As mentioned in our previous look at the streets of Oslo, the T&J Art Walk took the art work indoors for an impressive charity exhibition that opened this past weekend. With sale proceeds benefiting the Human Rights Watch’s (HRW) work, Streets artists such as Faile, Shepard Fairey, Logan Hicks, D*Face, The London Police, Will Barras, Flying Fortress and more; donated their fine art for a great cause. If you’re interested in possibly purchasing or donate go here. Check it out after the jump.
After mentioning Faile’s (featured) wall for the T&J Art Walk (and the fun they had with a ping pong table) earlier in the month in an Overtime article, we thought it was time for an update. The event in Oslo was put on in support of the Human Rights Watch (HRW) and to allow memorial murals honoring the victims of the horrific terror attack of July 22. This will all culminate with an art show with proceeds to benefit the HRW (but you can also donate here). You can […]
You probably came across the pictures online recently of the paving slab that D*Face (interviewed) installed in East London a couple of weeks back… Known for carrying out street level interventions previously such as his concrete spray cans, and also the tombstones he installed on the Hollywood walk of fame, first seen in our studio visit, AM thought the paving stunt was a pretty cool move from D*Face. It’s long gone already of course – probably taken in much the same manner it was installed – and […]
Remember when D*Face (interviewed) hit up the Ridiculous Pool, the skateboarding hotspot in San Bernardino, California back in 2009? Named because of its sweet curvature, the empty pool is perfect for skaters and this time D, who was in town for the Corey Helford anniversary show, took advantage of that fact by attaching spraycans to the decks and letting everyone paint up the pool. Check out the spirographic effect in the video above. Via LAMJC. Discuss D*Face here.

A couple more preview images after the jump…
Charming Baker is back in London with a new pop-up exhibition that previews this evening at Mercer Street Studios (16 Mercer Street), an attractive space in Covent Garden. AM had a nose around the venue during the final preparations to check out Baker’s recent canvases, prints, as well as sculptures — a medium we haven’t associated with him before. All the canvases have already pre-sold, which may help to explain why the artist appeared so relaxed on the eve of his show. Every Thing Must […]
I have been kindly asked by the nice guys here at AM if I would like to submit a weekly street art article from my Instagram feed. Without hesitation I accepted… For those of you who haven’t heard about Instagram, it’s an app on the iPhone where you can upload and share pictures, so all photos are taken with the iPhone. I mainly focus on the streets of Shoreditch and areas of Hackney, London, taking photographs of new and old streetart. So, here goes, I […]
You may remember his recent travelogue here on AM from Ecuador (here and here), and it looks like our boy D*Face (interviewed) has been on his travels again, this time hitting some spots in Buenos Aires with a variety of street pieces. D recorded some of the highs and lows of the trip to Argentina for us again in a travelogue series. Read on for part one, which we’ll subtitle ‘D gets his stink on‘ after the jump.
