Katharina Grosse at Mass MOCA

Street Art // Tuesday, March 15, 2011
We love a good site-specific work, and Katharina Grosse's work at Mass MOCA at the moment, One Floor Up More Highly, is a creepy, psychedelic lunar landscape of rainbow colors and mixed-media objects. The four mounds of soil, painted with a spray gun instead of a brush, is the highlight. More looks after the jump . . .

Swoon in Melbourne Video

Street Art // Monday, March 07, 2011
As we wrote last month, Swoon is showing in Melbourne, Australia at Metro Gallery, and the Australian press has been more than happy to embrace the Brooklyn-based artist. We found this video that ABC Arts in Australia shot of the artist, not bad for what appears to be major coverage of Swoon's show. Video after the jump . . .

The Oregon Trail as Street Art Sign

Street Art // Tuesday, March 01, 2011
We don't know about you, but when you were in 3rd grade, and you had your once-a-week computer class, if Oregon Trail was the game you were going to play, you were excited. Not only did you get major Western USA History lessons in the process, but you learned all sort of great things, like dysentery and how many ox it takes to pull a wagon. More after the jump . . .

Exclusive Community Video: "Banksy" Speaks On Oscar Snub

Street Art // Monday, February 28, 2011
A little birdie in the Juxtapoz community got creative with "Banksy" today and was able to "interview" the elusive artist about his Academy Award snub at the hands of "Inside Job." Yeah, let's keep it at that. Charlie Sheen has nothing on this. Exclusive video after the jump . . .

Blu x Ericailcane in Bologna, Italy

Street Art // Monday, February 28, 2011
We haven't seen much public work from Italian aritsts Blu or Ericailcane since both were in California in the early Fall 2010. Ericailcane was in San Francisco for a solo exhibition at FIFTY24SF, and Blu was in Los Angeles where that thing with the mural for MOCA happened. You may have heard the story.

JR in Silverlake and Venice

Street Art // Sunday, February 27, 2011
By the time you see this, JR will have done more walls in Los Angeles, but this will get you to seek those out. As he continues to perform his "Wrinkles of the City" project throughout LA, the TED Award-winner is creating a bit of a buzz in the SoCal art's community. More after the jump . . .

Banksy Again on "The Simpsons"

Street Art // Tuesday, February 22, 2011
We haven't watched an episode of "The Simpsons" in probably four years, because let's face it, it has become just a tad too zany over the past decade. But we did catch both Banksy appearances on the seminal FOX program, including the one this past weekend where Marge, Homer, and the fam go to the Academy Awards. More after the jump . . .

Two New JR Walls in Downtown Los Angeles

Street Art // Monday, February 21, 2011
We ponder: Does anyone think that Lebron James took time out of his busy All-Star Weekend activities to watch JR put up some massive mural pieces? Both JR and LBJ were in downtown Los Angeles working on their respective projects, so the thought may have crossed the NBA guy's mind. We digress. Time to get serious. Pictures of JR's murals after the jump . . .
