This is a short video I shot documenting a recent mural painted in Los Angeles by El Mac. It’s his interpretation of Mictecacihuatl, or la Señora de La Muerte. The mural was sponsored by FX in promotion of their new series The Bridge. The show is set in El Paso/Juarez and deals with some of the border issues and violence there, which is important to El Mac.
Here’s a teaser trailer for Godzilla which hit’s theaters May 16th 2014.

Back in July, Kidult kicked off the “EXSTINCTOR” project where the art world’s vigilante hid 10 individually numbered sculptures around the globe as a way to encourage curiosity within society’s encapsulating walls. With the seventh piece appearing in London this past week, the French artist previews a short video titled “No Gallery, No Master.” On its official website, we’re told “The ‘Exstinctor’ propaganda project only aims at destroying the notion of commodity. Just like graffiti, my work is public, and not private. NoGalleryNoMaster was created so that we can choose and select how my work is sold and distributed, in accordance with very specific criteria.” Below that description Kidult asks that you contact him with certain information like your name and profession. Though he doesn’t mention as to why, he may be alluding to the fact that his followers will aid him in deciding how and where his work will be sold. – Hypebeast
LURK HARD recently released their 2013 Winter look book which consists of tee’s socks and some headwear. The look book begins with an animated cartoon by Judd Hertzler.
With well over five million views and counting, it’s safe to say that you’ve seen the latest video from SOFLES – ‘LIMITLESS’. Shot and cut by the incredible Selina Miles with the help of TREAS, QUENCH and FINTAN MAGEE they’ve set the bar at an almost unreachable height – which makes for incredible viewing. If you’ve been living under a rock or experiencing technical difficulties with your internet, it’s best you view it now and get on top of the rock.
Any great video release should be coupled with a fitting launch party. To celebrate the mammoth task of putting this thing together, SOFLES held an exhibition at Jugglers Art Space in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley. A crowd of eager heads gathered to see some of his recent work (along with ‘Limitless’ co-star @drapl who was exhibiting upstairs) and of course to lay eyes on ‘LIMITLESS’ before the masses. – IRONLAK
A$AP Mob brings back ’90s nostalgia with the Nas-inspired record and video for “Trillmatic” featuring A$AP Nast and Method Man. The hip-hop crew including A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg all make appearances in the accompanying clip, which was shot at Castle Hill Houses in the Bronx.
“The ’90s was the best era for hip-hop, hands down,” said Rocky during his appearance on “106 & Park.” “That’s what we’re just trying to bring back.”
The song will appear on A$AP Mob’s upcoming studio album, due March 4. – RAP UP
