Peter Preffington, aka PREF, aka Peter Preffington is on the first glance a traditional graffiti artist. Spray paint on walls, pretty straight forward. But if you look deeper you find a master illusionist. How many of his 'burners' can you decipher before you want to gouge your eyes out? They are just amazing. Check it out here.

This is a partnership between art and brand I wouldn't have expected, but it totally works. X Retna recently transformed the front of the Louis Vuitton in Miami. It's really beautiful and feels right as a bridge between are and commerce. It is part of LV's collaboration with artists that started with Os Gemeos. Check it out here.

Jim is hard to pin down. He's a designer, he's a painter, he's a sculptor. The project that caught my eye and thought it was a great delivery of an image a lot of us are used to is his 'Windows' series. We've all taken photos of these views, but Jim renders them in paint on board in a beautifully abstract way and with a subtle depth that really brings them to life. Check them out here.

Specter has been established in the street art movement for some time. His recent series, "the bodega project" caught my eye. In the photo above, that's not a real store, that's his addition to the wall. Specter refuses to be defined by what most street art is. He prefers to work very realistically, mimicking everyday scenes that might flash by in an instant for us, but are frozen permanently by his masterful brushwork. Check it out here.

David makes amazing sculpture from the decaying roadsides of America. His gun series uses bent and shaped roadsigns and old car parts to make large primary colored replicas of famous murderers firearms. His Words&Symbols series is one of my favorite 3 dimensional works ever. Check it out here.
