Iconic Movie Posters with Their Icons Taken Out

Design // Monday, April 20, 2015
It's amazing how much we know about popular culture, especially as it took us very little time to identify what these movie posters were. French artist Madani Bendjellal has created this fun series where he has taken icons out of some of the most iconic movie posters of all-time, which still makes them super identifiable.

Ron English on the Bowery Wall!

Street Art // Monday, April 20, 2015
Finally, and most deservedly, Ron English has painted a mural on the famed Bowery and Houston wall, and its a good one. You know the history of the wall by now; Keith Haring, Os Gemeos, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, and Barry McGee are just a few of the names who have painted the wall, and Ron has added his touch with a Baby Hulk and an American Flag of corporate parodies. Great work Ron!
