I’ve been a fan of NohJColey’s street art for sometime now, but his latest series in north Brooklyn has me so excited. Images of figures with movable body parts that you control with the help of strategically placed wires tell a story of a life filled with false consumer hopes, drug addictions, and getting caught by the cops.
Street art and weather in perfect harmony is a beautiful thing. Handy, then, that these John Wayne ‘paste ups’ have appeared all over London in the midst of a serious frosty spell in the capital which has seen London’s transport grind to a halt due to a lack of gritting (oh the irony).
Pahnl, a street artist from the UK, has been stenciling since 2003: ‘I take huge influence from comics and street signage, but I add my own subversive twist. I aim to make my work interact with its environment’, he says. This stop motion animation, Nowhere Near Here, uses a combination of light with stencils and […]
Check out First and Fifteenth, housing famous Philly street artist, Stephen Powers, aka ESPO. Cornbread, the world’s first notable graffiti artist, used to tag his girlfriend’s name all around the city of Philadelphia, just to get her attention.
Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils, is a talented Portugese artist living in London. His ‘faces’ are quite surreal, whether he displays them on metals, paper or woods. I particularly love his Scratching the Surface urban art series, where he scratches portraits directly onto decaying walls.
Banksy is Howard Hughes, Mr. Brainwash is Charlie Chaplin and this is not a documentary about A list street artists (although they make cameos), this is a moving narrative with a real point of view. Stop talking about it; go see it, then talk about it.
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.
Whether you think it’s a beautiful expression of civil disobedience/public art or a wanton act of vandalism, the cyclists who dumped thirteen gallons of paint at the busy Rosenthaler Platz in Berlin were ballsy, and they definitely made an impact with the passing traffic creating colorful lines all over the road.
This is the work of Luca Sir Vine. You can catch him merrily painting away in Sydney on Newtown Station’s pavement as he randomly sells his work to locals passing by. He’s been selling his work on local streets for the past thirteen years, with prices starting at just $25.
Bortusk Leer sprays cheeky fluro madness on newspapers, which in turn appear on public display around London. In this way, his carefree world of naivety becomes a form of removable graffiti art.
Some people are talented, others are just truly remarkable. German artist Edgar Muller makes these three-dimensional apocalyptic fantasy street art in cities across the world. His work is reminiscent of that of English artist, Julian Beever.
