Capturing An Artist At Work

Black Palace is a Mexican-based street art installation by the NY-based artist WK. This short doc on it’s installation is pretty great unto itself.

MUTO a wall-painted animation by blu

I probably have posted this before, but what can I say?  Blu has been one of my favorite filmmakers since stumbling across his work in a Chelsea Gallery.  Do yourself a favor and dig around here for more of his work.

Recommended Viewing: More BLU – Combo w/ David Ellis

My favorite film of last year was BLU’s building piece. It may well be my favorite internet viewing of all time. My stomach’s been growling for something new from him to consume. What a delight to wake up and find this on my plate.

Doodling to 10th Degree: Rinpa Eshidan

Thanks to Doodlage, last week I stumbled upon this Japanese doodling crew, Rinpa Eshidan.  Ever since I wandered into a Chelsea gallery last year and saw the work of Buenos Aires based Blu I have been hungry for more “draw over” work.

Blu and this Japanese crew go at with an exuberance that’s hard to beat.  Blu’s got more of a narrative blend and complete mindblowing silliness.  Rinpa Eshidan is more decorative, but certainly not lacking in the other departments either.  We featured them over at Bowl Of Noses last week, but you can expect to see more of them I am sure.

The Most Famous Anonymous Artist Ever


Banksy maybe becoming a bit ubiquitous (okay say that ten-times-fast), but I definitely think he makes the world a better place. (See early post here).

WebUrbanist meanwhile keeps doing damn good curating on a daily basis.  They are definitely on my list: One-Hundred-Blogs-You-Must-Subscribe-To-Before-You-Die-List.  If I was president I would add two hours to each day just so I could surf through their site.  Yesterday they started an eight part series dedicated to the unknown man.  So if you were wondering, that’s why I was in such a smiley mood.

Today (07.22.08) WebUrbanist posted part two on the stencils of Banksy.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
