BSA Special Feature:
Shepard Fairey’s Wall in Little Italy

Produced by Element Tree, this is the video by Serringe that just came out a couple of days ago of Shepard Fairey’s recent installation in New York.


ARYZ  for CityLeaks

From the CityLeaks Urban Arts Feastival in Cologne, Germany, here is ARYZ speaking about the largest skeleton he’s every painted.

Robots Spraying Out the Window – Jeff Soto

This car manufacturer placed robots in a car to spray the walls to give their product some street cred. While they are busy patting themselves on the back we’re reminded of many street art autonomous innovators who have done this kind of work on the streets before, like Mudlevel, who created the Robo-Rainbow three years ago (below). Self-funded experimenters have jerry-rigged bikes, scooters, contraptions, machines, even drones to spray paint onto walls over the last decade so this brand hasn’t pioneered anything new necessarily. Possibly they just saw the Alexander McQueen robots spraying a dress in 1999.

Cool project nonetheless and props to artist Jeff Soto for his continued good work.


A splendid look at street ingenuity and over-thinking the simplest job. Clap your hands for MUDLEVEL.


Augmented reality continues to grow into the consumer world and this app will help you to replace those pesky print messages foisted into the public space with, oh, art.

Perhaps soon when you scan one of those hideous new all-car subway advertising campaigns it will trigger a full car piece by Lee Quinones! Now that’s an idea worth pursuing!

Edoardi Tresoldi “Pensieri” For street art festival “OLTRE IL MURO” in Sapri, Italy

A permanent installation of electro-welded net for Oltre il Muro festival, in Sapri, Italy, bends perception depending on the angle it is seen from, especially when shot by drone.


Grafideo = Graffiti + Video * Ryan Seslow / Adam Void * Handstyles

In their second collaboration, this Street Art and graffiti duo offer up their latest experiment combining their interests and skills and feeding them through a series of texturing. “This is what happens when new-school meets old-school, when technology collides with the primal. Real life distortion of spray tags & letter styles merged with animated gifs & overlay filters.”

A writer who has used Arabic lettering since 2003, A1one just completed this new piece and translates it for us. “The word is Love (Ishq). In all the Middle East they can understand the meaning of this word… It refers to the divine or clean kind of love,” says A1one.

30 Works Gallery Presents: “Dirty Words” A Group Exhibition. (Cologne, Germany)

Gruppenausstellung mit Decycle , EMESS, L.E.T., Marc Peschke, mittenimwald, Various & Gould und Van Ray

„dirty works @ 30works“ geht in die vierte Runde. Ein weiteres Mal wird die Kölner 30works Galerie zur Spielfläche, zum Experimentierfeld, zum Treffpunkt der Jungen Wilden der Kunstszene. Streetart? Pop Art? Bildende Kunst? Es ist heute schwer, da noch eine Grenze zu ziehen. Diesmal sind Decycle, EMESS, L.E.T., Marc Peschke, mittenimwald, Various & Gould und Van Ray zu sehen – Stars und Talente aus ganz Deutschland: eine wilde Mischung. Ausstellungseröffnung ist am Samstag, den 26. Januar, um 20 Uhr.

Streetart ist rau. Sie ist handgemacht. Sie ist ein Spiel mit Zeichen und Codes. Manchmal ist sie wie eine feindliche Übernahme, lässt einen Raum des Widerspruchs entstehen. „dirty works vol. IV“ bietet nicht weniger als einen Culture Clash, einen kulturellen Mustermix. Neueste Pop-Hybride, rau und unmittelbar werden hier präsentiert. Spektakuläre Bilder, junge Kunst, die provoziert und anmacht, die den Kunstbetrieb herausfordert, die nach einem anderen Leben giert, die sich wehrt gegen Kommerzialisierung und Gentrifizierung der Städte, die sich als Gegenpol versteht, als beißender Kommentar auf eine zunehmend normierte Umwelt. Diese Kunst ist vielgestaltig, technisch wie inhaltlich – aber vor allem ist sie: nie langweilig. Streetart, Urban Art und Bildende Kunst. Neue, frische Bilder. Jetzt zu sehen in Köln bei „dirty works vol. IV @ 30works“.

Finissage: Sonntag, 24. Februar von 15 bis 18 Uhr.
Ausstellung: 26.01.2013 bis 23.02.2013
Di-Fr 15-19 Uhr, Sa 11-17 Uhr sowie nach Vereinbarung.

30works Galerie
Antwerpener Str. 42
50672 Köln

Word to Mother solo show “Essence of Adolescence” Friday Stolen Space Gallery

‘Essence of Adolescence’ is an enlightening glimpse into the artist’s visually obsessed mind. Word To Mother invites the viewer to take a glimpse of his inner mindscape. An outward manifestation that combines references drawn from his childhood and the visual stimulation that he absorbed; cartoons juxtaposed with more serious emotive thoughts and fears that face him as an adult living and painting in East London.
