Our favourite fabricator of all typography, Zeus, has been beavering away in Amsterdam working on some projects. This is his latest creation, Streetopoly, featuring a board with all the biggest players in the street art world. You can play as Kaws, Banksy, Paul Insect, Invader, Zeus, Beejoir.
The game features all the key names in the business as ‘properties’ on the board to purchase and, of course, the ever-present threat of ‘jail’ for those pursuing the more illicit activities.

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.

“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.
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.
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.
