Hey, you know JR, right? The French street artist who has become something of a worldwide phenom over the past decade? Yes, that JR. The one who takes black-and-white photos of people, their faces, close-ups of their eyes and mouths, and then prints them up at massive, mega-blown-up scale and
We recently stumbled upon some awesome street art work (see pic below) by the talented “Decisions and Review.” The work was wheatpasted in a back-alley (is there any other kind?) in the recently hip-ish Los Angeles suburb of El Segundo. Never heard of El Segundo? Well, let us fill you
Cacti, like the illustrated tri-color cactus pasted onto this dumpster, dot Southern California’s natural desert landscape from Coachella to Mexico to the coastline of Santa Barbara and e eruwhete in between. So it’s fitting that street art depicting this resilient desert plant would dot the urban landscape of Los Angeles.
We spotted some new street art from artist Shepard Fairey in an unusual spot last week. Along Pacific Coast Highway, under the towering bluffs of north Santa Monica, there’s an abandoned, partially destroyed retaining wall where two new black-and-white graphic posters had been wheat-pasted. One poster is of draped triangle
Cute little black-and-white wheat-paste (“wheatie”) images of a child on a wooden hoarding wrapped around a lamp post base on Grand Street in Chinatown, New York City.
Here’s another in a series of wheat-paste street art pieces by the artist Razo (a.k.a., “DeeRazo”) that uses iconography of famous American historical figures as depicted on U.S. currency.
We recently started seeing a random few of these wheat-paste street art images of a young, Jackson 5-era Michael Jackson appearing on walls around downtown Manhattan. But then this past weekend, these seemed to multiply exponentially and appear everywhere, from the Lower East Side to Brooklyn’s Greenpoint. In the LES,
New street from the always awesome A.S.V.P. at the site of the former Pulino’s restaurant on Houston Street near southwest corner of intersection with Bowery, across from the Bowery Wall, a.k.a., the Deitch Wall.
Pictured here is some more wheat-paste street art by the ubiquitous and prolific post-graffiti artist Cost (a.k.a., Adam Cost) referencing the French street artist Invader (a.k.a., Space Invader) and his signature retro-1980s videogame icon. This one is on Crosby Street in SoHo, in New York City.
The ubiquitous Adam Cost put up these Space Invader wheatpaste posters recently in the Lower East Side of New York. The iconic, classic videogame graphic images is a subtle nod to the presence of French street artist Invader who was visiting New York that week for a film launch and
Here’s another one of those street art wheat-paste-ups of actress and singer Selena Gomez. There are a bunch of variations on the Gomez theme. This one has the Spanish words “Sin Fronteras” (English translation: “without limits”).
The artist known as Dain just put up a fresh wheat-paste streeet art piece on Ludlow Street (which is gradually becoming a kind of “street art alley”) in New York’s Lower East Side this past weekend. Great stuff from one of our favorite street art creators.
The street art of the prolific New York artist Fumero is a reliable presence on the landscapes of downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. His series of “Grampa” illustrations are rendered and wheat-pasted in various sizes, colors and styles, but rarely as large as this new, giant line-drawing “wheatie” that just went
The Brooklyn-based artist Bast has been kind of quiet lately. We haven’t been seeing fresh work from the artist in a while except for these small but complex wheat-pasted street art pieces in NoHo, in downtown Manhattan.
Here’s some new artwork put up last week by Russell King on Ludlow Street, between Hester and Canal, in New York’s Lower East Side. We really like the scale, format and use of repeating images. This is the best recent work we’ve seen by King this year.
