Firstly ola, its been a while since I posted a post on this post page thingy, festives followed by flat hunting, excuses excuses I know but . . . . 

Rolling on from Tommy D’s Mark Jenkins post and keeping it street, I want to share wit y’all a guy I stumble upon whist scouring ekosystem, which if you haven’t already wasted time loosing yourself in all its content I high recommend you don’t begin, it’s gonna take a while.

Them at ekosystem say “We like Banksy but SpY is the real master”. Quite an accolade but I might just be in agreement with them. 

He goes by the name SpY, he’s from Madrid, espagnol, his work is dope. Fact.

They are called interventions.

So so so many good ones I could have stuck on here but didn’t want to fill the screen, best you go check out his site and see them all with your own peepers. enjoy.

Banksy Movie

Yes Banksy may be so last week. And yes his work, due to really annoying hollywood twats, is extortionately expensive unless purchased over a decade ago when most people didn’t have a clue who he was. And yes the idea of a banksy film sounds ridiculous, but I’m definitely gonna go see it. ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’ looks jokes and seeing as it’s got footage of Shepard Fairey falling on his ass from some height I’m thinking it might actually be quite a cool insight into the world of the street artist without some pretentious wanker stroking his chin when talking about it. Yes that is quite a vicious post but it’s the sort of thing that really winds me up when The Guardian does an article on such things, so now I’ve got it off my chest my breathing rate has been restored to normal.

Mark Jenkins

“There is opposition, and risk, but I think that just shows that street art is the sort of frontier where the leading edge really does have to chew through the ice. And it’s good for people to remember public space is a battleground, with the government, advertisers and artists all mixing and mashing, and even now the strange cross-pollination taking place as street artists sometimes become brands, and brands camouflaging as street art creating complex hybrids or impersonators.”

A New Understanding.

Adam Neate 1

Went along to see Adam Neate‘s solo show at Elms Lesters next to John’s yard off Tottenham Court Road this afternoon. It’s a wicked little gallery and Mr. Neate is what we in the amateur art criticism world refer to as a ‘bad-ass motherfucker’.

If the name rings a bell it’s probably because just over a year ago he gave away a load of artworks (estimated value: ‘a milli’) by just leaving them in the street around London.

Adam Neate - Bad News Travels FastBad News Travels Fast (2009)

I’ve never seen a solo show of his before and to be honest some of his straight-up paintings are pretty mediocre. But the mixed media numbers that use spray-paint, sculpted cardboard and some ‘found object’ stuff like shoes, beer cans and newspapers are off the hizzle. Bad News Travels Fast was a personal favourite, but his Virgin Mary in transparent, flourescent perspex was double dope, too.

Highly, highly recommended. Check some mo’ fo’ to’s on the flick-her if you can’t reach.
