    Some amazing street artists out there!

    Every time i visit the city centre the're new murals on old backstreet walls and buildings.

    Definately brightens the place up.

    It's got so big that the're street art shops selling the paint.
    Not cheap either, a lot of the artists i've spoken to get commissioned to do their art.

    Street art can promote conversation and highlight social, political and environmental issues and has always been a powerful platform to convey messages to the masses. Check out some of the best street art murals and projects brought to us throughout 2019 month by month that promote injustices and inspire hope for our future.
    JANUARY
    Nils Westergard was invited to Berlin by Urban Nation Museum, under the artistic direction of museum director Yasha Young. They developed a new “One Wall” concept together with the assistance from “Faces of Auschwitz”. The memorial wall portrait by Nils Westergard shows the Auschwitz detainee Walter Degen, a former locksmith, was deported as a German political prisoner at the age of 32 for being gay and was registered at the Auschwitz concentration camp on 29 August 1941. In May 1942, Walter Degen was transferred to the Mauthausen concentration camp. It is not known if he survived or not. Nils Westergard ‘Unforgotten’ mural is a delayed collaboration with artist Mademoiselle Maurice.

    FEBRUARY
    February is the month of Love, and Banksy returned to The Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem and installed a brand new piece of artwork in the hotel lounge opposite the reception. The artwork represents the separation wall with a child knocking through, in the shape of a heart.

    MARCH
    St+art India Foundation as part of its Lodhi Art Festival 2019 collaborated with the transgender community of Delhi, and with The Aravani Art Project painted their first mural in Delhi in front of the N.P. CO-ED Senior Secondary School in Lodhi Colony. The Aravani Art Project reclaims the streets on which so many transgender people suffer violence and discrimination. The collective’s wall is based on inclusion and unity. Fifteen trans-women and several volunteers contributed to the execution of the wall making it a collective celebration of identity and representation.

    APRIL
    April saw the International Labour Organisation (ILO) partner up with Street Art for Mankind (SAM) to commemorate 100 years with inspirational murals about social justice around the United Nations Headquarters. The #ILO100Murals, created by world-renowned international street artists, set the course for a contemporary Art Walk, in the streets of Midtown Manhattan. They captured key themes of the ILO’s efforts to ensure “decent work” for all, and inspire each one of us to create a better “future of work”. Five murals were painted in the first week of April following the themes: green jobs, youth employment, gender equality at work, child labour and forced labour and the future of work. Artists invited were Clandestinos (Shalak Attack and Bruno Smoky), Faith 47, Jorge Gerada, Mr Cenz and Victor Ash.

    MAY
    Branded Arts curated the Maya Angelou Mural Festival, as part of its LAUSD mural festival series, a large-scale project that started with the Robert F. Kennedy Community School in 2016. Branded Arts invited over 30 local and international artists to paint a series of murals dedicated to the ideals of Dr Maya Angelou and to create murals that fit within the cultural landscape of the school and community.

    JUNE
    June saw land artist Saype start his ambitious project ‘beyond walls’. In a world that is polarised, Saype’s ambition is to create the largest human chain in the world, generate a real social movement and invite the crowds to benevolence. The project is titled “Beyond walls” and will link twenty megacities of the globe to the same ethos: Optimism and living together. This ambitious project will take Saype three years to paint. His first land art began in Paris.

    JULY
    To connect communities located in different parts of the world, aptART (Awareness & Prevention Through Art) and the Good Works Foundation teamed up with street artist Pat Perry to create OPENING LINES. Through the power of technology, the project introduces two groups of children living in markedly different places and provides them with a platform to interact. One group of children live in Slemani, Iraq, and the other group of children live in Biddeford, USA. These children who live miles apart now have a connection through art.

    AUGUST

Splash and Burn use Art as an alternative platform projecting critical ecological issues, curated by Ernest Zacharevic and coordinated by Charlotte Pyatt. As with every Splash and Burn Art project, REWILD serves to highlight and bring worldwide attention to the loss of forest habitat on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

    OCTOBER
    Bordalo II returned to the island of Tahiti to add to his ‘Big Trash Animal’ series and created numerous trash animals related to the ocean, which included the Half Sea Turtle, Half Hammerhead Shark and floating Trash shark. Bordalo’s Trash Animals are made out of discarded and recycled materials bringing much-needed awareness to waste production and pollution, and its effect on the planet, inspiring behavioural change.
    “The ocean’s most dangerous predator, not the sharks of course, but the trash.” BORDALO II
    Bordalo created a ‘Trash Shark’ and swam next to the plastic animal in the Pacific ocean. This fantastic shot was captured by Selina miles, a self-taught director and editor from Sydney who specialises in the documentation of urban art.

    NOVEMBER
    November saw Thierry Noir and STIK collaborate with the Imperial War Museum, London. The famous street art duo painted two original segments of the Berlin wall, which came down on 9 November 1989 signalling the end of the Cold War. The duo’s collaboration marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Titled ‘WALL’ the composition features two figures facing towards each other, the ‘past engaging with the present’.

    and then he had his house dismantled from engerland and shipped brick by brick to Bundaberg and then rebuilt

    An early Banksy artwork which mysteriously disappeared from the wall of a Bristol community centre last month has been put up for auction.


    Gorilla in a pink mask had been on the wall of the former North Bristol Social Club in Eastville since around 2001.


    In 2011 the building's owner painted over it thinking it was just graffiti.


    It has now been revealed the 100kg (220lb) artwork was removed from the Jalalabad Islamic Centre by an art restoration company and is being sold.


    Vans were spotted parked at the site in mid-September, prompting speculation the familiar landmark was being restored.


    Now, more than a month since it went missing, street art restoration company Exposed Walls has revealed it was given permission to remove it by the centre.

    image captionThe 1.5m by 0.8m "aerosol on concrete" mural was removed from the wall last month
    The centre's owner, Saeed Ahmed, said he wants to raise funds to restore the 100-year-old building and give "money back to local charities in the Bristol area".


    "The reason for selling is because the building is falling to pieces and we wanted to safeguard the piece," he said.


    "But I do miss it. We used to have lots of people coming to look at it and now people come and see it's gone."


    The 1.5m by 0.8m "aerosol on concrete" mural, depicts a gorilla holding up a pink masquerade mask.


    Wayne Rock, from Exposed Walls, said it had been a "challenge" to remove it.


    "It took four or five days to remove it. We had to create a hole and come from behind so that it didn't break and we could release it," he said.


    "It's been damaged with paint and has had a little bit of light restoration but it is brilliant."


    Also known as Glitter Gorilla, the piece is being sold online with the auction ending on 17 November.

    ^Cool story, restoration is always important imo. Not enough standing historical buildings left, at least not here where I am from.
    Great art as well.

    This is a wall mural near where I live (I didn't take this though). It is the Old Town Hall 1910. My city used to be filled with old historical elegant buildings, but most have been torn down.
