Two of the Toronto graffiti scene’s heavyweights, SKAM and RONS got down with a funky graffiti mural on a school in Toronto’s west end named “Swansea Public School”. The ironic thing, is us at BBB grew up mere blocks away from the school. It’s always so fun to see these things of youth get play. Video post-click.

Simon Silaidis is a designer, a thinker, a vision-er, a pioneer… Lately he applied his life’s love of calligraphy in the rural, urban and suburban surroundings of Asia and Europe. You will spot his work in abandoned places, in the streets and in his studio using ink and bamboo pens. His style is a mix of Western, Asian and Arabian calligraphy and his vision of a new world of calligraphy based in tranquility and symmetry dominating our surrounding is in fact the inner change he proposes to world. His twelve year successful experience as designer is only the start to what is ahead. Video and more information after the jump!
“My most recent work comes from abstract emotional states stirred up from specific self reflective moments. These moments arise as I become more aware of myself in the present and my inability to control the future. I capture these in-between moments of self doubt and inward reflection and impose them on the viewer. [...] I want the viewer to feel like they should be doing something besides just viewing. The work is begging to be activated but is frozen at its peak which accentuates the works beautiful but dark theatricality.” – Ryan Everson
