Roadsworth began painting the streets of Montreal in the fall of 2001. Initially motivated by a desire for more bike paths in the city and a questioning of "car culture" in general, he continued to develop a language around street markings and other elements of the urban landscape using a primarily stencil based technique. In the fall of 2004, Roadsworth was arrested for his nocturnal activities and charged with 53 counts of mischief. Despite the threat of heavy fines and a criminal record he received a relatively lenient sentence which he attributes in part to the public support he received subsequent to his arrest. Since that time, Roadsworth has received various commissions for his work and continues to be active in both visual art and music

OaKoAk is a French artist who makes the city a more funny place. He loves to play with urban elements. Why? Just for the lulz.

Exit through the gift shop

A lot of people mentioned this movie on previous posts (lots of those comments were deleted by blogger, but I'm not going to complain again) so I decided to create a post about it.

This film is just brilliant, it tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a French immigrant in LA, and his obsession with street art. The film charts Guetta's constant documenting of his every waking moment on film, from a chance encounter with his cousin, the artist Invader, to his introduction to a host of street artists with a focus on Shepard Fairey and Banksy, whose anonymity is preserved by obscuring his face and altering his voice, to Guetta's eventual fame as a street artist himself.

Apparently Tuesday was not a good day to start a blog. Blogger had some stability problems and decided to temporally delete all the posts and recent changes, so basically I lost everything.

As for today, I recovered my posts but not the comments and I had to manually recover all the design and configuration.

Anyway, I'm back and I hope to see you all back.
