Awer just completed this new mural entitled “Fuck Noise, Loud Ya Voice!” in his hometown of Polignano a Mare, a city in the province of Bari, Apulia, southern Italy, located on the Adriatic Sea.
As usual with the Italian painter, he delivers some of his line based imagery which can be seen along the Puglia Freeway.
Check back with us soon for more by Awer…
Gaelle Villedary - Tapis Rouge (2011)
In a bid to reconnect the inhabitants of French village Jaujac to their surrounding landscape while also celebrating the 10th anniversary of the town’s arts and nature program Villedary installed a 1400ft grass carpet. The project was a clear and effective reminder we’re never far from nature and its obvious benefits.

‘Reclaim Public Space’ project. From the artist statement:
“The Idea was to create a portable device which would allow the consumer to reclaim public space. Three different Objects using the same simple attachment mechanism were the outcome.”
This month, in anticipation of Valentine’s Day, Public Art Fund’s staff members are sharing some of their most beloved exhibitions from our archives.
At the intersection of art and architecture…I find myself pausing to admire Sarah Morris’s Robert Towne. By choosing as her canvas an architecturally iconic and innovative Midtown manhattan public space, Morris has created a city-grid-like geometric abstraction that provides us with fuel for a conversation that transcends public verses private to politics and power…the light just turned green.

“Developed by Amsterdam-based product design agency Waarmakers, the Goedzak is a special garbage bag for items that are still usable. ‘Goedzak’ means both ‘good bag’ and ‘do-gooder’ in Dutch. According to designers Simon Akkaya and Maarten Heijltjes, their concept is a friendly way to give products a second chance and stimulate sustainable behavior.”
