With the weather starting to feel like a 'street art weather', there has been some proper creative energy flowing on the streets. Leading off this week's review is RUN's impressive new wall in London. Named 'Phrenology', all in monochrome, the piece stands out with its complexity, clear lines, captivating and attracting attention and provoking communication.

We have always admired VinZ for his bold original pieces, that are everything but quiet and predictable. This fresh one is from the artist's visit in New Jersey. Named 'The Thinker in Oil', the work is thought-provoking and visually striking. Image via StreetArtNews.
