Street Art in Melbourne – Fitzroy

October 8th, 2009 // 1 Comment // Posted by Andrea

The area Fitzroy in Melbourne is likewise famous for its alternative szene like the szene of Friedrichshain in Berlin. And often I was told that both citys are quite similar. So I was interested how streetart covers this szene. What I discovered, sometimes with luck and sometimes with the help of structured search for the untouched and secret places, is shown in my collages. I found for example stencils from Dolk, „Imperial Walker“, „I am your father“ and “R2D2″ and „Zebras“ from Plush. Very exiting!

COMBO a collaborative animation by Blu and David Ellis

September 24th, 2009 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

This might be the most impressive Combination of Street Art and Interactive Media i´ve seen in a long time. Blu is no unknown for who has some interest in street art and David Ellis does some delightful pieces himself. In this cooperation they used an entire building with all aspects and details..brilliant!

thanks charley!

Street art – New work by Blu

August 18th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

All locals from Berlin probably know the giant murals painted close to Warschauer Straße in Berlin. Blu has marked several cities in the world and pleased our eyes with a fantastic animation film MUTO to be seen here.
He´s back with some new giant mural painted in a city in Italy during the FAME festival. Apparently the Land and the Population of Taranto suffered a lot of damage due to a giant factory located in the Place and his work doesn’t leave any doubts of what he meant.

More about the piece here.

thetrap

This one really made me laugh. I was walking up a street close to where i live in Berlin. ..and i see a trap! My first thought was like: “Man, imagine that you´re coming home from a party and really want that freakin golden bottle.”

No clue who did it. Very cool though.

Banksy vs. Bristol Museum

June 17th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

So this might be a reason for me to head over to Bristol this Summer to visit some Friends, go to some nice Dubstep parties and to check out the Banksy exhibition at the Bristol Museum.
He did an Interview with Times Online (rare thing to have Banksy on the Press)… read it here.

Plus there is a nice little Video by the BBC with an Interview with the director of the Museum. Full Press Coverage!!!!
By the way… the exhibiton lasts till the 31st of August and entrance is free!

RekaOne

May 20th, 2009 // 3 Comments // Posted by Andrea

I want to intodruce you to a very famous Artist from Melbourne. RekaOne. He is belonging to the street art scene. Of course he is not only a illustration genius by painting a wall. His illustration gave us a insight in a surrealistic and curious world of unique characters. Tomorrow I will visit a Club in Fitzroy, Melbourne, he created the wallpaintings. So I will see how his work looks in real.

Street Art in Sao Paulo, Brazil

April 30th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

I found a very inspiring video about street art and graffiti in Sao Paulo this morning. Thanks of a friend of mine who sent me a Cool Hunting Video on Youtube about “Pixacao”, a special way of Tagging in Brazil…
This 13 min Film shows how some Artists are raising awareness to social problems in Sao Paulo through their Art and reveals the “Art less Pollution” project by Alexandre Orion, where Imagery is obtained through cleaning polluted Areas.  He “cleans” 3500 Skulls on the walls of a tunel during 17 consecutive nights… it´s in the video but check out the Site.

The Video is not embedabble but still worth watching, so just follow this Link!

But there is one about the tunnel cleaning..so here we go.

This Blog is discontinued…

We're no long generating content for Cityclouds. Consider it an archive for great things we found on the web and elsewhere from 2008 to 2012. The future is bright anyhow...
