Claymation Graffiti from Sydney
Sydney is especially into traditional 80s graffiti. “The popularity of this type of spray-can graffiti can be traced back to a very specific time, place and person. His name is Taki183 and, in the very early 1970s, he was a foot courier in New York City.”
This is a well-done animation (claymation) of three young urban hip-hop artists showcasing their art in the well known Sydney legal graffiti thoroughfare May Lane in St Peters, Sydney, Australia.
Because the city of Sydney, Australia actually sets aside a part of the city just for graffiti, artists there don’t have to look over their shoulder to get up. This is a brand new documentary called “From Vandalism to Art” about the current Street Art & Graffiti scene in this neighborhood of Sydney.

Brooklynite’s Dancey Prep for Installation
DANCE ME A DANCE!
Meanwhile, back in Brooklyn – Musical Artist Riva Starr has just released a single and apparently this video is being used to inspire the staff of Brooklynite Gallery to bump and grind as they prepare their new installation. I dare you not to laugh. Or Dance.
When you look at this video and stop snorting, you can look at a couple images from the show they are preparing for, “Stealth, Above the Radar”
It features super cool work like this one from Derek Shumate called “Alien”. The dude is from Houston, Texas. Down there they pronounce that “hews-ton”.
The other artist in the Brooklynite Show on February 13 is Collin Van Der Sluijs. Don’t ask me how to pronounce that. I’m still working on “Doppelganger”, which at first I thought had something to do with testicles, but it turns out it has nothing to do with the Tea-bag Party at all. But I digress.
Brooklynite Gallery is HERE
Collin’s site is http://www.collinvandersluijs.com
And Derek’s is http://www.derekshumate.com
