Upper Playground x Nychos releases new designs for STREET ANATOMY at Fifty24SF Gallery opening Friday, April 18th!

MANSQUID was the first “X-Ray Drawing” Nychos ever attempted to do. He says ” I thought it would be funny to add bones since squids don’t have bones and I also enjoyed adding a human element to it as well.”

HUMAN EXPLOSION is based on his recent work, more exemplary of the new murals in SF. “There’s not much to say about the exploding human, except that it’s much easier show the entire human by using an exploded view and while doing this you might as well add some motion to make it look like an actual exploding human.”

DATE FARMERS ART STUDIOS launches: COACHELLA WALLS at this year’s Coachella Music and Arts Festival

There’s more to this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival than any other year.  The difference being the launch of a community  revitalization project called “Coachella Walls” in conjunction to the Music festival.  Organized by Coachella-based Date Farmers Art Studios, the “arts driven community revitalization project” aims to beautify the downtown area with some of the most talented and recognized artists in the world.  The list of contemporary artists/muralists include: The Date Farmers (Coachella), El Mac (Arizona), Nunca (Brazil), Estevan Oriole (Los Angeles), Saner (Mexico), Andrew Hem (Cambodia), Liqen (Spain), Albert Reyes (Los Angeles), Vyal Reyes (Los Angeles), Sego (Mexico), The Phantom (Los Angeles), Eye One (Los Angeles), Jim Darling (Texas), and more.  It also aims to raise awareness for the Eastern Coachella Valley community and dedicates the project “to the anonymous farm worker.” True to the aims of the project, El Mac’s recent mural just completed this week reflects exactly that:

Three more murals are underway from  Date Farmers depicting two farm workers marching by a car, one by Nunca, and one by Cambodian American artist Andrew Hem.

In addition to the Coachella Murals, the Date Farmers have organized a group show at their studio, on view through April 27, featuring works by the participating artists of the ‘Coachella Walls’.

Bicicleta Sem Freio finishes new mural in downtown Los Angeles

The multi talented Brazilian trio, Bicileta Sem Freio has been working steadily at a bright big building in Los Angeles for the past 10 days.  They just wrapped up their giant mural scaling 3 sides of a large commercial building, located near Little Tokyo and Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles. Upper Playground tracked them down today to take a first peep at the freshly finished building with scaffoldings still in tact:
