Brusk is part of the collaborative group DMV. In this clip each individual member is briefly profiled:

The DMV group is gaining in popularity and they have been included in traditional gallery shows in France and also London, England.

Brusk was born in the year 1976.

I enjoy the way Brusk and also the previous post, Will Barras, both blend abstraction with the figure. The sense of movement in Barras’ work is similar to the Brusk’s subjects seem to drip and dissolve before our very eyes!

And the master Norman Rockwell!

In this clip we take a look at a wonderful incident that occurred in 1914. It was World War 1 and the men from two different countries put down their guns for one night of peace and celebrated Christmas.

This was made into a wonderful movie and here we see the street art interpretation. The street art is from London and Berlin. The war story featured soldiers from France, Scotland, and Germany. The movie is called Joyeux Noel and I enjoyed it! The clip is from the Telegraph U.K. :

And Frederick Hammersley, like Warhol also designed holiday greeting cards for others.

And representing the street art movement, Mr. Brainwash.

Eko is a wonderful street artist working in a geometric abstract style with flat bold color.

Eko was born in Wandsworth, London in the year 1974. He began tagging and writing graffiti in the mid 1980s in the Hull area. This area of the city has many abandoned warehouses and buildings perfect for street artists use.

Eko would later work in the Bristol area.

The artist uses a wide variety of shapes in his work. Some even look like letters. With this wonderful mixture of shapes the artist is able to create movement. The artist doesn’t do much work in smaller canvases sizes, lets hope for some small treasures from this great artist soon!

I enjoy the style of this Brazilian artist. Though people in the art world know about the Pandolpho Twins, Os Gemeos  from Brazil, other artists such as Ricardo AKN do a great job depicting the figure in a modernist style. The artist has been very successful as a commercial artist working with companies including Pepsi, Ellus, and Nike.

Artists of the moment…….Street Artist Collective Mentalgassi

 

Mentalgassi is a street art collective based out of Berlin, Germany that consists of three people. The group met whilst in their mid teens and experimented with writing graffiti at that time.

Mentalgassi is their chosen name. A favorite idea of the group was to go for a walk. Mentalgassi is supposed to mean that we take our mind for a walk.

Their signature work is to take a black and white photograph, enlarge, and then glue it to a highly visible public location. The first work of this style was produced in 2007.  This also led to a series in which U-Bahn ticket validator machines had a person’s face with the mouth open to take the ticket. The group is full of very creative and unique ideas:

 

 

 

In this clip we view a great idea! Heads on ballons! What a great idea and also well done on the execution of this project:

In this clip we view a Mentalgassi version of a flag. Their concept using paint, graphic design, and many layers of sweat!
