D*Face recently landed in sunny Las Vegas and began working on this huge new piece for the Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas, bringing his signature imagery.

Evident by last year’s successful program and the many murals that still exist on the streets of downtown today, the urban surroundings of the Life is Beautiful Festival provide a perfect backdrop for the eclectic and semi-permanent street art program featuring some of the biggest names in the international street art scene. Curated by Charlotte Dutoit (JustKids), the street art program will transform the festival landscape into a magical art-inspired playground to give people a playful and unexpected escape into art.

Shepard Fairey: Paz Y Libertad @ CAC Malaga by Spraying Bricks

October 25th, 2014

2-11

In 1987 Andre Rene Roussimoff aka Andre The Giant drew the biggest WWF crowd at the the Pontiac Silver Dome. Two years later American street artist, Shephard Fairey, would create one of the most globally recognised images of our time, based on the legendary wrestler…’Andre The Giant Has A Posse’. This developed into the OBEY campaign, which is a cause to reaction and encouraging people to question their surroundings.

4-12

From stickers, posters and murals in the street, to installations, gallery and museum pieces, Shepard’s can be seen all over the world. The subject of this particular piece painted in Malaga is of Shep’s wife, Amanda. The mural took three days to complete with the original notion of painting ‘PEACE AND JUSTICE’, however, due to a Spanish right wing neo-fascist political party who had highjacked phrase, was changed to PAZ Y LIBERTAD (translation – Peace and Freedom)

6-12

Towards the end of 2013, Centro De Arte Contemporáneo (CAC) and Maus hosted an array of international artists from around the globe to part-take in the regeneration and establishment of the Soho Arts Quarter, PAZ Y LIBERTAD Málaga mural by Shepard Fairey is located at the rear of the CAC Málaga Museum. This is the second in the series from CAC Malaga

CYRCLE: OVERTHRONE! Pooring Reign by Spraying Bricks

October 17th, 2014

CYRCLE take oppressive imagery to create hope and inspiration. Revealing complex ideologies in their simple forms, CYRCLE are combining the aesthetic of classic romanticism with alchemical symbolism. They strive to highlighting dark areas of society and playfully exposing those grey areas of life.

Back in February this year we had the privilege of meeting two crazy Cali dudes…Rabi and Davey, aka Doug and Doug from art collective CYRCLE. Having just come fresh from PowWow Hawaii it was no surprise that the British weather was a shock to the system. This particular piece was painted over the course of 5 days and nights to mark the launch of their debut London solo show ‘OVERTHRONE! Pooring Reign‘ at StolenSpace Gallery early on in the year. The image depicts the statue ‘Rape of Polyxena’ by Pio Fedi.
