Brazilian artist Herbert Baglione has been a strong interest in the South American graffiti movement for more than ten years. Inspired by Brazil’s street culture, Baglione started experimenting with new ways to look at his urban environment of Sao Paulo and provoked dialogue about his fresh perspective on urban artwork. Alongside these efforts are Baglione’s distinctive mural designs and stretched figures representing humans and aliens. These are often balancing elongated and rounded extremes with dramatic iconic symbols such as familiar urban architecture.
Influenced by his older brother, Baglione began painting at the age of three, and has found his greatest interest in provoking themes such as death, individualism, family, and chaos. These complex themes alongside his distinctive style have given Baglione deserved recognition in the international graffiti scene.

R.Rock Enterprises would like to remind you of something that I’m sure has been on your mind non-stop lately. What makes a better gift than a limited-edition artist print? As always, they have a terrific selection that can be purchased through the artists’ web stores. All prints are rolled in Kraft paper and shipped in an extra thick packing tube. To ensure your holiday delivery, please place your orders by Monday, December 14th.
Mike Giant continues to amaze with his fine line work. R. Rock has a few prints that vary from his usual black-red-white program and have color in them! One even has GOLD! And with the price of gold going up and up, this will make a great gift and a great investment.
Richard Colman just launched a BRAND-NEW website and for his first time ever has limited-edition screen prints available. Meet Mr. Colman. He will be your favorite artist if he isn’t already.
You’re either gonna be a terrible old man or a really cool old man, so you might as well try and point your way towards cool.
Artist, musician, and self-proclaimed “dirtbag” John Dwyer ain’t afraid to get grimy. The frontman of San Francisco’s Thee Oh Sees and a veteran of a few other noteworthy post-punk and noise bands, he’s seen his fair share of dive bars and chaotic late nights, and even some medical near-disasters. Hectic and anecdotal, his artwork is inspired by everything from finding ways to cheat the system to childhood cartoons to barbecue. Watch the interview conducted by his friend and fellow artist Kottie Paloma, available for the first time to the public for free, from Walrus TV.
San Francisco based artist and musician John Dwyer has been involved in numerous bands, including Coachwhips, Pink and Brown, Landed, Yikes, Burmese, The Hospitals, and Thee Oh Sees. His handmade fliers and album art have gained notable attention, with many fans considering them to be collectors’ items.

“After 5 weeks of riding my bike around Portland interviewing the homeless, I’m finally finished with the this passionate NON-PROFIT project I have been working on to support and bring awareness to the homeless crisis here in Portland, and in general. I am contacting you because I would appreciate your support in broadcasting on your website and any other outlets the “Homeless, not hopeless” non-profit project. Last week I made a screen printed edition of 100 prints that are priced to sell to get more people involved and support this benevolent fundraiser. MY goal is to raise $5,000 Dollars to donate before the end of the year to the TRANSITION PROJECTS homeless shelter here in Portland, Oregon.
Please take a look at the wealth of info I have learned, and research during this project. enclosed are photos I took (with permission from each individual to use online.) as well as direct links to each respective section. ***Please I ask you kindly to get involved and help broadcast and spread the info about this project. I’m only 1 person and honestly I’m trying my best to spread the word, but with your support and post more people can become aware of this issue and draw more awareness to the homeless issue with this project as well as within each persons respective community.
**I would be more than happy to talk more about this topic in an interview for your website if you feel it would bring more to the piece? Whatever I can do to help support and get this message and project out there I will !”
