Insert your own "dust in the wind" joke here...

We gotta admit it, we're big fans of dust art. From the ubiquitous "Wash Me" signs to the "Dusty Willie" masterpiece you see here by an anonymous dust painter in AUSTIN last week. What better excuse is there not to wash the whip?

Mr Supine's free art floatie steers away from New Jersey...

NYC's (well, Brooklyn, actually) chartreuse-loving street anonymous art phantom JUDITH SUPINE has reprised his last summer's attack on the vaguely toxic East River by sending yet another color-screaming art floatie out to sea this weekend. No word yet as to whose hands the diving beauties ultimately ended up in, but one thing's for sure, it'll probably turn up in some high-end street art auction sooner than later.

BOSTON///POPAGANDA///RON ENGLISH’S “ABRAHAM OBAMA” CONTROVERSY…

Looks like being considered a Muslim is the least of Barack's 99 problems now...

It seems that Supertouch's own RON ENGLISH can't catch a break. After gifting the residents of Boston's South End with a 100 foot long rainbow "Abraham Obama" wheatpaste poster mural depicting the image of presidential hopeful BARACK OBAMA melded with the portrait of America's 16th president, the city's residents are crying for its removal. Not on political or even aesthetic grounds—though the installation has polarized viewers on both topics—but for the hundreds of illegal posters that have since popped up on walls around the city. Installed legally to commemorate the opening of Boston's GALLERY XIV political art show "A Politic," it seems our resident Popagandist made plentiful black & white copies of his hybrid portrait available free of charge to the show's attendees who have since taken it upon themselves to plaster the images on nearly every flat vertical surface around town. With the gallery fielding angry calls from the Mayor's office and MSNBC reporting nationally on the event, it seems young Abe's days might be numbered. Enjoy it while you can. HAVE A LOOK: Read More

Just when you thought tattoos (or rock, for that matter) couldn't get any lamer, along comes this masterpiece to restore our confidence in man. Randy Rhodes will live forever in this Mt. Rushmore of Jailhouse inking, and we see a few pieces of prime real estate still open and ready for a nice vintage Van Halen logo to drop in...
