BSA Special Feature: BANKSY – A Quick Look Back – Exit Through the Gift Shop
Because retrospectively assessing hype can be illuminating, and you can see how it has aged, and because we are always attracted to this contorted phone booth sculpture that undeniably emanates the style of Banksy, here’s a snippet from “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” A Dozen years on, what are your impressions?
REVENGE OF NATURE – Orakle And Atmo. Via Spray Daily.
Damn, that is serious rappelling! This is anonymously rappelling a dam for serious impact.
Styled as a nihilist dark pair of dual painting eco-activists, these Berlin-based Pixacao performance artists Orakle and Atmo want you to think about the “Revenge of Nature” that is currently underway. Selling the earth to the highest bidding abuser drives us down, and O&A are casting the case in dramatic thriller-movie terms to blow up their message.
5 MINUTES WITH: IKARUS in BERLIN. Via I Love Graffiti
BYY Laura subtly shadows pixacao-writing, train-surfing Icarus as he hops over third rails and climbs out onto the street from an underground tunnel with master-of-fact aplomb. Great shots and integration. For the record, train surfing kills people. Don’t do it. Beware Icarus; you will very likely regret the fall.
De La Soul – A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturday
Celebrating Trugoy and De La Soul today and Every Day. Wanna go skating this weekend?
