Fun Black and White Murals of Friends and Family by Alex Senna

March 30, 2017

Christopher Jobson

It’s not often that you walk down the street and encounter an artwork that warms your heart or brings a smile to your face, but for Brazilian street artist and muralist Alex Senna, positive emotion seems to be his visual currency. His lanky black and white characters are often found in a variety of hopeful, loving, and positive scenes from a pair of lovers embracing to a family riding a bicycle. To intensify their emotional depth Senna often gives the flat characters broad shadows that stretch out larger-than-life across urban walls. You can check out more of Senna’s work on Instagram.

Cubism and Realism Collide in New Murals and Paintings by ‘Belin’

January 11, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski

Spanish artist Miguel Ángel Belinchón Bujes, or Belin, has long been known in the graffiti world for his photorealistic murals. After a recent trip to Pablo Picasso’s birthplace however, his work has begun to adopt elements of cubism—now producing creative portraits in a style he’s dubbed postneocubismo. His works are often based on loved ones, breaking up elements of their faces in order to recompose eyes, ears, and mouths into distorted configurations.

Although many of his newer works have moved to canvas, he is still very much involved with making work in the public realm, like the above mural he created for last year’s Meeting of Styles’ festival in Cancun, Mexico. You can see more of Belin’s work on his website and Instagram. (via Arrested Motion)

Lotus Blossoms by Faith47 Sprout on the Streets of Goa, India

December 29, 2016

Kate Sierzputowski

South African street artist Faith47 is attracted to the lotus flower because of its strength. It is a plant that must fight through mud and water before it can blossom on top of its high stalk. This ability to find clarity through the murkiness of its surroundings was the inspiration behind her latest series of murals titled Le Petit Mort which she recently finished in Goa, India. You can see footage from the making of the works in this video, as well as further work by Faith47 on her website and Facebook. (via Colossal Submissions)

Italian artist Francesco Camillo Giogino, or Millo (previously here and here), has painted his latest sky-high mural in the heart of Chile. Never Give Up, created in his signature cartoonish style, features a female figure in the forefront clutching the trunk of a tree. The city behind the girl is black and white, causing the eyes to focus most clearly on a single green vine growing from the heart-shaped stump. The work, which aims to express the hope that Millo believes all hold in their hearts, was produced for Hecho En Casa festival this past month. You can see more of his nature-based and murals on his website, and on Facebook.

New Cavernous Murals by German Street Artist ‘1010’

December 8, 2016

1010_16_5

German street artist 1010 (previously here and here) paints murals that seems to disappear within the walls on which they are painted, each work an optical illusion with brightly ringed shapes. The effect is a 3D cavern on a solid surface, produced by 1010 layering 6-10 warm or cool shades on top of a dark background or center. He has recently applied this technique across the globe, including a mural for the Backside Gallery in Marseille, France and a work on a large public building for this year’s POW WOW Hawaii Festival in Honolulu. You can see more of his recent pieces on his Facebook and Instagram.
