Printing Destroy & Rebuild today…

Posted in 1 by BLDG on May 29, 2009

We’re working with a great up and coming artist collective called, Destroy & Rebuild. They are a band of graffiti artist who used to destroy the city with their writing and now they are trying to enhance it with their artwork… hence the name.

We’re printing a new piece of theirs today and another one next week. We’ll have some process pics for you to take a peak at shortly, but until then… check them out here: DESTROY & REBUILD

Fefe Talavera: Brazilian Artist

Posted in Walls by BLDG on May 26, 2009

We’re big fans of Fefe Talavera right now. Her Picasso like nightmares have really caught our eye and we think she is worth talking about. Take a look for yourself and you be the judge!

Beyond Street Art

Posted in Walls by Mike on May 21, 2009

Its pretty amazing to watch the evolution of this crazy movement of art we call “street art”. To be perfectly honest I am a little sick of calling it street art. The term itself has such a drab unengaging ring to it. Some of what is being produced today goes beyond imagination. Here are some oldies but goodies…enjoy

classic BLU…this one never gets old

Neltner Super Sized

Posted in Walls by Mike on May 20, 2009

It has been a pretty productive day at the studio. We just completed this beast of a print by Keith Neltner. Standing 3 feet in length, this robust print just about consumed every last drop of black ink. I am sure the Neltner faithful will appreciate the labor that went into this one…

Animatronic Hot Dogs

Posted in Walls by Mike on May 18, 2009

Banksy has surfaced at a new show in NYC and this time he comes armed with animatronics. I really don’t think it gets any better than the reanimation of processed meat. My hat tips in your general direction Mr. Banks.

ApeSeven: The 5th Militia (process)

Posted in Walls by BLDG on May 14, 2009

Now that I’ve completely tired out pimpin’ out stuff everyone else is doing on the blog, I think we’ll turn towards showing you what we’re doing at The Building Walls.

We’re working with about 9 artists (and counting) to print and sell their exclusive pieces online and in our gallery. After waht seemed like an eternity of planning, branding, logistics and what not… we’re finally printing.

Now’s the part of the post where I share photos: (even more on our Flickr page)

We’ve got a rad stop motion piece we’re making of this 6 color print… that should be up today or tomorrow, so check back soon.

Mark Dean Veca Mural

Posted in Walls by BLDG on May 13, 2009

I really like the fact that Mark is very honest about his art. He’s not trying to derive some bullshit idea of what his work represents so deeply that it becomes abstract for the sake of being abstract. I think his comment about one not having to have gone to art school to appreciate art is right on point. I think to a degree the art world has lost its roots in that respect.

Posted in Walls by BLDG on May 10, 2009

Great English artist, James Roper, has done some amazing things lately. I stumbled across this image recently and had to throw it up here. Who doesn’t love the mix of explosive color and topless chicks!? Check out James’ site when you get a chance.
