BSA Special Feature: Aaron Li-Hill: The Impact Of Discovery in Kiev.
A special treat for you today with this 360 degree interactive opportunity to buzz around Aaron Li-Hill as he completes “The Impact of Discovery”, his large-scale mural which we covered last month (Li-Hill in Motion and “The Impact of Discovery” in Kiev). Have fun scrubbing around with your mouse directly on the screen to see the action from every angle.
Part of a special program of 30 artists painting in Kiev, Odessa and Chernihiv, this roundabout view allows you to see the artist and understand his environment in a way not previously available in Street Art videos, further connecting the viewer to the process.
Congratulations to FILM.UA Group, Digital Cinema Ukraine for this piece, and we look forward to the next video from this International Festival of Urban Art called Mural Social Club 2016.
Isaac Cordal: The Painter
Isaac Cordal is expanding his practice beyond the small sculptures that he places strategically throughout the cityscape. Here is a new video that gives us a hint of the direction he is going in; a staged scene in the woods with a camouflaged military man of no discernable allegiance. He silently appears to be discovering his creative side.
Tilt. Part I. Interviewed by Steven P. Harrington of BSA at Jardin Rouge in Morocco.
This spring we had the opportunity to speak with French graffiti artist Tilt at Jardin Rouge, a unique residency just outside Marrakesh begun by a dedicated fan of graffiti and street art named Jean-Louis. Now at the advent of the recently founded Montresso Foundation exhibition building, we were treated to a behind the scenes look at the inaugural show; Tilt’s two-part sculpture of a sawed-in-half car representing migration of city folk to the country and vice versa.
“You are surrounded by people you know and people who know your work and people are expecting something from you. And then you can be more free I think. And then you can try and even if it doesen’t work, even if it is a failure, you can be like, “It’s okay.” It’s part of the game.” ~ Tilt
In coordination with Urban Nation (UN), BSA co-founder Steven P. Harrington has a wide-ranging talk with the artist that touched on his residency with Jardin Rouge, his fascination with examination of duality, and his own studied moves from the street to the gallery to private collections. This week we feature two small excerpts from that interview for your enjoyment.
