“La Memoire de L’Eau” is Remed’s latest piece and according to the artist a message to the kids of his hometown, Lille.
Painted at the local Montessori school, the new wall shows the complete message written both in bold letters in the form of a complex and decorative grid, and as handwriting. The last one being certainly easier to read than the first one. Beautiful message, beautiful mural.
Spanish artist Escif was recently in Villareal, Spain where he painted this new mural titled “El Vandalismo Ilustrado” or “The Enlightened Vandalism” a piece that shows men in different vandalic (and non vandalic) situations. As usual a clever piece where the artist plays a “language game” that it’s both intelligent and funny.
It’s not often I publish Stinkfish’s work, but once in a while it appears a piece that deserves some attention. I guess we can include this last one in that category.
Highly decorative, the new piece shows a portrait based in a picture taken by the artist earlier this year. Stinkfish explains his passion and work as follows:
I always carry a photographic camera with me. I like taking pictures of people that catch my attention, most often without them realizing it, without speaking directly with them. From there come out the pictures which I then turn into stencils and took to the streets. I find interesting to make these images travel, images of people I know through the camera and might never see again.
It’s a long time since I posted something by Tellas now and I have to admit, I really love this new mural.
Painted for the Poliniza Festival in Valencia, Spain, the new piece stands out as one of Tellas’ most beautiful and haunting in the last time. The focus is, as usual, on organic forms expressing the motive an immense serenity which is not only emphasized by the soft greens and blues, but also by the fact that our central figure, a stone-like form covered by foliage, seems to float on the wall space only being interrupted (and activated) by the soft explosion of the leaves covering it.

I originally made the Star Icon in January 1996 as I was transitioning into a period of my work inspired by Russian Constuctivist Propaganda posters. I had made a simplified illustration of the Giant face I called the Icon and i decided I wanted to make a star iteration. I cut a star shaped window out and played with cropping until I was happy. The print below was the first print I made using the star image. I only made an edition of 90 of them and probably only sold a small percentage of the 90. The rest went up on the street or were damaged. The Obey Star has been a crucial element in my work ever since so I decided to make a letterpress variation on the 1996 O.G. Obey Star. I’m very happy with how it turned out.
El Mac is currently in Denmark in occasion of his new and first solo exhibition at Galerie Wolfsen where two other artists featured in this blog also will be showing; Anders Gjennestad and Reka.
As usual in El Mac’s work the motive is a stunning portrait painted in that signature style and photorealism we all admire.
