NEON SKULL ~ LUCA IONESCU ~ ARTPROJEKT

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

luca_ionescu

Its not everyday that a t-shirt design is released that actually inspired you to reach for your wallet, the instances between seem to, for me at least to be growing steadily further. Until now that is.

Legendary figure in the history of Skateboard art Andy Howell, has recently launch ArtsProjekt, an online platform for emerging artists to develop and sell products along side established names such as Dalek, Jim Phillips, Mars1 and many more.

Amongst other ambitious projects and ideas planned by the site, ArtsProjekts has recently produced a limited edition print with leading Australian graphic designer and master of typography Luca Ionescu. Available for next 2 weeks only.

Dorian Concept & Daedelus live after The Laneway Festival

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

OP_Dorian_v4

Now and then musical genius’ come by, and we always seem to get our grubby hands on them…

Dorian Concept – Micro Korg Master..

Dorian’s influences range from the modal-jazz of Coltrane, the later experiments of ann-arbor Resident Dabrye to the soundscapes of Oval. Dorian Concept is a twirk-noodle king, his on-the-fly improvs and quirky-key work-outs are altogether astounding with scattered drums, piercing synth laced hooks and jaw dropping bass. A self-taught pianist and somewhat of a Youtube star (his online tweaks get over 200000 hits) Dorian aka Oliver Johsnon recently had releases on labels like Kindred Spirits, Treble-O and R2 and has gotten support from the likes of Gilles Peterson and Benji B. He will rock out on the keyboard like no other during his show, the Austrian Scott Storch with more punch!

Daedelus – On a planet of his own..

Daedelus, the eccentric, electronic maestro of Ninja Tune is not your average cookie-cutter musician. One of LA’s most daring and prolific new artists, Daedelus chops and splices disparate acoustic sources into incredible works of contemporary resonance.

His trademark musicality contrasts IDM styled, left-field hip-hop cut-ups with samples from the 30s and 40s, the resulting style of honeyed melody and avant-electronics having no imitators. Daedelus’ reputation is long since established through collaborations with MF Doom, Madlib, Busdriver, Radioinactive, TTC, Mike Ladd and Taz from Sa-Ra, playing alongside Justice, DJ Assault and Two Live Crew and a guest appearance in Erykah Badu’s latest video.

The musician’s engaging live set brings much genuine dynamism to the sometimes static world of performed electronic/dance music.

No comply at 400ml Magazine !

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

I just got into a new project with a really great guy from Rio, Thiago, who invited me to do a piece on the No Comply show for the first edition of his digital magazine, about the street art and culture, and now I´m officially part of this cool project which is the 400ml magazine !

The first edition was made under the name “Graff Rio”,because of the guys envolved in the project in the first place were all from Rio de Janeiro, but since me and other people from other parts of Brazil got on board and collaborate with it, the name has been changed so that people know that what we´re doing is for everyone who likes or does street art and support the street culture.


DOWNLOAD 400ml #1.

The first edition came out with interviews with real talented guys, such as the stencil artist Venom, graffiti artist from Rio Davi, stencil and sticker artists Drao from South Brazil; articles about the biggest events that went on Rio last year like the Hutuz Rap Festival and award, which awarded the greatest talents on Brazilian Rap Music, also competitions of Streetball, Skate and Graffiti, the artists nominated were Insane, Nick and Vespa from cvcrew, the winner, chosen by the public vote; and the Meeting Of Favela, which gathered most of the brazilian graffiti artists on Rio to do a big production painting the ‘favelas’ there, and some dope photos on the Gallery section :


Venom at 400ml ( Graff Rio at the time).

So here´s some shots of the pages about the No Comply show :


Retos at 400ml Mag #1.

The second edition is out and we´re keeping the freshness on !

An interview with the graffiti artists SWK, Insane, the stencil artist Ozi, na article about the documentary about the ‘pixação’ on Rio called ” Let the world see” , plus other talents on the Gallery. Check it out !


DOWNLOAD 400ml #2.

Keep it informed!

OSGEMEOS…remember ???

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Do you guys remeber that post I did about a huge wall painted by OsGemeos, Nina, Hebert Baglione and Nunca that was painted over in gray paint by the company hired by our city mayor to ‘clean’ out the graffitis, by “accident”, they say… ???

If not, let me help to refresh your memory, the post was  “OsGemeos” …who???

So, the mayor and the S.P.’s prefecture tried to get redemption by ‘letting they paint it all over again’…and I went there to follow the process, and got to talk with most of the artists envolved in the project about it, and to shoot some nice photos of it, since I finally got a camera, so check it out !

Like someone said on that post about the “accident”…Graffiti is :

“The only way to keep the city smiling when people don´t.”

Keep smiling!
