Our man Mear One recently sent over a new piece called “Planet X” which was recently exhibited at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival (@LIBfestival). He describes this work as being “a mythological gumbo of global mythology that predates our written history” referencing various celestial events documented by the Ancient Greek, Vedic, Sumerian, Egyptian, Native American, Tibetan, Chinese, Nordic protocultures. More image and another awesome time-lapse video of the over 300+ hours MEAR spent painting this piece after the jump!

This month, as part of Project 12+1’s second year running, Contorno Urbano is showing a mural by Roc Blackblock, a well known Catalan artist who specialises in stenciling; an artistic technique often used in graffiti using paint and one or more stencils cut by the artist. Defining himself as an ‘all terrain’ artist, Roc Blackblock is as comfortable painting on walls as he is on paper, canvas, in digital formats, or even on skin — he also works as an illustrator and tattoo artist.
