Despite some drizzly weather, Portland is looking a little more colorful this week. As of August 24th, the nonprofit mural festival Forest for the Trees, previously covered here, has been in high gear as 29 international artists work their magic on buildings across the city. The festival is co-directed by local artist Gage Hamilton and gallerist Matt Wagner of Hellion Gallery in Portland, who wanted to expand on their city's visual identity through art. For its third year in a row, the project has a goal of creating 19 collaborative new murals.
Brothers Christoph and Florin Schmidt, formerly known as Qbrk and Nerd, have come together yet again as Low Bros, to create a new mural for Urban Spree, one of Berlin’s most treasured open-air venues for art, music, cinema and most recently, screenings of the World Cup.
