Stencils, tags, paste-ups, and vibrant strokes sprayed intensely across underground walls are a common city scene. Graffiti is the epitome of urban art and culture.

Denimu Contributor

The Hive Apartments is the first in a series of Hip Hop buildings designed by ITN Architects. It is a joint development by the architect Zvi Belling and ‘Prowla’ of the Rock Da City graffiti crew. Prowla’s design, which spells out ‘Hive’, is constructed in concrete to make the graffiti relief façade complete with arrows, swooshes and drips that will see any council worker have major problems to try and clean it away. Result. An ephemeral art, made permanent.

By Olgica Terzic in New Art on Wednesday 23 May 2012

MAD C is an amazing German graffiti artist with a brutal style of street letters. You probably couldn’t guess that MAD C is female. And the best thing is that, everyone expects female artists to make cute stuff, but MAD C isn’t that kind of artist. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I found her Vimeo videos on […]

Illustration and design work by Mat Miller

Mat Miller Reader Find

By Mat Miller in New Design on Monday 30 April 2012

I’m a freelance illustrator and designer from the UK working in the realms of vector illustration, photo montage and manipulation, and mixed media. My work is influenced by contemporary graffiti and lowbrow art, along with almost anything from the natural world. As well as the great outdoors, I gain inspiration from the more bizarre world of humans. Walking around antiques shops is a favourite. It’s like a sensory overload a lot of the time.

The big map of Buenos Aires that I have is covered in squiggly yellow highlighter lines marking the streets that Annette and I have walked.
