INDECLINE : Largest Illegal Graffiti Piece In the World
“INDECLINE describe themselves as an “underground movement” of “activists, musicians, graffiti writers, [and] photographers,” but you probably remember them either as the creators of the Bumfights videos, or as the guys who got arrested for allegedly stealing body parts from a hospital in Thailand.
The piece of graffiti, which reads “THIS LAND WAS OUR LAND”, was made on a disused landing strip in California’s Mojave Desert. It took six days of work, contains over 250 gallons of paint, and is over half a mile wide. This makes it about twice as wide as MTA’s piece on the LA River bed, which, before it was removed, was generally considered to be the world’s largest piece of illegal graffiti.”

INSA’s Space Animated Graffiti
UK street artist INSA is known for his animated Gif-iti wall pieces, but he has upped the scale for his latest project: it required a 14,000 square metre canvas and a pair of satellites to create the world’s largest animated gif.
Each heart alone is 24 metres across, and not being able to step back and see the work in progress meant I had to rely quite a lot on my calculations on scraps of papers. There was months of back and forth discussions, location scouting,” he adds. “The design and planning I did on my own, a logistics team were coordinating the satellite and filming, then my assistant along with a team of 20 people were on site to help get it done.

RONE by Robot Army
RONE has gone from spearheading Melbourne’s fledgling stencil art movement in the early 2000s, as a member of the Everfresh crew, to being a celebrated fixture on the international street art scene. An inveterate traveller, his distinctive female muses have followed him around the world, and can be found – in various states of decay – peering out from beneath overpasses and emblazoned on walls everywhere from New York, Paris, Tokyo and London to Christchurch, Santo Domingo and Port Villa.
These days, Rone’s work is found as often in galleries as it is on the streets. His work has been acquisitioned by the National Gallery of Australia, commissioned and shown by galleries including Stolen Space and Zero Cool in London, White Walls in San Francisco and Strychnin in Berlin, and he is represented by Opera Gallery in New York.

Dawn Of Man catches a quick snooze in the city that never sleeps.
Part of an ongoing series of site-specific video installation work, utilizing the latest in projection napping technology.
These massive nappers were projected throughout NYC over the course of several weeks, occurring unannounced, and each lasting only for a few hours. An unsuspecting audience usually emerges at each location, often sparked with intrigue, sometimes enlightenment, and always a whole lot of questions.
Projection Napping is ongoing, and will most likely be continuing to doze off from time to time, throughout NYC and beyond.
