Browsing through the IKEA catalogue this weekend, we came across this DIY pine dresser.  Inspired, we began hunting down more pieces like this.  As we searched we realized IKEA was not even the tip of the iceberg…

Vicious Styles Graffiti Art Class ~ Trenton, JerZey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the holidays swiftly approach, we find ourselves already running out of thoughtful, creative, and unique gift ideas for our loved ones.  So we were quite grateful to stumble upon this:  Vicious Syles Crew Graffiti Art Classes.  These classes will not only explore style, form, and technique, but will also give you a strong and necessary dose of the history behind it all.  Initially developed by Pose Two, this class will be taught by members of the Vicious Styles Crew.

We guarantee your Grandma’s cousin will not be receiving this from anyone else… or your siblings… or your parents… or YOU.  So if you want to be the coolest caroler on the block- get someone these classes!  Or just say “Merry Xmas to Me!” and call it a day.

The exhibit, closing this week, examines JURNE’s transition from large-scale graffiti to fine art.  Check out some of the featured work under the cut… (Continued)

KAWS ~ Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, the Brooklyn-based graffiti artist KAWS debuted his famous character Companion as a giant balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  We would like to congratulate KAWS on this incredible feat.  The Macy’s Parade is one of the most traditional traditions NYC has to offer and, although KAWS is a very well known artist, graffiti is still something of the underground.  Being able to insert this art form into a mainstream, cookie-cutter venue is not only something we should applaud KAWS for acheiveing, but also we should give a major kudos to the organizers for acknowledging the talent of an urban artist while furthering the message : SUPPORT THE ARTS.
