Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, he not only paints and illustrates but beautifies the city with […]
Imagine creating a photo of Macau, China’s skyline one pixel at a time. Sounds tedious, right? But that’s exactly what Toronto-based Cube Works Studio did when they created these murals. 85,794 rubik’s cubes were arranged as if they were pixels to create these mind blowing designs. It only took a few months to construct this […]

Being a street artist himself in Chicago, Chris Silva loves to collaborate with people using found objects and colorful murals to create amazing art that reflects its urban setting.

Seemingly serving as a coincidental retrospective, the exhibition showcases the range of Os Gemeos’ style, from tagging to muralling. Overwhelming, interactive and larger than life, the twins extract images from their canvases and turn them back into tactile reality, continuously causing every Os Gemeos show to become the best kind of circus.
If you’re going to have a giant gas tank sitting around, why not decorate it? These Japanese gas companies have the right idea. They turned their otherwise drab gas tanks into fun and colorful murals. I think the Kirby ones are pretty darn clever.
I’d like to think that I’ve grown out of wetting myself in excitement, but Lewis Campbell’s beautiful and nihilistic Lost Monkey artwork caught me by surprise.
