Santa On The Way
mixed media 3,5 x 3,3 m. , work prepared for LAC Lagos, Portugal | 2012
Brazilian artist Andre Muniz Gonzaga is a street artist who is recognized for his paintings on irregular surfaces including large-scale rocks. His portraits on degraded and porous surfaces take place in site specific public spaces. The artist also creates works on canvas, however his rock portraits stand out because of their unusual contrasting effect of painting on the shape and texture of a stone or irregular surface. He choses his sites carefully, these are often in poverty stricken and run down urban areas, he works with the preexisting contours and shapes of these surfaces, he then adds the facial characteristics accordingly.Via:hifructosemag

City project by Mark Jenkins
We love this awesome Tug of War street art installation created by Mark Jenkins, who is currently in Katowice, Poland participating in the Katowice Street Art Festival. If this doesn’t stop pedestrians in their tracks then they aren’t paying attention. One of the many awesome things that the art of Mark Jenkins has taught us is to pay attention to building ledges.
