BANKSY NEW WORKS AROUND NYC ALREADY TAKEN DOWN

Banksy New Works Around Nyc Already Taken Down

It’s been fun following all the rumors and maybes surrounding Banksy‘s new NYC street pieces after he completed the iconic Houston-Bowery Wall. That mural, was a major political statement highlighting the imprisonment of Turkish artist, Zehra Dogan, who in March 2017 was sentenced by a court in Turkey to two years and nine months in prison for merely painting a picture. But in less than a week, the Banksy rat at 14th Street and Sixth Avenue has been taken down and rumors suggest it will be sold.

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.
