BSA Special Feature: Art Is Rubbish Is Art, Penang: Ernest Zacharevic
A visual documentary of George Town & Ernest Zacharevic, 2011-2014 – A Street Artist who is known for incorporating objects of a three dimensional nature with this paintings on walls, Ernest Zacharevic has been ingeniously implementing a childlike imagination and an affinity for play into each work, no matter how humble the location. Not to be confused with the artist who goes by the name Art is Trash, Zacharevic simply shows that no object can ever be discredited entirely when you have the ability to imagine. Here is a fast moving survey through a number of installations he accomplished in the last three years.
Argentina Street Art 2014: Favela & Arawak Tainos
“Two walls painted during my trip in Argentina 2014, one is FAVELA in the city of Cordoba, the other one ARAWAK TAINOS realized in Buenos Aires (Padilla 921) with the help of Argentinian friends Ever, Jaz, and people of the GALPON !”
Urban Nation Project presents Project M/4 (Berlin)
A pretty stunning presentation of the fourth installation of Project M in Berlin featuring Andrew Hosner of ThinkSpace Gallery as curator this spring.
Razon Comun on a Concrete Column in Spain
There is an endless amount of concrete that is blighting our natural and artificial landscape – “Have You Hugged a Concrete Pillar Today?” According to that blog post by Bill Gates, China has really ramped up the worldwide production of it in the last few years – producing more concrete in the last 3 years than the U.S. produced in a hundred. Huh?
Here in Girona, Spain, The Razon Commune (Kwets, Once, Sener y Spogo) decided to adorn the supporting column of a massive highway overhead. It’s unclear whether this was officially sanctioned or not, but it has a good beat and you can kind of dance to it if you are a robot of some sort.
“El Hijo De La Luna” CIX – SPAIK in Mexico, DF
Okay so who’s more stoned on peyote in this video: the director (Spaik), the artists (Cix and Spaik), or the kids who are going to get to play in this room when it is finished? A masterful quik-cut dizzying piece of storytelling on the walls dips into Mexican and possibly Andean folk lore, and is that the Kool-Aid guy?
