It’s Monday already and therefore weekly round up time once more. No playing this week, I am going straight into sharing some amazing art with you, my dear followers!
First up is the header piece which is by Greek mural artist Insane for part of Urban Nation’s street art mile in Berlin. I’m not sure the artist could have picked a better name to go by as the work he creates truly is – Insane. The artist uses this double exposure/3D technique which looks incredible on the wall in normal vision but when viewed through 3D glasses it appears like two completely different pieces. This particular piece depicts a female figure smelling a flower but beneath you can also see that in the alternative piece she is looking at her mobile phone. Truly incredible work and I really wish I had 3D Glasses with me that day to be able to show off the piece in both exposures.
Second this week is this piece by Ivan Floro in Granollers outside of Barcelona. I found this piece a little while ago but was struggling to identify the artist due to the lack of tag. Thankfully last Saturday I found some more of Ivan’s work which he had tagged and immediately I was able to indetify the artist – finally the wait is over!
The piece is of a tired looking man rubbing his eyes and it is really something special. It has that fine art look that you are used to seeing more in a gallery than on the streets. I assume that Ivan used brushes and rollers to create the piece given the textures and tones you can see. Another stunning mural and I’m really beginning to see a real increase in this style of work on the streets, which is no bad thing at all.
And lastly is this mural by Mr Cenz who brought his ‘Futuristic freestyle space funk’ to Aberdeen for the release the pressure festival a while back. I caught this wall whilst in the city for Nuart and it was an unexpected surprise to see it hiding beneath street level in community gardens.
It’s exactly the type of work we have all come to expect from Cenz, a beautiful female face surround by a whirlpool of shapes and colours. The way in which Cenz creates the females faces leaves you feeling like you are looking through a window to a never seen before galaxy. Inspiring work.
