Heavy Artillery crew member Ponk has good stuff to come. But at the moment, we found this series of pieces and sketches made under the alias Curtis particularly interesting… We met up with him to ask him some questions and let him explain this duality and show us around in the universe which surrounds his graffiti.
The pieces by Ponk which we are known to stands out due to its truly pleasant balance: Somewhere between simple styles and wild style, very precise structures and cuts with spontaneous forms. Can you explain to us how you got to have this style?
For the past 2-3 years I’ve been doing a style that’s been very easy for me to do… very fun, very spontaneous like you said. It’s much more fun. Sometimes I don’t have time because I’ve got my son, so I can spend half an hour, one hour on a piece maximum, and it’s quicker, it’s fun, it’s one color, it looks fresh on the wall. Usually I try to find a space where I don’t have to worry about the background with emulsions and all these things. (more…)
It seems like the opening of Vapor-Palmera, the solo expo of graffiti artist Osier which was held at LAB‘s headquarters in Seville, became a big success.
For us which didn’t have the opportunity to attend the show, curated by Crótalo & Triángulo, at least we can enjoy this video of the event to get an idea of how fresh the presentation was.
In homage of the victims in the recent killing at Garissa University College, Kenya, where 147 students were brutally murdered, Ausias Pérez has sent us this exclusive handstyle. MTN World wants to in solidarity join the cause against these horrible acts, and all sorts of violent acts in general, no matter what reason it might have.
For this Saturday we bring you a medley of four videos. (more…)
