Streets: Phelgm (Ireland)

It looks like Phlegm, like many street artists, is taking advantage of the good weather to get up on as many walls as he can. Not long after a series of Waterways, he now has a couple more to add, this time in Bantry, West Cork (Ireland). Included was this sweet submersible, structured after a fish, piloted by his characters. Discuss Phlegm here.

Interviews: TrustoCorp x The Hollywood Reporter – Tabloid Magazine Interventions

It looks like TrustoCorp has drawn additional interest of THR (The Hollywood Reporter) after their initial story on the piece they did for our City of Fire exhibition. This time, the weekly trade magazine for Tinseltown spoke to TrustoCorp about their recent Tabloid Magazine Interventions. THR and Trusto had a serious Q&A session regarding artistic expression in parodying tabloid covers as these magazines twist and warp facts on numerous  celebrities in pop culture in the interest of sensationalist reporting. The Hollywood Reporter (THR): How do […]

Upcoming: Usugrow – “Ink Moon” @ Stolenspace

Later this week on June 22nd, the Stolenspace Gallery in London will be hosting a new solo show from Japanese artist Usugrow. Ink Moon will include a selection of originals, prints and an exclusive vinyl figure release – the Shinganist’s new Shingon Skull figure. We haven’t seen a large body of work from him since 2010 at the same gallery, but it looks like he is continuing to perfect his signature fusion of Japanese calligraphy and the LA “cholo” style graffiti. Discuss this show here. […]
