On the Streets - A Weekly Round Up of the Freshest Global Street Art: 01 September

02/09/2013 21:26 BST | Updated 02/11/2013 09:12 GMT

This first September week is enlivened by a distinguishing plethora of art on the streets. Phlegm, Rone, Faith47, DALeast, ROA, Mag Magrela and Aryz, they all paint to create a stunning visual urban feast.

Our leading mural in Millie Kotseva's weekly review comes from elusive Phlegm, painted for the Bushwick collective in Brooklyn. Encompassed in his truly monochrome print style, the piece is an intricate combination of Phlegm's signature fantastical characters and real wild life. The balance of dreamworld- reality narrative is very subtle and well captured that makes the work to simply stand out.

Other 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.

Australian artist RONE, well-known for his emotional and elaborate large-scale portraits of beautiful women, was on a short visit in Portland, Oregon and the result is absolutely stunning.

Husband and wife artists duo Faith47 and DALeast never disappoint. Here are their last two murals in Montreal (Faith47) and in Herleen (DALEast) respectively, full of emotion art for thought.
