THE GREAT ART DOORS

NOT ALL ART WORKS BEST IN­SIDE A GALLERY...

For the past three years, street artist Lak­wena MacIver has been bright­en­ing up streets from Vi­enna to Ve­gas with colour­ful graphic mu­rals.

‘I can’t get too at­tached,’ says Lak­wena, ‘you never know when they’ll be knocked down or painted over!’ Else­where, Bris­tol street artist 45RPM has made a name for him­self by tag­ging the city with cheer­ful car­toons, while Camille Walala trans­forms drab con­crete walls across the UK with bright geo­met­ric de­signs (pic­tured be­low). Artist and founder of Obey cloth­ing Shep­ard Fairey re­cently com­pleted his big­gest ever mu­ral in Sydney — find his work closer to home at the En­vi­sion Peace mu­ral in north Lon­don.
