Sans titre. Mon Street Art Book "Jeunesse. Dimanche 22 avril 2012 7 22 /04 /Avr /2012 10:42 Mon Street Art Book Dave the Chimp Nathan Edition Présentation : Pour inventer, dessiner et revisiter l’art de la rue !

Mon Street Art Book "Jeunesse

Un livre original qui invite à la créativité, à l'invention de son propre style en s'appropriant des œuvres inédites créées par des artistes de la rue. Mon avis : **** Un bel album, 21x29 cm, bien épais et avec une illustration assez représentative du sujet traité ! A l’intérieur vous trouverez 256 pages de tags et de graffs à personnaliser et à mettre en couleur selon votre goût d’après les œuvres de 75 maîtres du Street Art ! Des styles très différents les uns des autres, amusants, drôles ou porteurs de messages plus sérieux, cet art est vraiment à part des autres mais pourtant très intéressant à découvrir et à mettre en forme et en couleur !

Erik's Designbuss. All aboard Erik’s Designbuss, a mobile design studio which brings the creative to the customer.

Erik's Designbuss

Swede Erik Olovsson decided mobile was the way forward and set out to challenge the conventions of the design business. His Tardis-like bus, complete with print shop, photo studio, meeting space and library improbably shoehorned inside, means businesses don’t have to leave their premises for a consultation, and can see their projects taking shape for themselves. “It is rare that a designer gets a deeper insight into a client’s business,” he said. “It’s easy to hang around at the office and surf design blogs instead of finding inspiration in real life.” Hear, hear. Offering everything in the way of graphic design, from logos to menus to signs, Erik is on the road touring Sweden, picking up commissions by advertising at each of his “bus stops”, and if you want to flag him down, you can visit www.eriksdesignbuss.se to find out where he is, get in touch, or read more about his Designbuss project.

JR

Grâce à la technique du collage photographique il expose librement sur les murs du monde entier, attirant ainsi l'attention de ceux qui ne fréquentent pas les musées habituellement. Après avoir trouvé un appareil photo dans le métro parisien en 2001, il parcourt l’Europe à la rencontre de ceux qui s’expriment sur les murs et les façades qui structurent les villes, et colle leurs portraits dans les rues, les sous sols et les toits de Paris. Entre 2004 et 2006, il réalise Portrait d'une Génération, : des portraits de jeunes de banlieue qu'il expose, en très grand format, dans les quartiers bourgeois de Paris. En 2007, avec Marco il réalise Face 2 Face, la plus grande expo photo illégale jamais créée.
