The Street Art That Inhabits an Abandoned Village in Belgium

The Street Art That Inhabits an Abandoned Village in Belgium | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Right before the millenium, the Village of Doel in Belgium was abandoned to make way for expansion plans for the port of Antwerp. The government had a nature compensation law that required land to be set aside for nature to take back to offset the new construction. Indeed “nature” did come back in. As the locals left, artists started coming to Doel to use the village as their canvas and work completely unrestricted. Now the village has turned into an art installation or gallery of sorts and there are lots of artwork that are monumental in size. Take a tour of the town with the series of photographs below...

ROA and Phlegm Hiding in a Dark London Alley

ROA and Phlegm Hiding in a Dark London Alley | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Modern Flemish master ROA has decorated four walls of an industrial yard with Gothic bird skulls, while the remaining doorways, loading bays and other brick surfaces show an entangled narrative of dark materials by Sheffield-based Phlegm. These hidden gems were only made fully accessible by the serendipitous arrival of a resident in the adjoining apartment, who had keys to the barred gate of the yard.
As I leave back through the tunnel to the High Street, my head spinning with intense imagery, the waft of goat curry mingles with odors from an Arabic tea-stall, the hawker’s call and the loud strains of passing London buses. Back to reality, cheap shops selling tat and the predictable chain stores of an English high street; an identity being crushed by corporate greed.

Vandalog – A Street Art Blog » Sean Hart | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Sean Hart is a French street artist who seems to specialize in tumblr-friendly work, and I mean that in the best possible way. Like Banksy, his work always seems ready to go viral. At the same time, Hart’s manifesto/bio seems to be trying to say that he is much more than just another potential viral flavor-of-the-month but rather a street artist who actually does more than watch Exit Through the Gift Shop and start putting up stencils (and he’s actually been working outdoors for years). Anyway, here’s a bit of what he has done after the jump…

Don’t know what to say about this, you have to watch it for yourself. Everyone has a hustle, but something seems silly about all this and fro what it looks like this gallery held an opening reception selling all these “legally acquired” Bansky pieces? Most likely they will end up in a collectors house viewed only by a few elite friends, I say leave it in the street for all to appreciate.

Milan Design Week: e-QBO

Milan Design Week: e-QBO | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Here we are on top of the infamous design week of Milan, with the city literally crawling of events inside and outside Salone del Mobile. Leaving back the thousands of design and creative enthusiasts to their fake strawberry cocktails we appreciated the bold installation e-QBO popping up from the SD4SC – smart design for smart cities. Imagine a black cube made of solar panels providing free juice to recharge phones, bikes, smart cars and free wi-fi. Sponsored by the worldfamous Ottagono magazine and RSE – Energetic Research System the installation shows the creative touch of two friends: concept conceived and designed by Romolo Stanco, street art and videomapping by V3rbo...

Russian Street Artist’s Laser-Shooting Space Invader Sculpture Brings in Bomb Squad | In the Air: Art News & Gossip | ARTINFO.com

Russian Street Artist’s Laser-Shooting Space Invader Sculpture Brings in Bomb Squad | In the Air: Art News & Gossip | ARTINFO.com | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

[VIDEO]

The Russian street artist Pavel 183 (or “P183″) — already internet famous for works that have been branded knock-offs of better-known rogue artists like Banksy — earned some unwanted attention for his latest stunt, which involved hanging a moving, laser-shooting Space Invader above a busy road in Moscow.

The installation, which lit up as if shooting lasers whenever a vehicle passed below, caught the attention of the city’s police force, which blocked off the area and called in a bomb disposal unit. In a TV interview following the piece’s removal (embedded below), Pavel 183 said: “I’m shocked at the police reaction. [...] Who could have possibly mistaken a two-meter-wide space invader for a bomb?”

Pavel 183s latest stunt, titled “Traffic Jam Blaster,” might have been mistaken for another street artist’s work, though. The French artist Invader is known for his tile installations in the shapes of the vintage video game characters, and can be found in most cities around the world. While the Russian’s interactive installation is decidedly more sophisticated — and conspicuous — resemblances between the two 8-bit street pieces are hard to miss....

ROA continues his vertiginous worldwide tour with the animal kingdom in tow, meeting many of the two legged species on the way. Venturing far from his river town of Ghent in Belgium, ROA brings his distinctive monochromatic aerosol painting everywhere; high lands, flat lands, canyons, mountains, crusty old buildings, huts, rusty car carcasses, wooden vessels, water tanks. More often today he also brings them to a gallery or the occasional museum.

Mashallah News → Where the Streets Have New Names | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Just like the other revolutionary countries – most notably Egypt but also Tunisia, Bahrain, Syria and others – Libya has seen an explosion in street art. Under Gaddafi, neither political opposition nor independent cultural expressions were tolerated. Graffiti pieces like those you can see all over the streets today – mocking Gaddafi, celebrating the Libyan people – were unthinkable. Mashallah has put together a gallery with some of the street art of post-Gaddafi Libya. The photographs were taken in Benghazi, Tripoli and Misrata during February and March.

Artist Owen Dippie, recreated (freehand ) the legendary portrait of Ina Te Papatahi, of Nga Puhi tribe, which was originally painted by Charles Goldie in 1902. C F Goldie was a well-known New Zealand artist, famous for his portrayal of Maori dignitaries with chin tattooing (Ta moko). The practice was no longer current at the time and the remaining examples were mostly elderly; it was also a practice largely confined to high-status individuals.
