Many years has passed by since Barcelona’s writer Rocky discovered Brazil for the first time. Capoeira which is one of his greatest passions in life, was the main reason for him to convert this enormous country into his second home. As he puts it himself, ‘wherever I go I bring with me who I am, and I am graffiti’, and Brazil has also been the second playground to develop him as a graffiti writer in his life.
Here is a trailer of this short documentary where Rocky brings us along on his quests through the largest country in South America. The full video will be launched at Mtn-world next week.
123Klan, (Scien and Klor) are one of the most spoken of couples in international graffiti today. They have recently put themselves to work after their two decades of graffiti, celebrating it by releasing a collection of their last productions. Graffiti and design with distinct styles which goes deep into the art of typography, logos and characters is to be seen in this book.
Nothing less than 304 pages composes this enormous collection of works in a luxurious package (we where told it comes with a engraving in gold). All from graffiti murals with their particular lettering styles and iconography to designs on clothes and collaborations with writes like Dabs-Myla, Cope2, Rime, Flying Fortress… and the list is long. Designs, sign-painting, stickers, bombing…
Every sample of the book, which obviously comes signed by the artists, includes a double sheet of stickers.
‘A visual explosion, a mass of lumps and bumps, angles and recesses, mascots and symbols that stretch out ad infinitum, 123Klan has never stopped setting graphic ambushes. Extruded lettering, forays into cartoons and manga, and arrogance tinged with humor are just few of the ingredients in their outstanding portfolio. By harnessing vector drawing and the infinite possibilities it provides, they jacked up the intensity of their work and infiltrated the wall of publishing and publicity with all the raw energy of graffiti, smoothing down its edges without skimping on the effect.‘

Better late than never as they say… And this is definitely the case here.
Two months ago the urban arts festival Asalto was held for the 8th time, and once again with some help from Montana Colors. There is no better way to present what went down there than through this top quality video clip.
The man behind the visual artwork is Brazo de Hierro, and he shows well what was going on in the streets of Zaragoza when a wave of urban artists came to take over the city for a couple of days. Magnificent!
This summer we published a piece on the work of ETAM Crew and their participation in the ‘Volvo Art Sessions‘. A quite peculiar event lead by a car brand. Today we look back and take a peek at the corresponding session carried out by the beautiful artist Blanda Eggenschwiler.With aerosol as her main tool, Blanda goes through with her performance using different techniques like stencils and screen-printing. We hope you enjoy it.
