Meet the artist
Full of excitement and curiosity, we visited artist Mark Powell's studio to trace, document and fully absorb the truly amazing new paintings for the Junkyard Games collection that will launch at Moniker Art Fair 2014 this October. It has been really thrilling to see the progress of the work and be invited into the artist's personal space and head.
So, here is Mark Powell's very own take on art, fairs, fame and reality. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we did! Thank you Mark!

Paint is Power with Borondo, M-City, David de la Mano, Faile, Phlegm, Etam Cru, Mobstr, Lauren Baker
This week's art roundup takes a slight 'out of cityscape' turn. Even though, many of the walls are solicited and painted with permission, as part of big festivals, we found a few examples of unsolicited works that appeared in the local environment. And we love it. Spaniad Borondo leads off with this impressive, masterfully painted wall for the 2014 edition of Nuart Festival in Stavanger, Norway. Close-up images, all via Nuart, below. Other notable pieces come from M-City in Vilnius, Lithuania, David de la Mano in Djerba, Tunisia, Phlegm in London, Etam Cru in Boras (Sweden) and Stavanger (Norway), Faile in Brooklyn, USA, Mobstr -London and Lauren Baker in Rovinj, Croatia.
