The Rainbow House created from an 1840s Home.

kat-o-sullivan-house-beforeThe artist Kat O’ Sullivan has been creating upcycled sweaters and clothing for over 20 years. “It seems like anything within my grasp ends up painted a million colors,” she says.
And this statement certainly held true when the artist decided to purchase a home in upstate New York that had been built in 1840. “I just thought it was cute,” explains Sullivan, but “it was the kind of house you would drive by and never notice.”
But once in the hands of the artist and her “creative mayhem” the home quickly began to change.
After a trip to the local paint shop – “give me one of everything!” – Sullivan spent countless hours painting and renovating until the home looked like a psychedelic rainbow complete with oddly shaped windows, eyes and a big mouth.
But “Calico,” as Sullivan calls her home, is an eternal work in progress. “It will only get weirder.”
You can keep up with Sullivan and her psychedelic home on Facebook or on Etsy, where she sells sweaters and tutorials on how to make her sweaters. (via Designboom)

You may not know Anthony Lister’s name, but you have probably seen one of his faces.
Not the one beneath his cap – hairless, narrow and altogether younger-seeming than his 34 years – but one of the mammoth Joker-esque “Lister faces” that grin widely across walls in Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and other parts of the city.
You might have seen his superheroes too, and his frenzied ballerinas, or the enormous sunbathing woman sprawled near the boat ramp at North Bondi, waves crashing at her feet and the word “Lister” crawling up her leg.

With just a few cans and the cover of night, Lister has made Sydney his canvas – he had already done Milan, LA and New York – and established himself as the country’s premiere street artist.
Painting since the late 1990s, today he exhibits across the world, and charges big bucks to cool-chasing customers in Miami, Milan and London.
He talks of his fellow graffiti artists as “his kids” and describes council cleaning crews as “Neanderthals with buffers”.

He is about to set off on a world tour of book launches; he has just been in Vogue; there is an exhibition in London in.
He knows he is big– before anyone has an issue with one of his less legal works, he says, “they’re pulling it down and sticking it on eBay” – but do not call him Australia’s Banksy.

It could be argued that murals such as the ones shown here have more impact on people than any other art form, given that it’s a part of the viewers’ environment.
It’s not necessary to visit an art museum or gallery to be affected by such a piece; one only needs to take a walk down the street.
This grouping of thirty large-scale street art murals located all over the world is worth the few minutes it will take readers to peruse.
After all, how often does one get the chance to take a virtual art walk down the streets of so many countries in such a short time?
