Monkey Bird Crew in Lille, France and Their Largest Monkey/Bird Stencil

Monkey Bird Crew in Lille, France and Their Largest Monkey/Bird Stencil

The Bordeaux-based Street Art duo Monkey Bird Crew were in the northern French capital Lille in November to create their largest mural ever and today we have some exclusive shots of the enormous piece from the natural stencilists as they scaled the bricked wall and sprayed the new work.

Phototographer Aline Mairet tells us “This collaborative work was realized as part of the major cultural event called “Renaissance” (by Lille3000) and was built with the contribution and participation of the neighborhoods residents.”

It’s standard practice for Edouard and David to portray their chosen avatars of monkey and a bird – of many varieties – in a composition that shows their reliance on one another. Aline says that she sees the their inspiration as being derived “principally from sacred or lyrical works such as illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, and architectural ornamentation – as well as Japanese prints and fantastic illustrations from the ‘Arts and Crafts’ period.”

Hell’o Monster and M-City at the Urban Art Biennale in Lille, France

Hell’o Monster and M-City at the Urban Art Biennale in Lille, France

The Biennale Internationale d’Art Mural de Lille from the Collectif Renart is underway in this northern French city of Lille. The international mural festival held every two years boasts artists primarily from the city and region with a handful of artists from other countries.

This years installations continue from May through September, giving a generous leisurely pace without pretense to this program that features myriad styles influenced by graffiti, modern bohemian, D.I.Y., and a variety of fine art practices currently flowing in the larger street art scene.

“The guys who organized this Biennale are really working hard with a sense of generosity,” says photographer and occasional street art writer Aline Mairet of the mood in Lille. She also shares with BSA readers today her photographs of two recent walls from Poland’s M-City and the Brussels collective of Hell’O Monsters.

As it turns out, it appears that both have mined the imaginary monsters that frequent the modern mind, here at large in wooded areas. The invincible M-City is diverging from the industrial-mechanical themes that typically distinguish his massive stencil murals, here going figurative with a light beaming boulder throwing woodland dweller.

The Hell’O Monsters collective of Jérôme Meynen, Antoine Detaille, and François Dieltiens create a scene of two, dipping into mystic-folk-cartoon practices of artful representation on the Hellemme métro station. In other words, we don’t know what is going on here but it is attractive, and possibly frightful.

Miami in The House All Weekend

This weekend the fun is for Street Art in Miami and check out some of our recommendations (Best Miami Street Art: BSA Picks Awesomest for Basel ’12) for hoofing it around that we posted Wednesday. Tonight of course there are a number of grand opening parties/after parties (including Fountain), but really just being on the street is equally fun if not funner! Thanks for that adverb from 7 year old Darnell Wilsen of Brooklyn.

For a full listing of Art Fairs, Events and Street Murals click here and here.

But not all the fun is in Miami here are a few picks of what’s happening elsewhere in the world:

“Deck the Walls” at Stolen Space (London)

Greeting cards are a nice way to say Merry Christmas to Grandma, and for suburban white middle class families to distribute photos proving that their kids are not on drugs. This is Stolen Space Christmas Show celebrates greetings cards and holiday cheer with D*Face, Word to Mother, Will Barras and David Bray among others putting their own imprimatur on Christmas. Come on, Uncle Bert and Aunt Dolittle will be there, so comb your hair, put some shoes on and get out of the house!

“Rinse & Repeat” Group Show at Ambush (Sydney, Australia)

With a collection of Australian Graffiti and Street Art Artists, “Rinse & Repeat” finds its inspiration by taking a look at the Old Masters and re-interpreting them with their own styles and techniques. An interesting proposition albeit fraught with risks – there are a few good ones here though that will delight your academic/street sensibilities. Included in the line up are: Adnate (AWOL Crew), Bridge Stehli, Cam Wall, Carl Steffan, Deams (AWOL Crew), Fintan Magee, Guido van Helten, Phibs, Shannon Crees,  Slicer (AWOL Crew) , Team and Teazer.

Skewville in France, Quel Surprise! (Lille, France)

Hope they realize what they have gotten themselves into, but Vertikal Gallery is hosting Brooklyn Street Art collective Skewville for a solo show entitled “Be Inside”. Considering we have had one or two Lillians in Brooklyn putting work up on the streets over the last few years, this sounds like a cultural exchange program of some kind, right?

Jaye Moon at Paik Hae Young (Seoul)

New York Street Artist Jaye Moon is in Seoul, Korea on an Art Residency Invitation and tonight his her solo exhibition with her “Lego Tree House” opening tonight at the Paik Hae Young Gallery.
