BSA Special Feature: Shepard Fairey – The Intersection of Art and Music
It’s an advertisement for something but Shepard’s recollections of making the connection between art and music, specifically between the punk era and its effect on his creatively formative years, go a long way to illustrate his recurring themes and aesthetic. Interesting that the title is part of a Sound and Vision series, the same theme that is currently running through Faile’s work at their new club downtown, Deluxx Fluxx; “an immersive visual and audial art space and arcade”.
Shepard Fairey – The Intersection of Art and Music – Via Syng
La Fuite – Pantonio. Via Street Art Fest Grenoble – Alpes 2022
A gentle flickering flyby of “The Flight” by Pantonio for the Street Art Fest Grenoble in the Alps.
“Escape or think about the moment a single gesture changed direction,” says Pantonio.”When resistance collaborates in the opposite direction. Each one with his poetry or his determination”
