Nothing less than VIMS! Swedens most notorious crew of all times is here participate in our VERSUS Project. As we might have expected, the format for this round is metal: A Stockholm commuter train. The spirit of ‘Vandals In Motion‘ stays alive, and just as sparkling is ‘Rojo Akari‘ (‘Akari Red’), which is the color of choice of one the members of this historic crew. Most defenitely… ‘Vandals Emotion’.

Arrive in Marrakech Morocco yesterday to prepare for the exhibition UNFOLDING with fellow Agents Of Change -Derm, Jaybo Monk, Remi Rough, LX One, Steve More, and Timid at David Bloch Gallery. So far its been a deep cultural immersion right off the plane. Its an amazing country one that heightens your senses and pulls you back in time. Visually its stunning and textured, weathered by time but beautifully finished by artisans hands. There is a strong arts and crafts culture here, it is tradition, a way of life.
Agents of Change are a collective of 12 artists who attack space. Formed in 2009, the international collective create work that responds on a site specific basis, integrating both the aesthetic and historical resonance of the environment they’re working in. Each project brings greater potential for innovation, both on a practical level in technique and on a more emotive basis in dealing with ever larger historical and political ideas.
David Bloch Gallery is located at 8 bis rue des Vieux Marrakchis, 40000 Marrakech, Morocco, and Unfolding will run from May 10 to June 8.

A mix of clips of the New York City subway system on film, mostly from the ‘70s and early ‘80s, when graffiti was a mainstay on train cars and everything underground was, for the most part, grittier and more worn than it is today. I will almost certainly be tweaking and adding more footage to this piece.

If you are in NYC and missed my talk at the Type Directors Club a few weeks ago (and like your vandalism with a bit of high brow philosophical musing), you might want to come out to Parsons next week for my lecture about the Handselecta Project and a few things I’ve learned over the last 10 years of doing this project. I will surely wax poetic about graffiti while I get philosophical, theological, and ontological about vandalism. Plus there are pretty pictures, fun anecdotes, and some never before seen videos.
After eight years of journeys around the globe, Nils Müller presents ‘Vandals’, his second book of photography after his 2009 debut publication ‘Blütezeit’.
‘Vandals’ takes the illegal and dangerous activity on 192 pages to a more personal level, one that is more detailed and yet, more abstract, too. The photos bear witness to the elaborate level of planning required to carry out the acts. They reveal team spirit as well as heightened emotions and tension, as trainwriters attempt to evade motion detectors and security cameras while scaling barbed wire fences.
For the normal version, please contact: http://www.publikat.de/212-0-Vandals.html
‘Vandals’ is divided into ten chapters. While four of them feature images of various cities such as London, Berlin and Amsterdam, each of the other six chapters focuses on a different city: Paris, Milan, Seoul, Bucharest, Caracas and New York.
Nils Müller is a former graffiti artist who taught himself photography to immortalize his work before it was cleaned up by authorities. It wasn’t long before he realized he wanted to show more than just the defacement of public structures. His photographs elevate graffiti into a sophisticated visual language that thrills both because of its illicit nature and aesthetic value.

Klughaus, in collaboration with LRG and Brisk, is excited to announce PALINGENESIS, a special pop-up exhibit in New York City’s Lower East Side featuring Gorey and Paris’ prolific PAL (Peace and Love) Crew. The group exhibition features a roster of internationally-renowned artists including GOREY, HORFE, CONY, TOMEK, SAEYO, MOSA, ESSO and SKUB.
One of the most prominent graffiti crews in Paris, PAL is united by its members’ shared love of creative expression. With GOREY as a forefather, PAL has developed a unique movement and style of graffiti that is completely its own. While there is a complicated, yet fascinating line between graffiti and fine art, the collective has made a seamless transition into the art world in a tasteful way that does not categorize the work as simply “graffiti,” yet sustains the collective’s distinct styles and energy within a gallery setting.
The PALINGENESIS exhibition will showcase the collective’s debut in the United States as well as its artistic re-birth as evolving fine artists. Gorey & PAL’s incorporation of fine art elements into their work on the streets is pushing the concept of graffiti in a new and refreshing direction and we are thrilled to collaborate on their stateside debut.
The exhibit will be on display through May 19, 2013, you can jump on vimeo to see a great video here:
