BSA Special Feature: RED VAPORZ – Russian Graffiti and Street Art

Russia has a growing Street Art and graffiti movement – in select cities, under certain circumstances. But it is ALIVE and these mostly young animated and excited artists are eager to take the scene in a new direction.

This brand new documentary travels and interviews a variety of artists working in the public realm today, brandishing cans and balancing instincts to do illegal work versus legal work – which makes it sound rather similar to other scenes around the world.

Yes, there appears to be political repression, and content needs to steer clear of political opinions, and in the end we are really just talking about a growing muralist movement. It is also interesting to see the various western influences as interpreted and filtered through local tastes, traditions, styles.  While hip-hop culture is likely to have been the lever in the 90s, the international Street Art aesthetic is here as well as the global branding of youth culture. Pre-Internet, they wouldn’t have known about us, and we wouldn’t have known about them. When it comes to grassroots movements fed by the open exchange of culture, does it increasingly appear that there is no “us and them’?

 

Last Breath III – Cambodia

The Last Breath initiative that installs art inside condemned architecture is taking a detour through Cambodia. Is this evidence of the strengthening of “spraycations” or interactive extreme art tourism? Let’s keep an eye on this.

Etnik and Millo at Memorie Urbane Festival 2014

Etnik and Millo at Memorie Urbane Festival 2014

Here are a handful of in-progress shots at Memorie Urbane 2014 featuring Etnik and Millo at work on their site-specific pieces. The festival appears to be a departure from standard “urban art” aerosol jams because of its sensitivity to the location and historical considerations in the siting of artists – which makes this more of an edifying mural program.

Etnik is an Italian/Swede artist who calls Italy home and began his outdoor art career with graffiti. Now he has moved from the letter forms associated with traditional graffiti style to an examination of geometric forms interacting in a multi-dimensional field.

Millo completed his massive wall mid April – a dream like system of symbols and icons; highways and cities and a sliced self portrait floating amidst and above it all. The Mesagne born native studied architecture and illustrates the innerworkings of his mind to “reveal the transience of human existence, suspended somewhere between what we know and what is hidden inside us,” he writes on his website.

Memorie Urbane Festival 2014 in Gaeta, Italy is in full swing. Begun principally as a way to promote tourism by David Rossillo, the mural festival is carefully curated to recognize the common history, traditions and the natural landscape of Gaeta and Terracina rather than simply promoting an international roster of Street Artists. Loosely translated as “urban memories” the site specific installations are meant to recall how the memory of a place is an essential starting point for what evolves from it; a dialogue between past and present, between art and public spaces.

Photographers Lorenzo Gallitto and Giorgio Base of Blind Eye Factory are documenting the works as they are going up and here share their photos with BSA readers for our global audience to enjoy.
