Brooklyn-based street artists FAILE (Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller) partnered up with the New York City Ballet! FAILE dreamed up an exhibition to launch The New York City Ballet Art Series, which will be on display during the May 29 performance. It’s a pretty sick deal for only $29 and every member of the audience will “receive a limited-edition work made specifically for this event.” For more information, click here.

Hawaii’s annual street and graffiti show, POW WOW (which took place mid-February) resulted in some amazing murals. Designed to bring artists together from across the globe, POW WOW provides a space for creative freedom, where people can watch artists in action. At the end of the week, walking through the neighborhood is like walking through an outdoor art gallery. POW WOW founders have certainly started an awesome, engaging show that has continually drawn in top artists. One of our favorites is the bird mural by DAL. For more on POW WOW, click here.

There have been a lot of incredible dedications to the late Oscar Niemeyer since his death in December 2012. We posted about Wallpaper magazine’s feature last week and we’re excited to share the recent mural by artist Eduardo Kobra. Kobra completed a 180-foot, colorful art work of Niemeyer in the financial district of Sao Paulo. For more on this, click here (photo courtesy of Design Taxi).

Famed Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer passed away on December 5, 2012 at the age of 104. He was a huge inspiration to the SUSHISAMBA brand. Upon learning of his death, our Founder and CEO of SUSHISAMBA and brainchild of GGG, Shimon Bokovza, reflected on his incredible influence, “Niemeyer captures the essence of Brazil in his work: imagination, freedom of expression and the new frontier. His architectural wealth is only matched by the beauty of the Amazon. He has influenced everything that we do from color palette to architecture. His projects – brilliant and monumental – will continue to inspire us for years.” In its recent addition, Wallpaper* magazine included a beautiful 28-page tribute to Niemeyer and his incredible work. We highly recommend picking up a copy. Click here for more information. (pictures below courtesy of Wallpaper* online).

Brooklyn Street Art recently posted a moving article on artist Jetsonorama’s visit to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While in Rio, Jetsonorama went to Rocinha, “one of the largest slums in the world,” where he learned about the Green My Favela initiative and installed a symbolic mural. For more on this, visit Brooklyn Street Art’s website. (photo courtesy of BK Street Art)
