The street art of the artist who goes by the moniker Made of Hagop never ceases to impress us with the aesthetic vision of his work. We recently came across this newer piece in Venice.

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.Continue Reading

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 triangleContinue Reading

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.

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.

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 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 wentContinue Reading

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.
