Stickerbomb Skulls is the latest book in the Stickerbomb series. Studio Rarekwai have teamed up with Laurence King once again to bring us this collection of peelable art illustrations of skulls by an eclectic mix of international artists.

Skulls are one of the most popular visual icons used in the worlds of fashion, jewellery, graphic design, music and street art and let’s not forget tattoos. Head out on to the streets armed with a swathe of new stickers. As you can see from the photos, the book includes some amazing intricate work from artists including:

Iconic pieces throughout, I recommend this book (and all of the other Stickerbomb books for that matter), it would also make a fantastic gift.

The SRK is a creative production studio setup by Ryo Sanada and Shazeed Hassan in 2006. Aside from being the creators of the Stickerbomb books, Ryo & Shazeed also authored the first books to explore Asian graffiti culture, from Japan down to Indonesia. (RackGaki [2006], Graffiti Asia [2009]). Pursing their passion for creative content with an international outlook, Ryo & Shazeed are also known for producing award-winning documentaries exploring music, the arts and human interest stories. From it’s spiritual home in London the SRK is now a studio fast evolving to seek new horizons in South East Asia and beyond.

Screen Shot 2014 08 23 at 15.10.32 750x251 Well Hung presents The Rabbit and The Box

Well Hung present a new show by female artists, AR and Boxhead. The show, “The Rabbit and The Box” opens on Thursday 11th September at their gallery on Hoxton Street in London

AR is a London based artist whose work is influenced by the energy and environment of the underground electronic music scene. Her paintings skilfully illustrate narratives inspired by music and dance. Her often surreal interpretations speak of her personal desires, recreating dreamlike fantasies.

Boxhead is a Spanish born and internationally grown visual artist and designer. Her signature style features characters masked under a box often surrounded by cubes. These daunting figures question our notion of identity and individualism. Boxhead does not try to explain her body of work but wants the spectator to make their own interpretations. This imagery has become iconic of her style, so much so that the characters created her identity – Boxhead.

Exclusively for the exhibition, the artists have produced an exciting collaborative piece on Leonard Street, Shoreditch and will launch new limited editions prints at the show.

As usual they will be giving away free prints for the first 10 people at the opening, so make sure to get there early!

Adidas Originals have announced the launch of their flagship store on Foubert’s Place in London this coming Saturday. Revealing the latest destination in a series of global neighbourhood stores, it’s time for London to showcase the spirit and style of this worldwide tour.

The store will not only present the best of trainer drops, limited editions and collaborations but will also play host to events throughout the year.

adidas have teamed up with Rosanna Webster and Malarko to bring two installations as part of the launch. Rosanna is a digital artist from North London who produces collages and GIFs using photography, film and illustration.

Malarko aka Malarky grew up in South London before moving to Barcelona to refine his craft. Now back in London, I’m sure you’ve seen his work adorning many of the shutters on shops in the neighbourhoods of the city.

Rosanna’s installation takes us for a walk through her part of town and showcases the sights and sounds of her neighbourhood, whilst Malarko has created artwork inspired by the characters of London, the people and places that brighten up the city – a contrast to the cloudy greyness.

DeathFrontCover 750x958 RON ENGLISH Death and the Eternal Forever book launch

Ron English has a new book and to coincide with its release, there’s a launch this Thursday at Atomica Gallery in London.

Death and the Eternal Forever is the new book from fine artist and street art legend Ron English. In this collection of visually astonishing and bitingly funny work, English explores his belief that all art is a futile attempt to cheat death, and death is the thing that gives all art meaning. Featuring more than 170 of the artist’s iconic paintings, sculpture, and vinyl figures, Death and the Eternal Forever teems with fantastically twisted creatures, from three-eyed rabbits and his signature udderly delicious cowgirls to grinning skulls. The book is published by independent publishing house Korero Press.

The starting point for Death and the Eternal Forever is English’s own shocking encounter with death; he was once kidnapped by a knife-wielding artist who demanded he assess his work. Questioning the sincerity of English’s comments, the artist then destroyed his life’s work with his knife. English managed to escape, but the experience of witnessing the destruction of the artwork, or as English calls it “a suicide by proxy”, profoundly impacted his outlook:

“Art that has outlived its creator exists beyond the reach of death, and its ultimate purpose may be to preserve the high marks of human consciousness for unborn generations. It is, at its core, a very human attempt to outwit death, or at least to protect those divine flashes that are too new and fleeting to be encoded and preserved in our DNA—to protect this thing we most covet, which is uniquely ours, from extinction.” – Ron English (from book introduction)

ron with baby hulk 72dpi 750x915 RON ENGLISH Death and the Eternal Forever book launch

Ron English has bombed the global landscape with countless unforgettable images: on the street, in museums, in movies, in books and on television. Coining the term ‘POPaganda’ to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones; from superhero mythology to totems of art history, his work is populated with a vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters.

Death and the Eternal Forever is available online via www.koreropress.com, or in-store at Atomica Gallery, 29 Shorts Gardens, London WC2H 9AP.

Price: £24.99

John Dolan John GeorgeExhibition 1000 650 80 c1 750x487 John Dolan exhibition John and George at The Howard Griffin Gallery

In September 2013 John Dolan staged a blockbuster show at Howard Griffin Gallery where he worked in collaboration with over 50 of the worlds most recognisable street artists. Dolan drew the skyline of Shoreditch, a screen print of this was produced and copies sent all over the world for artists to work directly onto Dolan’s cityscapes.

For this exhibition Dolan worked with artists such as Thierry Noir, RUN, Steve ESPO Powers and ROA and also displayed his own original works. The level of refinement and attention to detail within these architectural studies are highly incongruous to Dolan’s situation of living homeless on the street and he is a genuinely unfettered artistic talent with no training whatsoever.

 It is John Dolan’s second exhibition at the gallery and will focus on his unique relationship with his dog George and tells the story of how George enabled him to turn his life around with his art. The gallery are going all out to make a visually arresting exhibition and are recreating Shoreditch High Street inside the gallery complete with pavement, curbs, telephone exchanges and pelican crossings.

Dolan has produced 700 drawings of the George the Dog which will cover every inch of the gallery walls. The repetition of the 700 George the Dogs is very interesting. There are only 180 in the studio shoot below but it is quite an effect with only that number.

PRINT PREVIEW HELD BARRAS WEB RES EDT FIFTY 750x817 Street art legend, Will Barras to release new print Goya & His Dog with Edition Fifty

Will Barras is the next to release a limited edition print through the Edition Fifty project. Will is an artist, illustrator and animation director who loves in London.

Will became one of a new crop of young artists working within Bristol’s world renowned street art scene. This led to Will appearing in ‘Scrawl’ the book, and becoming a founding member of the Scrawl collective. ‘Scrawl’ originally published in 1999 was a seminal book documenting a new movement in street art, graphics and illustration. He was chosen as one of the original artists for the collective, noted for his representations of fluid movement, unique narrative driven composition and line work. This has led Will to travel extensively, Live painting and exhibiting his paintings in Asia, throughout Europe and the U.S.

Mike added:

“We are really excited to be working alongside one of the UK’s most renowned and beloved street artists. Will is considered by his contemporary’s as one of the most influential and respected artists of his generation and a pioneer of modern day street art.”

Will says of the print:

“This painting is inspired by ‘The Dog’ by Goya, a painting he did on the wall of his house towards the end of his life. It’s a mysterious painting. The dogs head is very small at the bottom of the composition almost completely enveloped by a large dark mass. Some people think the dog is drowning or half buried, representing mans futile struggle against forces beyond his control. But maybe he was just asking his owner to take him out for a walk, so here is Goya taking his dog for a walk.”

Working with some amazing artists they are launching a series of prints, all in editions of 50. The first print launches on Thursday 19th June at 00:00 GMT, from one of our favourites, Mr Jago.

Cheba: “We will be releasing a new print by a different artist every fortnight. As the name suggests, each print will be an exclusive edition of just fifty. We believe by limiting the run in this way will make them desirable and sought after prints that people would want to own and cherish.”

With Mr Jago, NYCHOS and Stanley Donwood already confirmed, this is definitely a project to keep your eyes on!

This year they host some of their favourite artists including Ron English, Mark Jenkins, Dan Hillier, OBEY, Born to Kiln, Ludo, Dr D, Link Leisure, Tomorrow is Ours to Win, Shaka, Steve Cutts, Code fc, Remids, Jim Woodall and many more.

Absolut at New Designers 750x262 Absolut supporting up and coming designers at this year’s New Designers exhibition

Absolut and New Designers are proud to announce the 2014 edition of the Absolut @ New Designers competition.

New Designers is an exhibition for emerging UK design, providing an opportunity for the country’s most creative and fresh thinking graduates to exhibit their work. For the fourth year running, Absolut have partnered with the exhibition to invite participating graduates to use the bottle as a blank canvas and create their own transformation of it.

The first spirit brand to forge genuinely close ties with the creative community, Absolut has been active in the art world since 1986, when it invited Andy Warhol to create the first in a series of iconic advertisements inspired by the Absolut bottle. Since then, Absolut has collaborated with more than 1000 artists on over 800 commissioned projects.

Absolut continue to grow their arts legacy by supporting and collaborating with emerging talent in the design world. Six New Designers finalists will be invited to produce their designs on 50cm Absolut Original glass bottles live at New Designers 2014, with the pieces exhibited in advance of the winners being announced. Each winner will receive £500 of artists’ materials to help them continue their practice after graduation, and their work will be exhibited for one year in the foyer of the Absolut UK London offices.

Past winners of the Absolut prize include Harriet Riddell who live-machine stitched drawings of New Designers visitors and exhibitors onto an Absolut shaped canvas, creating a vibrant and visual artwork. With the materials Harriet won in the competition, she was able to become mobile and take her stitching to the public. This has included portrait stitching at Greenwich Market. She has also just completed a trip to India where she live stitched her way around the country.

Absolut will also be hosting one of their popular Absolut Art Talks on 26 June. A panel of respected industry guests including Ben Chatfield, Creative Director of graphic design agency Bravo Charlie Mike Hotel and Catherine Ince, Curator at the Barbican Art Gallery will look at Transformation and Design, discussing ways in which great designers transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Banksy’s former agent, Steve Lazarides, of Laz Inc has put together an unauthorised retrospective of more than 70 works by the elusive artist loved by millions across the world. Steve has putting the selling exhibition on at Sotheby’s in London with works up until 2008, when he stopped acting as Mr B’s agent.

The sculptures, paintings and prints, sit alongside work such as Avon and Somerset Constabulary, an image famous from the 2000 Bristol Severnshed show, right up to the politically charged Guantanamo Bay ‘Crude Oil’ painting from Banksy’s Los Angeles exhibition Barely Legal.

The exhibition is open to the public and is free admission – I imagine there will be some queues for this one!

Opening Hours:

Monday – Friday | 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 June | 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Location:

31 St. George Street, London W1S 2FJ

Sickboy makes his first London gallery appearance this summer with a show titled “Make It Last Forever” at The Outsiders in London. The show has been designed specifically for the gallery and is a multi-disciplinary showcase of his talents.

Featuring a unique body of surreal, cosmic canvases alongside an installation inspired from personal assemblages and years of sacred memorabilia. Sickboy’s playful visual language will reappear in several guises throughout the show, including his iconic temple shrines, ever-popular superman sculpture and distinctive sickboy coffin. Utilising a variety of mediums across both floors of the gallery the new body of work provides an unconventional narrative in the form of abstract large-scale canvases, sculpture and interactive installation.

The show opens on 25th July, so a while to wait, but it’s going to be one to look forward to.

We’re a bit slow on this one, but I’ll blame being supremely busy at work for the lack of updates as I trawl through all the emails I get.

Pablo Delgado’s exhibition “Even Less” is on till 8th June at The Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch and it looks like it’s definitely worth a visit.

Delgado is known for abstracting existing images and rearranging them into new surreal scenes and compositions.  It is the artist’s first exhibition at the gallery.

The title of the exhibition reflects Delgado’s obsessive focus in minimising and reducing his work to its smallest expression. The constant need to be less reflects the world’s unsustainable requirement for resources and necessities. As a counterpoint to this, minimalism and an emphasis upon negative space become a paramount means of expression.

Absolut Rio Bottle Shadow 750x360 Absolut launch Rio edition by Oskar Metsavaht

With just over 2 weeks to go before the highly anticipated summer of Football in Brazil, Absolut have collaborated with Brazilian luxury designer Oskar Metsavaht to transform the iconic bottle and pay tribute to the essence and exceptional nature of the people of Rio de Janeiro, the ‘cariocas’.

When creating the art for the special edition bottle, Metsavaht drew his inspiration from his own photos of Ipanema and brought the essence of the city’s universe of image and iconography to the world of Absolut. These typically carioca elements sum up Rio de Janeiro: sand, the sidewalk of Ipanema and the Dois Irmãos Mountain. With a flavor mixture that goes way beyond exceptional, the taste of Absolut Rio includes a combination of tropical fruits – orange, mango and passion fruit.

“I accepted the challenge from Absolut because I think it’s interesting to take a world icon and be able disrupt it. This is also part of the soul of Rio; ‘cariocas’ don’t understand limits. And the special edition is to pay tribute to Rio, to reveal to the world what is exceptional in this city that I admire, that I live in and that I revere”, says Oskar Metsavaht

best 750x562 Miss Vans Glamorous Darkness exhibition at Stolen Space Gallery

I popped down to the Stolen Space gallery on Osborn Street tonight for a look around Miss Van’s new show “Glamorous Darkness” and was surprised to have the gallery to myself as I took a look around. For those of you who don’t know, I’m a huge fan of her work and this show didn’t disappoint.

Huge pieces, all hand-painted of course, were on offer and the work maintains the ‘poupées’ aesthetic she has become famous for. The dolls are mixed with a darker sense and according to the SS website, her muses pose in an ‘ambient nature, singing or interacting with each other. They emerge from their loosely painted backgrounds like visions or dreams’

The show is on display until 1st June, so if you’re in the area or coming to London be sure to check it out – you won’t regret it!

London based kidswear brand Boys&Girls have collaborated with Malarky to bring his colour and sense of fun to a playful range of limited edition tshirts and sweat tops for the younger generations. It’s great to see some kidswear in collaboration with a well known street artist from the streets of London.

The ‘urban beach’ themed collection consists of two long sleeve raglan tees with contrast sleeves (£16), a vest top with contrasting trim (£12) and a hooded sweat top (£28). The collection is made from GOTS certified organic cotton and features eco-friendly prints. Each garment also features Malarky’s tag woven into the label. The tops are designed to compliment the rest of the Boys&Girls Spring/Summer collection which includes a range of 70’s inspired lightweight denim with embroidered star and bright stitch details in cool, yet practical, styles such as Balloon Jeans and a Pull-On Kagool.

The limited edition Malarky range caters for ages 1-10 years and is available now.

 Now you should all be familiar with above piece of graffiti because it’s “Future World Machines” by Goldie and was selected by Henry Chalfant to be one of those representing the UK, for his 1987 book “Spraycan Art” about the best graffiti from around the world.

“Future World Machines” was originally created live as a showcase work for the public at “Night Writers” which was the Supreme Graffiti Team’s first gallery show, Wolverhampton Art Gallery, August 1986 and it was inspired by imagery from the film “Blade Runner”.

(The Supreme Graffiti Team consisted of Goldie, Birdie (seen below) and Lewinski and it was one of the main crews that Goldie was a part of during his early painting years)

An update on the Banksy website, in relation to the recent happenings in Syria:

On the 6th March 2011 in the Syrian town of Daraa, fifteen children were arrested and tortured for painting anti-authoritarian graffiti. The protests that followed their detention led to an outbreak of violence across the country that would see a domestic uprising transform into a civil war displacing 9.3 million people from their homes.

The piece is a rework of his classic “Balloon Girl” and it marks the third anniversary of the ongoing conflict in Syria. The reworked image will help to promote #withsyria, a campaign which is looking to rally support for victims of the conflict.

Cover Club is a brand new event hosted Downstairs at the Ace Hotel, putting a spotlight on the brilliant creative minds behind today’s and yesterday’s most iconic album artwork.

They kick off their first event on Wednesday 12th March with Terry Pastor, the man behind David Bowie‘s Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust album covers. But although these may be his most recognised works, the evening will delve deeper into Pastor’s back catalogue of album artwork for the likes of British prog rock pioneers Soft Machine and Byzantium.

Inviting Terry to the stage, he will talk the audience through his signature aesthetic of the sleeves he created and the fascinating stories behind them. These include meetings in pubs with Bowie (before Bowie hit the big time), to discovering by accident that Pastor’s artwork was used for one of Uri Geller’s albums covers!

Other questions raised will be what artistic techniques did Pastor use? What is the inspiration behind his work? What is his relationship to music? What is the state of today’s music artwork industry? What are the rules of album artwork?

To top it all off special guest DJs will soundtrack the night in reference to the music that inspired Pastor’s work.

noname1 Thierry Noir: A Retrospective at The Howard Griffin Gallery

From 3rd April, Howard Griffin Gallery presents a retrospective of the life and work of infamous artist Thierry Noir. In 1984, Noir was the first artist to illegally paint mile upon mile of the Berlin Wall. Noir wanted to perform one real revolutionary act: to paint the Wall, to transform it, to make it ridiculous, and ultimately to help destroy it.

Noir’s iconic, bright and seemingly innocent works painted on this deadly border symbolised a sole act of defiance and a lone voice of freedom. In this landmark exhibition at Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch, the artist’s first solo show, original works will be exhibited on a concrete wall bisecting the space alongside rarely seen photographs, interviews and films, juxtaposing old and new to reassess Noir’s enduring legacy and contribution to society.

A number of artists, musicians and free thinkers settled in West Berlin during the 1980s despite the difficulties of the time. Within a group which included David Bowie and Iggy Pop, was a rebellious young French artist called Thierry Noir. Thierry Noir was born in 1958 in Lyon, France and moved to Berlin in 1982 with one suitcase.

By chance he settled in a squat overlooking the Wall at the border of East and West Berlin. One day in 1984 Noir spontaneously started to paint the Wall and continued to do so each day for five years with whatever paint he could scavenge from nearby construction sites. Noir’s aim was not to embellish the Wall but to demystify it. As Noir says, “I did nothing but react to its sadness.” During this time Noir would sell small paintings on cardboard at local restaurants to survive.

Commissioned by Create London, Moniker Projects and The London Legacy Development Corporation, Your Ad Here is a celebration of these businesses which are so important to the local community and economy, but that wouldn’t normally have the resources for large-scale advertising. It also sets out to connect them to the large and diverse community of artists in east London and to create partnerships across the business and creative sectors, that we hope will improve community relationships and opportunities for growth in both areas.

Seven artists, all with connections to east London have been commissioned to get the ball rolling. This will be followed by an open call which will give up to 30 other artists the chance to submit their ideas for an advert. The commissioned artists are: David Bachelor, Jeremy Deller, Ruth Ewan, Lauren Godfrey, Hayden Kays, Lucas Price, Samara Scott and James Brown. You can see some of their work here.

Banksy posted a new image of some stencil work that pokes some fun at social media and everyone’s need for attention (through notifications).

In a time where a lot of people are glued to their phones, this rings true, especially when you see people head down, walking into lamp posts on the way home from work because they can’t take their eyes off of their mobile device.

What do you think?

UPDATE: We were quick to pull the trigger on this one, turns out it’s not a Banksy, apologies all…

Very Nearly Almost, the UK’s premier international graffiti and street art mag has hit a landmark 25 issues and it’s a pleasure to write about such an achievement. Through the past 24 issues they have been one of the top voices on documenting the scene across the globe and their hard work has paid off with this celebratory issue.

Starting in 2006 as an independent black & white zine, VNA has grown to a full-colour institution. Receiving love and support the world over from artists, galleries and fans alike, this is our biggest, most jam-packed issue to date.

Featuring work from the legendary cartoons of Kevin Lyons, the amazingly evocative work of Chloe Early, and incredible talent of Dan Kitchener. Their work sits alongside a couple of Antipodean artists, tattooist and painter, Sprinkles, and the skate-punk skull-thrasher, Ben Brown. A photo feature from Nils Müller keeps all bases covered, as well as their regular city spotlights on street stickers, paste ups and spray-painted spots, this time amongst the bright lights of London, Hong Kong and Łódz.

The icing on the cake for this issue is the feature on Swoon. The full interview, exclusive studio shots and a huge insight into the projects that Swoon dedicates most of her time to. From helping rebuild Haiti, to putting a new roof on a church with her Braddock Tiles project, this feature is one not to miss!

We previously wrote about the Absolut Karnival limited edition bottle, and as part of the brand’s global campaign, Transform Today, Absolut has announced a new project with graphic novelist Rafael Grampá, one of the featured artists of the campaign.

Entitled Next Frame, the collaboration will invite users from around the world to make plot decisions within an original graphic novel created by Grampá – as he writes it. Once the story is complete, Absolut will work with Grampá to transform the still drawings into an animated film, which will premiere in Berlin at MADE, a creative space by Absolut, on March 15th.

The Next Frame project kicked off this week, inviting users to contribute to the storyline at Facebook.com/Absolut. Users have multiple points of intervention where they can decide how the characters will progress in the story. After each decision, Grampá will create the next piece of the story, inventing new places for the characters to explore up until the next crucial moment that users can provide input.

After two weeks of international online collaboration, ending on February 21st Grampá will polish the final film, which will then be unveiled at the MADE in Berlin on March 15th.

The goal of the Transform Today campaign is to inspire people to tap into their creative potential and explore their ability to create a new future.

londonstreetart The Alternative London Tour

I’m a lover of London’s street art and I’ve seen some eye popping work come and go around the city’s East end – home to London’s art scene. But I never knew who had done it and how. Some of it seems quite frankly impossible and I’m lead to believe Spider-Man had swung through with a couple spray cans showing off some of his creative flare. I wondered how humans were capable of reaching some of these places to create what seems like such a time consuming piece of art. Are these people super human??

I needed answers!

I heard the buzz surrounding The Alternative London tour long before I got off my lazy butt and decided to experience it for myself. There are countless reviews on this free tour of London’s street art and nearly all of which are people absolutely raving about it. I wondered how good a free tour could be but figured I had nothing to lose even if it was sucky.

I took the tour in autumn and was shocked by the mass of people that turned up. Considering it’s a tour of street art I was also surprised to see such a random crowd, consisting of middle class Mums, young hipsters, Spanish tourists and just about every other social group you can think of. We were split up and I learned that our tour guide would be Ben – A street artist in his 20’s who is incredibly passionate about street art. This guy really knows his stuff and his love and enthusiasm for it is infectious. The tour begins with some history on London’s East End which was actually dead interesting.

no photos please The Alternative London Tour

Did you know that after the war they had too many canons from the ships so they put them to use by turning them into street bollards. If you see a bollard today it still resembles the same design, canon shaft with a ball on top! – One for the pub trivia, you can thank me later.

It didn’t take long for Ben to start pointing out some hidden art that I had never even noticed. As we reached the heart of Brick Lane he began to explain some of the more famous pieces by Roa and Dahl. He lead us into the world of street art and I discovered that it’s more than just spraying walls.. it’s a culture, a way of life. There’s ingenious methods used to execute giant pieces and various ways these artists make money and promote themselves. I had all of my earlier questions answered and it suddenly occurred to me why I had never witnessed any of these works being created. It was fascinating.

My favourite piece was a cowboy by an artist named Elmac. He uses a method called ‘Swirling’ where he freezes the paint then creates extremely lifelike portraits by repeating lines. What a total legend!

IMG 3858 The Alternative London Tour

Of course the art is continuously changing so each walk becomes a totally different experience. I would be tempted to take the walk again to have some newer pieces explained. We are blessed in London to have such a giant showcase of famous work. That mind blowing art you see on the corner isn’t just a one off, these artists tour the world leaving their mark in major capitals and what you’re actually witnessing is the work of those who are extremely well known in the world of urban art. You wouldn’t believe the work they put in.

Even though it’s been described as a free tour it is advised that you tip the guide. They do it for the love of it but earn nothing other than what people decide to give. I personally threw in £10 but in all honesty they deserve more. It’s one of the best London tours I’ve been on and I’ve been on a few!

Please note that THIS IS NOT A BANKSY TOUR.. He’s so 2010.

IMG 3867 The Alternative London Tour

I would recommend this for anybody like me that has a slight interest in street art and would love to know more about what goes into it. I love that I can now walk through East London and name the artists and point out the less obvious pieces that my buddies usually miss.

Tours start and finish near Spitalfields Market on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 12p.m & 7p.m, Fridays at 12p.m. and Saturdays at 12p.m, 12:30.p.m, 3p.m & 3:30p.m – walks are 2 hours long. Bike tours start from February. Consider booking via the website as they get pretty busy.

Absolut is launching a brand new limited edition called Absolut Karnival featuring artwork by Brazilian graphic novel artist and writer, Rafael Grampá. The passion fruit and orange blossom flavoured edition aims to capture the transformative energy of Brazilian Carnival.

“When Absolut asked me to collaborate on Absolut Karnival, I saw it as an opportunity to express my love of a festival that lets everyone be free and equal,” says Rafael Grampá. “In Carnival, everyone celebrates together. There is a beautiful, unique and uncontrollable feeling that our differences can be put behind us. We become aware of our own power to change ourselves and the world.”

The resulting artwork features a cast of colourful characters, created by Grampá, on parade around the bottle. A dog dressed up as a rooster, a young man wearing the head of an old man, a blue-faced giant, happy to give a hug to whoever wants one, a beautiful “Queenfish,” and a character Grampá dubs “The Freedom Knight” and describes as a typical festivalgoer who fights taboos and prejudice with joy and music.

The new edition goes on sale 25th January, available exclusively at Selfridges.

noname Phlegm   The Bestiary at The Howard Griffin Gallery, London

The Howard Griffin Gallery have a stormer of an exhibition coming up with one of our favourite artists, Phlegm. We’re VERY excited to catch the opening of this show, where Phlegm creates a modern bestiary within his own universe.

Through an immersive and large scale installation in wood, clay and plaster, Phlegm presents a taxonomic categorisation of his creatures and collects them in one place for the first time. Within the expansive sections of the installation, and working in bas and high relief, Phlegm displays a series of works akin to the Lascaux cave paintings. Inspired by the bestiarys of old, these works contain untold fables and narratives.

A bestiary was an illustrated compendium of animals, half real and half imagined, setting out the natural history of each beast within and its moral significance. A bestiary was not a scientific text and while some beasts and descriptions were quite accurate, others were completely fanciful. Such bestiarys belonged to the ancient world and were popularised during the Middle Ages as didactic tools.

The show opens on 1st February, so make sure you pop that date in your diary! We can’t wait

peel1 The Peel Street Project

The Peel Street Project is something that has took over two years to get the final go ahead from Wolverhampton City Council and it now means that a run down subway, in the heart of Wolverhampton itself, has now been transformed into a huge art gallery – with the help of a lot of graffiti and street artists from across the UK.

The entire project has been a labour of love for one man, Paul Pilgrim, and we caught up with Paul to have a chat with him about it.

peel2 The Peel Street Project

“The Peel Street Project has been a huge success in my eyes, a project that has been in the making now for the best part of two and a half years, from when I first contacted the council to try and get a legal art space underway in Wolverhampton.

Many years ago the city was at the epicentre of the graffiti scene, this was in the late eighties and early nineties, when iconic painters Goldie and Temper burst onto the art scene whilst originating from the Wolverhampton graffiti scene themselves.

My goal was to succeed in obtaining a legal graffiti space, where artists would be able to take their time on pieces they wanted to create and paint at free will, enabling them to produce works of art of the highest quality and in doing so showcase to the public what graffiti/street art has to offer to the world.”

peel4 The Peel Street Project

“Graffiti art is now, quite rightly, recognised as an art form rather than a form of vandalism, attracting a wide range of interested parties, from art critics to the average person on the street.

There is currently a huge market for urban art creations in all it’s forms when once it was more of a back street form of self expression, with artists ducking and diving to produce a quick half hearted hour long throw up or bomb.”

peel3 The Peel Street Project

 “Once my written proposal was given the go ahead, I pursued the support of 30 of the most talented street artists whose work was respected and admired by the urban/street art community. I approached artists known locally as well as further afield from areas such as Worcester, Manchester, Cardiff and Sheffield to come together with the challenge to, in one day, transform this rundown underpass into a multi coloured masterpiece.

I was also very aware that this project could be the first of many to develop the outskirts of the city and transform Wolverhampton’s degenerated subways and underpasses, so obviously I wanted it to be successful.”

peel5 The Peel Street Project

peel6 The Peel Street Project

“The council had seen examples of the quality of work that would be created beforehand as part of the initial proposal but were awaiting the outcome of the project and the finished pieces before authorising more project sites.

In order to ensure that the sites are painted to an exceptionally high standard, each site I am involved in are run on an invite only basis, my main aim, and what I hope I have created, is a space where like minded artists can go to create their artistic vision and to display their talent for many to enjoy, without fear of consequences.”

peel7 The Peel Street Project

peel8 The Peel Street Project

“Unsurprisingly, to those who are interested in urban art or graffiti, there are many artists like myself who are dedicated to this art form as a hobby and who will spend a lot of time and money planning and creating their vibrant works of art and bringing run down areas of our city to life.”

peel9 The Peel Street Project

peel10 The Peel Street Project

“I would like to thank all of the talented artists involved in the project for coming down, giving their time and support to the development of this project and enabling it to be a success. It was a fantastic opportunity for myself to work with them all and to be able to give them a location where they can flex their skills and that members of the public can also see their amazing works of art.”

peel11 The Peel Street Project

peel12 The Peel Street Project

Councillor John Reynolds, Wolverhampton City Council’s cabinet member for city services, said: “This is a very artistic way of tidying up an eyesore for visitors to Peel Street car park. These artists are very talented and it is great to be able to give them a platform to showcase their work and demonstrate that graffiti can be a welcome addition to an area.”

The Last Breath Project aims to give buildings that are soon to be demolished a ‘last’ chance to showcase some beautiful work from a talented artist.

The very first saw Bisser give Blackfriars Cafe in Southwark a one-off beautification before materiality will be replaced by a residential construction on the back of regeneration plans in the area.

Blackfriars Cafe closes its eyes after a brief lifetime of 35 years; half the expected lifetime of a human being. When Bisser finished, they gathered, photographed the work, admired the building and waved Blackfriars Cafe a final “good bye”.

The first beautification and exhibition behind, they are currently preparing for the next episode.

Write to tom@lastbreathproject.co.uk if you want to witness the next Last Breath of a remarkable, soon-to-be-demolished building or if you desire to be one of the next “beautifiers”.

From Last Breath:

“When inspecting the building a couple of months ago, an elderly man appeared with his camera in his hands. He told me he drops by weekly to photograph the transition and decay of the building. He himself, used to go to the cafe as a teenager with his parents. The man shared nostalgic reminiscing and after taking his final picture, he remarked, “I am really sad this is happening, it feels as if a part of my childhood is being taken away from me”.

81zHEp4NY L Wes Lang Book Review

We received a copy of the new Wes Lang book for review recently and having had a better chance to sit down and leaf through it this week, it was about time for me to pop the review up.

The book, a collection of illustrations and paintings by Lang depicts some of his most controversial work, which melts together images of Americana and the Wild West alongside contemporary pop culture and kitsch iconography. The end result is something that suggest a view ‘war and hatred and hope and idealism’.

Wes has previously been published in Playboy magazine alongside his many exhibitions across the US. This, on the other hand, is the first published collection of his work. This is a book that gives the reader a huge amount of images that allow you to stare at the paper works and the immense detail inside the hand drawn depictions of American history, biker culture, tattoo iconography, ornament, Native American art, pin-ups, newspaper headlines and Taoist texts.

The book also contains an essay by author James Frey and will undoubtedly appeal to both Lang’s substantial online following and to fans of Americana.

Cover 750x618 Book review: Project Zoltar   foreword by Jake & Dinos Chapman

I was excited to receive the press release for the new Project Zoltar book this week and very happy when a copy arrived shortly after. For those of you who don’t know Project Zoltar, they’re marking 10 years of visual culture in this lavish book.

Upon opening the envelope I was greeted with a luxurious silk bound book with a purple cover and gold embossing – lovely to look at and touch. According the release, the book looks to echo the craft and design of ancient religious texts and acts as a 10 year reference manual of this art, fashion and design house.

“Zoltar was born a bastard child of acid house and punk rock. A molotov cocktail of art, film and clothing.
One Part social comment and One part sartorial excellence…..Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

Page 4 750x617 Book review: Project Zoltar   foreword by Jake & Dinos Chapman

Dan Macmillan and Kieron Livingstone act as a deliberately disruptive entity, Project Zoltar was born as an antidote to the dying art of British eccentricity (!). Fusing both fashion and art, they have infiltrated creative institutions over the last ten years, with on-going and ever-changing showcases of guerrilla artwork.

I remember seeing the Shamanic work for Nike back in 2010 at an exhibition at the Nike 1948 space in Shoreditch and the visuals in this book were a reminder of just how exceptional those pieces are. The characters are huge and the level of detail that went into them still amazes me today.

Page 6 750x617 Book review: Project Zoltar   foreword by Jake & Dinos Chapman

The guys have exhibited the work of Marlon Richards, famed photographer Mick Rock and New York surrealist painter Robert Hawkins. The Project Zoltar clothing range, designed by Macmillan and Livingstone, has also been fuelled by collaborations with notable designers Bella Freud and Anita Pallenberg.

This book is a visual delight, one which illustrates just how very leftfield and non-conformist the collective are. As I turned from page to page, it’s a case of being presented with a flurry or arresting visuals, all of which stitch together their rich history.

PUBLIC STEALTH WARNING: Herrods* is a complex art installation and is in no way trying to ‘pass off’ any brandalism or subvertising of existing corporate entities as itself.

The irony of distorting the viewers perception of the expected is the exact opposite, we would be quite disappointed if their values were associated with us. All subversive representations of brands are an artistic discussion, questioning contemporary societies relationship with the values we are fed, and forced to consume via billboards, television, magazines and digital media. We reserve the right, through our art, to question the morals of anything in our society.

*not to be confused with any mini mart in Knightsbridge with a similar name (this a serious contemptorary art gallery questioning mass consumption, please buy our stuff).

The Leyden Gallery in East London are proud to present a selection of prints from the internationally acclaimed artist Antony Micallef.

Micallef has always been a firm favourite of ours here at UKSA and since winning the second prize at the BP Portrait Award in 2000, he has gone on to group shows at The Royal Academy and The Tate Britain – strength to strength.

Micallef manages to merge the concerns of pop culture with a baroque touch, bringing this fusion to dizzying ends, which he has likened to “watching a Disney movie that slowly transforms into violence and pornography and you don’t know how or when the change happens.”

Independent titles and London Evening Standard team up with Space for Giants to tackle elephant crisis.

The Independent, The Independent on Sunday, i and London Evening Standard are proud to launch The Independent’s Elephant Appeal Christmas campaign in association with Space for Giants, with support from Jude Law, Clare Balding, Boris Johnson and Bear Grylls. Space for Giants raises money to combat elephant poaching in Africa.

This campaign will open a light on the ongoing conservation crisis and help to raise much needed funds through exclusive auctions for a variety of incredible gifts and experiences – from VIP tickets to Henry V, with a backstage Champagne reception with Jude Law at the Noel Coward Theatre, to Boris Johnson’s signed cycling helmet, or a survival weekend at the Bear Grylls Survival Academy.

The Chapman Brothers have donated an original sculpture, entitled ‘My Brother Went To The Circus And All I Got Was This Lousy Souvenir’. The stunning original ‘hellscape’ was created especially for appeal and is in the classically striking and thought provoking Chapman Brothers style.

Looks awesome doesn’t it?

Led by the proprietor of The Independent and London Evening Standard, Evgeny Lebedev, along with Space for Giants CEO Dr. Max Graham, a team will visit the 10,000 km² Laikipia Plateau in north-central Kenya. The Independent will be reporting regularly from the ground in Kenya – visiting conservation areas, reporting on the illegal poaching economy and highlighting the education and training programme in place to train rangers to defend against poachers.

Last year, thousands of Africa’s elephants were killed to supply illegal ivory to markets throughout the world. Increasingly, revenue generated from this blood ivory is being using to fuel war and terrorism in Africa. The Independent’s Elephant Appeal is designed to raise money to support rangers on the ground to protect Kenya’s elephants from armed poachers, together with Space for Giants’ longer-term work to create new wildlife sanctuaries where elephants will be safe, forever.

Amol Rajan, Editor of The Independent, said:

“The Independent has always supported conservation and end environmental issues. The Independent Elephant Appeal has a vital contribution to make to Space for Giants and its incredible work in protecting these wonderful creatures.”

Dr. Max Graham, CEO of Space for Giants, said:

“We are so proud to be a part of The Independent Elephant Appeal and thank them for shining their hugely valuable support. There is grave concern for the survival of these incredible animals and the money and attention we raise through this campaign will make a real difference on the ground in Kenya.”

Roger Gastman released a new print this week, titled “Tools of Criminal Mischief: The Can IV” and it’s a bit of a stunner.

Simple, yet effective, position of the Krylon can:

I have a huge collection of vintage spray paint and markers that I have been collecting for years. This collection features all Krylon cans.

With “Graffiti” and “Street Art” becoming such huge buzz words, and affordable art being more accessible through sites like 1xRun, it’s fun to remember the tools that made a lot of it possible.” – Roger Gastman

It’s always a pleasure to leaf through the Stickerbomb Review: Stickerbomb XL books and when I found out there was a new one, we made sure we grabbed a copy for review.

The latest from Laurence King and Studio Rarekwai is a larger format than it’s predecessors, hence the XL name. The book is stuffed with 160 commissioned stickers in colour and black and white and it also includes 16 pages of die cut vinyl stickers too.

Stickers are a huge part of the ‘street art’ genre and this books includes works by Mr Penfold, Broken Fingaz, The Yok, Ronzo, Nylon and even a couple from our very own Matt Buchanan aka Deadcert Design.

I highly recommend this book, for sticker fans and it would make a great Christmas gift. Pick your copy of Stickerbomb XL Review: Stickerbomb XL up from Amazon.co.uk for just over £13.

It’s time for some more news on Banksy. It’s being reported that “Flower Girl” has sold for $209,000 at auction in the largest auction of the artists work in the US.

The owner of the petrol station had the wall removed entirely, obviously spotting an opportunity to make some money when he found one of Banksy’s pieces on the side. It’s also reported that none of the money will go to the artist in this case.

Alongside this one, Julien’s Auctions also sold “Black Bobby” for $37500, “TV Girl” for $137000, assorted installation panels for $23,750, and “Umbrella Rat” for $50,000. That’s a lot of US dollars right there!

Viral Art: How the internet has shaped street art and graffiti, is a new ebook by Vandalog editor-in-chief RJ Rushmore. Due out in 2 weeks time, the entire book will be available to read online at ViralArt.net.

What is Viral Art about?

Viral Art traces how the histories of street art and graffiti have been shaped by communication technologies, from trading photos by hand to publishing books to sharing photos online. It’s the most comprehensive look to date at what the internet has done for street art and graffiti. Conceptualizing the internet as a public space, RJ concludes by arguing that the future of street art and graffiti may lie in digital interventions.

Why does Viral Art matter?

RJ explains:

If you want to understand street art and graffiti, you have to understand how books, movies, magazines, photographs and the internet have influenced artists and fans. Viral Art gets into all of that in depth.

Today we live on our laptops and smartphones, so RJ argues that the best way for street art and graffiti to stay relevant as forms of publicly engaged art is for these artists to take over the public space of the internet. It’s a claim sure to cause controversy in the street art, graffiti and internet art communities, but it might be the best way to save all three from irrelevance.

This isn’t just another street art book with pretty pictures cheer-leading the movement on.

It’s history and theory with a critical stance, and RJ’s plea to keep the core values of street art and graffiti alive in a digital world.

What’s inside?

In researching for this project, RJ interviewed over 50 members of the street art and graffiti communities. In Viral Art, you’ll find never-before-published interviews, quotes and anecdotes from Banksy, Shepard Fairey, KATSU, Poster Boy, Ron English, Martha Cooper and many more.

The cover of Viral Art is an animated GIF by General Howe, featuring artwork by Diego Bergia and Jay Edlin as well as photographs by RJ Rushmore and Martha Cooper.

How much will the eBook cost?

Nothing. You will be able to read Viral Art for free online. There will also be PDF and EPUB versions available for download.

How can fans support the book launch?

To help get the word out about Viral Art, fans can join the campaign on Thunderclap.it to automatically share their excitement about Viral Art with their friends through Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr when the book launches on December 16th.

Uncle Rum Knuckles liked a drink or two, was never an aggressive man but could be pretty tasty with his fists if pushed, took pride in being “a gent” with the ladies and looked after his appearance.

The new exhibition from Jake & Dinos Chapman opened this week at The Serpentine Sackler Gallery, the show is called “Come and See”. Those of you who know the Chapman Brother’s work will no doubt be excited for this spectacle.

The exhibition itself demonstrates a range of the artists’ output from paintings, drawings, printmaking and sculpture through to film, music and literature – all exploring the confrontational work which always revolves around controversial subjects with some very dark humour.

It was back in the late 90s that I first came across their work, having seen some incredible pieces at the Saatchi Gallery and I am very excited for this one. I imagine I will be standing/sitting and staring at this pieces for some time, spending hours checking out the details, especially on the pieces made up of tiny models.

Screen Shot 2013 11 20 at 15.09.08 Introducing: Skate Interiors

Skate Interiors launches it’s first ever furniture exhibition, a showcase of conceptual furniture made from brand new or recycled Skateboards and components, a collaboration of talent and bespoke skateboard art from Barry Kay, Si Skipp and Scott Horsey Walker.

The 29th and 30th November will see a furniture exhibition pop up at the White Building in Hackney Wick, showcasing an eclectic array of never seen before lamps, lighting, hooks, tables, chairs, coat stands, fixtures & fittings – prices range from £25.00 – £3,000.

Every piece is unique and a one off, some of the work created from new skateboards alongside those from recycle products and materials; normally associated with high end skateboarding/ramp construction.

“I wanted to create stand out pieces for homes & offices but this is only the beginning… I’m exciting about working with Si & Scott on other collaborations – we are bursting with ideas!” Barry Kay

“The recycled boards are from sponsored/pro/former pro skaters, the boards have been used for high performance levels, no one will have owned a coffee table that has slid down a twenty stair handrail, I like that.”  Si Skipp

“It has been excellent to see the amount of enthusiasm, creativity and ability one person has to fabricate anything into something” Scott Horsey Walker

It’s FREE entry, FREE parking, and FREE drinks for the early birds through the door.

D Face Flat1 Review: The Art of D*Face: One Man & His Dog

D*Face has a new book out called “The Art of D*Face: One Man & His Dog” and this lavish volume of work from one of the most prolific street artists of the last decade is a real beauty.

‘I’d rather people hate my work than find it nice. Nice implies mediocrity and a lack of tenacity – You don’t love it and you wouldn’t care if you lost it. I’d rather upset and annoy; I’d rather be that stone in your shoe.’

The book is a large format hardback volume encompassing his continued street work along with a great insight into the path that led him from his early beginnings to a slew of sell-out exhibitions across the globe.

Chock-full of previously unseen images, his work process and studio, it tells the stories behind his amazing work – an insider’s view if you will.

Featured projects include: The Ridiculous Pool (2011), created by a crew of skateboarders skating in an empty swimming pool with remote controlled spray cans attached to the underside of their boards, The Zombie Oscars (2010), made up of superhero-sized sculptures of Oscars revealing an inner rotten core being placed around LA, and Giant Concrete Spraycans (2008) popping up all over London.

As you can see, the book is a great looking addition to any bookshelf or coffee table for avid art fans, we highly recommend it!

The London Westbank Gallery are proud to present an exhibition from Mark Bodé and Cheo.

Mark is the son of the legendary cartoon artist Vaughn Bodé and the exhibition is an acknowledgement to Bodé’s influence on the graffiti and comic book world.

Junkwaffel was apparently released to compile his unpublished early stories, and for that reason it is an essential title for Bodé’s fans and comic devotee’s.

The exhibition opens to the public on 22nd November – catch it whilst you can!

SOKER:

“Some might say that Cheo is like the modern day David Niven of the graffiti world, a red blooded lothario and probably the worlds most virtuous, suave, debonair and the most beautiful quaffered men of modern times”

mike425 Mike Ballard: Advertising The Invisible by the Residence Gallery

Mike Ballard’s new show opens on 22nd November at The Residence Gallery in London. In association with Beyond Ultra and The Hackney Snare Drum Awareness Program, Mike has teamed up for his new show “Advertising The Invisible”.

Featuring a series of audio scores and incidental music for unmade fictional films, the installation includes props, production stills, set design, graphical scores and more. The music is presented by The Aerosol Orchestra, Sollomans Stash, The Clapton Rifles and Long Range Desert Group. The exhibition presents starting points for the viewer to draw their own story, and conclusion, much as an archaeologist might envisage an ancient dwelling and a whole way of life associated with it, allowing us in principle to trace latent narratives underlying manifest fragments.

Ballard articulates the show “to play on the associations with sound and image and how the sounds affect our notions of action and intrigue.”

In 1986 at the age of 14, Mike Ballard broke into his art career as the graffiti artist ‘CEPT’. His work quickly gained notoriety on the streets of East London, defined by his unique mix of letterforms, loud exaggerated colours and pop art appropriated super humans painted across walls and shop fronts. For over 20 years Ballard/CEPT has been disrupting perceptions of the urban landscape with snippets of beat-sampling visual codes rewired from pop art history, comics, hip hop music, explosions and clouds.

In 2007 Mike Ballard graduated from St. Martins art School with an MA in fine art. Now working from his studio in London he continues to exhibit regularly, specialising in creating immersive installations. Ballard’s paintings, and painting components of his constructed environments are not about surface or the physicality of mark-making, but are windows into other spaces that destabilize our sense of place. Using a range of media, Ballard aims to challenge our ideas of hierarchy associated with image, object and sound.

New Era celebrate a new partnership with Ground Release to launch their latest Print Sessions at the New Era Flagship store in Soho on 7th November.

To celebrate, New Era will be releasing two limited edition t-shirts by graphic designer, Ojey. Alongside these shirts, a range of prints from international artists will be on sale, from artists including Roid, Pantone, Kem5 and Soten.

Commenting on the partnership, Thomas Menjou, Director of Ground Release said:

“The New Era “Fly your own flag” is something that really stood out to me because Ground Release is all about providing opportunities for a diverse range of artists from all over the globe. We wanted to showcase unique artwork from our global network which is affordable but still very limited, at the same time we were looking to align with a brand that encourages and celebrates originality and diversity”.

Three days prior to the in store showcase, the prints will also be released online on 4th November at 2pm GMT.

After taking a ‘break’ yesterday, Banksy is back with another piece on the side of the Hell’s Kitchen Hustler Club in New York.

From a report on the Gothamist, who got the following from the club:

“We’re honored that Banksy chose the Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club New York to share his art. We respect the art and artist; while we’d love to leave the work in place, it’s required we lift the gate when we open for business, so after the public has the day to enjoy it, we will remove the door to keep it safe from vandals until we determine where it can be displayed in the future—hopefully inside of the club.”

The caption on the Banksy site reads “Waiting in vain… at the door of the club.”

“Are you the sort of person who enjoys going to art galleries, but wished they had more gravel in them? Then this temporary exhibition space is for you. Housing just two paintings but also featuring a bench, some carpet and complimentary refreshments. Opens today through Sunday 11am til midnight.”

“People ask why I want to have an exhibition in the streets, but have you been to an art gallery recently? They’re full.”

Banksy’s latest piece has gone up in the Bed Stuy area of New York on the 17th day of the “Better Out Than In” ‘exhibition. Depicting two Geishas, the piece sits on top of a brick arch, making good use of the environment around it.

According the New York Post, Mayor Bloomberg is on the hunt to catch the elusive artist:

 “Graffiti does ruin people’s property and it’s a sign of decay and loss of control…Nobody’s a bigger supporter of the arts than I am. I just think there are some places for art and some places where — no art,”

“You running up to somebody’s property or public property and defacing it is not my definition of art,”

Also, according to the post, the piece is in Williamsburg, not Bed Stuy.

The audio guide: “Shoeshine, depicts “the powerful figure of Ronald McDonald waving impassively as his ridiculously oversized clown shoes are buffed to a fine shine.”

day 09 01 Banksy Lower East Side

Another day, another new Banksy piece and this time in the Lower East Side area of New York.

It seems that Mr Banksy has gone political this time as the installation includes a black car sprayed with men holding guns, looking into the air. Three horse are sprayed onto the white truck behind the car, bucking in terror, wearing night vision goggles.

According to NY Daily News, the barrel to the left of the car and truck has a 1-800 number on it that links to the audio from a classified video that was originally leaked by Wikileaks in 2010. The audio is ripped from a 39 minute video from July 12, 2007 in Baghdad. The strike left up to 18 dead and this included a Reuters photographer and also wounded two innocent children.

Following on from the piece we reported about last week, Banksy is holding a month long show on the streets of New York.

“Better Out Than In” will be held on the city’s streets, with the first painting having gone up yesterday. It features two boys reaching up towards a sign that says “graffiti is a crime”. Rumour has it that this is located in Chinatown.

Each piece will be accompanied by an audio guide, and in standard Banksy style, these will be very tongue in cheek. There will be a phone number stencilled next to each of the paintings, prompting passers by to call the line and hear about the piece.

“You’re looking at a type of picture called ‘graffiti,’ from the Latin ‘graffito,’ which means ‘graffiti’ with an ‘O.'” You can listen to the first recording on the Banksy website too.

Keep your eyes peeled on the site for further updates.

UPDATE. It looks like the piece has been destroyed already. Thanks to The Verge for the update.

It looks like Banksy has hit California with a few cans of black spray paint. The result is the mural pictured above and has been dubbed “Better Out Than In”.

It features the character being sick, puking up a stream of pink flowers on the wall. The website features the text “October 2013″, so keep your eyes peeled for more to come in the near future as we can only assume that there’s more to come…

Opening Night John Dolan exhibition photos

Last Thursday saw the opening of the breakout solo exhibition by John Dolan at Howard Griffin Gallery.

The exhibition, entitled George the Dog, John the Artist featured new large scale original works by John Dolan and collaborative works by over 40 top international street artists and graffiti writers including ROA, Steve ESPO Powers, Sever, Gaia, David Walker, Stik, Maser, Thierry Noir, RUN, Ian Stevenson, Cityzen Kane, Ronzo, Martin Ron, Liqen, Dscreet, Pablo Delgado, MadC, CEPT, C215 and BRK.

Howard Griffin Gallery, where Dolan’s exhibition is being staged, is located along Shoreditch High Street, in view of the spot where Dolan used to sit and draw. While Dolan’s personal and artistic journey has been long, the geographical journey towards his first solo exhibition has been remarkably small.

The gallery sent over some great pictures from the opening night for us to share with you. Enjoy!

I’ve been testing out the London Street Art Tours app recently and using a Nexus 7, it’s been a pleasure to try it out.

The app features street art locations, mapped out across various areas of the city of London. Using custom markers, the interface allows you to navigate around town using maps for areas, detailing pieces all over the city by both local and international street artists from Banksy to Sweet Toof, Robbo to C215.

Using the GPS and 3G connection I was able to pinpoint various pieces in my local area of Bethnal Green/Hackney Wick whilst out and about – I could then find out a bit more about the artist.

To gain access to more of the maps, you do have to pay, so this may not be for everyone, but it does extend the activity of the app itself. There is also another version of the app which includes some other city maps, including Bristol.

EFE1 Nelly Duff Press Release: Ben EINE Tenderloin A Z

Nelly Duff presents an exclusive one night exhibition with Ben EINE, in the heart of London’s East End.

The exhibition will be held in a disused warehouse, one of the last remnants of industrial Shoreditch. Since the turn of the millennium EINE was instrumental in developing the area into the artistic hub that it is today, and his bold use of colour and signature spray dust finish has cemented him as supreme ‘Font Smith’ of the Street Art genre worldwide.

The show marks the release of EINE’s 52 colour screen printed edition ‘Tenderloin’ A-Z, which takes its name from an area of San Francisco and brings the West Coast of America to EINE’s home audience!
This exhibition will also launch ‘The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti’ by Dr. Rafael Schacter, co-curator of the Tate Modern’s renowned Street Art exhibition. EINE is one of the featured artists in this new book from Aurum Press which documents Street Art across the globe. EINE will customise 10 x ATLAS covers with the letter A, available randomly with the purchase of the book on the night.

Date: September 18th 2013
Time: 6-9pm
Venue: Secret East London location- address to be revealed 1 day before the opening Nelly Duff on social media.

 Homeless artists stage independent exhibition at the Coningsby Gallery

A group of homeless and vulnerably housed artists in central London’s Fitzrovia have partnered with a local gallery to host their first major exhibition.

The Coningsby Gallery, close to Goodge Street underground has donated its space to the up and coming community group run by ARTfitzrovia, where artists living on the streets, in sheltered accommodation and on the margins of society will display their works for sale.

The group meet on a weekly basis, where members paint, draw and discuss topics which are important to them. Born out of the Soup Kitchen at the American church where a small art group was held, it has developed further by Jake Evans.

Now held in the community space at Allsouls Clubhouse, the members of ARTfitzrovia have full ownership of the group, set the agenda and aim to run the group as an independent collective. Part of this will be to create revenue from selling their work and paying for the space and materials. Until then, the group is supported by small donations and volunteers.

John Dolan at work George the Dog, John the Artist

You may have seen an artist at work at the bottom of Shoreditch High St, opposite Tesco in the past few years?

John Dolan has sat every day for the last 3 years documenting the surrounding architecture through his portrayals of the street. For one week, the Howard Griffin Gallery presents an exhibition of works by John.

Having lived in London his whole life, he’s been in and out of prison and often found himself homeless. These days he’s greeted by the like of Gilbert and George as they walk past.

In an area that is (was) highly fashionable, he’s documented the constant gentrification in the area and through his work he’s seen the street art and graffiti that has popped up and down from some of the world’s best artists including ROA, Steve ESPO Powers, Sever, Gaia, David Walker, Stik, Remio, Nomers, Maser, Thierry Noir, RUN, Zomby, Christiaan Nagel, Phlegm, Ian Stevenson, Martin Ron, Liqen, Dscreet, Pablo Delgado, MadC, CEPT, C215, BRK and many others.

These artists have collaborated with John by working directly onto the walls of his cityscapes, creating unique pieces, bringing together one of the biggest group shows, depicting an ever-changing area of the city.

Maggie’s Culture Crawl is a 15-mile night-hike full of discovery, culture and surprise to raise money for Maggie’s, an organisation offering free emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.

Working in partnership with Open House, the route offers exclusive access to some of London’s best buildings, including the Gherkin, The Foreign Office, The Royal Geographical Society and EDF Energy London Eye.

Within these extraordinary buildings Maggie’s will be hosting a range of cultural activities with the generous support of a range of partners and contributors, including:

  • A silent disco from BBC Radio 3 DJ’s Nick Luscombe and Max Reinhardt at the Royal Geographical Society

  • Interactive art installation along the route from Rebecca Law – best known for her large scale installations of hanging flowers

  • Immersive experience by artist Robin Blackledge at Maggie’s London

  • Mr Foggs of Mayfair, home of the eccentric British adventurer will create a theatrical world of discovery

There will also be delicious food and drink on offer with a bespoke tea tasting from Fortnum & Mason at the Foreign Office, Box Noodles to keep walkers energised along the route and Leon providing a well deserved breakfast at the finish line at The Gherkin.

Maggie’s Culture Crawl is the first ever charity event of its kind combining art and exhibition, music through to dance and storytelling, and aims to pull together the best of what London has to offer in home-grown world class talent.

Maggie’s supporter, Benedict Cumberbatch:

“The work that Maggie’s Centres do is extraordinary. The Centres are a sanctuary, a place of calm, reflection and help for people who are suffering from cancer.”

Last year’s walkers raised more than £600,000 – enough to run a Maggie’s Centre for a whole year and organisers are keen to beat this target this year.

Maggie’s Culture Crawl participant, Frances Sinnott said:

“I’m taking part in the Maggie’s Culture Crawl as the support Maggie’s offered me during and after my treatment for breast cancer was amazing.  It really helped me get back on my feet and to get my head around the huge changes that happened in my life at the time. The great thing about Maggie’s is that its not only for the person who has been diagnosed with cancer but they also recognise the huge affect that diagnosis has on the families and friends who they also offer support to.”

Beginning at 7.30pm, Maggie’s Culture Crawl is a fun challenge with a great atmosphere, and an ideal opportunity to fundraise with family and friends.

How to get involved

Registration costs £40 £35 (with our special discount) per person and you can register by visiting the website.

Use the promo code ‘BLOGGER’ when signing up and we’ll see you there on the day!

How to Donate

We’ve set up a Just Giving page for donations if you’d like to make one, all of the money will go directly to Maggie’s.

VNA23 FAILE Very Nearly Almost: Issue 23

Issue 23 of VNA features the duo FAILE on the cover, artists who’ve been a favourite of mine for quite some time now.

They invited VNA to their studio in New York to chat about their latest work including the critically acclaimed collaboration with the New York City Ballet.

The issue also features Morning Breath, Michael Sieban, Eelus, Vibes, Prefab77, Days & Peque, Aeon, Moose & Yeti, Tom French, Agostino Iaccuri, Hedof and PeachBeach.

As you can see from the spreads below, it’s the usual high-quality production and content we’ve come to expect from the VNA camp, lush looking photography laced with in depth interviews from the artists above – they keep keepin’ on.

VNA 23 is available with two alternative covers; one is exclusive to their web store and subscribers, while the other is available through their network of stockists.

MONIKER ART FAIR returns this year in a brand new location, Brick Lane’s iconic Old Truman Brewery.

Attracting some of the most renowned and talked about artists, galleries and curators, Moniker is a four day event, shining the spotlight on a generation of artists influenced by the urban environment.

Showcasing established and emerging artists along with a creative programme of events including live painting, talks, tours, film screenings and exclusive art releases, it’s one of the stand out events of the calendar year.

Also, for the first time, Moniker will be sharing the exhibition space with The Other Art Fair. Together, they will form a big destination for London’s Autumn art week.

Galleries confirmed for 2013 include London-based STOLEN SPACE, who represent celebrated artists D*Face and Shepard Fairey, Netherlands LOOK FOR ART who will bring the much-admired duo The London Police back to UK shores, and HANG UP GALLERY who will sell works including secondary market Banksy works.

JEALOUS PRINT STUDIOS return again to host live screen printing, with limited edition prints and affordable editions created and signed by artists on site, whilst ALTERNATIVE LONDON will lead street art tours of the surrounding area and fair walk-throughs with their resident experts.

To supplement the artworks and installations, Moniker will present a series of topical talks, discussions and screenings, with artists, curators and gallerists invited to discuss and debate the burning issues and main talking points currently facing the movement.

Since its inaugural year in 2010, Moniker has championed numerous artists who have gone on to become key players in the contemporary art world , including the likes of Ben Eine, Herakut, and Polly Morgan. This next edition of MONIKER ART FAIR promises to cement its reputation as a leading, taste-making and opinion-forming touchstone in the annual art calendar.

 Introducing: The NEW CultureLabel

Some of you may already know CultureLabel as the go-to place for buying some of the best art and design-led products from artists and designers? No?

Well, if you didn’t, you’re in luck as we’ve caught up with Pete Tullin, the CEO and Cofounder of the company to talk more about what’s instore their relaunch at the beginning of August.

 

UKSA: Hi Pete, could you introduce yourself to our readers; what’s your role at CultureLabel, what’s your background?

P: I’m the co-founder of CultureLabel.com, a curated ecommerce platform that unearths the very best arts and design-led products from galleries, artists and designers in London and now New York. Before we created the website I worked in the arts world for a number of years and had a chance to work on projects with some of the most iconic cultural brands such as Tate and the Royal Academy.

CultureLabel was born out of my passion to see more people access quality art and creative products from these institutions all in one destination, as well as from the best of the London’s galleries, artists, designer-makers, boutiques and collectives.

 

UKSA: What does CultureLabel mean for you?

P: CultureLabel is about a lot of things for me – it’s about championing the true creatives that drive the most culturally iconic cities in the world, nurturing artist and design communities by driving new audiences to their work and in the process offering consumers the chance to live with art and design that holds true artistic integrity, authenticity and that has a real story to tell. It’s a really virtuous circle for everyone involved and that gives me a huge amount of satisfaction on a daily basis.

kilo 1 Kilo Sinstars, FBA

Kilo is a graffiti artist that first started painting back in 1984 and he’s been heavily involved in the game ever since then – whether it be graffiti, breakdancing or just the hip-hop scene in general, he’s been there and done it.

His influence to pick up a spray can came from all the usual sort of things such as “Subway Art” and “Wild Style” but his cousin Zeus, who’s an old London writer that’s relatively unknown in the graffiti world, also made a very big impression on him.

kilo 2 Kilo Sinstars, FBA

kilo 4 Kilo Sinstars, FBA

When asked why he chose the name Kilo he answered – “To be honest with you the main reason was because I liked the letters and the flow. A lot of people don’t like the I L O but I always liked playing around with them and it also leads into loads of other different names, you can change it, change the spelling or add to it.”

kilo 7 Kilo Sinstars, FBA

kilo 5 Kilo Sinstars, FBA

The most memorable moments he has since he’s been writing are things such as painting in New York for the first time and also being able to drop a piece at Hunts Point on TATS Cru guest spot.

His biggest achievement, so far, is getting put into F.B.A (Fast Breaking Arts), which came about completely by surprise. He got a surprise message one day from two of the crew (Spade and Alive5 … RIP) who had been watching his stuff for a couple of years and said that they were thinking of opening up the crew, which is a huge thing considering there’s certain things in the New York scene that just don’t happen. He was put into the crew along with Dime1 from North Wales and the rest is history.

kilo 8 Kilo Sinstars, FBA

kilo 6 Kilo Sinstars, FBA

Kilo loves being able to transform something from nothing and it’s been a massive part of his life and he certainly doesn’t see himself from not being involved in the graff game – even when the time comes that he’s physically not able to paint anymore he will still be involved in some way, shape or form.

The one thing he would love to get into is lecturing at art colleges and places where graffiti has become more accepted and has even been used in graphic design, he’d love to be able to get into these areas and share his experience and the history behind graffiti.

kilo 3 Kilo Sinstars, FBA

Kilo is also a respected teacher of graffiti, as well as a writer, and is known for running workshops around the country and some of his ex pupils are now running their own workshops as well.

If you wish to know anymore about him or you want him to paint or design something for you, or maybe run a workshop, then please contact him here:

The team at Cult Events HQ have been busy in the kitchen cooking up projects for August. In addition to curating the first London show for Mr Penfold on August 1st, they are creating their own edible art experience with a supper club in Camden, held on 2nd and 3rd August.

“An Evening with Mr Penfold” is a dining experience in which you are immersed into the mind of the artist. A curated space where he draws the guest into his abstract world, full of colours and shapes, the basis of what makes his conceptual street art.

Cult Events have designed a deconstructed menu of food and drinks to work in sync with the set design, taking the diner on an aesthetic journey which will challenge three main senses, taste, smell and vision.

An Evening with Mr. Penfold
2nd & 3rd August, 7.30PM – 10.30PM
£35 tickets, multi coursed meal + free cocktail
69 Camden High Street, London, NW1 7JL

London Artists Gold Peg and Malarky have been letting loose in Stoke-on-Trent.

In amongst the wastelands, backsies, and car boot communities, they’ve been conjuring up a chaotic selection of wild animals for their upcoming exhibition ‘Who Dares’. With an array of neons, smashed bricks, and combustible fuels the private view promises to be dangerous, and well worth the expedition!

Prints and original pieces will be available for sale.

aaron rose web Stolen Space VII Group Show

Stolen Space are celebrating 7 years of representing and putting on shows from some of the finest artists around with a new group show, VII.

Acting as the premier exhibition for their new home, the show will feature AndrewMcattee, C215, D*Face, Dave Kinsey, EINE, Maya Hayuk, Reka, Ronzo, Ryan Callanan, Usugrow, Word To Mother and many more.

“Whether or not you are of a superstitious persuasion, the number 7 carries with it a myriad of significant connotations. Since the beginning of time, this number has held a powerful place in theological, historical, scientific and cultural memory.

According to the Old Testament, the Earth was created in 7 days, in Hinduism there are 7 Chakras, in Christianity there are 7 deadly sins, in Islam there are 7 levels in heaven, and in Judiasm there are 7 blessings and 7 days of mourning. Furthermore, there are 7 days in a week, 7 colours in a rainbow, 7 seas, and 7 wonders of the world. A recurrent motif in art and literature, this number signifies Shakespeare’s 7 Ages of Man and the 7 notes in a traditional musical scale.

The associations go on and on, and the potential for creative investigation is almost endless. “

With tasty refreshments courtesy of Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen, the show opens tomorrow, Thursday 11th July 2013.

Free Rum from Ray and Nephew and live screenprinting on both tees and totes supplemented what was a great turnout and it just goes to show the long-standing admiration that a lot of people have for Terry and his hard work over the years.

image 13696703370031369670354 526x701 Phlegm book release, 1st June for £25

Phlegm, one of my favourite artists, is releasing a book on 1st June via his Big Cartel and if the cover is anything to go by, it’s going to be amazing!

Set for release at 1pm, the book will gather together the collection of pen and ink illustrations that he’s based on the walls he’s painted over the past few years. The covers are hand printed and embossed by the man himself and so there’s been a great process, with care and attention to get this book done ‘right’.

Based on the pictures of the sample pages below, we can’t wait to grab a copy of this to leaf through the 80 pages of excellent work inside. It looks incredible and a great testament to the love and attention that is seemingly put into all of Phlegm’s work.

“It’s a large edition so it shouldn’t sell out too fast. To make sure everyone gets one i’m going to have to limit the online sales to x2 per customer. Please expect long delays in getting these all sent out. I’m not Amazon and i don’t have a team of people working for me. I’ve had mix ups with postage this year so i’m sending all books out in strong card wraps and Royal Mail signed for.”

Comic printed and bound in sheffield by Evolution Print using vegetable based inks and a heavy weight 170gsm part recycled paper.

Collecting from shops.

People in Sheffield are best to pick up their copy from The Old Sweet Shop or Rare and Racy Bookshop. Both stocking from 1st June. There will also be some copies for sale at Gosh Comic Shop (1 Berwick St, London, W1F 0DR) and there will be further details on Phlegm’s blog as and when he has them.

Express your interest by emailing phlegmpress@gmail.com so he can get an idea of numbers.

VNA22 VHILS COVER Review: VNA 22   Vhils

The 22nd issue of Very Nearly Almost landed through my letterbox a couple of weeks back and so I’ve finally got round to taking a peep, and once again, it doesn’t disappoint.

Alexandre Farto aka Vhils is the cover star in this latest magazine, one who the team have been desperate to feature for some time now. Farto has a stunning technique to produce his street art – chiselling plaster off of walls to create lush, multi-layered images and portraits on walls across the world. This is an interview definitely worth checking out as it provides a great insight into the man’s work, technique and skill.

VNA 22 not only features the technical wizardry of Vhils but also the work of American 3D woodwork artist AJ Fosik who creates striking and unique pieces, as well as geometric madness from Moneyless. Interviews also feature from Tizer, Etam Cru, Blaine Fontana, Moneyless, Miss Led, Vexta, Cranio, Soker, Cryptik, Husk Mit Navn and Look.

VNA 22 is available with two alternative covers; one is exclusive to their web store and subscribers, while the other is available through their network of stockists. As ever, there’s not really another magazine touching the surface of where the VNA guys go, so make sure you pick up a copy of this ASAP.

You may have heard of Pinterest before (we’re sure many of you have and are probably using it in some form). Pinterest is a way of collecting the things you love by easily organising and displaying imagery that describes your interests, your tastes and anything else you might have decided to put together.

Pinterest got in touch recently and we’re happy to announce that they are launching in the UK today. You may be thinking “But it is already available, here in the UK?” but the team behind the pinning game have fine-tuned a few things to make sure that UK visitors get an experience that is geared around things that would be relevant to them.

Here at UKSA, we’re using Pinterest to collect together images of graffiti and street as obviously it’s a very visual topic, and so the site allows us to collect together some of our favourite things. In the near future we want to be able to allow the readers of this site to help contribute and archive their favourites too and so keep your eyes peeled for that very soon!

We’re fairly new to the ‘pinning’ game, as we’re trying to work out the best way of using the platform to share our content with their users and vice versa, but the aim is to continue and build up a good collection on there.

If you’re on Pinterest, and not yet following us, then you can follow us easily. Or if you’re brand new to Pinterest, sign up.

What can I say, if you like graffiti and “The Walking Dead” TV series then you should love this wall!?! The piece is entitled “Dead and Buried” and it was recently created by Kemef Inc, Gnasher and The Goat – I’ll think you’ll agree that it’s an amazing collaboration of some very talented artists and it’s certainly one of the best walls that I’ve seen for a while.

mef buried The Walking Dead

If you’re a fan of “The Walking Dead” then you should easily recognise the below character, from the popular TV series, which has been painted by the artist Gnasher. In the past Gnasher has been known to create amazing, photorealistic pieces of Tinie Tempah, Rhianna, Batman, Yoda, Jimi Hendrix and Christopher Walken (the latter had quite a lot press coverage recently because someone thought it’d be funny to paint a swastika on it – Gnasher simply went back and painted it out!)

We’re happy to bring you the news of the launch of a brand new watch brand, LEAD Watches.

LEAD stands for ‘Limited Edition Artist Designed’ and the name speaks for itself. It’s great to see a brand get involved with homegrown artists and for their launch, they’ve teamed up with four; Mr Penfold, Mila K, Rootz Artwork and Clumsy Kate.

Being a big fan of Mr Penfold’s work, the watch design caught my attention, the strong linear design elements form his playful characters and the bold colours suit the timepiece very well.

Koze, 45rpm and Richt got together on Sunday 24th March to paint three of the huge billboards on the corner of Old Street in London. The reason, to bring awareness that every day, three young men end their lives.

“TOM. DICK. HARRY. Every day three young men end their lives. Help stop male suicide.”

Suicide is something that every Tom Dick & Harry may well think about, regardless of how successful, talented or popular they are. This is a toxic legacy, which impacts all communities. CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) worked with Soulful Creative and JCDecaux to get this message across to passers-by on one of London’s busiest streets.

NELLY DUFF GAIA SHOWOFHANDS 526x551 Exhibition: Gaia ‘A Show of Hands’

Nelly Duff is proud to present the premier solo UK exhibition of one of the most profound social muralists of recent years, Gaia.

April 11th sees the opening preview of the exhibition, set at The Ravenscroft Public House, a one time social hub and now a forgotten relic of the failures of social housing. “Show of Hands” will be an exhibition of original drawings.

‘Each set of hands is a reminder that while there is a common humanity within all of us, that ultimately our differences and experiences in a supposedly global world can never be universally reconciled.’ – Gaia.

Gaia has previously exhibited at the Baltimore Museum of Art and collaborated with a number of respected Street Artists including Momo, Sweet Toof & Swoon. The artist’s work is sought after by a host of high profile collectors, and exhibited in public institutions across the globe.

Nekst had been painting graffiti with unmatched levels of dedication for what was nearing twenty years – leaving his home in Houston, Texas to spread his name US-wide and internationally. He kept the spirit of bombing alive in the almost forgotten rebellious, balls to the wall, illegal fashion that the culture was founded on and he will be truly missed.

“My work has always been about scale and visibility” he once stated in an interview. For each of his pieces, his choice of structure, colors, size and location was always meticulously planned, legible and in high traffic areas.

Horfee, a graffiti writer from Paris and member of the Topsafe London crew has a new solo exhibition which opened this week at 4 Wilke St. In the past 12 years he has travelled extensively, leaving his mark on wherever he has visited with his unique take on graffiti.

In Paris, his hometown, it’s where he has left his indelible mark, it’s apparently difficult to find a district that he hasn’t covered in his name. And now, as a recent graduate from art school, he has begun to interest the art world, taking the illustrative elements of his graffiti away from the walls to the canvases.

 Topsafe Presents: Horfee’s Imaginarium London Exhibition

There’s a book to accompany the show and this is priced at £20 + P&P for 96 pages of Horfee goodness. And, if you’re feeling flush, the Topsafe site is also selling a ‘Horfee Flashpack’ as seen below. Yours for £150 + P&P.

Todd James‘ latest solo show opened this week at Lazarides Rathbone Place gallery. There will be a recreation of ‘The Vandal’s Bedroom’, part of his contribution to Street at Art in The Streets at the LA MOCA in 2011.  Part object, part installation, this bedroom-turned-graffiti-battle-station gives glimpses of plans for an imaginary artistic takeover. Street was a collaboration between Todd James, Stephen Powers and Barry McGee.

Alongside this, there will be new works on canvas and paper from Mr James. “World Domination” runs until April 11th at the gallery, so head down to check it out.

‘Follow Your Art’ is a fairly new concept introduced by Anti-Slavery International consisting of multi-art events to raise awareness and funds for the charity, whilst at the same time supporting street artists and the notion of street art. The debut of ‘Follow Your Art – Street Art Against Slavery’ was last October at Village Underground in the lead up to Frieze Art Fair, and was a roaring success, where £30,000 was raised for Anti-Slavery International and the awareness spread amongst many.

Following on from this success in bringing Anti-Slavery International to the forefront of contemporary culture, they are in the process of planning another event that will take place on 3rd April 2013. Partnering with Village Underground and continued support from Moniker Projects, endorsements by Sotheby’s, as well as new found support from the famous gallery StolenSpace, we are set to create a similar, even more exciting event.

Street art remains a huge focus with pieces created or donated by a select few of London’s most influential street artists including Remi Rough, Vinnie Nylon, RYCA, Pure Evil, Dscreet, James Jessop, Benjamin Murphy and Jo Peel. As well as this exhibition, ‘Follow Your Art’ will see the premier of an edit from the short film ‘Dots’, an ongoing film project looking at the roots of graffiti and street art with a focus on the notoriously influential book Subway Art (1984), filmed and directed by street artist Dscreet.

Finally, music will be a main draw with the timeless DJ Grooverider headlining the night and bringing in the crowds.

When: Wednesday 3rd April 2013, 8pm – 1am
Where: Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, LONDON, EC2A 3PQ
Price: £10, tickets from Village Underground

Louis from Spraying Bricks got in touch about his project and he’s currently looking to fund the project through the crowdfunding site, Kickstarter:

“I’m looking for the help from the generous Kickstarter community to create further content for the online documentary series Spraying Bricks. I have worked in Alternative Outdoor Media for some time, recreating old, and generating new campaigns with the help of street artists. The dream was to change the advertising landscape and simultaneously create a public gallery of artist’s works, endorsed by the brand in question.

As time has gone by this dream seems further and further away with increasing brand guidelines causing restriction in creativity and undermining the ability of the artist and the value of their work. “

 Banksy arrested? Or a hoax?

We’re hearing reports that Banksy has been arrested, is this true, is it really him, or is this a hoax? The Reddit thread seems to be calling hoax. Some of the details are rather sketchy…

It seems it’s possible for anyone to upload a ‘press release’ to PR Log, and so this could be one massive troll..a successful one at that, as the internet is buzzing.

From PR Log (which is now down):

The England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter that for years has gone by the pseudonymous name of Banksy, was arrested yesterday by police in London. After hours of questioning and a raid of his London art studio, his true name and identity have finally been revealed.

London Police say Banksy’s real name is Paul William Horner, a 39-year old male born in Bristol, England. The BBC has also confirmed this information with his PR agent Jo Brooks and the website that acts as a handling service on behalf of the artist, Pest Control.

London Police Chief Wayne Leppard held a press conference to answer questions about how Banksy was finally apprehended. “We had a 24-hour Anti-Graffiti Task Force monitoring different groups known to have associated with Banksy. We received word that around 2am a group of individuals left a flat speculated to be one of Banky’s art studios. This group was followed by agents and once vandalism had occurred, we then arrested the group, 5 men total. These individuals all had ID on them except for one, and that is the one we believed to be Banksy,” Leppard said. “We then raided the studio where this group was last seen leaving from. Inside we found thousands of dollars of counterfeit money along with future projects of vandalism. We also found a passport and ID of a Paul William Horner who matched the description of the man that we are currently holding.” Leppard continued, “Horner is currently being held without bail on charges of vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting. We are also holding the other four individuals whose names we are not releasing at this time.”

After today’s arrest it is unclear who else will be sought in connection with Banksy’s arrest. CNN spoke with Kyle Brock who is a project manager for Banksy says he is now worried that charges could be brought against him also. “If they spent this many man-hours and brought this many charges against Banksy, I can’t imagine that he’ll be the only one to go down in all of this,” Brock said. “All the beauty Paul Horner brought to this world, and the London Police can only see it as vandalism. It’s such a shame.”

The graffiti artist that goes by the name Space Invader told reporters he does not agree with the arrest or outing of Banksy’s identity. “He’s just doing art. That’s what he was doing and that’s what he’ll continue to do,” Invader said. “For the London Police to setup some 24-hour task force just to catch Banksy is ridiculous. I hope we hear plenty of noise from the good tax-paying citizens of London about this.”

Banksy’s identity was long speculated to be Robin Gunningham, a man born in Bristol, England in 1973. Known for his contempt for the government in labeling graffiti as vandalism, Banksy displays his art on public walls and even going as far as to build physical prop pieces. He does not sell his work directly; however, art auctioneers have been known to attempt to sell his street art on location and leave the problem of its removal in the hands of the winning bidder.

London Police are not releasing any pictures of Horner or any further information at this time.

 Slinkachu creates original pieces for O2 and War Child

O2 has commission UKSA favourite Slinkachu to create three original artworks in support of the 20 Years of War Child exhibition at the British Music Experience at The O2 in London.

Slinkachu, well known for his signature style of using models of people interacting with their real-world environment, has created these bespoke urban installations to raise awareness of its 20th anniversary. All of the pieces were created in playgrounds around London, juxtapose children in war-torn scenarios, highlighting the injustice of children affected by war.

Slinkachu, commented on the new pieces:

“I was more than happy when O2 approached me to create some pieces for the War Child 20 year exhibition. I’ve been keen to do something dealing with the impact that war has on the often voiceless victims of conflict – children. My work features the unheard, the unseen, forgotten and the often ignored people in today’s world so this project was an obvious collaboration to get involved with.”

Mark Stevenson, Head of Priority and Sponsorship, O2 says: “Our work with War Child helps to get their message out to a wider audience. The aim of the partnership with Slinkachu is to drive talkability and buzz around the exhibition at the BME. Slinkachu’s iconic, signature art perfectly embodies War Child’s message that children should not be forgotten.”

War Child UK has changed and saved the lives of over 800,000 children in the world’s most war-torn countries, children who would otherwise have been forgotten. From Bosnia, Chechnya and Rwanda to Afghanistan, Iraq and the Democratic Republic of Congo, War Child have given children the security, care, education and skills they need to build a better future for themselves.

An exhibition featuring art from Toxic the only surviving member of a powerful and hugely influential group, whose story is told using the narrative of exclusive film, music, art and mixed media from and featuring all three members of The Hollywood Africans. Also includes film by Salomon Emquies and photographic images by Christopher Makos. Music and performance footage from and by the NY collective Gray.

It is safe to assume that most people who have some inkling of the art world have heard of Jean Michel Basquiat – The talented young black hip 80’s ‘street’ artist, fawned upon by Warhol, shown by Larry Gagosian and BrunoBischofberger and others of note and who tragically dies of a drug overdose, aged 27. The market value of his work now runs into the many millions.

One fact that is somewhat overlooked is that Basquiat didn’t work in isolation, he was very much part of the Downtown scene, he formed long lasting friendships and relationships and became part of collaborative groups, be they musical or art collectives. He was in a band called Gray and was a regular at ‘new’ hot spots such as theMudd Club, Club 57, CBGB’s, Hurrah and Tier 3. He was in the happening crowd of filmmakers, artists and musicians, such as David Byrne, Blondie and Madonna. Whilst enjoying the ‘buzz’ of the scene, Basquiat never loses touch with the flowering musical and cultural movement happening in Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn. The nascent Hip Hop and Rap genre brought him in close contact with the key DJs, producers and Graffiti artists of the day. Two central figures were the rap musicians, artists and producers Rammellzee and Toxic.

The trio became good friends and in 1982 the three of them travelled to Los Angeles, where they were struck by how backward the film industry was in regard to portrayals of African Americans especially during the 40’s and 50’s. The only roles seemingly available were racial stereotypes and ‘Uncle Toms’. This led the trio to call themselves ‘The Hollywood Africans’ as social and political comment on that period. Whilst in LA, Basquiat paints and titles, ‘Hollywood Africans’ along with several other related works, which is now in the Whitney Museum of art. This is a seminal piece as it includes a portrait of the trio as well as text and images alluding to these limited parts, such as gangsters (GANGSTERISM) and plantation workers (SUGAR CANE, TOBACCO).

The group remained tight knit in New York and work together to produce a rap record along with A-One and Al Diaz. Toxic continues to be Basquiat’s close friend and travelling companion as well as collaborator and in the following year they travel to Jamaica with Nick Taylor.

Toxic and Rammellzee’s work stems initially from the spray can, an aesthetic which was now beginning to be seen as a distinct ‘street’ art movement. The bright and bold lettering that appeared on the side of subway trains were moving canvases, allowing a new wave of graffiti artists to have their work seen throughout the Boroughs of New York. Toxic and Rammellzee were directly influenced by this new typography yet were never considered as graffiti artists. They carved out their own niche and were crucial in bringing original art and music from the Bronx and Queens to a mostly white audience in the downtown scene. The galleries were finally waking up to this raw and authentic art form

These artists are now what we call ‘Old School’. They pushed the boundaries of what was considered as art as they created artworks that were fresh and new, far removed from the realm of elitist galleries. They were outsiders and produced work that was as Toxic states, ‘on their own terms’. They formed their own distinctive style and were more interested in respect from their peers and contemporaries, rather than what the so-called art world could offer them.

The ‘Hollywood Africans’ group was in part a response to general prejudice and snobbery. The work created was free of any of the great European art traditions. Toxic and Rammellzee made bold abstracted work, vibrantly colourful and dynamic in movement. They had no need for a representational art, when their reality was so harsh. They made work that flowed directly from imagination through to the immediacy of the can. Rammellzee experimented with materials and built up surfaces using epoxy resin. Toxic stayed true to the spraying technique and worked on canvases pinned to the wall.

This exhibition puts all three friends and artists together into a historical context with previously unseen film footage and photographs of the trio. The title Last of the Hollywood Africans refers directly to Toxic, who is the last surviving member of the group. Just before Basquiat’s untimely death Toxic moved to Italy, Jean would phone him constantly to check up with his old friend making sure he was OK and learning Italian. Toxic also travelled around Europe, taking his art and music with him. He has since returned to New York along with periods living in Paris, where he continues to create innovative work.

Basquiat may be the most famous and posthumously the most successful, but if it wasn’t for Rammellzee and Toxic then our concept of ‘urban’ art today may be very different indeed. They were the pioneers and this show aims to reflect their significance, not just as artists but also as musicians and cultural tastemakers. As Toxic states, ‘B- Boy rule number one – Be original’.

The Private View on Friday 15th February will include an after-show event at The Scotch Mayfair featuring the acclaimed DJ Lord Jazz from the New York Hip-Hop trio Lords of the Underground. RSVP for this event is essential, please see information below for further details.

 Review: Paper Wallet  Review: Paper Wallet

For those of you are not familiar with Paper Wallet, we thought it was about time we popped up a short review as they released Series 4 at the end of 2012. Paper Wallet is made up by a bunch of artists and creative entrepreneurs and 2007 they set out to create thin, expandable, durable and eco-friendly wallets.

Sourcing designs from artists all over the world, they wanted to bring life to one of the most basic accessories. Collaborating with artists from over 15 countries, they are now on set to release Series 5, and don’t plan on stopping now.

 Review: Paper Wallet

With more and more products about to drop, they aim to continue on the same path – To come out with new designs, connecting with more artists.

Screen Shot 2013 02 03 at 20.44.10 526x351 Review: Paper Wallet

We received one of the SLip wallets for review and we can confirm that the build quality is far superior than we thought. Covered in a space-style artwork, featuring a tiger in a spacesuit on the outer cover and a spaceman on the inside, the wallet has 2 credit card slots, 2 business card flaps, 2 side pockets and a cash compartment – surprising for something made from paper!

Priced at $19.95 (about £12 for those of you in the UK), it’s a cheap alternative and looks great – we can highly recommend these wallets and look forward to seeing what they have in store for Series 5.

Check out the full range over on the site.

 Book review: Monokrome Two

Launched at the tail-end of 2012, Monokrome Two is the second in the series of graffiti books from Monokrome Publishing. We’ve been a little slack with updates to the site recently, so I thought it was about time I put up the review I’ve been meaning to make for a few weeks now.

Leafing through the review copy we received, it’s evident that a hell of a lot of time and effort has gone into the planning and production for this index of artworks from 33 of the top artists on the ‘scene’ today.

304 pages rich, it’s packed full of works from some of the most exciting names in graffiti. Featuring interviews with all of the artists, you can find out more about what drives their creative ambitions and the journey they took to get to where they are today.

 Book review: Monokrome Two
