Mural Montreal Festival: Day 4

Mural Montreal Festival: Day 4

Our final posting from Montreal’s MURAL festival gives you a sense of the the size, variety, and quality of the expanse of works on display over four days. With any luck, most of these will be up much longer.

If you are ever planning one of these ginormous parties of painting here’s a little advice: don’t plan to shoot photos of all of them during the actual festival because little things like rainstorms, supply shortages, surprising technical challenges, and artists fatigue will undoubtedly slow the progress.

Also raging parties and sudden love interests pull many a wayward heart away from the work to be done, and sometimes a parade of looky-loo new fans will ask 1,001 questions while craning their eyes up to you on the scissor lift. One or more of these eventualities always happens, nothing to be done about it.

“Some walls aren’t finished so I’ll try and get them tomorrow,” says photographer Daniel Esteban Rojas, who has been sharing these great images with BSA readers. Don’t sweat it Daniel, we understand, and these images are worth the wait!

MURAL Montreal Festival: Day 1 and 2

Brooklyn-Street-Art-740_Mural-2014-Montreal-

BSA is pleased to partner again with the MURAL Festival in Montreal to bring you images as the events unfold.  Daniel Esteban Rojas tells us it has been a slower than usual commencement this year, due to Mother Nature, “We’ve had a huge rain storm and most artists couldn’t start.”

On the plus side, no one got a sunburn, they have four days to finish the 20 or so planned murals. The artists of course couldn’t wait to get busy on these huge, fresh walls – all calling their names like a siren song, and they got a lot accomplished despite the weather, and the DJs kept playing. Today the skies looks good for the all day block party.

Here we have some detail shots, progress shots and action shots and as the festival progresses we’ll bring you the completed walls for your viewing pleasure…

Brooklyn-Street-Art-KATSU-Drone-painting-Screen-Shot-2014-05-16-at-12.08

BSA-Video-Friday3-Jan2014-b

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

Now screening :

1. KATSU’s Drone Painting
2. Brandalism 2014
3. Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2014
4. Mural Festival 2014. (teaser for Montreal)
5. Herakut: Colors of Resilience

BSA Special Feature: KATSU’s Drone Painting

Bombing, spying, delivering Amazon packages. Gosh, what CAN’T you do with a drone? With an ominous soundtrack peppered with occasional blips and lots of, uh, droning, this video appears to show Katsu in a white hazmat suit diving and bobbing while driving his remote control spraying device.

Aside from the novelty and associated cool factor, it appears that the contraption may be even more unwieldy than a fire extinguisher – something Katsu knows something about. It’s all a big experiment at this point, something that happens often with art on the street, but only occasionally are the changes fueled by new technology.

Who knows what the practical applications will be for this technique of painting? Actually we all will eventually.

BRANDALISM 2014

It all looks so clean and efficient, this culture-jamming / media-jamming that just took place in Europe. Now apparently christened brandalism, this hi-jack of the ad message continues to gather fans an practitioners as people question both the message and messenger in public space.

This very large scale project replaced hundreds of paid advertisements with art, and probably some subvertising as well. The soundtrack makes it all seem sort of breezy.

POW! WOW! HAWAII 2014…

Yes, we know they are sneaking those Red Bull ads into this video – it’s called sponsored content and marketing industry reports say that ya’ll don’t mind. And why would you mind when the walls and scenery in Hawaii are so gorgeous?

Also, dang but what about all these wide hovering camera shots courtesy of ……wait for it………drones.  (See first video up top).

So Pow! Wow! Hawaii! is wrapped for this year — Now prepare ourselves for Pow! Pow! TAIWAN!, just announced.

BTW, this jingle will make you tingle – like black pepper ice cream.

Mural Festival 2014. Teaser

Meanwhile, north of the US border, Montreal is preparing for another go at MURAL, with mostly French and Canadian street artists and an attached series of cultural activities. See the lineup near the end of the video.

 

Herakut: Colors of Resilience

In solidarity with the March 15, 2011 Syrian uprising, the resulting deaths and refugees, Street Artists Herakut created this video and this project. Well done.

“Street art by Herakut as part of a an AptART project with children in the Syrian Refugee Camp Zaatari and children in North Jordan, in partnership with ACTED, supported by ECHO and UNICEF. March 2014.

Videography by MESSRS., Film Concept and Edit by HERAKUT, Music by Marbert Rocel.
