BSA Images Of The Week 09.02.18 – Artmossphere Biennale 2018

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

It’s been a packed couple of weeks between traveling to Moscow for the Artmossphere Biennale 2018 and immediately hopping to Leipzig, Germany for the magnificent Monumenta opening. Our heads are full of stories and conversations and images in two distinctly different scenes that somehow are still completely connected. Can’t tell if its euphoria or relief or jetlag but this Sunday is a dizzying day of taking account and being really thankful to be involved with an astounding amount of talent and camaraderie in the Graffiti/Street Art/Urban Art community that is connecting people around the world.

Here are our images of the week this time around; some selections from the Thursday night Artmossphere Biennale 2018 in Moscow, featuring 108, 1UP, Adele Renault, Bill Posters, BLOT, Canemorto, CT, the DOMA Collective, Egs, Faith XLVII, Faust, Finsta, Hyland Mather, LOT, Lucy McLauchlan, Lyall Sprong, Martha Cooper, Pablo Harymbat, and Pink Power.

BSA Special Feature: 4 BSA Homemade Videos From This Week in Moscow for Artmossphere

There is a certain glory to all of this; 50 or so artists from around the world who started in Street Art and graffiti now making art that cannot be easily classified as such. After a handful of international curators sifted through 350 applications this represents a moment, possibly one flashpoint in the movement between the street and the contemporary art scene and academia and the public.

For a capital city in Russia to be a facilitator of this conversation is unique because the modern stories we tell each other about this public art practice have rarely centered here. But Moscow has its own towering splendor and is taking a leadership role in helping us tell the history and possibly helping to form the future of this scene. Thursday night the legion of guests trolling the arched halls of the wine cellar could not have been more engaged, more full of question, more willing to consider that the minds and craft of these artists, at least in some cases, are apt reflections of our society, provide insight and critique.

Enjoy these small videos made by photographer Jaime Rojo on his phone this week as we surveyed some of the artists preparing their work for Artmossphere 2018.

Canemorto and the Master “Txakurra” Rise in Moscow For Artmossphere

Canemorto and the Master “Txakurra” Rise in Moscow For Artmossphere

BSA is in Moscow as curators of 50+ international artists in the Artmossphere Biennale 2018 for its 3rd edition called Street Art Wave. Till the end of the month we’ll working with a stellar cross section of people involved with Urban Art/Street Art/Graffiti at curious and fascinating intersections. We’re meeting with Street Artists, academics, collectors, gallerists, museum curators, organizers, and thoughtful pontificators of all sorts in studio, on the street, behind the scenes, and on display. Come with us!


Belgium-based Italian-born three-headed monster Canemorto have been laboring in a tunnel underground to create their installation at Artmossphere this week. The final result will be their analog oracle “Txakurra”, a molten gold god that occurs in their paintings and figures prominently in their full length Street Art road movie Amo-Te Lisboa where this trash-talking deity taunts and harangues them for not being authentically “street” enough, among other failings.

The vision of this glowing golden dog-god at the end of the tunnel perfectly melds the anarchic anti-conventional aesthetic of Canemorto on the street as well as the humorous, almost magical aura that envelopes these artists who have respect for their Italian art history and who are openly mocking of the consumer-culture hypocrisies that shape our present. Ernest and disrespectfully respectful behind their ripped t-shirt and plastic bag masks, Canemorto are nearly everything you need in a post-graffitti world; Graff writers, Street Artists, actors, rappers, and pizza makers.

The interactive piece made of wood, wire, and paper mache follows the “OFFLINE” theme of this years exhibition by returning our communications to an analog form that is all but obsolete today: the written note on a card that is dropped in the mail. Instead of instant communication, guests will write a question, include their return mailing address on the card, and drop it in the mouth of the dog-shaped spirit that represents the key figure of their visual and narrative imagination.

“So then we liked the idea of people sending and receiving postcards” says one of the guys, who are all staying anonymous at this stage of their career. “We were also thinking about the time involved with communication because it is obvious with the Internet now everything is immediate – you want to know something and you have 100 options to choose from.” The three friends who met in art school as teens in the early 2000’s develop ideas and concepts slowly and make their final determination after a lot of debate.

“For us it was also about communications between public and the people,” one of them says,” relating a story about letters that passed between artists and fans, between artists and artists in the past.

“Years ago you would have to look somewhere for the artists’ work and then try to find his address and once you found the address you would have to take time to write in the best way that you could. So we were thinking about all of these things together when we were planning for the exhibition and how to communicate with the people. This is also about hope and faith. You write this letter and then you hope to hear back from them.”

Visitors to the exhibition will be assured of a response – effectively an original piece of art from Canemorto – and it sounds like it will be at least partially related to how thoughtful their question is.

“So if you take your time to write a nice interesting question,” one of them says, “Maybe if you really want a good answer you should ask a big question like ‘Who’s the best street artist in the world?’ or ‘Who is one of the flashiest motherfuckers in the game?’ ”

Canemorto & Angelino Release “Golden Age”

Canemorto & Angelino Release “Golden Age”

Not quite Domingo, Carreras, and Pavarotti but it’s still an historic achievement in the field of music. The inimitable trio of lively street canines known as Canemorto (dead dog) have just dropped a new track straight from Italy entitled “Gipsy Kings”, the eponymous single from their EP “Golden Age”, performed near the end of the mini-documentary below.

And now they’ve brought Angelino into their mix so you know its all FAME for the future with 4 MCs on the mic. Or, to paraphrase the lyrics, Canemorto with their homie from Studio Chromie gives you zero phonies on the microphoney. Talents like this rarely make it past security, let alone into the studio, so the howling results of this musical are remarkably fresh, painfully funny, and sometimes just painful.

Seen here is the still-warm vinyl for all the old skool DJs rocking turntables, with a custom screen printed B side. For a frameable edition of the cover the artists have also dug deep in created custom painted versions. A new single to add to a list of musical contributions to the Street Art/graffiti world, surely a greatest hits collection is on the horizon as these neo-brutalists show their tongue-style is as slick as their handstyle.

Canemorto X Studio Cromie Salute this “Golden Age” in Famed Grottaglie

Canemorto X Studio Cromie Salute this “Golden Age” in Famed Grottaglie

“Angelo, you’ve brought many oafs here,” says his mom at the dinner table, “but these guys… ”

“They really look like rabid dogs,” remarks his father.

Yo Daddy, you’re closer to the truth than you may realize.

Canemorto rapping through the winding streets of Grottaglie, Italy in Golden Age.

Everyone’s favorite Italian trio of graffiti-writing, Street-Art-painting, canvas-painting, rapper-pizza-makers are back on the big screen! And they are still failing successfully.

It’s a running joke now that these witless brothers-in-art are tormented by myriad intertwined demons about their insecurities and conflicts with seeking/avoiding commercial “success” and the mainstreaming/authenticity of the Street Art scene in street culture.

Golden Age, their solo show this fall is hosted by Studio Cromie and Angelo Raffaele Milano, the owner of the 11 year old gallery and empresario behind FAME festival.

FAME, of course, was of the first so-called Street Art festivals, far before the current onslaught of festivals in cities and towns everywhere. FAME was underground and seemingly authentic before Milano halted it after five years for many of the same conflicting feelings Canemorto has expressed about commodification of the counter-culture. You’ll see an ad for his now-touring “FAME” movie embedded within this one.

Fake it till you make it. Canemorto sporting slick New York shades in Golden Age.

Golden Age is the new partner video to the show, and the Marco Prosperpio directed film follows the hapless trio through the streets of Grottaglie, Italy, or as one Canemorto calls it in their rap, an “historic shithole”.

“It represents a sort of sequel of our previous video Toys,” Canemorto tells us, “this time the infamous trio has to fool both a crazy gallerist and a gloomy record producer in the desperate hope of getting rich and famous.” Ever brutal and ever witty, this is an ingenious way to fail.

Together with the video Canemorto is publishing Golden Age EP, a vinyl record (12” – 30×30 cm) with 4 of their jams on side A and a silkscreen print on side B.

Alongside the standard edition, there is also a special edition of 10 copies with handpainted covers, all different from each other.

BSA Special Feature: Canemorto – Pizzeria Da Cane Morto

So it’s Friday and you were thinking of having a pizza party, weren’t you? Luckily your favorite brutalist painters from Italy also know a little bit about the art of pizza.

Welcome to the Pizzeria Da Cane Morto, where the pie is baked by vandals. Twerking included with the price. Bring the kids!

The multi-talented Canemorto Trio also dropped a new limited edition of ten screen-printed pizza boxes that each contain an handmade pizza-sculpture. Order their pizza here: http://wordouteditions.bigcartel.com/

Miss Van – La Symphonie des Songes

This quick video shows the printing process of the new Miss Van ‘La Symphonie des Songes’ etching edition produced and published by Goldmark Atelier, UK.

This edition is based on a mural that Miss Van painted in her home town of Toulouse in 2016.

 

Berlin Kidz x 1UP in Berlin

“One United Uber Power” is how this new video is described, appearing to unite the two crews who appear to be most prolific in graffiti in Berlin right now – although its hard to tell with these masks. The music score follows the action, with a bit of train surfing before the coalescing of crews at the station, the rapid whole-car tagging, the bewildered train riders, the flummoxed authorities – all drawn in such broad strokes that it may call to mind cartoons from Saturday morning with bandits and coppers.

 

Cinta Vidal / RAD Napa

With buildings rotating and tumbling through the sky, everything secure has been uprooted and set adrift in this new mural by Cinta Vidal in California. The third mural in the RAD Napa project to promote the Napa valley and wine country as seen via train, this new one is curated by Thinkspace, shot by Birdman. Looking forward to seeing Cinta in Sweden this September at No Limit Boras!

Canemorto in the Norwegian Countryside

Canemorto in the Norwegian Countryside

As satisfyingly “street” as it is to dodge 18-wheelers that barrel down Flushing Avenue like they want to kill you and to wipe a quarter inch of caked cement dust and grime from your face when painting in Bushwick or to inhale the oily toxic smelling air when wheat-pasting in Newton Creek or building a sculpture on the banks of the Gowanus canal that “smells overwhelmingly like an army of demonically-possessed feet,” even graff writers and street artists occasionally long for the wide open spaces of the countryside. Sometimes a homey just wants to get out to the pasture and talk to a cow and hit up a barn.

We’ve documented the increased interest in rural buildings being hit by street artists a number of times in the last few years, and while we may not have declared it to be a trend yet, be prepared to see painted more sheds and silos the next time you head out of the city to see the fall foliage.

The brutalist portraiture of Italian Street Artists Canemorto has been featured here a handful of times and today we take you to their ex-urban art explorations recently in Norway, where the trio were invited for a two week residency in Ranavik.  When they weren’t conducting workshops on collective mural painting at an art school and creating a small exhibit at a local gallery, they were improvising on cylindrical shaped architecture and the occasional barnside.

Gestural and in the moment, the final compositions call to mind Picasso, Francis Bacon, and the energy of newer painters like Alexandros Vasmoulakis, Anthony Lister and Simon Birch – but unpolished and proud of it. Canemorto also know how to steer clear of the painfully self-reverent style that can afflict some contemporaries as they throw in the freewheeling spirit of Dr. Seuss to keep us from taking it all too seriously.

“It was a great experience,” the guys say of their trip to this small island on the southwest coast, and of course they did some walls in Ranavik and Bergen to complete the city-country cycle. Interestingly, their style translates well to both barn and abandoned factory wall.

Canemorto Stares Madly at London and Bristol

Canemorto have just galloped around Bristol and London for a few weeks and have left a number of these somberly bewildered guys in their wake. You remember in our last visit with the trio whose name means “dead dog” the stretched out horizontal is a particular favorite, and it it occurs to you that they may have something of a predilection for Picasso-esque portraits as they return to these sort of deranged dudes again and again.

(photo © Canemorto)

These gesticulating and grimacing sitters seem to have a lot on their mind, and who can blame them given the downward chugging economy, tiny apartments, longer working hours, government austerity and what not. Even so, these perplexed posers are not troublesome, rather than troubled. Either way, the energy of the lines and the clattering of the strokes as they bang into one another keeps these new pieces by Canemorto stealing the scene.

Canemorto (Dead Dog) Across Italy

Canemorto (Dead Dog) Across Italy

Gutteral grunts of smeared color across lumpen or attenuated limbs akimbo, eye balls bulging and staring with body language and gestures happily inclusive, the Canemorto trio are grotesquely entertaining many a wall across Italy these days.  Neneboy, Zenop, and Azz the One are three Italian Street Artists “who paint together as a single person” using the name that means “dead dog”.

Canemorto. Milano, Italy. (photo © Canemorto)

Not exactly mannerists like Il Parmigianino, you can still see the painting DNA of a rich cultural heritage inform their freewheeling  hand even as they elongate and distort and recolor, letting the street encourage spontaneity, as it often will. Like a dead dog along the roadside, you may feel a little put off, but you also feel compelled to inspect it nonetheless. And perhaps take a picture. In a way, that could be the intention.

Here we look at recent pieces from Milano at night, a work made in Lodi in collaboration with EmaJons and Cripsta, and a work made in Saronno. A special shout out to photographer El Pacino for the excellent black and white night shots.
