After his stint in Bilbao, Suso33 has left a nice gift behind for the Basque city, in the form of a mural. Thanks to the efforts put forth by SC Gallery in conjunction with Art Management, La Vieja , a Bilbao neighbourhood, will now be enjoying this street intervention from close up, on Calle Concepción number 13 to be exact. Al Borde Films took care of putting together this video that we’ve posted above which portrays Suso’s work in context.
Let’s take a look at the latest news from the Montana Colors Australia blog.
Poison is a writer from Athens who’s gaining a lot of attention lately in graffiti related media. In fact, he was also present in the last edition of the Neapolitan festival, Back to The Style.
With a classic style and strong, unexpected color combinations, the Greek has carved out a place for himself on the international scene, despite the use of a recurring name.

Terror 161, AKA J.Son (New York 1958) started painting the New York streets and trains in the early 70’s. Martha Cooper (Baltimore 1942) began taking photos of graffiti at the end of that same decade and published ‘Subway Art‘ in 1984.

Veteran graffiti writers Chris “Daze” Ellis and Alan Ket from New York has made a visit to Haiti to collaborate during a project called “Haiti Walls”. A project created by the artist Peter Tunney who in collaboration with Artists for Peace and Justice aims to bring known names from the art world to paint for the organization on different locations of the globe. The video we will see presents the works of Daze and Ket, and it is the first episode of what is to come for this interesting event.
Early this May we announced the beginning of MURAL’H, an urban decoration project organized in L’Hospitalet del Llobregat (Barcelona, Spain) by Contorno Urbano. Kwets was the first artist involved and his remarkable intervention has finally been inaugurated. The Avenida Isabel la Católica tunnel has now been adorned with a spectacular mural with natural motifs that has made a significant improvement on the space. If all of the planned interventions are carried out at this level, the residents of L’Hospitalet should feel fortunate.
