Opiemme Paints a “Black Hole Sun” with Lyrics for Chris Cornell

Opiemme Paints a “Black Hole Sun” with Lyrics for Chris Cornell

A tribute to singer Chris Cornell today from Street Artists and calligramist Opiemme.

Entitled “Black Hole Sun”, the lyrics of the Soundgarden song were stuck in the mind of the artist since Cornell passed in May.

The monochrome layout of text appears on a wall for Urban Forms Foundation in Łódź, Poland and the artist says it is meant to evoke the stillness of the universe, a giant object appearing static because of its vast dimensions.

“The human-size mural is a freestyle painting,” Opiemme tells us, “and its composition is based on the repetitive rhythm of the elements in the white boxes. These elements, when viewed from left to right, produce the illusion of a slowly growing movement of the subject, similar as it is to the perceived movement in single film frames or slow motion footage.”

“In my eyes, indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
The sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat, summer stench
‘Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I’ll hear you scream again

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (won’t you come)”

Mona Tusz Creates New Relief in Lodz, Poland

Mona Tusz Creates New Relief in Lodz, Poland

Artist Mona Tusz creates a relief mural in Lodz, Poland using stained glass, wood, metal, and custom illumination in her latest esoteric journey of spirit and emotion for this latest creation for UNIQA Art Lodz.

The public art program has been looking for alternatives to the classically painted mural and encouraging artists to experiment with techniques and materials and Tusz’ new work evokes a weightlessness in her new look into a tale told across a submerged and twinkling marine atmospheric.

Here the graduate of the Katowice Academy of Fine Arts takes advantage of a low wide wall to breathe space between floating elements that she hand painted in great detail. Incorporating lighting that is specific to the piece on Gdańska 132 st, night time evokes a celestial and quietly gleaming scene while the stained glass and varied 3 dimensional elements cast shadows and change hue throughout the day movement of the sun across this southern-facing wall.

“The art of Mona in general is characterized by extremely detailed, painted texture, which is barely visible on the photos,” says Michał Bieżyński, Art Director of UNIQA Art Lodz project, but you can see the fine brushwork on the characters if you look closely. All tolled the unique relief approach takes her work in a new direction and lifts the sky toward you.

BSA Special Feature: Labrona Unveiled

Not exactly overlooked but perhaps under-sung, the work of freight train-writer/figurative painter Labrona has appeared on BSA since our beginning and for the first time you have an opportunity to see the artist and hear his voice. Up until now he has preferred to be remain somewhat anonymous individually but is pulling back the curtain in his unassuming way.

See and hear him describe his sort of organic progression from the illegal walls on street to the to legal murals and gallery canvasses. You do not get the sense that Labrona has been in it for fame, rather the love of art and his own studies of art history.

Opiemme: Lodz Of Eggs

The Italian artist Opiemme realized a site specific project for Urban Forms Foundation recently in Lodz with a collective performance involving community members throwing paint filled eggs.

It is rather difficult to understand what it all means, or how it is related to the astrological sign Taurus, or even if the participants had a clear idea what the bigger story was. But it looks like a fun interactive event for people to engage with art.

 

Resoborg “Love Imvelo” in South Africa

Wesley van Eeden aka Resoborg was in South Africa recently painting a mural for a lifestyle brand of clothing. He says that “Love Imvelo” is influenced by the Zulu word for the environment and he was to encourage our love for it.

“UNIQA” Public Sculpture Project Begins in Łódź with “LUMP”

“UNIQA” Public Sculpture Project Begins in Łódź with “LUMP”

One of the most successful mural festivals in Europe is shifting the focus to the sculptural, considering seriously the public interaction with objects in the 3rd dimension.

LUMP for  UNIQA Art Łódź Project. Łódź, Poland. August 2016. (photo © Michał Bieżyński)

6 years of Łódź Murals is now giving way to the UNIQA Art Łódź Project and, by years end. 6 new artists will be installing temporary and permanent sculptures, bas-reliefs, installations, and site-specific realizations in this Polish city of 722,000.

Today we have the first series of installations that reclaim public advertising columns as oversize kitchen objects commonly found in Poland during the 1950s-1980s, when this country was called The Polish People’s Republic.

LUMP for  UNIQA Art Łódź Project. Łódź, Poland. August 2016. (photo © Michał Bieżyński)

A subtle ode to a period that the new generation of Millenials will not be familiar, the “Kingsize” project by the artist named LUMP recreates a coffee machine, vacuum flask, pepper shaker, jub, washing machine, and seltzer bottle that all would have been common in homes during those decades.

The three month installation along Piotrkowska Street by the Szczecin-based artist are meant to revive a sort of common memory, if not a longing for an earlier time – or maybe just to remind you of Grandma’s kitchen.

“ Łódź’s murals are famous all over the world and have become major icons of the city,” UNIQA director Michał Bieżyński, as he explains his new vision for these new artworks in the city that people can view from a different perspective.

“Diverse materials and technologies will be employed to make the project as varied as possible. It is essential that residents be presented with the broadest possible range of graphic solutions so that the project, beside the purely artistic format, will offer some visual education.”

 A Mexican Mural ‘Manifesto,’ Blackened Flags And Censorship (March 04 2015)

“Striking and massive murals by international street artists have been populating the walls of Mexico City for the last five years thanks to the emergence of a global Street Art scene, a rise in mural festivals, and the country’s tradition of institutional support for murals that further a socio-political mission. There hasn’t been much of the latter lately, however, and it is doubtful that a new politically charged mural campaign underway in certain central neighborhoods is likely to receive tax dollars for the paint and ladders.

Without sighting a specific ill to address, the new mural initiative named “Manifesto” is challenging a select group of local and international street artists to express their opinions on weighty and topical matters through murals, “using art as a social tool to propose, reflect and inform.” Among possible topics that might be addressed, the manifesto for “Manifesto” says, are increasing poverty, glorified materialism, the exhausting of natural resources, a fraying social web, and a dysfunctional justice system.”

Malik and ‘Note’ Bring 17 Street Artists To A Swiss Prison (November 04, 2015)

“Initiated by Aarau-based graffiti/street/fine artist Malik in May of 2012, the project eventually corralled 17 street artists, all but one from Switzerland, to enter the confines of the new high security Lenzburg Prison to paint murals on exterior walls, courtyards, hallways, and common areas.

‘I was looking for a new challenge and a new and exciting project where I could show my art,’ says Malik and while the 18 month project originated with his vision of getting a nice wall for himself, quickly the project grew far beyond his expectations to become an educational, sociological meditation on the penal system, the appropriate role of art within it, and our collective humanity.”

“Instead of being hunted down for catching a tag or bubble-lettered throw-up, a couple dozen graffiti/street art painters are invited to hit up Coney Island this summer — and since we’ve just marked the unofficial first weekend of summer in New York — we’re bringing you the first three freshly completed pieces.

Part of “Coney Art Walls”, the muralists began taking the train out to this seaside paved paradise that is re-inventing itself once again, this time courtesy of art curator Jeffrey Deitch.”

50 Years From Selma, Jetsonorama and Equality in Brooklyn  (June 27, 2015)

“From Selma to Ferguson, Birmingham to Charleston, Jimmie Lee Jackson to Michael Brown, Street Artist Jetsonorama is crossing the country from Arizona to New York and a half-century of America’s struggle with our legacy of racism and injustice.

As marches have continued across the country in cities like Ferguson, Oakland, Baltimore, New York, Dallas and Cleveland in the past year addressing issues such as police brutality and racism, the south is taking down confederate flags on state houses and the US is mourning another mass shooting.

Now as Americans everywhere are pulling out and waving the stars and stripes to celebrate freedom, this new powerful installation on a Brooklyn wall reminds us of what New York poet Emma Lazarus said, ‘Until we are all free, we are none of us free.’ ”

” ‘It felt like I gave a birth to an oversize baby without any pain killers. I had to pull the black magic to make it happen. Physically and emotionally drained. Was it worth it? Absolutely YES,’ she types onto her Facebook page to let friends and fans know that she has finished the seven-day marathon of crocheting and directing a full team of volunteers and St+Art Delhi organizers. Triumphant, she stands atop the woman’s shelter, a one story structure of corrugated metal and concrete 40-feet long and 8-feet high, with a fist in the air, a symbol of celebration as well as a show of solidarity with the sisterhood of those who helped her make it and those will seek refuge here when other options have been exhausted.”

A Tidal Wave of Lodz Reborn: ‘Lodz Murals’ Distinguishes a Polish City (October 28, 2015)

“Now I don’t want to create any new festival, any new brand — just want to keep the name as simple as possible,” he says of Lodz Murals, an ongoing program that functions year round rather than focusing specifically on a short-term festival. With all responsibilities for organizing, promoting, and working with city and private business under one roof, Michał says that his vision is to create the same sort of iconic image of Lodz with murals as Paris with the Eiffel Tower.

“I would like that people on the global scale would think of Lodz as a city with exceptional public art,” he says grandly while acknowledging that public art shines in many other cities as well. “When you are thinking about public art, one of the first places that you will see in your mind’s eye is Lodz. Of course, comparing the mural project to the one of the most important “pearls” of modern architecture is pure overstatement, but I would like to create this type of mechanism, this type of association.”

WALL\THERAPY 2015: Surrealism and the Fantastic (July 29, 2015)

“We don’t know for sure if it was our current funhouse mirror atmosphere that drove the Wall\Therapy festival in Rochester, NY to choose this years’ themes. It may simply be a way of organizing artists whose work reflects these notions back to us and to illuminate one specific growing trend in street culture and murals.

Surely Magritte, Dali and Ernst would be very pleased by the uptick of modern surrealists and practitioners of the bizarre, fantastical, and dream-like in galleries, in the public sphere, and throughout popular culture in recent years.”

NUART 2015 Roundup: A Laboratory on the Street (September 12, 2015)

Ella & Pitr (photo © Jaime Rojo)

“As we mark the halfway point of this decade and see the institutional discussions of Street Art taking form while academics try to place it in the canon of art-making and decide upon the nature of its impact, they do it with the knowledge that gallery shows, museum exhibitions, high-profile auctions, individual collecting, lifestyle marketers, and public festivals of many configurations and aspirations are already embracing its relevance. No one can possibly gauge this story in all of its complexity but some will capture its spirit. Being on the street helps.

One way to get a pulse on the present is to attend shows like Nuart and witness the diverse stratagems that artists are using to engage their audiences and judge if they are successful at realizing their intentions. With a deliberately mixed bag of thinkers, feelers, documentors, aesthetes, and pranksters culled together for your edification, this show stokes the discussions.”

The gates are open to the new public/private art project called “Coney Art Walls,” and today, you can have a look at all 30 or so of the new pieces by a respectable range of artists spanning four decades and a helluva lot of New York street culture history. We’ve been lucky to see a lot of the action as it happened over the last five weeks and the range is impressive. These are not casual, incidental choices of players lacking serious resumes or street/gallery cred, but the average observer or unknowing critic may not recognize it.”

“Barcelona was known as a city at the epicenter of a bustling lively organic street art scene in the mid 2000s. Today that has greatly been cracked down upon by authorities, but the Spanish city now boasts a mural festival called Open Walls, which celebrated its third edition last month with public works spanning a great number of influences and styles. Of course there is still plenty of autonomous, non-comissioned street art to be seen as well.”

Basquiat’s Rarely Seen Notebooks Open At The Brooklyn Museum (April 01, 2015)

Basquiat (photo © Jaime Rojo)

In ‘Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks,’ now running at the Brooklyn Museum until August 23, the genius of his fragmenting logic is revealed as a direct relationship between his private journals and his prolific and personally published aerosol missives on the streets of Manhattan’s Soho and Lower East Side neighborhoods in the late 1970s and 1980s.

These notebooks were for capturing ideas and concepts, preparing them, transmuting them, revising them, pounding them into refrains. In the same way his text (and glyphic) pieces on the street were not necessarily finished products each time; imparted on the run and often in haste, these unpolished missives didn’t require such preciousness.”

“This is No Limit, the second installation of murals done primarily by street artists in Borås, a pristine and pleasant city about 45 minutes east of Gothenberg. With the leadership of artist Shai Dahan and organizers Stina Hallhagen and Anders Khil the local tourism office works year round to promote this festival and the quality of the pieces are top notch due to the careful choices of international big names and up-and-comers.

In addition to this diversity, the scale is varied with massive walls like those by the Chilean Inti and Poland’s Robert Proch, and more personal-sized installations in surprise locations around town by American illustration artist David Zinn and New Jersey’s sculptural stencilist Joe Iurato.”

It could be the name influencing our perception, but in one way or another it looks like these artists are chosen for their down-to-earth hand hewn approach. Sometimes decorative, sometimes storytelling, there are familiar themes and motifs that play well to their local audience as well as the virtual gawker.

Even with two dozen artists, it isn’t bloated: no logos or product tie-ins or DJs or high flying scissor lifts scaling massive multi-story walls with abstract surrealism, hyper photo-realism or dark pop human/animal/robot hybrids here – yet. Well, we take that back on the surrealism score; Pixel Pancho is here with a brood of chickens bobbing their industrial mesh necks atop fired tile bodices, hunting and pecking their way toward the beach, and Miami artist duo 2alas & Hox created a portrait of a boy with a partial mask overlay that calls to mind cyborgs (and Sten & Lex). But here in the loungey bare-foot tropical DR coastal area, even Pixel Pancho mutes the hues toward sun-bleached pastels, more easily complimenting their surroundings.”

And so it made sense last week when Dippie skillfully merged imagery spanning five centuries, two continents, and two distinctly different art movements. Call it a measured miracle, a ratherish revelation that Dippie completed a deftly realized mashup of Raphael and Keith Haring, with the Madonna del Granduca holding Haring’s icon-symbol that is variously referred to as ‘Radiant Baby,’ ‘Radiant Child,’ and ‘Radiant Christ.’ ”

“French Street Artist YZ Yseult has begun her own campaign to pay tribute to the fierce female fighters of the 19th Century West African country of Dahomey, who are more commonly referred to as Amazons. A startling narrative of female power not often heard today for some, but as YZ is researching her own history as a descendent from slaves, her portraits reflect a personal impetus to tell these stories with a new force. She has named this series of strong warriors on the street ‘Amazone’.”

1300 Metal Bars in Lodz: Cekas Creates Sculptural “Silence” on a Wall

1300 Metal Bars in Lodz: Cekas Creates Sculptural “Silence” on a Wall

The mercurial role of light and shadow continually vex the Street Artist as no two days are the same, sometimes no two hours. If you are a photographer or a fan, your experience of the work outside will be subject to weather, lighting, and wiseguys who want to buff or diss someones work. These elements are part of the game and you might as well get used to it.

This fall in Lodz, Poland the urban art organizer Michal Biezynski chose the Wroclaw-based artists Cekas (Lukasz Berger) to more fully play with the elements with his sculptural installation of 1300 metal bars protruding at different lengths perpendicular to a wall.

“The installation is permanent and it’s playing with the light and the sunbeams,” Biezynski tells us, “The everyday cycle of the sun creates a dynamic character and the “drawings” made of the shadows are directly related to the time of the day and the season of the year. Apart from that, the installation also works at night with the light of the moon.”

A graduate of the Sculpture Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Cekas favors experimentation – something not uncommon in graffiti, Street Art, and mural-making. As he watches the sun trace across the sky overhead and sees the configuration of the shadows produce new forms and patterning, he talks about the meaning of “Silence,” the name of the installation.

“The installation is an answer to the communication between the modern man and the reality around him,” he says, explaining that our individual an cumulative actions are “producing noise, which at times may seem inaudible, but it is still present.” So each one of those small metal bars (which cumulatively weigh more than 500 kg) is a contributor to a collective sound – in this case a sort of visual noise, if you will.

Michal says “Silence” (spelled in the Polish “Cisza”) is a great departure from the mural program he has fostered over the last few years that has drawn nearly 50 artists to walls around the city, and it has piqued his interest in what else may be possible when programming art for the public sphere. “I would like to implement new things in Lodz’s urban tissue – modern sculptures and installations. What’s more, in the framework of my work in Lodz Event Centre, I want to renounce the festival form – I want to convert it more into an all year round public art program.” That’s the sound of someone thinking for new ways for art to engage the public; another curious evolution of the Lodz festival that grew from graffiti and Street Art, casting his goals in a different light.

Velvet and Zoer Bring Tokyo Amusement to Lodz

Velvet and Zoer Bring Tokyo Amusement to Lodz

A sepia toned carrousel illusion is painted with acrylic with a band of Tokyo signage intruding across the top. If you happen to divine meaning from or read something into this new composition on a wall for Lodz Murals, you may be reacting to the CSX crew’s experience and love for  graffiti, design, and urbanism. Enlarging a seemingly random moment of the city experience, this one is lifted directly from a Tokyo amusement park. Inspired by their GEISAI show this spring and their interactions with curator Takashi Murakami 村上隆 while there, it is possible that Tokyo has left them feeling a little psychedelic about our built environment.

brooklyn-street-art-Zoer-Velvet-lodz-murals-poland-11-2015-web-1

Zoer and Velvet. Lodz Murals 2015. Lodz, Poland. (photo courtesy of Lodz Murals)

The long time friends and collaborators Velvet and Zoer are reflecting the urban experience as frozen moments, elevating what may be considered mundanity to be reconsidered as possibly poetry through a cracked mirror or camera lens. But to be clear, “This mural doesn’t talk about Cop 21 nor about Paris attacks,” says Zoer. As Frenchman, you can see how their fans could be pre-disposed to interpreting anything they do as possible commentary on two events that people associate with Paris at the moment.

“The Japanese typography on the top of the piece is taken from an advertisement for the 40th anniversary of the invention of Walkman in Japan,” says Lodz Murals Michał Bieżyński, “I guess that everybody could tell their own story and should interpret it in their own way. I really like the piece because it’s not something obvious, not something easy to recognize. I hope that at least part of the audience will stop and think, ‘Hey, what’s going on here?’ ”

A Tidal Wave of Lodz Reborn: “Lodz Murals” Distinguishes Polish City

A Tidal Wave of Lodz Reborn: “Lodz Murals” Distinguishes Polish City

New work from DalEast, Borondo, Alexis Diaz

“My aim is to create a permanent exhibition of great art in the public space of Lodz,” says Michał Bieżyński, founder of Lodz Murals in the Polish city of the same name. It is highly likely he will after six years curating Galeria Urban Forms, for which BSA has been a media partner. Since 2009 Bieżyński has been selecting and organizing artists from around the world to create almost 45 murals throughout the city for permanent exhibition by people like Os Gemeos, Aryz, Roa, Vhils, M-City, Etam Cru, Inti, Remed, Daleast, Sat One, Kenor, 3ttman, and Nunca to mention just a few.

“Now I don’t want to create any new festival, any new brand – just want to keep the name as simple as possible,” he says of Lodz Murals, an ongoing program that functions year round rather than focusing specifically on a short-term festival. With all responsibilities for organizing, promoting, and working with city and private business under one roof, Michał says that his vision is to create the same sort of iconic image of Lodz with murals as Paris with the Eiffel Tower.

“I would like that people on the global scale would think of Lodz as a city with exceptional public art,” he says grandly while acknowledging that public art shines in many other cities as well. “When you are thinking about public art, one of the first places that you will see in your mind’s eye is Lodz. Of course, comparing the mural project to the one of the most important “pearls” of modern architecture is pure overstatement, but I would like to create this type of mechanism, this type of association.”

And he is well on his way with nearly year-round tours of the city’s existing murals by various organizations and more artists currently painting and en route. Is he still committed to inviting top talent artists to Lodz regardless of their fame?

“Yes of course, for me the quality of art is the most important,” he says. “Last year I invited Morik, a great artist from Russia and he was not that famous. His art is just really high-quality, it is as simple as that.” He is thinking in terms of programs – experimental and classical among the themes.

“This year we are doing an amazing project with Cekas – the sculptor from Wroclaw, Poland. He will install almost 1500 metal pieces to the surface of the wall, creating a permanent installation that will work with the sun and it will change depending on the angle of the sunbeams. It’s still something on the wall, but it’s a step forward.”

In the mean time he is in the middle of more pieces and artists and walls that he hopes will become iconic in a Lodz sort of way. “I’ve got the plan, I’ve started to talk with some artists, I’m trying to do my best. Now, we’ve just finished the piece with Daleast (China), Alexis Diaz (Puerto Rico) and Borondo (Spain). I’m waiting for Cekas and Agostino Iacurci (Italy) and I’m focused to organize the pieces with them.”

Social Isolation, Isaac Cordal, and Neighbors (Sasiedzi) in Łódź

Social Isolation, Isaac Cordal, and Neighbors (Sasiedzi) in Łódź

Brussels-based Spanish sculptor and street artist / public artist Isaac Cordal has just completed another poignant installation that speaks volumes to viewers, if they look up from their phones as they walk past.

His sad little men are customarily detached from a sense of hope, now stranded out on verandas that are attached to a bland, beige stucco wall. Many are mounted together at once, yet the effect is one of isolation, individuals banished to a vast disconnect.

“SĄSIEDZI” means “neighbors” in Polish, a name he chose for this installation for the, Łódź 4 Culture Festival in June. “Many years ago, I imagined a party full of people, where no one communicated with each other,” Isaac says as he relates that dream to the very genuine experience of riding a train today, or taking an elevator, or, yes, going to a party.

Those small niceties that strangers once exchanged in hallways or at the doctors office or at bus stops now evaporated – first by the Millenials who proudly taught everyone how to not make eye contact or say hello and to simply pound on keypads with thumbs, now it is a behavior embraced by all other age groups in every imaginable setting.

Do you know any of your neighbors? Why bother? Suurreeously. Like, why?

Cordal says his new installation isn’t just about our broken social fabric or our relationships with people – it is also about its additional extended impact; like disconnecting from daily physical life as if it pales in comparison to the digital experience.

“The installation is a reflection on our relationship with the outdoors due to the use of new technologies,’ he says. “The new modern outdoors is linked more with virtual spaces than with their physical counterparts. Never before have we been so connected yet at the same time been so isolated.”

Totes babe, BRB.

BSA’s Piece on “Submerged Motherlands” Acclaimed for Year

BSA’s Piece on “Submerged Motherlands” Acclaimed for Year

BSA with Swoon at Brooklyn Museum Sited by Huff Post Editors as Proud Moment of 2014

We’re very pleased and thankful to be included in this short list chosen by the editors of Huffington Post Arts & Culture as a story they are most proud of publishing last year.

In her introduction to the list, editor Katherine Brooks writes:

“It turns out, 365 days is hard to summarize in anything but a laundry list of seemingly disparate phenomena, filled with the good — woman-centric street art, rising Detroit art scenes, spotlights on unseen American art– and the bad less than good — holiday butt plugs, punching bags by Monet, Koonsmania. But, as a New Year dawns, we found ourselves just wanting to focus on the things that made us beam with pride in 2014. So we made a list of those things, a list of the pieces we’re proud of.”

Brooklyn-Street-Art-740-Huffpost-Swoon-Most-Proud-2014-Screen-Shot-2015-01-03-at-12.53

Describing why we thought this was an important story for us we wrote:

“We loved a lot of stories this year, but this hometown Brooklyn one about a street artist with humanity mounting her first solo major museum exhibition was a special turning point — and an astounding success. For us street art is a conversation, a continuum of expression, and Swoon is always a part of it. From following her street career to her transition to international fame to witnessing this exhibition coming to fruition in person in the months leading up to the Brooklyn Museum show, it is easy to understand why Swoon still remains a crucial part of the amazing street art scene and continues to set a standard.”

-Jaime Rojo & Steven Harrington, HuffPost Arts&Culture bloggers and co-founders of Brooklyn Street Art

In fact, we wrote 48 articles that were published on the Huffington Post in 2014, and as a collection we hope they further elucidate the vast and meaningful impact that the Street Art / graffiti / urban art movement continues to have on our culture, our public space, and our arts institutions.

Together that collection of articles published by BSA on Huffpost in ’14 spanned the globe including stories from Malaysia, Poland, Spain, France, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, New York, Arizona, The Navajo Nation, Philadelphia, Sweden, Istanbul, New Jersey, Lisbon, The Gambia, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Rome, India, Italy, Delhi (India), Montreal, San Francisco, London, Coachella, Chicago, Kabul (Afghanistan), and Kiev (Ukraine).

Here on BSA we published another 320 postings (more or less).

We thank you for allowing us to share these inspirational and educational stories with you and we are honored to be able to continue the conversation with artists, art fans, collectors, curators, academics, gallerists, museums, and arts institutions. Our passion for Street Art and related movements is only superceded by our love for the creative spirit, and we are happy whenever we encounter it.

Marek-Szymańsk
Łódź, Poland has metamorphosed in the last couple of years to become a destination for large scale murals of high quality by some of the best names on (what has become) an international circuit of Street Art festivals. Today we ask a talented photographer from Łódź, Marek Szymanski, to share his favorite image from the many he shot this year at Urban Forms. Marek chose this piece by DALeast (born in China, lives in Capetown) to share with BSA readers, and gives an idea of what he was thinking when framing the shot.

“A deer in the city, on the empty, concrete wall, it seems to miss it’s natural surrounding, in which it at its best. That’s why I chose to hide the deer in the branches, which give the impression of the forest, creating a place where the animal can hide and feel safety in a more natural environment”.

” Jeleniowi w mieście, na pustej betonowej, surowej ścianie, wydaje się brakować jego naturalnego środowiska, w którym prezentuje się najlepiej. Stąd próba schowania go w gałęziach drzewa, które dają poczucie lasu, które tworzą miejsce w którym zwierze może się schować, w którym czuje się bezpiecznie, tworząc atmosferę naturalności”

~ Marek Szymanski

5 Styles Meet On a 30 Meter Diptych in Łódź, Poland

5 Styles Meet On a 30 Meter Diptych in Łódź, Poland

Brooklyn-Street-Art-2014-Urban-Forms-Banner-7401

Graffitti artists like to talk about styles of their letter-based art form as if they contain individual DNA from the clans that the particular aesthetic, era or technique of rendering originated from. Whether its bubble, old school, wild style, abstract, hardcore, or any number of subgenres, when graff heads get together for one big painting fest the sessions are sometimes referred to as a meeting of styles to denote the differentiation that is evident to insiders and to give the event an air of diplomacy and cross-cultural cooperation on par with the annual G20 meetings.

While many pieces are completed next to one another on a wall, less often will you see a true melding of styles — two or more distinct design schools working in a complimentary and seamless way: such is the nature of diplomacy.

When Michał Bieżyński from the Urban Forms mural festival in Łódź, Poland gave two towers to five local guys with a solid graffiti history and professional credibility to work together on a collaborative piece, he had to trust that they could combine their styles and finally strike a balance. Now clearly closer to what is thought of as a Street Art aesthetic, the murals they create blend together into one voice with an harmonious timber.

“We got two massive buildings to paint entirely free hand and we had to build the team and the project so that we would be able to manage such giant spaces,” says artist Robert Proch, also known as TONE, one of the five artists working together. “The Polish scene is quite integrated in some sense,” he explains, “We know each other well simply because we have been doing numerous walls together for years now.”

Leaning toward the fantastic and representative, the two mirroring compositions ripple upward from the figurative to the abstract, melting and exchanging shapes and forms that move from organic to rigid and rhythmic. In fact, it was not a completely smooth process to face the huge project wholistically and represent the perspectives of five different artists.

“Despite the long wall paint experience of our group, we found that it wasn’t so easy to integrate,” describes TONE. Ultimately however, cooperation and synergism of styles began to overtake the process and the artists found a way for their styles to act complementarily

“We have never had a chance to work together in such a configuration,” says TONE, “but our knowledge about each others styles helped us to separate our appropriate roles. We began with a very rough concept for the general idea; make the composition somehow integrated with the landscape of Łódź suburbs.

The building on the left shows residents rushing at sunrise with all their hopes and frustrations. The right one shows the big return and closes the whole scene in a circular manner. Viewed vertically from bottom to top all the human figures become more and more reduced into pure abstract form. As an accent on each wall a bollard-man who appears standing in the crowd.”

The resulting diptych is entitled “Recycles” and each of the 33 meter high walls can be seen from a great distance by many of their neighbors.  In fact, it was the act of creating distance to look at the big picture that TONE says finally helped the guys work together harmoniously.

“A team wall requires each painter to make little steps backward to help achieve a general project integrity. Also the rhythm of work with lifts forced us to separate into two groups; the first week was occupied by Chazme, Cekas and Proembrion, and Sepe and Tone joined in for the second week.”

The five artists would also like to give props to the assistants who helped. “We have to mention also our lift-lords: Marek, Mirek and Darek, who struggled during whole process by operating with levels and helpful suggestions and a steady hand. Thank you guys!”
