Tristan Eaton, How & Nosm, and Cyrcle Collaborate on New Walls in Brooklyn

Tristan Eaton (HF Vol. 34) is such a versatile painter, his collage-like murals often include a combination of typography, realistic portraiture, illustration, and patterns — all rendered freehand with spray paint. His ability to mix and match various styles within a single, cohesive image lends his work well to collaborations, like the ones he completed over the course of the past week with fellow street artists Cyrcle and How & Nosm in Brooklyn.

Tristan Eaton (HF Vol. 34) is such a versatile painter, his collage-like murals often include a combination of typography, realistic portraiture, illustration, and patterns — all rendered freehand with spray paint. His ability to mix and match various styles within a single, cohesive image lends his work well to collaborations, like the ones he completed over the course of the past week with fellow street artists Cyrcle and How & Nosm in Brooklyn.

Though Cyrcle’s work is typically clean and design-oriented and How & Nosm’s overflows with monochromatic, whimsical characters, each artist duo found a way to meld their compositions with that of Eaton’s on two perpendicular walls on either side of the same building. While Eaton’s wall with Cyrcle is blue-hued and futuristic, his piece with How & Nosm features the coiled outline of a snake jam-packed with dozens of multicolored designs. Hi-Fructose stopped by the walls just as the artists had wrapped up their painting process. Check out our photos below.

Public art and murals add an imaginative dimension to the daily humdrum of city life — a cause public art project Forest For The Trees is championing in Portland at Hellion Gallery. The gallery is currently hosting a two-week pop-up fundraiser show for FFTT, which is gearing up for a mural series in late August featuring the likes of Blaine Fontana, DAL, Faith47, Know Hope, Mary Iverson and many other international and Portland-based artists. The current group show at Hellion Gallery features works from a small selection of artworks from some of the participants: an assemblage by Fontana, psychedelic paintings by Brendan Monroe, a landscape collage by Mary Iverson and more. The exhibition is on view through May 30. Stay tuned for news about the Forest For The Trees mural series later this summer.
Portuguese street artist Add Fuel cleverly combines tradition and modernity in his murals, which borrow the techniques of a traditional style of Portuguese glazed tile work called azulejo. At a first glance, the blue, ornate glazed patterns of azulejo remain intact, but upon closer inspection, one begins to make out whimsical, cartoon-inspired characters in the classic designs. Add Fuel is also a commercial illustrator and toy designer, and the surreal creatures embedded in his tile work evoke a Pop-inspired aesthetic. He frequently juxtaposes clashing tile patterns to create images and text within the decorative motifs, resulting in many images hidden within images. Take a look at some of his recent work below.
Swedish painter Alessandro Battisti, better known as "ETNIK" began his journey as an artist over twenty years ago, beginning with painting his large-scale murals in suburban areas and anywhere else he could find. This was how he came to discover cities, and the concept of "city" has long been at the core of his art. First featured on our blog here, ETNIK's work today is a colorful and geometric variety of murals, paintings, and sculpture inspired by the city environment and underground culture of his current home in Florence. He describes his abstract cityscapes as a "wild style", and creating art is his way of understanding the world.
When it comes to creating a compelling work of art, in the case of Kobi Vogman, no structure, location, or material is considered off limits. Based in Jerusalem, Vogman is a muralist, illustrator and animation director who works in harmonious collaboration with his environments to create narratives which explore the relationships we have with our histories, cultures, and ever-changing landscapes.
