Graffiti | Shepard Fairey: Obey This Film

Shepard Fairey: Obey This Film from Brett Novak on Vimeo.

“Several months ago I was commissioned by the Halsey Institute out of Charleston, South Carolina to shoot a short film on the infamous street artist behind OBEY: Shepard Fairey. I definitely knew Shepard’s work, whether it be that repetitive face of Andre the Giant popping up at every street corner I’ve ever been on, or as the Obama Poster that definitely did more for an election than just add aesthetic to it – but I was not aware at how incredibly inspiring Shepard would turn out to be. For a new understanding of how this skateboarder turned mega famed street star turned out to be, check this film out.” – Brett Novak

Graffiti | MTN WATER BASED Studio Works X KENOR

MTN WATER BASED Studio Works X KENOR from Montana Colors on Vimeo.

KENOR is the next protagonist in this edition of MTN Water Based Studio Works.
The exhibition, ‘Les Enfants de Kupka’, which took place during the month of April in the French city, Puteaux, united a series of artists who’s work is influenced by the painter Frantisek Kupka. It was in this event where this audiovisual document was presented that takes us one step beyond working in the studio: the exhibition.
The visual spectacle of the act of painting is an important aspect in the work of KENOR although we may not be accustomed to noticing. This video gives us the opportunity to be witnesses to KENOR’s live painting, backed by the quality and comfort that MTN Water Based 300 permits.
