This Saturday, “The Non Gallery” is holding a show featuring artists Zombie, Koffinz, and KilleD. The event starts at 8 PM. Below is a promo video.
Last year, we started a weekly post called the “Sunday Links” attempting to bring a more diverse array of content to LeftCoastLetters. The post only lasted for a few months before dying out, not because of a lack of content, but because we got lazy and stopped writing the posts. Now we’re attempting to bring the post back, now on Wednesdays. Their are hundreds of quality websites and blogs documenting and writing about urban art from across the country and world. This post is meant to go over photos, videos, and articles from across the internet that don’t quite merit their own individual post. So without further ado, here is the very first Wednesday Roundup.
First, we bring you a post from the always impeccable Wooster Collective containing all of the pieces LA artist JR has put up over the past week. I photographed the one on Melrose, but didn’t have time over the weekend to make it to the rest. JR is at the top of his game right now, and his black and white faces, dominate entire neighborhoods.
I’m late on this, but Andrew Telling’s video documenting artist Conor Harrington trip to Israel and the West Bank is an incredibly well done, influential piece of work. The combination of Telling’s expert filming/editing and the narrative set up by Harrington’s work makes the video one of the best of the past year or so.
I know I’ve been writing a lot about Banksy recently, so I’m not going to write a whole new post, but Melrose&Fairfax have the beat on all the new Banksy pieces, and all Banksy related news in general. Banky’s “This Looks A Bit Like An Elephant” Here. The “Crayon House” as M&R has dubbed it Here, and a post about its defacement/removal Here. Finally, Banksy released his new book, “Cut it Out” for free in PDF form and you can find the download link Here.
