Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Tuesday 27 May 2014

We don’t know much about Maldito Juanito, except that he’s from Geneva and does some really fantastic macabre illustrations which he then unleashes on the streets by urban wheatpasting. His Tumblr is filled with loads of pictures of his works which are all quite something. He somehow manages to pull off rawness in a most […]

Curious octopus-elephant street mural boasts amazing details

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Saturday 27 July 2013

What a brilliant idea by Puerto Rican artist Alexis Diaz: a curious mash-up of an elephant and an octopus as a street mural, with its trunk as one of the octopus arms. Diaz apparently took an entire week at Hanbury Street off Brick Lane, London, to complete the work with tiny little brushstrokes. Sure beats going to the zoo and imagining hybrids animals that don’t exist.

Hardware store owner David Goldberg found a creative way to put his old, outdated doorknob collection to good use. He created a mural of Van Gogh’s famous ‘Starry Night’ out of hundreds of his unused doorknobs instead of selling them for scrap metal. Goldberg’s mural can be found in his hometown of Bethesda, Maryland.

Shepard Fairey’s latest mural project

Ron English Reader Find

By Ron English in New Art on Tuesday 16 October 2012

I was with Shepard Fairey this summer creating art for The London Pleasure Gardens.

Most talk about Shepard had been about his celebrity or his public foibles eclipsing his artwork.

Giant new LA mural by art collective Cyrcle

Carlos Gonzalez Reader Find

By Carlos Gonzalez in New Art on Thursday 27 September 2012

The Los Angeles art collective known as Cyrcle just finished their latest mural, which could possibly be one of LA’s biggest murals. Standing at 11k square feet, the project titled Magic Is Real sits on the streets of Echo Park and it’s a precursor for their second solo show taking place in mid-November. The mural took about a month to complete and it combines Cyrcle’s clean aesthetic with references to the ouroboros, microscopic organisms, and even a nod to the infinity sign which the group have utilized in previous work. So if you happen to be around the Los Angeles area, check out this mural, and in the meantime, take a look at the photos shot by theonepointeight.
