The guys from D.O.C.S., Felipe Perdomo and Ausias Pérez, make it apparent the differences between street art and graffiti. Yeah, these guys spray paint on walls, but when they do it there’s an artistic element to it that you can’t deny. One of my favorite pieces is the one above done for the Festival Cuarto Asalto. They did such an amazing job making the letters look totally 3D, it’s so totally sharp. It would be great if more people could do this around towns instead of the gross gang scribbles and the such.
Wednesday morning already?! This week has flown by for me, but I get to post a sweet wallpaper, so that’s good right? This week’s featured artist is the Finnish artist Pietari Posti, one of my absolute favorites. He’s currently working in Spain, doing a lot of illustrations for magazines like The NY Times, National Geographic and Playboy. He was also recently in the Now Showing project where people recreated awesome movie posters, which I posted about here.
His wallpaper is simple and beautiful feature a pattern of foxes (sidenote: a group of foxes is called a ‘skulk’) all looking rather cute. I love the color palette for this, those blues are damn beautiful, so be sure to DL the iPhone version as well, it looks great. I’d also like to point out that there is only ONE black fox, which is true for blogs as well, haha… I hope everyone enjoys this weeks desktop!
