One of our favourite artists and friends of the company, JARUS, recently sent over a selection of images from last year. The email consisted of some of the best mural work we’ve seen all year that we’re definitely stoked to share. We know it’s already February but a recap is better late than never!
German street artist 1010, created an enormous new piece for the Knotempunkt art festival a little while ago that takes up the entire side of a building in Hamburg. Using his signature illusion style, this artwork looks like it is made up of layers of brightly colored paper that are being torn away to reveal a dark interior of the building. Peep the making of video after the jump!
Tost Films was at Art Basel this year among many other amazing artists and companies. Luckily for us, the film production company documented artist BIKISMO painting one of the most talked about murals at Wynwood Walls entitled “Chrome Dogg.” Take a look here at some process shots and the the time-lapse video of some mastery at work!
The incredible street art installation and muralist Swoon presented a new mural for her fans that made it out to Basel Week Miami. Located in the prestigious Wynwood Walls complex, the large wall will be preserved for many future viewers and audiences to come.
Faith47 and Alexis Diaz teamed up on a collaboration mural during Art Basel last week. The stunning mural was a mix of South Africa-based Faith47’s female portraiture entwined with the darker illustrative style of the Puerto Rican Diaz. Beautiful finished and action shots after the jump.
Delbert Rodriguez Gutierrez, better known by his graffiti name “Demz” recently lost his battle with a traumatic brain injury at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. Demz was struck by an unmarked police car after allegedly being chased for being a suspect of criminal mischief. The shocking tragedy came just hours before a city wide march against police brutality due to another young man (Israel Hernandez) being tazed after a foot race with the police in 2013. It’s terrible the graffiti community has lost another one too see and we would like to share our condolences with the friends and family of Gutierrez. More photos and videos after the jump.
Here we’ve got the second instalment of the Art Basel Miami 2014 recap photos via our man Beast over at Visual Orgasm. We’re unbelievably bummed we missed this event but you can count we’ll be there next year. In the meantime go over to VO and take a look at all the great stuff they’ve got going on!
