In Aryz’s recent, enormous murals, the painter is able to emulate the loose traits of a pencil or crayon sketch. The effect is deceptively simple, with the artist’s broad strokes and figurative decisions creating a kinetic and striking final product. The artist was previously featured here, showcasing a style that varies from his current approach.
The murals of Dimitris Taxis recall his experience in both comics and cinematography.

Recent sites include Italy and his native Poland.
Insa recently crafted a mural that comes alive when viewed through his app, GIF-iti, for the D&AD design festival in London. Resembling a computer desktop, complete with the folders “Final Revision,” “Definitely Last Final Revision,” and “Absolutely Last Final Revision,” the project is packed with humor and vibrancy. The process recalls the work of MOMO and more recently, mapping projects.
