Looks like Vhils went all Cai Guo-Qiang on us with this new explosive video collaboration with Orelha Negra. The Lisbon-based artist appears to have increased his already versatile bag of tricks to get his works up on the walls for this music video for M.I.R.I.A.M. from the Portuguese instrumental hip-hip band. In a world where street art is expected to be temporary, with his techniques, Vhils is making his mark and making it damn near permanent. Take a look at some photos of the work […]
Recently, Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured) spent some time at Mid-City Arts in Los Angeles working on a mural. Take a look at this timelapse footage as he painted some of his classic imagery including the pedestal, cloud, honeycomb, and elephant. His next project is curating the INLE group show (lineup) at Gallery 1988, an ode to his favorite book Watership Down and source for much of the symbology in his work. Video and more pics at Juxtapoz. Discuss Greg “Craola” Simkins here.
With a show filled with such plethora of strong and iconic works from an A-list of artists, Suggestivism definitely deserves a second look. If our coverage of the opening didn’t encourage you to see the exhibition in person, perhaps this video from Hurley featuring some footage of the art as well as an interview with curator and artist Nathan Spoor will convince you to head over to the Grand Central Art Center before April 17th, the close date. Discuss this show here.
A show that closed recently in San Francisco at White Walls, What the %$#@? (WTF) featured the acronym inspiring work of Dan Witz. The ongoing series of works consisted of his photorealistic renderings of people trapped behind grills, bars, and windows. This new video has some nice footage of him getting his provocative work up as well as him talking a little about the philosophy behind his art. Via Vandalog. Discuss Dan Witz here.
It’s always a pleasure to see some of Conor Harrington’s (interviewed) outdoor work, and this beautifully produced short film that he recently put together was a real treat to watch. Crossing Lines documents his trip to Palestine and Israel last June, where he collaborated with Know Hope on a series of murals, as well as completed some solo efforts. Check it out. Discuss Conor Harrington here. Discuss Know Hope here.
Everfresh Gallery recently teamed up with the esteemed National Gallery of Victoria for their NGVSTUDIO program. Get a look at Meggs (who we last saw in Hong Kong at Above Second) and crew creating a nice mural for the progressive space. The museum is considering pursuing a larger urban art program, so if you live in Australia, or just want to see street art in more major institutions, hit up their Facebook or Twitter and let them know! Discuss Meggs here.
It looks like EIKNARF has been putting together a series of videos on MSK AWR affiliated writers (check out the one on NORM here.) Take a look at the interview above as REVOK talks a little about his beginnings, the origins of Seventh Letter, and the state of graffiti (past and present). As an added bonus, check out some pics of a recent billboard takeover posted to his blog after the jump…
An art fair based on an interesting premise opened this weekend – the VIP Art Fair. As online sales have increased when compared to in-person sales at most galleries, it was only natural that a virtual art fair be the next “big idea”. What is surprising though are the heavyhitters that are backing it. Look at some of these founding galleries – David Zwirner, Gagosian, White Cube, and exhibiting galleries – Blum & Poe, Paul Kasmin, Gladstone, Emmanuel Perrotin, Perry Rubenstein. It seems collectors were […]
