Vinz Feel Free ~ Tempus Fugit
    Thursday, 15 May 2014 /// Written by Trippe

LONDON --- Beyond money, individual success and fame, there is something humans long for: time. Or more adequately stated: More Time. It is the largest capital that human beings have, and it’s spent faster than any fortune.

We are born to live. A chronometer starts and seems to accelerate over the years. Only death can stop time. At the end of the road, our memories determine who we are, what we have lived and how we managed our time.

Vinz Feel Free recently held the indoor/ outdoor show Tempus Fugit in London with 8 works on the streets while the other 8 rested on the walls at RexRomae Gallery.

Inspired by the British Romantic literature, the works on the street represent scenes of the ephemeral and dirty twilight of life, while the artwork in the gallery shows moments of everlasting youth and beauty. Just like the chilling picture of Dorian Gray.

Tempus Fugit is an exhibition of 16 works – 8 on the streets of London and 8 in the gallery. All the original works and photographs of the walls can be viewed at the next pop-up exhibition at RexRomae Gallery from 24 - 30 April.

Street Eraser in London
    Friday, 28 March 2014 /// Written by Trippe

LONDON --- tired of walking down the street and having visuals pushed up in your face? Well, Guus Ter Beek and Tayfun Serier in London are out there busy with Photoshop erasing as much as possible with Street Eraser!

Anyone who's used the software will recognise the grey and white checkerboard pattern, and we rather like the idea that it's hiding under the surface of everything around us. And there's still a lot to erase in London. PICS

Save South Bank (+london)
    Thursday, 12 September 2013 /// Written by Trippe

There's an interesting urban development battle taking place in South Bank London as of late between developers of the Southbank Centre and the skaters who have used the space for over 35 years. The developers not only want the skaters to move, but they are willing to build the skaters "a better" skate spot a short 120 meters down the road. The skaters don't want to leave and thus a PR battle ensues.

Proposals for the centre's £120m Festival Wing complex will see the concrete undercroft beneath the Queen Elizabeth Hall, which has been a mecca for skaters since the 1970s, transformed into restaurants and shops. It is a move that sparked a vociferous campaign to protect the site for skating and BMXing, generating a 50,000-signature petition in July that has delayed the planning application. ~read on.

Developers want the skaters to move on.

And the skaters don't wanna leave.

Doggy Turd Lamps
    Wednesday, 13 June 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Yeah, we know we should probably stay away from any poop related artness, but these guys are too good.

Both hand made in London, UK, Lamps were designed as items of everyday use that make user a bit uncomfortable with every use. The On/Off switch is shaped as a turd that needs to be stepped on. Each take one month to create. Lamp are available worldwide in limited editions of Good Boy - 100 and Good Puppy - 200 directly from artist at www.whatshisname.co.uk

Both lamps were supposed to be part of London's the Art Below exhibition on London Underground stations. Even though they were accepted by the organizers, unfortunately they were banned by London Underground due to being offensive. Good Boy - Good Puppy

Sickboy Studio Visit
    Friday, 16 March 2012 /// Written by David Shillinglaw

On a sunny February afternoon, I visited the studio of London based artist Sickboy, as he prepares for his solo exhibition at White Walls Gallery in San Francisco (opening Sat, Mar 17th). Famed for his street art throughout the world, this is Sickboy's debut solo exhibition in the United States. As he continues to paint one of the three canvases currently pinned to the wall, I ask him how he's getting on in the lead up to the show, about his history in street art, and his progression into galleries.

Interview by David Shillinglaw

Your show is called 'Wonder Club'. What is the Wonder Club?

It's a few different things to me. I have a lot of crazy dreams, and I wanted to base the work around these dreams, as a personal surrealism. It's given me more room for freestyle. A lot of the content is based on childhood memories and fairytales. There's quite a whimsical theme running throughout.

So do you feel the work for this show is more personal than before?

Definitely. As you move through life you shouldn't lose track of what is important to you. I want to highlight the fun element in my work. A lot of the pieces are made up of drawings from sketch books that I make while having fun; hanging out, eating and drinking with friends.

You told me earlier that you're working seven days a week. With so much preparation to do for the show, how do you balance working between the studio and the street?

I try to make it all roll into one. Painting outside is like an exercise for me. I stay true to my graffiti roots and allow those experiences to fuel the paintings. I'm not knocking the kinds of artists who replicate what they do on canvas in the street, but I'm just kind of more lazy when I paint outside. I do it for the fun. I do it for the experience of hopping over hedges.
