Adida Fallen Angel – The Fallen

9 Jan

Basically, Adida has a  serious amount of Artworks which changes it’s shape every few years, he rewrites his CV again and again over time and his life story keeps throwing him into corners he never thought he will end up in, he is  a traveler of both mind and heart and his passion is music above all, then comes the Arts.  He does what he can to survive and follow his  dreams even if it requires extreme sacrifices along the way, it’s all that he cares about, besides that he gets high on sharing and working with others.  Inspiration is his favorite word, right after independence.  Adida in mostly known for his photographic skills and the ability to keep pushing the envelope when it comes to manipulations and graphical exploration of his ever growing techniques.

When he is not sketching, skating or shooting shots you might find him screaming his lungs out in his current musical project called SpoonLicker, where he is singing and recording his first album in Canada along side some very talented musicians.

‘The Fallen’ is a street art series which Adida started when he got stuck in Israel back in mid 2011, his frustration reached such a high level he needed to express himself so badly that his Art started to leak into the streets of Tel-Aviv.

HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD

6 Dec

HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD is a Short-Form Docuseries exploring the power of Public Art and innovation to uplift and revitalize urban communities. The Pilot Season revolves around the Arts District of Wynwood Miami, featuring an array of internationally acclaimed and locally respected Street Artists, Graffiti Writers and Muralists.

In 2009, Urban Visionary and Placemaker Tony Goldman partnered with Jeffrey Deitch (Deitch Projects Soho and now director of MoCa Los Angeles) to create the Wynwood Walls.What began with a series of parking lots, loading docks, and drab rundown factory buildings, became a curation of high caliber murals from Futura, Shepard Fairey, OS Gemeos, Kenny Scharf and others. The Walls opened for Art Basel 2009, and now two years later the collection has expanded to include over thirty artists from around the world, becoming a “Town Center” in a district that has grown into one of the largest concentrations of commissioned murals in the World.

This year Artists, many of whom have not shown work in the United States before, were selected by Tony Goldman, Goldman Projects Arts Manager Meghan Coleman and Art Consultant Medvin Sobio of the Visual Arts Collective Viejas Del Mercado. 33third Los Angeles, Mid City Arts, and Montana Cans worked together to provide paint for the project’s ambitious expansion.

HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD explores a unique juncture in history as a new community emerges and evolves. A progressive urban revitalization campaign is examined in the first person, using this year’s new Artists and their commissions as a lens to explore a neighborhood in transition. The Series is framed by colorful overview and concluding episodes, providing the scope of past, present and future. Each episode is accented by images from legendary Documentary Photographer Martha Cooper, who has been capturing The Walls since they began in 2009. Her Photographs will also appear in a Special Edition Art Book “The Wynwood Walls and Doors” set to be released at Art
Basel 2011.

Having just graduated from art school this year, Gaia is the youngest artist to join the Wynwood Walls. For the Wynwood Doors, a portrait gallery of murals within the collection, Gaia painted a mural of Henry Flagler, the powerful oil and railroad tycoon who is responsible for modern day Florida.

In this Episode, Kenny Scharf returns to Wynwood to expand on a piece he started in 2009, one of the original Wynwood Walls. Having seen street art evolve from the New York City graffiti scene in the 1980s, to its status today as an established and respected international art movement, he reflects on his life and career as an Artist. He addresses the downside of art being treated as fashion, and articulates the importance of creating a project where the art itself is not for sale. Kenny also discusses the pros and cons of gentrification and how it relates to the Wynwood district.

They create a colorful dreamscape together, building on themes that each of the artists have explored for years. Saner’s interpretation of the work, and his poetic eloquence helps elevate the wall into an ethereal realm, while Sego, traveling to the United States for the first time, brings an astute attention to detail, and a stunning technique grounded in the complexities of the natural world. These Artists exemplify the power of art, both public and private, to function as a change agent, using this mural as a tool to reframe the worlds view of Mexico; from a dangerous narco state, to one of the most beautiful, mystical and transformative cultures in the world.

Sivan Askayo

10 Nov

Sivan Askayo, an Israeli photographer based in NY for the last 10 years is currently involved with emerging artists groups both in NY and Tel Aviv and is attending ICP; International Center of Photography in NY.

After few years of working in Corporate America, She has decided to follow her passions of photography, writing and traveling and combine them all together, creating portraits of a city or a place through her lens.

She traveled throughout Europe, North and South America, Alaska and China, looking for the complex, aesthetics and layers of a place.  She is inspired both by the city dynamics and its people, as well as the space of the rural and Nature. Her passion for Street Photography has led her to follow Graffiti and Urban Art as well as the artists themselves and document their work.

She is currently working on a long term project called ‘Intimacy Under the Wires’ which reveals images of laundry both intimate and unconfined while their snoopy character makes laundry, a seemingly prosaic subject, all the more intriguing, teaching us something about the culture and the way people live.

* I had the privilege to take a long walk with Sivan on the streets of Tel-Aviv one day, it was a hot summer day in 2011 and we both decided to simply walk and try to catch some shots, it was a good day and I had fun looking at Sivan cramping into corners trying to nail a perfect shot, she defiantly got an eye for finding amazing subjects in a a place where most people will simply walk on by unnoticed, I personally love her post process, always fresh and makes me want to travel once again, I am pretty sure Sivan can make a postcard out of every street corner and make you dream what it would be like if you were there yourself…

Fantastic right?!? I told you! You want to see more? check out her site HERE:

Ron English

27 May

What can I say about Ron English that hasn’t been said before!? God’s knows. All I know is that I have lots of respects and admiration for his guts and creative force which never seems to slow down but only accelerate. working for many years, making fantastic mind blowing artworks and displaying on the street while fighting against main stream media and commercial manipulation, all hail the king Ron.

Here is what Wiki has to say:

Ron English (born 1959) is an American contemporary artist who explores popular brand imagery and advertising. His signature style employs a mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, including comic superhero mythology and totems of art history, to create a visual language of evolution. He is also widely considered a seminal figure in the advancement of street art away from traditional wild-style lettering and into clever statement and masterful trompe l’oeil based art. He has created illegal murals and billboards that blend stunning visuals with biting political, consumerist and surrealist statements, hijacking public space worldwide for the sake of art since the 1980s.

And some wicked artworks!
