Kilmany-Jo Liversage: Venice Biennale 2013

Kilmany-Jo Liversage, aka Orda, is a Cape Town based artist who uses spray paint and acrylic paint to create portraits with a graffiti look and feel. Her portraits aren’t really about people, rather about recognising common ground in those we don’t know.

Street Art by DALeast

DALeast is a Chinese born artist that lives and works in Capetown, South Africa. The 29-year-old, who keeps his real name a secret, has been making art since he was three. His unusual paintings, which are sometimes hundreds of feet across, look three dimensional and appear to have been created out of thousands of tiny metal shards. He has tagged walls on nearly every continent, from Cape Town, Melbourne, New York and London, as well as his native China.

Graffiti Fine Art

Graffiti Fine Art from Jared Levy on Vimeo.

65 graffiti artists from 13 countries descend upon São Paulo, Brazil for the 1st Biennial International “Graffiti Fine Art” Exhibition. In an art world where semantics matter, graffiti artists from around the world wonder what exactly is ‘Graffiti Fine Art’. After all, once graffiti leaves the street… is it even graffiti at all?

Talking Graffiti with Ivan Miller

I met up with Castle during my 5 month study in Wellington, New Zealand. Coming from South Africa, Ivan has an interesting background that forms his perspectives and pieces to be unlike any I’ve really seen before. There is a great array of graffiti style artwork in the area, and much of it coming from his crew, Pirates. It was great to get to talk and paint with an artist of the area and see how perspectives on art like this change country to country.”

Introducing another new strain to the ever growing Spraying Bricks channel, the KREW series. To start this series off is a collective that emerged on the scene in 2008, 40HK. Consisting of Artists INKFETISH, JASIK and POER. There are 14 members of 40HK in total with heads based in Norway, New Zealand, Melbourne, South Africa, London and Kent. 40HK stands for forty hit combo from the classic video game Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe a statement on their out of this world style.

Spraying Bricks joined the crew as they embarked on their biggest wall to date. Situated on Leonard Street opposite the creative den that in the Book Club and the famous Pure Evil gallery, the guys have a prime spot in the heart of Shoreditch, accompanying artwork from the likes of STIK. The mural is heavily based on the theme of the 70’s and 80’s TV show RAINBOW and with the influence of graffiti fused with characters they have created a truly colourful and amazing piece.
