i’ve got banksy fever and so does nyc

After years of waiting, the time has finally arrived! Banksy, one of my favorite street artists of all time, is back in the States stirring up controversy on the streets of New York City.

a behind the scenes look at johnnie walker mid autumn festival packaging and ad design

When thinking of the words Art Direction, what comes to mind? For me, this video is an inspiring example of true creative Art Direction from start to finish. Shotopop, a creative agency in London was hired to create the Johnnie Walker 2013 Mid Autumn Festival Campaign for the Chinese market. This included a set of Key Visuals, special edition packaging for the Black and Gold Label bottles, and a special edition Blue Bottle design. The whole shebang, really. This years visuals would be loosely focussed around the legend of the Immortal Tree on the moon, Wu Gang, and the Jade Rabbit.

TAE is getting inspired for the upcoming holiday… Día de los Muertos or The Day of the Dead! For those of you who don’t know, this international cultural tradition that began in Mexico, celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, drink, dancing and traditions passed down from generation to generation. Every year, the OMA (Oceanside Museum of Art) brings this holiday to life with an exciting event called Art After Dark.

presenting space-sna

TAE is excited to introduce and take part in organizing SPACE-SNA. My friend Christopher Konecki, the same guy who brought you Warehouse 1425, is the founder and curator of this one night event in Santa Ana, CA. I will be there through the process with all the artists and to enjoy SPACE-SNA opening on September 7th. No rules will restrict the artists’ creativity. No agenda will bind them. This is an artist driven project that breaks away from the confines of the traditional gallery structure.

daleast is currently a human being and painting walls worldwide.

In DALeast’s bio he describes himself as “currently a human being”. To me he is more than just an “average joe”. He is an incredibly talented street artist who’s style is unique, innovative, and in fact is influencing a change in today’s Street Art Culture. DALeast travels around using the world as his canvas. Some of his most recent 2013 works have been seen in London UK, Tronto Italy, Vienna Austria, Bristol UK, Honolulu Hawaii, and San Fransisco California.
