Street Art Roundup Vol 54

Street Art Roundup of Wall Murals & Urban Art

Volume 54

Presenting for your viewing pleasure Street Art Roundup volume 54 in the ongoing appreciation of the urban artists of the world.  Life seems to get increasingly complicated as we grow older, jobs become more important and more stressful, family has it’s own pressures and we can become more cynical and disillusioned with life itself.  But the simplicity of a piece of art will never change.  Like when we sit down and enjoy a great meal with great company it is easy to forget the simple pleasures and the appreciation for something beautiful.  The creation of it, is something so simple but for lack of a better word divine and we can find it everyday.  Hope you enjoy the collection 🙂

Not A Crime returns to London with Ser

Not A Crime returns to London with artist Ser

Not A Crime returns to London with new Village Underground mural and film to raise awareness of human rights abuses in Iran.

“Thousands of young people are barred from higher education in Iran because of their beliefs.  We fight this injustice through creativity and art.  Our campaign works with dozens of the world’s most prominent street artists. Enter our site to see their spectacular murals – all of which say that Education Is Not a Crime.”

Greek street artist Ser will be painting for Not A Crime in London

London (March 23, 2017) — Not A Crime, a campaign to raise awareness of human rights abuses in Iran by creating public art in cities around the world, returns to London this week with a new mural at the famed Village Underground wall on Holywell Lane in Shoreditch. The campaign works with leading artists to provoke conversations about human rights violations – particularly education apartheid against the Baha’i religious minority – in Iran.

Argiris Ser, a Greek street artist whose work appears across Greece as well as in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Cyprus, will paint the work.  Ser’s signature style will feature fantastical animals in a parallel universe who are concerned with the same universal value of education.

Greek street artist Ser will be painting for Not A Crime in London

Maziar Bahari, a former Newsweek journalist who was jailed in Iran and became the subject of Jon Stewart’s film “Rosewater”, founded Not A Crime to expose Iran’s human rights violations and put pressure on the government. Now in its third year, the campaign shines a light on the treatment of Iran’s largest religious minority, the Baha’is, who are being persecuted because of their faith. In addition to being harassed and jailed on false charges, they’re denied access to the right of higher education.
“It’s critical to understand the condition of the Baha’is is a barometer of the Iranian government’s treatment of all its people,” said Bahari, who is not a Baha’i. “In 2017, some may say we’re dealing with a more rational Iranian government because it agreed to work with other nations on the implementation of the Nuclear Deal. People can’t say Iran is changing when there is still systemic discrimination against the Bahai’s.”
Greek street artist Ser will be painting for Not A Crime in London
The Not A Crime campaign is the world’s greatest street art for human rights project – with nearly 40 murals already created around the world. Previous works have been produced in the United Kingdom, with three on the same Village Underground wall, the United States, South Africa, Brazil, India and Australia. Two-dozen of these murals were painted in New York alone between 2015 and 2016 – with 19 concentrated in Harlem.
Changing the World, One Wall at a Time will be screened this Spring in London and will showcase the artists and activists behind the Not A Crime project. Global media impressions for the project surpassed 100,000,000 people in 2016 with more than a dozen media stories and over 40,000 social media followers.

Banksy Exhibition : War Capitalism & Liberty

‘War Capitalism & Liberty’

Exhibition of works by Banksy

An exhibition of artworks by the artist known as Banksy, including original paintings, prints, sculptures and rare objects from international private collections, many of which have never been seen publicly before, will go on display for the first time in Rome’s prestigious Palazzo Cipolla museum from 24 May – 4 September 2016.

For more information see the website www.warcapitalismandliberty.org

Banksy - Kate (Andipa Gallery) War Capitalism & Liberty Exhibition

Banksy – Kate (Andipa Gallery) War Capitalism & Liberty Exhibition

This is the first time that the public will be able to see such a vast collection of original work by the artist known as Banksy, spanning his entire career, in a curated museum exhibition. With unique paintings and rare pieces brought together from international private collections from around the world, this is a groundbreaking achievement in terms of the format, scope and sheer scale of the body of work being exhibited.

War, Capitalism & Liberty will feature an extensive body of work from private international collections and examine how social and political events are viewed through the irreverent wit and artistic skill that encapsulates the career of the artist known as Banksy – from his black and white stenciled sandwich board-wearing monkeys declaring ‘Laugh now but one day we’ll be in charge’ to the unsettling image of ‘Kids on Guns’.

Conceived by Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Italia e Mediterraneo, and curated by Stefano Antonelli, Francesca Mezzano and Acoris Andipa, War, Capitalism & Liberty is a non-profit exhibition and will feature a strong educational and school-focused component with a scientific review of work by the artist.

Commenting on War, Capitalism & Liberty, Prof. Avv. Emmanuele FM Emanuele, President of Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Italia e Mediterraneo, said: “The exhibition is a far-reaching initiative, a unique platform to showcase the themes that it deals with – war, capitalism and freedom – which seem to be both the primary sources of inspiration for the artist known as Banksy, characterised by a strong component of social protest, and the most current and urgent themes defining our present times. This exhibition is the perfect and natural culmination of a path I wanted to pave through the Fondazione terzo Pilastro in order to give voice to a form of street art expression that takes art out of the museums and shifts it into everyone’s world, making it something that belongs to our daily lives.”

Banksy - Riot Cop (Andipa Gallery) War Capitalism & Liberty

Banksy – Riot Cop (Andipa Gallery) War Capitalism & Liberty

Commenting on War, Capitalism & Liberty, the show’s co-curator Acoris Andipa, an active dealer in the Banksy market who has been responsible for procuring all the artworks for the show, mainly from his private collectors who have been buying Banksy artwork with his advice since 2006, said: “This is the largest collection of work by the artist known as Banksy, a corpus of over 120 works including sculptures, stencils, and other artistic expressions, all strictly from private collectors and, therefore, absolutely not removed from the street. The work critically examines contemporary issues of war, consumerism and politics, and this is the first time a major collection of artwork by the artist, now considered the world’s best street artist, has been curated from private international collectors by an independent and important museum.”

With his roots in Bristol, the artist known as Banksy continues to have a global influence on the urban art movement and is arguably one of its most notorious artists with an anonymous persona that has captivated international audiences since the late 1990’s.

Commenting on the concepts that underpins the show, co-curator Stefano Antonelli said: “On the threshold of a world living in deep transformations, this exhibition analyses the progress of iconography and fundamental expressions of our civilization, through the work of the most controversial and popular contemporary artist and activist: an anonymous British artist who calls himself Banksy. Since the 1990s, the artist known as Banksy has used public space to express and exhibit his work, freeing the potential of graffiti and laying down a new blueprint for street art. Advances in internet technologies and image-sharing platforms have consecrated him as an idol for a new generation which has given him a worldwide fame. In the history of Western art, no other artist has managed to bring themes of this magnitude to the attention of a global audience.”

Commenting on the education aspect of the show, co-curator Francesca Mezzano said: “While generally an exhibition is a major space to distribute the cultural product for adults this show also serves as an educational arena for children.”

The artist is one of most discussed, debated and acclaimed cultural figures of our age and his media ranges from murals, sculpture, installation, painting on canvas and screen-prints to large installations and even the occasional livestock, often featuring satirical social and political commentary and often playing with the contextual aspects of the work. His artwork reveals a unique mix of humour and humanity; it is created for the masses and affords a voice for those in, and indeed outside, of society who would otherwise not be heard.

Banksy - ThinkTank (Andipa The Folco Collection) War Capitalism & Liberty

Banksy – ThinkTank (Andipa The Folco Collection) War Capitalism & Liberty

A recent example is his commentary on the refugee crisis and the after effects of Dismaland in 2015 in which a large-scale ‘bemusement’ park, brought together with other notable artists including Damien Hirst, greeted visitors of all nationalities and ages with unhelpful staff to match the most imperfect day out.

His anonymity and refusal to conform means that he is as difficult to nail down as is his artwork and, thus, a survey of his works has never been officially or unofficially exhibited in a private museum to a public audience.

Although the artist remains anonymous, he is believed to have been born in Bristol in 1974. Taking inspiration from the Bristol Underground Scene, the artist claims that his distinctive style, which combines stencil and graffiti writing, developed out of a need to quickly create large-scale works.

The artist’s first show was held in Bristol in 2000 at the Severn Shed. In 2002, he exhibited at Los Angeles’ 33 1/3 Gallery and in 2003 he was commissioned to design the cover of Blur’s ThinkTank. Today, work by the artist appears internationally – most notably, he painted nine sardonic images on the Palestinian side of the West Bank barrier. In the summer of 2009, Banksy took over the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery with an exhibition attracting over 300,000 visitors and hour-long queues. The artist has experimented with film and received an Oscar nomination for his documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop.

In 2013, Banksy held an official residency in New York titled ‘Better Out Than In’ in which he set up a street stall selling canvases for $60 USD to tourists. Understandably, many walked past not knowing that the work for sale was in fact worth tens of thousands of dollars. Only a few were lucky to buy them which, in itself, is quite ironic.

In December 2015 the artist headed to Calais where he produced a series of murals including The Son of a Migrant from Syria which chillingly depicted Steve Jobs.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The artist known as Banksy is not associated or involved in this museum show and all the artworks in this exhibition are from international private collectors.

Os Gemeos visiting Milan, Italy this April for Outside the Cube

Os Gemeos painting for “Outside the Cube” in Milan this April

Pirelli HangarBicocca presents the new public mural, Efêmero, the first large-scale in Italy by Os Gemeos, who are among the world’s most renowned contemporary artists. This work on the outer walls of Pirelli HangarBicocca, to be inaugurated on April 20, 2016, is part of the new three-year project “Outside the Cube” which will involve innovative new approaches to art in public space and a rich calendar of parallel events. The industrial site of Pirelli HangarBicocca, where in the last century trains were made, will become the ideal setting for the work of Os Gemeos and the many artists to follow.

Opens 20th of April 2016 and will be open for a year.

For more information you can check out the Pirelli HangerBiocca website.

The project at Pirelli HangarBicocca will delve deeper in to the artist’s unique universe of mysterious symbolism and alternative realities.  The works of Os Gemeos are often huge in scale, matched with their distinctive patterns and colour schemes, referencing the natural world and improvisation of São Paulo.  The project will explore the history and spectacular architectural setting of Pirelli HangarBicocca, using the site as a starting point for an iconic new production. The mural will not only be painted on the buildings facade but be incorporated into the buildings architecture. This is an ongoing theme in the artists work, to create murals that transform the facade of a building into a new structure. The project will be accompanied by a limited edition catalogue designed by the artists. The book will explore further the artists history of architectural interventions and include images of their works that have re purposed the built environment.

Curated by artist and writer Cedar Lewisohn – who has authored many publications on art, and curated the exhibition “Street Art at Tate Modern” in 2008 – the project by Os Gemeos will occupy for one year the two outer walls of Pirelli HangarBicocca’s Cubo space, covering a total area of a thousand square meters. It will also be visible from the nearby train tracks and from the street. Os Gemeos, literally meaning “the twins,” is the pseudonym of Brazilian twin brothers Gustavo and Otávio Pandolfo (b. 1974 in São Paulo). This artistic duo, whose roots are in hip-hop culture and graffiti, began in the 1980s to develop a highly sophisticated oeuvre recognizable for its dreamlike landscapes and poetic figures, drawing on a vast range of cultural, social and political references.

The three-year project “Outside the Cube”

Pirelli HangarBicocca, a cultural institution directed by Vicente Todolí and devoted to promoting contemporary art through the exhibitions of international scope presented in its indoor spaces, Navate and Shed, is expanding its borders; for the next three years, it will be dedicating a large outdoor area, some 1000 square meters, to new public art projects.

Over a three-year span, from 2016 to 2018, “Outside the Cube” project, curated by Cedar Lewisohn, will offer a rich, complex exploration of various themes through screenings of films and documentaries, public talks and readings.

Pirelli HangarBicocca’s education department will bring young people into contact with Italian and international artists, exploring their different languages and techniques, through workshops and summer camps designed for the age group of 12 to 17.

Through these activities, Pirelli HangarBicocca aims to begin a dialogue that over time, will turn the institution and its spaces into a new touchstone for developing and highlighting new artistic languages.

The “Outside the Cube” will link the phenomenon of art to the artistic languages that characterize the programming at Pirelli HangarBicocca, helping it strengthen its ties to the neighborhood.
The building of Pirelli HangarBicocca, a former train factory, is located in a district on the city fringes divided by the railway and dotted with vast former industrial lots, now occupied by creative SMEs, the University of Milano-Bicocca and other educational institutions, as well as a nursery school and shopping center.

Spontaneous works of art are already a major presence in the area, especially on the wall running along the train tracks from the Greco Pirelli station to the Sesto San Giovanni bridge. The parallel arteries of Viale Fulvio Testi and Viale Sarca, a few hundred yards from Pirelli HangarBicocca, also feature a project orchestrated by the City of Milan, in which dozens of artists were invited to personalize the light and gas meters scattered through the neighborhood.

Last year Pirelli, which shares the culture of the road, mobility and multiculturalism with Street Art, engaged this language by asking three international artists to interpret the tyre – the Brazilian Marina Zumi, the German Dome and the Russian Alexey Luka – and their works, assembled into a single installation, were hosted in the spaces of Pirelli HangarBicocca.
