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.”

London-based artist, Shok, skillfully uses spray paint to create work that resembles x-ray negatives with a twist of abstraction and some added color. With his newest piece the artist created a rainbow color way consisting of bones, a clock, a fingerprint, and what we think looks like cosmic dust.

Photos from “The Future is Blight @ LeBasse Projects

Street Art // Friday, April 19, 2013
Last weekend saw the opening of TrustoCorp’s new solo exhibition “The Future is Blight” at LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles. The guerilla art group who are known for a range of polished, occasionally humorous public installations and meticulously fabricated billboards, took on a minimal, more subtle approach displaying work created in a variety of mediums such as sculptures, paintings, work on paper, and prints. Los Angeles’s dichotomy of poverty and wealth was a main focal point of the exhibition and the artists spoke on view towards Los Angeles saying, “Underneath the glossy veneer of tabloid magazines and Hollywood movies, the former middle class is struggling, families are facing poverty and America is slowly becoming a third world country. In the absence of any real help or solid solutions, there is hypocrisy, greed and hopelessness. Through our work, we hope to call attention to this reality, crack a few smiles and hopefully make some people think along the way.”

Video: STREET ART FOR SALE

Street Art // Friday, April 19, 2013
We find it strange that in cities like London people are offering “Street art tours,” where guides steer you in the direction of all the best pieces by well-known artists. There is a large audience that has been built from the surge of work in the streets and just as much attention from art dealers and buyers hoping to make the right investment. Interesting perspective in this video depending on your point of view of street art.
