Expect next week’s link-o-rama to be a big one. It’s mid-term week at school. Speaking of school, I’m organizing an artist residency for young artists at my college. If you are between 18 and 24 and could use $350 to do something creative, I hope you’ll consider applying for the Haverford College Undergraduate Artist Residency. Here’s what has been going on this week off Vandalog:
- The Wall Street Journal followed Jeffrey Deitch around during the final day of Art in the Streets, so now you can see what a day in the life of Jeffrey Deitch is like.
- Adam Neate has a show of new work opening next week at Elms Lesters in London.
- Also in London next week is the rescheduled Meeting of Styles, organized by End of the Line.
- Great photos of great walls in Paris.
- e1000ink has some nice minimal geometric street art.
- Maybe the coolest and best piece from Living Walls Albany is this tile mosaic mural by Overunder.
- Brad Downey and Akay are at it again in Vienna.
- Some nice murals at the Galeria Urban Forms festival in Poland.
- Remember that beautiful Barry McGee piece in Sydney that we mentioned two weeks ago? That wall of tags? Turns out he wasn’t supposed to paint that, so it’s getting removed. He was meant to, and did, paint another wall, but not the wall that he tagged. Officially, this was an honest mistake and an unfortunate case of confusion on McGee’s part, but if you had a cherry picker or a scissor lift and some extra paint, how would you spend your nights?
