7 Best Murals of the Month: July 2018

Each month, Street Art Today selects the seven most stunning murals of the past month. In July: meaningful work by Faith47, WD’s anamorphic work, Tankpetrol and more! The list is in a random order.

#1 WILD DRAWING – An intense anamorphic mural named ‘Third Eye’ made by Wild Drawing at an abandoned hotel on Naxos, Greece.


#2 SETH GLOBEPAINTER – French artist Seth Globepainter painted a ‘Little Thor’ in UNESCO World Heritage Vauban’s fortification in Neuf-Brisach, France. Made for the MAUSA Vauban project.


#3 TANKPETROL Tankpetrol traveled to Bratislava, Slovakia to create a stunning mural for the local street art festival. Famous for his stencil work, the Polish artist changed his concept for this one:

A different concept and no background for the first time ever I think. All freehand.


#4 FAITH47 – A new meaningful project by the South African artist Faith47. “The Unbound is an ode to the Peace Manifesto, an almost archetypal cry for ceasefire revisited throughout history by various groups and organizations.”

“Faith uses the symbol of the White Flag in various stages of motion to give weight to these simple truths that are important now more than ever. The Artwork covers the prominent UC Hastings University of Law Building in the Tenderloin.” For more information check out the article at StreetArtNews.


#5 MARAT MORIK – In July, the Russian painter Marat Morik did a commission in Kiev, Ukraine. The mural is located on the wall of a rehabilitation hospital. For this reason, the muralist chose a topic of restoration and rejuvenation, a metaphor of putting back together the pieces of something that used to be whole.


#6 HYURO – Tamara Djurovic aka Hyuro painted two murals in Cotignola, Italy. The paintings are about women who stood up for their rights. For a woman who wanted to compete with men in Romagna, there is a name that still exists – ‘Árzdora’: a woman who wants to go beyond assigned functions in a patriarchal society and show her skills by competing with her husband.

#7 DOURONE – We’ve been following the duo DOURONE for a long time, seeing their unique and colorful style evolve. This beauty is named ‘Esencial’ is made in Lyon, France.
