Maya Hayuk Colorfully Cross Hatches With Rollers In Toronto

Posted on October 28, 2014

New images today from Toronto where muralist Maya Hayuk completed an enormous multi-part kaleidoscopic piece at the Landsdowne Street underpass. Reprising the color palette you may most recently have seen for her “Chem Trails” composition on the Houston Street wall in New York, Hayuk rolled out the eye popping plaid for fall (and winter), a welcome contrast to the cold grey skies that are coming, and which will hold no power here.

“It’s about 300 feet long and more than 20 feet high at the tallest parts,” she says. Completed entirely by hand with cans and rollers Maya gives this stretch a lot of angular, drippy,  jarring color to alert the senses and make your brain come alive.

“Natura Morta” with Dissenso Cognitivo and NemO’s in Italy

Posted on October 27, 2014

Two Street Artists named Dissenso Cognitivo and NemO’s created this slicing critique of mankind for the Restart Festival 2014 in Imola, Italy that took place over 3 days in the end of September.

“Natura Morta” takes inspiration from the traditional “still life” that artists usually apply to fruit, food, household items, even taxidermy – and instead objectifies the human as something to be pulled apart and studied. NemO’s typically casts an unsympathetic eye toward the homosapien, featuring him as a feckless desperate loser full of fallibility, blinded by his own selfish instincts.

Here too the new piece “alludes to a humanity that has pillaged and transmuted natural resources, killing all them and himself too,” says the artist.  And when you learn that Earth has lost half of its wildlife in the past 40 years, one is inclined to agree that we are actively planning a dim end for ourselves.

“Symmetrically, nature as biological system (from Greek bios: life) dies because of destructive human mania,” say the artists, and our collective behavior “opens the door to a dramatic and bleak future.” Not sure if this grotesque depiction of a dissected human will result in a new discovery about our nature, but “Natura Morta” does open the mind, and heart, and throat…

Happy Monday!

“The Nevercrew and I are the first ever people from outside of Egypt who painted in downtown Cairo, which had its rise in Street Art during the last 4 years and during the revolution. The military is back in charge now and the art on the streets came to a stop since you will end up in prison when they stop you (we had permission for this.” – Bustart
