NohJColey street art with movable body parts

Lamia Larkin Reader Find

By Lamia Larkin in New Art on Friday 18 March 2011

I’ve been a fan of NohJColey’s street art for sometime now, but his latest series in north Brooklyn has me so excited. Images of figures with movable body parts that you control with the help of strategically placed wires tell a story of a life filled with false consumer hopes, drug addictions, and getting caught by the cops.

Miss Cakehead Reader Find

By Miss Cakehead in Cool Travel on Thursday 23 December 2010

Street art and weather in perfect harmony is a beautiful thing. Handy, then, that these John Wayne ‘paste ups’ have appeared all over London in the midst of a serious frosty spell in the capital which has seen London’s transport grind to a halt due to a lack of gritting (oh the irony).

Large-scale street art by Alexandre Farto

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Art on Thursday 28 October 2010

Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils, is a talented Portugese artist living in London. His ‘faces’ are quite surreal, whether he displays them on metals, paper or woods. I particularly love his Scratching the Surface urban art series, where he scratches portraits directly onto decaying walls.

Exit Through The Gift Shop: a Banksy production

Ron English Reader Find

By Ron English in New Film on Tuesday 1 June 2010

Banksy is Howard Hughes, Mr. Brainwash is Charlie Chaplin and this is not a documentary about A list street artists (although they make cameos), this is a moving narrative with a real point of view. Stop talking about it; go see it, then talk about it.

New Guest Contributor: Tes One

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in New Events on Friday 21 May 2010

Tampa street artist Tes One will be writing some guest posts for Lost At E Minor over the next week, propping his favourite artists, musicians and more. Tes’ own works are impulsive snapshots, just like the superimposed sensations of a cool, urban trailer. He combines digital graphic elements with the rough language of spray and graffiti art: ‘stenciling meets painting, spray cans meet brushes, digital meets tangible. The result is an explosion of colors and shapes, which merge in unexpected visual harmony’. His new solo art show, Smooth Getaway, is on at Advanced Minority Cubicle Artspace in Vienna between May 27 – July 16.

Whether you think it’s a beautiful expression of civil disobedience/public art or a wanton act of vandalism, the cyclists who dumped thirteen gallons of paint at the busy Rosenthaler Platz in Berlin were ballsy, and they definitely made an impact with the passing traffic creating colorful lines all over the road.

Bortusk Leer’s street art

Sonya Rosendorff Reader Find

By Sonya Rosendorff in New Art on Thursday 23 April 2009

Bortusk Leer sprays cheeky fluro madness on newspapers, which in turn appear on public display around London. In this way, his carefree world of naivety becomes a form of removable graffiti art.
