That post felt thru the cracks, so I’m a little late on it but I’m very please to introduce you to my Sound Advice on The Worlds Best Ever. The idea of Sound Advice, if you don’t know it, is to broadcast a mix done by creative people that are not necessarily dj’s. I think it is a very intimate way to discover someone’s taste in what surrounds them on a daily basis: music. Since you’re getting the best taste in a musical genre that might not be yours all the time, you’re sure to get bangers and discover great music.
To top it all off the selection of artist is off the hook and I’m stoked to be sitting next: Scott Campbell, Ian Francis, Jerry Hsu, fellow blogger and friend Handselecta, good friend Alessandro Simonetti or the likes of Ed Templeton just to name a few… seriously the list could go on for hours since they have over 170 mixes available for download !

6:00pm - 11:00pm
X on Main
Contemporary Art Gallery
159 Main Street
World renowned Pop Surrealist and Street Artist Ron English will exhibit his first new series of photographs in 25 years. With a master’s degree in fine art photography, Ron began his career in the early 1980s as part of the Fabricated to be Photographed movement that included Cindy Sherman, Sandy Skoglund and Nic Nicosia. Many of his most famous billboard takeovers, environmental interventions and trompe l’oeil art on the street, pieces that established him as a pioneer of the global street art phenomenon were actually byproducts of his staged photography in urban environments.
In 1986 Ron traded his camera for a canvas and became one of the founders of the pop surrealist movement and has been known ever since as an oil painter and street artist.
Although never exhibited publicly as standalone pieces, Ron’s photography has always remained an integral part of his artistic process. Ron creates elaborate sets that he photographs as the bases for his paintings, and for the first time he will exhibit these studies as limited edition photographs.
Show runs through July 28th, 2013.

Your financial help is needed to fund this amazing project. Basma Hamdy & Don Karl are the curators of Walls of Freedom. For the past one and a half years they have been working on this project collaborating with 50 photographers, 30 artists and 20 authors. Since the beginning of the revolution, they have been involved in Egypt’s thriving urban art scene working closely with a network of its leading artists on mural projects, events and exhibitions. They started to work on this book in order to professionally document the Egyptian Street Art explosion. The amazing artworks of the two and a half years pieced together, tell the whole story of the Egyptian revolution.

Id like to share the current exhibition of an artist whose work and process is mesmerizing. Naturally gifted and uniquely talented with style writing and arabic calligraphy Vincent Abadie Hafez is an artist to keep your eye on. In recent years there has been a recognition of contemporary artists from the Middle East and those of Islamic origin, by acknowledging them and their history as an integral part of our collective writing and artistic history we enrich and fortify ourselves.
VINCENT ABADIE HAFEZ at David Bloch Gallery Casablanca Morocco
Cosmopolitan, the work of Vincent Abadie Hafez is the result of crossbreeding of several cultures. By 1988 under the pseudonym Zepha that he invests in the graffiti movement. It is a suburb of Paris that he began to impose his name and his team,since he will not stop…
He take place of public space and hustles certain visual habits: Just like a word written on the sand, his art is ephemeral and accessible to all.
Vincent Abadie Hafez developed a visual language and a universe in which intersect the craftsmanship of ancient civilizations, the movement of free Figuration, Abstraction lyrical and street art.
Aesthetics at the intersection of two worlds, ancient and modern, revealing a balance of instinctive feature and reflected composition in which the cosmic space collide with the small infinitely.
The hybrid configurations reveal various aspects, mixing mediums and crossbreeding techniques ... Giving Anthropomorphic totems in two dimensions, worn by erosion on which appear traces, signs and symbols calligraphic.
A breath graphic composed of wild forms inhabited of a rebellious energy, which highlights an inherent order to balance the universe, and reflected even in a supposed chaos.
Contrasts, oppositions and complementarity enrich a production of works produced in multiple formats, worn by time, memory carriers, the result of a questioning of this world seem to forget the very principles of its existence ...

New York graffiti, classic tags everywhere, kickin’ jazz soundtrack, history in the making ... awesome footage, here’s the Norwegian info (I sure can’t read it):
Det norske folks første møte med graffiti fikk man på NRK i 1975. Dokumentaren Kunst i ghettoen viser begynnelsen på graffitikulturen i New York. Programmet ble produsert av Karin Krog. Musikken er komponert og framført av Jon Christensen og Arild Andersen. Foto: Bob Daugherty.
