PRAY 4 PHILIPPINES
Yesterday we learned that popstar Justin Bieber got in trubs with the law (again) after he hosted a party rager that resulted in a few disturbing the peace complaints by his neighbors. But before The Biebs played party host in his home, he was moved Saturday evening to do something to help out his fellow man. Bieber, a budding graffiti artist these days, decided to collaborate with some guy named Milk Tyson on a piece of street art that is meant to help raise awareness (and funds) for the victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines. Click below to see a photo of JB posing with his charitable masterpiece and find out how he plans to raise funds for people in need in the Philippines. More »

He only made $420
For the past week or so, famed graffiti artist Banksy has been running all over NYC, NY putting up new artwork for fans to seek out and admire for an art residency he is calling Better Out Than In. As is his style, Banksy has been working in secret installing his graffiti artwork and, in some instances, orchestrating elaborate art installations. On Saturday, Banksy set up a stall next to Central Park where he sold original spray paint artwork for $60 each, a HUGE bargain considering his artwork sells for $10,000+ at auction. The only problem for collectors was that no one knew that the stall was selling original Banksy pieces. Big cities like NYC have lots of bootleg stalls that sell cheap reproductions of Banksy‘s work so, it makes sense why most people would overlook a stall featuring “his artwork”. The Art Sale was just the latest of Banky‘s brilliant art installations. The video above, published on Banksy‘s official website, shows the world how his Art Sale went. Click below to read what Banksy has to say about his little gag and find out if he plans on orchestrating another Art Sale any time soon.

The beautiful high 70-degree weather here in SoCal was just too hard to resist yesterday so I finally managed to get out of the house and enjoy it. For the past few days, I’ve been chillin’ in my home doing a whole lotta nothing but yesterday, I decided to get out and enjoy the fresh air. I didn’t really leave the house with an agenda, I just wanted to get outside and soak up the sun. I decided to go for a long walk along Melrose Ave. and, wouldn’t you know it, I inadvertently did some shopping. I’m basically blaming it on the beautiful weather :D More »

Yesterday was a mostly quiet but very productive day for me. I spent much of the day redecorating my home. I did some furniture shopping on Friday and early Saturday morning it was all delivered. I still have a couple more things to get but overall, my place is coming together. David and I have very different decorating styles and for the entire time we lived together, much of our home was decorated to his liking. While I didn’t mind the minimal sparcity, it’s not really the way that I would’ve done things. Now is the time for me to make my home more me. More »

Yesterday was a marginally bizzy day for me. I had a bit of running around to do in the afternoon and then last night, David and I met up with Tam and Rob for a long overdue dinner/hang session. Because David and I have to fly back East this weekend for another wedding (#6 of 8, if you’re keeping count) I had to run a few errands before we fly off again. I managed to get everything done, meet up with David as his office and then make our way to Silverlake to meet up with Tam and Rob. More »
This is definitely an exciting time for London; the 2012 Olympics are underway and many of us just witnessed the amazing spectacle that was their opening ceremony (we’ll try to forgive NBC for cutting out Emeli Sandé‘s tribute performance). But well-know street artists like Banksy and Mau Mau have a different take on the London Olympics. A few days before the opening ceremony police started cracking down heavily on street artists, even making several arrests. They vowed to remove any graffiti they found, but that didn’t stop Banksy and a few other from having their see. Peep the gallery for two new works from Banksy and other street artists whose graffiti is mixing (and mashing up against) contemporary London politics and culture. I also couldn’t resist adding a few more Banksy works that were, technically, unrelated. Checkie out!
Street Art Makes Life Happy
here are plenty of good reasons to be semi-addicted to Instagram– Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Swizz Beatz are a few celebs with very popular accounts, and rightfully so. Here’s one more reason to make goo-goo eyes at what is, arguably, Apple‘s coolest app ever: @Instagrafite (sounds like “insta-grafitti”). This gallery of all things street art just had me lost in a seemingly infinite vortex of beautiful, outrageous images on concrete. Get lost with me inside.
Plus, The Carriage Kate will Ride on Her Wedding Day Is Revealed
We are just about a month away (can you believe it?) from the Royal Wedding of Prince William of Wales and his longtime love Kate Middleton and things in the UK are reaching a fevered pitch of excitement. This week, a new piece of graffiti art went up on the streets of London and altho it appears NOT to be a Banksy, it is a similar tribute to the upcoming royal nuptials. Additionally, the carriage that Kate will ride in on her way from the altar as newly crowned royalty on her wedding day has been revealed. Check out the graffiti tribute and Kate‘s carriage below.

A new confirmed Banksy graffiti art piece went up in the Los Angeles area on the day after the Academy Awards (where Banksy lost the Best Documentary Oscar, unfortunately) and while that alone is interesting, what is more important about this story is that a man was photographed as the graffiti was being painted. Because Banksy‘s identity remains a mystery, some are guessing that the man photographed this week may be Banksy himself. More »

Last week, new graffiti artwork by Banksy started showing up all over Los Angeles, CA ahead of this weekend’s Academy Awards (which has nominated his film Exit Through the Gift Shop for the Best Documentary Oscar). Today we learn that Banksy has made his way a bit south of LA to do some tagging in San Diego, CA. Even tho Banksy took a little trip outside of LA, it’s clear that he is staying in SoCal … just in case he ends up winning an Academy Award this weekend. More »
