BOGOTÁ, COLOMBIA STREET ART: CAPITALISM IS THE ENEMY by CRiSP

I found some more work from Australian artist, Crisp. This is located around Septima y Calle 52 or so…I don’t think it’s Obama necessarily that Crisp is raging against. Rather, I think it would be any U.S. President or Western leader. They all seem to represent the problems with the world: debt, war, hate, greed, pollution, and fraud. The indigenous people pictured next to the evil capitalist, are the people who essentially started this world. They’re the ones who respect the earth and approach the world with purity. The powers that be have ruined the simplicity and destroyed the opposing forces of monetary balance, peace, love, generosity, clean air, and truth. Notice two things: First, Crisp has his name with the proper ideals on the clothing of the indigenous people, while obviously Obama is cloaked in the opposite. Secondly, someone has tagged an “L,” I’m assuming for “Loser,” on Obama’s head and I’m pretty sure that wasn’t Crisp. But, I could be wrong. I’m awaiting verification.

BRUSSELS STREET ART: BANKSY MANNEKEN FRITES!

Such a cool idea ~ an unknown street artist merged iconic cultural symbols to make a cool piece of art. They used the image of Banksy’s rebel throwing flowers, Brussels’ number one representative image of its city – Manneken Pis – and frites, one of the main dishes Brussels is known for. Brilliant. In addition, I brought some friends along – NYC’s Primate by artist Joseph Meloy, The Tribal Mask by Bogota-based Aussie artist CRiSP, and WOPS! Festival promos for The Walk on The Pink Side Festival happening in Toulouse, France in October (16-18,) hosted by my favorite artist, French phenom FAFI.
