Our weekly focus on the moving image and art in the streets. And other oddities.

Now screening:
1. José Parlá: Nature Of Language
2. Eno and Shida in New Zealand
3. The Hours present “Neon Golden” in Hong Kong
4. Element Tree / Art Primo: For The City By The City

BSA Special Feature:
José Parlá: Nature Of Language

A great new video of José Parlá as he creates a site-specific mural for a modern library in North Carolina. You can get a real sense of the gestural mark making process as well as his thoughts and intentions while building this wall full of character.

Here is a brief description directly from the artist “Although illegible at first sight, the juxtaposed characters, gestures, hieroglyphs, and words become readable through feeling, as it is my hope that the work evokes the language of your own inner voice – of your own history. In an era when technology is taking over as the driving force of communication, art reminds us of our roots and our need for face-to-face communication. This Nature is our mirror, as art allows this bridge to be possible through the language of calligraphy, I pay homage to this Nature and the history of languages, which are the mirrors of our present condition.”

Eno and Shida in New Zealand

Using only rollers and brushes these two fellas from the north island of New Zealand show off a quick collection of their recent murals together behind a soundtrack by Whanganui local music celeb Jack Michell-Anyon. Choice, bro!

The Hours present “Neon Golden” in Hong Kong

An unusual visitors diary of a group trip to Hong Kong, via the streets and the tunnels and the gallery. In September the Australian based creative group The Hours had a show at Above Second Gallery in Hong Kong’s Central and Western District entitled ‘Neon Golden’. With peeps from graffiti, street art, and the contemporary art world, the video shows a coalescing of interests and skills and a few thrill-seeking scenes like being suspended from the roof and relying on a harness to paint. Aside from the painting scenes the video provides an open window into modern day Hong Kong – full of cranes and high rises and traffic and character.

From the Vimeo page, the artists included are Fintan Magee, Shida, Rone, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Beastman, Yok, Sheryo, Numskull, Vans The Omega, Roach, Phibs, Twoone, Jumbo and Thomas Jackson.

Our weekly focus on the moving image and art in the streets. And other oddities.

Now screening: Hot Tea “Rituals”, Gabriel Specter: “Structures” in Rome, Faith47, Omen, Ricardo Cavolo and Jasper Wong in Montreal, TOUR 13 in Paris, and Then One “Yard Work”.

BSA Special Feature: Hot Tea “Rituals”

In his second attempt at installing on the walkway leading up the Williamsburg Bridge, Street Artist Hot Tea and a few dedicated friends installed a high impact piece that redrew the public space. If you happened upon it, you were surprised by its simplicity and effectiveness. If you examined it, you realized the time and effort it took. This new video helps to appreciate the latter.

Specter Goes Geometric in Rome

Gabriel Specter just finished this monochromatic geometric piece under an overpass in Rome – working with the Blind Eye Factory. Where is that chalk snap line doohickey?  I just had it here. I hope I didn’t throw it away with my lunch bag and half eaten sandwich….

Faith47, Omen, Ricardo Cavolo and Jasper Wong in Montreal

In a promotional program for a luxury real estate complex of penthouses and townhouses, Street Artists Faith 47, Omen, Ricardo Cavolo and Jasper Wong each did murals in downtown Montreal recently.

TOUR 13 in Paris

You will be hearing a lot more about this project that has just opened in Paris. Graffiti and Street Artists and just plain artists have been taking over abandoned or soon to be destroyed real estate for decades, and this is the newest example of a semi-curated show within one. It is great to see the range of talent and new directions that a project like this can take, and to see a centralized location for fans to visit – before it is all destroyed.

Then One “Yard Work”

A nicely paced piece by Then One is captured here and edited By SERRINGE. Watching this intimate relationship of the artist to the wall and thinking about fall – not too hot, air a little crisp; You might expect to see Then One collapse into a pile of leaves.

Voice of Art – Migration is Beautiful

“Art has the power to shape our laws, change society, and to speak truth to power, “ says Favianna Rodriguez in this new documentary that quickly traces the relationship between immigration law and greed and what is effectively a new system of slavery. In an upbeat way. HOW does she do it?

WK Interact: Project Brave

“A way of giving back to the city,” is how Street Artist WK Interact talks about the inception and development of “Project Brave” – an incredible distillation of the chaos of the events in New York on September 11, 2001.

Kyle Hughes-Odgers: “We Will Know When We Are Home”

A visually rich video showing the Street Artist Creepy as he wanders Port Hedlund Australia through fields and weathered abandoned industrial carcasses in search of surfaces.

Turner Galleries Present: Kyle Hughes-Odgers “A thousand lights from a hundred skies” (Northbridge, West Australia)

‘A THOUSAND LIGHTS FROM A HUNDRED SKIES’
OPENS 6PM 8 FEBRUARY – 9 MARCH 2013
TURNER GALLERIES
470 WILLIAM STREET, NORTHBRIDGE WA 6003

Kyle Hughes-Odgers is better known in Perth as Creepy, the popular street artist, renowned for his large scale murals and wall paintings.

These adorn the walls of the Norfolk Basement, the Condor Tower Carpark, the Northbridge Western Power building, Bar 399, and Juicebox Creative. His most recent commission is a whopping 40m, 7 panel mural for Murdoch University. You’ve probably also recently seen his work on the wooden hoardings surrounding new developments on William Street in Northbridge, and around the city in laneways, music festivals and on forgotten walls. His street work is not confined to Perth, he was very happy to discover that some street art he did in New York had been selected for Street Art New York, published by Prestel (Random House) in April 2010. Other travels and interactions with city walls include London, Barcelona, Berlin, Sydney and Melbourne.

Giants Fans in Manhattan Streets (VIDEO) Weeeeeeeee are the CHAMPEEEEENSSSS

Streets in Manhattan were bloated with about a million crazy football fans this week as the Superbowl-winning New York Giants had a parade and almost everybody skipped school and work to go see their heroes. Office workers literally dumped garbage cans of shredded paper out the window en masse while fans poured into the city from every direction, including nearby states, to roar as the players rode by. Some people were well behaved, but they were hard to see or hear because of all the hooligans raising holy hell. Here’s a video taste of it –  some seriously funny sh*t. Watch out for unbridled testosterone fueled aggression, swear words and Giants inspired freestylin. NSFW, but okay for the street.
