Unexpected Graffiti Error

Thankfully, walls don’t often have this problem…

The Reverse Graffiti Project

13 Nov

This is cool.

Over 20,000 cars, trucks, and motorised vehicles pass through San Francisco’s Broadway tunnel each day. On 14 April 2008, acclaimed documentary maker Doug Pray and street artist Paul “Moose” Curtis came together to create an environmentally friendly work of art in the tunnel and to discuss the idea of the Reverse Graffiti Project.

Georgina Edwards

17 Oct

Canberra-based designer Georgina Edwards is in the middle of compiling her final year graphic design portfolio at the University of Canberra. Between classes and her day job, she somehow managed to find enough time to do some stop-motion graff for local retailers iTrip iSkip and Unit Concepts. The result is the video above. It took eight days to complete and just over a week in post-prod to put the footage together. A shout out has to go to sisters Ana and Diana at iTrip iSkip. Great to see the girls once again showing their support for the local Canberra design scene.

Shadow Puppets

15 Sep

Wooster Collective recently posted these cool pics of street art that play with the concept of light and shadow.

The primary concern of statue art is representational. But whatever a statue (or street art) represents can be warped by perspective – just like this statue in Kaunas, Lithuania.  During the day the piece on the wall looks like a random collection of stars. But when night falls and the shadow of the statue is projected onto that wall, a magical new artwork appears.

Speaking of shadows, here’s the Dark Knight himself. He was spotted near the corner of Iroquois Shore on Trafalgar road in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

Deceptively simple. All it takes is an open mind. Thanks Wooster.

Beautiful Losers

14 Sep

I am absolutely jonesing to watch Beautiful Losers – a new doco directed by Aaron Rose. It charts the rise in the early 1990’s of a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders who found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop and graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Those lifestyles have now collectively helped to transform pop culture.

The Wii Spray

13 Sep

Here’s some good news for those of us that like our graff but don’t like getting our hands dirty. As part of his final thesis, Martin Lihs, a Media Art and Design student at Bauhaus-University in Weimar, Germany, is developing a virtual spraycan controller for the Ninetendo Wii. The can-style casing contains a dismembered Wiimote coupled to a nozzle button. The Wiispray is said to simulate real aerosol graff characteristics and can be used to manipulate an on-screen virtual spraycan, with a range of different paints and colour options.

There’s no news on when (or if) it will be brought to market – although Martin is said to be planning collaborative online spraying via the website.

Let’s get wiitarded in here!
