Art Whino‘s G40 Art Summit resulted in almost two dozen new murals for Richmond, Virginia this month. Congrats to Art Whino. It looks like they have put together a really amazing festival and transformed at least a part of the city. Starting with this post and continuing for one or two more, I’ll be trying to show all of these new murals. First up, we have work by Pixel Pancho, Roa, Gaia, Aryz, Jaz, Lelo and Scribe.
Sometimes I go through the Vandalog archives and realize that I’ve neglected to post about an artist whose work I really enjoy. One of those artists is Pixelpancho. So here’s some of his recent work, but it’s definitely work checking out his flickr archives.
Mike Pearce was in Miami last week taking photos of the murals getting painted. As it has been over the past few years, Wynwood was overrun (in, I think, a good way) for about a week with artists working outdoors on any wall they could get permission to paint or get away with painting. Here are a few of Mike’s pictures of the artists at work…
This is Belgium’s Bue the Warrior. Recently he’s been collaborating with Billy and Low Bros in Berlin on some fantastic walls and shutters, pictures of which I posted last week. I rather like his style, (maybe because it’s similar to a few other artists I like), so here a few of his other pieces from all around the world. Enjoy.
For more pictures of Bue’s work check out his flickr here.
Roa, Pin, Pixelpancho and Blu are some of the first arrivals painting at the Draw The Line festival in Campobasso, Italy. All in all, over 100 artists will participate in the festival, which officially launches in September. In the mean time, artists are coming by to paint. There was some initial controversy about Blu’s piece, but that has since settled down.
Pixelpancho has a sort of low-brow style that I don’t usually go for. While I liked his murals, I didn’t think I’d dig his work as much indoors. Nonetheless, after seeing this piece last December (looks better in the flesh), I’ve definitely become a fan. So I’m happy to say that Pixelpancho is showing at one of Italy’s most fun art galleries: Galo Art Gallery in Torino. The show opened on Friday, but runs through May 7th. Here’s a wall Pixelpancho painted inside the gallery:
