Colourful street art and b&w ink drawings by Max Rock

Jake Sheridan Contributor

By Jake Sheridan in New Art on Thursday 14 November 2013

Max Rock makes art. Somewhere between colourful street art and exceptional black and white ink drawings, lies his work. It’s serious, it’s cartoony, it’s playful, it’s aggressive. It’s all of these things and more. And it rocks.

Street Storm: short film features artist Anthony Garratt

Anthony Garratt Reader Find

By Anthony Garratt in Video on Tuesday 5 November 2013

I’m known as a gallery artist – one who paints for gallery shows – and my style is expressionist. I wanted to take a style which is not inherently graffiti into the streets and see if I could apply the same style to a large, urban space. The piece was not planned and painted on […]

Street art with a decaying twist: photos by Charlene Weisler

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in New Art on Tuesday 29 October 2013

Charlene Weisler’s urban photography is inspired by the transience and impermanence of street art. Concentrating on the evolving nature of layered, decaying graffiti, Weisler’s art captures a timeline of competing efforts and messages eroded by weather and time. Notably, the photographs are “as-is” – as she finds them on the streets – and are not […]

Food graffiti of brand logos made with their products

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Tuesday 29 October 2013

Haha, this is hilarious. Leave no mess, consume what you produce. Food graffiti street artist Dorota Pankowska armed herself with substances like Nutella, Cheez Whiz and Miracle Whip, and used these to stencil the iconic brand logos of these very condiments. It started when she started thinking about expressing her love for Nutella ‘by putting the logo around the city, at which point I asked myself, Why not actually make it out of the stuff?’. Way cool.

This website is dedicated to helping you steal Banksy’s artwork

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in Cool Websites on Friday 25 October 2013

Why pay $60 for a Banksy (fake or not fake) when you can steal it? After all, Pablo Picasso said that, ‘good artists copy, great artists steal’. Well, at least that’s what the guys over at stealbanksy.com believe. The site tracks all the Banksy artworks across the five boroughs and gives us the status/condition they are in.

Jack Douglas: Illustrator, street artist, tattooist

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in New Illustration on Friday 25 October 2013

Brandishing an arsenal of colour and mind bending subjects all smacked together with the cuteness of a Hanna-Barbera cartoon Jack Douglas appears to be onto something. Like Ren and Stimpy meets Where the Wild Things Are, he caresses form, representing animals, characterized innate objects and spews off-beat colour throughout. Launching the image into a Technicolor […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Wednesday 9 October 2013

Well, somewhat. We’ve just found out that a bus stop inspired by the iconic scene of Totoro showing up at one in Hayao Miyazaki’s anime classic My Neighbor Totoro, actually exists in Saikai City, Nagasaki, including a lifelike statue of the creature. The bus stop serviced by real buses too. If you’re waiting for the […]

Giants walk the street of Poland: extraordinary street art by Natalii Rak

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Wednesday 2 October 2013

This rosy-cheeked little maid with her trusty watering can is the stuff of legends and fairytales. Her massive scale adds a little whimsy to the street of Białystok, Poland as she attempts to water a full grown tree as if it were a delicate flower. Painted by  Natalii Rak at Folk on the Street, the sheer size of the mural required Rak to use a hydraulic lift platform. This is some serious art that isn’t for the faint of heart!

Banksy announces a month long takeover of the walls of New York

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 2 October 2013

That mysterious dark lord of the street art world, Banksy, has struck again, in his typically cryptic, enigmatic way. He’s been expertly fueling the flames of innuendo via his website of late, posting new work in LA and New York and alluding to a possible uninvited (but much appreciated) takeover of the walls of Manhattan with the accompanying statement: ‘Better Out Than In. An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.

This is the sort of amateur graffiti you find on bathroom stalls. Updated every Friday with new content, Pictures of Walls is a curated collection of everyday scribbles and scrawling found around bathrooms, interstates, construction sights, urban alleys, and the like. They’re mostly improvisation pieces, a real stream of consciousness for society in general.
