Remember I said I would do this? Well its happening.
Also read my last post if this is the first one you are checking out today you lazy ass. (you may cry.. I know I almost did).
So sort of in a bind right now with work.. but I have been rocking the updates recently if I do say so myself.
Here is a pretty sick video that sort of comments on our street art vs graffiti convo (and the idea of graffiti as monotony)
If you are still wondering Ives vs. D4cks is still in full swing as a project, but I am working on it in a separate website.. Ill have more updates for you soon.
In the meantime check out our new favorite blog – Butterfly.
I wanted to title this Bromance of the
Week Month. But idk, I can’t get that line thingy in the title and so my efforts were thwarted.
For those of you sceptical because he makes cats.. be aware that Catlanta (Facebook page) is awesome and you enjoy this regardless.
Images,videos and my rantings after the break.
I still watch this video from time to time.. It just reminds me that street artists can really make a difference.
To all the fans of the blog, keep investing your time in street art. Whether its painting, pasting, placing or posting about street art. It is all an important part of the process. You can change people’s opinions and views and you can change them. In my opinion, street art has the most potential (more than books, films, commercials, music) to change the outlook of the public. When you watch a movie you enter into an agreement subconsciously that you know this movie is more then just for entertainment. As a public we understand that most entertainment has some sort of meta-narrative to it, a meaning behind it, a reason for telling us this story. I think that we tend to put on blinders because of this agreement, we see it coming a mile away and are used to the same old argument.
Because of the nature of street art, there is no agreement. Whether you want to or not, you are forced to absorb its information when you see it. It is the way billboards work, but instead of a corporate message designed to lure you in- you get to decide what you want to say.
So, guys, keep it up.
That Universal Mind Control now move your behind. +1 to Slytherin for anyone who can tell me what that is from (and yes.. that was just a freaking harry potter referance ’cause we are cool here like that).
I make this the title.. because really this post has sooo much pure awesomeness I can’t begin to describe how sweet it truly is.
