Legendary graffiti artist RISK was recently getting extremely busy in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Painting loads of graffiti, doing a large-scale mural and preparing for a show. Peep the science after the jump.
As you probably have noticed, we are dedicating all of our Writing Wednesdays to Dave Dean‘s new album “Summer Traps”. For this week’s franchise post, we have his newest release (along with the lyrics) entitled “Like Sleep”. Definitely one of our favourites which we have heard so far.
“Since 2009 I have been compiling a series of sculptural paintings that take their cue from geology textbook illustrations of cut-aways of terrain. These pieces resemble scaled-down models of the events and features of the earth, but more literally, they are core samples of the act of painting, promoting innovation in the timeworn study of process and materials.” – Laura Moriarty

One of our main men, Luke McCutcheon, just finished wrapping up the new video “Pretty Boy” for the Montreal-based indie band, Young Galaxy. Young Galaxy has been really creating a lot of buzz with their new album “Ultramarine” and we’re sure if you haven’t heard it already, you’ll be jamming out to it all day.
We here at Bizarre Beyond Belief had a chance to work (again) with the fantastic band Azores from Toronto. We got to follow them around to shoot a video for their hard-hitting song “Gold Pens” from their “Live From Hoboken” album. This album is also for sale on their bandcamp page with all proceeds being donated to hurricane Sandy relief. We hope you enjoy the video and support an amazing cause.
I know we say this often but we’ve known CRSP Photo since beyond we can remember. He has shot everyone one who comes into town from Obi Trice to Bad Religion. He also did some work for us in the last issue in regards to the GWAR spread. Check out his Facebook page for more frequent updates.
