Started back in 1989, Conart was one of the first streetwear brands with a focus on hip-hop and graffiti. They recently relaunched the brand, and have started releasing many of their original designs on tees again. Conart is now available at Berlin-based retailer, Overkill.
Seven members of Los Angeles’ most infamous graffiti crew, MTA (Metro Transit Assassins) were arrested. They’re biggest work is a half-mile long MTA tag along the banks of the Los Angeles river. They are also responsible for over 1000 tags throughout Los Angeles. Among the members arrested was Smear, a well-known artist who has exhibited in galleries as well. The MTA is not your average group of snotty-nosed taggers. At the time of their arrest, one member drove a $60, 000 BMW, and another wore a diamond and ruby encrusted pendant valued at $27, 000.

Ok check it right David Ellis is much more than an artist - he’s an engineer, musician, electrician and mad scientist. All of his talents combine and the result are his masterful works of digital time-lapse imagination he calls motion painting. In this artist feature, from Upper Playground’s “The Run Up”, we get an inside view into Ellis’ mind-boggling multi-sensory pieces as well as his motion painting, Paint on Trucks in a World in Need of Love, which was recently exhibited at MoMA.
