Streets / Videos: Faith47 x Die Antwoord (Johannesburg)

Faith47 recently collaborated with world famous Die Antwoord by creating some backdrops for their new music video Pitbull Terrier. Painting in and around this abandoned building in Johannesburg, the South African artist created two works titled Escape and Escape This Place. Following the aggressive feel of both the song and the idea of the clip, the works show the big dog in a threatening pose, and an action image of the pitbull catching and killing a swan. Painted with watered out, dripping paint, on these beaten up and graffiti […]

Banksy’s Webby Awards Acceptance Video

Last week, the 18th annual Webby Awards named Banksy the Person of the Year in a surprise move.

The honor accorded Mr. B was a testimony to how well-known his art has become and how skillfully he is able to manage his online presence. This fact along with other things were mentioned tongue-in-check in an acceptance video the Bristol bomber released about his recent “art residency” in New […]

Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils, recently finished another successful collaboration with Portuguese kuduro band Buraka Som Sistema.

Showing: Julian Schnabel – “Every Angel Has a Dark Side” @ Dairy Art Centre

After 15 years, Brooklyn-based artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel returns to London at the Dairy Art Centre, with an exhibition titled Every Angel Has a Dark Side.

But Schnabel’s artistic career was almost eclipsed by his second passion as a filmmaker. In 1996 he made a biopic of his late friend Jean-Michel Basquiat, played by Jeffrey Wright, which also starred Gary Oldman and David Bowie. […]
