Streets: RETNA @ West Hollywood Library Project (Part II)

Over the weekend, the West Hollywood Library in conjunction with MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibit took the first step in bringing three street art legends together to give the structure a well-needed and colorful facelift. One side of the wall will feature Kenny Scharf’s signature characters (more on that later), while on the opposite side of the structure RETNA (featured) continued to cover his wall with his well-known street letters. During the first day of the process, the MSK calligrapher was able to cover […]

Interview: Kid Acne – ‘Kill Your Darlings’ @ Millenium Gallery

South Yorks represent! Kid Acne’s solo exhibition Kill Your Darlings launches this Friday 22nd July at Museums-Sheffield’s Millenium Gallery. A long time resident of Sheffield, this is surprisingly Kid Acne’s first solo exhibit in the city, and follows a pair of solo exhibitions in London at Concrete Hermit and Stolenspace over the last year. The intriguing title alludes to a motto first coined by William Faulkner, and used by writers to describe the action of cutting the most cherished characters and scenes from their story. […]

Streets: Interesni Kazki – “Sisyphus” (Russia)

You may remember when we first introduced you to Ukranian street duo Interesni Kazki last year when we featured some of their work in Barcelona. Now, fast forward to this recent mural the two (AEC and Waone) painted in Ekaterinburg, Russia entitled Sisyphus, which references a character in Greek mythology except remixed with a modern twist. For those unfamiliar, King Sisyphus was the one punished by the gods with being forced to push an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back […]
