Videos: The Tunnels – Nuart 2019

We’ve just received this experimental movie from the Nuart Festival headquarters, put together by Ukrainian art film duo MZM Projects, the makers of the famed Imaginary City film. Using fragments of artist talks, excerpts from the news, interviews and curatorial text by festival director Martyn Reed, the filmers resampled and infused these with the lyrics from Tricky’s Brand New, You’re Retro, 1995 track (by the Bristol artist and producer from which the exhibition took its cues). Taking a different angle to capture and present the vibe during the […]

First Look: Banksy – “Gross Domestic Product” (Greater London)

An unusual new housewares “store” called Gross Domestic Product opened overnight in the south London town of Croyd0n. Turns out Banksy has now confirmed that the elaborate art installation is his, an attempt to hold off a greeting card company from seizing legal custody of his name by creating his own range of merchandise. The showroom on view for two weeks and featuring its own security guards will never open its doors, with all eventual sales being conducted online. No word yet on exactly what, when, or how […]

Streets / Videos: Banksy (Venice)

Making an uninvited appearance in the city during the Venice Biennale, Banksy decided to set up shop and appear to sell his art on the streets along with all the other vendors. The difference being he didn’t have a permit to do so and the art done in the elusive artist’s uniquely tongue-in-cheek style. Before he was told to leave, passerby’s were intrigued and confused by his paintings of Venice with the addition of the ubiquitous massive cruise ship in the background. Check the video below for […]

Streets: Pejac – “Gold Mine” Project @ El Dueso Prison (Spain)

Continuing his penchant of working on unconventional creative projects, Pejac recently completed a few interventions at the Penitentiary Center of El Dueso in Spain. Situated at the entrance of artist’s hometown of Santander, it was built at the beginning of the 20th century on the remains of one of Napoleon’s old forts and is considered the oldest prison in the country. Over the course of 11 days, the Spanish artist completed two murals and modified the backboard of a basketball hoop with a trompe l’oeil element. Considering where these […]
