Filthy Ad by Filhty Advertisers!

Yes Yes Yo! Yes It's cool! and Yes We're definitely sure! the "Designers" who did this Ad for Nokia had a good laugh saying: "Na-Uto natin ang NOKIA!" "HAHAHAHA!" "Pehro Cool naman diba mga chong? diba?".

Nokia have just ask these Graff writers /Street artists to do their Ad with Integrity and Authenticity. We're sure the outcome is much colorful and alive than this graphically "Cut and Paste" technique of these High Paid lame Designers. Even the model seems Untrue to it's character. "because they're paid more than just worth a phone" ITS WHO THEY ARE!

Street Art Becomes A Masta Plan

Graffiti has had a negative connotation attached to it. It is considered as vandalism and often associated with gangs. But one group is on a mission to change the bad notions by turning doodles and scribbles into art. Thus, Pilipinas Street Plan (PSP) came to life.
In 2006, three artistic individuals namely Boyagimat, Okto and Deformindustry came together to form group Manila Street Plan. Their aim was to express their artistic side through street art. They gathered often to educate other people of their chosen endeavor and little did they know that a lot of people would be actually be interested in this kind of art form.
After gaining a lot of interest among budding artists from all over the Metro and provinces even as far as La Union through their frequent gathering of artists. Eventually, they changed "Manila" to "Pilipinas" since there was an overwhelming request from artists.
We always believe in the idea that art should not only be presented to the chosen few who have access to the institutions. That is why we are bonded with these kinds of initiatives. We see what we do in the streets as vehicle to send messages or just making the public aware. There will always be an open dialog in between, Boy Agimat explained.
Pilipinas Street Plan's art is accessible. Walls and other areas serve as their canvass and spray paints as their brushes. They also use stickers to slap on their messages and other thoughts. Their street art is very in your face where people can laugh, swoon, or gasp. It is not intimidating and no one beside you will ask what you think of it.
As of now, the group has 30 active street artists in Manila. The rest of the members are in key cities like Cebu, Tacloban, Laguna and in foreign cities as well. What's great about the group is that it is open to everybody who wants to be inspired and be an inspiration to their fellow street art enthusiast.
Their blog also serves as a humble platform wherein they feature works of different artists. It is their way of encouraging them to continue doing what they love and to keep those creative juices (over) flowing.
Nevertheless, Boy Agimat still admits that street art can be crucial depending on a given opportunity. Every session, whether planned or unplanned, allows for everyone to do their share of making art worthy.
Definitely, the PSP adheres to their group motivation, What we do is what best represents what we are and what we believe in.Their drive and creativity will surely go a long way.

Electronic art / graffiti: Wildlife by Karolina Sobecka

At night projections from moving cars are shown on the buildings downtown Sao Paulo. Each car projects a video of a wild animal. The animal's movements are programmed to correspond to the speed of the car: as the car moves, the animal runs along it speeding up and slowing down with the car, as the car stops, the animal stops also. The frame rate of the movie corresponds to the speed of the wheel rotation, picked up by a sensor. If the presence of a moving object (such as another car or pedestrian) is detected with proximity sensors, its animal "avatar" appears in the projection.
For the ZeroOne ISEA2006 I will be using one vehicle with a projection of a tiger (additional animals will appear in the projection as reflections of passing vehicles and pedestrians).
Projection disappears and flickers as it is supported by the architecture. The city itself is an active partner in creating this alter ego.
We are elevated from the everyday reality through this element of fantasy into a world with more dimensions, possibilities and perhaps beauty.
