Here’s a number of new pieces from last year or so by artist Pablo S. Herrero (previously), almost all of which are collaborations with either David de la Mano or E1000. The artist was most recently in Gaeta, Italy where he completed the piece at top with E1000 for the Memorie Urbane Street Art Festival. (via Street Art News)

Fine artist and designer INSA (previously) continues creating his signature animated “GIF-iti” pieces in locations around the world. Each mural is painted and photographed in sequence to create up to 8 individual layers (or frames) which are then animated into what you see here, a process than can take several days. In 2013 INSA also had the opportunity to travel to Kubuneh Village in Gambia where he was invited to create several of his works on local structures as part of the Wide Open Walls project.

The Subtractive Canvases and Street Art of Pejac

May 13, 2014

Christopher Jobson

Equally versatile in medium, canvas, and subject matter, Spanish artist Pejac seems comfortable working on the smallest drawing to the largest outdoor mural. While his ideas and motivations are often crystal clear, it is his minimalism and subtractive techniques that make his work truly stand out. His figures are often rendered only in silhouette or fine lines and familiar patterns like bricks or the folds of the human brain are transformed into flocks of birds or the branches of trees.

You can see much more of his work on Facebook and learn a bit more over on Arrested Motion.

French artist Philippe Baudelocque is known for his street murals of animals created with impermenant mediums like chalk or white oil pastels. Each animal is created with a mosaic of delicate line work in the form of organic and geometric patterns that merge to form each piece. Baudelocque most recently participated in the ongoing BergeStreet art event along the banks of the Seine in Paris where he drew the rhinocerous pieces above. You can see much more over on his website. (via Arrested Motion)

After a brief hiatus from his whirlwind New York residency last October, Banksy emerged with at least two new pieces over the weekend. The first depicts a trio of shady government officials crowding around a phone booth using analog recording devices to eavesdrop on conversations. That piece popped up in Cheltenham, a borough of Gloucestershire, England which is not coincidentally home of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The second piece which depicts two lovers basking in the light of their mobile devices just appeared on Banksy’s website and is also presumably in the UK.

If you’re trying to find the globe-trotting Spanish street artist Aryz, you’ll have to look up. Because in whatever city he happens to be in, the prominent artist will typically be hoisted 100ft above street level converting large building facades into public canvases. And buildings aren’t the only thing he’s climbed. At just 25 years of age, Aryz (pronounced “Areez”) has risen to be amongst the top ranks of world-renowned street artists like Banksy and ROA.

Aryz was born in Palo Alto but moved back to Spain when he was just three. He began painting (in the form of graffiti) as a teenager, and his style evolved – in part, from his art studies in college – to what it is today. Bones are a recurring motif in the artist’s work, and so are skin-like muted colors. “I feel it’s really aggressive when you paint in a public space, so I don’t really want to play with bright colors,” said Aryz. “It would be too much.”

Have a look at some of his latest pieces, which includes the artist’s most latest: “Overprotection,” painted in late March, on a large industrial building in Linz, Austria. You can follow the artist on Facebook or Instagram.
