Who is Isaac Cordal?

Isaac Cordal is a sculpture artist from Galicia who creates miniatures sculpted from concrete. His little people are always thoughtfully placed in the streets. They can be found in many unusual and unlikely places such as in gutters, on top of buildings and on top of bus shelters.

“Men and women are suspended and isolated in a motion or pose that can take on multiple meanings. The sympathetic figures are easy to relate to and to laugh with. They present fragments in which the nature, still present, maintains encouraging symptoms of survival. The precariousness of these anonymous statuettes, at the height of the sole of the passers, represents the nomadic remainders of an imperfect construction of our society. These small sculptures contemplate the demolition and reconstruction of everything around us. They catch the attention of the absurdity of our existence.”

Who Is BK Foxx?

BK Foxx is a New York-based artist who likes to create large-scale murals, working freehand with spray paint. Her murals can be found mostly throughout New York City.
BK Foxx also focuses on social awareness of animals which is why she often depicts them in her murals.

Here is a little bit of what she shared in an interview for Animal New York:

How did you get your name?
My initials are BK. And my little icon is a fox. With an extra “X” because “BKFox” was taken on Instagram (no joke.) My given name is allegedly from an ’80s sitcom.

Why do what you do?
Because I can. Because I speak better visually than verbally. And because nothing beats the feeling of standing next to people admiring the wall you painted while they have no idea you painted it.

Do you bring your smart phone into the bathroom with you? Why?
No. I try to leave my phone alone as much possible. Notifications can turn you into a lab rat on cocaine pawing at your screen.

Drugs or natural highs?
Mostly sugar.

Little Street Art

Random gallery full of street art from the streets and forrests of Prague, Czech Republic.

The first mural depicts various childhood characters from Czech as well as international children’s TV bedtime stories. You will most likely recognize Tom & Jerry, The Smurfs and Mickey Mouse. On the very right are two popular Czech rabbits called Bob and Bobek or “The Rabbits Out Of The Hat” and on the left is my favourite mole “Krteček”.

Unfortunately this unique building has been demolished in November 2016. It was an old telephone exchange in Dejvice that has been standing there for around 40 years.

Little broken car left alone in the forrest…

The following murals can be found at the railway station in Sokolov, Czech Republic.



A little something to think about today: “If we could see the world through the eyes of a child, we could see the magic in everything…”


Have a magical day!
