Did Starbucks Really Rip Off Maya Hayuk's Artwork?  
by
7/13/15 Posted 7/13/15

Image via Starbucks Every artist worth their salt has their own distinctive aesthetic, and that proves especially important for graffiti and street art, where artists compete directly in the public space, not only to catch the eye of the passerby but to build an instantly recognizable identity within their community. Graffiti, after all, is all about whose tag is "up" the most in a territory. Brooklyn-based Maya Hayuk works both in the streets and the studio and her aesthetic is ubiquitous. With its pop ne...

Posted 7/3/15

Romantics looking to express their love with a padlock on Les Pont des Arts over the Canal Saint Martin in Paris are in need to find another place to do it: the famed "love locks" bridge was finally deemed a safety hazard, due to the weight of the huge quantity of locks left there by lovers. At the beginning of June local officials put an end to the tradition, removing some 45 metric tonnes of locks off the bridge. But the public reactions surrounding the municipal action have generated a wider c... [more]

The small Dutch city of Utrecht is receiving worldwide attention this weekend as its charming canals and cobbled corridors play host to Le Grand Départ: the launch of the Tour de France, which hits the road on Saturday. As with any major sporting event, the rights to host Le Grand Départ are as much rights to major commercial and tourism opportunities as they are to the Majesty of Sport.

Evol Brings East Berlin to Chelsea, with Talk of Gentrification   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
EVOL at Jonathan LeVine Gallery - 529 W. 20th June 25th - July 25th
Posted 7/1/15

Gentrification is the big bad wolf in the modern day urban party. Never formally invited, it heard of the gathering by word of mouth and will restlessly attempt to enter even if it has to blow the entire structure down. No one likes it—neither the apologetic gentrifier nor the displaced community who lack enough financial clout or power to resist or keep up with the shift. It barrels forward as if it has no memory of itself, all history lessons completely erased. After it passes, the area h... [more]

Lying somewhere on the spectrum between an amusement park and seaside resort, Coney Island attracts tourists with its boardwalk, rides, and more.

Hoping to add a cultural currency to the historic tourist spot, this summer Coney Art Walls presents more than 20 temporary walls painted by artists like Miss Van, Lady Pink, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Futura, and artist-in-residence Marie R...
