Aquatic Graffiti with Old World Charm

On the streets and rivers of far western europe, incredible aquatically themed art is appearing on almost a weekly basis. Who is this mysterious artist? A Sheffield UK based guy going by the name Phlegm, we don’t know much about his back story, but we do know this: his art is exceedingly unique and beautiful. Creating huge, sprawling pieces which cover the sides of old decrepit buildings and the walls of brick lined river ways, his art is decidedly aquatic in nature.

Dreyk the Pirate: a Unique Graffiti Artist

Walking the streets of Athens, one encounters many different graffiti styles: from badly written declarations of everlasting devotion to a sports team or political leaning, to sworn love confessions and small stencils. Sadly, it seems that everyone qualifies as a graffiti “artist”, given that they have enough money to buy a marker or spray paint. Few emerge from this scene displaying a distinctive style and adorning athenian walls with something that truly makes our city more beautiful. One of the exceptions is Dreyk the Pirate.

Mosstika: Street Art Greens the Urban Jungle

When we think of street art we often think of dry concrete, spray paint cans and urban wastelands… but that’s not what you’ll find here. These creations have a drastically more “green” theme, striving to bring a bit of unexpected nature to the so-called urban jungle and in doing so a bit more life to its often weary inhabitants. The creations of gorilla street art collective Mosstika, each piece of art brings some literal green to the world, installing pieces of art with living grass and moss around the city.

We Love Friday! – Graffiti Around the World

Happy Friday folks! Famous street artist Banksy once said, “Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don’t come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they’re having a piss.” Unless you live in a perfect suburban bubble and never leave, you’re bound to have seen some graffiti that has made you chuckle. It gives cities character and brightens up dark streets, so this week we wanted to showcase some of the best graffiti captures on Instagram.
