ed_templeton1

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.

POW! WOW! x RVCA – RVCAloha

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

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.”

eggs and box

Vexta has been working hard in her Brooklyn studio on an amazing new series now available on Stupid Krap. ‘Flight Cycle – Neon Memento Mori’ sees an edition of 9 hand painted and stencilled ostrich eggs in 3 different variations.

Vexta explains about the artwork: “They explore the duality and essence of life by acknowledging both death and the true freedom life can bring. The neon ‘death bird’ depicted upon the egg is both alive and dead, an affirmation of where she has come from and from where she will return. She flies free.”

Each egg measures approx 5 x 6 inches (13 x 15cm) and comes with an ornamental stand and a sturdy wooden display box with a plexi-glass window.

Phlegm new piece and new limited edition etching

phlegm01

Phlegm recently finished making his long time coming DIY limited edition release – Fight or Flight (see the video bellow). The etching will be available very soon in an edition of 100 copies, and is produced using traditional techniques by the artist himself.

After finalizing this production that he was working on for a long time between his frequent travels, Sheffield-born artist took a much needed break and visited his home town. During one of his walks through the forest, he came across this abandoned farm house that seemed like a perfect setting for his work. So, inspired with the surrounding, he came up with a new character built of leaves and branches, named Green Man. Painted with his signature black and white colors, this solitary creature is standing out in his environment by holding up this lonely brick wall in the middle of the forest.

Melbournians are invited to experience ART+MEL, an immersive two day art event without the white walls on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 November 2014.

ART+MEL is designed to bring art into the everyday, encouraging people to experience art through unique creations. An unexpected bedroom setting and floating gallery at Federation Square will display the original work of over 100 Melbourne artists, with live art courtesy of local illustrator Justine McAllister and a pop-up installation by prominent street artists Kaitlin Beckett and Matthew Dunn, and watch as they add another layer of vibrance to one of Melbourne’s infamous laneways.
