Shepard Fairey – Obey to the better

February 14th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

“Introducing the American artist Shepard Fairey is a bit like explaining whose portrait he famously altered for the “Hope” campaign that was widely used by Barack Obama’s supporters in 2008. Since the mid 1980s he has created outstanding (then: street) art that is strong, iconic and expressive. Shepard Fairey is also a thoughtful, committed, and outspoken activist who revives the artistic virtues of standing up for the freedom of speech and fighting for rational and non-corporate ways of dealing with the issue of copyright. Obey the interview we did with him in Los Angeles in late 2010!” (gestalten.tv)

New documentary: “How to sell a Banksy”.

January 27th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Check out the trailer below.. Hypebeast writes:

“Banksy’s work now reportedly changes hands for millions. But he puts up his street art for free. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got your hands on one of these? Does it mean you’ve found a winning lottery ticket or just scraped some worthless crap off a wall? Going up against the art establishments, critics, auction houses, gallery owners and authentication boards in a quest for the elusive meal ticket, two filmmakers unwittingly gatecrash the murky and protective world of Banksy. How to Sell a Banksy raises questions of ownership, authentication and the true value of art itself. Through all the chaos and incompetence comes a modern-day true story.”

Judith Supine

November 22nd, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

Judith Supine is a 29-year-old artist living in Brooklyn, NY. Supine could not speak until a month after his seventeenth birthday. He could not physically articulate words, he could only squeak and grunt. Supine often drew pictures to communicate with his family. His mom saved all of his pictures, just one of many reasons why his mom is great.

Judith Supine  sources images from fashion magazines, art history books and any other publicatios he manages to lay his hands on. He gets his magazines out of people’s trash, from the public library, from the dentist’s offices, from his little sister’s magazine collection, from bankrupt porn shops. You can find his work on the streets as well, but he is doing a lot of stuff for sell.

Conor Harrington

November 17th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

Conor’s from Cork in Ireland. His work is an incredibly successful collusion between ‘fine’ art and ‘street’ techniques. His work is a result of both worlds, the streets and the classical, or the informal and the formal. He is a figurative painter and he always choose masculinity as his subject.
For me it is, how the world is like, sometimes you see things so clear, it is understandable, things make sense and then there is just one happening, like a brushstroke of his paintings a swoosh in your mind, and everything, which seemed to be in a clear picture before is now blurred and destroyed. We live an abstract life of strange happenings, but after a while if we look back to our live, we can see a pattern. And even if his work looks so chaotic, you can see a system, a beautiful pattern, like our lives. His work is paradoxical, so is our. It is like most of the people feel – always between two decisions or two lines. I really like this guy. He is one of my favorite artists.
