every night in august, from 11:57 until midnight, Os Gemeos will be taking over the Times Square billboards with their Midnight Moment installation Parallel Connection. so much better than a 100 foot image of kendall jenner.

more of this… KATSU scribbling a mess all over Kendall Jenner’s face.

flag

hands down the best artwork/installation/exhibition of 2014 – the white flags of the brooklyn bridge by german artists Mischa Leinkauf and Matthias Wermke. awesomeness.

Art Everywhere is a cool little project we stole from the brits, and i gotta say, besides the piss-poor choices and circa 1990’s website, it sure has turned out great. perhaps most importantly, instead of the commercial propaganda and social refuse typically displayed, art really is everywhere! please feel free to share your images in the comments section below.

and at home.

probably the best show ever put together at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archieve, Barry McGee. showing until december 9th. if your anywhere near the bay area you have got to see this show.

how to make a rainbow painting robot in four easy steps.

step 1.) arm and train every last available human on earth in an attempt to overthrow the robot army that has now enslaved all mankind.

step 2.) overthrow robot army.

step 3.) gather together an assortment of leftover bits that may be useful in creating a rainbow painting robot. note: please make sure that any/all of the parts used are not evil robot parts.

step 4.) build rainbow painting robot.

… and your done! of course if your pressed for time you could just ask Akay how he built his “Robo-Rainbow.”

last november i discovered that every pair of shoes i owned, (five to be exact, (which is pretty good for a guy right?)), had been worn through with holes in their soles. this put me in quite the predicament seeing that i was/am “unemployed,” a student, and an artist, all of which = BROKE. so i had to figure out a way to replace them all as economically as i could.  after a good long think, i finally came up with what i felt to be quite a satisfactory solution. i decided that i would only buy one pair of shoes, and since i would have just that single set to work with, they needed to go with whatever i could/would wear. in other words, they had to be white, (i know what your thinking but brown does not always work!) now i wasn’t fooling myself, no sir. i realize that buying a pair of white kicks always ends in disappointment, (i.e. they turn grey/purple/brown sooner rather than later). so instead i decided to go into the situation with a plan in mind. i would use my new shoes as a canvas of sorts, welcoming any accidental marks whatsoever as a record of my activities and experience. once the shoes had run their course, i would save them, enshrining them in a plastic case to share with the rest of the world as a work of art, (“a year in the life” if you will). there was just one problem with this plan…

Iconoclast Editions and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego have done it again! they’re now offering this new JR print for only a penny plus shipping and handling to celebrate their latest exhibit entitled, “Viva La Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape” on view from July 18, 2010 – January 2, 2011. the poster is an offset print, 24 x 18 inches in size, and captures a scene from one of JR‘s amazing outdoor projects. you can pick one up here while supplies last. now i’m not going to be the one to do it, but i think somebody should probably tell these poor people they’re giving away the farm here…

well, i was waiting for Kathy Grayson to post these pictures up over on her blog, but it appears as though she’s taking a well deserved break from the internets as of late, (that girl can blog!) perhaps she’s busy with the NADA Art Fair? so i suppose i’ll just have to step up to the spray can and write a little something myself.  here we have Kenny Scharf‘s colorful and crazy addition to the houston/bowery wall which is now being “curated” by the wonder woman of the Hole Gallery post Deitch Projects. the wall has now featured a number of artist including Angel Ortiz, (and his tribute to Keith Haring), the twins Os Gemeos, (featuring a dedication of sorts to the late, great Dash Snow), Shepard Fairey, (no comment), and the bay areas own Barry McGee and Josh Lazcano (wo0T!) it’s tough to know what’s in store next for the great wall of HoBo, but whatever it may be, rest assured it will be big, bold and ballsy, (unless Swoon comes around, than it will be just big and bold…)

you can view more pictures here, here and here.
