DZIA and Bartkore collaboration in Bocholt, Belgium

Just a few days ago DZIA and Bartkore wrapped up their collaborative mural next to a canal near the town called Bocholt in Belgium. Knowing each other from festivals and other jams over the years, this was the first time these two artists collaborated. Located under a bridge, a very impulse collaboration between the artists happened and the piece was completed in just 3 hours!

Our styles aren’t that compatible at first sight, but there is always a way to collide and I think we nailed it with this one. Also it’s always a pleasure to work with someone who paints fast and has his own style and world of characters/puppets to choose out.

It was stormy weather in Belgium so we had to find a wall protected against the hard wind. The spot is below a bridge next to the canal near the town Bocholt. I always try to find an animal that relates to his surroundings so it was an ideal place to create this giant colourful duck, and Bartkore added his humanistic puppet on top like it was riding it and he added some rubber ducks on the sides to suit the composition of the wall.

Check out more detailed pictures below and keep checking back with us for more updates from Belgium!

Closing Party: “The Like of Us” Curated by Maya Hayuk & Alethia Weingarten 01/20/18 Brooklyn, NYC

THE LIKES OF US, curated by Maya Hayuk and Alethia Weingarten, showcases the work of ten Williamsburg artists shaped by a history of activating creative shared space. The exhibition features painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video and musical programming.  This multifaceted show will be closing on January 20th and The Center for Advancement of Contemporary Art would like to invite you for one last chance to check out the exhibition!

“A wise man once told me ‘if you want to see something, curate something’. In 1998, I did just that. Culling from the vibrant, immediate community of San Francisco, I didn’t have to reach far to create an exhibition in the contemporary gallery where I made a new friend, Alethia Weingarten, who was then the director. Now, almost 20 years and many iterations of lives, likes, loves and evolving everythings later, Alethia and I have co-curated a show that’s been a long-time coming. We hope you join the likes of us this winter.”

– Maya Hayuk,

“We pulled this show together in a couple of months.  I mean with all of the artists volunteering their time contributing, you know even though Elithia and I are the co-curators technically of this show. Every single artist in the show made these incredible contributions, I’d stretch it by saying sacrifices. I’m going to say it was an incredible community effort which is already all very natural to all of us and we all come up together. We all bring each other up. It’s not a solo affair.”

 – Maya Hayuk

“The Like of Us” features not only established street artists like MAYA HAYUK, but additionally exhibits works of all kinds by TUNDE ADEBIMPE, HISHAM BHAROOCHA, MORGAN BLAIR, TOM BUBUL, AMY GARTRELL, MICHAEL HAMBOUZ, JOHN ORTH, BENJY RUSSELL, & WOLFY PART II.

The art space located in Williamsburg Brooklyn not only serves as an outlet for up and coming local artists to show their work, but also serves as Maya’s studio, and the home of countless memorable parties!
If this was not enough to get your out of the house FACES OF DEATH (F.O.D.) an annual project paying tribute to the past year’s fallen heroes and icons featuring portrait drawings from countless international artists culled together into ever-evolving iterations of limited edition prints. F.O.D. will be celebrating their 20th anniversary by partnering with Du-Good Press to publish this year’s hand-silkscreened commemorative zine to be released at the party!  These will sell fast so get there early!

PITR/Pizza In The Rain’s Ambitious “Good Example” Project in Chicago

PITR x Polly Jimenez “Portrait Of Octavio Paz”

Some artists find a wall and meticulously plot out a single mural. Some grab some cans, find some walls, and cover them until the sun comes up (or the paint runs out). Chicago’s Pizza In The Rain continues to impress with ambitious projects that dazzle visually while also have deeper meanings. PITR spent 9 months in 2017 working on “Good Example”, collaborating with Polly Jimenez, Roland Santana, Danny Sobor, Matt Wojtan, Crop, Kristen Valentine, & Joe Renda.

PITR x Roland Santana “Portrait Of Austin Clinton Brown”

Street Art News’ @jreich connected with PITR who had this to say about “Good Example”:

PITR x Danny Sobor “Portrait Of Janina Forbertowna”

“This past year, I was fortunate enough to travel through France, Hungary, Austria, England and the Czech Republic. In each foreign country/city, I found the locals having the same political and socio-economic discussions we American’s are having.  In most cases, these discussions revolved around polarizing “leaders” and political figures. While initially comforting and relatable (hey, you guys are having the same problems too), these ironically similar issues have begun to compound and are forecasting a rather bleak worldly future.”

Matt Wojtan x PITR “Portrait of Howard Zinn”

“The Good Example project featured historical individuals in an effort to reintroduce and highlight those past events/people who have positively impacted our future. Participating artists were asked to select one personal/regional/historical influencer that enacted positive change, at which time myself and said artist then painted our separate interpretations of this person. This project simply strove to showcase those that have done good.”

Crop x PITR “Portrait of Fred Hampton”

“Good Example exhibited one large-scale portrait from 7 local and international artists/collectives, in addition to one piece from myself. All work was done in gray-scale. The first six pieces were done on paper and wheatpasted on the street The final, and only sanctioned installation, was painted on wood canvases and installed outside at 1424 W. Chicago Ave.”

Kristen Valentine x PITR “Portrait of Abba Kovner”

“Lilith” by Alexis Diaz in Wynwood, Miami

Geared with ink and brushes, the talented Puerto Rican muralist Alexis Diaz worked his way through this ultra detailed piece. Inhabited mostly by phantasmagorical animals, Alexis Diaz’s captivating murals are characterised by a very detailed technique and line-by-line precision. Diaz’s signature style is the use of tiny black brushstrokes on white to render his creatures, making them look like highly-detailed pen-and-ink drawings, and drawings like these take a long while. The mural you see here took the artist 21 days to do.

This is my interpretation of the mythological history of “Lilith” adapted to the “Florida” state. Using the tropical color of Miami and another element like the alligator as an animal icon of this area of south of Florida…

Check out the stunning detail of this mural below and stay tuned for more updates from North America!

Invader invades Cap-Ferret in France

Legendary street artist Invader recently took a trip to Cap-Ferret in France to unleash a brand new wave of invasions.

The artist “invades” cities worldwide, adroitly placing his tiled pieces in certain locations and awarding himself “points” based on the intricacy of the mural and the difficulty in placing it. “This,” he said in 2011, “is the most addictive game I have ever played.” He works without permission the vast majority of the time. The deeply personal, large-scale aspect of this ongoing artistic exercise can be likened to the psychogeographical experiments of fellow French artist Guy Debord.

Invader’s use of low culture in a high art conceptual project also has parallels with the Situationist movement in general. The invasions don’t simply descend upon major cosmopolises, but also far-flung exotic locales such as Mombasa and Katmandu. In a metaphorical sense, his forces have razed his home city of Paris to the ground. The mosaics adorn each letter of the Hollywood sign and one has even materialised on the suit jacket lapel of former French Premier Jacques Chirac.

With the invasion of Cap-Ferret, The elusive french artist have just passed 75 invaded cities and 3600 Space Invaders installed across the World. Quite an impressive track-record!

Take a look at more images and check back with us soon for more udpates from Master Space Invader.

Marina Capdevila in Falset, Spain

Our friend Marina Capdevila recently wrapped up a super cute new piece somewhere on the streets of her hometown in Falset, Spain.

Based in Barcelona, Marina’s work covers from small illustrations to giant wall murals. Her Inspiration comes from people’s daily routine to give them a very peculiar sense of humor.

This piece represents several focus points of her hometown such as the long-standing wine traditions, local trade and of course tourism.

Take a look at more images after the break and keep checking back with us for the latest street art updates from the streets of Europe and beyond.
