More “Rap Quotes” Street Signs By Jay Shells

You may remember last year when Jay Shells first kicked off his idea of putting street signs with rap quotes near the location that the quote was referencing.  He was back at it recently (and still has more to come).  To date, he’s created a total of 68 site-specific signs around New York, so if you see one be sure to take a pic.

Check out the newest batch of signs (20+ pics) over on ANIMAL NY.

Street Art: LeBron James #StankDontIt

Just posted this on my Heat blog.  If you saw the Instagram video that LeBron posted on June 21st after winning his second chip, you’d get it.  Not many details about who made it, but its located in Downtown Miami.  From the looks of it, its starting to pop up at other places too.

Art Exhibit: Kazuki Takamatsu’s “Japanese Ideology of Puberty”

Japanese artist Kazuki Takamatsu will be presenting his first solo exhibit at the Corey Helford Gallery in California.  Check out some of the press release below:

On Saturday, April 13, 2013, Corey Helford Gallery presents the “Japanese Ideology of Puberty,” featuring the light and shadow paintings of Japanese artist Kazuki Takamatsu, his first solo show with the gallery.

Takamatsu’s paintings of contemporary awakenings are a catharsis of tonalities. “I use computer graphics-digital-and painting-analog-to make a work and it indicates the emotion of boys and girls metaphorically,” says Takamatsu of his painting method. Through the computer graphic technique of depth mapping, three-dimensional space is digitally visualized in a series of multiple depth plains. Takamatsu hand paints the emotions of his teenage subjects modeled on deep computer visual space. “Each graduation from surface to depth means the distance and there is no light and shadow. The color of black and white are metaphor for truth and evil, race and religion.” With acrylic black and white paints and gouaches, Takamatsu renders his girls with a method mediated on social fields of sexual identity, depth-fields mapping emotions engaging with a “systematic society.”

“Japanese Ideology of Puberty” will exhibit twelve oil paintings painted in acrylic and gouache, focusing on the emotive depth of coming of age. Of his painting, “The Flu” depicting a virus complicating life and transmitted by people, he visualizes metamorphosis. “The information, society and people always keep changing,” says Takamatsu of his ephemeral figures’ world, a vibrant, noir mapping of the rites of youth, where growing-up is a surreal awakening, a beauty transcending technocracy.

The opening reception will take place on Saturday, April 13 at Corey Helford Gallery. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through May 11, 2013.

Video: "Rap Quotes" Street Art Project by Jay Shells

Pretty dope idea.  Jay Shells tracks the streets mentioned in rhymes, goes to the spot and adds a little street art in the form of a sign.  Hopefully this project becomes bigger in the future.
