BSA Special Feature: Tengu: God of Mischief – Subway Skating
“This gets me beyond hyped for living in NYC next year,” says someone named Josh in the comments on YouTube after viewing this outtake from a film by Colin Read. Okay, true story, this doesn’t occur very much and we recommend you look at a few videos of skateboarding FAILS before you get all hyped about jumping the 3rd rail for fun. But what the hell, its Independence Day in New York so this has LIBERTY written all over it.
Ein Wandblatt aus Wien: Handcrafted Graffiti Magazine
And while we’re on the topic of adolescent male humor, here’s a pastiche that we can’t quite figure out intended to promote a hand crafted graffiti magazine. NSFW (or school for that matter), but you probably don’t have a job if you make it that far into this video anyway.
Mateo – Argentina Street Art
Painted during his trip to Argentina this year, Mateo takes a relaxed and colorful and interactive approach. The first wall is in the city of Cordoba and the other in Buenos Aires with the help of his Argentinian friends Ever and Jaz.
Narcélio Grud and Binho Ribeiro help open “A Panorama of Graffiti”
Urban artists Narcélio Grud and Binho Ribeiro participated in the “A Panorama of Graffiti in Brazil.” in the beginning of June. Not much of a story here, but good to see the artists facing the camera for a minute. The project is to draw attention to the O Porto Iracema das Artes, a training school and cultural center for artists who work in film, television, animation, game design, multimedia, dance, music, and all sorts of studies for the creative sorts. The new piece by Binho looks almost effortless as this master of the can blesses the spirit of the Dragão do Mar Center.
Alexis Diaz for Wall/Therapy 2014
A quick look at a wall born during a storm in Rochester by Alexis Diaz.
Happy July 4th Everybody!
This is the kind of show there will be in the skies in Brooklyn tonight. Head for the roof!
