Great In ’08: Asbestos Says…

December 27th, 2008 | By | No Comments »

As part of Vandalog’s “Great in ’08″ series, which will be running every day for the rest of the month. Check out previous posts here. Street artists from across the world have been given one post to give away to one artist who they feel has been doing great work recently. Today it’s Asbestos‘ turn.

Who is one artist doing really great work right now?

Asbestos: If you’re asking who I think is doing great work right now, it’s gotta be Brad Downey. He’s been doing some amazing street installations in Berlin and around Europe this year. His street magic series of films is well worth a look if you get a chance to see them (they’re not online, so you might have to find one of his screenings). There’s a playful, thoughtful and provocative intensity to his work that few other artists are achieving right now.
