Video: Blu & David Ellis – “COMBO” – a Collaborative Animation for Fame Festival 2009

Well, the wait is finally over. The much anticipated collaborative animation between Blu and David Ellis that we hinted about here and here is finally done. The patterns and colors of Ellis’ work blend really well with Blu’s more muted kinetic work. Props to these two artists for the creative camera work as well the time and effort this obviously required. This will go down as one of the top highlights for this years’ FAME Festival (coverage here) and is highly recommended. Via Unurth. Discuss […]

Update: Nuart Festival 2009

As stated in our preview last month, Italy (Fame Festival) isn’t the only country with an amazing street art festival happening right now.  Norway is playing host again to the Nuart Festival, this year featuring the work of the best of Brooklyn street art including David Choe, Swoon (interviewed), Skewville, Brad Downey, Leon Reid aka Darius & Downey, Chris Stain (interviewed), Judith Supine, Logan Hicks (interviewed), Graffiti Research Lab and Benjamin Wolf.  Take a look at what all the artists have been up to (courtesy […]

Fame Festival: Blu Time-Lapse

Remember that mural we told you about that Blu worked on at the Fame Festival several weeks ago? Well, there is a nice video out now that shows the time-lapse of him working the massive political statement. With the opening only a week away, we can’t wait to see all the finished street and gallery pieces from all the artists, but we are especially interested to see if the “graffiti-animation” Blu is working on can match the energy of “Muto.” Discuss Blu here. Discuss the FAME […]

Fame Festival: Slinkachu

When we heard Slinkachu (street photographer and sculptor we first covered here) was included in this year’s lineup for FAME Festival, we were wondering how he would fit in with all the big murals that other artists were putting up all over the city. Apparently, he decided to go “big” as well in the form of the largest piece he has ever one. Looks like he put up this “laundry line” piece in one of the many alleyways of Grottaglie. Closer looks after the jump.

FAME Festival: JR, Judith Supine, Ericailcane, Sam3

Things have been busy over at FAME Festival since we last gave a report (see our coverage here). Ericailcane has finished up a new mural, Judith Supine has put up his first piece, and JR and Sam3 have created some fantastic new prints (see JR’s above). Fans of the French artist may recall the original piece from the “Self Portraits” show at Circle Culture (previewed and covered). Take a look at the new work from Judith, Ericailcane and Sam3 after the jump.

Summer makes way for the Fall as August comes to a close. It was month packed with juicy stories for our readers. Just to make sure you don’t miss anything, AM brings you another edition of Second Helpings. Get served after the jump.

Video: Blu Mural @ Deitch Studios

Apparently, Blu is already hard at work again after finishing his time-intensive “graffiti animation” video “Combo” collaboration with David Ellis for this year’s Fame Festival. This time, he’s in NY, for a large mural at Deitch Studios. I guess Deitch is in a generous mood since they just commissioned Os Gemeos for a mural not long ago. Some pics after the jump…

Streets: Blu in Milan

Looks like Italian street artist Blu has struck again, this time in Milan. It was only just recently that we saw him working in Grottaglie (here, here, and here) on his part for the FAME Festival this year. He apparently also had time to get this huge mural up giving bicylists a little chance for payback as you see them crush cars in their path. More images after the jump.
