My good friend Silvio Magaglio always had a passion for printed matter. He started by documenting the fast growing graffiti scene of paris in the early 90’s, then moved on to traveling and expanding his subjects of focus. He run for a couple years the biggest screen printed zine I’ve ever owned and he’s now curating limited edition artists prints. He did a small re-run of a print I did with Horphe in 2007.

It’s been quite a while that I’m enjoying going back to Aeon’s blog. Originally from Melbourne australia, he has visited half a dozen countries of south america last year going through cities such as: Bogota, Medellin, Valparaiso, La Paz, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Quito, Districto Federal, Salvador, Banos, Belize, Sao Paolo, Sucre… just to name a few. He’s currently in the US driving thru Utah, Nevada, California ! Take a refreshing journey and scroll down the few hundreds of pictures and great stories that he’s sharing on his blog.
I deliberately didn’t choose pictures depicting graffiti because I’m sure most of you will enjoy digging thru everything to find them. Hats down to you Aeon Fly

Psyckoze is No Limit !
When I was getting into pieces around 91 he was already killing it. He is a true part of Paris’s graffiti history, he’s a mentor for dudes my generation.
For the past thirty years, he’s been continuously going to the catacombs and he has developed an amazing body of work.
Far away from the world, in a space with no time and no boundaries, in the belly of the city. Right under your foot, right under our lives.
Free, so free that he is close to a primal scream, the most natural artistic gesture. Back in the cave.
Here are some of his recent pieces, a few sculptures and his first mosaic before hanging it. Paris
The SA was done by Bando in 1984, Psy restored it
Psyckoze at work in the catacombs
There is 25 years difference between those two pieces

Lek is a long time amazing friend who’s work is very hard to describe because of the density of information that surrounds each piece produced. For almost a year he experimented and pushed things forward with Sowat and a huge list of friends in a large scale abandoned mall.

Muito Legal !! My man Horphe and his partner in crime Saeyo are both back from a month long trip in Sao Paolo, Brazil. I’m very excited to drop those three pieces here, as no one as seen ‘em yet. Be prepared for an avalanche of fresh styles from those two in the coming weeks. If you don’t know it by now, here’s a blog that should be in your bookmarks: http://www.serviceaubar.com/blog/ Horphé and the PAL crew posting pictures of life, paintings and paintings of life on a day to day basis.

The world premiere of ‘Linotype, the film’ is going to be held at Sva theater this friday and there is still tickets to grab.
Linotype is a “line casting” machine that was used from the mid 1800 to the 1960’s / 1970’s. Our generation take the computer for granted, and it’s just going to get better, but this is the ancestor of all modern screen + keyboard machines. The complexity of the mechanisms make it a beautiful object that seemed so advanced for his time and yet couldn’t be updated. Come learn where a matrix transposition took first place, why is our keyboard called qwerty and how justified text spacing was done in the age of casting type.

I came across this amazing archive of the first 15 issues of U&lc’s magazine and I’m sharing with you the link from blog.font.com
The magazine got started by Herb Lubalin and regrouped the most influencial typographer, illustrator and artists of the 1970. While some of us might not be familiar with the International Typeface Corporation, the typographic work they created is definitely embedded in our memory and lives. The publication is fresh on so many levels: from the incredibly straight forward approach of good design to the infinite attention to details and all done with a greater common sense (for one they decided to publish only advertisement that was in direct relation with the profession: printers, typographic machine makers and so on… not cigarettes, fashion or food). I present you a piece of article sampled from the second issue of the first year of publication (1972) in which Norman Mailer talks about the new and emerging graffiti culture that spreads on the walls and subways of New York. To put his article in perspective, I dug one of the reaction from a reader who bashes Mailer for his positiveness toward the “infantile defacing of public property” that they published, in a section called pros and cons, three issues later. Enjoy !
