BSA Special Feature: Petro Wodkins makes Putin Sing and Explode: Sound Of Power

Showman, provocateur, and sometimes street interventionist Petro Wodkins periodically challenges political power with his strong handed and staged works that are, in turn, heavily marketed to the press and art media. Wodkins is not going for subtlety here in this high-rez commercial grade video production of Russian pop art – perhaps more of a mocking stunt than a detailed critique. But then we’re not Russians so we are sure we are missing many of the geo-political implications, but we do recognize marketing and this video leads directly to a product page, where you can purchase a bust of Putin with a speaker in his head: “The SOP bust is equipped with a high Quality Norwegian Driver, the FU10RB is an 4” full range driver offering distinct performance and sound clarity.”

Um, what?

 

PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls. Murals For Oceans 2015: Cozumel, Mexico.

It’s like Spring Break in Mexico with great murals, tattoos, beer and bikinis! What’s not to like? Also there is an connecting theme of saving the oceans and sealife. Actually this event invited forty international artists and assorted guests to come and paint and party and the people here appear to love it in this promotional video sponsored by clothing retailer The Seventh Letter. It’s PangeaSeed and like Pow! Wow! it is probably coming to a city near you!

OLEK Drops A Bomb In The Bottom Of The Ocean in Mexico

OLEK Drops A Bomb In The Bottom Of The Ocean in Mexico

As a rejoinder to our Film Friday post yesterday, today we take you into deep waters where OLEK has just crocheted a bomb or two.

If you think our land is being stripped of entire mountains and trees and our soil and drinking water is being poisoned by factory farming and fracking, consider that it is estimated that 100 million sharks are killed each year to create shark fin soup. They have been at the tops of the oceanic food chain for about 450 million years but we are on track to knock them out in the next 20.

Does that sound like an ecological ticking time bomb to you?

OLEK says she wants to “bring awareness to the state of the world’s oceans and promote the preservation of marine life.” With this new project she is definitely making waves.

In a new project with PangeaSeed and sculpture Jason DeCaires Taylor, the Brooklyn based street artist dove to the ocean floor off the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico to create these astounding, poetic, and inspiring underwater images. As she has done in other projects on land OLEK created costumery for friends and others to model, and these crocheted mermaids are the bomb. The yarn bomb.

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

Now screening :

  1. Sea Walls – Murals For Oceans. Isla Mujers, Mexic

  2. HERR BÜTTNER for Whale Rights in Penang, Malaysia

  3. “90 Percent” from Save Our Seas Foundation

BSA Special Feature: Sea Walls – Murals For Oceans

Isla Mujers in Mexico provides a gorgeous venue for these street artists to come and paint. If you didn’t get to go on vacation this year, now is your chance, if only vicariously, to be on spraycation with this talented crew.

“Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a ground-breaking street art project created by PangeaSeed to bring the beauty and the plight of the world’s oceans into streets around the globe. By collaborating with internationally renowned artists, we create large-scale murals that focus attention on pressing environmental issues the oceans are facing.”

 

Street Artist HERR BÜTTNER in Penang, Malaysia

It doesn’t get more D.I.Y. than this home made video showing the process of making and wheat-pasting various oceanic life onto the streets in Penang. HERR BUETTNER, who calls himself an “offshore warrior for fish and whale rights all over the world.”

As a side note, the drawings upon which he makes his sea creatures are notices of death from a Chinese newspaper, drawing a direct connection to the death of sealife.

“90 Percent” from Save Our Seas Foundation

Life began in the ocean. Now 90 percent of the big fish, including sharks and rays, are gone. Find out more about the threats facing our oceans and what you can do to help at saveourseas.com
