A Global Art Project Brings Paintings of Anonymous Figures out of Museums and onto the Streets
Gingerina
23 dec 2015 10:58

While visiting the Louvre last year, artist and filmmaker Julien de Casabianca was struck by an Ingres painting of a female prisoner tucked unceremoniously into a corner of the museum. He suddenly had an idea: what if he could somehow free her—both figuratively and literally—by reproducing her figure on a public street. With that single act, the Outings Project was born.

104-year-old great-grandmother Grace Brett just might be the oldest street artist in the world. She yarn-bombed her town with the help of the Souter Stormers, a secretive group of ‘yarnstormers’ that recently yarn-bombed 46 landmarks in the Scottish county of Borders.

Graffiti and street art have both often served to deepen the rift of misunderstanding between young and old, but there’s one art organization in Lisbon, Portugal that’s working to change that. LATA 65 works to destroy age stereotypes and turn senior citizens into street artists by providing them with spray paint cans, masks and gloves and finding them free spots in the city to tag up and paint!

Slinkachu is an artist who has been "abandoning little people on the street since 2006." What he does is search the streets of London for unassuming locations in which to hide tiny, little sculptures. If you've spent any time in the U.K. capital in the past ten year, there's a chance you've walked right by his art without even noticing.

Seth Globepainter's Murals of Children Immersed in Colorful Galaxies

30 mar 2015 14:47

Julien Seth Malland’s murals revive crumbling walls with vibrant images of children immersed in galaxies of color. The Paris-based artist, who also goes by the pseudonym Seth Globepainter, adds depth to flat, brick-and-plaster walls with a palette of vibrant hues that seem inspired by a crayon box. These rainbow splashes are contrasted by plain drawings of children that look like they could have been sketched with a pencil. The murals are both playful and thoughtful, inspiring an...

Like a new modern version of invisible ink, superhydrophobic coatings can also be used to create hidden street art that stays invisible until it gets wet. Peregrine Chuch, a Seattle-based street artist, created a series of public works of street art called Rainworks using the same sort of hydrophobic coatings.

Impressive 3D Street Art Created with Recycled Materials
Katarina
21 nov 2014 11:35

Portuguese street artist Artur Bordalo, aka Bordalo II, uses mixed media to create his own interpretations of the urban landscape and environment. He often composes his works using various found items that he merges together into beautiful forms. In that sense, his street art is unique because it appears slightly three-dimensional and is presented in surprisingly tactile formations.

Street Art Project Spreads 4,000 Blue Butterflies Throughout the World

Artist Tasha Lewis has started a global street art project where she will create 4,000 magnetic butterflies and then send them in packs of 400 to 10 groups around the world. In total, the swarms of butterflies will travel to 100 different homes, hopefully landing in all seven continents. Born from the fact that, as an individual artist living in New York City, she would not be able to travel as much as she would like, she hopes this installation will spread far and wide. Each of the ten...

Mademoiselle Maurice is a French street artist whose creations are unlike anything you've ever seen. While most artists use spray paint to bring color to the walls and sidewalks of cities, she spends days folding and assembling origami into colorful creations in urban areas.

Pulling the world apart, one animal at a time
Helen
23 aug 2013 11:40

The street artist going by the name of Nychos didn’t have what we’d call a ‘normal’ upbringing. He was born into an Austrian hunting family in South Africa and spent much of his childhood seeing things which many ‘normal’ people would consider cruel or even brutal. For Nychos though, it was a fascinating world. At seven he was bitten by a boar while he was playing in the forest close to home. Just a little while later he had boar meat for lunch. In another instance he saw a dead baby lamb...

Street Artist Turns Found Garbage Into Quirky Characters
Helen
23 aug 2013 11:29

Street artist Francisco de Pájaro (aka “Art Is Trash”) takes piles of garbage found on the street and turns it into quirky art by painting faces and arranging it in humorous ways. The Spanish-born artist recently hit the streets of London and created a series with that city’s trash. Global Street Art’s James Buxton recently interviewed Pájaro for Société Perrier and quotes him, “We consume a lot, and rubbish is part of that, it’s people wasting things. There’s a romantic aspect, somebody’s...
