    krink.com saidOn Friday April 8th, G-Shock & Krink celebrated their recent partnership with a unique exhibition of Craig Costello’s work – Spray Paint the Walls.

    Costello’s artwork, an abstraction inspired by his history of working with urban environments and architecture. Costello sprayed gallons of paint onto the walls filling the white space with bold color from the ceiling to the floor, the diluted-paint dripping down in vertical lines forming a pattern. The color and shapes have an organic feel that contrast with the hard lines and shapes of the urban environment. Other walls featured small framed monochrome drawings created using Krink on paper and displayed a vibrant range of color.

    haze street mural graf graffiti painting street art
    new mural @ standard hotel, la


    At 40’ x 6’, I thought the wall was an ideal dimension for the kind of painting which calls for a full stroke top to bottom,
    the same way we would have approached a T2B on a train car from a platform or catwalk back in the day…
    I also thought it would be a good place to start working with a combination of spray paint and traditional brush,
    looking to conceptually fuse together different references through the juxtaposition of technique and materials.

    Artist says city erased mural it paid him to paint
    Artist Joel Richardson says the city has painted over a popular Dupont St. mural that it paid him $2,000 to create, an apparent misfire in Mayor Rob Ford’s war on graffiti.

    A city spokeswoman says the railway underpass wall was returned to drab grey because Richardson’s artwork was unauthorized, uncommissioned, political and may have “referred to (Prime Minister) Stephen Harper.”

    Richardson says in 2008 then-Davenport councillor Adam Giambrone’s office asked him to paint a mural on the north wall of the underpass west of Lansdowne Ave., on the funky Junction Triangle neighbourhood’s eastern edge.

    The colourful scene of faceless men in suits, dollar signs and hearts, funded mostly through donations from local businesses, proved popular enough, he says, that Giambrone’s staff asked him to paint another mural on the south wall, and helped him get a $2,000 commission from the city’s Clean and Beautiful secretariat.

    The newly re-opened Wooden Waves skatepark, based in renowned UK skate and surf destination Newquay, is now home to a one of a kind mural courtesy of Sutsu.

    On Saturday 6th August, illustrator and Sutsu collaborator Jake Blanchard brought his unique style of illustration inspired by the environment, music and mythology to one of the ramps at Wooden Waves. The skatepark is a pilot initiative by Newquay Town Council in partnership with XtraVert social enterprise to find a sustainable, effective way of running the skatepark. Visitors were able to watch the mural take shape throughout the day and Tim Walker from Westbound TV filmed it on behalf of Sutsu.

    Electric Projected 2011 (Full Show)

    On the evening of October 1st at the intersection of Main Street and East Main in Beacon NY we shut down the street and had party. When the sun set 24 animated shorts were projected onto the facade of the Electric Windows Building. Each animation was inspired by one of the pieces of art on the building. DJ Bobby Collins rocked a custom mix during the animations. After the main event Bobby C Sound TV DJ'd his famous Audio/Visual DJ Sets and continued the projections on the building, everyone danced in the streets...
