Transformative work by South African artist Faith47. Her first solo show, Aqua Regalia – Chapter Two, runs from November 19th to December 19th at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City. “Aqua Regalia” refers to the alchemical process of dissolving gold. Using a variety of materials and techniques (graphite, spray paint, ink, photography, collage, found objects), Faith’s work is concerned with the valuation and transformation of things that have been lost or overlooked.

LATA 65 is introducing older citizens of Lisbon to graffiti. With the help of established street artists, attendees of the workshop learn the history of street art, create their own stencils/tags, and are taken out into the city to make their mark. The project aims to create a sense of solidarity and dispel the assumptions that tend to surround street art and graffiti culture. More images of the participants and their work below.
Lisbon-based Portuguese street artist Odeith has been playing with perspective in his anamorphic artworks for over a decade now. These incredible pieces could easily be achieved with 3D software but there is just enough imperfection to reveal the artist’s hand and give the paintings an incredible energy. Love to come across one of these in person.

Invader has spent years hiding his ceramic creations all over the globe but last month he sent one somewhere new – space! Well, actually to be honest I’m not sure if this technically qualifies as space. Does it? Would this be the stratosphere? Is that something? In any case, it was attached to a balloon and it went… somewhere. Video below!
