This week has been a little slow in the street-art sphere but a few artists did not fail us and produced memorable pieces. Phlegm, currently in Dulwich (above) and ROA in Peckham, London (below) produced two large monochromatic murals featuring a central character on a blank wall. If the street-art-genie grants us one wish, we would ask for a real Phegm X ROA collaboration. In 2011, the two artists worked on The Bussey Building, a disused warehouse located in Peckham, on an interactive installation called Black/Light with the London-based artist collective including ROA and Phlegm, their independent universe merged in an riveting dark place.

Franco Fasoli aka. Jaz is surfing on the same monochromatic-wave and produced a large piece in Vienna. In town for his upcoming solo show “Cult To The Character” at Inoperable Gallery, the Argentinian painter just had to drop some paint onto the walls. Nice.
French street artist, Ludo, plastered this new piece as a critique of consumerism on the Parisian landscape.
Stik was spotted in Japan with his signature minimalistic figure. His piece comes in perfect parallel with the window opposite from it. His understanding of architecture contributes to the creation of this ideal structural balance.
Shepard Fairey was spotted in Vienna, Austria painting the portrait of a woman holding a spray can entitled “Commanda”.
Zed 1 and his surrealistic piece were spotted in Florence, Tuscany.
