Big up to Den and Coun from Extralargos crew Spain. Very honour to meet you guys.
Check out this amazing new Mural by the French Crew Da Mental Vaporz. Avec, Dran, Bom K, Sowat, Kan, Brusk, Blo, Gris, and Jaw painted this Massive multi-story building as part of the Crimes of Minds Event. DMV continues to show the world the diversity and scope that graffiti can entail. In this mural each artist using their own individual styles yet cohesively being able to bring it all together in one image. Narrative in nature yet being able keep in line with their roots of graffiti. Immensely talented Da Mental Vapors again impresses and stands tall amongst the diverse group of other artists painting. We have said it before. Watch out for the DMV’sÂ as they keep their momentum going, we are sure there will be new major projects in the works soon. Special thanks to Morac19 for the pictures.

New Video from French Artist Hopare. The artist paints a portrait and also a piece, which he documents then immediately buffs after completion. Near the end of the video L’art est ephemere is written across the wall, translating to art is ephemeral. A nice point is made in the video about the temporary state of our artform and its constant need to be renewed and replenished.

How and Nosm touched down in LA recently as they get ready for their upcoming exhibition at Known Gallery titled “Achtung”. Their first line of business was to paint an enormous wall in Los Angeles as part of the LA Freewalls Project. How & Nosm are no strangers to large scale murals so it was exciting to watch them tackle yet another monster wall. With this new mural installation How & NosmÂ show us not only what is capable from our current graffiti artists, but it also shows us how far we have come as a culture. When I look back over the last 20 years I cant remember a time when we had such free reign across the globe on so many monumental walls. It is great to see artists like How & Nosm getting the opportunity to show what is possible. We all know the problems with Los Angeles and its current stance on murals. See Sabers Petition here. It is great that there are still bright spots and organizations like this that are actively securing walls for artists.
Known Gallery seems to be on a roll,Â once again they are able bring an important show “Achtung” to Los Angeles. There are not many artists that can go from painting a multi story mural, to painting a canvas and not miss a beat. Most artists have their strengths in one, over the other. How & Nosm fortunately for us do not. Their gallery work is just as important and intense as any mural they paint. Coming from a Graffiti background How & Nosm are able to contribute to the Art world in the same manner they have contributed to ours. By creatingÂ groundbreaking art there is no line between either. We cant wait to see the final opening pictures. We know that it will be impressive and event not to be missed. So Make sure you dont miss it. If you are anywhere near Los Angeles Oct 15th do your self a favor and go.
