Construction Workers 1b - blog
Street artist and photographer Slinkachu recently was in Paris where he set up his Why is it so hard to find a job? series of work (construction worker, guard, saleswoman, scientist, and electrician) around town. These new street installations were created to promote ReAct Paris, “a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%.” Hidden in plain sight all around the City of Light, the miniatures play with […]

Banksy OsGemeos Voice Chelsea AM 16
Today, Banksy took his artist residency in New York straight to the hornet’s nest (aka Chelsea). Yes, the same Chelsea that houses some of the world’s most prestigious galleries. Keeping to the theme, Banksy put on display the canvases created in his most recent collaboration with his peers from the southern hemisphere, Os Gemeos, for the The Village Voice. Banksy changed things up to keep with the theme for today’s display and kept things orderly with the help of some security guards to regulate the number of […]

Back in the 90s, Ron English and Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada were pioneering the street art movement (that was not even conceptualized) with their own private clan of “art fux,” modifying billboard, street signs with clever adverts. Once again, at this years Avant Garde Urbano they were making big things happen. English kept his cans shaking on his 30′x 20′ piece, utilizing every color in the palette that MTN so graciously had to offer, in the hot Tudela sun, while Rodriguez-Gerada was fresh off his wish project and hanging one of […]

wish_8_ Jorge_Rodriguez-Gerada
Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada is a man of great conviction and indistinguishable vision. He has a huge heart and always seems to be dropping the biggest projects, and his latest endeavor is no exception – entitled Wish. This enormous 11 acre piece of land art has been years in the making and is currently the largest portrait in the UK, depicting a native child and the magnitude of a single wish. Phase 1 of the project consisted of Rodriguez-Gerada and his team of landscape architects utilizing the latest […]

Last month, Jeff Soto (interviewed) along his friend and fellow artist Maxx242 headed to Luxembourg for the Goodbye Monopol 2 event. Monopol was a much loved market chain that closed down a few years ago so organizers invited artists (some others were all ten of The Weird Crew, The London Police, Eyes-B, and Mr. X) to paint the old headquarters. Take a look below at some of the indoor and outdoor murals collaborated on as well as worked on separately. Discuss Jeff Soto here.

Dal_east_ian_cox
DALeast went dark and dirty with his latest piece at this year’s Avant Garde Urbano festival. This 30′ x 60′ corner wrapped intertwined beast of a piece had one particular local screaming bloody murder, claiming it was a work of the devil while a handful of others graciously said it was just what this decomposing lot needed to breath some new life into its former shell of a structure now exposed to the open air. Regardless, at the end of the day, the Chinese artist’s latest work […]

For those who were busy over the weekend, here is a summary of the latest Banksy pieces for his Better Out Than In art residency in New York. In addition to street stencils, Mr. B also blessed the Big Apple with more “performance art” with a truck filled with animated stuffed animals heading for the slaughter house (see video below). And, in an unexpected twist, Banksy sold original signed canvases in Central Park for only $60 with  all of the purchases likely going to people who didn’t even […]

It’s been quite a while since our last Rewind feature, so it’s high time we bring you some videos. Starting things off is an explicit new music video from  Tyler, The Creator entitled Tamale. If you recognize the scene from 0:48 – 1:02, it’s because it is a scene based of a Mark Ryden painting who also designed the cover for his new album – Wolf. Other notable videos: An interview with Anthony Lister at Wynwood Miami last May. ROA, Phlegm and others recreate famous Baroque paintings. RuPaul drives […]
