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!

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
