WALL\THERAPY is a mural event in Rochester, NY being put together by, Dr. Ian Wilson and The Synthesis Collaborative, the same people who organized last year’s Visual Intervention. This year, artists from Rochester and around the world will be painting as part of WALL\THERAPY: Faith47, DALeast, Ben Eine, Liqen, Case, ROA, Cern, St. Monci, Mr. Prvrt, Thievin’ Stephen, How & Nosm and Siloette.
The murals will be painted July 20th-27th, so that might be a fun time to visit Rochester.

Andreas von Chrzanowski aka Case has his latest solo show coming up later this month in London with Shea&Ziegler at The Gallery in Mayfair (99 Mount Street). Mayfair Lady opens on June 21st and runs through the 30th. Should be well worth checking out. It will be Case’s first solo show in London in over 2 years.

This tribute to the Egyptian activist and rapper Khaled Said — brutally beaten to death in June 2010 and posthumously awarded the Human Rights Award 2011 this week — was just painted on two original pieces of the Berlin Wall by Andreas von Chrzanowski aka CASE, a founding member of the renowned graffiti crew Ma’Claim. It will soon be placed at Berlin’s Freedom Park on the banks of the river Spree. Next month, CASE will again paint the portrait in Khaled Said’s home town Alexandria, as part of a project with the Goethe Institute.
On July 21, Moniker will be opening a show at Blackhall Studios in Shoreditch entitled Gossip Well Told. Featuring the likes of artists Swoon, Eine, Dabs and Myla, Case and Herakut. There will also be some great street art photos from Cheryl Dunn that I am really looking forward to seeing as well. Below is one of her photos from the Twist/Barry McGee mural on Houston Street in New York City.

On now around Portsmouth, New Hampshire and at the Portsmouth Museum of Art is Street aka Museum, a show of indoor and outdoor work by street artists curated by Beau Basse from LeBasse Projects. The line up is Bumblebee, Herakut, Shark Toof, Alexandros Vasmoulakis and Case aka Andreas von Chrzanowski. The show is open now through September 11th. I recently posted a link to some of the murals that are part of this show, but here’s some work the indoor and outdoor work that wasn’t included in that last post…

Freshman year is almost over and soon I’ll be leaving Philadelphia for NYC and London (just for the summer though). And yet, I still have finals to study for, so I didn’t get time to write about these things…
- Matt Small’s first LA solo show opened this week.
- Juxtapoz visited Deuce 7′s studio.
- I did a little interview for my friends at Primary Flight, but Anthony Lister’s answers to the same questions are much better.
- Ricky-Lee Gordon aka Freddy Sam painting in Woodstock, South Africa.
- If you are interested in buffing or Escif, you need to hear this story.
- Herakut, Bumblebee, Case and others at LeBasse Projects.
- A fantastic project from Liqen.

So, I like to procrastinate. This week, I didn’t get to post everything I wanted to here because I was catching up on homework. I spent 12 hours on trains and buses last weekend, and didn’t get a single piece of homework done. Because of that, I haven’t been able to write about everything awesome in street art this week, but other people did:
- Unurth had some fantastic posts this week: It looks like Swoon was in New Orleans, and Zilda has put up some beautiful wheatpastes in Brittany.
- Also from Swoon, here’s some photos of work by her and C215 in Venice.
- Similarly, Target posted some photos this week that you have to check out: Bruno Santinho’s placement is spot-on, and of course there’s Vhils’ wall for Nuart.
- The Ma’Claim crew (Rusk, Tasso, Case and Akut) are in LA right now painting. Haven’t seen any pictures yet though. And if you’re in LA, they’ve be doing some live painting followed by a talk on Saturday. Sour Harvest has the details on all that.
- Dran, Bom.K and Sowat have been up to some craziness in Spain.
- Steph mentioned that Ron English has a massive show on in NYC right now called Status Factory, but I just want to remind everyone to check out the sculptures from that show. For me, some of the most interesting work Ron has done indoors. And to check out the entire show, of course Arrested Motion has the photos you want.
- Jenny Holzer (one of the original street artists from way before I was born) has made some sneakers with Keds to support The Whitney. They’re out of a lot of sizes on the Keds website, but Bloomingdales.com seems to have a slightly better selection. Still, both sites are out of low-top black ones in my size, so if anybody has that in a 9, let me know.
- Ross Morrison has been posting some stunning portraits of urban and street artists.
- Sickboy and Shepard both have some new books (actually Shepard’s is an updated version of his recent Arktip magazine). Shepard’s looks nice and I like Sickboy, but I’m not sure I need a whole book from him just yet.
- Quel Beast has his first solo show coming up on October 9th. Andrew Michael Ford is putting the show on at King’s Country Bar in Brooklyn. Should definitely be worth checking out. It’s always interesting to see how street artists bring their work indoors for the first time.
- Nolionsinengland has photographed two awesome rollers: Mighty Mo & Gold Peg right next to Village Underground and Type with a sort of ESPO tribute roller I guess.

Very Nearly Almost‘s 11th issue hits shelves this month, and so next week they’ve got a launch party for the magazine. Should be good fun. This issue’s cover artist is the UK’s INSA, and other artists from around the world are featured inside. In fact, make sure to pick up this issue of magazine because it’s where you can read an interview that I did with Case earlier this year. Plus they’ve got the legendary Mike Giant, the super-cool photographer Ruedione and one of my personal favorite artists, Gaia. Hope to see you at the launch.Art News | Tags: case, gaia, insa, mike giant, very nearly almost
