M City, Blu: Belef 09/Belgrade Summer Festival

Submitted by russell on Fri, 07/03/2009 - 03:01

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.

Green Day - East Jesus Nowhere

My good friend at Workhorse Visuals contacted me about doing an illustration for a GREEN DAY project based on lyrics from their new album, "21st Century Breakdown". I was given the song "East Jesus Nowhere" and asked to put something together based on the feelings I got from the lyrics. Recently I completed the piece for the limited edition release of the album. The work will be featured in a booklet that accompanies the cd…

Vandals target Banksy mural in Bristol
Monday, April 06, 2009, 12:55

One of Bristol's most famous graffiti murals, Banksy's Mild, Mild West in Stokes Croft, has been defaced.

A clean-up operation is underway on Monday after red paint was splattered across the giant piece of street art, one of Bristol-born Banksy's early works.
