Advertising is mostly ugly, distractingly noisy clutter. So why not make some improvements or at the very least some art.

Wow, the Spanish artist known as Aryz is one of my new favorites. He moves fluidly between outdoor walls, indoor canvases to graphite and into Photoshop never losing the edge that makes his work special. He’s a genuine talent. There is some highly inspirational work in his portfolio and I would imagine judging by the scale of his outdoor work that seeing it in person is quite striking.

Shepard Fairey explains his work and position in an interview with Gestalten. And yes the sticky issue of copyright does rear it’s head over the course of the interview.

Shape Anatomy is the work of Italian designer and illustrator Valerio Vittozzi. The newer work in his portfolio consists primarily of classic Roman sculpture intermingled with not-so-classic three dimensional graffiti forms. It makes for an interesting juxtaposition of forms.

Remed is originally from France but has traveled as a street artist and spent a little time on the ugly but urban art acclaimed streets of São Paulo. He has a touch of Picasso in him and is versed in several styles and mediums. You can peep his inspiring exploits in his Flickr-folio.

A little from the artist in his words:
:I discovered the art of painting in an atelier of my city, Lille, in 1995. I have worked at home for a wide, exploring various techniques on any kind of supports. After this i wanted to cross over the limit imposed by the frame. So, I ve started to interact on my environment pasting stickers, then painting my ideas, messages or “witnesses” over Lille..s walls, with the consciousness of the context my “traces” will evoluate in. On the other side of this work, i ve kept on working on canvas, always mixing text and visual, i interpret or create icons that take sens beside letters and words. That’s how i compose the canvas, as long as the ideas are being drawn, they have in them, the seed of the ones that will follow. I make rimes with colors, shapes and sounds in order to express a feeling, or the evolution of a thought…always tending to evasion, infinity, or rebirth.”

You can now check out the works created by artist Doze Green for his third solo exhibition at the Jonathan Levine Gallery website. I have always been a big fan of his work but I must admit as much as I love his original work, I am really into his recent black and white works on paper. They are more abstract but beautiful to look at and make for an interesting progression of his style. I’d kill to hang one on my wall. Maybe a print will suffice, if I can get my hands on one.

There are some really beautiful renderings happening at Gaia Street Art. The work off the street and on the street are equally as good and interesting.

A burned-out ice-cream van is among 100 works Banksy has installed at Bristol’s museum, replacing many of the museum’s regular artefacts. The reason the museum was closed was kept secret from top council officials.

Banksy said: “This is the first show I’ve ever done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off.”

Staged in the council-owned City Museum and Art Gallery, Banksy v Bristol Museum features animatronics, installations and a sensory display.

I want to go see this very badly.
