Street Art That Kills

olek-underwater-art-mexico

‘Yarn bomber’ turned underwater activist, Olek, is wanted by Mexican environmental authorities after she crocheted over sculptures at the environmentally protected Cancun Underwater Museum, resulting in the possible deaths of marine life growing on the subaqueous works of art. While Olek explained that her stunt was performed “to bring awareness to the state of the world’s oceans and promote the preservation of #marinelife” she herself became part of the problem. As noted by the museum director “believe it or not, there is a lot of marine life growing, incrusted in the sculpture, and we gather that this has killed it.”

Adventures in Spray Painting

Go With The Flow is a group show currently on view at The Hole that explores the use of sprayed paint by 19 contemporary artists. Ranging from atomized paint traditionally used on automotives, to airbrush and aerosol, the show’s works come to life on walls covered in plastic sheeting that one can only assume were placed to mimic the environment where the art was created, and not for cleaning up a Patrick Bateman type slaughter. Go With The Flow runs through August 23, 2014.

Tattooing out of: Kingdom Family in Kiev, Ukraine

First tattoo I ever did: “First tattoo I did was one year ago on my boyfriend Gusak. It was a little skull. He is also a tattooer and the best teacher who taught me everything for all this time.”

WTF Happened to Movie Posters?

Blade: King of Graffiti

In all probability, BLADE has painted more subway cars than you have ever ridden on. By 1980, after reaching 5000 or so, the graffiti pioneer stopped counting. In this new 256-page book edited by Roger Gastman, BLADE sits down with Chris ‘FREEDOM’ Pape to reflect on a life of getaways, girls, and the golden years of graffiti. His story is one for the ages, and a must read for those fascinated with the “old” New York.

On a related note for those in NYC: This Friday (8/8) BLADE and Chris Pape will be at the Museum of the City of New York for a presentation and book signing in relation to their new book. More info on that here
