Nothing builds up your street cred like some strategically placed graffiti. The problem is, unless you’re out tagging in the middle of the night, you’re at risk of getting caught in the act. And for an artist like Bob Partington, who works in the medium of spray paint and public property, that’s a problem — so he created this incognito graffiti briefcase that lets him leave tags without anyone realising it.
Paris-based street artist ABOVE is known for weaving stencil paintings into the surrounding streetscape to create images that border on optical illusions. Travelling the world to make art that comments on social and political issues, ABOVE keeps an eye out for situations where real world and painted image can interact, with results that are playful, head-scratching and haunting.

Water and electricity: historically, not a great combo! But Antonin Fourneau, a French artist and engineer, combines both to remarkable ends in his installation, Water Light Graffiti, which landed in New York this week.
OK, nobody actually beat up Mark Zuckerberg, but someone did plaster a series of posters that make it seem as though the Facebook founder had been beaten up. When in actuality it’s the latest work of famed NYC graffiti artist KATSU. You might have seen his signature skulls around the city or his app.
What? If Shepard Fairey is capable of making Andre the Giant and Neil Diamond relevant to the 21st century, there’s no way he could have not knocked the design for the ISS out of the park.
