Very impressive work by designer student and illustrator Francisco Dans.

Can it get more interesting? YES! He is now working on integrating the DLR and the Overground. Can`t wait to see it.

Parisian street artist Cyril Phan, best known as “Kongo”, was invited by Hermès to design a range of scarf.

The Hermes-Kongo scarf collaboration, entitled Graff, features explosively colourful designs reminiscent of Kongo’s streetwork.  It’s a perfect example of how a major high-fashion company can co-opt something as rebellious as street art to formulate a product likely to appeal to traditional fans of both brands.

Yep, High-Low is still a trend ;)

Walking around Rio don`t be surprised if you suddenly see an astonishing tile mosaic completely out of context. The so called Coletivo MUDA sees our grey city as an empty cement canvas for their art. Little by little they are turning our streets into out doors art galleries.

Rio is already a pretty city, but with the boys of MUDA around we will be prettiest then ever!

Called the “Olympics of Art,” the Venice Biennale brings together some of the best contemporary artists from around the world. But this year Venice Biennale has one of the most powerful and fun exhibits I `ve ever heard of. 

It’s an interactive installation, by the alias Norma Jeane, meant to break down and transform over time as visitors engage with it. It started as a tidy block of plasticine in late May in the colors of the Egyptian flag: black, white and red, and its title, #Jan25 (#Sidibouzid, #Feb12, #Feb14, #Feb17…) refers to some of the most popular hashtags on Twitter during recent Egyptian and Arab world uprisings. You can still see some of the block, but you can also see how complete and creative chaos have taken over the room.

Visitors are encouraged to take apart the block and, for the most part, do whatever they please, even take some of it with them, as long as they don’t leave it in another exhibit. The result is overwhelming and moving!

Lately I’m finding myself very inspired after discovering these embroidered art pieces by Argentinian artist Jazmin Berakha. Her marvelous mix of patterns and textures provides plenty of artistic inspiration, and a few new outfit ideas, too!

“Forever Marilyn”, a 26′ tall Marilyn Monroe sculpture created by Seward Johnson has been unveiled on The Magnificent Mile in Chicago. The statue imortalizes Marilyn’s famous scene in the 1955 Billy Wilder film The Seven Year Itch.

Japanese firm yoichi yamamoto architects has completed ‘2D/3D chairs’ for Tokyo fashion label Issey Miyake store. Featuring a series of traditional dining chairs, the installation transforms from a two dimensional graphic into a tangible piece. The perspective is manipulated creating a unique appearance from different vantage points for onlookers. 

Clothing items are then displayed upon the installation in a casual manner appearing as though someone tossed it onto their household furniture. Currently a collection of vibrant hats designed by akio hirata are presented to shoppers by resting upon the electric blue chair backs.

The museum of contemporary art in Los Angeles’s current exhibition ‘art in the streets’ features several customized cars as sculpture. kenny scharfkeith haring and mister cartoon contribute different takes on the concept of the personalized car pervasive in street art culture.

The exhibition also features a 1966 buick special handpainted by pop artist Keith Haring. The car is covered with the illustrations of the artist’s trademark reptilian figures and geometric patterns in orange and blue enamel. Haring once drove this car around manhattan’s lower east side. 


Art in the streets’ is on display at the geffen contemporary at MOCA, los angeles now until august 8, 2011.
