BSA Special Feature: Brazilian Street Artist Eder Muniz
Eder Muniz joins the Wall\Therapy mural festival this year with his magic infused fantasy forms that have been blanketing his hometown of Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. The self-taught artist goes by the name of “Calangos de Rua” (Street Lizard) back home but clearly that must be an endearing term as his sentiments toward humans and nature are anything but reptilian. Here is a profile made of the artist three years ago that gives some good insight into his inspirations and working style.
David Flores Nelson Mandela Mural Project
This week was Nelson Mandela’s birthday and we were reminded of the great mural David Flores did of the man two years ago. Done to commemorate his 95th, we remember him through his own words on his 97th in this video by Banded Arts.
New TED Talk from eL Seed
“Born in France to Tunisian parents, eL Seed delights in juggling multiple cultures, languages and identities. Not least in his artwork, which sets Arabic poetry in a style inspired by street art and graffiti. In this quietly passionate talk, the artist and TED Fellow describes his central ambition: to create art so beautiful it needs no translation.”
