Jen Stark, first featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 20, has become well known for her artworks that appear to ooze and blossom into harmonious rhythms of colors. Although she made a name for herself for her intricate paper sculptures, she has since explored a variety of media including wood, paint, plexi and animation- notably, the wormhole and animated dripping entrance that she created for Miley Cyrus at the 2015 MTV VMAs. Stark's largest work to date is another new venture for the artist.
Italy based street artist Teo Pirisi, known as "Moneyless", is constantly seeking to evolve his already abstract style of work. For his last major solo exhibition (covered here), he sought inspiration in geometrical shapes and patterns. These, he feels, are the fundamentals of life that at their core represent a multitude of possibility. As such, they appear throughout his graffiti writing, painting, drawings and found object installations. For his current exhibition, "Fragmentations," at BC Gallery in Berlin, Moneyless reduces this concept to its most simplified form.
While it's tempting to call what Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada does "street art," his Terrestrial Series isn't experienced in quite the same way as a mural. He recently unveiled two gigantic pieces — one in San Antonio, Texas and one in Paris — that can only be comprehended fully from a bird's eye view. Viewers on the ground have a unique access point of being able to walk through the portraits, which form a cohesive whole only from above.
Hula is the moniker of artist Sean Yoro, who creates massive, delicate murals above waterways and alongside abandoned structures. The self-taught painter was raised in Oahu, where he engaged with the ocean as a surfer before embarking on a path in street art and tattooing. Today, he creates his massive figures in oil paint and creates pieces across the world.
