I created this poster to celebrate the Shooting Gallerys ninth anniversary. This gallery, located in the lovely Tenderloin, was one the first major galleries in San Francisco to show street/graffiti artists work. It is now globally known for supporting all forms of lowbrow art and its owner, Justin Giarla, has curated shows around the world. He has also opened a few new galleries in San Francisco. The posters copy simply reads, Curating the streets for nine years strong. Knowing the poster was going to be plastered on street poles and boarded up buildings throughout the city, I had it printed on Agfas Synaps paper so it could easily survive the elements (like a drunken tranny trying to rip it down). The poster may soon be available for
purchase through the gallery.
Rio de Janeiro, Brasil –
You can immediately see on first glance of lets_one’s work the level of experience he has in graffiti and illustration work. He contributes frequently on our Flickr Group and we appreciate him sharing his work immensely!
I am a graffiti writer and designer ten years…
The Simpsons has become part of modern pop culture. Even though it has not really been funny for about 10 years now. British street artist Banksy, has driven a sword into the heart of the beast with this (probably accurate) version of where the popular series comes from and how it’s produced.
Cowabunga – I think it’s time to put this series to rest. We get it. You win. Now go away.
Montreal, Canada –
123Klan is a creative studio founded in France in 1992 by Mrs klor and Scien who are currently based in Montréal, specializing in new strategies and tendencies.
They offer creative consulting, art direction, branding, illustration, toy design, character design, and conferences. They also do graffiti, drink alcohol, smoke ganja, sell drugs, knives, machine guns, uranium and kidneys, as well as many endangered pets, like koalas, seals and dolphins. (Dead or alive. Rare or “a la plancha”, depends how you like it…)
Here is a campaign they developed for Nike Mexico:
Nike Mexico invited us and 7 other artists (Joe Ledbetter, BigFoot, Jason Maloney, Jesse Reno, Morbito, Carlos Ramos and Popwhore.) to promote the grand openning of the first Nike sportswear store in mexico city. We had all to get inspired by the mexican culture as a main brief. So we have made a gangsta chicanos, a luchador wrestler and a mexican tattooed skull. These posters were paste all over the city. We were also invited there to paint an exclusive piece for the grand openning.”
Portugal – Paulo is one of those artists that we really dig. We wrote another post about some of his vector graffiti style and felt that we had to come back and show some more. Here is an untitled work that we thought was pretty great. Enjoy.
Take a look at more of Paulo’s work.
