D*FACE

VIA @dface_official

Paris has some strong museum game but I highly recommend you put the 13th district on your must see list… its open 24/7, free to all and there’s no queues… I’m very proud to be part of this new era of Paris history along with a line up of amazing artists… All thanks to the Mayor of the 13th and Mehdi @galerie_itinerrance Respect to all involved. @rebelsalliance @sprayingbricks

RONE

VIA @r_o_n_e

When I saw this location I knew it was going to be difficult to paint but the texture & obstructions make it the dream canvas for my work. ? @tonyowczarek ——– The Alpha Project. Over the last few months I’ve been working on a series of walls in an old paper mill. This was a dream project; a giant abandoned site where I could paint whatever I saw fit. Big thanks to @taubmans for supplying the paint and to @yarrabend_ for giving me access.#rone #ronealpha #yarrabend

FINDAC

VIA @findac

So yeah… this just happened. I’m sure it’s my biggest wall to date but others say no, but def my first time focussing on Eastern European traditional clothing, utilising a beautifully bruised and battered building facade to dictate the style of painting and receiving lots of love (and treats) from locals both young and old. #bratislavastreetartfestival was super tiring but an absolute blast. Special thanks to model/muse @lindagunisovafor her help in getting the right look/photo.

JR

VIA @nytimes

In #Tecate, Mexico, a little boy with dark hair and curious eyes peers carefully over the barrier wall that borders Baja, California. Rising up almost 70 feet, his hands seemingly grip the barrier tightly. This is the French artist @jr’s latest installation, and his first in Mexico — but it’s only visible from the California side of the border.
