Vandalog began in October 2008 as the place for people to keep up to date on what’s going on with street art. Today, we focus on coverage of street art, graffiti, and viral art that you won’t get anywhere else. Stories on Vandalog are analytical, opinionated, investigative, exclusive, under-reported, and sometimes a bit overly-intellectual. We also have an online shop.

Caroline Caldwell – Contributing Writer

Rhiannon Platt – Contributing Writer
From the first day that Rhiannon saw a Gaia piece while sitting in her dorm in Virginia, uncommissioned public art has consumed her time. Growing up in West Virginia, she looked to blogs such as Wooster Collective until she could eject herself to New York City. Since moving there in 2009, she has strived to represent the underrepresented through projects such as Fyeahwomenartists. In addition to her internet life, she curates shows, ups the punx, and slips her bike chain like it’s her job. Some of her favorite artists include: Gaia (duh), Chris Stain, Felix Gonzalez- Torres, ekg, LNY, Reverend and Nugz, John Everett Millais, Doodles, Homo Riot, and You Go Girl!.

At Vandalog, we encourage readers to comment on posts. Discussion and feedback can be great. That said, RJ does moderate the comments. The vast majority of comments do get approved quickly, but some are not. There aren’t any hard and fast rules about how comments are moderated on Vandalog, but here are some general guidelines about what will probably not get posted: excessive or unnecessary cursing, obscene personal insults, unnecessarily sexually explicit remarks, threats of violence, anything potentially libelous anything that could put Vandalog in a problematic legal situation, revealing or hints of revealing artists identities and personal insults which are irrelevant to the topic of the post. Do not unnecessarily throw in a link to your website at the end of your comment like an email signature, that’s spammy. If you post a comment and it doesn’t appear after 24 hours but you think it should, please email RJ (rj –at- vandalog dot com). Also, if you complain online (such as on Twitter, another blog or a forum) that your comment has not been published before waiting 24 hours and emailing me, that will be a violation of the guidelines and might result in none of your future comments being published. Comments will only be edited before being published if RJ gets the commenter’s approval for the change/changes.
