BSA Special Feature: Felipe Pantone by Selina Miles
Director Selina Miles catapulted Felipe Pantone into the minds of many art fans and Urban Art curators when she made this brief but densely rich and enlightening profile of him a little while ago. It is impossible to tell who is more talented here – the artist in front of the camera or the one behind it.

Stik in Shoreditch as it Succumbs to the Final Throes of Gentrification
“I wanted to create that feeling of alienation and isolation but with the feeling of hope,” says Stik of his new mural in old Shoreditch. In the process of research and development for the mural he spoke with people in the neighborhood and nearby surroundings to gather a sense of history of the place as an artists conclave before the bankers decided to cash in on the culture. Why do we hear this story again and again?
This one is very well told.
The Giant Walls. Massey High School Brings Graffiti/Street Art to Students in West Auckland
An inspiring and simple approach to making sure that art heals the world – which it does. “The Giant Walls” is a simple project at Massey High School on the northern boundary of West Auckland.
These 16 junior students are great and so are the staff and nine artists who cared enough to make this project happen.
