An artist with strong graffiti roots, Sander van Heukelom has once again come up with something unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. You may recall his “Fat Cap” (spray can cap) chairs, or his graffiti sculpture. Now he shows us his new project, “Fontform” as yet another dope addition to his unique portfolio.
Just a warning, these pics might be considered a little risque by some. I’m purely showing off the true beauty of these pics….. the graffiti, right. So, anyways, i’m not sure on the point behind this besides gettin’ some good lookin’ girls and drawin’ some sweet graffiti on them. More pics after the jump.
Graffiti artist Benny Diar has been paralyzed from the neck down for 2 years. His passion for art remains as he continues to create by putting a paintbrush in his mouth and creating works far better than anything I could ever hope to create with my hands. Our good friends over at CLOUT are helping this admirable dude out as best they can by organizing fundraisers through events and product sales. Their most recent effort brings to us some dope T-shirts; the proceeds generated from the sales of these tees will go directly to Benny to help cover his extensive living costs. Please read Benny’s letter to you and purchase one of the shirts here.
Developed by Aisa Logerot, this prototype (called Halo) is used for light writing, but allows graffiti artists to stay true to their aerosol style. You can adjust the brightness of the light, as well as, change the caps for different colors. Now check out the coolest part: when it runs out of battery, you recharge the thing by shaking it. Awwwesome. How perfect is this for someone like me who is a totally wannabe badass graffiti artist? I would say, though, the only drawback to this product is that most good light writing utilizes several different types of lights, including sticks, strobes, and different size bulbs. This would disallow for that, and restrict the artist to more of a pen-like utensil. Check out Aissa Logerot for more details.
This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve shown love to Lichtfaktor, but I just came across a new series of theirs: Abstract. I think it contains some of their best work, as it eliminates all background setting and external light, and focuses solely on the graffiti itself. Many many (15) great pictures after the click.
You really need to check out this dude’s website. It’s one of the most creative portfolios I have seen in a while. He also has a streetwear clothing line you can find at his site. If you like his work, you can get some large renders of it at his DeviantArt profile for your desktop.
The K-60 is a superb writing utensil that is now shipping in 3 new metallic colors. Krink’s website is currently under development, so I’m not positive when you’ll be able to grab these up easily. But, of course, you can pick up a variety of other K-60 colors from various graffiti distributors like bombingscience. [KR]
I didn’t even think these were real sculptures at first, but if you check out the detail shots after the jump, you will see that they are legit wood sculptures. So absolutely amazingly dope. The name “Sander van Heukelom” may ring a bell, and if it does, that means you’re an avid Sneakhyper, because he was just featured a few days ago as the designer of the Spray Can Cap Chairs. His portfolio is quite extensive and is chalk full of the dopeness, as you would expect from any featured artist you find on SNEAKHYPE. You gotta check out the other stuff:
