Know Hope “Bound By The Ties” Art Installation and Book Release (Tel Aviv, Israel)

Know Hope

From the radio silence and the stirring tides, I am sincerely excited to let you know that I will be releasing my second book titled ‘Bound By The Ties’ next week.
The book is composed of a collection of drawings, writings, photographs and other side-seen moments, some from the recent past, and some from very close to the present.
I sewed, folded and mended, retrieved and recited; tried to understand how we got to where we are now (sunken/sunken/sunken)
This is a book that contains a narrative that speaks of being born into debt, being overwhelmed in a heartbroken world and finding and recognizing eachother in these complexities.
It attempts to document our rituals-how and why they were created. It is a folk tale of some sort, collective memories compiled like a time-capsule, or fireworks in a jar.
So, here are the details:
-The book is independently published in an edition of 1000 and is comprised of 160 full-color pages.
-There is a limited edition of the book that have handmade covers; meaning that they bear hand-sewn drawings, photographs and collages, making no two books the same.
This edition is signed and numbered and is an edition of 75.
-The prices of the books are $35 and $120, respectively.
-The book will be released at an event taking place here in Tel Aviv on March 10th.
The event will include an installation of all the original drawings, photographs and texts used in the book allowing an organic and tactile experience of the books content.
-The book will be available at the event, and on at the very day after.

All Eyes on the Streets of Egypt

How can you not be riveted to Al Jazeera online and Twitter and Facebook and Youtube right now as a purely people-powered movement in the streets of major cities all over Egypt is working to dislodge their president?  Even after the government shut down the internet in the most comprehensive way in history, Egyptians have taken to the streets to reassert their right to self-determination.

This is the first of a two part release by Obey celebrating the quest for truth that fires inside Henry.

Happy New Year! BSA Highlights of 2010


As we start a new year, we say thank you for the last one.

And Thank You to the artists who shared their 11 Wishes for 2011 with Brooklyn Street Art; Conor Harrington, Eli Cook, Indigo, Gilf, Todd Mazer, Vasco Mucci, Kimberly Brooks, Rusty Rehl, Tip Toe, Samson, and Ludo. You each contributed a very cool gift to the BSA family, and we’re grateful.

We looked over the last year to take in all the great projects we were in and fascinating people we had the pleasure to work with. It was a helluva year, and please take a look at the highlights to get an idea what a rich cultural explosion we are all a part of at this moment.

The new year already has some amazing new opportunities to celebrate Street Art and artists. We are looking forward to meeting you and playing with you and working with you in 2011.

“Know Hope” Depicts Conflict in Israel

Know Hope’s figures are frequently in conflict with one another or with themselves, with no one appearing to win, and everyone damaged – sometimes with copious blood dripping and limbs askew or missing .  After a visit by Irish street artist Conor Harrington, who did a new piece with him a couple of weeks ago, it looks like Know Hope got inspired to do some new solo wall pieces.  Both of them are quite moving.


This one is particularly well placed in a context of a dilapidated structure – as if the history of the room bespeaks a conflict of it’s former inhabitants, who obviously ran out of time.


This larger scale piece is accompanied around the corner with a poem that some how gives voice to the piece.  I’d rather let the piece speak for itself this time.

From Conor’s Blog

“I spent a week in the Middle East, painting in both Israel and Palestine. I brought my boy Andy with me to film it all so we’ll have a short lil film coming out at some stage. It was one of those trips where you’ve no idea whats ahead. You can only prepare for so much and remain open to all eventualities. I think I need a holiday.”
