I’ve been a fan of James SHEONE Schoules for years and years. I suppose I was introduced to his work via his many collaborations with UK streetwear heavyweights Addict. Arrested Motion have some great photos of his recent work in Gambia. The British artist visited 14 villages and managed to get some paint on some walls at the same time.

SOLEdxb is the Middle East’s “first sneaker festival” and it’s going down tomorrow in Dubai. My buddy Raad is involved in the project, and Shark Toof will be there too, doing some live painting.

LA Walls 03

Belgian street artist ROA seems to have worked in some rather far-flung corners of the planet so far. Luckily, this wide distribution of work also includes the streets of LA. I recently noticed that ROA really went to town, down at the corner of Imperial St and Jesse St, in the Warehouse District of Downtown Los Angeles. [View Photos]

The New Art Car

Jeff Soto paints alongside a specially customized version of the Chevy Sonic. The tiny hatchback has been fitted out with robotic arms and spray cans, and even a nice little canon, so it makes a big impression. I’m happy to watch a car commercial if it’s mostly about Jeff’s art…Via Arrested Motion.
