It’s that time of the month when we take a look back at all the street art festivals, exhibitions and individual initiatives and bring you the best of the best when it comes to Urban Art. To always stay up to date with murals worldwide, be sure to follow us on Instagram.

TokTok in Italy

An Italian urban artist active since 2014, TokTok creates interventions which are often ironic or thought-provoking. All around Italy, the artist created unauthorized and ephemeral installations using budget materials in his everyday life. These urban rearrangements are meant to make a passer-by think or, at least, bring them a smile.

Pener in Olsztyn

Coming from Poland, Pener combines abstraction and traditional graffiti, basing his works around geometric groupings and angular forms which reference futuristic architectural design. The artist recently visited his hometown Olsztyn, Poland on the occasion of SummerVibe festival. Titled FLORA, the new mural represents an interesting development in his work where the usual intersecting shapes and transitions between colors become softer as they melt almost imperceptibly into each other.

Seth Globepainter in Vienna

As his moniker suggests, the French street artist Seth Globepainter is traveling the world and using the streets as his canvas. Wherever he works, he incorporates local symbols and subjects from the surroundings. The artist recently visited Vienna on the occasion of Calle Libre festival. Titled Gemeinschaftsbaum, the new piece depicts two children lying in hammocks in his signature playful style.

Seth Globepainter in Aalborg

As part of this year’s Out In The Open mural festival in Aalborg, Denmark, curated by the KIRK Gallery, Seth Globepainter also donned two brand new pieces – even though he was supposed to only paint one! As usual, Seth set out to offer a child’s perspectives and experiences: with Jack in the Box, he presents a boy taking a break from drawing, while The Phoenix covers the closed windows of a building with paintings of the sky, making it seem transparent, with a girl and a bird sitting on the top floor.
