MAD C is an amazing German graffiti artist with a brutal style of street letters. You probably couldn’t guess that MAD C is female. And the best thing is that, everyone expects female artists to make cute stuff, but MAD C isn’t that kind of artist. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I found her Vimeo videos on […]
I’m a freelance illustrator and designer from the UK working in the realms of vector illustration, photo montage and manipulation, and mixed media. My work is influenced by contemporary graffiti and lowbrow art, along with almost anything from the natural world. As well as the great outdoors, I gain inspiration from the more bizarre world of humans. Walking around antiques shops is a favourite. It’s like a sensory overload a lot of the time.
One of the pioneers of graffiti, legendary New York artist Eric Orr is releasing these amazing Custom Clear Vinyls and labels in collaboration with Serato. Any DJ or art collector should seriously get their hands on one. He was one of the first graffiti artists to substitute typography with an icon or moniker and has collaborated with a multitude of hip hop legends, such as Afrika Bambaataa (the godfather of Hip Hop) and Jazzy Jay. He is the only artist to have collaborated with Keith Haring in the New York subway system.

Street artists NF and Lover have been getting up quite a bit lately. Here’s a recent collaboration that was spotted in the Bronx illustrating the dangers of cell phone use.
I just found Rad magazine online. It gives a overview of everything cool. The editors have not revealed themselves and have tried to give a very underground feel to it.
When three renowned Australian street artists (Meggs, Lister and Kid-zoom) all independently visited the UK in June, VNA Magazine organized a meet up and invited the guys at Itdrewitself along to film the day.
The big map of Buenos Aires that I have is covered in squiggly yellow highlighter lines marking the streets that Annette and I have walked. After a couple years of street walking (in the non-prostitute sense of the term), I began noticing a particular street artist whose style was different to anything I’d seen previously on walls.
Being female and involved in the graffiti and street art culture, the beautiful and talented Lady Pink is one of my most inspirational female artists. Born in Ecuador and raised in New York, she started writing graffiti in 1970 and was one of the only females involved in the scene at the time.
Street art and photography duo Jana and JS spray the walls of some of Europe’s best cities with their boundary-blurring work. They’ve got the art of a photo in a photo in a picture down.
Itdrewitself met-up with the guys at UK street art magazine Very Nearly Almost for this candid look behind the scenes. Five years on from their humble beginnings as a black and white photo copied zine, the fifteenth iteration of Very Nearly Almost boasts full colour spreads packed with intimate features on the biggest names in […]
