I reeeeeally was trying to wait til this hit the street but….uumfff! It’s too cool! My friend Russell King just sent me a progress shot from a piece he’s working on for his new street series. That background is crushing it

John Fekner – Some thoughts to ponder along the artistic path of life.

16. Creativity is a stream that runs alongside your life. Instinctively, there’s a time & place for the artist to jump in whether it’s calm, fluid or raging.

15. It is to an artist’s advantage to challenge oneself by taking risks – not foolish ones, to discover solutions in unique and unexpected ways.

14. Artists must learn to be fulfilled with an audience of one: to accept the silence of self. Once that stage is realized, vision is limitless.

13. When hope and expectation turn to disappointment, take a break from the actual work and simply refocus your creativity on centering oneself.

12. Good Vibrations: bells, teas, chimes, chanting, humming, spices, herbs and perhaps a pet. It’s all therapeutic for your mind, body and soul.

11. Stay home on either a Friday or a Saturday night. Have fun and make art. Be different.

10. Things that should change; don’t. Things that shouldn’t change; do. Change is inevitable, so be open and accepting, taking a balanced approach on the path of life.

9. Always have some hidden or quirky interest that you enjoy ‘alone’. Just you. Something that someone else might consider ‘odd’. There’s nothing wrong with ‘odd’. It is part of the journey of becoming an artist who is curious to discover new things in order to becoming complete with one self.

8. Read autobiographies of people from various fields. It might provide some advice and insight as to how they survived when they were younger and not yet established in their life’s work.

 7. Identify and participate within some other community completely separate from your home and work environment.

6. Beliefs are good. Believe in yourself, your artwork, your family, your friends and some mightier power of your choice.

5. Travel engenders new scenarios in which one meets new people and their cultures providing a learning environment of acceptability, understanding and embracing diversity throughout the world.

4. When a brilliant idea strikes you in the middle of the night or suddenly wakes you up – Never turn on the light. Keep a marker and white paper next to your bed. Write large in the dark and you will capture the true essence of the dream-thought. If you turn on the light, it prevents you from holding the magic; it disappears and you lose the essence of the fleeting thought and you wind up altering the initial idea.

3. Life is constantly changing- don’t be extreme or too rigid in your thinking, your technical process and creative art making. Allowing things to be open and fluid will allow for development, perspective and adaptability.

2. ‘Remembrance of Things Past’  Not to dwell or live in the past, but it is always important to remember the earlier stages of your growth and childhood. If you go back and visit your hometown during the daytime, it will mostly likely be a noisy and chaotic experience. But if you revisit at dawn, you might get a better sense of things really haven’t changed that much; the stillness and quiet in the early morning make it easy to rekindle memories and spark personal creativity.

1. Define your own alternate path of life and commit to it as an artist not as a ‘careerist’. The concept of ‘a career’ has all the social conditioning labels of being measured as a ‘success’ by society’s rules stamped all over it

Rain break from throwing paint at this wall in #Brewerytown. Side note, this is my first time using spray paint (besides small tags here and there). I keep telling myself “It’s probably fine because nothing matters.”

Next up in the #LW2014 line up is Caroline Caldwell (hugclub here on tumblr) from Philly! She creates gentle, sloping images that still speak to her graffiti roots. 


We’re excited to bring her to ATL this summer!RSVP to the conference here.



I am humbled and excited to join the Living Walls, the City Speaks team this summer to paint a wall in Atlanta! Thanks to Mónica Campana for putting faith in me and extending the opportunity to paint alongside artists with far more experience. I think Living Walls has consistently done a exemplary job at taking risks on lesser known artists (such as myself), and it’s a high honor to join artists whom I’ve admired for such a special event.

Viral Art: How the internet has shaped street art and graffiti →

Viral Art is a free ebook by RJ Rushmore, which examines how the histories of street art and graffiti have been shaped by communication technologies and why the future of street art and graffiti may lie in digital interventions.

This is a FREE BOOK. Information should be free and accessible to the public, in the same way that street art does not hide itself inside the white walls of a gallery. This book is a must read.

Rj Vandalog Rushmore’s questions and critiques are the only interesting dialogue in the street art community.

loganhicks:

Rj Vandalog Rushmore’s questions and critiques are the only interesting dialogue in the street art community. I’m not even saying they are right or wrong, I’m just saying they are the only ones worth reading. The street art circle jerk where everyone says “that’s cool” is just such a fucking yawn fest. 80% (and this is a generous estimate) of the work that is made is total and utter crap. So why is 90% of the conversation that takes place unfettered praise of mediocre work? The numbers just aren’t there. Why do people insist on thinking that just because someone was ‘created’ it’s good? If you put your work on a wall, in a gallery, in front of the pubic you are asking for the world to critique you. You want hugs? go ask your moms. She’ll love you no matter what. You want to make a living off of art? shut the fuck because some guy you don’t really care about doesn’t really like what you did. After you are dead the only testament to your career will be the work you leave behind. If you need to explain why an event, art or action was good, it’s not. It just isn’t. Strong work stands on it’s own, without explanation or instructions on how to enjoy it. Honesty is not the same as hating. If someone doesn’t like my work or events that I do, you know what I do? not a fucking thing because one opinion means nothing more to me than another grain of sand means something to the beach. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, and most of them stink. When someone tells me I’m great, I try not to pay attention. When someone tells me I’m shit, I try not to pay attention. So stop getting your panties in a bunch and buck the fuck up. You think that Tom Waits gets his feelings hurt because someone doesn’t like his music? You think that Christopher Walken responds to critiques because they didn’t like his performance in a movie? Of course not. You want to be a king, act like one. Keep your head up, stand tall and just do your thing. Otherwise provide me with enough cheese to go with your whine. For reals

My “L.O.V.E.” mural for Brewerytown Beats record store in Philly!
I asked the shop owner if I could do Benjamin Franklin doing the Robert Indiana ‘Brotherly Love’ thing and he seemed stoked about it - apparently his father makes his living as a Franklin impersonator!
