If you dig graffiti, and/or have done it/do it, you probably know of The Mac. Dude has been ahead of the game for longer than I can remember. Here’s more proof that he’s better than you are:
Charlie Layton is a illustrator and designer who spends his mornings with a cup of coffee and a dry-erase marker creating awesome works like these. Great way to start the day, if you ask me.
Check out Snug One get busy on this insanely detailed mural. Time-lapsed for your viewing pleasure.
As someone who loves to rock a can when it comes to art, it is extremely relieving to see that Snug is using stencils for some of that insanely small detail work. The piece is over-the-top skill wise, but I’m sure some graffiti snobs will dock points for that. Not that anyone should give a shit.
Bottom line: Snug One killed this fookin wall. Big-up!
Montana Spray Paint (Australia) welcomes graffiti artist Peque to the team. Not hard to tell why after checking out this video:
I think it’s safe to say that Peque is one badass aerosol artists. His choice of colors is sick, and those animal characters are off the hook. Not to mention the fine detail work (alligator teeth!).
Mad props to Peque on this one.
Mear One’s latest mural is straight up badass. Here’s a narrated version that gives some background story as the painting unfolded:
What’s crazy, is the amount of insanity that continued after the painting was finished. Almost immediately, somebody wrote “No to anti-antisemitism” over it. Not long after a couple of different tags were hit over it, someone decided to white wall the central image.
I guess some people don’t like any anti-greed imagery in their neighborhoods. What’s strange, is how out of context art can be taken. I didn’t see anything but a mural that clearly represented the ultra-elite money hoarders keeping the working class down…while the world burns in the background.
Too bad the shit got dissed. Either way, big up to Mear on the effort and the execution.
Shok1 continues to amaze. Here’s his take on the @ symbol…giving it the 3D treatment. To anyone that’s actually tried their hand at spray painting, you gotta give it up to homeboy’s insanely clean lines. No overspray anywhere. Some of that fine detail work is just mind-blowing.
Shok1 is keeping that graffiti bar nice and high for the rest of us.
