This week's On the Streets is full of art that carries the summer spirit. Leading off the review is Pixel Pancho with his newest wall, painted as part of the Italian Memorie Urbane Street Art Festival in Gaeta. The work is a beautiful depiction in a signature for the artist painterly style, reminiscent of Michelangelo's classic composition in his 'Pieta'. See below for more detailed shots of the mural.

South-African artist Faith47 was recently in Scotland(Glasgow), where she took part in the Incommon Commonwealth Project. Her work, entitled 'Oh, the miracle of empty hands' stands out with the delicateness of the imagery and the subtle, almost subdued colour palette.

Using derelict buildings, city crumbling walls, shop shutters and windows as his canvas, Spaniard Borondo brings his refined touch to the great outdoor too. His newest work, which is done on a river boat somewhere on the Canal in London, feels so realistic that it makes us believe we are all part of that same picture. Image via the artist.
