(von Mentalgassi in Berlin)
Nice 13-minutes documentary about Invader from france, one of the worlds most famous streetart artists. I like the way he buckled on his camera while installing his tiles.
This behind the scenes video shows you insights into the collaboration between french street artist JR and chinese artist Liu Bolin in the streets of NYC. In case you don´t know them, take a look at Bolins work here and JR´s project “Inside Out”!

IN THE BELLY OF A WHALE
Ein Film von Andreas Lamoth und Frederic Leitzke
Längst hat sich Berlin als eine der ersten Anlaufstellen für aufstrebende kreative Köpfe aus aller Herren Länder etabliert und ragt innerhalb Deutschlands Kunstszene deutlich heraus. Doch was zieht die junge Bohème ausgerechnet in die Kulturmetropole an der Spree? Und welche Chancen und Gefahren birgt das bestehende Überangebot auf dem Kunstmarkt?
In 12 kurzen Episoden beleuchtet IN THE BELLY OF A WHALE die unterschiedlichsten Kunstschaffenden der Stadt – Urban Artists, Grafikdesigner, Fotografen, Galeristen – und versucht das einzigartige Lebensgefühl im Bauch des Wals Berlin festzuhalten.

I think everyone from (East) Berlin knows this place at Greifswalder Str./Ostseestr.!
Great Ad Busting!
“Gestalten is proud to present the first solo show in Germany by the renowned American artist Mark Jenkins, who uses ordinary packing tape to create life-size human or animal forms. Jenkins is best known for his clever installations of these startlingly lifelike tape sculptures in urban and natural spaces as well as indoor environments such as cafeterias, toilets, and art galleries. This expert staging of his work, especially his clothed human figures, provokes various—often strong—reactions from passersby and expands his interventions into powerful performances.”
“HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD” is a very promising webbased documentation in several parts about public art! Read here about the series watch the first two parts! I will add the next parts here as soon as they are online.
HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD is a Short-Form Docuseries exploring the power of Public Art and innovation to uplift and revitalize urban communities. The Pilot Season revolves around the Arts District of Wynwood Miami, featuring an array of internationally acclaimed and locally respected Street Artists, Graffiti Writers and Muralists.
HCTN VOL 1.1 INTRODUCING THE WALLS
In the first episode of HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD the stage is set for the Wynwood Arts District. Parking lots, loading docks and factory walls are transformed into “The Wynwood Walls”. Founder Tony Goldman explains his vision for a town center, while Jeffrey Deitch, Arts Manager Meghan Coleman and Co-Curator Medvin Sobio offer their insight into the project’s significance, taking us into the present day expansion. In addition, Photographer Martha Cooper and Miami based Mural Project Primary Flight weigh in.
Participating artists: Kenny Scharf, Shepherd Fairey, Kunle Martins (Earsnot), Gaia, Shie Moreno, and Patrick McNeal from the artist collective Faile.
HCTN VOL 1.2 GAIA
Having just graduated from art school this year, Gaia is the youngest artist to join the Wynwood Walls. For the Wynwood Doors, a portrait gallery of murals within the collection, Gaia painted a mural of Henry Flagler, the powerful oil and railroad tycoon who is responsible for modern day Florida. With this, he continues a practice of implanting modernist figures into landscapes that they have drastically changed for better or worse.
