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.

Thiago Toes @ Polo Design Show, Pavilion Vera Cruz

by

thiago_toes01

Thiago Toes is a Brazilian artist who stepped up into the world of fine art after years of being an active graffiti writer in Sao Paolo. As a member of the legendary Vlok crew together with Finok, Nunca, Ise, Vino, Remio, Os Gemeos, and many others, Thiago brushed up his style and skills that he is these days using on canvas and murals.

Recently he participated in the fourth edition of Polo Design Show in the Pavilion Vera Cruz, São Bernardo do Campo, at Polo Design Center, collaborating with the architect Gisele Pacheco. For this installation they created a more elaborate, living concept of the traditional “white cube” style gallery space. With a tree in the center of the space that flourish white cubes to the ceiling, characteristic scent, and a custom sound system, this installation presents the artwork by triggering all the senses. Other than painting the walls and floors of the install, the artist showcased his recent canvas works as well as his latest limited edition print.

KARTEL is the brainchild of a local crew who have been pushing out Haifa’s young cultural scene for the past decade. Located next to the port in the city’s regenerating Downtown area, Kartel, a former industrial hangar, opened in mid August with Broken Fingaz’ Sex Picnic exhibition, followed by Klone ‘Second Nature’ at the last opening.

NO AD: NYC

by

Are you sick of looking at other people’s advertising they force feed you everywhere you turn? Don’t worry, these guys have got you covered, heaps of artwork from over 50 artists to nice up your area at the touch of a screen…

New York is a city of commuters. 5.5 million riders move through its expansive subway system on an average weekday. Advertisers take advantage of this huge, captive audience by bombarding everyone with commercial messages. Over the years, artists have attempted to take back this public space and our attention, but the system remains full of ads. This is why we created NO AD, a mobile app available now for FREE on iOS and Android. NO AD uses augmented reality technology to replace ads with artwork in realtime through your mobile device. The app will work with dozens of common ads and will be updated regularly with new content. Try it with as many ads as possible to discover lots of new art! Turn your commute into a curated art experience with NO AD.
