Owww… that REALLY hurt!

 

Doesn’t Banksy‘s latest NYC piece remind you of the YouTube darling, Charlie Bit My Finger?

Just a Sprinkle a Day…

I’m really digging this deviant art trend – urban landscape as inspiration and canvas.

Street artist, Morfai, is responsible for bad-assifying transforming this statue called Seeder in Kaunas, Lithuania.

In addition to the actual piece there is an interesting short video brainstorm of the ideas that Morfai threw around before deciding on the handful of star dust.

Making Do With What You Have

The New Crunk

Krink.  Basically the gold standard in marking products for both street and studio environments developed by graffiti writer/artist, Craig “KR” Costello.  The most notorious and recognizable (to my the untrained eye) effect is the dripping ink aesthetic that has graced many phone booths, mailboxes and subway windows.  This is the stuff I am talking about…

This stuff reminds me of late night shinanagins in the LES.  Good times… Anyway, if you aren’t getting your fill of this deviant art how about tucking your Mac away in a Krink-ed out sleeve developed by InCase+Krink+Arkitip.  (yeah, I said “krinked-out”… so?) 

I am sure you have figured out by now that this has pretty much nothing to do with crunking… but if the mere mention of the dance has inspired you, check out the “how to crunk” instructions.

Aaaargh

This is first time I have seen deviant art on a boat.  Who does this kind of work?  A pirate?  Regardless, I dig it…

So a pirate walks into a bar and sits down. 

The bartender comes over to take his order and notices a steering wheel on his lap.  Curious, the bartender asks, “what’s up with the steering wheel?”

The pirate answers, ” Aaaargh!  Don’t know… but it’s drivin’ me nuts!”

Weebles Wobble But They Dont Fall Down

I do not condone defacing property… in fact, seeing it done brings the crazy, right-winged, (redundant, I know) personality-I-prefer-to-pretend-doesn’t-exist out of me.  However, when I find street art done WELL in an appropriate spot, I am not only impressed but I egg it on. 

Case in point:

And this wonky-eyed view is actually painted on a construction barricade in Paris.
