7 Best Murals of the Month: October 2017

Each month, Street Art Today selects the seven most stunning murals of the past month. In the October edition: positivity by Slick, dizzying work by Astro, a ‘Dream’ by Millo and more! The list is in a random order.

#1 SLICK – Let’s start with a smile. The Hawaiian graffiti writer/clothing designer OG Slick created some positive vibes in Kobe, Japan. He made this fun piece for POW! WOW! Japan, photo by Brandon Shigeta.

#2 ASTRO – If you look at this wall, you don’t know what’s real. The French artist Astro creates dizzying optical illusions, leaving the spectators confused and impressed. He made this amazing mural in Tahiti for ONO’U, one of the largest street art festivals in the Pacific region. Photographer unknown.

#3 GLEO – This power woman keeps us amazed with her impressive paintings. Last month, Gleo visited Nu Festival to make one of her largest murals to date. Entitled ‘The Other’, the 40 meters high portraits can be found in São Paulo, Brazil. Photographer unknown.

#4 MILLO – The mural ‘Dream’ is painted by the Italian artist Millo in one of the poorest suburbs of his adoptive city Pescara. The beautiful message:

We should take more care of our lives and never forget to dream, cause inside each dream there’s everything we are and everything we will be.

#5 DEIH – Spanish master Deih has a style that will never be boring. Made for the Points de Vue Fest in Bayonne, France, he named the mural ‘Are You Ready’. What do you think will happen when she plugs in? Photographer unknown.

#6 CIX / TADLOCK – The Mexican friends Cix and Tadlock worked together on a huge mural in Casablanca, Morocco. Besides being big and beautiful, the painting ‘Rebuilt’ carries a strong message:

A man’s character is his fate. When thinking about fire he becomes fire, the same goes when he thinks about war. But it only takes his imagination to become an entire sun to light up the heart of men. Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. It’s time to rebuild our minds and hearts while rebuilding Mexico, becoming united.

#7 VESOD – ‘Lights on the horizon’ is made by the Italian artist Vesod. His style is a little dark and grimy, but very interesting to get lost in. Made for Draw the Line in Campobasso, Italy. Photographer unknown.
