SatOne was invited to cooperate with a project seminar at the academic high school in Kirchseeon, near Munich. During this year`s seminar, it was the task of the students to support the realization of this project, look for sponsors, to organize the presentation and to document the emergence of the mural. SatOne realized his new work “NEUGIER“ on a 65 square-meter wall in the hall of the high school. He captured the movement of architectural elements like the spiral staircase and natural elements of the surrounding environment.It was the goal to create sustainability that leads to motivation and free interpretations of the students. The mural was officially unveiled by the head of district authorities and school management. See more images after the jump.

When the sun shines in Moscow, things happen. In some cases, people that have moved on, step back into their old realities to walk the steps they once journeyed. BAM CONTENT from Russia was lucky enough to catch exactly this moment on film. The moment where Aske from Moscow stepped out of a 6 year “Letter Retirement” to push some visual boundaries with letters once again. And with fellow writers Pantone, Petro and Slak, he was in good company. Without it being discussed, the color scheme for the day unofficially became the flag colors of Pantone’s home town, Valencia. A trivial point, but an integral one should this project become re-occurring and the artists take up the same challenge next time in Valencia, using the colors of the Russian flag? Geography aside, fresh paintings were created and styles burned as the sun beat down on a wall in Moscow.

Case from the Maclaim crew stood up to a new challenge at the current Art (Re) Public project in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Swedish Artists YASH recently released a film titled Making Friends depicting a work he created this year for the Municipality of Ovanåker in Sweden. Located at the Southern School in Edsbyn, YASH depicts a beautiful image of a young girl cautiously and respectfully hold a small bird as it appears they are making friend with each other. What adds to the impressiveness of the image above its technical precision, is the sheer scale of what is actually a young girl and a small bird. Check out the results here.

Many artists that use spray cans see themselves as painters. But what if you use paint and spraycans and define yourself as a drawer? Dome from Karlsruhe Germany does just that. In his recent work „Drift Away“ for the METROPOLINK 2016 festival in Germany, Dome attempts to stay true to his drawing roots by telling a visual story and not steering too far away from form. Check out his artwork and how it unveiled here.
