Street artists head to Boston

Fourthwall Project in Boston has put together a show with LNY, Radical!, Tiptoe, Nanook, The Phantom, Geoff Hargadon, Zatara and Blackmath. Each artist in Street Wall will wheatpaste their work onto the gallery walls. Although the artist line up is great, the concept is the sort of thing that could really go either way and it’s impossible to say for certain. Hopefully it works out.

The Phantom Street Artist t-shirt giveaway

Last year we mentioned a print available by The Phantom Street Artist, an artist probably best known for his art on the cover of Rage Against The Machine’s album The Battle of Los Angeles. Now, a variation on that image has been put on a t-shirt through Morelworks. I’m a big fan of artists doing t-shirts (wearing my Barry McGee shirt right now), so this news was really exciting to me. The Phantom’s Art Saves Lives t-shirt is available online for $25, but Morelworks also have one shirt to give away to a lucky Vandalog reader.

HOW TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY: Just comment on this post (make sure to include your email address so you can be reached if you win), tweet a link to this post on Twitter or share a link to this post on Facebook. Do one of those things before midnight on Friday (eastern daylight time aka the time in NYC), and you will be entered in the random draw to win an Art Saves Lives shirt (in the size of your choice).

And of course, even if you don’t win, you can buy the shirt online.

Artist Highlight: The Phantom

Update: You can buy The Phantom’s first print is now available from for $125.00

I couldn’t help but laugh when RJ emailed me about posting about street artist The Phantom. Just like him my first thought was “Isn’t this the guy that created that Rage Against the Machine cover for “The Battle of Los Angeles.”” Well, yes, it is, (and yes I know who Rage is. I may be young, but I’m not that young), but he also does some really good outdoor workswork that I haven’t seen before and was not even aware of to be honest. Concentrating on the idea of outlines, shadows and social rebellion, The Phantom’s black and white pieces have a powerful impact amongst colorful tags and blank walls.

* Vandalog was sent pictures of the artist himself, but he freaks me out beyond belief. Clowns scare the crap out of me, so face paint and an upside down cross painted on someone’s forehead would go in the category of freaking me out.*
