Street Update #41
As you’re already used to, each week WideWalls chooses several murals you liked the most and shared on our FACEBOOK page. For the last couple of days, some of our favourite artists have been very busy – they’ve been showing their skills and talents from Europe to Africa and America. Our chosen ones for this week are Aryz, BRUSK, DALeast, Etam Cru and Faith47. Most of the murals were painted as a part of some project or festival, and done as collaboration with other street artists.
So lean back and check out the list we made for you! Enjoy!
Aryz in Aalborg
Barcelona-based muralist didn’t let the rain stop him as he just finished the first mural for the We Aart Festival in Aalborg, Denmark. Working on a truly epic scale and under the rain, the fanstastically talented Aryz dropped his usual character based work by portraying this lovely woman dressed in a jacket made of leaves. The topic and the colors used in a piece perfectly merge with the surrounding. If you stop by Aalborg, you will be able to find the piece on Lindholmssti 2.
The Lyon-based artist Brusk was invited to Tunisia to participate in the Djerbahood Project organized by Galerie Itinerrance and paint a mural. The Da Mental Vaporz (DMV) member did this fantastic piece for the event entitled “Camelhood”. Featuring his signature dripping style, this fantastic camel is featuring bold, vibrant details and a gazillion of playful details. What a creative way of connecting the traditional elements with the modern touch!
The Chinese painter DALeast is currently in New York City where he just finished working on this new mural in Manhattan. Thanks to the East Village Mural Project, the Cape-Town-based muralist quickly worked his way through some of his signature energetic line-work with these massive birds. Quite impressive, isn’t it?
For pupils, and even for those who have finished their education, September always reminds us of the beginning of the school year. This is why Sainer and Bezt, from the Polish street art duo Etam Cru, chose this particular topic for their newest piece at the always excellent Nuart Street Art Festival. Entitled “First Day Of School”, the Polish superstars dropped some of their hyper-clean signature imagery for the locals to enjoy.
Faith47 has been one busy lady for the last couple of months. She is currently in California where she was invited by the DoArt Foundation to paint a new piece on the streets of Los Angeles. The South African muralist spent a few days up high on her cherry picker to paint this massive piece which is showing a series of majestic swans in movement. Beautifully refreshing and quite impressive, works of Faith47 seem to always find a way to our list. Good job!
