Sheffield-based muralist and artist Phlegm just unveiled this awesome mechanical shark mural for PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans festival in San Diego. The piece is done in Phlegm’s signature black and white illustrative style that often depicts shady masked figures manning the controls of unwieldy machines or contraptions. The Murals for Oceans project involves a collaboration with internationally renowned artists in an attempt to focus attention on major environmental issues involving the ocean. You can see many more pieces by Phlegm spanning the last few months on his blog. (via StreetArtNews)

Artist Jim Bachor (previously) continued his guerrilla effort to remedy Chicago’s pothole problem by creating a number of flower mosaics in streets around the city. Bachor installed four mosaics through this fall while the weather cooperated, but as things get wet and cooler we’ll probably see a bit less of his, uhm, street art. I’m not sure if any of these are still around, but he keeps a list of photos and addresses where each piece was installed. Bachor opens a new exhibition of mosaic art at Packer Schopf Gallery titled “Jentaculum” early next month.

Russian street artist Rustam Qbic (previously) just completed a new 9-story mural in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia for the New City festival. Titled “Blossom” the mural depicts individuals whose heads are literally “blooming” while reading books, an irony not lost on the artist who worked through 11 days of frigid cold and snow to complete the work. The mural is just one of many surreal paintings and walls created by Qbic since we covered his work here last year. You can see more over on his website. (via StreetArtNews)
