All The Buildings in New York

Nuno sent over a link this morning to a blog titled ‘All the Buildings in New York’… Which is “An attempt to draw all the buildings in New York by James Gulliver Hancock.” Pretty stoked on the drawings and it would be amazing if he completed his task and actually drew every building. Check out the site here. (via bldgwlf) p.s. how dope of a name is Gulliver Hancock??

Art Talk With Dirt Ron

Dirt Ron has a great little video about his art on BMX Wonderland, shot by Justin Kosman. Along with being a bad ass shredder on a bike, Ron can get down with a pen and paper as well. In the video you will lean that Ron was actually born in Hawaii, how he got into art, and the names of some of the characters he draws, like Dudu Brown and Dudu Wham Shit!

I came across this via It’s Nice That and had to post it here! I for some reason have a strange fascination with cityscapes and old rustic cars, and miscellaneous piles of junk.. I cant help but to snap a pic most of the time I come across a the stuff, I cant explain it! This guy doesn’t paint piles of junk, but paints old trucks that have been exposed to harsh urban environments, old store fronts, and RV’s. his paintings are spot on, I would love to get my hands on one for sure! Not only does he paint, but he is also a very clever builder! check out the Camper cart!! sweet!

León Ferrari

While I was in New York I got to see an amazing show at MoMo called Tangled Alphabets. The show is a joint exhibit “with two of the most significant artists working in Latin America during the second half of the twentieth century” León Ferrari and Mira Schendel. I was really blown away by León Ferrari’s work and thought I’d share some of the images I dug up online since I saw the exhibit. MoMa has a great mulitmedia piece on their site about the show that definitely worth a look. What really drew me to Ferrari’s work with all his lettering and ink drawings, like the piece above. I’ve always love loose hand done typography and I think what really draws me in to his work is the relationship between the thin and thick parts of his letters.

Check out a bunch of León Ferrari’s work after the jump – READ MORE
