Caps Lock?

December10

So this Friday is my last day at work for a little under a month, Rad I know! In my time off I have a few things I need to get to, one of which is the massive stack of blank caps I have lying around. I will be painting them all up they will be up for sale in the new year so stay pealed. Here is the first done and dusted.

The Taming of the Beasts

October19

It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for rhino’s in my art, they are truly amazing beasts and the radical surge in poaching over the last few years have seen them gain some prominance in the art scene in general. Few people could have done better justice to a graf piece for the big guys than Faith47 and what better setting than Shanghai.

Graf Image of the Day

September18

Check out these conceptual installation pieces from “Lambchop” a Michigan based designer and artist. While not your traditional graffiti, this one gains a worthy mention with a healthy dose of subversive street art style.

What’s better than waking up to some Banksy in the morning? Granted this isnt from the man himself but these gifs from “ABVH” are simply superb! Watch these spread like wildfire!

Olympic Banksy

July25

Banksy takes gold with these two new Olympian inspired pieces, arriving just in time for the opening ceremony on Friday. Brilliant as usual.

A Free State of Creativity

July24

The below is a video promoting Mr Brainwashes latest project. Set to be unveiled on August the 1st, I must say it has me curious. It also has me wondering if perhaps he shall reveal himself as Banksy’s greatest parody. That last image in the clip certainly points to Banksy in a big way, what do you guys think?
