BSA Special Feature: Mujeres Creando – Women Creating
From Bolivia comes this profile of feminists who use graffiti as a way to advance their political views, to raise awareness, to seek justice and equality for women. For these writers, graffiti is fighting instrument.
“I am going to show you the graffiti that the girls and I do at night,” says one of your hosts as she drives through a neighborhood and explains how she keeps an eye out while her co-sprayers write slogans like “Keep your rosaries out of our ovaries” on walls.
“We are not artists,” explains one of the crew, “We are street stirrers.”
Making LED Street Art – Hard Science
Not sure if Graffiti Research Lab (GRL) envisioned this mainstreaming of their ideas would come to fruition, but on the other hand, we are in love with these two smarty-pants experimenting brainiac hosts. Just watch. Like Fat Albert used to say, if you’re not careful you just might learn something.
BMD x Orchestra Wellington in New Zealand
Nothing like having a live accompaniment to your mural painting – especially when it is a small orchestra.
