Street animators Blu‘s new video “Big Bang. Big Boom.” The story from the Big Bang to the nuclear armageddon.
Back in 2009, I mentioned that the famous Berlin Wall graffiti Brothers’ Kiss was destroyed during restoration work on the The Wall. The artist, Dmitri Vrubel, vowed to recreate it, but in a new form. My friend John, recently got back from Berlin and happened to photograph the new Brothers’ Kiss.
Berlin graffiti artist Sweza has created an interesting take on street art. Since graffiti frequently gets buffed, Sweza has started taking photos of the art before they get removed. Once they are removed, he places a QR code at that location. Using his Graffyard iPhone app, users can retrieve an image of the previous graffiti on their phones. It would be interesting if multiple images are stored for the same location, if one could use Graffyard to travel back in time and see the previous graffiti in that location. Similar to the Eric Pakurar’s Chemical Warfare Project.
Vinyl stickers for MacBooks isn’t new. Etsy lists 1075 results. Of course many of them aren’t that good, but I do like the ones that integrate the laser cut apple in a clever way, like Moses on the Mount from above.
A while back, I thought about laser etching my laptop. I thought about placing the apple in the center of the Aztec calendar. Ultimately, I decided against it because there just isn’t enough room to really show what the motif is.
Bansky is purportedly in SF. Follow Uptown Almanac for all your breaking news. Of course, when your popular, and your art is stencils, there’s a definite possibility of copy cats. So all this talk about “confirmed” is total bullshit. Still. It’s worth seeing.

What’s more interesting, is that the fabled “recluse” might have been outed.
