Smithe One – New Mural in Mexico City

Mexican artist Smithe One just finished this massive mural, commissioned by the Mexican Institute of Youth (INJUVE) in Metro Salto del Agua which is a metro (subway) station located in the Cuauhtémoc borough in Mexico City.

Well known for his male characters, this piece is a milestone of his career and one of Smithe’s biggest murals located in his hometown. “Ella” is the title of the piece, which means “She” and portrayed the side face of a lady as a homage to all the hardworking, strong and independent women out there. – Enriqueta Arias | Photo credit: Francisco Betanzos

Mathieu Tremblin – Legible Graffiti

Mathieu Tremblin is a Strasbourg based artist who implements graphic processes of intervention inspired by anonymous, autonomous and spontaneous practices and expressions in urban space in order to question the systems of legislation, representation and symbolization of the city.

In a recent project to help the average passerby understand, read and interact with graffiti tags on walls, doors or other facades. Using some classic graffiti techniques and of course far more legible letters, Tremblin hilariously turns vandal lettering into simplistic typography.
