This week's 'On the Streets' is not just another hefty review of Art Basel Week, but a surprisingly balanced overview of some of the most inspirational, moving and vibrant works from around the globe. Leading off is D*Face with his newest mural in Shibuya district, Tokyo. A tribute to Roy Lichtenstein's iconic 'Girl with Ribbon', (now hung in Tokyo's National Gallery), the piece is a crafty fusion of pop and subversive imagery. Take a closer look below to a truly mighty wall!
Australian artist James Cochran, aka Jimmy C, best known for his elaborate and distinctive drip painting style, does not disappoint - this fresh narrative, clearly influenced by Japanese landscapes, is a true delight. Image via juliiea.
We cannot but mention the work of environmentally - conscious East-London native artist Jonesy, whose cast sculptures, strike with their intricate delicacy and high-level of skills. Image via monoprixx.
Now when all eyes are on Miami's current Art Basel edition, Escif changes the perspective and provokes us to take a closer, more thoughtful look at the rest of the world. His newest 'Miami' piece relies on minimalism and strong concept- a combination that succeeds every time! Images via StreetArtNews.
After Escif's critical look at Art Basel in Florida, here is how we saw it - Faith47, Miss Van, Reka One and RONE all contributed to this year's Wynwood walls, bringing emotions, colour and their incredible talent to Miami. Take a look for yourselves.
