Urban Interventions

Gestalten has just released a brilliant book, Urban Interventions. There are so many “street art” books out there with a haphazard selection of derivative work that I’ve become a bit jaded. This book is such a nice surprise, bursting with energy and filled with amazing work I’ve never seen before.

    Urban interventions are the next generation of artwork to hit public space and It is the first book to document these very current, personal art projects in a comprehensive way. I’ll definitely recommend it.

      i think there have been some similar books around before, take, for example The Art Of Rebellion 1 and 2. And it feels that the urban intervention genre had already hit its (popularity) peak a few years ago.
      Anyway this seems a book worth checking out

    awesome!

Artist Makes Street Repairs Using Gold

Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman adapts the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) in her ongoing series “Sidewalk Kintsukuroi.” Traditionally used to fix broken pottery, gold or silver is used to embellish the repair as it is seen as part of the object’s history rather than something to hide.

In Sussman’s case, filling cracks in the pavement pays similar homage to the changes that have taken place in the world around us. See more images from the project below or on display at the Des Moines Art Center until May 5th.

Reader Submission: Debby Wu

Lauren Tsai

 

France-based illustrator Debby Wu asked four Asian girls she follows on Instagram a series of personal questions and created an illustration for each based on their responses. The questions ranged from the kind of software they use most on their computers to how easily they feel insecure in love. See more from “Asian Girls Insecure” below.
