Urban Art Recap, June 2012

Urban Art Recap, June 2012

Similar to the latest Urban Art Link-Tips, it’s been a long time since the last Urban Art Recap was published in September 2011. Nonetheless, I’d like to give you a short summary about the five most popular street art, graffiti and urbanism things on Urban Art Core in June 2012…

  1. Fin DAC’s Female Stencil Art Series
    London-based stencil artist Fin DAC worked hard on his latest female stencil art series (see above), combining hand-cut single-layer stencils with freehand spitting. With that, Fin again gave some beauty to the world!
  2. Street Lamp Light Switch
    Definitely one of the best interventional ideas in June came from Berlin’s creative studio Cheesecake Powerhouse, who installed a street lamp light switch in the streets of Germany’s capital.
  3. Mr. Brainwash Hype Machine in London
    It was also in June, when love-hated Mr. Brainwash started his hype machine in London by putting up works showing The Beatles and The Queen…
  4. Urban Art EFX in Amsterdam
    June 21st, the international urban art exhibition Urban Art EFX opened its doors in Amsterdam! The festival is still running, so make sure to check it out when you’re in the Netherlands!
  5. Urban Hacktivism: The Biggest Football Field in the World
    And of course, there was a lot footie going on in Europe. In addition to the FIFA Euro 2012, French urban hacktivist Florian Rivière created “the biggest football field in the world” together with some volunteers!

That’s it so far. These were the five most popular posts here on Urban Art Core in June 2012! Make sure not to miss one of them…
