Ludo is back in France where he spent his morning working on this sweet new piece somewhere on the streets of his hometown, Paris.
The Parisian artist quickly wheatpasted this "Coca Cola" inspired billboard which is featuring two of his signature images which reads "Enjoy Ludo Classic". The first billboard features Ludo's trademark pineapple skull which already appeared on several of his works.
Hit the jump for more images on these new billboards and as usual stick with StreetArtNews for more mural updates from Europe.
Our friend, El Decertor spent the last few days in the region of Huancayo in Peru where he worked on this beautiful mural in the city of El Tambu which you will be able to find on calles La Merced y Libertad.

Dutch artist Daan Botlek recently visited Brückmühle a small village south of Berlin, just south of Oranienbaum, where he painted this unique mural. Known for finding unusual spots and walls to paint on, this particular piece was created on an old farm there.
Using minimalist color palette consisting of white, black and blue accents, the artist once again proved his great ability to play with depth and perspective. By witty usage of blue accents and dotted shape effect, his simple silhouette characters are working around huge boulders, tying them with ropes, submerging them in ice-like cubes and other objects. Defying gravity and other rules of physics, the entire piece has a mind puzzling effect. Juxtapozed against the old brick wall these bright and clean characters are almost floating above the surface, giving the mural even more striking effect.
Check out more photos after the jump and stay tuned for more news from Daan Botlek.
Gaia and Cyrcle are currently in Europe where they just finished working on this collab somewhere on the streets of Vienna in Austria.
Invited by Cash Cans and Candy, the newly formed duo quickly worked their way through this piece which is featuring each artist's distinctive style and imagery.
The piece features as its central focus the personification of the Danube and Inn River produced by Hugo Haerdlt for the Pallas Athen Fountain. The background is comprised of Jewish department stores matched with their current day renovations and the various redevelopments of the Stafa. Paired with some of these buildings are the portraits of modern architect Otto Wagner, christian socialist politician and anti semite Karl Lueger, and neoclassical architect Theophil Hansen. The lone building of religious significance is the Leopoldstadt Synagogue positioned between the two figures.

Axel Void is currently in Ordes where he just finished working on this new mural as part of the newest edition of the DesOrdes Street Art Festival.
This mural is painted in the small town of Ordes on a residency for the elderly. The original image is taken from an anonymous ID photo from a person of this town. The photo was stapled to an old ID card of a lady in her late sixties that I assume was his wife. According to the ID she would be 120 years old, so she has definitely passed away.I liked the romanticism in this image and the fact that the only document of his that remains is together with his wife’s. I found this image fit perfectly at an elderly residency. It’s a thought on the passing of time, perpetuity and the historical memory that remains of everyday people. It’s an homage to those who are forgotten and those who live in their small segments of time. Special thanks to Marcos, Mou and Diana for organizing DesOrdes Festival and for their friendship and hospitality and to Blanca Louro and her family for their hospitality and amazing food during these days. -- Axel VoidContinue reading for more images on "Ninguen" and then check back with us soon for more street art updates from Spain.

American artist Jeff Soto recently finished this mural titled The Slauson Owl, for Converse Wall To Wall project. Showing his signature big eyed symmetric owl character, with antler-like eyebrows spreading wide over the hilly landscape, this large piece can be seen on Slauson near Normandie.
The artist who is rarely working public works these days, created this mural about his ancestors due to it's location. His great grandparents moved to the area in the 1930's, his grandma lived in a house down the street, and his mom was born a few miles north. With the owl being a symbol of age and experience, a matriarch or patriarch of the family, it's striking antlers/eyebrows symbolize Soto's family tree.

Polish artists Bezt and Sainer aka Etam Cru, recently spent 5 days working on a fresh new mural on the streets of Lubin in Poland, as a part of LFG: ALL MY CITY '14 festival organised by the Europejska Fundacja Kultury Miejskiej and Brain Damage Gallery.
Dream Catcher is another example of their dynamic mixture of cartoonish and surrealistic style, showing a dog entangling his owner with a leash while trying to catch a bone. Once again, their impeccable choice of pastel colors make the piece blend perfectly with the facade it's been painted on, using it's elements as a part of the background. With a great placement, and a superb ability to catch that tensed moment, young Polish artist proved their place once again with this striking work.
This mural can be seen @ Lubartowskiej 57 in Lublin, and you can find more process photos after the jump, and expect more news from Poland to come soon!
Last night in France, Invader hooked up with the legendary COST to work on a new mosaic invasion somewhere on the streets of Paris.
COST is the tag name of a graffiti writer who, from the early 1980s to the mid-1990s, blanketed New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area with his wheat-paste stickers, spray paint tags and paint-roller pieces. COST, whose real name is Adam Cole, is perhaps most widely known for his collaboration with another New York graffiti artist, Revs.
