Summer is at its peak, resulting in frantic painting on the streets at large. True to our fascination with eclectic works, Millie Kotseva chose Brazilian artist Mag Magrela's most recent piece in Lisbon to be the leading one in this week's review. The mural stands out with the richness and depth of its imagery, and how harmonious the exposure of colour against the grey architecture of the crumbled wall is.

A true masterpiece on a wall.

Other notable walls come from Herakut in Frankfurt, RAE and Judith Supine in Brooklyn, INTI in Slovakia, Swoon in Grottaglie and Cranio in sunny London. A plethora of urban euphoria caught on the city walls...

It is not difficult to name ''Something better than Perfection'' because this new Herakut wall has it all - perfection, depth and tender feelings. One of our favourites from their Giant Story Book Project so far.
