Saber #DefendTheArts Video

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 21, 2012
As we wrote on the site already, Saber is returning to the skies and his skywriting project, this time in response to Mitt Romney, who stated that he would eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected. After receiving donations, Saber is set to take to the skies above an American city on September 22 or 23, much like he did in LA in response to a mural moratorium. We got involved then, and we are involved now. 

Aryz @ Fundacja Urban Forms Festival

Street Art // Friday, September 21, 2012
After collaborating on a wall with Os Gemeos, Aryz stuck around in Lodz, Poland for the Fundacja Urban Forms Festival and painted another wall.

He will open a new series of works, Kind Regrets, at HVW8 Gallery, featuring acrylic on canvas works and pen on paper.

The Art of Johnny Ryan

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 21, 2012
I'm pretty sure the words "Johnny Ryan" mean "Fuck You" in Elvish or Klingon. That being said, a lot of people nowadays are scared to say "Johnny Ryan" to anyone, even half-assed quasi-celebrities that probably could use a good "Johnny Ryan",  because they're afraid of losing followers, or offending someone, or not being accused of "hatin on shit".

In just a few years, Gehard Demetz has risen to international prominence by applying incredible craftsmanship as a traditional woodcarver to subjects that are new and appealing to contemporary viewers. His sculptures of children are at the same time attractive and disquieting, rendered with a perfection that is by no means rhetorical or classical.
