C-Mon Giveaway Extravaganza: Stikman Calendar!!

Hey Folks:

The elusive street artist Stikman has given me a copy of his lovingly crafted 2011 wall calendar for a giveaway. Let’s just say y’all are lucky I don’t keep this one for myself.

Leave a comment and this little piece of Fun in the Sun could be all yours.

xox,

P.S. Been having a little work done on the site, so things may look janky until everything is sorted out.

Sell Out: Street artists go Madison Avenue.


Desperate times call for desperate measures. Cash For Your Warhol, by Hargo (aka Geoff Hargadon).

I’ve organized a little online show for the folks behind the Add-Art Firefox plug-in that riffs on advertising and selling out. For the purpose of this digital gathering, I’ve teamed up with eight brand name vandals — Stikman, Skewville, infinity, Hargo, eko, Celso, Cake and Abe Lincoln Jr. –  to replace all of those annoying web ads with something waaaay artier and  entertaining. (Haven’t heard of the plug-in? You can read all about it here and download it here.)

In this post, find examples of each of the artists’ “campaigns.” To see the complete series of pieces that each artist created (along with an explanatory write-up of the show), visit Add-Art.org.

Special thanks to Hana Newman for pulling this together.

I managed to get a sneak peek at Work to Do, the show that the boys over at the Endless Love Crew have been cooking up over at 112 Greene Street in SoHo. (See Martha Cooper’s preview pix here.) Featuring a super duper line-up that includes Ellis G, Avoid, Darkcloud, Stikman, Robots Will Kill and loads more New York City street and graffiti artists, the exhibit will be openings its doors to the public this Thursday, March 26th at 6 p.m. Check it out!

P.S.: I’ve got serious catching up to do on work, sleep and grocery shopping. No Digest today.

C-Mon Giveaway Extravaganza: Stikman edition.


Stikmen make you happy. (Crappy photo by C-M.)

Through a trusted intermediary (my Stikman dealer), I’ve managed to secure three mini-Stikmen (each roughly 1.5 inches tall) for a giveway on da blog! The pieces are pocket-sized wood cut-outs produced by the notoriously reclusive street artist, who I understand lives somewhere in the vicinity of the Eastern seaboard.

Leave a comment below, with a valid e-mail, to sign up and these cute little guys could be yours for desk decoration or street enhancement. The giveaway is open to all. The winner will be announced next Monday.

Lost in A Maze in Brooklyn.


Through the looking glass: The bubble mirrors on the ceiling made for fun photographing. (Photos by C-M.)

Disorienting times call for disorienting art. Factory Fresh, in Brooklyn, has a gallery-sized maze that leads viewers around bends and into dead-ends, all covered in various layers of sensory-overload paint. A collaboration between Celso, infinity, former Keith Haring collaborator LA2 and the mysterious Stikman, the maze takes the concept of the graffiti-covered alleyway and turns it into a total funhouse. (Full disclosure: Celso is my partner-in-crime, romantic and otherwise.) One of my favorite touches was the ceiling, where the artists installed bubble mirrors that delivered a warped viewing experience of the entire scenario. 

The show is up through Dec. 2nd.
