Hogwash and facts in the US

First of all, please vote. We are the adults now, and we must bring some smarts into our local governments if we ever hope to have a smarter federal government to deal with the big problems. Our lives may depend on it. In order to get there from here, we all need to be armed with facts, science, and rationality -- instead of with fear and official lies.

Italy, Milan: Oct 22, 2010: Sabe e Ghost

Venerdì 22 ottobre 2010, da Spectrum Store, a partire dalle ore 17:00, verranno presentati i due nuovi libri della collana On The Run:


Per l'occasione saranno presenti SABE e SENTO (del quale è già disponibile il libro On The Run), che oltre ad autografare i propri libri, si cimenteranno in una "live action" alla White Gallery, galleria d'arte proprio di fronte a Spectrum Store.

SENTO (TFP crew) è uno dei writer che ...hanno davvero impresso uno stile che è stato fonte di ispirazione per migliaia di writer in tutto il mondo. Da quando ha iniziato, nel 1984, si è imposto sulle metro ed i muri newyorkesi; ha dato vita ad un lettering praticamente perfetto a cui ha abbinato colorazioni innovative.

SABE (FYS Crew) è uno dei writer che ha contribuito maggiormente, grazie al suo stile autentico, alla evoluzione della scena europea dalla metà dei '90. La sua classe si riconosce a prima vista, sia su un pannello di un treno, che in hall of fame e la sua produzione è ormai incalcolabile.

GHOST (RIS crew) è uno degli ultimi trainwriter dell'era d'oro di New York. Il suo stile funky è stato, ma sopratutto è di riferimento per molti bomber. GHOST è istinto, creatività e pazzia fatta writer. Il libro a lui dedicato è un perfetto sunto di una carriera trentennale ricca di innovazione e stile impareggiabile.

Non perdete l'occasione di avere una copia del libro autografata!

Free beers, good music and really really nice people!

Carl Rauschenbach (CR) - WORKS/FIRST

Opening Reception: Saturday, Oct 23rd, 2010 at 8-11pm

Known Gallery is honored to present "WORKS/FIRST", a collection of new abstract work by Carl Rauschenbach (CR) based on a continuation of a theme he has been developing since 2004.

Referencing Sign Painting, Typography and Graffiti as a point of departure, CR reinterprets the letterform into his own abstract language and now finds himself sampling his own work to create new bold and intimate forms within the picture frame. Influences include Josef Albers from the Bauhaus (1920 - 1933) and Phase2, known as the originator of bubble letters or “softies” from New York graffiti writing in the 1970s.

CR has worked as a studio assistant for Ryan McGinness, James Marshall (Dalek) and Eric Haze, during which time he spent years of drawing and mastering the abstract style that he works in today. Rauschenbach currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Born, raised and based in Amsterdam, Meulman began tagging “Shoe” in 1979 and became a graffiti legend by the time he was 18. In the eighties, he met New York graffiti artists like Dondi, Rammellzee, Haze, Quik and Keith Haring after which he then formed the Crime Time Kings with Bando from Paris and Mode2 from London. Together, they gave graffiti in Europe its own distinctive style.

In the nineties, he furthered his technique by apprenticing under Dutch graphic design master Anthon Beeke. Shoe proceeded to run his own design company, Caulfield & Tensing, and was a partner in advertising agency Unruly, which he later turned into a brand for silk scarves.

Shoe is recognized for revolutionizing the art of writing with Calligraffiti, an art form that combines masterful calligraphy skills with the speed and attitude of graffiti. He launched this movement in 2007 with a successful solo exhibition in Amsterdam. Since then, his Calligraffiti pieces, which he signs NSM, have been presented in various international exhibitions.

In 2010, the book Calligraffiti – The Graphic Art of Niels Shoe Meulman was launched in Berlin and Shoe has since been touring to present the book and his art.

The Project Space exhibition “Calligraffiti Throw-Ups” is a new series of carbon acrylic on linen canvas works inspired by Shoe’s love for baseball, mayhem and cosmic unconsciousness.

Denmark, Copenhagen: Oct 15, 2010: Comics battle graffiti

Ny udstilling i Graffitigalleriet i København.

Fernisering i graffitigalleriet fredag den 15. oktober 2010 mellem kl. 17-21 (kulturnatten).

Endnu et mindblowing og nytænkende billedshow i i samarbejde med

GRAFFITIGALLERIET ønsker med udstillingen at stille skarpt på den særdeles udbredte brug af comic eller comic-inspirerede figurer i den New York baserede graffiti og stiller med et stærkt hold.

Fire malere, alle 'sortbælte-sprayere' udi disciplinen at bringe liv til comic-karakterer på mure og lærreder, har hver produceret fem værker på 40 x 40 cm, som exponerer noget af det ypperste indenfor figur-maling.

De fire - CRAZ, SKINY, OBEE og Mr. FRAK, har således lagt sig i selen og præsterer små genistreger med deres innovative fortolkninger af konceptet.

COMICGARDEN stiller med eye candy for  kræsne kendere såvel som måbende menigmænd - en tour de force af originale tegneseriestriber og andet guf.

Her er der mulighed for at registrere de helt grundlæggende og originale figurers æstetiske særkender og indlysende, velkendte kvaliteter.

Lige siden den forkætrede bemaling af New Yorks Subway-toge tog fart op gennem 1970erne, har figurer været fast inventar i graffiti-malerier.

Kridt danseskoene og step til GRAFFITIGALLERIET, der med dette show endnu engang markerer sig som landets mest banebrydende og originale billedhus, altid med fingeren på pulsen, altid tro og oprigtige mod gadens glade, gudsbenådede grafiske genistreger.

Se dine favorit-figurer i den mest originale form via COMICGARDENS tilskud af nye og ældre 'striber' og nyd hvordan malerne formår at klone, mutere, sample og megamixe diverse stilelementer fra figurer vi alle kender, til nye, freshe og konstant overraskende helheder!

For detailed information and completed programme:

During October and November Torino European Youth Capital 2010 will host PICTURIN FESTIVAL, the first international mural art event in Italy.

The young Italian and foreigner artists will be the protagonists of this festival and they will have to transform and retrain the walls of the city centre and the suborns with their creativity.

This event confirms the vocation of Torino as a city very oriented to the contemporary art  and the changes.

PICTURIN, supported by the Italian Youth Department, is proposed and coordinated by Murarte (a project of the Torino City Council Youth Department), Fondazione Contrada Torino Onlus and ACU (associations for the urban creativity) from Torino: Artefatti, Il Cerchio E Le Gocce and Style Orange.

Blind walls or only walls of forgotten urban buildings, places designed to advertisements will be used for the artistic intervention.

3.500 square metres of mural surface, from Palazzo Nuovo (via Verdi e Corso San Maurizio) to Lungo Dora Savona, from via Fiocchetto to Corso Taranto, from via Giachino to via Cigna, from Corso Grosseto to via Netro, from via Servais to via Don Murialdo, will be painted in one month. During this month the public could see the artist working, climbing walls to transform them in original works of  art.

PICTURIN FESTIVAL offers the opportunity to appreciate well known places and to discover uncommon corners of the city, making people enjoy the creativity of international muralists and the method used to obtain the precious work: from the performance to the work of art.

During the Festival, International well known and emerging artists will work together with different materials and methods: painting, spray, enamel and stencil.

NY, New York: October 9 - 30: Rammellzee and Pond Slide

AS IF Gallery
529 Manhattan Avenue
NW corner of 122nd Street and Manhattan Avenue
ground floor
New York, NY 10027

Opening on Saturday, October 9 from 3 to 6 pm

AS IF Gallery is pleased to announce as the second exhibition of its new gallery in Harlem, a tribute to the late artist The Ramm:ell:zee. The exhibition will consist of two works: an audio installation by Seth Tillett, culled from recordings made by Tillett with The Ramm:ell:zee in 1981. The second component will be a single work on paper from 1988, a gift by the artist to Tillett.

Seth Tillett
Pond Slide (1981/2010) - an audio installation w/ The Ramm:ell:zee

The Ramm:ell:zee. There's Gonna Be An Oil Slick (detail), 1988, mixed media on paper, 22 x 30 inches
The Equation: The Ramm:ell:zee (1960-2010)

The Ramm:ell:zee was an artist-theoretician, master mic-controller, philosopher-jester, and creator of a significant body of visual art, performance documentation and recorded music. He imparted an important set of ideas, known as Gothic Futurism/Ikonoklast Panzerism, evolving it into an incandescent theoretical engine which illuminated Hip Hop culture from within. Ramm's thought is inseparable from his artistic output, in which he both proclaimed and waged an apocalyptic battle at the core of written language.

"We created all this in the dark!" The Ramm:ell:zee

Ramm's art evolved from a wide range of influences. He drew from the near cabalistic concepts of the Five Percenters (Gods and Earths) and pored over Dictionaries, Encyclopedias and works on Mathematics, Physics, Linguistics and Calligraphy, as did his friend and colleague, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Basquiat and Rammellzee were emancipating words from their definitions, and punning them, not unlike Raymond Rousell, James Joyce or even Lewis Carroll, into fluid political and poetical slanguages. Wordplay became a deadly game.

Rammellzee created, sui generis, an ideographic system, then a unique performance form, and ultimately a series of awesome yet terrifying costumes with which to deliver it. Through a cartoon echo chamber and his 'Gangsta Duck' vocalizations, Rammell challenged authority structures built upon secret knowledge and protected definitions. This was a Wagnerian Gesamtkunst with apocalyptic implications for communication itself. Ramm was embraced by linguists, poets and post-modern literary theorists for his insistence on signification at the level of the letter. He achieved the status of a jester, shaman, oracle and sage. Ramm's thought sprang, not from the academy, but from a baroque imagination, deeply rooted in the street culture of Far Rockaway, NY.

Pond Slide originates from audio recordings I made with Rammell in 1981. Commissioned by LEI magazine of Milan, French photographer Pascal Franco and I shot hundreds of slides of Rammell, Shockdell, Melle Mel, Davey D and other Mic Controllers, free-styling in multiple locations, usually with the Rock Steady Crew break dancing in the center. When I reviewed these images with Rammellzee, I mic'd him to record his responses. With the death of Pascal Franco in the mid-nineties, these images were lost. The recordings remain.

In Pond Slide, I've attempted an audio portrait of The Ramm:ell:zee in his own words, and by extension, a portrait of one of the most refined provinces of Hip Hop culture at a crucial moment in its development.

Seth Tillett is a designer, composer and artist. Born in NYC into a family of textile makers, he has created scenography for many productions in opera and dance and has composed music and audio assemblages for the ballet and theatre as well sound works exhibited at Gallerie Écart, Genève and Gallerie Erste Privat, Berlin.

Looking For Graffiti Artists From Around the World

"I'm not a graffiti aficionado, though I did crack up in Berlin when I spotted a "no tagging" sign outside of a spray paint shop. (And it was the only clean facade on the street.) However, I have seen enough to know that the community seems under-represented ... aside from brick walls in every city everywhere.
"I'm a writer and photography fan, and I run a site called Life, Panoramic ( The idea is that, instead of seeing another collection of tourist photos, we get a very subjective view of life around the world from locals - the people who actually live in each place.
"Basically, I'd like to invite you to participate in Life, Panoramic, showing your city from your perspective (not necessarily entirely tied to graffiti, though that can be as large or small of a component as you'd like). We've had a lot of web designers, teachers, moms and marketers participate. Now, I'd love to expand our horizons to show a wider scope. Entries consist of 10-15 photos, accompanied by brief prose. Don't worry if you aren't the best photographer; just be as earnest as possible. Hope to have you there."
