The Easter AIG Hunt

Happy Easter to all those celebrating today (and chag sameach to all those celebrating Passover as well… I don’t want any of my posts to seem exclusive!). This piece entitled “Easter AIG Hunt” from stencil artist Above seemed depressingly poignant, and made me smile a bit.

Photoshop in real life: adbusting in the Berlin subway

This has been making the blog rounds, and every time I see it, all i can think of is “cool.” call it what you want: photoshop adbusting, graffiti, street art, or what have you.

Artist credit goes to Epoxy, Mr Talion, Baveux & Kone.

Pretty Cool People Interviews: Tom 14: A different perspective on street art

I stumbled across this video the other day and it’s definitely stuck with me. Pretty Cool People Interviews Tom14, a Brazil-born Barcelona-based street artist has a unique perspective and interacts in beautiful ways with the city – his city. As he says during the interview,

“we have something to say and it’s our duty to interact with our city”

If you have the time to watch the full length of the the interview, it’s well worth it and puts things into an interesting perspective – to say the least. And if you’ve got some extra time, definitely check out some of the other interviews – well worth the time.
