Last year we were lucky enough to be invited out to 1xRUN’s Murals in the Market in Detroit. The event was surprising in so many ways, from the time taken by the team to show us what the city was really about – the once-indomitable motoring capital of the USA, with a thriving industry that birthed a lot of modern Capitalist structure, that has since come back from being slammed into depression and decay – to the amount of heart and community that the organisers put into it. With barber-chair artist chats, a roster of local events and genuine support for the artists and workers involved in the festival and beyond, one message was clear, Detroit got soul.

Special highlights were collabs between local artist Martin Whatson and Canadian Sandra Chevrier, some amazing work from Futura, a giant robot by Pixel Pancho, paste-ups from Sex Pistol’s artist Jamie Reid, the playful work of Bortusk Leer and one of the world’s largest murals by French couple Ella & Pitr.
As we were were over for Art Basel and Scope, catching up with the homies and checking out the art, we couldn’t help but take a few photos of the best that Wynwood had to offer in the daylight… Including work from Pixel Pancho, Vexta, Reka, Elle, Li Hill, Nychos, Lister, Maya Hayuk, Cleon Peterson, Retna, Shepard Fairey, Shark Toof, Miss Van, Bicicleta Sem Freio, Faith 47, Seth Globepainter, Martin Whatson, Adnate, James Bullough, Shiro, Opire & Bonar, Herakut, Daleast, Sheryo & The Yok, Fin DAC, MTO, Bikismo and Alexis Diaz.

Following the success of ‘Land of Sunshine’ published in 2012 comes the next book titled ‘STREET ART NOW’. An updated snapshot of the Melbourne street art and graffiti scene over the last two years is once again, all shot by Dean Sunshine on his travels across Melbourne and beyond.
‘STREET ART NOW’ is a larger, hardback book with 206 pages highlighting over 100 local artists and international artists who have painted in Australia.
All sales from ‘STREET ART NOW’ will be put towards any future editions, furthering Dean’s wish to provide ongoing documentation of Melbourne street art online and via printed media.
Richard & Le Feuvre is a new gallery opening in Geneve, Switzerland with a big group show titled Paper Party 2. Exhibiting around 50 original works on paper by 11 artists from all over the globe, the idea of this show is to present the diversity of urban and graffiti related art to the local art lovers.
With most of the featured artists having strong roots in graffiti movement, this exhibition shows the variety of styles and directions that it can lead to. The strong lineup consisting of known names that never exhibited before, is the proven recipe for a successful exhibit.
From the abstract graffiti of Mist, the surrealistic comic like works of Alexöne Dizac, Jeff Soto‘s low brow inspired works, steampunk imagery of Pixel Pancho, Sowat‘s abstract calligraphy style, the pop explosions of Andrew McAttee, the wide range of styles and works guarantee an interesting install and show.
