With a name like Roadsworth, you could easily guess that this isn't any ordinary street artist. Though born Peter Gibson, he chose the name Roadsworth because, as he states, "Where Wordsworth is a poet of words, Roadsworth is a poet of roads."
Though he started painting on the streets as a form of activism (for more bike paths), his motivation later evolved into a more personal one. It…Continue

A massive new mural recently went up in Buenos Aires called The Magician. A large piece of wall next to a train station became the perfect spot for Martin Ron and Martin Worich's awesome work. It features a rather large man maneuvering a "hand" machine to unzip the wall. What's underneath but more rabbits than one magician would ever know what to do with! Love the illusion that the…
Guess what just popped up in the Netherlands? An awesome 3D street painting of a classic arcade game from the 80's. It's Pac-Man! Leon Keer, the artist that designed the 3D LEGO Terracotta Army for the Sarasota Chalk Festival in Florida, was invited by the owner of…

UK-based Mobstr puts up simple sentences that were designed…Continue

Though seeing a giant can of Coke in the middle of a dirt field seems interesting enough, when you find out what the meaning is behind it, the piece becomes even more intriguing. According to Juxtapoz, the artist duo behind it, Icy and Sot "decided after their president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared…
What happens when a swanky hotel and an open-minded art gallery come together? You get a permanent outdoor installation that celebrates the art of graffiti. Currently on the wall of Mondrian SoHo are 120 photographs of New York's Lower East Side taken by Sol LeWitt in 1979.
Called On the Walls of the Lower East Side, the outdoor exhibition shows the decayed landscape of the…Continue
