Jon Rafman

Bushwick based artist, Jon Rafman, spends a lot of time online.  He’s committed 100′s of hours to combing through the thousands of miles google maps  has available as street  view from around the world and taken screen shots of the gems he’s unearthed. A house burning down, a prostitute passed out on the sidewalk, or a man standing on the corner staring astoundedly up into the 8 foot eye of the google vans 360° camera.  Crazy more photos after the jump.

Schlagschatten

Or in English, “Hard Shadow,” was designed by Cornelius Coman from Germany.  This impressive blending of state of the art LED technology and brute paleolethic force recently won first prize in DesignBoom’s Intelligent Hand competition.  Completely waterproof, bring it along for your next camping trip or slam it into your kitchen cabinet, either way your gonna look great doing it.

He stenciled 30 ft. across the steps of Nelson’s Column “Designated Riot Area” in broad day light, he’s illegally installed his own “art” in the Tate, the Met, MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, and the American Museum of Natural History, and when England tried to bestow the Turner Prize on him for contemporary art he spray painted “Mind the Crap” endlessly along the Tate’s main stairs in protest. The man went to Palestine and spray painted a storm of murals depicting windows to a happier place along the barrier wall of Israel to display the unfair and inhumane treatment of the Palestinians.  Simply put, the man is a legend.

El niño de las Pinturas

Or, The Kid in the Pictures (or sex, or raul, as he is also known) is a graffiti artist in Granada, Spain where his work changes the landscape of the entire city.  Many view graffiti as a nuisance, an eyesore and public defamation, but in Granada the work of El Nino is regarded as cultural art.   …Continue Reading El niño de las Pinturas

The Decapitator

Ahhh had to, love the Decapitator.

Aakash Nihalani

Came across Aakash Nihalani awhile ago but just recently saw these collabs with posterboy.  I don’t know why I get so turned on by geometry and duct tape but something about those neon colors glaring on scummy walls hits me.  Check out his website and gallery, great stuff.
