Born in Poland, but later a transplant into London 13 years ago to pursue his passion of art and music, Airborne Mark is a graffiti artist by day, a rapper by night. His street art is truly unique because he incorporates origami as the underlying theme in both his art and his music. As you can see from the video, he starts with a folded origami piece, in this instance from the classic Hayao Miyazaki film, My Neighbor Totoro, and then begins the process of redefining that piece on his new canvas... the streets of London. I love that he is able to reimagine the original origami piece, while also still incorporating all of the shading and tonality of the folds and creases as he paints.

I love geometrical forms in general, but then having them built with low budget materials such as cardboard then having them displayed in the streets of New York just makes these sculptures look so bizarre, beautiful and sexy. Alienated extensions of the city that just seem to naturally grow and bloom in the streets and on the roofs. What you can see here are several uncommissioned public installations done in 2011 by fantastic Clemens Behr in the East Village, China Town, Soho and Brooklyn.
German artist Clemens Behr created several installations for the Get Set Art Festival that took place October 4th-10th, 2010 in Porto, Portugal. Working with the simplest materials and basic geometric forms, Behr creates complex ephemeral architectures that blur the lines between 2D painting and 3D objects.
Sten and Lex are based out of Italy and they create some pretty intense work producing what they call 'Poster Stencils' since they are both stencil and poster at the same time. These large format posters have such a heavily detailed process I decided to showcase their video so you can see for yourself.
