BERLIN GRAFFITI ARTISTS ARE COVERING UP HATEFUL SWASTIKAS

Berlin Graffiti Artists Are Covering Up Hateful Swastikas

This group of Berlin street artists was getting tired of seeing swastika graffiti around their city. How did this group of artists respond? They fought back with love and humor. The movement is called #PaintBack and involves transforming hateful Nazi symbols into something funny or beautiful. The project was started by street artist Ibo Omari of Die kulturellen Erben e.V.. He considers them to be neighborhood activists, so doing something about the swastika graffiti was only natural.

JAUNE’S STENCIL STREET INTERVENTIONS

Jaune’s Stencil ‘street Interventions’

The “street interventions” of Belgium-based stencil artist Jaune put sanitation workers in strange, often humorous situations on walls across the world, using the contours and features of each site for inspiration. For many, the stencil work recalls the public work of practitioners like Banksy and Blew le Rat. His specific usage of sanitation workers, however, comes from personal experience.

THE STEREO CYCLES OF SICILY: PALERMO TEENS PUMP UP THE VOLUME

The Stereo Cycles Of Sicily: Palermo Teens Pump Up The Volume

Bici Palermo Tuning – a group of teenagers from the Sicilian capital – spend anything up to €1,300 customising their bikes with car batteries and multiple speakers to develop thunderous sound systems. The police are not impressed. The competition to build the most thunderous sound system is fierce. The music they play depends on personal taste, but many choose neo-melodico, a genre from southern Italy that merges contemporary lyrics with traditional melodies. All photographs by Matteo de Mayda. Words by Cosimo Bizzarri.

The public art project aims to celebrate the diversity of the four neighborhoods of Oslo through which the river flows – Nordre Aker, Sagene, Grünerløkka and Gamle Oslo – and invite the local community to rediscover the area through the creation of an ‘art trail’ that traverses boundaries, both real and imagined. Nuart RAD will be ‘officially’ launched with a conference and series of events, film screenings and workshops this fall (exact date TBC). Spanish artist Isaac Cordal was the first artist out the traps, putting up a total of 21 miniature sculptures from Frysja in the north to Grønland in the south.
