Beau Stanton – Studio Visit

VNA exclusive! Here’s a sneak peek at Brooklyn-based artist Beau Stanton’s studio ahead of his latest show with Logan Hicks in New York, ‘Calm Before The Storm’, curated by Lori Zimmer and Natalie Kates. In his own words, Beau tells us a little bit about each image…


1) The large glass palette where I mix up a specific range of colors for each painting. This streamlines my painting process while also allowing me to strategize the overall color key that the painting will take on in the end. I buy a lot of my paint from a colorist in Brooklyn named Robert Doak who works with rare pigments that you can’t find anywhere else.

Daze – Studio Visit

Chris ‘Daze’ Ellis is something of a legend. Part and parcel of the wave of graffiti that reached out to a million youths all over the world through the medium of graffiti magazines, movies and books, he’s one man that can certainly walk the wall-talk. There’s not many interviews with anyone that’s picked up a spray-can where we don’t talk about Style Wars and Subway Art, so here’s a few words from a true school, humble pioneer.

Lazarides print studio in Wapping, East London…

A couple of weeks ago VNA was offered the chance to go check out a new fancy print studio in the fairly fancy area of Wapping in the east end of London. This is the new Lazarides print spot, where all sorts of wierd and wonderfull printing goes down. Apparently this is where the small run prints and special hand finished prints will be produced for Laz and The Outsiders.

At the time of our visit, the action was centered on a new print edition by Ron English and the signing of a new print by Conor Harrington. The space is pretty spectacular, in an old factory building right on the river Thames. Even more spectacular than that was the storage room with its rows upon rows of classic prints by some of the Laz regulars. Ooooh the temptation to roll up a print and pass it off as my third leg.

Heres some pictures for your eyes…
