Artist Sean Yoro aka Hula uses his paddle boat to get to and float on while creating his unique portraits. Placed on hard-to-reach, semi-submerged and derelict walls, the paintings appear to be floating murals of women bathing in the blue waters. With their hyperrealistic qualities, the images can be seen and recognized from a great distance and their perfect reflections in the still waters they make a unique sight in its setting.
Originally from Hawaii, Sean Yoro aka Hula is … Read the rest

We at Epistrophy love Cranio’s characters and will seriously address the fact that we haven’t featured his work earlier by giving you as much as we can from it! The work by the Brazilian artist Fabio Oliviera aka Cranio “Skull” is not only visually powerful but greatly politically charged with the issues of the indigenous population in Brazil.

He was born in 1982. The artist grew up in the north of Sao Paulo and it was in 1998 that Fabio … Read the rest

Street artist Bozko has adorned the city of Sofia, Bulgaria with his distinct, large scale fictional characters who always seem to land themselves in unlikely predicaments.

As part of Sofia’s Urban Creatures festival which has been taking place every summer since 2011, Bozko created a gigantic mural on the side of a nine-story apartment building. It took Bozhidar Simeonov (aka Bozko) six days to complete the work which can be seen from several hundred feet away.

Incredibly detailed and well composed drawings of junkyard cars and delivery trucks covered in graffiti by Australian artist Paul White. Be sure to check out the laborious and seriously committed to detail process of creating these works through the 30 hour timelapses. We at Epistrophy love the use of white space in Paul’s drawings which as if erased on purpose recedes in the background to allow for the beautiful pencil line-work to stand out even more.
