BSA Special Feature: Icy & Sot “Plastic Shells”
Demonstrating once again that when you are an artist the world is your oyster for creativity, Street Artists Icy & Sot play on a popular folk myth that if you hold a seashell to your ear, usually a conch shell, you will hear the sound of the ocean. The rush and the resonance of swelling and crashing waves upon the sand is captured and forever transmitted by the open cavity of the seashell. In this small conceptual video piece the brothers take you to the beach with a new friend to gather seashells and hold them up to your ear.
New Yorker’s can see a new piece by Icy & Sot that one of them in their studio modeled on BSA a couple of weeks ago tonight in a group show by curators Victoria Latysheva and Melissa McCaig-Welles, as they present “Trumpomania”. It’s all mixed media from artists in 35 countries, ruminating on you-know-who.
NWO 3 – ABIK “Gestural”
20+ years of graffiti under his belt, Abik is getting abstract.
It’s third in a series of programs he has led and this one will feature work by many of the next generation who are coming to the streets and canvasses with alternatives to the figurative as well as the wild style – sort of a “no wave” approach to walls.
“The name of the event – NWO as New WALL Order – plays with the illuminati & conspiracy theories’ tagging to ironically highlight new horizons of our post-graffiti scene via the signature-wallpaintings,” says Marco Contardi, an Italian free writer and curator.
Previous editions of NWO included artists like 108, 2501, Giorgio Bartocci, CT, Eleuro and Ufocinque, as well as then Abik, Alfano, Alberonero, Aris, Giorgio Bartocci, Centina, G.Loois x Domenico Romeo, Luca Font and Sbagliato Collective.
Call it post-graffiti, or graffuturism, but these guys hope you’ll appreciate the gesture.
