Our buddy Proembrion just sent us some sick flicks from his newest offering to the streets of Lodz in Poland.
Entitled "Hexuberances", the Polish artist brought to life this epic abstract mural which shows some of his unique imagery.
"The mural I painted in Łódź continues my mathematical approach in streetart. It helped me to materialize my Exuberant Color Sequences arranged by the common channels on hexagonal tessellation. There is also the RGB heart, from which all the colors come. I could play with the form a lot because I painted it as always without any sketch." --Proembrion
The piece is located at the Centrum Komputerowe ZETO, 136 Narutowicza st. Łódź, Poland and was made possible thanks to Street Art Tours Lodz.

One of the most anticipated works from recently finished Vision Art Festival in Switzerland was the one by Guillaume Alby aka Remed. The French artist spent couple of days working on a building at 2,500m above sea level and creating this beautiful piece.
Using his highly stylized floral imagery and typography, he painted this minimalist mural that covers different walls of a house placed on the edge of a steep cliff. Inspired by the Latin palindromic sentence "Sator, Arepo, Tenet, Opera, Roas", the image has a feel of hand embroidered cloth. Using warm, bright colors against the white background, the piece will surely look even more impressive when surrounded with snow. Along with floral elements he also painted a characteristic figurative profile portrait, built entirely of colorful patches.
