The streets of New Orleans are patrolled by a vigilante called The Gray Ghost, 52 year old Fred Radtke, a man who’s been systematically obliterating every piece of graffiti across the city with the same shade of gray paint since 1997.
For my eleventh installment of All Things English… check out how British street artist Banksy used The Grey Ghost’s canvas as a launch pad for a fresh piece in New Orleans.
Doesn’t this have a “Hello, my name is Simon” from Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings feel? Keeping in the ATE theme, these cartoons were originally made in England by Filmfair in the 70’s… and they too are rad.
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.
