BSA Special Feature: He Does it All: 5 In a Row from DOES

From time to time we focus our BSA Film Friday section on one artist or filmmaker. The focus of this Friday’s edition of BSA Film Friday is the Dutch artist DOES.

DOES aka Joos van Barneveld was born in The Netherlands in 1982. Active in graffiti since 1997 DOES was at some point balancing his soccer career with his secret life as a graffiti writer. Becoming a professional soccer player for one of the premier soccer teams in the highest division in his native country, DOES was forced to stop playing soccer after an injury at the age of 28. Joos took this setback as an opportunity to perfect his craft as an artist and to dedicate all his time to the pursuit of his love for art and graffiti. He has since excelled at his craft and is now internationally known for his abstract paintings, murals, and sculptures still based on the letterform. Below we share with you five videos of DOES journey as an artist.

BSA Special Feature: RUN: Bye Bye Dolphin!

“Where’s my dolphin?”

“The dolphin is gone,” says street artist RUN on this London wall as school kids run and roll past him.

You wonder when you see these murals that we publish week after week what it must be like for a Street Artist to interact with the public while painting. The truth is, it varies from city to city – people can be quite timid. Or blithely disinterested. Or loquacious, opinionated, even invasive.

Not only do you have to orchestrate your idea, plan the logistics, and execute your vision, you have to be this agreeable sociologist who takes all commentary in stride and even occasionally have a meaningful exchange. It’s up to you. And its up to the street.

In this new video by RUN we have the opportunity to see the interactions of people on the street with the artist in London, and it can be very illuminating.

RERO: Installation in situ – Desert d’Agafay – Montresso Art Foundation

Ahh, to gaze upon the Atlas mountains across the desert in Marakesh in April. Anything but stressful. Yet..

French Street Artist and conceptual artist RERO can as easily be inside as outside, urban and, as you can see here, rural.

Balancing the image negation of his text based works, these installations with Montresso Foundation and Jardin Rouge show how the artist defines the space, adapting and adopting the context as actor.


Here are a couple of insightful, high quality videos from ILoveGraffiti.de and their web series STREET ATELIER in cooperation with ARTE CREATIVE, featuring the artists L’Atlas and DOES.
