BSA Special Feature: OFICIO: Short Doc from Cordoba, Argentina

This week we have a short documentary showing the development of an artists residence in the city of Cordoba, which housed several artists from different cities. Done in cooperation with Kosovo Gallery, the mural projects objective is to develop a series of murals in two districts of the city. Here in Spanish the artists talk about their experiences and the interaction with the communities that they are working within – whom will live with the works once the artists have departed.

Artists who participated in OFICIO: Zosen, Mina Hamada, Elian, Pedro Perelman, Pum Pum, Joao Lelo, Pesk, Martin Ferreyra, Mariano Antedoménico and Pixel Pancho.

 

 

Kris Kim. Aerosoul 16′. Washington, DC.

New Yorker Chris Kim takes a walking adventure to see what kind of wild and wooly art works are growing along the CSX railroad scene outside the DC area and he documented what he saw there with his camera. “I really enjoy the scenic walk in the woods with just a train track to help me not get lost.”

A home made video sure, and the up close captures of graffiti on a passing train can be taxing in the quick blur, but the videographer also does some playful cuts and overlays a large portion of the graffiti discovering with a soundtrack of apocalyptic dread. Enjoy with us the sounds of MF Doom featuring Charles Bukowski adding cheerful narrative interludes like, “there will be open and unpunished murder in the streets” and “radiated men will eat the flesh of radiated men” against a backdrop of random shots of railside graffiti.

Also, a surprise ending.

 

Bebo in Oaxaca

In the Mexican state of Oaxaca the experimental stencilist Bebo furtively sketches his strokes with an aerosol can through the hand cut cardboard to create his new mural for the second annual Stencil Festival there.

BSA Special Feature: 5 Minutes with Plotbot Ken via ARTE Creative

“I don’t want people to think my images are cool or beautiful. I want to encourage them to think,” says Plotbot Ken in this introduction to the German stencil artist and his work.

The darker themes of war and environmental poisoning occur often in his hand-cut aerosoled works on the street, as well as singular images that also evoke the ghosts inside industrial ruins made with brushes and pens. He says that his work processes the disasters we have created and continue to create because “Doomsday is already here.”

 

 

Aerosoul – NYC by Kris Kim

Queens is home to Kris Kim, who spends a lot of time BMX riding and sees a lot of graffiti and Street Art in his neighborhood. He just edited together a video that he shot this past winter and he really captures a sense of poetry and discovery in his own urban environs.  “Honestly I’m not a writer but it is something I have a lot of respect for – I get the whole outsider art aspect of it all and definitely enjoy it from a viewer’s perspective,” he tells us.

Nychos at The Ice House in Jersey City.

Nychos put a big heavy metal exclamation point on his New York invasion this summer by hopping the river into Jersey. For the Austrian muralist the experience is a fully immersive performance over a hot week while traffic backs up on its way into the tunnel leading to Manhattan, a gritty urban scene without redemption. His mixing of science and fantasy and dark drama is truer to life than the billboards that drivers run into along this route, and is delivered with total heart and mind engaged.

Shout out to the folks at Mana Contemporary and Jonathan Levine for making this possible.
