David Zinn Chalk Art – Part 2. Behind the Scenes of “Untold”: Exclusive Interview with James Reka. In his upcoming solo exhibition at Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne, Australia, James Reka examines the transition in a city from winter to spring. Perhaps no other city experiences such a drastic change during this time, than does Berlin, which come April is flooded with people riding bikes, picnicking in parks and soaking up the sunshine.

Earlier this year, Reka came to Berlin as the inaugural artist-in-residence at the Urban Nation Workspace in the former West Berlin neighborhood of Schöneberg. His abstract paintings of women pulse with a dynamic spirit that captures not only the city’s newfound spring life, but also Berlin’s struggles with gentrification. Working in Schöneberg, an area noted for both its upscale residences and regular prostitutes, Reka is no stranger to this paradox of imported poshness and crude authenticity.

In May 2013, we teamed up with Work in Progress (Iustin Moldovan, Alina Bucur, Mihai Chiţu), a group of contemporary art lovers who gather artists to revive spaces in Bucharest and elsewhere through artistic interventions.

They believe that of great importance is the work in progress phase, which becomes part of the space’s history and offers continuity and meaning to its existence. The re:art became communication partner for their third event, a collective contemporary art exhibition with artists active in various fields – street art, installation, painting, photography, performance. We chose an unconventional space for the exhibition – Ciclop Garage. Opened in 1923, Ciclop is the first multi-storey parking space in Bucharest. Although it was functional then and still is today, the garage suffered from an identity “crisis”, lacking a clear direction of development.

The invited artists played with ideas and forms in their own personal and unique style. © Anda Bolohan © Horia George Ioniţă. Street Painting by David Walker.

We recently learned women’s thighs can be used as premium ad space, but Boston-based film student Jodi Steel found a new intriguing use for her upper leg. She recently shot to internet fame after photos of her detailed thigh drawings went viral on popular news sharing site, Reddit.

Like many other bored students, Jodi Steel used to pass the time during boring school lectures by doodling, only instead of exercising her artistic talents on the back of her notebooks, she did it on her bare thighs. Despite having no kind of formal training as an illustrator, Jodi’s dermal masterpieces look like the work of a seasoned artist, a fact which she attributes to relentless practice, despite what everyone else may think. Her talents didn’t go unnoticed, and after seeing the artworks on her thigh one day, a teacher at Emerson College, in Boston, asked Jodi to draw the illustrations for a ‘steam punk’ book called Steaming into a Victorian Future: A Steampunk Anthology.

The Underbelly Project -- A Secret Art Gallery Beneath the Streets. Nov 2nd 2010 By Laura Leu Deep in the belly of New York City lies a ghost town of a subway station, where the trains don't run, but street art thrives. For the past 18 months, 103 artists have been covertly sneaking into the space to create and display their work on the dank walls of the pit.

Combining street art with spelunking, The Underbelly Project is a real collection of works that exists four stories beneath the surface of the City. But good luck finding it. Street artists Workhorse and PAC curated the underground exhibit in an abandoned subway station, but the exact location won't be released to the public, for fear of legal repercussions. Each of the 103 artists had one night to finish his or her piece. It wasn't always easy. The project took a year and a half to put together and includes work from well-known graffiti artists like Ron English , Swoon and Revok .
