HUGE Inside and Out: “Magic City” Says Goodbye to Stockholm

Posted on February 24, 2018

Magic City has a HUGE plan this weekend, the last great hurrah in Stockholm before it packs up and moves to the next city. Along with special programming and guests and late nights at the museum, Daniel Fahlström aka “Huge”, created a new signature helium balloon wall inside the space to mark the events.

A graffiti writer since age ten who grew up from north of the city, HUGE painted inside the exhibition as we all say goodbye to this wide-ranging educational, entertaining, and insightful take on a vast global graffiti and Street Art scene that continues to grow and change.

Luckily for us, BSA received some great tips about where to check out the local scene and even a tour yesterday with Street Artist Vegan Flava through some of the cuttier slices of the Stockholm margins – complete with mean barking junkyard dogs and really friendly scrap metal recyclers – AND we caught this HUGE piece in the wild, so to speak.

With both of these piece to post, it’s a perfect circuit of indoor/outdoor art practice to end this Magic City note on.

BSA Special Feature: Felipe Pantone Does Visuals for DJ SOAK “Run Away”

We used to call this feature FUN FRIDAY before we became more serious with BSA Film Friday but today it’s definitely back to fun when Street Artist Felipe Pantone does his Op Art magic for the video debut here by DJ SOAK. Behind the turntables for over half his life, this child prodigy of the scratch has shared stages with artists like Diplo, Justice, Skrillrex, 2Many Djs, A-Trak and Moby, but today is the release of his first EP “Run Away” accompanied by Anderson. Paak.

The video visuals are on point and dopily eye popping thanks to the direction and graphic design of Street Artist Felipe Pantone along with Nachei Sanchez – who also knocks out the 3d modeling and animation. The press release says it feels like a gove to Soak’s sound – and you’ll likely agree.

Get up and dance peeps! It’s the weekend!

Slinkachu Miniaturizes the Scale in Stockholm at “Magic City”

Posted on February 22, 2018

Every world is a microcosm of another. Yes, we know that is very deep.

Here we are in Stockholm, Sweden peering in at the microcosm of the street art/graffiti/urban art scene that is Magic City and we realize that this huge warehouse out by the docks delivers one refinement of the global scene, followed by another and another.

Walking through this Nordic expression of an wide ranging traveling exhibition, one realizes that it has matured and strengthened since its first iteration in Dresden and later Munich. More about this later, as we will be in town a couple of days for our BSA Film Weekend and we are sure to be touring the wrong side of town shortly with local vandals and/or artists.

But the small world we struck by this afternoon was the exhibited pieces by a master of “Miniaturesque” since 2006, the creator and photographer Slinkachu. Since his earliest days as a street installation artist his work has made him a phenomenon for focusing on hidden, dare we say magic, worlds inside the larger one that most of us inhabit.

Exhibited in galleries and museums around the world and appearing in books and online and social sites, these images give you an idea of the carefully choreographed petite whimsy that he has become known for.

Kazzius “In Search of the Movement” : High Speed Geometry in Spain

Posted on February 21, 2018

Graffuturism in Barcelona today as KAZZIUS speaks geometry and abstraction on a wall for Contorno Urbano. Rapid fire planes of aqua, marine, and yellow all shoot along an invisible line, pile, collide, sub divide, reform, and continue forward in a split second. He calls this “In Search of the Movement”, but it looks like the dude found it.

Writing graff since ’93 his interest in architecture eventually formed this fine-artist’s vector-sharp vocabulary, breaking apart letters and forms and elevating the simplest geometric shapes to center stage. Movement, depth, and the spaces in between all interplay in KAZZIUS’ balanced compositions, an insight into the jolt of energy and spontaneous practice that drives this painter.
