I’ve just left Grottaglie where I worked two robusto weeks with the gracious stellar Fame Fest.  There’s less than 2 weeks to find a flight to the expo/opening/party, hot beaches, perfect food, & art (info), September 24.  This year I worked with three artisans for the show and painted two walls.  I’ll have documentation soon,  I’ve just arrived in Tilburg Holland for DIY culture fest Incubate Sept 12 – 18.

Note the custom Vespa windscreen on this Grottaglie “Rascal”.

Leuven Museum

August 22, 2011

Eltono and I collaborated a mural above the Leuven Museum, as a part of the Outomatic Festival.  Its visible from the Museum, street, and surrounding apartments.

With three walls, the idea was to connect them different ways.  The perpendicular wall shares an angle with the same facing side on the chimney above, and the top and bottom walls share an arc.  Then these two, arc and angle connect.

Thanks Rene!

I just returned from Leuven Belgium where I drank many delicious beers and had the great pleasure to work with Hans Geyens, The Leuven Museum, and Eltono for a festival called Outomatic.  We made a nice project, to be documented soon.  For now here’s some street work from moi.

Urban Maps in the mail

Richard Brook and Nick Dunn have produced a very academic book dealing with public space interventions and the resulting artifacts as they relate to architectural issues.  We talked while they were doing research in NY two years ago.  Congratulations guys.

Abstract Graffiti – Cedar Lewisohn

June 5, 2011

From Merrell Publishers, by Tate curator Cedar Lewisohn.  I’ve read half of it, it’s really interesting.  That’s me on the back cover (WHAT?!) collage done in New Orleans, 2005.  Cedar curated the Street Art at Tate Modern, 2008.

Modular Du Lage

May 17, 2011

I had the great luck to work with Eltono for Rojo’s NOVA Rio de Janeiro in 2011.

We were there to make temporary sculpture in Rio’s Parque Du Lage.  So we explored ideas and designs, thinking first of interactivity, then info-art, and settling on a modular system that could be arranged numerous ways.

The number of arrangements turned out to be limited firstly by the state of our found wood, being old and soft. So we tried all gravity would allow, working from scale models, around our workshop, and then across the landscaping and into the wild.

Thanks to David, the NOVA team, and NOVA artists

Coronet St

May 16, 2011

The idea here is to see a collage edition

based on a street piece done in London 2008, using the same sketch, and same medium, but 1/10th the size.

To register the design of 47 specific colored & shaped bits of paper laid in one order, 28 times, was fucking tedious.  So afterwards I went berserk on the back with a “sample palette” of colors, and numbering & signature. For fun.

This is the second time I’ve created the 24cm x 30cm collage edition based on larger outdoor work.  Maybe I’ll do it for all the collage designs that seem relevant.

“Coronet St.” 2011, painted acid free paper collage on wood, Edition of 27, one AP, 24cm x 30cm signed & numbered on the back.  Just £ 195 at Nelly Duff 156 Columbia Road London.
