graffiti http://design.org/tags/graffiti en Tales You Lose: Coin Recreations by Andre Levy http://design.org/blog/tales-you-lose-coin-recreations-andre-levy <p>Tales you Lose is an ongoing project by <a href="http://talesyoulose.tumblr.com/" target="Andre Levy">Andre Levy</a>, a Brazilian designer based in Frankfurt, Germany. Levy takes a variety of coins and hand-paints new and familiar faces on each one, giving a carbon-copied object its own life. Often, it only takes a few strategic lines and blocks of color over the coin base to form an alternate, recognizable character. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div

Cities Program http://design.org/blog/bringing-public-art-back-askew-ones-new-mural-los-angeles-sister-cities-program <p>On April 21st, a new mural was unveiled at "LA Freewalls Inside" at <a href="http://www.lalaarts.com/" target="LALA Gallery">LALA Gallery</a>. Why is this noteworthy? Unbeknownst to me and likely to the majority of the population, in 2002 Los Angeles prohibited the creation of mural work (on public or private buildings). The Los Angeles Freewalls project hopes to change that.</p> <p><img src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog-full-scale/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_00.jpg" alt="design, la, mural" title="design, la, mural" class="imagecache-blog-full-scale" /></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="416" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_01.jpg?1335832838" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_00.jpg?1335832945" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="652" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_02_0.jpg?1335832946" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="682" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_03.jpg?1335832947" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_04.jpg?1335832947" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="250" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_05.jpg?1335832948" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_06.jpg?1335832948" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="830" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_07.jpg?1335832949" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/bringing-public-art-back-askew-ones-new-mural-los-angeles-sister-cities-program" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/bringing-public-art-back-askew-ones-new-mural-los-angeles-sister-cities-program#comments activism design graffiti losangeles street art video Tue, 01 May 2012 00:38:20 +0000 wardandrews 4217 at http://design.org Graffiti-Influenced Paintings and Portraits by Lou Ros http://design.org/blog/graffiti-influenced-paintings-and-portraits-lou-ros <p>Using a mixture of acrylics, oils, sprays and pencils, <a href="http://louros.fr/" target="Lou Ros">Lou Ros</a>'s work is an elegant combination of fine art and graffiti elements. The 26-year-old French artist began doing street art with his friends at 17 and later transitioned to painting murals and other works. </p> <p>He became bored of the structure, repetition and perfection and took a decidedly more forceful approach to art, resulting in these portraits that are ripe with emotion and intensity. My favorites are his snapshot-like works from his faces and portraits series. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd">
