Miami-based Typoe created this insane piece earlier in the year titled Confetti Death. Produced from shards of spray paint caps, the confetti of color sees a splash through the mouth of a skull, juxtaposing quite nicely with the white wall it’s placed on. Confetti Death was just a snippet of a larger show highlighting the artist’s graffiti and fine artwork. A bit more of his work can be seen here.
First and foremost, I am sure that everyone knows about MOCA‘s Art In The Streets exhibit by now. However, I am not going to post all of them every week but just a favorite or two and then link you all to the site so you can take a gander for yourselves. . .
An enigma wrapped in metal music underpinnings, Neck Face’s latest installment at the MOCA is reminiscent of the stark aesthetic in the artist’s work. The artist’s meticulously-crafted city underbelly within the exhibit allows for a heightened ambiance of dread to enhance the experience.
Following up on their inclusion in MOMA’s “Art in the Streets” exhibition, Shepard Fairey, COPE and Martha Cooper have teamed up to release a limited edition print that goes on sale today, April 21. The 18″ x 24″ poster is a signed screen print of a photograph taken by Martha Cooper of a wall mural featuring the work of Fairey and COPE. With a limited edition run of only 450 copies, the $60 print goes on sale today (at a random, unspecified time) through the OBEY GIANT web store.

“Going Nowhere Fast” solo exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles, D*Face painted a large mural on the outer wall of the show space. Turning to the works of prominent American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein for inspiration, the mural takes on a traditional, highly-stylized comic book style with thick lines and bold color. Take a look at the video above.
Had to drop in on the ever so sexy and talented Tilt to see what he was up to, and guess what? He’s currently has an exhibit running right now from April 15th – June 18 2011, if you see him send my love ;D
