londinoupolis: Street art in Athens

londinoupolis: Street art in Athens | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Art is not only found in galleries or personal collections. Fantastic art is easily found in big cities, mostly to promote various ideas, but also to give a colourful background to the grey dullness of the buildings. One example is found in the centre of Athens, especially the Keramikos and Gkazi areas in the centre of the Greek capital.

Street Art: Evol’s Tower Blocks At Smithfield Market

Street Art: Evol’s Tower Blocks At Smithfield Market | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it
Eagle-eyed reader Jeane Trend-Hill was in Smithfield yesterday checking out the latest street art creation by German artist Evol. As you can probably gather, he takes concrete blocks and uses stencils and paste-ups to create miniature tower blocks – at Smithfield he’s created a mini estate.

The blocks are actually bollards blocking off the Crossrail construction site. The artwork appeared about two weeks ago, and the guy we spoke to at Smithfield couldn’t see a reason why they’d be removed or cleaned up – which is a commendable attitude, especially compared to some others we’ve mentioned...

Jaime Rojo & Steven Harrington: The Secret Street Art Gallery Beneath Paris | Deuceones | Internet Mash Up

Jaime Rojo & Steven Harrington: The Secret Street Art Gallery Beneath Paris | Deuceones | Internet Mash Up | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Opening under cover of night somewhere in Paris, four stories beneath la rue, a secret subterranean gallery in a sealed tunnel appears suddenly. While activity on the street overhead is hectic and dense with cars, trucks and pedestrians, the dry dust is ankle-high here in this darkened, silent morgue—its cool, dank air now permeated with fresh aerosol. The Underbelly has been here, and if you discover this curated collection of Street Art and graffiti in the chilled dim light, you are officially lost. And lucky....

Knarf hits the INOP wall | All City Street Art | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

After Roa, Knarf put his colorful touch to the wall. INOPERAbLE invited the local super star to adorn the wall in the seventh district before he does his first solo show in January. Knarf will present his 2011 project “My year has 365 pages.” As the color of the city turns more and more grey and the temperatures dip to the single digits, we are happy Knarf added some cheerful color.

Why Britain's historic homes need Hindu dogs, graffiti artists and mud-runners - Telegraph

Why Britain's historic homes need Hindu dogs, graffiti artists and mud-runners - Telegraph | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

The upkeep and maintenance of ageing listed buildings is having a crippling effect and forcing owners to find ever more innovative ways of bringing in visitors.
Members of the Historic Houses Association (HHA) appealed to the Government yesterday not to add to their economic burden by introducing a ‘mansion tax’.
Edward Harley, president of the HHA, said: “The economic backdrop is extraordinarily tough for our members.
“Owners already spend £140 million maintaining their properties but they need to spend an additional £20 million just to stand still.
“With rising costs and squeezed incomes, that money simply is not there. However, investment is needed to look after the heritage that underpins Britain’s tourism.”

Charcoal graffiti portraits by Jorge Rodriguez Gerada

Charcoal graffiti portraits by Jorge Rodriguez Gerada | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it
Since 2002 Gerada has been creating large-scale charcoal portraits of anonymous people as part of his Identity Series.

Jorge Rodriguez Gerada was born in Cuba in 1966 and immigrated to the US in 1970. He was a founding member of the Artflux group and part of the Cicada Corps of Artists. In 2002 he started creating large-scale charcoal portraits of anonymous people as part of his Identity Series. In 2008 there was wide media coverage of his large 2 1/2 acre sand painting of Barack Obama. Following is a brief description of Gerada’s goal:

My idea is to show that we should all be seen with dignity. I believe that our identity should come from within not from the brands that we wear. We should question who chooses our cultural icons and role models, our values and aesthetics.

Au Caire, le «Street art» fleurit sur la place Tahrir

Au Caire, le «Street art» fleurit sur la place Tahrir | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

La place Tahrir au Caire: ses tentes, ses manifestants par dizaines de milliers, ses vendeurs de popcorn, ses gaz lacrymogènes et... ses graffitis. Depuis janvier dernier, les murs de la place de la capitale égyptienne et des rues avoisinantes ont vu fleurir des dizaines de peintures murales, se renouvelant au gré de l'actualité du pays.
Depuis mardi dernier et les heurts entre manifestants et policiers ayant fait officiellement une quarantaine de morts, c'est le maréchal Tantaoui, le chef du conseil militaire chargé du pays, qui est dans le collimateur des artistes de rue égyptiens. Son portrait au pochoir, en rouge ou en noir, s'impose à chaque coin de rue, barré d'un signe d'interdiction...

Graffiti Trip

Graffiti Trip | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

The photographer Gzave tells us about his graffiti trip in Asia. Come discover Kuala Lumpur, Bali, and Bandung through his story and photos.
Another translation by Jacqui providing you exclusive french articles previously published on FatCap.org. Enjoy.

Graffiti and street art in Malaysia and Indonesia
After returning from a long trip in Asia, Gzave does us the pleasure of sharing his graffiti roadtrip through Kuala Lumpur in Malasia, Bali, and Bandung, Indonesia with us and the FatCap readers. Here is Gzave’s report compiling his experience and of course his photographs of tags, pieces, and other characters. Inside, find out about encounters with artists and the exploration of the land and its graffiti.

Kuala Lumpur
Capital of Malaysia, city of 4 million people. Its name means “muddy confluence” in Malay.
Upon arriving in Kuala Lumpur, you immediately notice the presence of graffiti done by tourists and foreign artists of renown. There are English artist NED’s tags and flops, the huge pieces by French artist Hozoï, and many other silvers, tags, and pieces done by Australians and Germans. There is, of course, a lot of local graffiti that you can see but it is worth noting that their styles are very similar to those in the United States and Europe. Right away you can sense a strong influence from MSK and this feeling is confirmed, even assumed, in speaking with the local artists. Graffiti alone does not dominate the streets. Stencils are equally present and the mix of the two makes the city lively and attractive....

Vandalog – A Street Art Blog » MOMO is the man

Vandalog – A Street Art Blog » MOMO is the man | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Last month, I saw an installation by MOMO here in Philadelphia at Space 1026. Seeing the installation made me fall in love with MOMO all over again. Some of the first pieces of street art I ever noticed around London were his abstract wheatpastes, which stood out among a sea of logos and figures as something different and fresh. Since then, MOMO has been the artist whose work I think best exemplifies successful abstract street art. With street art, there is a tendency for galleries, blogs, festivals and magazines to stick to “easy” art, but MOMO doesn’t make art that you can look at for two seconds and leave alone. He changes environments. MOMO isn’t just putting up a photoshopped Batman stencil or whatever the kids are doing these days to get some hype. Nevertheless, MOMO has worked with Papermonster, FAME Festival, The Underbelly Project, Anno Domini and more. While staying just outside of this culture’s mainstream, it seems that MOMO has a lot of fans who, like me, keep him in the back of their mind at all times for his ability to push post-graffiti and street art forward and make spaces beautiful. That is to say, here’s an interview with MOMO after the jump…

Sao Paulo Faces

Sao Paulo Faces | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Sao Paulo deserves its status of cultural capital of Brazil. The street art is well established. A selection of portraits for your curiosity.
Multi-ethnic city, Sao Paulo is full of paintings from the sewer to the buildings upper floors. Religion and African roots mix together for an original rendering. The styles are so unique, the realism of Dumeem alongside the amazing style of Nunca or even the cartoon style of 6emeia and Ignoto.

Sex Pistols' graffiti being studied by archaeologists is 'as important as the caves of Lascaux in southern France'

Sex Pistols' graffiti being studied by archaeologists is 'as important as the caves of Lascaux in southern France' | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it
One is a dazzling set of caveman drawings, found in France, from the Upper Paleolithic period thousands of years ago.
The other is an array of doodles, found in London, from the early Punk period around 40 years ago.
And both, it would seem, are equally worthy of scholastic debate.
Graffiti daubed on the walls of a flat by the Sex Pistols' Johnny Rotten could be as important as the discovery of early Beatles recordings - or even the prehistoric Lascaux cave paintings.
The wild scrawls in the property once occupied by the punk pioneers give a unique insight into the origins of the 1970s musical movement.
