The Rainbow Road

Mon, 04/11/2016 - 15:46

“Some colours for all the travellers: for joy and hope, for love and unity. More than a thousand tiles, all different but all the same“.

Mademoiselle Maurice is an established street artist who works mainly with origami and tiles, creating colourful spaces of abstractions in cities all around the world.

Her new mural, titled Rainbow Road covers platform 1 of the rail station in Maryland, London. It is composed with more than a thousand tiles, all hand painted with a rainbow colour palette.

The motif for the mural was inspired by Beckett’s play “Waiting for Godot”, where two people wait endlessly in a station for someone who never arrives. The piece questions the importance – or unimportance – of time. Is time spent waiting meaningless?

With Rainbow Road Maurice wants to look at the tiles composing the mural as train passengers and dedicate her wall to them.

Slogan Art

Tue, 02/09/2016 - 15:15

Irish writer and filmmaker Rockatansky grabs us with his slogan art, creating formal epigrams, slogans and commentary. His work (and writing) is about rebirth in one form or another.

In his own words:

"BUKOWSKI SPILLED HIS GUTS ON THE STREET FOR YOU.  BRING A SPOON ASSHOLE": My girlfriend hates this slogan, sees it as negative ... "Why are you calling people assholes?"  I don't see it as negative; I think it's funny and honest.  Really enjoy reading Bukowski.  He was no saint and I'm not glorifying his destructive and abusive ways.  Bukowski was in fact a writer who shared with us what he saw as beautiful and profound, but by and large, he did it by attacking what he hated; he did it that way to humour himself when life was humourless, to survive a horrific childhood, to survive alcoholism.  What remained, he loved.  If you disagree, read his poem "Nirvana" or listen to Tom Wait's spoken word version on his album, "Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards".  The slogan is saying: find the courage to admit just how ugly you get and work with it.  And until you see some gold, keep fighting, survive.

 

"WAITING FOR A MURDER": In an effort to pretty up their bus stops, the city put up all these ugly and meaningless plastic images of flowers.  I decided to give them some meaning.  It's about the street population: the insane, the dangerous, the addicted, the impoverished, and how amongst the gentrified streets of my neighborhood, in the cracks so to speak, there are violent attacks on a regular basis, violence which often goes unreported, let alone investigated.  So I saw this location as somewhere where a violent crime is just waiting to happen and that thought changed my relationship with my surroundings.

 

"FLOATING": Because we are, actually floating through time and space, ever so briefly; that's the ultimate trip, sober.  And what do I spend most of my time doing?  Managing fear, anxiety, anger, and managing it badly.  It's insane.  Now maybe that's not particularly inspired or interesting, an obvious thought to most, but I'm an alcoholic and addict in recovery; for people like me, it's not obvious and I must remind myself daily, that I'm more than the sum of my parts.
