Kick start the campaign for London’s biggest public Art Gallery

As per standard the Advertiserers are harpooning East London Street Art in a bid to make their brands look better than they really are. Who likes this? No one. Not because they spend their bucks on paying artists to paint. That’s fine. More because the work is, 99% of the time, so thin it’s transparent. You can see straight through it to a row of desks and Executives. We like it when there’s some element of the work that isn’t entirely intended to promote a financial transaction.

Speaking of transactions, and as luck would have it, our friends at Village Underground have an idea. A project. It’s called The Wall. With your help they want to make London’s biggest public art gallery. The best part is that you can be a part of it, have a look, donate a dollar, we have and we think you should consider it, perhaps even do it:

The Bigfoot Project – Kathmandu, Nepal

The Bigfoot Project – Kathmandu, Nepal from bruno levy on Vimeo.

The walls of Kathmandu are filled with political slogans. This once peaceful and serene city has been bombarded in the last several years with red Devanagari script informing political parties the time and place of the next gathering. Although political graffiti has existed for quite some time in Nepal, it really became apparent when the Maoists came into Kathmandu after ten years of guerilla war. In what seemed like overnight, city walls, not really belonging to anyone but the city became covered with communist propaganda. In a country where politics seems to still agitate the lives of the people, the red letters became replaced with new parties and new messages but always reminding the people of trouble times. In the Summer of 2011, I decided to go spend some time in this capital to try to make these walls more colorful, give new life and hopefully inspire others to express themselves in ways that seem, to me, so natural. The BigFoot Sculpture was tied to a tree in Kathmandu Durbar Square, a world heritage site. It stayed there for over a week. Peoples reactions varied from simple shock to prayer and worship.

Special thanks to all the people that helped in making this project possible. Especially Chandan Shakya, who helped build the sculpture, paint, drove me around and without his hard work this project would have never existed.

DR D – Pirates of the Coalition

Some of his very best work we feel.

Topical? Double tick. Relevant? Tick. Radical? Tick. Arresting? Double tick. Completely lacking in up own arse Street Art disappearance? Tick.

Dr D remains the genuine article – wot a legend!

Dead Leg, Best Ever, Dotmaster painting at Cordy House

Well, happy new year all crew – hope the vibes were right and you didn’t kill your parents. As 2010 commits itself to the annals of history we remember the good times – Glastonbury, Newport, Chu’s World First hand painted 3D Graffiti installation, the Whitecross Street Party… and many more moments, to many to mention. Now, 2011 shows a terrifying amount of promise. Deep in the jungle something is mutating. The natives are getting restless. So much so that Bleech, Zadok, Dotmasters and Best Ever battled abominable snow conditions to add a new lick to the front of Cordy House: Teddy Baden has also been active, dreaming of dog sausage: Meanwhile we’ve had a whole heap of bombing action inside the building as part of Don’t Watch That.tv and Trailer Park events:

PS – just watched THIS short film on dontwatchthat.tv – a brilliant piece by Director Sean Dunne about the collector with the world’s largest archive of vinyl. Do watch it.

Save ROA’s Hackney Rabbit!
