Banksy Does Origami

March 21, 2012

Christopher Jobson

A new Banksy piece popped up yesterday in the UK featuring an adeptly stenciled origami crane snagging a goldfish from a small canal. While the work has yet to appear on the artist’s website for positive verification, Street Art News seems to think it’s the real deal. Photos by the lonely villein. (via juxtapoz)

'Before I Die' Comes to Chicago

March 11, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Artist Candy Chang has teamed up with the Chicago Urban Art Society and youth-run art gallery Good News Only to bring her interactive public art project Before I Die (previously) to various Chicago neighborhoods. Passersby are confronted with a spray painted canvas bearing the repeated prompt “Before I die…” and can use provided chalk to complete the sentence, creating a public space for spontaneously shared dreams, hopes, fears and aspirations. The piece was installed yesterday in Edgewater and will be making stops in Pilsen, Wicker Park, Chinatown and elsewhere. You can follow the works progress at Before I Die Chi, and if you have a site where the piece can be installed you should get in touch.

Update: Wow, just two days later:

A number of jaw-dropping stencil works from the past few months by French artist Christian Guémy aka C215 seen on the streets of Barcelona and Berlin. C215 has been an active street artist for over 20 years, his first stencils going up around 2006 and according to Street Art London his daughter is now following in his footsteps making her own 2 layer stencils. See much more on Flickr. (via antonia schulz)

Dan Bergeron: Face of the City

February 16, 2012

Christopher Jobson

In his Face of the City series, Toronto-based artist Dan Bergeron (aka Fauxreel) examines the identity of cities by juxtaposing the “abrasive charm found in the distressed surfaces of modern cities with the intimate familiarity of the prominent features of the human face”. Love the killer placement of that first paste-up. See many more portraits via his website. (via juxtapoz)

Poster Cred Sticker Installations

February 15, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Poster Cred is an ongoing project by Seattle-based designer Joseph King that attempts to poke fun of the implicit credibility suggested by designers who photograph themselves holding posters for marketing purposes. You can participate in the project by requesting stickers via the Poster Cred page, and photos of the stickers in action have come back from all over the world. Definitely see the entire gallery, some of these are pretty fun. (via lustik)
