BSA Special Feature: D*Face “AGAINST THE WALL” and Street Art Benefit for Movember.

It’s Movember ya’ll! And the men in your life would like to talk.

Street Artists have donated works to be auctioned by Sotheby’s to benefit the Movember Foundation and to raise awareness about men’s mental health.

You know the story: girls cry but boys are taught to toughen up. Later that shit backfires.

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 44 – because of a number of issues in our society – so let’s find out what those are and try to do it better.

Here’s a video with D*Face speaking frankly to the camera about his own challenges and new works that are up on view at Sotheby’s London starting today through the 20th – from Street Artists like D*Face, Shepard Fairey, Conor Harrington, Felippe Pantone, Alexis Diaz, Okuda, Ben Eine, and Vhils.

More importantly, get that guy in your life to open up.

 

Bill Posters: “La Ley Mordaza Me Obliga” / “The Gag Law Made Me Do It”

Public ad takeovers today from Bill Posters in Placa Espanya in Barcelona to protest the ‘gag law’ in Spain called “Ley Mordaza” that he says is being used to silence political and cultural dissent.

When we read about a law like this in a so-called democratic country we have to ask about all so-called Western Democracies, “Could it happen here?”

Mr. Posters says that many artists, “including rappers like Valtonyc, Pablo Hasél and La Insurgencia are in jail or forced exile after prison sentences were passed in their absence for songs or lyrics that challenged and satired the Spanish state and monarchy.”

This series of interventions feature a black and white portrait with a red bar across the mouth, signifying the silencing of dissent.

Amore “Lucky Russian”

A Russian graffiti jam with quick cuts and a high energy soundtrack, here’s a look at some of the graffiti players at the moment in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Ekaterinburg and Ufa. If you doubted there was a scene in the former USSR, now you know.

 

“Franchise Freedom” by Studio Drift at Burning Man 2018

The tent city at Black Rock in the desert of Nevada that appears every summer to expand creativity and minds and only 40% of attendees are “virgins” while everyone else has attended 2,5,7,11 times before. Over three decades Burning Man has been known a haven for creativity, bonding, hedonism, sex-drugs-theater-fueled adventure, a cultural benchmark, a laboratory for visual experimenting, a tired bloated exercise in privileged escapism for the very people who don’t actually need to escape – depending on who you talk to. Then again, there are the 10 principles created by co-founder Larry Harvey, who passed away this spring. This performance of music by Joep Beving and 600 drones with lights by Studio Drift is to him.
