This is a nice street project by Mr. Talion. I just wonder how he comes up with those prices? See the work here.
Man, these donut muffins sound and look so good. Anybody want to bake me some?
Street Art Action is a public exhibition opening Friday by British artist Adam Neate. Beginning before dawn, Neate will deposit over 1000 pieces of his artwork onto the streets of London. Quite the Recession Special.
From a spot we thought was a hotel to an event we thought was an art opening, there was much to do and think about doing over the course of the night. El Toro documents the scene.
This Saturday at Deitch LIC, The Ten Commandments. Should be fun.

The Ten Commandments, one of Keith Haring’s most powerful series of paintings, will be presented at Deitch Studios, Long Island City, from November 8 – December 21, 2008. The works portray the Ten Commandments from Haring’s point of view, combining a traditional Biblical interpretation with the artist’s liberating spirit and apocalyptic vision. The Ten Commandments were painted for Haring’s first solo museum show, a 1985 exhibition at the CAPC, Bordeaux, a reconverted wool warehouse with a span of twenty-five foot high archways supporting the roof. Thinking about how to best use the space, known as “the nave,” Haring had the inspiration to order ten tablet shaped canvases to fit within the arches. While on the dance floor at the Paradise Garage the day before leaving for Bordeaux, he had a vision to paint The Ten Commandments.

That title was irritating to write. Luckily, there is no audio component to this list, that would be painful.
With a new body of work containing Native Americans clashing with 20th century advertising, Faile succeeds. For those who are unable to make it to London in the next 10 days, the next best thing is this series of photographs by the prolific Romanywg. A couple of my favorites after the jump.
