BSA Special Feature: Herakut at Nigg Bay

Jon Reid takes us on a trip down to the sea from Aberdeen, Scotland to see Jasmine from Herakut creating in a secret little spot. “As the sea lapped against the coastal rocks Hera quickly sketched out her idea and began to lay down her distinctive lines. As the seagull figure began to emerge we all looked on with wonder. For a week of special moments this was a real highlight for me and a memory I’ll always cherish.”

Extra points for spotting Evan Pricco and Ian Cox.

Maga Ilustration for 12 + 1 in Barcelona

You have already seen stills from this wall by Maga for Contorno Urbano in our posting from April 22nd called Anna Maga for “12 + 1” Project In Barcelona.

Today we have a small video of her determined style along with a soundtrack that makes you think of a murder mystery.

“A fan of graffiti jams, roller skating and figurative painting, Maga Anna is a local illustrator, mural painter, children’s educator, and commercial designer.”

Csaw X All Teeth in Abandoned Tribute

UCIT “VIETNAM” – The adventures of Optimistuey. By Justin Smith

It’s important to try to be optimistic, and UCIT memeber Optimistuey has it right there in his name.

Here he smacks a few walls, one in the most optimistic of hues, in Vietnam.


Order55 X Sydney from Dom West.

Seb Humphries akc Order55 spends a rainy day taking us for a ride into his hallucinatory patterned clouds, perhaps illustrating how graffiti sometimes easily moves into contemporary art.

Shai Dahan new Ted Talk “Beyond Borders”

The keynote is about my travel into Palestine.  Considering what is going on there –  Being that everyone is talking about the violence, this video can reflect a bit of light on how there are some ways to find peace.  It may not find the sort of wide peace we hope to all gain there, but through the message in the keynote, I hope people can see that Israel and Palestine can share a common beauty: Street-art.” Shai Dahan
