More and more Street Artists and Graffiti Writers find their way into the professional art world. They create a whole new market that grows with the interests of prominent buyers like Pharell or Swizz Beatz. At the same time these two worlds still seem very seperated and only a view Street-Artists are recognized by the Fine Art scene and galleries. During last years Art Basel week in Miami we met Revok, Shepard Fairey and Cleon Peterson, talked about their view on their own development and heard some interesting tips to make a career in the art world.

Activist MOBSTR has just completed the second part of his ‘THE NUMBER’ project, leaving a phone number on a sign in central London and recording the answering phone messages left by the people that called. This is the result…
Part one of the project can be seen here:
American skateboarding legend, photographer and artist, Ed Templeton, recently released “Wayward Cognitions”. While his previous publications were usually focused on a certain subject (Teenage Smokers, Teenage Kissers, Deformer, etc), the photographs in this book are randomly chosen from his archives spanning 20 years, hence the title. After regular edition that was released on November 30th 2014, and is widely available, Templeton recently released a special edition that is available directly through the publisher – UmYeahArts.com.
The special edition is limited to only 50 pieces and each of them is coming with a hard cover slip case and specially printed cover, extra printed edition page that is hand numbered by Ed Templeton, unique drawing, second edition page with image that is only in the 50 special edition books, and finally, a 8 x 10 custom signed, numbered and stamped fiber based photo print. As a fan and supporter of DIY culture, the artist created the layout and design, printed all the photographs in his darkroom, building the book himself from scratch in his home studio.
Every winter the advocates and artists of RVCA gather on the shores of Oahu to skate, surf and paint. Dubbed RVCAloha, the 2014 edition had RVCA and POW! WOW! painting a new mural at the Keolu Skatepark in Kailua, Hawaii. Battling intermittent showers and the harsh Hawaiian sun, Dmote and Soul completed a stunning piece of art complete with volcanoes and cosmic dolphins.
Here’s a round-up of some of the action of 2014:
Ludo – The Chaos Theory – Filmed in Bangkok, the film shows a week, Ludo’s kind of week; fully emerged in Bangkok chaos.
Ludo explains: “Thailand’s capital was an obvious choice to hit for many reasons. First because the city is not over saturated at all with art on walls. That makes a new interesting place to discover and a virgin land to cover. It’s also a new kind of interaction because people there doesn’t get the idea that you don’t sell anything while covering a wall with a poster… Then the second reason is the endless chaos. The unlimited mix of noises, smells, colors,….is first of all incredibly inspiring, but also makes you reconsider some preconceived ideas you had. The city is an incredible playground. Disorder creates order or order motivates our disorganization.
This video filmed in may 2014 was created to be part of my London show at Lazarides Gallery later in the year, as a key to push the global ‘Chaos Theory’ concept and the butterfly [effect] concept.”
