Philly’s Litter Critters

A few years ago, Philly was the premier city to roll out 500 high-tech Big Belly trash compactors. Today, these treasured rubbish receptacles have been affectionately transformed into works of art known as “litter critters” within the South Street district between 2nd and 10th street.

The wonderfully inspiring Mural Arts Program is behind the initiative as part of their Big Picture Educational program, which was created to encourage social responsibility in youth ages 10-14. The students in Big Picture produced the drawings and Ben Woodward & Tom Lessner of Space 1026 helped to design as wraps.

¡Muchísimas Gracias a Chris Gatto!

The Business Card With Some Balls

One wonders if the use of these understated, socially relevant, ass-whooping cards could actually be the first step eradicating atrocious parking habits. From personal observation, these little billets would sell like hot cakes in the SF Bay Area where it would seem as though parking lines were drawn with invisible paint…

Big Up!

Rolling Through The Bay

Scott Weaver’s Rolling through the Bay from Learning Studio on Vimeo.

Artists do the darndest things. 35 years in the making, and artist Scott Weaver may still consider his elaborate kinetic structure of famous San Francisco landmarks a work in progress. More than 100,000 toothpicks were used in constructing this unusual work of art, aptly titled (as you may have guessed) “Rolling Through the Bay”.

Complex Timeline of Graffiti Art

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Alfred Barr’s diagram on Cubism and Abstract Art, Daniel Feral revised the layout to illustrate the history and many influences of street art and graffiti.

This diagram was produced as part of PANTHEON‘s exhibition: an accumulation of 33 artists brought together to interpret and visually represent the journey of street art and New York City’s central role in advancing the art form to other geographies around the globe.

Logos Stripped Down

You Took My Name is yet another interesting logo project we had the pleasure of coming across as of late.

In the artists’ words:

“We’re working on a series of paintings that strip famous logos back to their basic graphic forms. Creating pieces that we think are artworks in their own right.”

It’s unclear as to whether repurposed logos constitute “artworks in their own right”, but regardless, this study of highly recognizable brands is worth a view. For the entire series, check this.

Eastern Eggs for the Holiday

In an effort to assist Japan in their momentous healing and rebuilding efforts, The British Red Cross, in combination with the Egg-Bot and a select group of artists offer the Eastern Egg. Not only do all proceeds go towards the BRC’s Japan Tsunami Appeal, but donors may get the chance to watch their egg being printed (by the Egg-Bot itself) via webcam.

Respect to IIHIH
