Centina

Browsing through Flickr on a rainy day, I was instantly awed by the beautiful work of street / graffiti artist Centina. Hailing from Parma in Italy, Centina is a carpenter, a regular street art misfit and a self-proclaimed ‘bite-proof animal’ (don’t ask). Anyway, there’s definitely a lot of love for painting shining through in his works that varies from amazingly shaded portraits in abandoned factories to fire-extinguisher...

Dara Scully – Little dreamers

The pictures of 22 year old Spanish photographer Dara Scully are just full of imagination! Dara is not just a photographer; she's a storyteller (and self-proclaimed elephant tamer) who uses different techniques to bring her stories to live. She mixes fantasy with reality seamlessly and turns every picture into a dream, hence the title 'little dreamers' for her latest series. Dara: " 'Little dreamers' is about your inside child....

Orticanoodles – people from another planet

There is nothing like the amazing cuts of stencil art ninja’s Orticanoodles! The Italian duo consisting out of Wally and Alita are definitely amongst the top stencil artists in the world. With their original style and continues re-inventing of themselves and the stencil art technique, I have been amazed by them for quite a while. Actually, since I first laid eyes on their work during the Paint & Beer festival in 2008. The...

Graffiti Photography – Startape

Photographing graffiti is not an easy task. That a picture contains amazing artworks is not enough to make it a great photo as well, which is proven by many artists who take shit photos of their great pieces on a daily basis (with an exception here or there). Luckily Leo, better known as Startape on Flickr, is someone who knows how it is done. His graffiti photography ranges from the cleanest, sharpest pictures to a more artistic take...

Edward Olive – Wedding photographer

Wedding / Fine Arts photographer Edward Olive has come a long way since the last times we had the honours of featuring the good man on CFYE and Gup Magazine. It seems that his photography finally starts to get the recognition it deserves. A thought that is strengthened by the amount of awards added to his biography since the last time we spoke. I know awards aren’t everything but it does show a level of well-deserved appreciation and...

DZIA

Any street artist having a bunny with a hand grenade as logo is cool in our book, so no wonder we had to feature Dzia sooner or later! Dzia is an immensely diverse artist from the city of Antwerp, Belgium. He’s continuously busy on and off the streets creating paintings, illustrations and paste-ups to installations, sculptures and even taxidermy! It's almost needless to say that what I like about DZIA is this immense diversity. One...
