Continuing his tour of Europe, ABOVE sent us these photos of some urban street art he just completed on the Berlin Wall in Germany! Easily one of my favorite pieces, I love how he integrates word-play, site-specific art, and a human hand holding flowers in his latest piece! Make sure to check out the video below for a more in-depth look!

Some more fresh street art comes to us yet again from London. "Something about graf has stuck with me my whole life…maybe it's just because I wasn't really bad at it!", says graffiti artist and graphic designer Dep. We couldn't agree more!
Dep’s first clue that he could make a living from his art came when British hardcore rap group Son Of Noise asked him to… Continue
Some cool street murals from London-based artist Tom Blackford, aka Inkfetish. “Getting into street art was a natural process,” he says. “I started out playing around with graffiti in my teens, then in my early 20’s, I met people that really inspired me to start realizing my illustrations on a bigger scale.”
Blackford about the future of street art: “London… Continue
I can't help but laugh when I look at Mentalgassi's street art installations in Berlin, Germany. Consisting of three core members, they go around wheatpasting faces on public installations, such as reclyling bins and tickets validators, thereby evoking emotion from those that pass by. Gotta love their sense of humor!…
I am absolutely in love with these latest street installations by Brazil-based Titi Freak. After making his way over to Japan, he's been keeping himself busy by painting the streets of Osaka for the past three months. Seamlessly coinciding with Japanese culture and landscape, his brightly colored koi fish really sets the bar high for other street… Continue
Matthew Small’s work has strong urban roots. By painting directly onto found pieces of metal, he brings physical elements of the city directly into his work. The subjects of his portraits are also found anonymously on the streets of London. Executed with astonishingly textured brushstrokes, Matt's pieces feel both abstract and incredibly real and… Continue

The thing that stands out most to me about Ghostpatrol's street graffiti is how each of his pieces are so remarkably different and original. Incredibly innovative and driven by creative impulses, Ghostpatrol has been described as dark, moody, energetic and passionate. A self taught illustrator who currently resides in Melbourne, Australia, GP specializes in fine ink… Continue
One of our favorite TV families just got a little more street cred. How cool are these Simpsons graffiti pieces from all over the world? The image of Homer breaking through a wall by Nakor is my favorite. While most of these other murals come to us from Vancouver, in honor of Vancouver's 2010 Winter Olympics, one of these is from… Continue
Among the many facets of the Arts that I really enjoy is the art of Urban Dance. I want to pay my respects to this art form in my first blog post.
For my first installation, I will give tribute to the style called WAACKING, made popular by the likes of none other than Jody Watley. It is a style that came out of good ol' La La Land, and I love it. Here is a Waacking battle that was held in New York,… Continue

While moving around the sculpture, the reflections on the glass continuously change. In this way, the… Continue
What nice wind turbines you have. Wind power is one of the fastest growing forms of alternative energy in the world. More and more, wind power mills are seen in the countryside, in large wind farms and for the most part, away from city life. But a new form of wind power is now designed to work in an urban environment. Who knows, maybe we'll all have these babies in our backyards…
