Lucy McLauchlan: Coexist
Do you get high? Listen to this soundtrack and go full screen and contemplate Lucy as she dialates your eyeballs with a black and white mural titled “Coexist”. Just released, the scene is from the Bien Urbain festival from two years ago in Besançon, but thanks to these scratching popping beats by Photay it actually takes place in a lost afternoon. Dude, don’t fall out of the cherry picker bucket!
Boa Mistura: Live To Learn/Vive Para Aprender
A meditative look at a monochromatic mural by Boa Mistura in India. The narrator breaks it down for you.
“LIVE TO LEARN”
Shiva’s three eyes (the Present, the Past and the Future) with the Lotus flower, symbol of purity on top.
“Live as if you are going to die tomorrow. Learn as if you are going to live forever”, a quote by Mahatma Gandhi tattooed on the four arms of Sarasvati, Goddess of the fine arts.
Ganesh, God of intelligence and wisdom, the plumage of the peacock, God of War, a Baobab, tree of life…
With all this imaginary, present in all India, we created the image of the Tiger, victory over any force, and we tattoed it on this old corner of Delhi
FINDAC “Magnificent 7”
“A film of 7 portraits created by urban aesthetic artist FIN DAC in Dublin, Ireland.”
A top quality view of the artist and the work. The word “magnificent” is perfectly appropriate here.
The art of Andrzej Urbanski by Rowan Pybus
A short film introducing the art of Andrzej Urbanski, you get to see and hear what makes him tick. An excellent description of his goals, motivations, frustrations, and inspiration.
SOLO fifteen hours in London: The Magpie Project
A nice home made timelapse video of SOL painting in Brick Lane. Obviously the guy is inspired by comic books and superheroes. Fun!
