Brandalism – Black Friday Ad Takeover – Paris COP21

Over 600 artworks critiquing the corporate takeover of the COP21 climate talks were installed in advertising spaces across Paris last night – ahead of the United Nations summit beginning this Monday.

Amidst the French state of emergency banning all public gatherings following the terrorist attacks on 13 November in Paris, the Brandalism project has worked with Parisians to insert unauthorised artworks across the city that aim to highlight the links between advertising, consumerism, fossil fuel dependency and climate change.

DMV x BC Berlin Video

The title of the show “The Wall” explains in one word the most passionate part of most urban contemporary artist today. The public wall space has been a platform to all different kinds of art forms for decades now. From Haring and Basquiat to Banksy and Kaws, thanks to diversity and quality the “Graffiti” or “Mural” art form has well established itself in the contemporary art scene. For the DMV big murals are a way to express their collective creativity and have enough room for each artist to bring in his personal style without getting cramped or overloaded.

RJ Rushmore – Viral Art

“What is more famous? Is it the Banksy stencil on the wall, or is it the photo of the Banksy stencil on the wall? The answer nowadays is the photo, obviously.” – Ian Strange, aka Kid Zoom.

3-books-Photo-by-Mike-Rushmore

In the truly digital age we live in, the internet seems to hold the answer to all things, including publishing. Vandalog’s RJ Rushmore has released his first e-book, ‘Viral Art’, designed as an evolving, interactive publication that can be commented on and updated as it progresses, much in the same way as artwork in the streets evolves and conversations develop between writers and taggers on the walls.

The-Valley-of-Horror-2012

More than just a simple history of street art, this book tackles the subject of how communication and technology have developed in sync. The release covers a broad range of topics, including the increasing reliance we have on the internet, the ways in which technology has diminished the distance between artists and ideas, the adaptations and developments of the art-form and an exploration of what lies ahead for graffiti and street art.
