Well I’m on my way back to Philadelphia this weekend. I can’t wait to get there and back into the swing of things. Random comment about Philly: If anyone knows of any photographers who are actively documenting street art and graffiti there, please let me know. Anyway, here’s what we missed this week:
- KAWS/OriginalFake have posted images of their latest line of t-shirts. A few cool (but of course expensive as hell) designs.
- Brooklyn Street Art visited Swoon’s studio and interviewed here. And there are some big events going on at Swoon’s Konbit Shelter project in Haiti.
- SheOne had a show open in Munich this week.
- One more reason to dislike Worcester, MA: The city is forcing property owners to buff a tasteful mural that the property owners like.
- It looks like Urban Outfitters have blatantly ripped off a street artist’s design about the annoyingness of hipsters and turned it into a shirt to sell to hipsters. Hrag at Hyperallergic has some analysis, and although I don’t agree with a lot of what he says in that post, he’s always interesting.
- Shepard Fairey and Mark Mothersbaugh, the frontman for Devo, are having a show together at Subliminal Projects. It opens next week. Shepard might have some interesting work, but from what I’ve seen of Mothersbaugh’s art… Well he’s a really good musician.
- Insa has a number of prints available at Squarity. Insa fanatics will probably love them, but otherwise, they’re nothing particularly new.
- Another group is protesting Jeffrey Deitch.
