BSA Special Feature: Eid Mubarak:
A Calligraffiti Greeting from eL Seed
Guess we are a day late for this maybe since the EID celebrations were actually yesterday as Ramadan 2013 came to a close, but how often do you get to see an EID greeting created by a graffiti artist? Um, never.
So for all the BSA folks who celebrate the big EID holiday we say “Mubarak EID”, and for everybody else, here’s a fun way to use traditional calligraphic skills and merge with graffiti.
Timing is Everything: ABOVE
From Shoreditch here’s ABOVE with a small stencil that is all about context. He says it took him over seven months of searching night time streets to find the perfect fixed shadow on a wall, but we think he just is a slow stencil cutter. “I am attracted to the concept that the stencil and it’s context can change literally from day to night,” says ABOVE in the description accompanying the video. So apparently it is not just about context. “Timing is everything!” says he.
Aeon – Bogan in London via VNA
In Australia they are called Bogans. We just call them a family reunion. But when Aeon puts on that mullet and mustache and acts a fool while spraycationing in London, we think he may also be inventing a certain kind of drag. No need to be derogatory – It’s all about inhabiting your character and owning it, people!
