"Bring Back The Boardwalks" Silent Art Auction & Fundraiser

Street Art // Thursday, November 15, 2012
Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath left many cities and towns on the Eastern Seaboard inoperable or completely destroyed, many having to rebuild on their own without any government assistance. The beach communities of the Far Rockaway and Coney Island in Queens were greatly affected. A group of New Yorkers came together to help their recovery process by setting up a silent auction and fundraiser with 100% of the proceeds going to the communities.

Juxtapoz Presents: Duke Riley

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 27, 2012
Before I’d ever met Duke, I asked my friend Danilo what he was like. “He’s sort of an action hero guy.” I asked Danilo what he meant by this. “I mean, if the world was coming to an end, I’d kinda want to be hanging out with Duke ‘cause he could probably get us out of it.”...

I ART JOBURG: PART 2

Street Art // Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Often when traveling to unknown lands, in this case Johannesburg, one can create certain expectations in their head and discover the exact opposite. After a few days running around, are initial skepticism of Joburg has been revoked and anything but negative. Aside from countless memorable adventures from our hospitable hosts and curators of the event, /ANDPEOPLE, we have witnessed two massive murals by ESPO and ROA come to completion.

Phlegm @ Bloop Festival

Street Art // Thursday, August 09, 2012
UK-based muralist, Phlegm, recently completed this 4 story high mural in Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza for The Bloop Festival.  The walls show two mechanical arms operating each other by the pull of a string with the artist’s signature characters doing a little maintenance.  Hopefully the artist was able to take a dip in that pool next door after baking in the sun painting this piece.

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.”

Roid "More Than Ever" Exhibition Photos

Graffiti // Monday, June 11, 2012
We are deeply disappointed that we are unable to see Roid’s debut solo exhibition “More than Ever” with Topsafe London in person.  The artist’s work is a mix and is influenced by typography, design, geometry, Manga, computers, robots, music and the list goes on, with one eye catching color palette for sure.  His work has been courting our attention for a while and from these pictures one could easy think the canvases were created digitally.
