BSA Special Feature: Our Nation’s Sons – Joe Caslin
“As a nation we have pushed a significant number of our young men to the very edges of society and created within them feelings of neglect and apathy. It is now time to empower these young lads and give them a sense of belonging,” says artist Joe Caslin of his Street Art project in Ediburgh, Scotland entitled “Our Nation’s Sons“.
The project that addresses marginalized youth is captured with a moody cinematic flair in this new video featuring the most recent wheatpaste of Joe Caslin’s drawings in Galway.
Ludo: The Chaos Theory
A one minute promo of Ludo in studio as he presumably prepares for his big show at Lazarides in October.
Stinkfish Smashes Austrian Bus
The world is just in black and white until Stinkfish sets it alive in color, completely smothering a huge Graz city bus in paint to promote the Livin’ Streets Festival in Graz, Austria.
Tom Herck: Searching for Light
A stained glass tribute by artist Tom Herck on the side of this decommissioned hospital has more meaning than this simple video can imply.
The image is a tribute to his mother who he says was rescued from the street as a child by the nuns at St-Anna hospital (St-Truiden Belgium), and who also worked here for more than 45 years as a cleaning lady.
“The hospital is closed now and I wanted to do a tribute to my mother,” he tells BSA.
The Landfill Harmonic Orchestra Fashions Music from Garbage
D.I.Y. as a means of survival is not the same as art school graduates joining a knitting circle on Wednesday nights. This community lives on a landfill and has ingeniously, no, miraculously, produced musical instruments from refuse. The resulting music and sense of pride is mountainous and the reason we stay in this beautiful journey to discover the creative spirit.
