Underbelly Project

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Dope project by Workhorse and PAC. Over 90 artists each taken down to an abandoned New York subway station and given one night to paint, once finished the whole thing is photographed and resealed, left for explorers of the future and the occasional transit cop patrol.

Graffiti of New York’s Past, Revived and Remade by NY Times

Thursday, October 28th, 2010


With “Joan of Arc,” at a warehouse along the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, the graffiti collective Slavery is paying homage to a 1980 work that read “Hand of Doom.”

I’m pretty excited that these are starting to pop up around NYC.

Our friends at Self Edge NYC held a little party in the LES.

So here’s what’s up.

It’s been a while since I have posted to the faithful NiceProduce blog. That’s because I’ve been busy as hell. I’ll cut the bullshit and give you all a heads up on what we’re doing at Nice HQ.

Recently, NiceProduce relocated it’s European outlet to the bright lights of New York City. In the past month or so, we’ve been busy setting up shop, working hard on the new website and getting loose. I know the international subscribers are keen on spending their own currency (since the Aussie dollar is blazing at the moment), but the US Government, while seemly tight, is a useless pile of shit when it comes to economics. Hold tight.

Last month Meggs dropped into town to show who’s boss. Plenty of parties, exhibitions and true Australian mayhem. And to the yanks who continue to ask, we’re not fucking English! Great to have you in town Meggs, hope you showed LA what’s what. Welcome back any day.

Koan just finished his recent tour of Japan with New York legend KrinkIf you didn’t catch the update, read on. By all accounts the exhibition was off the hook and our Japanese insurgence continues to grow every year. I’ll be visiting Tokyo next week to pick up where Koan left off. For my Nihongo bitches, you know where we are!

Koan is now safe and sound in the padded confines of the Melbourne HQ. Drop in and bring the man a beer.

The website is almost complete. We are taking a major overhaul of product and direction. We have been selling an amazing amount of artwork to which the artists are truly grateful. The events section will bring every major Melbourne event right to your doorstep (with directions), and our product catalogue is of the highest possible quality. We have been delaying the release for months as every time Koan and I sit down we either end up drinking too much or coming up with some crazy shit we can’t miss.

Either way… it’s worth the wait.

Currently our site has taken a back seat, mainly due to travel time and curating, but…

For those customers who have been put out by the delays, we appreciate your patience, your works are on the way.

I know you like free booze, so keep an eye on this blog in the coming weeks as we announce the next series of exhibitions in Melbourne. I will let Koan take the reigns on announcing these, but rest assured it’s true Melbourne quality.

Right, enough blabber, I hate reading, too.

Have a great Christmas, all!

Back in the Apple

I’m back in NYC for a little while working. It’s been hard for me to get out during the week, but on the weekends I get to explore. What’s better than exploring? Exploring with Sutu (NiceProduce.com designer, and the guy behind Nawlz.com). Dope.

I’ve been too busy to keep up with what’s going on, but Sutu had the hookups. The photo above is Sutu shooting the Graffiti Hall of Fame (currently up on 106th and Park Ave). I’ll show you some more details once I get the join up together. We were planning to head out to 5 Points but by the time we finished all our beer, the sun was going down, so we decided to hit up Harlem instead.

So we hit Harlem for some soul food (currently the best meal I’ve had in the city, though probably not the healthiest). Harlem was at time warp. Current fashion craze is 80′s hip-hop, Spike Lee flick, DeLaSoul and Run DMC hits. It truely has got it going on. I will go back with my camera and show you all what it’s all about.

The other 2 shot above are from a spot in China Town. Totally bombed. It’s great to be back in a city with dirty walls. Stockholm (where I live) is clean as a whistle and has a zero tolerance for graffiti. There is a law (if you can call it that) that says if there is graffiti on your walls or on the train, then it must be removed within 24 hours. While NYC is a lot cleaner than the last time I was here, there’s definitely character and the charm of it’s graffiti history on every block.

I’ll be serving more updates as time goes on. This week I’m hitting up Krink’s studio for a chat and shoot for an upcoming interview. Sneak peaks only found on Grassroots, bitches.

Peace.
