Artur Bordalo aka Bordalo II is a Portugese street artist born 1987 in Lisbon. He presents us a figurative painting full of vivacity and movement, where he paints his own interpretation of urban landscapes and city entertainment. He’s exploring his own mixed media on wood stand base, and are thus made a series of collages of objects (garbage). It is not only a way to recycle, but also a critique of the world we live in, where we often have nice things, which are based on junk without realizing it.

at Rice Gallery

Japanese artist Yusuke Asai just unveiled his latest immersive mud art masterpiece right in the heart of Texas. Like Asai’s other artworks, his new sprawling Yamatane installation in Houston’s Rice Gallery is made from locally-sourced soil mixed in with other natural materials. His versatility with the medium is astounding—although Asai started with just ten pigments, he managed to create no less than 27 different shades in his mural.
