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.”

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.

C215 creates large Cat Portrait in Paris

Street Art // Thursday, April 18, 2013
There is no question after seeing this giant cat portrait painted by Parisian street artist, C215, that he is a die-hard feline fan. Often working in small scale using stencils, the artist switched his medium up using a hundred cans of spray paint and 40 liters of acrylic to create this mural at a busy intersection in Paris. Even though the size of the piece is considerably larger, C215 kept to the same stencil esthetic. This may be the largest cat we have seen, but maybe a bigger one exists somewhere? Any Clues? We want to see!
