Iro is an old friend of mine whose work still attaches me any time I visit her site. Unfortunately I didn’t see any updates of her genious (and sometimes melancholic) illustrations the last 2 years. 

I would like to hear news from you, girl!

Boxi

Born 1974 in Kent, England.
He completed his studies at the London St. Martins school of art with a BA Fine Arts degree in painting in 1996.
Boxi has lived and worked in Berlin, Germany since 2000.

Boxi creates hand cut multi layered life size stencils that he exhibits in galleries and on street walls. It is often their placement within the installation or urban landscape that completes and defines their action, enabling the work to interact with the space. It is within this collaboration that the material boundaries of the work are dissolved, affecting the perception of the image.

Wangechi Mutu (b.1972, Nairobi, Kenya) is an artist who lives and works in New York. She moved to New York in the 1990s to study anthropology & fine arts.

The drawings couple collaged parts of idealized women clipped from fashion magazines with drawn and ink-soaked passages. They are rooted in the history of Kenyan traditional story telling and postcolonial horror stories.

Stelios Faitakis

March 17, 2009

1207946399_limaml_98f05f94283e47bfbf35761deed1616e

Born in Athens, his parents both worked in a gold-chain factory (perhaps the source of a life-long obsession with the precious metal?). After high school, he managed to fall into art school after a friend entered one of his drawings into a school contest without his permission. A somewhat withdrawn child, Faitakis found the idea of studying art as thrilling as his parents found it unwise. He did win the battle, however, and in 1996 entered the School of Fine Arts in Salonica. He later transferred to the School of Fine Arts in Athens, from which he graduated in 2003.

A quick look at Faitakis’ work suggests an obsession with Japanese woodblocks or Byzantine frescos, but certainly not with graffiti, the ultimate art of the unrefined, simplistic, and hurried for fear of the cops. But in fact, he got his start in the art world on the streets of Athens, the ancient but notoriously ugly town whose walls, according to Faitakis, “literally beg to be painted.”
