ROMEO for BOOGIE

Here is a short preview of another exchange to come: this time ROMEO of the SONS Crew from Holland paints a piece for BOOGIE

“I started as a b-boy and tagged my “streetname” on the carton board where ever I went. So when I found out I had to make something for Boogie I automatically wanted to do an “electric” Boogie It turned out to be another freestyle with the word ‘electric’ in the background. The MOLOTOW™-PREMIUM orange outline and the purple fill in works but it is hard to get a good picture in the tunnel where this is painted. I even used some small Molotow cans I found on a market. Let’s hope this piece will set a smile on Boogies face…greetings from the Netherlands!!” (Romeo, Nasty) Sons.

See ROMEO´s piece after the jump, BOOGIE´s reply will follow soon!

DAIM – New book and current exhibition

With the single exhibition monomania the Bern-based zone contemporaine enters new territory. An artist is working on-site and realizing a work directly at the exhibition wall for the first time. “DAIMmonomania” with a size of 140 square meters is Mirko Reisser’s biggest work created in an exhibition space so far. The powerful, seemingly tangible work is determined by processes of construction and deconstruction, the abstract letter formation constitutes the key element of his three-dimensional works. The reductions of his visual motif to the four letters of his writer’s name is barely visible for the beholder, too complex and multi-layered is the spatial structure. It makes the exhibition spaces explode and openly intervenes with their aesthetic design. The distinct architectural structure is being dissolved while the works demands all attention for itself. The realization process of the work is recorded in a Making Of movie here. On another note: a new book is out now documenting the work of DAIM within the years 1989 to 2014, please

Blek Le Rat on Banksy and Swoon

In this video narrative, Complex documents and and interviews street art legend Blek Le Rat about his passion for art, and the work that has attracted spectacular amounts of attention, globally, for the past 30 years. Celebrated and revered by both the public and street artists alike, Blek Le Rat’s artworks have inspired and influenced some of the biggest name street artists in the world, including the notorious Banksy. “Every time I think I’ve painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek le Rat has done it as well, only 20 years earlier,” Banksy claims. Working mostly with stencils, Blek Le Rat is anything but a vandal. Blek Le Rat’s emblem, the rat, comes alive on the walls of Parisian streets. His rats serve as a symbol for his personal social concerns. They reflect his commentary on modern society. “There are 10 million people in Paris, I believe there are 20 million rats,” he states, “Rats are the only animals that are truly free in the city.”

Fieldey´s Surf Art Workshop

The inaugural Gidgets Go Picasso Surfboard Art Workshop was held lately at the Bondi Pavilion and despite the crappy weather it went off! Artist Fieldey who runs the workshop said “I was so stoked with the response that we got from this, everyone was super lovely, and it was great to hear silence in the room as everyone was in deep creative concentration painting their surfboard artworks.” She led eight workshoppers through a four step cleaning process to prepare their boards for painting and demonstrated some of her favourite old-school spray techniques using MOLOTOW™-PREMIUM and a handy palm frond and then let them loose on the supplies.At the end of the day it ended up with nine completely different artworks, each one a unique expression of creativeness and ready to hit the waves.
