The Lurkers: “Bricks of Parmigiano”
“Bunga, Bunga, bitches, Berlusconi,” raps the yet-to-be rap sensation Lurky Luciano as his new single drops. A send-up of Hip-Hop cliches with slow flow, satire, train writing, pasta, free Gaza, plenty of stereotypes about Italian culture, this new video by The Lurkers brings it. Also your homie Jesus appears in the sky at the end, as he will.
India’s Largest Mural: Tribute to Dadasaheb Phalke in Bombay

General Howe Hijacks GI Joe: “Hector Delgado Has PTSD”
Street Artist General Howe has been delving into a new area of storytelling with his re-editing of cartoons to tell the horrors of war. It is a critique of a culture that simultaneously heroicizes and ignores the people who volunteer to fight. “The whole story is pieced together with existing GI Joe cartoon footage along with my animated gifs. I actually used no voice actors and a handful of free sound effects/recordings from the internet – and lots of tedious editing! From a street art perspective I see it as being similar to hijacking an advertisement and subverting the context,” says the General
No Limit Street Art Borås.
It’s coming back this September for its second edition, and here is a teaser for it.
