I’m especially excited to see what Just and Vermibus make for this show. Just is one of the great contemporary graffiti photographers, and Vermibus has done some absolutely killer ad disruptions. Luckily, Open Walls Gallery have sent over this preview of a piece by Vermibus…
German graffiti writer Just has been both a painter and photographer of street art and graffiti for over a decade. In this video, Just gives a little tutorial on how to use a fire extinguisher to uh… paint.
If you looked at Vandalog this week, you’d think it was a slow week in street art. That’s not so, but I’ve been locked down working on Up Close and Personal (opening pics here). So here’s some of what I missed covering this week:
This post at Brooklyn Street Art has the info on a number of shows that are opening or have opened recently (Hellbent and John Breiner in Brooklyn, Matt Siren in NYC, Chicago street artists in Chicago, Ad Hoc Art’s show at New Puppy Gallery in LA, Specter at Pawn Works in Chicago and The London Police in Denver).
Gaia has put up one of my favorite pieces from him ever, and has a show opening with the talented Nanook next week in Baltimore. My Love For You’s post on all that is pretty much exactly what I would have posted.
Graffiti and street artists would not have the same global community they are fortunate to have today if it weren’t for all the great photographers out there documenting their every move and sharing what they snap with the rest of the world. I think we sometimes take for granted how important a good photo is in commemorating a great mural, wheat paste or installation.
German photographer Just has given us ten years worth of amazing photos of some of the best in the scene. It’s nice to see his hard work recognized. If you’re in Berlin tonight, make sure to check out the opening of his exhibit of artist portraits and street art photos at ATM Gallery. And take lots of pictures!
