Street Art // Thursday, October 24, 2013
We were just wondering where Escif has been and why we had not seen any new work from him popping up. His website was updated yesterday with some thoughts that we found interesting and felt inclined to share them here with you. "After a few months meditation, we start again with some changes in blog, structure and mind. Time goes fast and everything´s changing all around. Street is a nice place to play, but we are not totally agree on how the game´s coming, so lets try to push it with different rules."

Bansky: "Today's Art has been cancelled due to police activity"

Street Art // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
One thing is for certain; the mentioning of Bansky’s name provokes strong opinions. Ever since the British artist has set up his New York residency “Better Out Than In,” we have seen both the haters and the praisers come out in hoards. Undeniably, the infamous artist is really, really good at getting major media attention and creating hype. So, when we saw his day #23 update that read “Today’s art has been cancelled due to police activity” it appeared to us as another piece in creating additional controversy, which in the end leads to more discussion, attention, and hype. Plus even Banksy need a day off, right?
