Ella And Pitr: “Par Terre”

This one soars with a poetry that is sweet, but not saccharine. The rather astonishing French pair Ella and Pitr compile here their enormous drawings that can only be appreciated by birds, people in planes or hot air balloons, and of course, drones. “PAR TERRE” (by Earth) created this compilation of images while traveling to Chile, Portugal, Canada, and France over the last two years. Their materials are water-based ink, coal, chalk, and lime. And their feet.

A simple idea well executed in a brief and entertaining way. Also, rats are cute. Hama Woods says hi from Oslo, Norway.

DAS WIENERWALD in an abandoned Viennese Restaurant

“DAS WIENERWALD“ (translated as The Vienna Woods) is a project formed to take over abandoned buildings and create an art show within them.  Suppose that is what graffiti and Street Artists have been doing for decades, but this is the result of a concentrated week-long effort. This video shows the gradual evolution of thirteen different artists work in an empty restaurant in the center of Vienna to an inexplicable soundtrack of a song made entirely of sampled pieces of “Urgent” by Foreigner.
