    Gods and Humans On the Streets II with Faith47, Cyrcle, BEST EVER, JAZ, David de la Mano, Invader


    This week's roundup of notable walls reveals a balanced overview of visual representations of some divine and human aspects on a rather large scale. Leading off is artist Faith47, who in response to the invitation of the Dulwich Picture Gallery Project in London, painted her take on the old master Guido Reni's masterpiece 'Europa and the Bull'. Named 'Europa And The Winged Bird', the mural takes the mythical theme of Europe's abduction into a less aggressive, gentler direction, leaving space for new interpretation. Other works come from Cyrcle in Warsaw, PichiAvo in Werchter, Belgium, BEST EVER in Limerick, JAZ in Graz, David de la Mano in Villa Soriano, Uruguay, Space Invader in Paris and Icy & Sot in Chicago.

    The People Shall Govern - Remembering Mandela


    'During the Apartheid times, non-white people were not allowed into galleries. And even today, it's still very elitist. The gallery culture is only for people that are really into art and its very, very niche,' says South-African artist Faith47 in an interview for Deutsche Welle. It seems that sometimes we forget how exceptionally lucky and happy we are to be free and enjoy the act of self- expression without any oppression. Freedom of speech and art is a fundamental human right and today, on late Nelson Mandela's birthday, we decide to look back and remember his heritage, passed for future generations through the works of art painted on the walls of post-apartheid, complex South Africa.

    There is hardly anyone who is not familiar with Glastonbury Festival and its platform for art- Shangri-La. Going for a decade now, the tradition to support and bring fresh contemporary art from established and emerging artists to the wider audience of festival goers has just been scaled up with the help of the Arts Council. This year not only Glastonbury hosted some of their 'usual suspects' artists - Mark Jenkins, Ludo, Hayden Kays, Steve Cutts, OBEY/Shepard Fairey, Dan Hillier, and many more, but also had renowned Stanley Donwood as a headline artist, choosing his work 'Nether' as a central image of festival 2014. Take a look below of the visual report from the scene. All images are via Shangri-La.
