KIDULT “Illegalize Graffiti” Video Interview

KIDULT ITW (uncensored) "ILLEGALIZE GRAFFITI" from eric on Vimeo.

Angered and frustrated by the sudden infatuation and commercialization of the graffiti movement, French street artist Kidult has taken to the streets of Paris in an effort to reclaim his craft. In a retaliation against major luxury labels, Kidult has tagged a string of stores in recent months that include colette, Agnés b., JC/DC and Supreme. The video above features a one-on-one interview with Kidult in his workshop and follows along as the vandal hits several major Parisian shopping destinations.

My stand on his message:
Naturally he loses a lot of credibility to his argument with creating this self perpetuated genius of a video, but I kinda understand his point. He isn't doing anything new, but he is getting the uproarious response he seeks. Reading his words, my initial idea was that he was looking at the rebellious side of graffiti, the side of graffiti that challenged the right and gave people something to talk. Graffiti that isn't pretty or overly thought out. I liked the anti-establishment sentiment in his work, I rather enjoyed the research done and how he went about getting to the spots he was able to get to. I kinda enjoyed watching him vandalize the faces of so many franchise that thrive off of our last dollars, but dressing it up and trying to have believe that it is street art is a bit pretentious. I say call it like it is, I mean everything doesn't have to have a positive connotation. Tell the people you do this for the rush, or maybe to expose some ugly truth to there past because i rather enjoy watching the progression of the small film. Just a little stuck on his idea of commercialization, then creating a video to commercialize himself.Its really not in my nature to flat-out dislike the work of any creative professional, so I like some and i'm a little adverse about the rest...

Also, who the heck did he steal that civil worker outfit from, classic.

Nike Presents: The Pool

The Pool - The Full Story from Nike 6.0 on Vimeo.

One of the greatest displays of BMX talent I have seen in HD. Just please watch this one!

The Pool from Nike was more than a BMX comp, it was one of the most extra-ordinary gatherings of the BMX community this century. From the draining of a soon to be demolished local authority swimming pool in Dagenham, East London, into a world class park in less than two weeks was a feat in itself, but to see the diversity and level or riding on display at the launch event was truly remarkable. 40 international riders with a brand new team format saw non-comp riders, veterans, street destroyers and park animals all throw down into something far better than they could have dreamt of.

Sun Day by A2

Sun Day from Derek Spencer on Vimeo.

Brilliant and emotionally defiling. This simple piece of illustration holds just as much emotion as a rendition of Gilbert Grape. Wow.

A young boy and his sister, alone on a cold moon, experience light for their first time.

This is a third year group film from Sheridan College 2010. It was a collaborative effort of 8 months between Sean Calligan, Jen Bamford, Hail Kim, Nosa Ott, Cassandra Piesz, Morghan Peressini, Vanessa Stefaniuk, Derek Spencer, and Eddie West

Ben Eine - Oranges and Lemons

Ben Eine - Oranges and Lemons from abbie brandon on Vimeo.

I wish i had something to say, but my mental commentary is having a field day with the rebellion resonating from this piece. Give me a few days and i'll have a viable argument for this piece. Right now, enjoy.

In an effort to liven up London’s walls once again, British street artist Ben Eine takes on Westminster Council’s zero tolerance on graffiti and street art with a huge mural on the side of The London Graphic Centre in Covent Garden. Eines’ first piece in the UK this year is in his signature typographic style that can be found on shutters around Shoreditch, East London, and more recently LA and San Francisco.

Directed by Abbie Brandon.

There is something eerily artistic in watching beautiful women do implausible things to the sounds of classical music... Just watch.

The new film by Daniel Askill, shot with a Phantom camera, captures the spirit of the Aussie label's coloured denim collection

Found this over on
