Always rains in London right? Not this bank holiday it was hot, it was sunny, there was a festival and it was hot.
In addition to this the sun remained long enough for the bicycle to come out and to spot a little bit of paint on walls. A mini taster now, but a lot more to follow, the summer floodgates have well and truly sprung.
Sokar Uno, a German artist of some note, typically using quite a real surreal style has been spraying in the Eastend. This is not to far from outdoor Hipster mecca that is London Fields.
More to follow shortly….
Now it is a case of avoiding being knocked off the bike
A StandardFact trip to Prague, well the architecture is amazing and gothic and dark and religious and old full of statues, more statues than Czechs. Also more Germans and and Yanks than Czechs come to think about it.
Few points to make:
Very beautiful but not for raves.
Loads of places to eat but you better want a lot of meat
Loads to drink but bloody hard to find a Bloody Mary (head to Chilli Bar)
From a distance
There was very little to note in the way of street art except for the best known Czech artistic street export, Pasta Oner. His playful colourful pieces have the air of an advertising style from days gone by, something a little Lichtenstein about the style. One such wall in Pargue 1 displays some of the vibrant art that Pasta Oner is known for. SF Likes a lot
Here are a few snaps
Big ‘like’ this…..
Religious building stencil
The Dude Company stencils
tri shade stencil
Then this weirdness….
See we said it was thin on the ground for street art
More Daft Punk teasers, this time a short sharp piece directed by long term Kanye collaborator Nabil Elderkin. The rather dreams clip is yet another example of how DP are releasing and hyping their new album through small, short, punchy soundbites and visualclips, creating just the right amount of expectation and buzz before unleashing the next stage.
Elderkin is clearly a talented guy (well he worked with the bat-bollock-crazy-shy-as-a-kid-with-ADD-on-a-sugar-rush-legend we know as Kanye) as well as Nas & Damien Marley and Seal and brands like Coca-Cola, Nike, Adidas and Oxfam
SF is looking forward to seeing the full film…. and the next release technique from our Gallic robots
