NYC///ART HYPE///MR BRAINWASH PERFECTS THE ART OF TURD POLISHING WITH THE OPENING OF “ICONS”

February 17, 2010  |  art, Art Crimes, Art History, Art Stunts, Banksy, Feature, Graffiti, News, NYC, Shepard Fairey, Street Art  |  Comments Off

4363964574_0f10031e70_o What has to be the final nail in the “Street Art” coffin was driven in last weekend by none other than MR. BRAINWASH (aka: “The Christian Audigier of Street Art”) when he opened his massive, self-produced “Icons” show in a rented space (which, ironically, was once a real art gallery, pre-recession) in the heart of Chelsea. As the subject of Brit Street Art king Banksy’s recent docu-parody film, “Exit Through The Gift Shop,” MBW has been the focus of much hype and speculation as his presence finally seeps into the fairly muddy stream of mainstream consciousness. Last week’s Wall Street Journal article articulated this particularly well:

FILM///NEWS///BANKSY’S MR BRAINWASH DOCUMENTARY “EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP” SCREENS IN BERLIN

February 16, 2010  |  art, Art Crimes, Banksy, Film, Graffiti, News, Next Big Thing, Street Art  |  Comments Off

Unsurprisingly, our man BANKSY didn't show up:

"An apparent press conference by “Exit Through the Gift Shop” director, and mysterious street artist, Banksy was canceled in Berlin today. A subject of the film, which debuted last month at the Sundance Film Festival, Banksy remains an incognito artist. He issued a video statement that was shown prior to the press screening of his movie on Sunday at the Berlinale, in lieu of a press conference.

He started by saying, in a recorded message, “Unfortunately I can’t be with you today, so I am speaking from my home in England via satellite link.”

“I guess my ambition was to make a film that would do for graffiti art what ‘Karate Kid’ did for martial arts, a film that would get every school kid in the world picking up a spray can and having a go,” said a silhouetted figure, identified as Banksy, in a digitally altered voice on the short video message. He added, “As it turns out, I think we might have made a film that does for street art what ‘Jaws’ did for water sking.” Click HERE to continue reading at INDIE WIRE...

Stephen Colbert has urged his Nation to download this poster now and plaster Vancouver with it. Just don't call him to bail you outta jail...

Conservative talk phenomenon STEPHEN COLBERT is on his way to the as-yet snowless 2010 OLYMPIC games in Vancouver (home of the "Iceholes") to watch his "Team Colbert" speed skaters careen towards victory, and former show guest and ST buddy SHEPARD FAIREY has been commissioned to commemorate the event:

Shepard Fairey took a break from the turntables to hang with Weezer's Brian Bell, while beauty echoed beauty elsewhere in the gallery...

SHEPARD FAIREY's Echo Park hotspot, SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS played host to the opening of a show of new works by comrades-in-arms ANDREAS GUERRERO and ALBERT REYES on Saturday nite, proving to be the undisputed bright spot of an otherwise gloomy weekend in the Southland. Showcasing his typical demented teenage Hessian detention room drawing style, Reyes produced an unfailingly funny array of new offerings and prints featuring subjects as diverse as Obama, Ghandi, Woody Allen, and Iron Maiden muse Eddie. Guerrero, conversely, consturcted much of his skull-centric imagery from layers of collaged currency which appeared to be angular homages to Damien Hirst's Calavera spin paintings. Above all, the show proved that Subliminal's dedication to presenting good emerging art at great prices will make it one of the last galleries standing when this bleak economic crisis finally runs its long, dark, demonic course.

NEWS///SHEPARD FAIREY TO RELEASE HAITI CHARITY POSTER

February 4, 2010  |  art, Graffiti, Haiti, LA, News, Shepard Fairey, Street Art  |  Comments Off

Haiti-500x667

ST buddy SHEPARD FAIREY has teamed up with his STUDIO NUMBER ONE (creaters of the "Hope For Haiti" CD cover) designers CLEON PETERSON and CASEY RYDER to create a new poster for HAITI relief based on a photo by TAO RUSPOLI. The $50 signed and numbered edition goes on sale at an unannounced time on Friday, February 5th at Obeygiant.com, with all proceeds from the sales going to ARTISTS FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE:

"Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ), established in early 2009, is a fundraising effort founded by Paul Haggis and friends that encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty and enfranchisement in communities around the world. Over the past year, APJ has directed its efforts to raising enough funds to fully sponsor three schools in Haiti in support of the initiatives of Father Rick Frechette and his team. These schools aren’t just a place to learn but provide for a hot meal, clean water and a chance at the future to children who desperately need it. Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, APJ has focused its efforts on raising much needed dollars for emergency aid in the ravaged country that is only a few hours from our shores."
