HOT TEA

March 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Work from Minneapolis street art duo HOTTEA, who decided to explore alternate avenues of guerilla art after being arrested for spray-paint graffiti. Via mplsart.com:

The HOTTEA project developed after a trip to jail, but it was also heavily inspired by past experiences: A grandmother teaching the skill of knitting, anti-gay bullying from kids at school, and, most importantly, the relationships that that were developed along the way — negative, or positive. HOTTEA explains, “The HOTTEA project embodies the similarities and differences in all of us. I wanted to base the project off an idea that had room for growth. We are always growing as people and the dynamic between people gives endless possibilities.”

Christopher Jobson

Toronto-based artist Allister Lee of Studio B.I.B. has been slowly amassing an enormous stockpile of black markers in an attempt to one day hold the world’s largest collection. To celebrate his halfway point, Lee has meticulously illustrated by hand all 500 markers currently in his collection and released it as a print. The 80-lb. gloss poster is only $40 over at Studio B.I.B. (via coolhunting)

3d Animated Graffiti by Graffiti Technica

November 28, 2010

Christopher Jobson

OK, so maybe a little over the top, but I’m loving these animated graffiti sketches from the Australian Graffiti Technica. There’s just the perfect mix of shaky camera work, lighting, and top-notch sound design to make these little 3d experiments pretty exceptional, and hey, if all graffiti trended toward enormous hover robots we’d probably spend a lot less taxpayer money on spray paint removal.
