BSA Special Feature: Global Street Art: “Cultural Vandals”?
Calmer, more measured perhaps, and still pissed off at those who appropriate the culture and then mow it over, here’s Doug Gillen examining a community led mural program being dissed by a fast food corporation in Cardiff, Wales. More alarming perhaps are the middle people who smooth the path and take a cut, according to this new episode of Fifth Walls, called “Cultural Vandals”.
DOES: Cement Graffiti piece at Amsterdam’s STRAAT Museum
An unusual feat of art-making that brings his piece into another dimension, DOES builds up the foundation for his lettering with a carefully applied layer of cement. STRAAT Museum has the story and DOES brings the skillz.
New Border. Imagine a different kind of Southern Border between the USA and Mexico.
