..the hull of the rusting Duke Of Lancaster has been used as a blank canvas by a host of international graffiti artists, who call themselves the DuDug collective..

..turning the ship into a floating art installation was the brainchild of former street artist Maurice Blunt, who spotted the Duke Of Lancaster from a train..

DuDug aims to transform The Duke into the largest open air art gallery in the country. Blunt told Wales Online she already has 22 artists signed up to the project and is negotiating with many more

This is (not) a story from a time long ago

”As soon as the Berlin Wall opened, an artists activist group reclaimed the site  as a cultural hub in the newly reunified city, taking it over..

Kunsthaus Tacheles

..they chose the name Tacheles for its location in the former Jewish quarter, after a Yiddish word meaning ‘to reveal’ or ‘to bring to a close’..

..this project by the group, Künstlerinitative Tacheles (Artists Initiative Tacheles), spread so quickly that the city government adopted a policy of leniency and delayed demolition by declaring the site a historic landmark..

Bridge in Tacheles

..artists signed a ten year lease in 1998 with owner Johannishof GmBH, but by the time it expired, ownership had been transferred to HSH Nordbank, extremely eager to remove the artists altogether..

..meanwhile, the building was painted in bright colors and held several sculptures using found objects . Tacheles held a cinema, performance space, workshops, and exhibition spaces..

About 400,000 tourists visited the site last year for a taste of the carefree past of Berlin, when artists flocked to former East Berlin for cheap rents and anything felt possible in the reunified city. ”

Before I Die is a public installation by New Orleans artist Candy Chang that prompts passersby to complete the sentence “Before I die I want to…” using colored chalk. The installation was filled out in only a day and you can see sections of the completed work here. Erase. Repeat. Awesome

Urban Cityscapes Spray Painted on Cardboard Panels by EVOL

German street artist EVOL (previously) is currently showing a number of new pieces atJonathan LeVine gallery. The new works feature urban facades spray painted with the use of stencils on flat sheets of cardboard. Much like his outdoor graffiti, these stencils display an uncanny attention to detail, depicting light and shadow that transforms mundane surfaces of consumer packaging into fascinating, seemingly multi-dimensional pieces of art.

Dead Church Installation

Given the fact that im a big fan of Kurt Schwitters or Raumlabor it was impossible for me not to like this big size installation by Revok and Jim Darling.

I first met JIM DARLING a few years ago in Miami when we were showing together in a group show. Jim is a super nice guy and his work blew me away and we stayed in contact every since. Jim recently visited me here in Detroit and we finally got to collaborate on something together. After cruising around for a bit we found this massive dead church and spent two days creating this really large installation inside using only materials already inside the church. It was fucking exhausting labor but well worth it since we had such a blast doing it.

We ended up carrying a massive organ up two flights of stairs, a piano, a TV, and a ton of other random shit to erect this gigantic monument.
