“What exactly is street art?” 

It is a visionary art form that is usually developed in open public areas and even though it is met with negative connotation, it offers freedom of expression. Utilizing tools as simple as spray paint, ink and markers, street artists are making an unbelievable stamp in the history of art.

Art In The Streets, will serve as an eye opener to the world, offering an array of uniquely designed graffiti and street art. the exhibition provides various sculptures, paintings, photographs and other distinctive art forms by 50 of the most dynamic street artists.

OUTSIDE IN: THE STORY OF ART IN THE STREETS

Like it or not, “Art in the Streets” was one of the most important things to happen to the art world in the last few years, and one of the biggest things ever to happen to graffiti and street art. Director Alex Stapleton takes us inside the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles’ famous exhibition.

From Shepard Fairey to Lee Quiñones, Swoon, Futura, and Mister Cartoon; from Revok to Martha Cooper, Invader and more, the show that took place from April 17-August 8, 2011, followed graffiti and street art as far back as Basquiat and even some of the gang graffiti in the 1940s and 50s in LA. Graffiti and street art are mainstays of the high art world now, and this documentary aims to show how MOCA contributed to that fact.

For the record, I thought the show was tastefully done with what highly controversial subject matter they had to work with.

Enjoy the documentary, it’s perfect for weekend 😉

.Ok, I know is bit romantic but u know when u’re not coupled then u search for d universal love especially when ur stream is spammed with love messages, cards, pics, music etc. I found this video interesting because it’s speak in one naive, gentle way. there is person that fits us perfectly, even if he is not  here in d moment or he’s here but still not aware of ur presence and intense feelings. enjoy ur day people who love and are loved, cheers with red wine from one warm house.

Kien Lam made Show Your Love, a special Valentine’s Day video that shows that love is a universal message. You may remember his around-the-world time-lapse film, Time is Nothing, that we featured recently.

Love is universal. It is blind. It transcends language. How will you show your love on Valentine’s Day?

:I just saw this simple, naive animation that covers d lyrics  that d famous Bukowski wrote and name them as blue bird. follow d poem and d animation, I really like how they make this video.  slowly, not so perfect.. but still, fair enough good to spent this 2 minutes here and enjoy. trashy paper style, easy illustration, stop motion play and d words that even if u don’t read them, somehow u recognize them.

First I share with u d poem written by Charles Bukowski then d video, enjoy. .. happy Saturday ~

There’s a bluebird in my heart

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
you.
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he’s
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
works?
you want to blow my book sales in
Europe?
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
sad.
then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do
you?

:this photography is out of d story in d video, but I like this duality that presents, it’s like d duality of d books, when u see her cover u dont recognize nothing, but when u open it, u start splitting also. .. u both read in same time, d book u & invert 🙂

.

This is very inspiring video for all d book lovers, readers, publishers, book shop owners etc. it’s just unique and first from this type I see on net. Stop motion, lots of work but magical result. All of d books that are rearranged just speaks for d love that those people share with d books.

Have u seen video like this before, with Tim’s Barton character in d beginning and all those lovely colors changing d place. Will not write more about it, it’s just to short video to write more about, but I think that they should promote this video in d schools just to show to d kids, that d books are alive and they hide wonderful stories/ universes inside, and that only trough d book we can experienced something that nothing else can offer to Us.

:from d youtube channel:

:”After organizing our bookshelf almost a year ago (http://youtu.be/zhRT-PM7vpA), my wife and I decided to take it to the next level. We spent many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto. Everything you see here can be purchased at Type Books. Grayson Matthews generously composed the beautiful, custom music. But none of it could have been done without all the volunteer hands who shelved and reshelved books all night, every night. “:

:I don’t know why but I find this dance very special, metamorphose between d old traditional singing, rhythm and d dynamic of d contemporary dance, clothes, act. .. communication via body language. the symbioses flies in d space with d voices, with d composition so oriental but  transferred/ presented so modern. Flashes, pictures that illustrated specific times, and audience that absorbs all of this like travelers on train station.

the light give a bit theatrical, chamber vibe to this whole performance, and d dynamic between d scenes, also as d whole scenario were amazing. Perfect combination of music, silence, whispers, singing, physical theater, opera etc..

is this d east trying to send positive signal from d center of d culture in Europe, Paris? – for me, in this message there was so much love, deep understanding & dialog that was typical exotic as d eastern culture itself. Playful, enjoyable, positive, hope u’ll enjoy it as I do!

I like one of d comments under d video:

Fabulous!! It brings back rea;ameoried of my many years In Iran researching their fasdcinating ceremonies and dances of mystic, tribal, courtly and urban origin.

Wonderul artists with depth of expression and technique and a great contrast with the two exceptional singer/dancers.
