123Klan Engraved SK8 Boards

Just found this in my google reader. 123 Klan just posted something in StationeryStyle. Will be hard to use it though. Instead, it will end up mounted in my wall.

BANKSY: Exit Through the Gift Shop

Street art is a predominant force to recon with. It can be compared to one giant icon that stares at you in the face and just leaves you digest it’s meaning. Then you walk along.

After watching Banksy’s film Exit through the gift shop, It really got me to thinking how big of a joke the whole art scene is playing on the masses. Definitely a lot of people got suckered to buying the ridiculously priced “art” pieces, but you can’t blame them. That goes to show how peer pressure is prevailing, or it's just most people want to get a piece of whats popular.

It really goes to show that anyone can be successful in art as long as you are focused to work on your ideas. It doesn’t matter if you hire people to do the execution for you. As long as you can produce for consumption.

The perfect formula for street art: The use of using iconic figures, edited in Photoshop to make the guide for the stencil.

End result? A pseudo work of art that will definitely land in on your living room while it leans on your wall (not hanged) leaving this Just-got-this-off-an-art show-but-haven’t-had-the-time-to-frame feeling for other friends to see.

Still a great film though. A brief introduction to the street artists and their works that you most probably have searched in the net already.

Design: Herakut: The Perfect Merge

The duo from Germany who is known as Herakut has been making cutting edge graffiti art that you don't normally see. You would definitely stand in awe once you've seen their masterpieces.  Obscure but Sweet  is the phrase that I can say as to how their art appeals to the viewer. There's also a certain depth in the characters they often use to depict an emotion. 

The book features their process from pencil drawing, the initial sprays, until the finishing touches of the piece will leave you asking for more. You'll also be drawn by the handwritten pencil text (erasures included) that you don't normally see. If you're not into graffiti art yet, this book might give the best inspiration to create your first piece with the thought that anything is possible. I consider this one of those gems that helped me out of a creativity slump. The spontaneity and raw energy that their art manifests truly says that there is no boundaries in the imagination of man.
