We spent last night in Philadelphia -- walking around this morning I saw many lovely murals. This picture is a detail from a mural on 20th Street or so, a few blocks north of the Museum of Fine Art.

The Wooster Collective has some photos of a mural project by Göla, at a school in Palestine, any of which will work very well as desktop wallpaper:

Yeah, so, just two pictures that I thought go nicely together. One is the work of Scott Beseler from the streets of Covington, Kentucky; the other is one of Stanley's C-ville finds.

I laugh hard every time I look at this billboard modification of Banksy's, from Sunset Boulevard:(via The Wooster Collective)
(The original billboard is advertising a restaurant/nightclub chain in Las Vegas)
...Inside the Movies reports on Banksy's trouble with the Academy.

Time for another entry in the grafitti blog: My dad sends along a link to Internesni Kazki, which documents the murals of Ukrainian artists AEC and WAONE in various cities of Europe. I love this piece from Kiev, posted last month:
(Also, here is an image that works very well as desktop wallpaper.)

Marc at the Wooster Collective announces a new collaborative book on urban art, Trespass: a History of Uncommissioned Urban Art. You can leaf through a sample of the book at Taschen.
Update: The launch party is Tuesday evening, September 28th, in Soho.

Honestly. Blu's animated grafittis just keep getting better, more powerful, more beautiful. Today via The Wooster Collective I see he has (they have?) a new piece, Big Bang Big Boom — a "short unscientific story about evolution and his consequences":
Update: Also, Blu's first book is in the stores (well, at least one store). You can get Blu 2004-2007 from Studiocromie, 24 €. (And of course the shipping -- outside of Europe you will pay 25 € to have the book sent to you. Inside Europe it is 19 €, still quite steep.) The World's Best Ever takes a look inside; and more photos at ekosystem.org.
