Asbestos - An Introduction Comments | Mar 21 2010
This is a film I made in 2009 about artist Asbestos.
Here’s a short video of the new show Banksy has on in NYC called Village Pet Store And Charcoal Grill. Its located at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village of New York City and is open as of NOW to October 31st (Halloween), Banksy’s pet store is officially open each and every daily from 10am until midnight. The space literally looks like a pet show which can be viewed through the front windows at any point of the day of night. The space is 300 square feet and can’t hold more than 20 people at any one time.
This is the first time that Banksy has used animatronics and a show with absolutely no graff. or street art techniques.
Even Roth or Ni9e. He was the on behind Graffiti Analysis has done it again with his TSA Communication project where messages are cut into stainless steal plates and placing them into their luggage while going threw security while traveling. The idea i feel is incredibly creative and progressive. It makes since that something like this, making art projects with security systems will happen. Aside from the hilarity of the project it could be a pain in the ass for the traveler experimenting with the project and the rest of the line behind you TSA Communication Project home page
If you were custom/security and came across this, would you appreciate the piece or be frusterated and annoyed at the artist?
Even Roth’s new site -> Evan-Roth.com and his blog is still the same
One of my favorite artist is Jon Burgerman, a doodler from the UK. He has been featured on Wooster Collective for his street art and is well known for his progress in contempory character design. For more check Pictoplasma. The other day while shopping in IKEA I was taken back when I saw his art work hanging in their store. It turns out that Burgerman did a poser for them. I made a point to pick it up and was plesently happy with the budget purchase. YEs.
I am really diggin’ and appreciate the scale of this peice. YE, respect.
