We are delighted to share a stunning redesign and transformation of the Thomas Eindhoven, a restaurant located in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The crew behind this urban art is the amazing folks from Studio Giftig. They tireless worked at making a massive painting has been applied over the entire room with spray cans. Initially, the monuments committee had their doubts, but after a thorough look at the plans, they gave their approval, especially because the characteristic architecture of the building attracts attention again, because of this modern intervention. What a cool project to share on ABDZ, hope you dig it. The artist duo Studio Giftig, known for their detailed realistic paintings, consisting of Niels van Swaemen (1981, Eindhoven, the Netherlands) and Kaspar van Leek (1983, Philipsburg, St. Maarten) have worked for weeks on a gigantic surrealistic scene of about 600 square meters, which covers all the walls including the ceiling. On Friday 31st August, the completely renovated building Thomas in Eindhoven was opened exuberantly, so that after two months of renovation, the general public could finally see the metamorphosis with their own eyes.

AR Graffiti is a study about the different elements of graffiti. The 5 Pieces, from who the outline is a given fact, were sprayed upon a wall, scanned, digitalized and converted to video animation. By projecting the layers back on the wall, the layers from the piece that are underneath the paint, are being brought back towards the surface. This way it becomes possible to create endless variations, using the different elements from the different designs. With AR WERC wants to implement the principles they work with within digital media on graffiti. It’s a way to develop it and take it to the next level, an artistic research to understand the added value and the possibilities of augmented reality on traditional graffiti. The biggest differences between both are the element of time and the added digital layer. A graffiti piece is static, a snapshot, a moment in time. AR is dynamic. Thanks to AR different designs can exist next to each other, on top of each other or at the same time. AR Graffiti Stills WERC consists of different teams working on various disciplines. Characteristic for the collective are their experiments with new media and techniques; they are always looking for new configurations and challenges. Their shared fascination is the connection that bridges the digital and the physical world. This connection is visible in almost all of their work. The artist collective WERC consists of Joachim Rümke, Olav Huizer, Joachim de Vries, and Jelle Valk. It is located in Groningen. Other projects made by WERC can be found at werccollective.com.

Happy Friday, all! We're delighted to feature this charming street art project perfectly blending two passion areas of the talented João Pereira dubbed D’outros Tipos. Lisbon-based Pereira began working on this artistic project in 2017 with a focus of merging together two of his creative passions: graffiti and typography. The end result, a mural inspired by the great Alphaville song "Forever Young." The message conveyed is visually strong and is a spot on representation of Pereira's optimistic mindset. The colors create a great contrast with the background's black and the lettering’s white in a subtle reference to the saturated tones of our beloved 80s. Enjoy and check out more from this super talent here!
We hope you're getting familiar with the Adobe Creative Residency program at this point, an amazing endeavor brought to us by the dreamers at Adobe who are generously empowering talented individuals to spend a year focusing on a passion project, while sharing their experiences and processes with the creative community. Today, we're excited to mark day four with the inspiring work of Chelsea Burton, a graphic designer and illustrator hailing from Erie, Pennsylvania with a passion for street art, skate board-smithing & longboard deck designing who develops her own line of boards showcasing original artwork. “I plan to approach topics that most strongly reside within me, including the public perception of female strength, individuality, sustainability, product quality, and—always—functional and accessible art application,” says Burton. Chelsea will spend her Residency year creating and launching a new line of longboards as a follow-up to her university senior show and serving as a grander launching pad for a lifelong entrepreneurial goal. She will design and create both the wood decks and vinyl graphics with messages to inspire others to find the purpose and meaning of creativity in everyday activities. Chelsea has a strong belief that her products aren’t necessarily part of a traditional craft, but they have the potential to broaden public awareness about the possibilities of intentional and functional art application. MORE ABOUT WHAT INSPIRES ADOBE CREATIVE RESIDENT CHELSEA BURTON A lifelong pledge in opposition to the clean-cut framework that is housed in expensive taste, my artwork has always found it’s calling in the nitty-gritty, bump and grind freedom of the streets. A sketchbook has continuously been only a beginning—a basic map from which my work is pulled off the page and pushed to the limit of reality. There is a desire to have my work to be revisited and to be used; I want it to go beyond white walls, creep into every crack, and breathe in every city bustling with life.
Gotta love a huge painted wall. It certainly took a great effort from the artist. Years practicing, evolving, until someone thinks you're good and worthy enough to be responsible for such an canvas. Andrew Hem is an amazing artist that has been painting beautiful illustrations around the world. It sure must be a blast for the artist to see the finished product. An imagination turned into a gigantic piece or art. These amazing artworks are only a handful of Andrew's work. For more of it, please visit his Instagram! I hope you enjoy these.

It has been quite a long time since the last post on graffiti but after spending some time on Unsplash I rediscover the incredible work of street artists all over the world. Thanks to great photographers I selected some quite inspiring graffiti artworks, not so much of the conventional 3D typography, but more of the stylish and almost pop art style. The most fascinating thing about graffiti for me besides the colors and creativity, it's the size. Most of the time we are talking about walls being the canvas, and that is huge for someone like me, used to Letter and A4 format in print, or digital design. Check out the images below and make sure to click on the link to the photographers. Also check out the Unsplash website, it's quite cool. The term graffiti referred to the inscriptions, figure drawings, and such, found on the walls of ancient sepulchres or ruins, as in the Catacombs of Rome or at Pompeii.
