Floral artist Lewis Miller (previously) and his talented team arrange beautiful blooms in the most unexpected places in New York City. For nearly 3 years with his company, Lewis Miller Design, they worked on a very cleaver guerrilla marketing campaign: “flower flashes”, where they transformed trash cans into larger-than-life flower vases and used blooms to embellish the streets of New York, as well as the subways as public art.
A seascape of sculptures in a historic New York City district. In celebration of the 2019 summer season at South Street Seaport, The Seaport District approached Wade Jeffree and Leta Sobierajski (or simply creative duo Wade&Leta) to create a large scale series of sculptures to liven the district for the summer of 2019. Inspired by coral and camouflage and the languid movements of algae and seaweed, their sculptures drift and sway as if being gently pushed by an underwater current.
They wanted to emulate the feeling of drifting through an unexplored world splashed with color and pattern by creating cavernous structures that would evoke an overwhelming seascape of multi-dimensional sculptures of varying heights and colours. A material inspiration comes from the nearby boats that have been docked at the Seaport’s harbour over many years; like boats, the material will gradually weather over time, replicating the way elements shift and change our environmental landscape as the seasons progress

The new record was set within the framework of collaboration with Lokomotiv football club — the artist painted the square in front of RZD Arena (team’s home ground in Cherkizovo) in red and green — the reigningchampions’ club colors. The painting covers the area of 11,000 square meters.
The choice of location for the new art object was deliberate. Back in the Soviet days Cherkizovsky Parkused to bring art and sport together. The Stalinets stadium built here in 1935, was lavishly decorated with sculptures. The most famous among them was, perhaps, “The girl with an Oar” by Romuald Iodko — its four-meter copy printed on a 3D printer this simmer was painted by Pokras Lampas for Gorky Park. The new stadium built on the site of Stalinets has become a well-known arena for not just football games but also for first rate entertainment, art performances and concerts, it is used for shooting episodes about football.
According to Pokras Lampas, his new artwork brings together sport and art, taking up such topics as pushing the limits and conquering new peaks. As usual, Pokras encrypts a hidden message in his massive calligraffiti to be found and revealed by the audience. A shining example of profound symbolism and powerful meaning to be recognized is the installation “18 words about Vasily Vereshchagin” at the entrance to the New Tretyakov Gallery. The art object nearby RZD Arena has been no exception, as it implies a new slogan of Locomotiv which is “We go our (own) way”.

The mural «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» (Dualism) has appeared on the inner wall of the WYNWOOD design hotel at the very heart of St. Petersburg. The artist’s lecture will take a place there on August 2, 2018.
Lampas’s work «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» is a Manifesto, dedicated to the duality of the perception of contemporary art. Its text in two languages, helping the viewer to explore both differences between alphabets and cultural references in the forms of letters, and combining them into the context of calligraphy of the future. Dualism also reflects in the choice of color: the left part of the work is closer to the original range of the facade, while the right part is more contrast. Together they form the complete picture. The text itself is a Manifesto of Millennials with the values of past generations, made by borrowing the forms of letters from western and eastern, ancient and modern calligraphy. «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» is the largest mural by Pokras Lampas in St.Petersburg — it covers an area of more than 250 square meters.

"Trevor Wheatley and Cosmo Dean work together to create large installations based around phrases and logos that are part of the common lexicon. Casually used terms like “all good” and the shrug emoji take on larger-than-life dimensions in the duo’s three dimensional versions, which are suspended from cables, integrated into chain link fences, toted in truck beds, and painted alongside graffiti. Wheatley and Dean have partnered with music festivals, fashion brands, and the creative house Justkids to install their work. Up next, the artists will be embarking on a trip to Mexico to create new paintings in rural areas." via Colossal
