Babelgum has yet another street art/graffiti documentary streaming online now. Inside Outside is streaming in full on their site and features artists like Swoon, Zevs and KR. I’m not a Zevs fan myself, so I think they focus a bit too much on him, but overall it’s a great film and well worth a watch (especially since it’s free).
Last month, Zevs was arrested in Hong Kong for painting on an Armani store. Well now the authorities have spoken and ordered Zevs to pay $870,000 USD in fines! As The Art Collectors say, “If you were ever thinking of purchasing one of his works, now’s probably a good time to support.”
I’m not a big ZEVS fan myself. In fact, I’ve always found his liquidated logos pretty boring, but it’s not good to see street artists get arrested as he recently was in Hong Kong. Here’s a video interview with ZEVS from Hong Kong that talks about exactly how that arrest happened.
