Love to Vote

Lois and Clark Present: "LOVE to VOTE"

National political graffiti artist Clark Clark(en) is exhibiting paintings, drawings, and silkscreen monotypes at the Hamilton Fish Branch New York Public Library. "LOVE to VOTE" is an homage to Robert (Clark) Indiana's iconic "Love is God" design that has been parodied and ripped-off frequently in the past forty years.  "All I did was flip the 'L' upside-down and switch-a-roo with the 'V'."  For the past three years Clark(en) stenciled this adaptation across the country. 

MiniGraff Update

Just a quick note to let you know i've just finished some fresh
artwork at the CLOCK HOTEL in Surry Hills, SYDNEY. The artwork is on the ground level & features an abstract forest with little bits & pieces. It looks great & has transformed the space from an office to a lounge room!

If you're in & around MELBOURNE or SYDNEY over the next month, look out for the Running Couple. They're busy running from Koala Kong & trying not to be Chicken Feed!!

Graffiti Cops a Spray: A1one in Melbourne

Graffiti cops a spray

Fiona Scott-Norman

August 1, 2008

I suppose a time may come when graffiti is as inert and respectable as a David Williamson retrospective, but it's as likely to be in the near future as the Lygon Street Starbucks lasting past the weekend.

As an art form, graffiti has transgression and contention coded into its DNA; it's illegal, it's public, costs a packet to clean up, and it seriously pisses people off.

Dozens More Flicks fm Melbourne Walls, Studios

Off to the collab painting at Stencil Fest, but took time to upload another 150 or so photos from recent wanders through Melbourne. Big thanks to Rone and Wonderlust fm Everfresh for a great bike ride through some lanes that I hadn't seen yet (and the ones that I did).

Graffiti Vandals turn Violent in LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) - One man got stabbed. Another got shot in the chest. A 6-year-old boy was temporarily blinded when he was spray-painted in the face.

And they were the lucky ones among those who have had run-ins with graffiti "crews," or gangs.

Over the past 2 1/2 years in Southern California, three people have been killed after trying to stop graffiti vandals in the act. A fourth died after being shot while watching a confrontation between crews in a park.

New Pics: Hand Stencils and the Blender

Headed out to the Grampians National Park for a few days, and found hand stencils at one of three rock art sites I visisted. Also walked around the inside of Ha-Ha's Blender space and took as many photos of the stencils that he's working on and that are on the inside walls.

Latest Melbourne/AU uploads are here.
