German artist Hendrik ‘ECB’ Beikirch has painted in Bushwick with and as part of Robots Will Kill for many years. A recent return visit was inspiration to look back in my archive for photos of past work painted – these images stretch back to 2008.

It’s always a pleasure to photograph Cern‘s work… here’s a selection of some murals painted around New York this year. His colorful flora and fauna (kitties!!) always put a smile on my face.

Triple Play: Lister

Australian artist Anthony Lister’s been very busy in the weeks leading up to his solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, opening tomorrow night. It’s been a while since we last featured him here, but I’m glad to report he’s showing his former hometown some love by completing a number of murals in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Here are three of the five seven he’s done so far:

Triple Play: Chris Stain & Billy Mode

Artists Chris Stain and Billy Mode extended their long-standing collaboration to include 13 youths from creative-arts youth development organization Cre8tive YouTH*ink in their process. The result? Sign Language, a stunning mural on the side of 267 Pacific Street (at Smith Street), based on a photograph by legendary street photographer Martha Cooper.

In New York for Rochester’s Wall/Therapy festival and the Wooster Collective’s 10th anniversary show at Jonathan Levine Gallery, the globetrotting Belgian artist Roa spent a couple of days relaxing in Brooklyn. Wednesday night he completed this coyote piece on the exterior of the newly relocated Pandemic Gallery.
