I had Ian Cox pop down to the studio recently, it’s always nice hanging out with Ian, we’ve been working on things together since the early days of Nuart. It’s a busy time in the studio right now with 3 sets of work going to shows in LA, Miami and the stroke art fair in Munich. Ian caught some great construction shots as the afternoon wore on.
Graffiti has been around for decades in the U.S., but in some parts of the world it's a budding youth movement. We were so impressed by this massive production by the 10s Crew in Saigon, Vietnam. Take a good look at their rusty scaffolding and wobbly bamboo ladders. No matter the conditions they have to work with, these guys are still pushing their limits to go big. It's inspiring to see the way art continues to transcend cultural and language barriers and connects us all. It's powerful. We hope to see more work from people in all parts of the globe!
In honor of the Japanese Tsunami and Fukushima anniverdary on March 11th, French Sautel Cago traveled to different cities destroyed by the Tsunami to paint on destroyed homes with the phrase "Remember the Tsunami" in Japanese. He spent 6 days there walking around, finding shelter inside laundromats or on the street. Sautel states that "Even after 2 years, there is still a lot to rebuild." Hopefully Sautel's artwork brings some brightness and joy to the devastated area!
