Welcome to the 80th edition of latest updates from the streets, where urban artists do their magic.

Let’s not forget the upcoming festivals and events: Long Beach is ready for another POW! WOW! Mural Festival this summer, Upfest is coming to Bristol while the French city Grenoble will host its first ever street art festival. The City of Philadelphia will soon be covered in public art, and that of many big artists too. Indoors, Diamond will put his art on display at White Noise Gallery in Rome and Zosen will be in Barcelona. Quite a schedule! And now it’s time to see the artworks that hit the streets in the past seven days.

David Walker in Nancy

There is a beautiful new mural on a building in the French city of Nancy. A colorful portrait, covering one whole wall, becoming the largest work of art to date for a British artist recognizable for these kinds of murals. We are talking about Berlin-based David Walker, who uses no help of brushes or stencils to make his art, and it’s nevertheless absolutely breathtaking. If you’re in Paris, Galerie Mathgoth is currently hosting his solo show, so make sure not to miss it, because his smaller pieces are just as stunning as the big ones!

Fintan Magee in Belgium

Last week it was Nychos and the amazing piece he did for North West Walls in Werchter, Belgium, and right alongside him there was Australian artist Fintan Magee, painting his own wonderful mural on the metal containers. Entitled Moving the Pointless Monument, the artwork is truly divine, as Magee immersed it in the surrounding vegetation. It shows one of the artist’s signature characters, carrying an apparent “pointless monument” which seems to be a cube of some sort. Make sure you find the right angle and just.. enjoy the view!

DALeast in Denmark

Danish photographer Søren Solkær, whom we recently met as the photographer of street artists, curated the Outdoor Surface project in Denmark recently, and one of the artists participating in it was Chinese talent DALeast. Staying true to his trademark line-work style, of course, over the course of a few days he painted a large bird “landing” on a massive wall of a building. DALeast painted the walls around the world and on every continent since 2005 and is currently living in Cape Town, South Africa.

Jeroo in Strasbourg

A cool rhino appeared on the streets of Strasbourg in France, accompanied by letters JROO. Easy to guess, it’s the work of Christoph Ganter aka Jeroo, a German graffiti artist based in Stuttgart. He began writing graffiti in 1993 and produced the first canvases in 2003. With his distinctive style and continuous output, he internationally represents the German graffiti scene. His artworks usually feature animals and elements of nature, going towards a few hues of the same color and displaying Jeroo’s great skills in depicting sharp outlines of his subjects.

Catwoman in Strasbourg

It wasn’t just Jeroo who was busy in Strasbourg – German artist Mr. Woodland did too, along with French artist Storm500, Monsta and Missy. Their joint mural, entitled Catwoman and her admirer, surely shows how much fun this bunch had while making this piece. It shows a number of quite interesting characters showing their love for the Catwoman who seems, well, not so interested in all that admiration after all. Maybe she’ll change her mind in the meantime!
