Releases: KAWS – “Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket” Figures

When we first confirmed the imminent release of KAWS’ Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket figures back in June, we didn’t have any details yet as to the price or date of release.

Well, now word is these will be released at the OriginalFake store in Tokyo on August 28th for approximately $200 with other associated retailers getting their shipment a couple weeks […]

  Street poet Know Hope, who recently tried his hand at trainwriting in Croatia, apparently also left his mark on the walls there.

Roa Mural for VNA Magazine

Remember that mural AM witnessed going up last month by Roa for the cover of Very Nearly Almost Issue 12 (release party coverage)? Well, for those who haven’t seen the magazine yet, the mural actually had multiple anatomical layers that the Belgian street artist is famous for including the skeletal, circulatory, and neural systems. Take a look at all the pics posted by VNA boys in all their glory after the jump…

Streets: Nick Walker – “Dopey” in Paris

Our friend Nick Walker (interviewed) is at it again, this time in France. He sent us some pics of the latest piece entitled “Dopey”. It’s his little twist on what he calls the “Dwarfs.” This is Nick’s most recent work on the streets of Paris since his Le Coran-can. Nice little tag there Nick, wonder what’s coming next? Update: The location is rue Oberkampf situated in the 11th district (Croisement et de St Maur dans le 11ème) next to La place verte. It’s created with support from the LeMur Association. Check […]

LA Openings: Jean-Michel Basquiat – The Radiant Child

The film we heard first heard whispers of at Art Basel Miami last year is finally ready for its Los Angeles release tonight. Billed as the definitive documentary on Jean-Michel Basquiat, “The Radiant Child” (trailer) was filmed by close friend Tamra Davis before his untimely death in 1988 after which she stored the footage away for almost 20 years. There will be some special guests for some of the initial screenings, details after the jump…

Streets: Mac in Hawaii, Singapore, and Vietnam

It looks like Mac, whose work in Ireland we recently posted, has been doing a lot of traveling. In short succession, he hit up Hawaii, Singapore and Vietnam, all with some site-specific imagery done with his luminous and signature expanding spirals. More images after the jump…

Teaser: Kaws – “Wood Companion”

We’ve heard rumors of a wooden Companion figure from KAWS for a while now but haven’t seen any images… until now – from the recent Dos Sequis video! In these studio shots, the figure appears to be approximately 10 inches tall, but no word yet on general release details. We guess that KAWS fanatics, who have already been waiting for the Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket figures to drop, will be adding this to their want list although this is sure to be limited and expensive.
