In The Headlines

What a ridiculous weekend. Between Whitney's timely arrival, visiting Os Gêmeos for two-hour time blocks, waving to Martha Cooper, meeting some fellow street art junkies (hi, Bob and Mike!) and saying hi to Michael De Feo and Ellis G., I feel like my head is going to explode. So much awesome activity in one weekend! I'll make sure to upload photos and some (albeit crappy) video of the twins painting tomorrow. Right now, get caught up on what's going on in the street art world.
Here’s some new stuff from Remi Rough; these are from his “Demise” series. He’ll take part in Urban Angel’s “The Show Must Go On” opening on July 16th.
