BSA Special Feature: Colouring The World. A Film By Okuda San Miguel
The pleasing and bright geometry of Okuda has wide appeal to many audiences and he maximizes the effect with his choice of amiable animals and friendly themes. It’s a worldwide dance party for this artist and last year he took his public and commercial murals to many cities in places like Australia, Tahiti, and Thailand. And Miami, naturally.
Borondo “Golden Gate”
Dude, I told you – turn your phone so it’s landscape when you are doing video!
Just kidding. Here’s a video installation from a group show in March 2017 called COLERA in Rome’s Galleria Varsi.
Made as a stop action animation of a house on fire by Matteo Beradone with music by Enzo Pietropaoli. The multiple monotype prints by the Street Artist/Fine Artist Borondo are moving and crackling, inflected with gold leaf shadings, each different and evocative of the rapid flickering of fire, drowning in a reflective sea.
The group show also included Run, Canemorto and Michele Servadio during a two week residency at the gallery. You can see how the images were displayed in the photo from Borondo below the video
Elbi Elem in Barcelona for 12+1 Project
Here’s a process video of artist Elbi Elem at work on her mural for the 12+1 Project in Barcelona this spring.
To quote ourselves: ” ‘Break with the rectangle as the space to intervened,’ says artist Elbi Elem, the March painter for this wall curated monthly in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain. The abstract muralist says she began making kinetic sculpture in 2002 and has an interest in movement, composition and form.”
Chip Thomas in Santa Fe, New Mexico at Biocultura
Chip Thomas is a master at wheatpasting his large scale photographs, and has been doing this kind of art for many years now, usually with a genuine social mission and without great fanfare. This project is with Social Media Workgroup on the side of the Biocultura event space in Santa Fe, New Mexico
