On the Streets - The Freshest Global Street Art - 6 December 2013

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.

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.

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.
