In the next couple of months, a few of Oakland’s buildings will be getting a beautiful face lift. Talented painter, artist, and muralist Joshua Mays will be working on a series of 4 murals which he calls BEACON and hopes to finish by October 1st, 2014. In his signature dreamlike style, with soft colors, rich details, and luscious layers ripe with feminine energy, Mays will transform old buildings into conversation pieces. From his drawings to his paintings and especially his murals, there is so much to see that even after 10 minutes of deep stares, you can still discover new things. Mays also has murals up in Philadelphia, Denver, Washington D.C., Portland, and Mexico City. [Read more...]

Street artist RONE’s newest work makes us do a double take. Painted on a five-story building at Nollendorfplatz in Berlin, the piece looks perfect from a distance, yet proves rough and dripping upon closer inspection. One example of the Melbourne-based artists’ extensive street portraits, the mural embodies RONE’s efforts to “locate the friction point between beauty and decay, the lavish and despoiled, creating an iconic form of urban art with a strongly emotional bent.” [Read more...]

Spraypainted Street Art by DALeast Looks Like Three Dimensional Shards of Metal

1 Street Art by DALeast

When he was just three years old, Chinese artist DALeast prophetically told his mother that he would be an artist and travel around the world one day. Now 29, DALeast, who keeps his real identity anonymous, is doing just that. His murals have a very unique style- although they are spray painted on, they look like three dimensional sculptures made of thousands of metallic splinters, that explode at points of impact. DALeast has created gigantic images of wildlife, but also humans- like astronauts and scuba divers- and even a car crashing into a pipe. He has travelled all over the world and created murals in his hometown of Wuhan in China, Cape Town, Miami, New York and London. He imagines each piece in his head before he brings it to life on the wall. [Read more...]

If you’ve ever traveled through Asia, chances are you’ve seen beautiful, lush, vibrant green rice paddys, but most likely they were a solid color. Every year, the farmers in Japan take it up a notch with these gigantic living murals made by planting different species of rice in the shapes of iconic figures like the Mona Lisa and Napoleon Bonaparte, ladybugs, and anime characters. They use varieties of rice that grow white, light green, bright green, or black to create the massive images. To have the perfect shape once the rice has grown takes a lot of patience and planning, as you can see in the time lapse video below. [Read more...]
