The Orion – Change The City Timisoara



The Orion straluceste in galeria artistilor de street art inca de la prima expozitie oficiala de stencil in Romania. Colaborarile cu branduri notabile si proiecte originale au consolidat un proces continuu de transformare, de evolutie a perspectivei asupra creatiei in street art. The Orion se redescopera pe parcurs, in quest-ul sau de explorare a limitelor galaxiei street art.

REVOK and POSE and the Transformation of The Houston Wall


It took 80 hours and seven humid, sticky days and nights to complete, longer than it took God to make Heaven and Earth, according to scriptures.

But the powerful transformation of the famed Houston street wall that took place last week had as profound an effect on many New York fans of street art and Graffiti as the melting of the North and South poles. And that was probably intentional.

Of the many references are three call outs to their recently and painfully departed MSK brother Nekst, who a handful of crew members had joined together to eulogize on smaller walls in Brooklyn the previous weekend. Among the other names included are Ayer, Vizie, Cheech Wizard, Omenz, Sace, Case 2, Semz, Tie One, Rammellzee, and “All You See is Crime in the City” –- a phrase associated with a famous train car work by Skeme from the 1980s documentary “Style Wars”. The guys even did shout outs to their kids.

Aside from the art category labels and the odes to community, both Revok and Pose are doubled up on this wall because of their common regard for sampling – that is, the combining of a variety of disparate elements and re-contextualizing them. As a basis for their fine art show that just opened at Jonathan Levine Gallery while they were in the city, the two have found that they both have a fairly active studio practice that they can collaborate on also.

Dinosaucers



2012 is the end of the world. As I post this work, there are 68 more days till the end of the world. Supposedly, by some “scientists”.
My thoughts are somehow different. In the future, what if on a life supporting Mars, history will repeat itself. Dinosaurs become extinct.
Will an asteroid or our highly developed planet will do that? Who knows?
The truth is out there.

Typopassage TypeSpace 2012


Typopassage Timisoara is a micro museum located in a public space, dedicated to graphic design and the art of shaping letters. It’s the first international extension of Typopassage Vienna initiated by the genius Ovidiu Hrin and Bauer Konzept & design.

In 2011, TPTM launched the Typ’O'wall – a 28 sq. meters graffiti covering the entire wall of the passage, with concept of the artwork related to typography. Thus, last year’s subject “TypeFace”, was brought to life thanks to my friend “Jones”.

Now, in 2012, I was the lucky one.
Commissioned to rethink and paint the wall by the nature of it’s subject, “TypeSpace”, I’ve tried to do my best.
Hard work. It was all about putting my balls at work.

Thanks for all the wise words & this opportunity Ovidiu Hrin and all Synopsis Media staff, Stefan Lucut, Caius Mersa, D’Arc, Ovidiu Carabet, U-Man and all the ones that appreciated my work and didn’t tried to destroy it.

Nights Off Brasov +



Daca va aduceti aminte postam cu ceva timp in urma o mica interventie a artistului The Orion in orasul Brasov, de unde a rezultat Nights off Brasov.
Acum The Orion revine cu un nou clip Nights Off Brasov + (chiar daca poarta aproape acelasi nume, este o versiune mult mai imbunatatita), cu toata activitatea sa din Brasov, comprimata in aproape 3 minute de hardcore-aleala stradala!
Si pentru mai multe detalii si poze, va invitam pe pagina lui, clic AICI.
Check it out!

Nights off in Brasov

Aproape ca a trecut un an de la seria de afise “Pierdut”, unele din ele rezistand expresiilor romanului, iar acum, in plina campanie electorala mi-am spus sa revin cu noi serii, afisandu-le pe sediile partidelor sau facand concurenta afiselor electorale.

Cateva dintre ele au fost pur si simplu luate de prin oras, modificate pe plac si reafisate.

Nopti libere, ploioase, pozitive in Brasov. In curand.

Dublin Street Art (The Orion’s Review)


Peretii din ziua de azi sunt mai plini ca niciodata cu street art.
Daca vrei sa fii bagat in seama, trebuie sa iti folosesti imaginatia. Vechea metoda de a taga cat mai mult zona respectiva, moare. Fiecare individ care practica forma asta de arta, observa ca trecatorilor le place frumosul. Asa ca, intr-un tarziu, vor incerca cu siguranta actuala tendinta.

Cand esti strain intr-un oras nou, exista un sentiment placut, asta pana te acomodezi.
La fel a fost si in Irlanda cand lipeam stickere. Aveam impresia ca imi sunt ciudate, ca nu se potrivesc cu peisajul, traditionalul lor.

Da, sunt mai prietenosi, mult mai.
Chiar daca de multe ori prezinta un avantaj, de altfel am cunoscut un cuplu de stencil making, Kathrina Rupit (Mexic) si Iljin Prj (Polonia), i-am cunoscut pe strada, intamplator; impreuna lucreaza in atelierul din Dublin, a faimosului C215, pe care l-au intalnit in acelasi loc unde acum 2 saptamani i-am cunoscut; dar uneori poate actiona impotriva ta.

Cert e ca in Romania exista o frica si indiferenta, la trecatori. Cateodata treaba asta iti poate constitui un avantaj, atunci cand dai ceva rapid, sau o dezamagire, cand iti doresti sa afli parerile altora.

Sticker-ul are o parte lipicioasa si una ce iti afiseaza ideile.
Data viitoare gandeste-te bine pe care vrei sa o folosesti.
