Banksy in Gaza: Vacation Promo

This new video from Banksy takes you on a grim tour of Gaza that is laced with sarcasm bordering on total cynicism. Released on his website Wednesday with a few photos from his trip, Banksy appears to have stenciled the last standing door in the ruins of a building. The anonymous UK Street Artist uses his art and satirical way with the language to make his point. “Gaza is often described as ‘the world’s largest open air prison’ because no-one is allowed to enter or leave. But that seems a bit unfair to prisons – they don’t have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost every day,” he says on his page. His video says he climbed through tunnels to get there but maybe Banksy was in Tony Blair’s suitcase – the UN website says the former Prime Minister of the UK was there mid-month. “Gaza is a metaphor for all that is wrong,” wrote Mr. Tony Blair in an article after visiting Gaza on 14 February.

SOFLES Projection Mapping of His Mural in Melbourne

Selina Miles again directs and produces a film of Sofles at work that transcends the experience and gives you a sense of awe at his work, which truthfully is already often awesome. We’ve been a fan of and producer of events with projection mapping so we are glad to see a talented street artist use the technology in an effective way. The video begins innocently enough with some inking out an illustration on a canvas, then buffing of a wall in Melbourne. Later the sun goes down, and BAM!

London based street and graffiti artist Ben Eine knocked out a wall inside the Middlebury College Museum of Art as part of the upcoming exhibition OUTSIDE IN: ART OF THE STREET.

“Big City Life Rome” Exclusive Shots of All the Walls

Posted on February 26, 2015

The first thing you’ll notice is that all the walls are the same size. For “Big City Life Rome” all of the artists were given equally large walls for their murals, which is good because you avoid fights that way. We have seen a few festivals where there are heated discussions about which artists have what walls, how large or small they are, and where they are located. This sort of uniformity is rather unique in that way.

The second thing you may notice is that there are only men here. Even the children in photos on the website are male. There may be a couple of females on the Street Art scene here, but this is a male dominated game in Rome.

“Big City Life Rome” brings some of the names you are familiar with, and undoubtedly one or two of your favorites are represented here. Given the similar generous scale of the walls the artists have it is easier to make comparisons between the geometric minimalism of Moneyless, the calligraphic pulsating patterning of Domenico Romeo, and the metaphoric wrestling musclemen of Jaz. Each of these artists has a distinct voice and seeing them revealed over a the period of 7 week festival provides  you ample opportunity to appreciate them individually and as a group.

Our very special thanks to Stefano S. Antonelli, who curated this show for the 999 Contemporary Gallery, for sharing these exclusive images with BSA readers.

BSA GIVEAWAY — Stikman 2015 Calendar !

Posted on February 25, 2015

You have seen the little character on walls, lampposts, the pavement, window sills, behind bars, peeling off windows, peeking through back alleys, climbing bridges and on gallery walls.

Wouldn’t you like to see him hanging from a picture hook on your kitchen?

Now is your opportunity!

It’s a BSA GIVEAWAY of the 2015 Stikman Calendar!

Yes, it’s nearly March and only 10 months of the calendar will be useful but frankly, you are reading this on a cellphone that does everything but make pancakes for you, so most likely you won’t be laboriously planning your life writing notes on it to remember cousin Fred’s birthday or when to pay the milk man.

You’ll just be pleased to have your very own Stikman art to display proudly in your spacious home, even if our awkward little friend is being held in a bird cage and taunted by a raving beauty.

Here’s how you win. Be one of the 10 people who Instagram us a photo of a Stikman piece by tagging it @BKStreetArt #Stikman2015 by Friday 2/27 at 6 pm EST. You can even Regram if you like, but give credit to the photographer.

We’ll pick 10 of the best pics and our decision is final, so no hot tears on your cheeks if you don’t win. You know we love you just the same.

Start tagging! Good Luck!
