Azo is a Ukrainian artist currently based in Kiev, but he recently did a bit of painting and traveling around Europe. Azo’s work freaks me the hell out, but that doesn’t mean it’s not interesting. Actually, the creepiness is exactly why I love it. His characters are something between Phlegm, Know Hope and Parra, but darker (okay, Parra can already be pretty dark, but darker than Phlegm and Know Hope).
Julien Seth is a public art documentarian for French television. The job’s required traveling has given Seth some interesting opportunities. Plenty of street artists these days travel and put work up around the globe, but instead of sticking to some blandly universal subject matter, Seth’s murals are inspired by the countries they’re painted in.
Here are a few examples of Julien Seth’s work. For more, check out his Facebook or his Flickr.
If you’re a Broken Fingaz fan in Vienna, you’re in luck. If you’re not a Broken Fingaz fan but you are in Vienna, you’re still in luck because you’re about to become a fan. If you’re a Broken Fingaz fan and are not in Vienna (like me) but can afford to travel there (not like me), call work and tell them you’re sick because this Thursday, June 28th they have yet another solo show (because let’s be honest, who’s going to put work next to BF’s?) opening at Inoperable Gallery. For this show, they’ll be exhibiting some new works alongside pieces from their recent show in London and will hang through the month of the July. The piece above, done recently on the side of the gallery, is entitled “Chase the Devil” which is a play on the long history of Devil mythology in Vienna.
