recycling scheme 3

Mayor Dimitri Russo of Castel Volturno, Italy dressed some of his council members up as roadside prostitutes to help him get the word out about his new campaign to “promote better recycling schemes in the region.” Some of the motorists who stopped were then pulled over by police a couple hundred yards away and given tickets as part of the mayor’s recently issued anti-prostitution ordinance. Also, we heard NYC only got 8 inches of blizzard. Nice snow, DeBlasio.

Arrested for the Crime of Being a Street Artist’s Girlfriend

Call it guilt by association, because that’s exactly what happened to 43-year-old Mami Urakawa, who was apprehended by Osaka police Wednesday after being identified in a cctv video hanging out with her boyfriend CLET as he added some humor to a street sign in the Japanese city. A “partner both in crime and life,” Urakawa took the rap for her man’s crimes and admitted to participation in the vinyl alterations to the city’s traffic signs which had been targeted by CLET as “symbols of authority that he seeks to challenge through art.” So you must be wondering where dude is during all of this? Well, he’s currently back in Florence, Italy where the couple resides, posting to facebook and sorting out what to do.

A look through some of CLET’s work, below.

Openings & Parties: Ace Hotel x Inherent Vice Art Show, NYC

Last night, psychedelic reigned supreme as artists Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe took over Liberty Hall at the Ace Hotel for a blacklight-filled basement installation in promotion of the film Inherent Vice. Accompanied by a performance from Psychic Ills, the intimate gathering proved to be a worthy trek for attendees on an otherwise frozen night.

For those who missed the opening party, the installation is open to the public at Liberty Hall from 12-8pm until January 11th.

“Freedom to Write”

FREEDOM reminisces on his first visit to what would become the “Freedom” Tunnel.

“In 1974 (at the tender age of 14), my older brother took me to the Freedom Tunnel for the first time. The location wasn’t named that back then, it was just a freight train tunnel that ran for 3 miles beneath Riverside Park from West 72nd to West 122nd Streets. We entered through a Parks bathroom that had a gaping hole in its floor—an entrance that had been created by Steve 161 with a stick of dynamite and subsequently covered with a large piece of plywood. After climbing through the blasted area, we slid down an embankment of dirt and landed at the base of the train tracks. The two of us spent the day climbing up and down the sides of parked trains, practicing our tags with the small can of spray paint we had with us until it ran out, then we headed home. I had no idea how significant an event that day would become.”
