JR at TED2011 Talks

Street Art // Tuesday, March 15, 2011
We all know that French street artist, JR, won the 2011 TED Award, but we hadn't heard his TED2011 Talk accepting and pledging with the award. JR's simple, ambitious TED Prize wish: to use art to turn the world inside out. A great speech after the jump . . .

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 . . .

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 . . .

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 . . .

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.
