Collection of Google Earth Anomalies by Artist Clement Valla

Valla26

Rather than view these Google Earth distortions as glitches in the global mapping system’s algorithm, Brooklyn-based artist Clement Valla considers such occurrences integral to it — drawing our attention to the process rather than the illusion the software is designed to create. Check out more images from Valla’s collection, titled “Postcards From Google Earth”, below!

Community Colour Mural by Artist Luke Ramsey

Ramsey1

Our friend Luke Ramsey’s latest mural is part of the Create Community Colour Mural Program, a project that aims to beautify 6 graffiti hotspots around Victoria, British Columbia as well as provide mentorship between established artists and the city’s youth.

With the help of aspiring artists Jocelyn Zhao and Sarah Jim, Luke created a piece that isn’t just about painting over things we deem ugly and imposing our ideas of what is beautiful. The finished product not only incorporates pre-existing tags but actually includes “invited taggers” — artists Shawn O’Keefe and Erik Volet — challenging graffiti’s tradition of tagging and territory by offering a different kind of representation and space for inclusion.
