BSA Special Feature: The (mostly) True Story of Hobo Graffiti
Anthropologists and graffitiologists have been trying to piece together the antecedents for mark-making in the modern era. Many times the history is rather North America-based, as is this particular tributary, but of course our need to leave proof of our existence is global and forever. How to fit that into a 3 minute video that won’t send Millenials to sleep? Instead, we present: Hobo Graffiti! Have a good ride friends.
Bathroom Run at Urban Spree in Berlin
This would be the precisely perfect time for Smell-O-Vision! Sometimes photographer Jaime Rojo finds a location so completely three dimensionally awe-inspiring that the only way to fully share it with you is through video. Like the Sistine Chapel, for example. Or the bathrooms at Urban Spree! Imagine these during a night of eclectically selected music thumping, full of a splendid selection of thespians, punks, painters, poets, fornicators, miscreants, and the occasional real estate investor all drunkenly scuffling through – and you’ll get a better idea of these walls in all their glory.
1UP Crew in Moscow for Artmossphere Biennale 2018
A few weeks ago in Moscow we had the opportunity to co-curate the exhibition for the Artmossphere Biennale 2018 with some knowledgeable and talented folks and leaders in the expansive field of graffiti/Street Art/urban art/contemporary art. Among those were the envelope pushing all-city, all-world 1UP crew. Anonymous and amorphous, you never know who is behind the t-shirt mask, but when the cans start there is no doubt. Here are a couple from the crew who left their mark at Winzavod while on break from installing their work in the Biennale.
