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.

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!

An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.
