Returning to artistic pursuits she discovered street art while living in Amsterdam and then says she “moved to Hong Kong to rediscover her roots, and quell her restlessness.” It was the best move she could have made she says: “every day is an adventure and I’m just really curious where this is heading.” Undoubtedly drawing on her more technical pursuits Widewalls says Caratoes sees herself more as a space designer and that her flowing, tenuous linework has a hypnotic gestural quality. For the 2016 Shine Festival in St. Petersburg, Florida, Caratoes did “On the Road” at 21St and 1st Ave S in memory of poet and novelist Jack Kerouac who’s short life ended in St. Pete almost a half-century ago. @caratoes​ @shineonstpete @wdwllsscenefromthesidewalk:  March 10, 2017“ON THE ROAD”By CaratoesBelgium-born Cara To, aka Caratoes, started drawing as a child before turning for a while to biochemistry and game design.

Wood Blvd. in Los Angeles has built an enviable reputation photographing art for fine artists and illustrators, and producing quality prints. Tristan Eaton and Esao Andrews began 2015 with this January wall for the front of the operation, Eaton commenting that he essentially provided the wardrobe for Esao’s beautiful features. A School of Visual Arts illustration grad, originally from East Mesa, Arizona, Esao is a relatively newcomer to working on walls. He told Contrast Magazine about some of the challenges with the transition and credits Eaton with helping him out “with tricks and pointers.” When the two were done with “Illuminaughty” they worked with Static Medium to produce and sell a limited edition giclée print of the work—and a few lucky recipients got versions of the print with additional hand embellishment by the artists. @tristaneaton  @esao @contrastmag​ @staticmedium @scenesfromthesidewalkscenefromthesidewalk:  January 19, 2017“ILLUMINAUGHTY”By Tristan Eaton and Esao AndrewsStatic Medium on James M.

While some Koreans criticized the work for “selling out Korean culture to ‘foreigners,’” praise for the work has been far more common. “It is not the unusual combination of a black woman wearing Korean traditional outfit, but how the two get along with each other effortlessly that people find attractive in Shim’s murals,” reports Korea Daily. “The harmony in his murals suggest the direction our multicultural society should progress toward.” This installment in the series was done at E. 4th and Seaton Streets in the LA Arts District for the Container Yard, and the words behind the young woman read “the flower has bloomed” relating to flower references also accompanying several other of his pieces. @royaldog_ @thecontaineryard @scenesfromthesidewalkscenefromthesidewalk:  January 20, 2017“THE FLOWER HAS BLOOMED”by Royal DogIn late 2016 Korean artist Chris Chanyang Shim, aka Royal Dog, found himself on a mission to express his perspectives on multiculturalism by doing a series of paintings of African American women and girls wearing the traditional Korean dress, the Hanbok.

He completed his first commissioned mural at age 11 and eventually set up his own company, Positive Arts. His work now focuses more on female faces than graffiti, but he still incorporates the same spontaneous abstractions and energy that have always defined his work, and led it to be described as “surrealist graffiti art for the soul.” In Wynwood, Miami in 2015 he collaborated on this NW 1st Place wall with Love Pusher (who’s work is hidden on the lower-left) and Amsterdam artist David Louf, aka Mr. June. Louf tried his hand at advertising in 2000 and quickly realized he was not cut out for the world of big business. Making a career out of his art has not always been easy but eventually University of the Arts Utrecht recognized his colorful and multidimensional work and invited him to teach the next generation while perfecting his unique take on graffiti, graphic design, and abstract art. @mrcenzone @davidjunelouf  @lovepusher  @scenesfromthesidewalkscenefromthesidewalk:  January 28, 2017WYNWOOD, MIAMIby Mr. June and Mr Cenz (with Love Pusher)London artist Mr Cenz says he’s been scribbling on surfaces since discovering hip-hop and graffiti in the 80s.

His flat, hard-edged compositions include both geometric and organic forms that “seem to be floating around each other evoking a sense of depth, as though the shapes were eternally suspended in space.” Torezan’s work has been exhibited in prestigious museums and galleries across the U.S. as well as in Europe and Brazil. Painting on a variety of surfaces, his work commonly done on a scale small enough to hang on walls, this work at Miami Ave. and NW 33rd St. provides clear evidence of how well Torezan’s work translates to the mural—hopefully we’ll be seeing more of his work on our streets. @torezan1 @artbasel​ @wynwoodmurals @scenesfromthesidewalkscenefromthesidewalk:  February 2, 2017ART BASEL MIAMI, 2016by Torezan Brazilian-born Amauri Torezan says he is inspired by representations of the future and abstract art of the mid-20th century.

His vibrant color palettes and freehand spray paint style is brilliant up close and becomes even more beautiful and cohesive after taking a step back to appreciate the full scope of his talent.” Painted from his own photos Walker’s portraits of women, whether strong or fragile, are completed entirely freehand without stencils or brushes. To give his work the kind of detail that stands up to examination Walker instead has developed a signature multi-layered style using countless lines, clashing colors, translucent drips, and decaying letterforms.
