Salton Sea Road Trip with Eddie Colla, 2wenty, Caratoes, and Nite Owl

Posted on October 21, 2014

New images today from the barren detritus by Salton Sea in the Colorado Desert near the San Andreas fault line. Here near the water is a landscape littered with sheet metal, stories, tumbleweeds, and skeletons of simple squat structures once useful, now merely casting a shadow.

Until someone decides to clean up the man made remnants of industry and architecture you can be sure that some artist is going to consider that leaning structure or door-less domain to be exactly the perfect canvas for experimentation. Saltier than the Pacific ocean, this sea is also man made; “accidentally created by the engineers of the California Development company in 1905,” says the Wiki entry, and the arid climate will likely keep some of these facades till they are fossils.

Far from any cities or urban landscapes,  four Bay Area artists took a road trip recently to do some site specific works and to photograph each others’ creations here under the enormous expanse of sky. Thanks to Eddie Colla, 2wenty, Caratoes, and Nite Owl for sharing what they found here, and to Nastia Voynovskaya for bringing this to our attention.

“2wenty takes long­ exposure shots that enable him to write in the air by physically moving a light source across the frame as the camera captures its motion,” says Nastia Voynovskaya, “This writing, invisible to the naked eye, lives on only in the form of photography.” 2wenty (photo © 2wenty)

Banksy Hoax, Does Dutch Master Remix of “Girl With the Pearl Earring”

Posted on October 20, 2014

Two things in the news today about Street Art man of mystery, Banksy:

Thing 1: He was not arrested, cuffed and covered with a shroud yesterday as reported and re-Tweeted throughout the street-art-isphere, but that hoax was excellent!  (Also, don’t you think he must be older than 35 by now?) See video at end.

Thing 2: It looks like he has just created a new piece referencing a 350 year old painting by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer that uses a pearl earring for a focal point. In Banksy’s case, it is golden ADT security alarm box.

Brooklyn-Street-Art-Banksy-Girl-Pearl-Earring“Girl With the Pierced Ear” in this new image just released online, appears to be Banksy’s monochromatic take on the oil master Vermeer, below.

A lovely cafe from which you can enjoy some chips and a refreshment while gazing upon the new masterpiece by Banksy.

 

 

See the official Banksy site for more murky details, where we found the images above.

 

 

BANKSY Nabbed! Well, maybe not.

Nick Walker Falls in Love With NYC

Posted on October 20, 2014

Bristol born graffiti / Street / fine artist Nick Walker has fallen in love with New York during these last couple of years. The stencilist whose work pre-dates the popularity of his town-mate Banksy, has been bringing his bowler-hatted avatar to streets around the world after beginning in Bristols 80s-90s graffiti scene. The well meaning and smartly dressed quizzical investigator is a vandal at heart of course, but one who appreciates culture and architecture.brooklyn-street-art-nick-walker-jaime-rojo-10-14-web-2

Walker’s pop-up show “All I Ever Wanted Was My Name On Fire” opened last Friday and if you don’t want to miss it we recommend you take a trip to the Lower East Side to see it before it closes this Friday. In it you see the myriad new venues that Nick has discovered in Gotham and you get a simplistic sense of the discovery that so many newcomers have when first developing a romance with dirty old New York. It’s a romance that you never want to end actually.

A new print run is nearly sold out (if not already) but you also have the opportunity to purchase a copy of his new book at the gallery.
