“The Jungle” is a refugee camp in the French port city of Calais, the primary crossing point between England and France. It’s here that Banksy has revealed new artwork depicting the late Steve Jobs, founder of Apple and, as his piece highlights, the son of a Syrian migrant. The image is one in a series intended to change people’s misconceptions about the thousands of refugees living in the area. Infrastructure from Banksy’s recent “bemusement” park, Dismaland (previously posted about here), is also being used to help create emergency housing for migrants living in Calais. More images from “the Jungle” below.

I was gonna post about the amazing artwork of Herbert Baglione and saw that Juxtapoz did me one better and dug up a fantastic interview with Baglione in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The interview is from series put together by Fifty24SF Gallery and Upper Playground. Love the opening with Baglione drawing in the sand and the waves erasing the work. . I snagged a few images of his work, below:

Lisbon-based Portuguese street artist Odeith has been playing with perspective in his anamorphic artworks for over a decade now. These incredible pieces could easily be achieved with 3D software but there is just enough imperfection to reveal the artist’s hand and give the paintings an incredible energy. Love to come across one of these in person. Lots more images below.
Artist Gustavo Fuentes aka Flkz uses nothing but painter’s tape to make his murals. See more below.
