Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Friday 2 May 2014

Milan-based artist Fra.Biancoshock really knows how to grab your attention. Using the ‘urban jungle as his canvas, the mysterious artist creates site-specific installations that are at times humorous or startling, but always clever and imaginative’. In this street art, old tires are given new life to form Loch Ness Monster scenes in back alley puddles, […]

If you’re a devoted Imgur or Reddit user, you will have noticed an astonishing photo of street art dating back to 2012, showing a bearded giant struggling to get out of a small house. That small house is in Rennes, located in the French region of Bretagne, and the genius behind this mural is MTO.

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Tuesday 4 February 2014

True, we’ve featured Escif before, but clearly the Spanish street artist has created even more unbeatable murals since. Just look at that giant light switch he did in southwestern Poland and the one of the giant door lock in Montreal, Canada.

Big Bang, Big Boom: wall-painted animation by BLU

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Saturday 30 April 2011

Many moons ago, when my hair was longer and my eyes were clearer, I was the editor of Australian pop culture magazine, Riot.

It […]

By Gerry Mak in New Events on Wednesday 25 August 2010

Street artist Gaia has been so prolific here in Baltimore that I initially thought he was from here. Not so. The New York-born wheat-paster is quietly plastering the entire world with his stunning humanimals and stern-looking Native Americans.

New Guest Contributor: Tes One

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in New Events on Friday 21 May 2010

Tampa street artist Tes One will be writing some guest posts for Lost At E Minor over the next week, propping his favourite artists, musicians and more. Tes’ own works are impulsive snapshots, just like the superimposed sensations of a cool, urban trailer. He combines digital graphic elements with the rough language of spray and graffiti art: ‘stenciling meets painting, spray cans meet brushes, digital meets tangible. The result is an explosion of colors and shapes, which merge in unexpected visual harmony’. His new solo art show, Smooth Getaway, is on at Advanced Minority Cubicle Artspace in Vienna between May 27 – July 16.
