Banksy "Better Out Than In" Day 12—21 Recap

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
Since the last time we posted about Banksy's month long street residency in NYC, Better Out Than In, we have witnessed a few pieces going up in NYC (or at least part of the masses going to see the pieces) and see the backlash of a certain Mayor Bloomberg making his comments about "urban decay." Banksy has given us a confessional, Ronald McDonald's wage reenactment, a Central Park painting sale, a pop-up outdoor show with Os Gemeos under the High Line, and of course, trying to staying Ghetto 4 Life.

Black and white, low light, super 8, grainy and a good way to start your Sunday.  This classic super 8 footage of AOK members Reas, Ven and Mesh, painting the New York subway in the late ‘80s is a rare find.

Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada recently revealed this 11-acre portrait of an anonymous girl made by plotting a grid with Topcon GPS technology and then placing 30,000 stakes in Belfast's Titanic Qurter.

Geoffrey Farmer's Sculptural Collages

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
Canadian artist Geoffrey Farmer's sculpture collage 'Leaves of Grass' takes cultural icons and images from five decades (1935-1985) and 900 issues of LIFE Magazine. It spans 124 feet. "It wasn’t until we had finished making the work that I realized the piece is very much about factory life. Factory farming, the war factory, the death factory, the automobile factory, the Hollywood factory, the personality factory…. History emerging out of a factory. In the end, it takes on the appearance of a conveyor belt."

We're having some fun and flashbacks to our childhood today with this collection of TMNT characters by artist David Rapoza that not only includes Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael, but also Master Splinter, Shredder, and April O'Neil among others. I think we're in the mood for some pizza now...

Palladini's Ambiguous Eroticism

Erotica // Sunday, October 20, 2013
Much of Jeffrey Palladini's work brandishes a sort of ambiguous eroticism ‘ a vaguely (and sometimes not-so-vaguely) sexual tension that shows through even the most neutral imagery. The multiple figures which populate many of my recent works share narratives that are compelling but not quite overt, encouraging the viewer to project their own stories and points of view into their interpretations. Palladini is a San Francisco based creative.
