This summer Case Maclaim and Does teamed up to create a 6.600 m² painting in Frankfurt. Supported by a team of carefully selected assistants, they spent six weeks underground to paint the complete inside of Ostendstraße metro station. More info, images and videos after the jump!
In a peculiar meeting of friendship and styles, our all chrome aficionado, KEMS, welcomed a visit from Parisian good-guy GOMER in April. He arrived as Boston’s winter was going the way of the groundhog, the locals hoping it wouldn’t see its shadow and curse them with another six weeks of winter. Rather than stay to find out, the duo loaded up an unassuming rently with Lak, and clocked miles on the dash for an extended week long USA-only spraycation. After being turned away from the Canadian border, KEMS and GOMER travelled 2000 miles, touching up abandos and local spots in random towns through-out New England and New York. Nine days, a helluvalotta Lak and good times. Enjoy.

His work features his signature Poulet (or Chicken), interacting with his surroundings in often derelict and abandoned spaces. Check out some images and a video of some new work out in the streets.
The skincancer awareness foundation Spot the Dot organized the very first “Art Against Skincancer” event together with Vienna based Design Agency Traktor on September 8. Besides hosting a group exhibition of fine art prints made for their cause they invited the world famous street artist Nychos to do a live painting inspired by the theme skincancer. He showed approx 150 visitors live and over 400k viewers via live video broadcasts how he makes such a facemelting mural.

Spot the Dot is a non-profit foundation to raise awareness of melanoma and other types of skincancer. Each year millions of people globally are diagnosed with several types of skin cancer. Melanoma is for example the leading cause of cancer death in young women ages 25-30 and the second leading cause of cancer death in women ages 30-35 (Source: Melanoma Research Foundation). When prevention fails, catching skin cancer early is crucial and highly treatable. Taking note of changes on your skin is key – Make sure you spot the dot!
