depicts a trio of shady government officials crowding around a phone booth using analog recording devices to eavesdrop on conversations. That piece popped up in Cheltenham, a borough of Gloucestershire, England which is not coincidentally home of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The second piece which depicts two lovers basking in the light of their mobile devices just appeared on Banksy’s website and is also presumably in the UK.

If you’re trying to find the globe-trotting Spanish street artist Aryz, you’ll have to look up. Because in whatever city he happens to be in, the prominent artist will typically be hoisted 100ft above street level converting large building facades into public canvases. And buildings aren’t the only thing he’s climbed. At just 25 years of age, Aryz (pronounced “Areez”) has risen to be amongst the top ranks of world-renowned street artists like Banksy and ROA.

Aryz was born in Palo Alto but moved back to Spain when he was just three. He began painting (in the form of graffiti) as a teenager, and his style evolved – in part, from his art studies in college – to what it is today. Bones are a recurring motif in the artist’s work, and so are skin-like muted colors. “I feel it’s really aggressive when you paint in a public space, so I don’t really want to play with bright colors,” said Aryz. “It would be too much.”

Have a look at some of his latest pieces, which includes the artist’s most latest: “Overprotection,” painted in late March, on a large industrial building in Linz, Austria. You can follow the artist on Facebook or Instagram.

Over the last year artist Blu has dropped a number of killer murals in several Italian cities, most recently in Niscemi (top) where he created a three-story piece depicting a military figure playing a weaponized xylophone. Despite the extreme visual density present in Blu’s latest works, it’s impossible to miss his perspective on contemporary society from his skewering of religion and consumerism to his distaste for war and injustice. The last images shown here are parts of a massive mural painted last August in Messina, Italy—you really need to see the piece in its entirety to grasp it fully.

If you want to learn more about the context behind all of these pieces, StreetArtNews has you covered.

After 7 long months of obsessively scribbling away on a large wall, artist Sean Sullivan “threw in the towel,” in part because he had exceeded his allotted time period by 4 months! The resulting mural was “Grand Pale Maw,” an expansive wall drawing that encompassed the entire rear corridor space of LACE in LA. Grand Pale Maw—Sullivan’s first large scale mural—was on display only through January 2012 but thanks to these photos documenting the process we can still ogle over them. (via Lost at E Minor)

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)

I’m completely in love with these bicycle murals from Argentinian artist Mart who began painting on the streets of Buenos Aires in the 1990s at the tender age of 12. His whimsical imagination is expressed through vibrant colors and stunning line work that flows freely from cans of spray paint. You can see much more of his work on Flickr, and read more about him over on Graffitimundo.

When looking at these murals by Brisbane artist Fintan Magee they seem almost impossible to contain. Literally dripping with color, his bold images often bleed off the canvas and spill onto the street or sidewalk, fully utilizing every available surface, as if maybe even that isn’t enough. Via Analogue/Digital:

Moving away from traditional graffiti in recent years his guerilla murals often inhabit the isolated, abandoned and broken corners of the city. Mixing surreal and figurative imagery his paintings are deeply integrated with the urban environment and explore themes of waste, consumption, loss and transition and contain a sentimentality and softness influenced by children’s books.

His most recent piece (top) was just completed in Toowoomba, a city in South-East Queensland, Australia. You can see much more of his work on his website, and on Instagram. (via StreetArtNews)
