Labrona sent over some photos from his time in Miami last month, including some collaborations (with Omen and Five), work by his friends (Miss Me and Kin), and the latest En Masse wall. En Masse is a collaborative project based in Montreal where artists draw together in black and white, similar to the American project Paint It Now.

Spending a few days in NYC, so this is a bit late, but here it is…
- Sounds like Supreme will be doing a Basquiat line soon.
- There’s a Kickstarter project worth checking out with the goal of making a film about street art in Chile.
- Daryll Peirce has done his first print with 1xRun.
- MOMO has a book out with Studiocromie.
- I love this new wall from Jade.
- A great piece of (I think) contemporary train graffiti.
- Egyptian photographers and street artists have put together an expansive book of revolutionary graffiti and street art. Read about it here, and read it online here.
- Ron English, Bigfoot and others have work in this upcoming charity auction in New York for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

I’m headed to Nuart next week, so expect updates to be sporadic any maybe Nuart-focused. Should be a great festival. Here’s what I missed this week:
- Labrona, Roadsworth and some other top Canadians will be showing together in Toronto this weekend.
- This beautiful mural is by Theis Wendt, Simon Hjermind Jensen, Anders Schmidt and Silas Inoue.
- Roid goes black and white.
- Like Andy Warhol Foundation and Jean-Michel Basquiat’s estate, the Keith Haring Foundation is going to stop authenticating Haring’s work.
- Invader goes underwater with Jason deCaires Taylor.
- This still life has to be one of Aryz’ best walls yet.
- BSA has some great Occupy-related signs and street art.
- Speaking of protest art, some revolutionary graffiti and street art was recently painted over in Egypt and that’s been causing quite a stir, with Egypt’s prime minister backing the artists and even calling for more revolutionary graffiti.
- And back to NYC for more protest art. This time it’s some fantastic fake advertising for the fine services of the NYPD, which of course the NYPD is not happy about… Luckily I hear that at least one of these posters was saved by a fan.
- What do people think about this work from ABOVE pointing out the 24% unemployment in Spain? A mural that simply points out such a depressing fact without any obvious rage or anything behind it seems to me like it’s doing practically the opposite of what murals should do, but maybe it’s a good way of making that fact more known. Thoughts?

Overunder and Labrona were recently in Chicago for a mural project with Pawn Works (more info on that side of their trip soon), but they also had some fun installing less sanctioned work while in town. Here are a few of the pieces they put up:Photos | Tags: labrona, overunder, pawn works

While traveling from The Painted Desert Project (covered here, here and here) to Reno, Labrona and Overunder painted elsewhere around Nevada. Here’s some of what they did after the jump Read the rest of this article »Category: Photos | Tags: labrona, overunder
This is post #3 and in our series about The Painted Desert Project. You can see posts 1 and 2 here and here. The first round of The Painted Desert Project took place last month in the Navajo Nation and was an effort by Jetsonorama and Yote to use art to help improve the local economy. Gaia, Overunder, Doodles, Labrona, Jetsonorama, Tom Greyeyes and Breeze put up art as part of this round of the project, and there will be at least one more group of artists visiting in the future. After the jump, we have photos of work by Jetsonorama, Breeze, Gaia, Labrona and Doodles, as well as a couple of shots of Jetsonorama of the artists at work and play… Read the rest of this article »Category: Events, Photos | Tags: gaia, labrona
Last month, Gaia, Overunder, Doodles, Labrona, Jetsonorama, Tom Greyeyes and Breeze participated in the first iteration of The Painted Desert Project, a project developed by Yote and Jetsonorama and which took place in the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona.
Of the project, Jetsonorama says:
We hoped to connect artists with vendors working along the roadside in homemade structures where food and jewelery are sold. We attempted to familiarize artists with the culture before they started painting. Because of the location of this project where large walls are few, the emphasis was on establishing a connection with the community. Both Tom Greyeyes and Breeze are Native American and came to the project already sensitized. We’d hoped to get more local youth involved in working with the artists but will have to pursue this with future iterations of the project.
As much as I enjoy the mural projects going on around the world right now, things like The Painted Desert Project are fantastic low-key but potentially impactful counterpoints to the hype and huge walls that seem to accompany more urban festivals.
Jetsonorama is a talented photographer who took some spectacular photos of the artists at work and of the finished walls and signs, so it’s going to take more than one post to show everything. After the jump, we’ll start with work by Labrona, Breeze and Overunder… Read the rest of this article »Category: Events, Featured Posts, Photos | Tags: breeze, doodles, gaia, Jetsonorama, labrona, overunder, painted desert project, tom greyeyes, yote
