LATA 65 is introducing older citizens of Lisbon to graffiti. With the help of established street artists, attendees of the workshop learn the history of street art, create their own stencils/tags, and are taken out into the city to make their mark. The project aims to create a sense of solidarity and dispel the assumptions that tend to surround street art and graffiti culture. More images of the participants and their work below.

Ivana Martinovic passed me a link to her design portfolio and I’m glad she did. I especially like these embroideries that were created for a series of wine labels. Beautiful work.
is a fantastic mini-documentary, directed by Dasha Zhukova and Andinh Ha. It examines the phenomenon of “peacocking” in the fashion world due to the proliferation of street style blogs. I could actually see this being part of a feature length documentary about blogging’s affect on our culture, and our desire to document everything. Watch the film below!

Really enjoyed this profile on Brooklyn-based artist Mac Premo, by filmmaker Bas Berkhout (the editing is terrific). Take a look at some images of Mac Premo’s work and watch the video below.
Henrik Vibskov is on another level. Artist, musician, fashion and stage designer, he is an endless source of inspiration for me.
