A transcendent experience now greets visitors at the rainbow-hued, geometric facade of a local chapel in Youssofia, Morocco. Street artist Okuda San Migual has covered the church in his signature eye-catching & multicolored shapes. Giving his art a higher level of power and spiritualism through the canvas of a church, the piece, entitled 11 Mirages of Freedom, is part of the British Council sponsored Street Art Caravane. The movement is taking place around Morocco and is helping to build an art community around the country. To check out more images of this spiritual prism-like artwork, read here.
We love this one from Prague in 2013! On his tumblr page he writes, "globalization spares nothing and no one, not even those who have nothing. “ Fra.Biancoshock is a street artist who lives and breathes his "Ephemeralism" in Milan Italy. His urban art projects expose the permanence of a great idea or experience, while accepting the brevity of their own physical existence in space. It all may sound complicated, but just check out his work! Most of it will provoke something inside of you. If it doesn't than it wasn't meant to. Visit Fra.Biancoshock website here
Twin brothers and Brazilian artists Octavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, known together as Os Gemeos, just finished their latest project – a colossal mural covering six industrial silos on Granville Island in Vancouver, Canada. The mural, which is part of the Vancouver Biennale, depicts six vividly colored 70 foot (23 meter) tall characters. The six silos are wrapped all the way around,giving it a total area of 23,500 square feet (7,200 sq meters). The twin brothers took almost the whole month to finish the piece – the grandest one of their career so far. These cartoonish giants are also a part of Os Gemeos’ on-going “Giants” mural project, parts of which have already brought life and color to many other major cities around the world.
