The amazingly short lived street piece by D*Face:
This got painted over pretty much the day after it went up, as the ad agency next door represented some of the people dissed on it. Spineless really, not like they got up and did it themselves!
Anyway, it's been turned into a print called "What Wars are For". . . and it seems like nowadays wars exist as good fodder for street artists with a touch of writers block. To be honest it is getting a bit old hat, but I guess its pretty much been the case anyway, and some great images do crop up now and again that stick out from the dross . . . this is definitely one of them!
And then a complete surprise to me, Eine has obviously been busy in the studio as well as on walls as of late, a completely new letter style from him, made into two lush new prints. Whilst you may look on screen and think "hmmmpffh, what a load of pants" Eine's screen prints are a the nicest hand finished piece of gloriousness I have witnessed. Truly have to be seen to be believed.
Just not sure about the dodgy title!

Anyway, it's getting warmer (between the piss poor rain) which means the big boys get out of bed before 4pm most days now, and actually bother to paint stuff on walls like they used to before becoming "artists". Guess that's why I have always loved Eine's stuff, strips the bullshit and just gets straight in your face.
Excuse the poor stitching peeps, I promise to improve!
But what literally just made me wet my pants (no, seriously) was when I just uploaded these pics taken almost a year apart to the day. I thought I already had this Eine shutter in the bag, but today was less sunny than before so it was a good time to get a better shot (I'm sad A LOT like that, you'll see)
Here it is on 24th June 2006 :
And Then here it is again today :
So at least he is going back over his old stuff and keeping it fresh, whilst also doing loads of new bits in between. Which keeps saddo's like me happy and away from any windows looking to be licked. :o)
Besides, this one will no doubt be a complete load of utter codswallop and wont actually waste a whole lot of your time anyways :o)
Now to get my thinking cap on to see what I can actually bore you lot (all 2 of you!) with. . . . . Lets start with this splendid piece in Brighton by Tinho, Pato and Flip, who are currently in town promoting Brazilian urban art with a show at the Ocontemporary Gallery.
The Brazilian scene is regarded by most as the hottest on the scene at them moment. And after seeing them in action I cannot disagree!
6 exclusive new prints and a huge hoard of originals for the flighty amongst you available now from: http://www.ocontemporary.com/
