We recently shared a preview post on our website about the incredible group show at Athen B. Gallery entitled “Spectators”. The gallery’s latest exhibition features an incredible body of painting work by Michael Reeder, Molly Bounds and Caleb Hahne. More images and video after the jump!
Our good friends over at Bombing Science recently unveiled a new video in their “Graffiti Sessions” series, this time around featuring Crane of the CA Crew. Filmed using a GoPro in a POV angle, Crane works through a piece in an abandoned building. Shot and cut by Greg Pistol.
The local community took an active part in this collective performance. A word “blame” (in Polish “wina”), stenciled on the wall, has been erased by throwing 300 eggs filled with colorful paint.
After this happening Opiemme kept painting a minimalist Taurus constellation, and the erased word “wina/blame” was replaced by both “destiny” and the Polish word “możliwości” that means “opportunities”, and fits best the location.
The mural is a part of Opiemme’s “Vortex” series, in this case inspired by Taurus constellation as well as the zodiac sign of the most famous Lodz architect Hilary Majewski (15 May 1838), who lived nearby the area. Majewski, through his architectural designs, largely shaped the historical center of Lodz.
The larger colored circle on the left is the result of the collective performance, and represents Aldebaran, an orange giant star located about 65 light years from the Sun in the zodiac constellation of Taurus. Taurus symbolizes an idea of power, re-birth, and reinassance.
