Artist Candy Chang has teamed up with the Chicago Urban Art Society and youth-run art gallery Good News Only to bring her interactive public art project Before I Die (previously) to various Chicago neighborhoods. Passersby are confronted with a spray painted canvas bearing the repeated prompt “Before I die…” and can use provided chalk to complete the sentence, creating a public space for spontaneously shared dreams, hopes, fears and aspirations. The piece was installed yesterday in Edgewater and will be making stops in Pilsen, Wicker Park, Chinatown and elsewhere. You can follow the works progress at Before I Die Chi, and if you have a site where the piece can be installed you should get in touch.

Update: Wow, just two days later:

A number of jaw-dropping stencil works from the past few months by French artist Christian Guémy aka C215 seen on the streets of Barcelona and Berlin. C215 has been an active street artist for over 20 years, his first stencils going up around 2006 and according to Street Art London his daughter is now following in his footsteps making her own 2 layer stencils. See much more on Flickr. (via antonia schulz)

Street Art Utopia just posted an enormous collection of work by street artist Sam3 spanning the last few years but includes a number of pieces I’d never seen before. If you like what you see, also check out his blog and maybe pickup some stuff in his shop. (via street art utopia)

Update: He also made this fun stop motion video.

In his Face of the City series, Toronto-based artist Dan Bergeron (aka Fauxreel) examines the identity of cities by juxtaposing the “abrasive charm found in the distressed surfaces of modern cities with the intimate familiarity of the prominent features of the human face”. Love the killer placement of that first paste-up. See many more portraits via his website. (via juxtapoz)

Poster Cred is an ongoing project by Seattle-based designer Joseph King that attempts to poke fun of the implicit credibility suggested by designers who photograph themselves holding posters for marketing purposes. You can participate in the project by requesting stickers via the Poster Cred page, and photos of the stickers in action have come back from all over the world. Definitely see the entire gallery, some of these are pretty fun. (via lustik)

I’ve seen a few photos of works by street artist Nomerz floating around for the past year or so and realized it was time to do a proper feature on him here. With a double dose of wit and color Nomerz transforms derelict buildings, towers, and crumbling urban spaces into whimsical, quirky faces in locations around Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. Skip to 0:45 in the video above to watch him create one of his recent pieces, The Fire in the Eyes. (via inspire me now)

This past September photographer Wittner Fabrice (previously) had the opportunity to visit Vietnam where he managed to execute a number of his unique light stencils in various locations around the country. Keep in mind these are not digital, but rather long-exposure photos created with lights shone through large cut stencils. Though I really enjoyed Wittner’s previous light paintings commemorating the Christchurch earthquake, the picturesque backdrops of Vietnam as well as a clear improvement in technique make these even more special. See much more of the project here.

Some really clever work by street artist Pasha183 out of Russia. I love his playful interaction with urban surroundings, turning common structures like bridges, walls, and street lamps into places for art. See some other great pieces over on Street Art Utopia.
