I recently stumbled onto the Facebook page of a new wheatpaste artist named Lavalet who has been making some pretty imaginative site-specific pasteups in various locations around France since late last year. Almost all of his pieces interact with their direct surroundings and frequently include props or other three-dimensional objects. You can see more over on his blog, and if you happen to be in the south of France he just opened an exhibition at NUNC ! Grenoble last week.

Swiss artist Remo Lienhard (aka Wes21) has an imagination to kill for. His acrylic and spray paint works are explosively detailed and often depict a sort of dystopian fusion of people and the natural world. Though despite the grittiness and abundance of detail found in each of his works it’s clear he also possesses a keen sense of humor. Lienhard belongs to a collective of graffiti artists and illustrators called Schwarzmaler where you can find much more of his street art and other works. Also don’t miss him over on Facebook. (via street art utopia which has a killer roundup of street art this month)

Update: Wes21 is represented by SOON where you can learn more about his work.

Built as a municipal bathhouse in the late 19th century, Les Bains-Douches would eventually become one of the hottest night clubs in Paris known simply as Les Bains, a destination for the likes of Kate Moss, Mick Jagger, Johnny Depp and even Andy Warhol. Due to some faulty construction in 2010 the building was declared a safety hazard and is now slated for complete renovation in just a few days to pave way for La Société des Bains, a new space that will open in 2014. In the meantime, owner Jean-Pierre Marois turned over the building to 50 street artists commissioned by Magda Danysz Gallery who have been working since January to turn the decaying building into an endless canvas of artwork.

While the entire space will unfortunately remain closed to the public, photographers Stephane Bisseuil and Jérôme Coton were allowed in to shoot many of the artworks in progress. Above is just a small selection, head over to Les Bains “One Day One Artist” page to see much more. (via creative review)

Back in 2009 artist Roa (previously here and here) painted this amazing lenticular street artwork on Curtain Road in London. Depending on the angle of viewing the art shifts between the fuzzy exterior of a rabbit to an illustrated interior of its circulatory system, a trick he used late last year here in Chicago to pretty gruesome effect. You can see much more of Roa’s work over on Flickr which seems to be updated most frequently. (via twisted sifter)

In 2001 artist Peter Gibson began a guerrilla street art campaign to encourage the city of Montreal to build more bike lanes. What began as a project borne of activism eventually became an art project that continues to this day. Assuming the name Roadsworth stating, “where Wordsworth is a poet of words, Roadsworth is a poet of roads,” the artist has cleverly modified roads, sidewalks, parking lots and any other publicly visible asphalt surface he can transform with paint. If you want to learn more, the artist recently took a moment to share some thoughts with My Modern Met and you can see much more of his work on his website.

Update: Colossal reader Roula adds via Facebook: The first image “is a visual translation of ‘nid de poule‘—chicken nest, which is the quebecois expression for potholes.”

Spray Painted Faces Merge in New Graffiti from iNO

This video featuring Athens-based graffiti writer iNO perfectly captures his ability to turn quick gestures with a spray can into something that almost looks as if it was produced with aid of a camera. Many of the artist’s interior and exterior works incorporate the idea of two faces or figures merging, either morphing into each other or growing outwardly. Watch the video above to see it all come together. (via colossal submissions)
