What Else Is Up

In other news this month I've painted two murals for separate benefits.
One at WIN Initiative in SOHO for a creative info share called Take 5.
And another in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Bowl called Rock and Wrap It Up which is an anti poverty organization. More on that here Win4Hunger.
Good People.

Spray for Haiti : Buy Benefit Prints for UNICEF

From Joe Iurato:
"As you all know, I released a "Spray For Haiti" limited edition stencil last week. The edition sold out in less than 3 minutes of its announcement. When I announced the second round of the prints an anonymous donor promptly asked if he could purchase them all. His pledge for the 20 paintings -- $3,000. I received a confirmation from UNICEF, and just like that my goal had been exceeded. I would love to credit this person and tell you all who he is, but he asked that I not do so. So I'll honor that. And there's one more catch:

While the release is officially sold out, he asked that I send him one painting - and re-sell the remaining the 19. That said, I'm going to sell "his paintings" for original asking price of $50 each to the first 19 people who reply. The money will go directly UNICEF once again, and I hope now to bring an approximate total of over $5,000 towards disaster relief in Haiti. For more info please email Joe at joe.iurato@gmail.com

Janet Bike Girl in Paper Politics

Paper Politics is a travelling art show curated by Josh MacPhee. Paper Politics is an exhibition of politically and socially engaged printmaking. In 2005, the Seattle edition of Paper Politics opened at the Phinney Center Gallery, with work by 174 artists from the USA, Canada and around the world.

"Paper Politics presents a breathtaking tour of the many modalities of printing: relief, intaglio, lithography, silkscreen, collagraph, monotype, and photography. Most exciting is the inclusion in the show of finely crafted stencils and street printing, traditional media used to convey political thought."

Stencils at Seattle City Hostel

Jonathan Wakuda Fischer dropped off some new art (Archive update coming soon!) and a note about the Seattle City Hostel art project:

I don't know if Soule pointed you to the Seattle City Hostel Project, but both she and I stenciled our rooms we got to paint in August. There's a pretty dope website that can give you a virtual tour. Hers is #218, Mine is #206. [I noticed a few other rooms with stencils too. - R.]

M City, Blu: Belef 09/Belgrade Summer Festival

Start Time: Wednesday, July 22 at 12:00am
End Time: Wednesday, July 29 at 12:00am
Where: Belgrad
URL: Belef09

At the moment when Belgrade is facing a lack of exhibiting areas on one side and the development of alternative forms of expression through
street art of the younger generations of artists, we believe that the Belgrade Summer Festival can serve as a platform for researching the potential of pictures in public areas.
