Gene P here to sock another round of Best of Belgium to ya cheeters and pumpkin eaters. This one actually took place in French Flanders, which is not technically part of the nasty B, but it’s close enough to hock a loogie on the King of Belgium, if you are so inclined (much respect to Albert II). From now until March 1st the Maison Folie in Lille is hosting the ProPeace Street Art exhibit in all its Fleming glory. Showcasing the likes of Féfé, Jonone and local talent Jef Aérosol among others, the Flemings put on quite a show. Thanks for the photos Elsa!
This is real.
Last Friday we were sitting around watching Youtube video’s and drinking some wine. Maybe it was the wine or a stroke of genius. We were inspired to mash up this youtube video with one of our favorite tv theme songs.
If you have any suggestions of other songs that might work please post in the comments. Enjoy.

Before writers and street artists had cameras, the only way to document and prove their ups was to get it into a painting. Pieter Saenredam’s 1644 painting, Interior of the Buurkerk at Utrecht.
If you missed it, we found it. Radiohead on the Grammy’s with Gwenyth Paltrow gushing. Do you thing Chris is thinking, “she never says that to me”?
Chris Johanson’s exhibit, Totalities, was one of the best of 2008. We’re glad to hear that Deitch Projects has published a book capturing this moment in time.
“This board book documents Totalities, Chris Johanson’s recent “contemporary living installation” at Deitch Projects, New York. The theme of the work is the planet Earth and its place in the universe. There is also a meditation on the natural world of plants and animals—how they live within themselves, and how they are affected by humans—with an emphasis on conservation. All of the wood used in the exhibition was recycled, either from New York State, from dumpsters near the artist’s Brooklyn studio or from discarded art-shipping crates. The artist even asked his friends and acquaintances for scraps of wood, endeavoring to give his materials a third life. In this volume, he alludes to the degradation of the planet and the beauty of the world through art—reminding us all of our terrestrial responsibilities.”
