Easy Does it...

Graffiti // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
If you were to walk the streets of Manhattan or Brooklyn today, as in right now, it wouldn’t take long until you spotted an Easy tag in the same signature over and over again. Just look for a Sen4 or tag and it shouldn’t be to far from there.

Kenny Scharf arrested, googled, and asked for autograph

Street Art // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Our May cover artist, Kenny Scharf, was apparently arrested for what over the last 30 years he has become well-known for, spray painting. Apparently the artist was arrested in Bushwick, Brooklyn while painting one of his signature snakes and apparently as Art Sucks reports, while in custody cops were googling him and requesting autographs. "Cops who arrested me were fans and wanted to talk about exit through the gift shop and even liked the tag. At the first holding cell in Williamsburg (there were only 5 people in the cell) the police were googling me and asking about things like the tunnel nightclub." He continued on in saying “I was in there 30 years ago and im sorry to say its much worse now. Kind of like hell.”

Paintings by Ian Davis

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
We are really enjoying New York-based artist Ian Davis' paintings this morning. Reminding us of some sort of totalitarian, communist propaganda, Davis' work focuses on "maleness, whose omnipresence, ineffectiveness and herd instinct he conjures up in small identical figures..."

VFR, VEEFER, or VFRESH is a recognizable and legendary name amongst graffiti circles in New York and beyond. Painting in abundance in the early 90’s and on, VFR has gained a certain type of underground praise that many writers aspire for. Laying low for some time, he has resurfaced to offer 100 canvases each priced at a highly affordable $100. aNYthing store will be hosting this special exhibition entitled “Pieces of History from the Future” and will also offer a limited run of 100 t-shirts from VFR. Highly recommended. Go!
