Migrants Not Welcome

Banksy is for ages now constantly working on the highest level of civil disobedience. This stencil showing a group of pigeons holding anti-immigration banners towards an exotic-looking bird was quickly removed by the District Council of Clacton-on-Sea, England, which said someone had complained it was racist. Usually nothing to worry about, better removed than being stolen by art collectors.

Toon Bomb

Toronto-based artist Aiden Glenn transforms ordinary outdoor objects of his neighborhood into cute cartoon monsters. Well-placed teeths, tongues and googly eyes make it possible.

Art is Trash

The legendary Berlin-based Sechsenmaler has successfully demonstrated how to leave marks on trash, discarded objects and materials. Now, a suitable successor was just found. The following pictures are part of the London’13 series made by Francisco de Pájaro aka Art is Trash. The artist turned London’s garbage piles into bizarre monsters

Roadsworth

Don’t know how to say. Road Art? In 2001, Peter Gibson better known as Roadsworth sought to get the city of Montreal’s attention to build more cycle tracks. What began as a form of activism has transformed into this unique form of street art. The artist has modified roads, sidewalks, parking lots and many other types of asphalt surfaces. The result: World’s most confusing road traffic signs and regulations.

The Gum Wall

Covered with thousands of pieces of chewing gum, the Gum Wall of Seattle is the best thing you can do with old flavourless chewing gums. Important is the colour! The house has even a Wikipedia entry.

Homage To The Lost Spaces

Mike Hewson’s public installation series Homage To The Lost Spaces on buildings that are listed for imminent demolition is a wonderful example for re-urbanizing cultural spaces. The rest of the world should be imitating this!

AutumN

It meant »AutumN«, I call it »SprinG«, even if I made an early start. I’m longing for the days when no coat is required and colour comes into the game again. Photo by 0331C.
