I was gonna post about the amazing artwork of Herbert Baglione and saw that Juxtapoz did me one better and dug up a fantastic interview with Baglione in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The interview is from The Run UP series put together by Fifty24SF Gallery and Upper Playground. Love the opening with Baglione drawing in the sand and the waves erasing the work. “…it’s not what you show people but how it makes you feel inside”.
I snagged a few images of his work, below:
Wooster Collective just posted some images and a fantastic video clip of Banksy’s latest show Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill. It is completely unrecognizable as Banksy work as there are no trademark stencils, no wheatpastes, no graffiti of any kind in the space. Instead there are amazing animatronic sculptures – little chicken mcnuggets drinking from a bbq sauce package, security cameras perched in a nest, fish sticks swimming in a fish bowl, hotdogs lounging in cages with mustard drinking bottles.
If you live in New York city get over to 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village! The show is up until Halloween.
Muto by Blu. This is an astonishing work of art. I have never seen anything like this. Street art turned into a stop-motion animation on public walls in Buenos Aires and in Baden (this apparently took several months – i don’t doubt it)! I am not just impressed by the “trick” of turning graffiti into an animation, the animation itself is engaging and quite beautiful to watch. I am stunned.
I had the privilege of meeting James a.k.a. SheOne at a live painting event, that Addict Clothing put on, here in downtown Vancouver. We met up again and I had the chance to interview him while he painted some canvases for Anthony’s shop, Subdivision. I planned to have the video edited and on the net shortly after that, but I ended up getting swamped with a few other projects and since this was a personal one, it kinda got pushed to the backburner.
It has taken me awhile, but I am happy to finally get the opportunity to share this little video with you all. James is an amazingly talented artist and a down to earth human being, I am honored to call him a friend. This video is kinda like looking at an elephant through a keyhole; it’s but a small peek at the innerworkings of the artist known as SheOne. Enjoy.
