Here’s a Dallas native that completely crushes everywhere he goes, from Dallas to Detroit. He doesnt believe in one handed fills. It’s always two hands and a fat cap.
Some of the most startling and original images seen on the streets of Santiago, Chile, are the anthropomorphic creatures of artist Basco Vazko. These surreal creatures seem to have lept out of the story of children’s books mixed and cut-up with medical textbook imagery. One of Basco’s strengths is how he uses the weathered walls not as an accidental background for his work but as integral part of the image.
Tattoo/graffiti artist Lango is very much rooted in the traditions of his mediums, but he puts some really and left-field detail, texture, and surrealism into them that make his work truly stunning.
Dal East is a diamond in the rough. When I first took notice of his work, I suspected a one-off piece of art, but digging deeper, an impressive pattern emerged. He has travelled widely and left his unique visual mark across numerous cities. His style is a unique one: loose sketches that are tightened into lit wireframes often echoing nature, giving the work a timeless almost mythological feel.
Zeh Palito paints on both canvas and the streets, infusing his world with a fun, playful energy. Palito’s unicorns find themselves well within the composition. They know where the party is and they know how to dance.
In the world of street art, often dominated by alpha-male posturing and tiresome pseudo-political satire, Faith47 injects a tender visual poetry. Often seen in the most destitute of environments, her work comes across as a beacon of healing where political systems so often have failed to uplift. This is conscience through art where it is needed most: in the trenches.
Fat Cap is an excellent site for the latest and greatest in graffiti and street art. From pictures to interviews, and even a member site that you can upload your work to, this site is pure crack for anyone that loves art.
Artist Matt W. Moore recently ran an exhibit in Cincinnati showing off his very dope vector like canvas paintings. What’s really ill to me is that the medium used here is spray paint, and you get to see him at work doing an entire wall in this style. Really clean, really fresh.
I love the bold colours and cheeky gaping aesthetic in the work of Sydney-based artist and designer, Finlay Duggan. She creates awesome masks imbued with wide-eyed menace, and her illustration work wouldn’t be out of place plastered across the giant walls of a disused Brooklyn factory. Respect.
Blek Le Rat did what Banksy did twenty years before Banksy did. And that’s according to Banksy himself. Now creatives around the world have the chance to be flown to Berlin to take part in a live stencil art session with him. Upload a JPEG of your own stencil art to Hugo Create to take part.
It’s a little hard to keep up with the work of one of New York’s coolest underground artists, ArtIsEpic, considering his current focus doesn’t include exhibiting in galleries. Rather, Fernando Leon’s motive is to keep on creating. The painter has generated a lot of buzz for his appealing urban clothing apparel designs, but his private art collection are the real gems that most people aren’t aware of.
