7 Best Murals of the Month: March 2019

Each month, Street Art Today selects the seven most stunning murals of the past month. This month: Bond TruLuv created an augmented reality graffiti piece, Aryz paid homage to Japan and its culture, Kitt Bennett painted on a rooftop in Melbourne and more! The list is in a random order.


Marat Morik Madrid
#1 MARAT MORIK

In this mural curated by Madrid’s urban art fair Urvanity, the Russian artist Marat Morik combines his background in graffiti with his life-long passion for drawing and painting. Marat Morik’s current focus is ‘texture’, hence this collaged image where abstract and realism come together. The resulting piece is a multi-layered, multi-faceted portrait of Russian poet Anna Akhmatova.

Street Art Today Fintan Magee SAT7 March 2019

#2 FINTAN MAGEE 

Fintan Magee has just completed this stunning mural in Tahiti for ONO’U Festival. Titled “Strength of Memory”, it depicts a hug brimful of melancholy. A strong visual detail of the mural is the Polynesian tattoo on the guy’s forearm. Historically, Polynesian warriors were tattooed with a series of geometrical patterns, mostly consisting of repeated triangle motifs: a tradition that turned Polynesian tattoos into a highly refined art.

Aryz Tokyo March 2019

#3 ARYZ 

Painted in Tokyo for Tennoz Art Festival, this stunning mural by Aryz is titled “The Shamisen”, which is the name of the three-stringed traditional Japanese musical instrument. The mural was inspired by Aryz’s childhood dream of visiting Japan, which –in turn- was fueled by all the Japanese gifts that Aryz’s father was bringing back home from his work trips.

#4 KITT BENNETT 

The Australian artist Kitt Bennett has brought his observational drawings to the next level by painting on vast and flat surfaces like rooftops or floors. Making these huge, flat-lay artworks called for a drastic change of perspective than painting onto walls: we are looking forward to seeing how Kitt will develop this technique even further. These sneakers were painted in Melbourne.

Street Art Today Bond Truluv SAT7 March 2019 Augmented reality murals

#5 BOND TRULUV

Invited to paint in Delhi by St+Art India, Bond TruLuv created an augmented reality mural that mixes lettering with his outstanding 3D skills. Lately, Bond has been experimenting a lot with the technique of augmented reality graffiti, which allows to see something that isn’t really there and yet it feels so real that viewers find themselves diving into the piece. Most noteworthy, this is yet another way through which the German artist goes beyond the limits imposed by the actual, two-dimensional wall.
