Artist in focus – Lost Hills

So I had planned on writing a whole column about the work of an artist who's work I really loved and felt like giving some attention too. It was going to be this whole artist feature thing that might turn into a regular column. Someway through starting to write the piece I ended up chatting... Continue Reading →

La Tabacalera #7

I''ve gone for a double header this week as Animalitoland had two works on show during my visit to La Tabacalera in Madrid. One piece graced the outer wall and the other was located in the tunnels below the building. I had actually totally forgotten about the second wall until I started to write this piece...

Wednesday wall of fame #10

This weeks Wednesday wall is this awesome character by Italian artist and Amsterdam resident Cecilia Pignocchi AKA The Oogman. Upon seeing this wall I quickly realised that I was looking at the work of yet another artist who's work I was unfamiliar with, it's impossible to know them all right? The piece itself is of Cecilia's colourful Oogman... Continue Reading →

Wednesday wall of fame #9

This week's Wednesday wall is a collaborative effort between French artists Abys and Scaf Oner. I normally hate sharing walls that are covered in so much shade but I was limited in time to go and see this wall before it was buffed and of course the sunshine in Barna plays havoc with shooting at certain times...

La Tabacalera #2

Part two of my series about abandoned tobacco factory turned creative centre - La Tabacalera - features this stunning collaborative piece between Sabek, Koctel and Malaysian artist Kenji Chai. Anyone who knows me knows that bright cartoon style pieces immediately attract my attention and have me walking off mid-conversation to have a closer look and get some photos, sorry...

La Tabacalera #1

I visited Madrid recently for the first time for a short weekend break, although none of the trips I take these days really feel like a break as I am constantly in 'work' mode. Work being street art hunting of course, not my real job, that's forgotten about before I've even left the building... One... Continue Reading →

Weekly round up – 3 of the best

I'm back again with the weekly round up and for the second week in a row it's a day late as I spent yesterday travelling back from the excellent Nuart 2018 in my home town of Aberdeen. That and the fact that I'm rarely organised enough to write these things at least partly in advance. This week... Continue Reading →

Street art Lisbon #5

I can't repeat it enough that Lisbon was the most incredible place I've been too for street art. The sheer variety of artists and styles on display was almost overwhelming and definitely too much to take in over such a short trip. I NEED to go back! This week's piece is by two artists who's...

Interview with Dako

I've not had the chance to do an interview for a little while so it's nice to share this one with you from a personal fav from the streets of Barcelona - Dako. I hope you enjoy you reading his words as much as I did. Hi Dako how are you? Tell us a little about... Continue Reading →

Wednesday wall of fame #6

It's a double header on this week's Wednesday wall mainly because I found two Japon pieces the same morning and I couldn't pick one and leave the other so I'm sharing both! I'm not a big burner guy, I think I've said this before, some I like, some I don't, but having watched writers create from... Continue Reading →
