Others point to […]

Artist Bio: Herakut

We often think of street art as an individual event, one where a person comes up with an idea and paints it onto the surface on their own. Artists, after all, generally want to be known for their work and achievement, and will take credit for their work when people discover it. That’s a simple […]

The Biggest Mural in Pachuca, Mexico

If there’s one thing that’s true about street art, it’s that it’s getting bigger. Sometimes that means it’s getting more recognition, being displayed in more and more places, or the artists themselves are enjoying more and more attention, and hopefully compensation, for their work.

Fairey, probably most famous for his OBEY and Andre the Giant graffiti in the eighties and of course the iconic HOPE poster from President Obama’s 2008 campaign, was in town to paint the […]

Fintan Magee

Besides having one of the greatest names of all time, street artist Fintan Magee has been putting his hometown of Brisbane, Australia on the map. At least when it comes to street art. Lauded as Australia’s answer to Banksy, the young artist’s similarities with the renowned English artist pretty much stop at the lazy comparison. […]

Yarn Bomber Naomi RAG

When most people think of street art, they think of only a few materials. Well, that’s not true, most people think of one single medium, paint, when it comes to art found in public spaces. It is, after all, the most widely used material, but ever since graffiti started, people have been experimenting with the […]

Graffiti has a long history of being done in precarious places. In New York, street artists have climbed higher and higher to avoid clean up crews, often climbing twenty stories and painting with ropes and harnesses to covey their message to the world.
