Five infamously celebrated street artists converged on Lincoln Blvd. (btwn. Washington and Venice) this past few days near Venice to hit a large wall installation. Who ? Buff Monster, D*Face, Flying Fortress, The London Police and Shepard Fairey. Sweet lineup. This looks great in person and pretty sweet in the pics too. It's really clean work on a large scale. Click through for all the pics your eyes can handle.

Gary Baseman and Toby invade Italy
What happens when Two Americans hit Italy? Straight from the man himself, Gary Baseman sent over these photos of him working on a huge canvas at an Action Painting event at Luisa via Roma in Florence. But I have to say the star of this trip seems to be Toby. Sorry Gary...Check out what happens when Toby takes in the sights of Florence.

Yok and Draawer's Exhibition at The Asylum
Contemporary artists Yok and Draawer have gathered their talents together to bring you a collaborative exhibition. Heed Weed is to open on January 25th at The Asylum in Singapore and will run through until February 9th. Raised on beer and BBQs, Yok, an art school graduate was introduced to street art while on a trip to Europe and was inspired to start doing his own. Yok's characters are loosely based on gargoyles, in medieval times architects would place gargoyles on buildings to ward off evil spirits. Borrowing from this thought Yok places his handmade paper/painted gargoyles on city walls. He gets a kick out of seeing people looking up at his work puzzled. Yok has been involved in many exhibitions around the world including Singapore and held a few solo shows in Australia.
Draawer shares his hope, inspirations, nocturnal outburst, early morning excursions and attempts to challenge authorities through his Happy Chin® character, which has been painted, drawn, printed, sprayed and even sewn in various canvas, paper, wall and some unmentionables as seen in several group shows like “I pity the dolls” in New York, Stickpop show in Mexico, Sketches in Australia, 44boards in Ohio, LMAC’s zombies world tour and most recently, Curious Eidolon's Art + Heart Project in Melbourne, IDN Designedge 05 and Asylum's The Dinner Party in Singapore; his hometown.
Here are pics of some of Yok and Draawer's work. I bet whatever the artists may be painting, their characters manage to slowly sneak up on the unsuspecting audience creating quite a stir!! Here is your chance to get up close and personal with them at The Asylum.

Dr. Bao Pham's Smashed Cans
Dr. Bao Pham, a dentist by profession but truly an artist by passion has turned up his newest art pieces, "Smashed Can Art". Yap, between patients, Bao smashed cans and turn them into pieces of colorful eye candy. With a whimsical imagination, what would have been trash is transformed into scenery art pieces. I particularly like the dioramas in which Bao has creatively used the well blended smashed cans to compose the serene landscapes. Along with "recycling" cans, Bao had also mastered "recycling" old toys. Just take a look at what he did to the 1988 Fisher Price toy "Ernie". The head even rotates!! If you like what you see, drop Bao a line!!
