street art Montreal artist Roadsworth (previously) continues to make his mark on the streets of Montreal by introducing elements of wildlife and humor onto an asphalt canvas. In his latest pieces we see flocks of geese swooping down tree-lined streets and schools of sardines move with the flow of pedestrian traffic (or end up wedged inside a tin can), unexpected symbols against an urban backdrop. This year marks a decade since Roadsworth was charged with 53 counts of public mischief, after which he received considerable public support and was let go with a slap on the wrist. Since then the artist has created artwork for municipalities, exhibitions, and arts festivals around the world. You can see much more on his website, and he also has a book.

Eventually it got to the point where I could sense the moment coming when things would really cut loose and go berserk,” says painter Dan Witz about his process and method for catching the moment when the roiling mass of hardcore music fans hit the perfect state of frenzy. “NY Hardcore Paintings”, opening this past Saturday night and on view currently at The Jonathan Levine gallery in Chelsea, presents Witz with his new body of convulsing bodies and to say they are a revelation is only part of the story. When we saw his first mosh pit paintings a few years ago we were struck by the raw thrilling chaotic energy and calculated abandon in them – and reminded of many such nights in the 80s and 90s in lower Manhattan when we also joined in the fray.

Giger Bodysuit Tattoo Project Since everyone seemed to like the last Giger sleeve I posted, I wanted to add Bosko’s biomech bodysuit, largely inspired by Giger pieces — he’s 49, and the fomer CEO of a top firm in Serbia. The tattoos were done over two and a half years by Boban at Bomba Tattoo in Novi Sad, Serbia. The tattoos were done with Talens India Ink instead of regular tattoo ink because Bosko developed an allergy, which eliminated their ability to do standard graywash shading in the piece. Full photos continue after the break.
