READ: “THE NEW SAO PAULO” IN THE NY TIMES’ T MAGAZINE

Check out the great piece in the recent NY Times T Magazine about Sao Paulo's recent urban cultural renaissance with a nice reference to Supertouch family Os Gemeos:

"...a so-called clean city law approved in 2006 prohibited outdoor advertising, suddenly giving São Paulo’s whitewashed buildings a strangely unsullied look, and allowing massive murals by street artists to ­occupy prominent swaths of the skyline. The dreamy, colorful paintings of the brothers Otávio and Gustavo Pandolfo, graffiti aces who work under the name Os Gêmeos (The Twins), offer prominent examples of this trend, while more subtle street murals like the black line drawings on white facades by Fabiano Gonper provide a cerebral critique of the scramble for wealth and power obsessing many in São Paulo."

EPIC SHOW: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT AT GAGOSIAN GALLERY NYC

Basquiat-Untitled-Two-Heads-on-Gold-1982

Opening to a virtual madhouse of activity (and a sea of gallery security guards), the incredible retrospective of legendary renegade art icon Jean-Michel Basquiat at Gagosian Gallery has indeed proven worthy of all its ubiquitous pre-show hype. Short of the Brooklyn Museum's exhaustive exhibition in 2005, the show is easily the most thrilling collection of pinnacle major Basquiat works on view in years and should be considered essential viewing by anyone in NYC or with the means to get there before the show winds down on April 6th.

You KNOW graffiti is beyond overground when the WALL STREET JOURNAL is actually REPORTING on battles:

A GAME OF TAG BREAKS OUT BETWEEN LONDON'S GRAFFITI ELITE
Slight Brings Robbo Out of Retirement; Cobbler Won't Let Rival Tread on Him

By Gabrielle Steinhauser | Wall Street Journal, March 3, 2010

LONDON—In the predawn hours of Christmas morning, a 40-year-old shoe repairman who goes by the name Robbo squeezed his 6-foot-8-inch frame into a wet suit, tossed some spray cans into a plastic bag, and crossed Regent's Canal on a red-and-blue air mattress. Read More

BANKSY's subterranean screenings of his new documentary, "Exit Through The Gift Shop" in a makeshift pop-up theater in an unused subway tube beneath London's Waterloo Station kicked off this week to queues of rabid fans. Miraculously, the UK bomber managed to keep news of the screenings and his dank setup totally secret until last week's surprise announcement when screenings (twice daily until March 4th) instantly sold out via online sales. The theater features copious amounts of street art inside and out and functions as much as an impromptu Banksy art show as a movie theater. Ironically—or perhaps, appropriately—enough, patrons were forbidden to bring any spray paint or other graffiti marking tools into the screening. Of course, Mr Banks was a no-show (or was he?), but his melted ice cream truck concession stand proved a hit across the board. Have a look at the setup: Read More
