In the Magazine: David M. Cook

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 22, 2014
I can remember the exact moment I came across David M. Cook's work nearly a decade ago, and the same instant admiration that I felt then still resonates today. I could sense his focus, drive, and genuine aesthetic, and I knew it was imbedded within him—it was him. Obviously, his intention had nothing to do with appealing to my taste, but it worked. David just draws, that's what he does, and he does it well. And most importantly, it both satisfies and challenges him.

ARYZ for Vilnius Street Art Festival‏‎, Lithuania

Street Art // Friday, September 19, 2014
We just got some shots from our friend Henrik Haven of ARYZ (January 2013 cover artist) working on a mural for the Vilnius Street Art Festival‏‎ in Lithuania. From the festival, "Aryz has incorporated Lithuanian words “Kaip Ne Žmogus”, meaning, 'not like human' into his mural. The phrase was written by the local graffiti artist on the wall before it was buffed by the council few years ago. Beautiful reference completing the concept of the mural as well as earning him a wide respect in Vilnius graffiti scene."
