We noticed a brand new video go up of Nemel and Geso continuing the concept of layers and layers of a tag filled wall. The work is definitely a reference to Barry McGee who in San Diego, Sydney, and New York filled entire walls with red fat cap tags, often assisted by Amaze and Nemel. Revisited during the past Art Basel Miami, Nemel and Earsnot collaborated on a wall with repeating fat cap tags that had surprising depth when experienced in person. The 12oz team was psyched to see this new video, but was let down as it’s actually a 13-minute photo slide show that leaves much to be desired. Which lead us to scour the web until finding these photos recently posted on ReppinDa415ripaj’s Flickr. Below we’ve also posted the video (which came to our attention when Bates posted it on his blog on 12ozProphet) and the accompanying description. Enjoy!
As part of a massive Wallspace Gallery project, Geso and Nemel have been doing numerous large scale productions around San Francisco in the last few weeks and this video showcases the set up of their newest wall on Bartlett in the historic Mission District that went up February 18th thru 20th, 2012.
Over the course of the weekend they brought many other associated artists out to the site to get down and start the massive planned facelift of the site.
