Femme Fierce Reloaded 2015 Review!

All on International Women’s Day and with 150 or so female artists participating, travelling from all over the UK, Europe and the rest of the globe, in the largest all female paint jam ever. We at London Calling Blog arrived at just after 8am in order to be there to enjoy the fun and festivities of the next eleven hours, which promised to be an exceptional event and certainly didn’t disappoint. Just Incredible, anyone who took part viewing the days events and the magic worked will agree, I am sure. Bright and early at 8am, the artists were waiting to register and receive their paint, paid for through a successful Kickstarter campaign,and get the event started.

Installed February 2015</small> It was over 80 years ago, when a coquettish, and somewhat salacious cartoon character slinked onto the silver screen, courtesy of Fleischer Studios, 1600 Broadway, New York.

Living for Love <small>Artist - Pegasus. Installed February 2015</small>

Her name was Betty Boop. Her enduring symbolism - as an independent, autonomous feminine icon - has continued to this day; the power of the caricature suddenly a resurgent token as the 21-st century struggles to find credible role models for society's leaders. Perhaps it is no coincidence that Betty Boop, a symbol of the Depression era, can communicate such simple, yet effective messaging. The appropriation of the cartoon and comic figure has evolved, through Pop Art in the 1960s, via the work of Lichenstein and Warhol, into the modern era, with street artists such as Keith Haring, and more recently the likes of Banksy, D*Face, Bambi and a legion of media-mocking urban art practitioners.

It is no coincidence that a Chicago-born, London-based street artist named Pegasus cites Warhol as an influence. Street artist captures UK wildlife in murals around London – in pictures. Why we painted over Berlin’s most famous graffiti. The sound of a megaphone shrills through the cold Berlin night air.

Why we painted over Berlin’s most famous graffiti

Some passersby yell at us in anger. Others silently wipe tears off their cheeks. “It’s the first time in my career as an artist that somebody is booing me,” says a voice next to me. We stop painting for a moment to watch the small crowd that has gathered on the other side of the fence, about 25 metres beneath our lifting platform.

But there’s little time for introspection: almost 1,000 sq m of brick wall still needs to be covered with black paint by tomorrow morning. Last week, from late Thursday night to early Friday morning, I and several others painted over two murals by Italian artist Blu in Kreuzberg, often referred to as Berlin’s most iconic street art. Seven years after the monumental wall pieces came into being, we felt it was time for them to vanish, along with the fading era in Berlin’s history that they represented.

Streetart, urban style, illustration and arts projects. Alex Senna: A NXNE Art Artist Preview. Water Lane in Camden Gets a Street Art Makeover as Boxhead adds to Londons Latest Outdoor Gallery. These days one of the most exciting places to see street art is in Camden as the sheds and walls around Camden Lock Market continue to be painted at a rate of knots.

Water Lane in Camden Gets a Street Art Makeover as Boxhead adds to Londons Latest Outdoor Gallery

Curated by The Real Art of Street Art, I first visited the project last month when Zabou was painting one of the sheds. Since then loads more have been completed and the only frustration is that you can’t see them all as when the market is open as when the doors are open the art is hidden from view. Given that the painted sheds are workplaces in their own right it means that you’ve just got to visit before or after closing time. S Blog: Search Results. I have a lot of street art (grafitti) photographs to post from the past couple of months (or longer, in some cases).

The street art scene in east London has also gotten busier at the moment as the weather has improved, and I have been noticing several new pieces that popped up since the end of last week. I'll be posting these in time, but for now, have a look at these pieces below. NZM and James Boy Unify Ben Murphy (covered here: Street Art: Ben Murphy and 616) has been busy this year, and this is a new piece that appeared on Great Eastern Street, next to Millo's work.

616. Street artists unveiled #3 Interview with animator and street artist Dr Cream. Early this year I discovered playful stencils of jesters in the streets of Shoreditch.

Street artists unveiled #3 Interview with animator and street artist Dr Cream

No-one seemed to know who the artist was so I decided to post photos on Flickr and named the album ‘Who’s the new joker in town?’. Shortly after this, fellow Dutchie living in London Claude Crommelin, respected photographer and author of the book New Street Art, came to the rescue and revealed to me the artist name: Dr Cream. He told me that the ‘jokers’ I had spotted were actually called ‘Rolling Fools’ and sent me a link of a short YouTube video that really intrigued me. As a clever detective I managed to find Dr Cream’s contact details and wrote him asking for an interview. Just a few weeks later we met in a cafe and in a couple of hours, Dr Cream told me his fascinating story starting at art college to study pottery, after which he worked as an animator on famous films and now is a versatile street artist.

But now as the Olympics approaches, many artists are complaining that artwork is being removed in some areas but not in others. Meandering among the market stalls and curry restaurants of Brick Lane in east London are people stopping to soak up the street art.

Despite the rain, the best of London’s spraycan painters had a productive weekend. Jim Vision assisted Louis Masai raising awareness of looming eco-catastrophe with the #saveTheBees mural. Save The Bees – Masai Perhaps by chance this was the wall where a few of our finest ran into a spot of bother with the feds the previous weekend, a truly bizarre situation partially rectified this weekend when the wall was painted not once but twice!! This piece featuring Blair Zaye, Ubangibangi and others lasted barely 24 hours. Dropping the bomb with absolute aplomb. Id-iom in Camden Town. We caught up with the London based duo last week in Camden Town. The brothers work is instantly recognizable for its quirkiness, bold use of colors and witty subject matters. This time they opted for a futuristic version of a sex doll (yes you read it right) partly inspired by the works of Isaac Asimov; disguised as a mock advertising with a “Coming soon” logo.

The piece was completed with a tiny blue LED light bulb which was placed at the eye of the character. You can keep up to date with Id-iom via their blog, Facebook page, Twitter feed and on their Instagram account. In pictures: East London murals by Global Street Art. Global Street Art, in their own words: It’s hard to believe we’ve only been organising murals for two years – we start in March 2012! There was never a plan at the start – it was simply that my artist friends were painting the same legal walls again and again and their pieces didn’t last. We sought to take away the administrative burden from artists by asking for permission on their behalf.

Asking a landlord for permission isn’t easy if you have a full-time job or are just visiting London from another country. And with that, we started asking people if we could paint their walls, hoardings, shutters and trucks. As we built up a track record we found more people were open to having their spaces painted.

PLAY IS SOUL FOOD – LOS REYES. Los Reyes is a important part of the beginning of the PLAY IS SOUL FOOD project journey. :) :) :) It is located on the south east boarder of the state of mexico and the federal district (D.F/ mexico city).

A area where it has never really been the most economically stable, Los Reyes is, like many village areas in Mexico, over populated and still slightly under developed; cost of education is high, environmental, political and financial conflicts strongly determine the rate of development. However, although the people deal with many trying issues in their everyday life, there has always been a strong sense of community.

The everyday faces of the daily passers by become acquaintances, friends, family friends and even family members. This is a important teaching everyone should never forget. ‘Home is where the heart is’ and if you have heart within your communities, you will always find a home within your surrounding. Stonehenge.

GRAFFITI – Plin face in London. Amid my latest trek to the Shoreditch area of London there was one face that kept popping up again and again, everywhere I went…. I didn’t instantly know whether they were all by one artist or by a whole host of different people but I’m assuming they are all by the artist PLIN. A quick Google search has revealed only one other image on Flickr and located the ones that I have already tagged on Flickr too. Out of all the faces only two have a signature with them reading Plin or actually is that Plim??

Rather than opting for one style the artist here has painted some onto brickwork, used aerosol cans for others, pasted a few pre-made ones up and even produced a few stickers aswell.
