outlaw street art

with an introduction by banksy, trespass: a history of uncommissioned urban art is a large-format book featuring the unsolicited works of over 150 artists. spanning illicit performances, social movements and protests, as well as several other outdoor interventions, these works suggest deeper social and cultural implications of the phenomenon.

a shape without a frame

one of the coolest places i had a chance to check out while visiting buenos aires this past september was hollywood in cambodia. located over the post street bar, the space gives urban artists, national and foreign, the opportunity not only to show their work in the gallery but also to participate in all sorts of events promoted by the collectives running the place, namely malatesta, bs as stencil, and run don’t walk. for you to have an idea of how active these guys are, just this month they had a fanzine festival (bs as fanzine fest) and a stencil making workshop. the other cool thing is the buenos aires street art tour run by graffitimundo, the tour guides take you all over the city showing you some amazing art work as well as some hidden treasures. the excursion departs from and returns to the bar under the gallery. seriously, it could not be more convenient. it really is worth a visit. the guys running the place are super nice and will be more than happy to show you around.
