Street Update #168 Graffiti & Street Art .magSlideContent .slides img { display: block; width: 100%; } .magSlideContent{ border: 4px solid #ffffff; } July 1, 2018 Angie Kordic Studied Photography at IED in Milan, Italy. Passionate about art, frequent visitor of exhibitions, Widewalls photography specialist and Editor-in-Chief. What you see here in our image slider is an update on Banksy’s invasion of Paris this past month. After several speculations on whether the stencils really belong to our dearly beloved, the artist traditionally confirmed it on his Instagram account. Rats, history references and some slightly puzzling pieces – it’s all there, and the world of street art is going crazy. Some of the pieces are already behind glass (yes, in the street), while others are defaced, but it is not something we’re not used to when it comes to this particular individual. While I’m quite sure we will see more of his conquests even after this article is published, I am pleased to feature the ones we know so far – because let’s face it, Banksy makes conversation no matter what. Of course, it wasn’t just Banksy who was out there painting some walls – after all, summer is here and we can definitely expect many festivals in the coming few months. Below, find the most dazzling murals from the month of June. For even more street art, follow Widewalls on Instagram!

A year later, this wonderful tribute appeared on the wall of a building in Covilhã, painted by an urban artist from Barcelona, Roc Blackblock. The painting was made possible thanks to the Wool Urban Art Festival.
