3 New Pref pieces

Graffiti // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Pref’s approach to piecing involves combining, overlapping, and blending letters to spell out a variety of phrases. These four new pieces contain the phrases “IT'S JUST NOT COOL TO BE AN IDIOT,” “GOT TO BE MAD,” “ONE ON TOP OF THE OTHER,” and “LOST FOR WORDS.”

NrEnron

Graffiti // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
If ramen noodles could ever be manipulated into graffiti lettering, we believe this Enron piece would be similar to what it would look like.  Good look right here.

Amusing

Graffiti // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Another creative new piece from Amuse painted for the eyes of residents residing in the windy city.

Peter Griffin & Sever

Graffiti // Sunday, July 15, 2012
Painted back in 2008, but definitely worth another look. Family Guy’s Peter Griffin gives Sever a little help with his background bubbles.

The Paintings of Pablo Cristi

Graffiti // Saturday, July 14, 2012
Los Angeles born, Oakland-based artist, Pablo Cristi, creates vibrant paintings and sculptures relating to pop culture, graffiti, religion, history, gangs, and “Bling culture,” are favorite topic of all. As his website states, “ Cristi’s work is motivated by an active political awareness and is steeped in a critical inquiry of power, representation and history.” “ His investigations of the colonial past, present, and future often take the form of paintings and sculptural objects that deconstruct and commingle urban visual vernaculars.”

MQ barge in transit

Graffiti // Friday, July 13, 2012
It’s on the move! A rare recent capture of the massive, rust-ridden MQ barge in San Francisco being moved by a tugboat to a new destination. It appears time and weather has had its way, eating away at the paint, making the letters less distinct.

Abnormal

Graffiti // Friday, July 13, 2012
Abno shining out of a dark cloud with three random bricks by his side.

Horfe

Graffiti // Friday, July 13, 2012
When thinking of Paris graffiti we could also say that the name Horfe pops in to mind first, although there are so many talented writers painting there. This piece like many others of Horfe’s borderlines graffiti and surreal/machinery/abstract/futuristic landscape.

Askew

Graffiti // Friday, July 13, 2012
When you think of New Zealand graffiti one name always come to mind instantly.  Don’t act like that’s not the case.
