Peter Gibson aka Roadsworth

Posted on | February 6, 2013

Street Artist ROADSWORTH (born in Toronto) is known from spray-painting bicycle paths onto streets. What people might not know is what seems to be en vogue around the globe at present: Street artists who used to face high fines for their illegal artyfication of streets and walls in the public space, seem to get off with lenient sentences and now do more and more commissioned art work in cities –> i.e. they are hired and paid by different stakeholders (galleries, private investors, etc) and their work is accepted by municipalities.

  

   

Over the last decade, Gibson has moved from spray-painting to stencilled street art, his images ranging from bird nests to prehistoric fish and flowers:

MENTALGASSI

Posted on | August 20, 2012

Im Sommer 2012 traf ich Lewis von Mentalgassi, einer 3köpfigen Street Artist Truppe aus Deutschland. Ein Privileg, wie sich nach der gemeinsamen Tour durch die Trendbezirke Wiens und einem äußerst lehrreichen Interview herausstellte.

DK: Was machst Du bei Mentalgassi?

Lewis: Wir verwenden dafür verschiedene Begriffe, wie urban entertainment oder Kunst im öffentlichen Raum. Was wir versuchen, ist mit immer neuen Mitteln die Leute aus dem Alltag rauszureißen. Dass es ein Augenzwinkern gibt durch die Arbeit, die man macht, dass es die Leute abfotografieren wollen, teilen wollen, oder dass wir dazu inspirieren, dass die Leute selber was machen wollen.

Israel’s Broken Fingaz Crew, made up of Unga, Kip, Deso and Tant, a group of designers, illustrators and street artists from Jerusalem, have moved onto Vienna, posting shots of some of their new murals from around the city. Created in conjunction with their exhibit currently being held at the city’s INOPERAbLE Gallery, the works are all black outlines on a white frame, created quickly without the knowledge (or consent) or the city’s police department, in true Street Art style.

SWANSKI IN VIENNA – RETAIL THEATER

Posted on | August 5, 2012

District7, a Viennese boutique focussing on clothing of Berlin fashion labels, street art books and design gadgets, opened in early 2012. Highlight of the store that I came across today is not necessarily what they offer to buy but their wall design. Street art artist Swanksi painted the walls in such an eye-catching manner, that my street art-buddy Gregor and I abruptly stopped while walking past the store and peeking inside. It really was the wall design that magnetically pulled us inside and made me spend a little fortune on the latest books on street art. Michael, the shop owner, has a big passion for street art books.

If you’re into books on the topic of urban interventions, street art and contemporary typography and tagging, browse through his portfolio. –> District7, Siebensterngasse 35, 7th district – www.district7.at
