Essu

Street Art // Thursday, June 16, 2011
On my first visit to Tokyo, Essu’s stickers stood out immediately and blanketed the city.  The Twist influence is apparent, but there is something about the monochrome esthetic that is highly appealing.  I’m unsure whether Essu shows in galleries or just sticks to the street, nevertheless it’s always a treat to stumble on this artists work.

Shepard Fairey on Blast

Street Art // Wednesday, June 15, 2011
It’s difficult being in the spotlight, everyone’s seems to be waiting for you to slip up or act inappropriately.  It’s ok; it lets everyone know we are still human.  This video is awkward; Shepard is most likely in the doghouse after talking to his wife that way on national television, any husband would be.
