Mear One’s latest mural is straight up badass. Here’s a narrated version that gives some background story as the painting unfolded:
What’s crazy, is the amount of insanity that continued after the painting was finished. Almost immediately, somebody wrote “No to anti-antisemitism” over it. Not long after a couple of different tags were hit over it, someone decided to white wall the central image.
I guess some people don’t like any anti-greed imagery in their neighborhoods. What’s strange, is how out of context art can be taken. I didn’t see anything but a mural that clearly represented the ultra-elite money hoarders keeping the working class down…while the world burns in the background.
Too bad the shit got dissed. Either way, big up to Mear on the effort and the execution.
Shok1 continues to amaze. Here’s his take on the @ symbol…giving it the 3D treatment. To anyone that’s actually tried their hand at spray painting, you gotta give it up to homeboy’s insanely clean lines. No overspray anywhere. Some of that fine detail work is just mind-blowing.
Shok1 is keeping that graffiti bar nice and high for the rest of us.
Ever heard of graffiti? Then I’m sure you know or have heard of this dude; Revok. Here’s a cool little vid of homeboy speakin on some shizzle:
Haha…loved hearing the references to the good old days about stealing tips of all sorts of cans just get a good one…versus nowadays, being able to order any tip in bulk on the internet. Bug and Tar remover cans…those were fat cap gold in the early 90′s.
For a long time now, my buddy Berd/Zire has talked about doing a mural with the Super Mario theme. The other day he sent me this link. Check out Slick and Cale’s Super Mario mural madness.
