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: “BY VIRTUE OF” a collaboration project between Faith XLVII and Zane Mayer

Hands have appeared across walls often across these last two decades – a favorite focus for so many street artists and muralists – from GAIA to Case MaClaim and Pixel Pancho to “The Praying Hands” by Albrecht Dürer turned upside down in Athens, Nathan Murdoch’s two hands in the shape of a heart in Peterborough, UK, Saype‘s global hands project, Chip Thomas’s hands in the Arizona desert, and current façade of the Stadmuseum in Oldenburg, Germany.

These hands first appeared projected on a 10 story building in Jacksonville, Florida. A compilation of hands filmed during interviews with America’s homeless, the collaborative video piece by Zane Meyer and Faith XLVII is instructive, expansive, colorful, genuine. Say the artists about the focus of this work, “Like books, the hands tell stories of what they have been through. Slow movements, delicate gestures, and subconscious motions make up the scenes of the film – a match is lit, stones are organized, tattoos are shown, sand is filtered. Clenched hands narrate stories of power, or anger, while open hands suggest an offering or a search for an embrace.”

Five Minutes with: 1UP Crew in Berlin – Via I LOVE GRAFFITI.DE

Looks like 1UP Crew are up to no good, as usual. On a large scale, as usual. Impressive, as usual.
