Booker/Read More Books/Reader/Boans/Oye Crushing New Orleans

For the past couple of weeks, the writer Read More Books has been absolutely crushing New Orleans. Here are a couple photos from Anthonyturducken and Skeletonkrewe who are both based down in Louisiana. Booker’s energy and pace is absolutely astounding and he consistently delivers a crisp style that is always recognizable despite his various monikers. Whichever city he visits, he always makes quite an impression. Now that it seems he’s been in one place for a while, the amount of work he’s been putting out there is just exhausting to watch.

Exquisite Attention to Detail – Specter

Specter has been recently putting up some incredible hand painted posters out on the streets of New York. His mastery of paint and courage to put such remarkably well rendered pieces on the street is overwhelming. Its been a pleasure to have him contributing to New York’s scene as of late. 3555195702_52e9cf59ef3669171902_999201b31c3519962387_69b77cb9783665383603_5cdd6d06e8

He also has some great prints that have been designed to reflect the work on the street at the Show and Tell Gallery and the Brooklynite Gallery

Props to Jake Dobkin for the photos

Here are some photos from an amazing two days of preparation for the Willoughby Windows Project. Beautiful photos and on point documentation from the omnipresent Luna Park and Rebecca Fuller. Check out Luna’s flickr set for the in depth coverage.

Posters in the Navajo Nation

Edit: The artist is Jetsonorama.

Hey guys, Gaia here. This is my first post on Vandalog and I really must apologize for taking so long to write an entry. I found these photos of these incredible posters apparently near Tuber City, AZ in the Navajo Nation on the photostream of Yote. I was most struck by their remote location and the trust the artist had that someone would chance upon them who was attentive and appreciative. I think Yote’s documentation of these pieces affirms such determination. Unfortunately I cannot credit the artist because I have no idea who put them up, but thank you anyways.

Alex Hornest at Galeria Thomas Cohn

This is a guest post by Elisa Carmichael. Elisa also writes for Slamxhype and works at The Carmichael Gallery.

You may know Brazilian artist Alex Hornest better as Onesto, the name he first used when painting on the streets with Os Gemeos and Vitche over a decade ago. Alex tends to use his real name in gallery shows these days, where he displays his amazing sculpture, canvas, and mixed media work. His next solo show opens in Sao Paulo on July 4th at Galeria Thomas Cohn. Judging by the flyer and what he’s done in the past, this is a show worth paying attention to.


While it’s tough to understand if you don’t speak Portuguese, the clip video below is definitely worth a watch to learn more about Alex. The interview is interspersed with clips of him painting a street piece as well as examples of other work around Sao Paulo.
Alex is also featured in this month’s issue of Juxtapoz.
