Bird Street Art on the Streets of Brazil by L7m

June 13, 2013

I’m enjoying these spray painted birds by Brazilian artist L7m. The mix of realism that morphs into more frenetic strokes of spray paint is really fun. Some of the photos you see here were taken on the streets, while others are works on canvas. See much more over on Facebook. (via street art utopia)

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)

Italian graffiti writer, painter and sculptor Manuel Di Rita (aka Peeta) lives and works in Venice where since 2000 he has risen to international fame for his unique 3D graffiti style. Using a variety of shading, gradients and shadows his work often appears to be hovering just off the surface on which it is painted. Peeta not only creates work in public spaces but also creates similar figures with paint on cavas as well as sculptures. Above is a mixture of artworks both old and new, and you can see much more over on Flickr and at Ayden Gallery.

I’m really enjoying the street art and paintings of Brazilian artist DMS (Davi De Melo Santos) whose work I find to be humorous, hopeful, and extremely inventive. Go get lost in his paintings, murals, and this fun series of faces. (via moon83)

The Animated 'GIF-iti' of INSA

December 10, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Fine artist and designer INSA creates elaborately painted walls that are photographed in sequence to create these amazing, psychedelic animated gifs. His latest piece (top 3 images) is a collaboration with artist Stanley Donwood called Hollywood Dooom to help celebrate the release of a new album for Atoms for Peace, AMOK, for which Donwood did the album artwork. INSA painted the entire exterior of XL Recordings four times to create the frames for the animation. Of the work he says:

My challenge was to take two very static items, a beautiful lino-cut and a less beautiful box of a building, and bring them to life. After a week of sweating in the Los Angeles late summer sun re-painting the whole building several times I got there. Animated as a continuous GIF it may only live online but some would argue that is where most now live there lives…

You can see more of INSA’s gif work and other pieces on his blog. (via the creator’s project)

Stencils by C215

November 9, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Prolific street artist C215 (previously) has been making new work seemingly all over Europe lately with stops in Lisbon, Barcelona, Dublin, London, and elsewhere. His vibrant stencil works rely on carefully layered fields of color and texture making each piece seem like it’s practically illuminated from behind. You can explore his Flickr page for many more works, and he opens a solo show at Montana Gallery in Barcelona on December 13th.
