Henrik Haven, aka Henrik Lamar travelled to Aalborg (Denmark) to shoot some of the process at WE AArt – a public art event, featuring new murals by Aryz, Alexis Diaz, Escif, Liqen, Waone and AEC of Interesni Kazki, Franco Fasoli aka Jaz, Fintan Magee, Kenor and Don John. Here are some of the shots from the set up:
Being one of the larger Danish cities, Aalborg deserves an interesting and inspiring urban space. The reality of today is that very little contemporary art enriches Aalborg – or the people living in it. Street art – public art – already exists in Denmark, and can be seen in particularly larger cities. WEAArt is, however, the first festival in Denmark to focus entirely on murals.
Henrik Haven popped over to Vilnius Street art festival to pap some of the walls over there, here’s a little round-up of some of what he saw…
First time in Vilnius, Aryz has created a mural from the scratch, without any preparatory sketch. Initially the owners of the building, a public medical centre, expressed their wishes not to have any skeletons, skulls or cigarettes in the mural, since it might be offensive to their aging clientele. However, in the end Aryz signature skeletons appeared and the mural is now a hit with elderly ladies passing by to the medical centre.
Opening to the public Friday, September 19th from 6-10pm, Inner State Gallery is proud to welcome Australian artist David “MEGGS” Hooke for his solo exhibition Spoiled Rotten. The exhibition of over 40 new paintings and sculptures explores the wondrous decay of social morality stemming from modern society’s obsession with pop culture and overindulgent materialism, and continues MEGGS’ perpetual fascination with dualism and finding beauty in tragedy.
As a precursor to a large-scale commissioned wall for La Sirene (the largest concert venue in the west of France) and Port Atlantique La Rochelle, O.Two has made a collection of ten new paintings to be exhibited in association with Winterlong Galerie in the Centre Intermonde in La Rochelle, France on Thursday, September 18th until 30th.
The original book of London graffiti. Out of print since 1976, now reissued and expanded, with new text and unseen photographs.
After 38 years out of print, Roger Perry’s unique survey of London graffiti of the mid ’70s is finally going to be available once more. Just as relevant nearly forty years on, Perry’s book is as much a cultural history of London at the time as it is a graffiti book.
