CREEPN’CRAWL’S ARTIST MATT FRENCH | WeBringJustice's Blog Matt French is a mad prolific artist, dedicated to the skateboard art. He’s a real skateboarder too. He has lived his childhood in the 80′s so we have the same skate graphic inspirations and references. For me it’s a kinda fresh Jim Phillips with a creepy twist!

As we approach the end of 2013, we here at Hookedblog thought we would compile a short selection of some of the beautifully shot street art films and time lapses videos that we have shared and enjoyed watching through out the last year. The selection is in no particular order, some are only a few minutes while others such as MOMO's adventures in Jamaica and Cuba with Studio Cromie's Angelo are about 30 minutes in length, so we suggest you make yourself a tea or grab a beer... sit back and enjoy. And if there is anything you think we have missed let us know and we will add it to the selection. Eine — Spraying Bricks Nychos, The Yok & Sheryo in Brooklyn, NY.

When I was in college back in the late ’90s, my friends and I were obssessed with the legendary and unfinished Beach Boys SMiLE “album”. Like many other SMiLE-enthusiasts we tried to re-construct what COULD HAVE BEEN the greatest pop album of all time. This growing phenomenon unintentionally turned it into what some may call the world’s first “interactive album”, an idea which makes perfect sense considering that Wilson originally recorded the music in a modular fashion. Culled from various bootlegs and box sets that we had, my friends and I would make our own “SMiLE mixes” (with CDs and cassettes!) – album length versions of how we imagined the legendary, unfinished album would have been sequenced. For us and the rest of the Beach Boys SMiLE community this became a ritual and an obsession that.

Editors' Blog Returning to the New York charity circuit less than a week after the New York collections have ended can feel a bit like returning to school’s varsity sport after just barely surviving pre-season training.

The Mike Kelley show at MOCA Geffen has a whole lot of everything going on: child nightmare videos, weird banners, scary stuffed animal sculptures, night-light installations of the fictional Kandor, and architectural models of every school Kelly ever went to. There’s also his “Chinatown Wishing Well,” above, his tribute, to a similarly garish fountain located in L.A.’s Chinatown. It’s a lot to absorb. But while you’re at it, don’t forget to take a peek under and inside many of his pieces, since they often seem to contain little surprises. Under the architectural models, you’ll find a mattress; a pink dresser hides books about sex and a packet of birth control pills; and inside the “Wishing Well” is a mattress, a box of Kleenex, some candles and tub of Vaseline.
