Shamsia Hassani: a young woman and the first street artist ever to emerge from the exhausted streets of Kabul, Afghanistan. Only 25 years old and teaches drawing at the Faculty of Fine Arts at Kabul University, her story just might challenge your views on graffiti - and on Afghan women.
Other notable walls come from in Bialystok, Poland, Cake in Brooklyn, BEST|EVER in Gambia, Banksy - somewhere in LA, Ron English in Brooklyn and Kidult in Paris.
The art world scene is often very male-dominated, especially the urban arts, therefore we have decided to balance it all by reviewing the works of five female artists, who, working in diverse media and style, are massively influential and constantly push the boundaries of the art form.
This week's featured wall is this sweet collaborative piece between renowned Barcelona-based artist Miss Van and Brazilian Ciro Schu in LA. This is not their first collab, in fact the artists spent the whole summer travelling around the world (London included), creating breath-taking works.
As we reach the end of the summer, we have some pretty notable and special walls to share with you. The highlight of Millie Kotseva's weekly review is this stunning piece by Blu in Rome. The mural strikes with its raw creativity and strong visual intensity. An absolute winner.
Notable walls come from David Shillinglaw in London, PEZ and Cranio newest collab in Barcelona, Ella and Pitr in St Etienne, France, The London Police in Kentucky, ARYZ in Rennes and Pablo Delgado in London. A full swing of vibrant worthy walls...
Notable walls come from Rone in Portland, Faith47 in Montreal, DALeast in Heerlen, Holland, ROA in Lagos, Mag Magrela in London and ARYZ in Cologne.
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.
Our first stop is sunny London where talented David Shillinglaw gave Dulwich a breath-taking mural, part of the Baroque the Streets Festival. Inspired by the classic Anthony van Dyck's ''Samson and Delilah'', the work strikes with its plasticity and depth of images, acquired through the delicate colour balance of the blues and the red. An absolute winner...
The end of another sunny summery week in August offers you a refined colourful selection of creativity and celebration of collaborative minds. Our leading mural in Millie's weekly review comes from NYC, where all-around Renaissance man (artist, toy designer and illustrator)Tristan Eaton delivers this impressively detailed portrait, inspired by the painter's love for comics.
Another huge 'family' wall comes from Stik in London. Super-sized, brighly coloured and highly stilized, the human figures Stik paints are surprisingly capable of conveying intense body language and complex emotions. We love this family themed piece under the Hungerford Bridge at the Southbank Centre.
This week saw not only soaring temperatures and real summer, but also a lot of colour and playfulness on a large scale on the streets.
This week Millie Kotseva's review of art on the streets is full of vivid colours and bold collaborations, starting from the sunny streets of London, w...
