Joshua Allen Harris

Joshua Allen Harris

Joshua Allen Harris creates inflatable street sculptures made of trash bags that are attached to grates over subway lines. The sculptures fill with air as the trains move under and deflate as they pass. Check out the videos of the creations below. Unfortunately I cannot find any recent works by the artist. It appears that he had a spurt of work around 2008 and hasn’t kept a website for showcasing his new creations. More below. (more…)

Shepard Fairey “Freedom of the Press” / “Printed Matters”

Shepard Fairey "Freedom of the Press"

Shepard Fairey has a show opening tonight at his Subliminal Projects Gallery. The show is called “Printed Matters” and according to the artist, focuses on the concept of mass production as much of his art already does. To commemorate the show, he is releasing a very limited silkscreen print in an odd size of 11″x16″ for only $25.  As usual, the print is signed and numbered from an edition of 300. This print features the iconic loom image last used on a 2002 print, with this one adding much more collage texture to the image. If you’re interested, you can try your luck at obeygiant tomorrow, Friday, September 17th at a random time. Full image below. (more…)

Shepard Fairey “Woody Guthrie”

Shepard Fairey "Woody Guthrie"

Shepard Fairey’s latest portrait is one of his best to date, and it also breaks from the normal form factor that Fairey works in. This portrait is printed on the same 18″x24″ stock that obey prints normally come on, but the image size does not fill the sheet, as to preserve the composition of Fariey’s painting based on the photograph by Sid Grossman.

This print is an edition of 450, signed and numbered, at a price of $65, limit 1 per person. The print will go online at a random time on Thursday, August 19th at Obey Giant.

More information on the release of this print and words from Shepard about Woody Guthrie can be read at Obey Giant. Full image below. (more…)

Scraper Bikes

Tyrone Stevenson rocks.  In late 2008, I was staying with a couple friends in the Bay.  They showed me a youtube video with some kids out of Oakland rapping on scraper bikes.  It was cool.  It’s getting cooler.  Read the brief interview and watch the video.  If you’re a bicycle enthusiast, someone who appreciates people having fun with colors, or like to look at social issues through the arts, you’re in for a treat.

It’s fun design with a bright future.  And it’s in motion.
