So, this ‘artist’ is Finbarr Notte, one of LADG’s contributors. You can see more of his work on Flickr, and in case you’re curious about his formal work, you can check out his old portfolio, but be careful: Google says this site can harm your computer (!!!):

The 6emeia project by Anderson Augusto and Leonardo Delafuente was created to brighten up the streets of São Paulo, Brazil. Over the years, their painted storm drains have turned into popular tourist attractions.”

3D marketing

December 12, 2008

I have come across some truly inspireing Ideas using some fancy (but simple) 3D software to let you interact with an object using a piece of paper and a camera. I’ll let the videos speak for themself. They are in German, but you don’t have to know German to understand the awesomeness.

And

We tried that Ford Ka example  in the office. One of the guys downloaded the software to his Nokia. It works so easily, and its totally fun to interact with. Just point the camera at the paper and the car appears.

3D Fun for Everyone

Stencil genius

Ok, so this guy has been doing this stuff for years, right? So he should be good at what he does? Maybe, but no matter how long some of us will stick at something we will never be up to this standard.

Out on his own in the stencil art world, in terms of technique, C215 has produced some of the finest street art the world has seen… and he’s done it from here to Timbuktu (ok not quite but close enough!!!).

For me his pieces were some of the highlights of the recent Can Festival in Leake Street, Waterloo and worth the price of admission (if there had been one) alone.

Check out his flickr gallery to get a glimpse of the intricate stencils that this guy creates and marvel at his skill and artistry. You can also find out more about the man himself on his profile page

Stencil “Art”

June 15, 2008

The stencil graffiti artists of today seem to be more homogeneous than ever. Am I the only one that has had it up to the neck with their anti Consumerism messages?
I understand that the likes of Banksy and Adbusters has been a huge influence on the graffiti scene and to some extent in a good way. Before Banksy the graffiti scene was less politically aware. How ever today it seems there is little individual thinking going on and every little self proclaimed graffiti artist with his Volcom hoodie, Vans shoes, Independent skateboard and baggy Animal jeans are out there spraying anti consumerist stenciled slogans
Shepard Fairey created his famous Obey stencil while teaching a friend how to make stencils. He asked his friend to make a stencil from a news paper image of the French wrestler Andre the Giant. His friend refused because as a skater the wrestler was to ‘lame’. Annoyed with how narrow minded his friend was Shepard Fairey made Andre The Giant in to one of the most recognized symbols of stencil art.

In my mind art is supposed to be about breaking barriers and creating something the world has never seen before. I wish that the graffiti culture could brake out of its narrow minded homogeneous mold. Dare to be different!
