  • Pure Evil Meets M-City

    From Wooster Collective: I went to the Independent Arts festival in Belgium and hooked up with M-City from near Gdansk, Poland… they had HUNDREDS of HUGE stencils and made a bunch of incredible pieces there, before they drove off to paint Berlin… I was astonished at how good they were and at how much work they put into what they do… Really really impressed.. and we also had a manic session on Polish vodka and did some painting together and swapped artwork… life is sweet…” Here.

  • Judge Overturns New York City's Ban on 'Graffiti Instruments'

    From Wooster Collective: It was Ecko, and Ecko alone, who backed seven high school and college kids and sued the city of New York over the recent ban on possessing spray paint and fat tipped markers if you are under 21 years old. The results? Yesterday a federal judge ruled in favor of Ecko’s seven kids and overturned the city ruling, forcing the city to stop enforcing the ban. Congratulations and respect to Marc Ecko and the seven kids who took on the city. Nice one indeed. Here.

  • Docteur Gecko and the Bus Shelters

    From Wooster Collective: This is by far one of our favorite culture jam projects we’ve seen to date: Three years ago, Docteur Gecko found a new way for ‘hacking’ advertising that you find in bus shelters around the world. What’s unique about what Gecko does is that his modifications can only be seen during the night when the city lights the shelters. However, during daytime the ad modified seems to be untouched. Here.

  • Super 7 Magazine

    From Supertouch: It’s been out for a minute, but before it’s gone be sure to pick up the latest issue of Jux sister-in-arms publication & toy culture authority Super 7 magazine featuring a cover story on the latest KAWS x Pushead toy and interviews with both artists. Few people on this planet know as much about the frighteningly obsessive world of “adult” toys as Bryan Flynn & Mark Nagata, but they both seem to hold down day jobs and mate on a regular basis, elevating them a lofty notch above the strata of shut-in D&D fanatics.

  • Bob's Big Boy

    From Dave Silva, Wooster Collective: “I have dedicated my miserable life to creating these 10 inch monstrosities. I have over 27 variations that continue to grow. I just recently finished a Sleestak Bob. They basically are resin casts of a Bob’s Big Boy restaurant bank that a friend bought for me a long time ago.(He said it looked like me when I was in Grade school). I cast them and customized them myself. Started of with all 4 band members of KISS and evolved into everything from DEVO-Bob to Osama Bob-Laden. I have a small showing of them here in Orange County ,Ca this month through June at the Kitsch Bar in Costa Mesa” Here.
