Choke Urban Creation: Urban Art Umbrellas

December 21, 2011

PaperMonster (USA) , A1one (Tehran), and Cabiao (Buenos Aires) have collaborated with Choke Urban Creation (Germany) on a set of artist designed umbrellas. Each umbrella comes in an artist designed box and features a one button auto-open/close feature with an aluminum shaft and fiberglass ribs. These umbrellas are unlike anything you will see outdoors and truly make a powerful and beautiful statement.

Kanye West “Runaway” Film

October 24, 2010
There are few people who truly “give” in the world. Kanye West (HERE) is one of those few. He has been releasing a new music track every week for free and what drove me to do my post was the amazing film he put together titled “Runaway.” It is unlike anything you have seen and I love to see someone push himself and break away from what you would expect. You can catch the entire 30min film for free over at: http://kanyewest.com
or
click on the image below.
Also, make sure to download all of the tracks he has been releasing for free on the site while you are there:

WG – Where do you draw influence from?

PM – I don’t directly draw my influence from one source. I think as an artist you have to create what you want. There are pieces that I make that you will never see because I don’t think they say anything about me growing as an artists. The whole goal is to grow and push your own self yet at the same time you need to know what is going on around you and learn from people around you.

If you don’t feed off the creative vibe around you and use it in a productive way then you will never run out of ideas. REPETITION KILLS. I can NOT stand people who repeat the same image over and over and over. Always the same, no evolution, no new ideas!!! I HATE IT. People get really tired of that and it is what is killing the urban art and gallery scene. It is just bad news overall.

You see more and more galleries just use the same artists who do the same exact thing and the entire scene just needs new life. The same goes for magazines. Over and over you see the same artists and that prevents any new talent from gaining exposure and recognition that they rightfully deserve. It is super sad and one of the main reasons people are not buying magazines. Why,when I can see something new every day online since you have not for the past 2 years.

For me I see it this way; If I wanted to have a quick way out of course I could just repeat a stencil 100 times but what does that say about me and about the time I put into what I do and consider a profession.

WG – Did you always combine the stencils with the collage stuff or did it develop over time?

PM – It was a major evolution process from the very beginning. The collage work has just become this huge chaotic mess of newspaper, textured paper, comics, money, paper from Tibet, and a bunch of other elements that I collage together.

In each painting I always put something that you can connect with immediate, whether it is you see Spiderman, Ninja Turtles, Ren and Stimpy, Robocop, etc. Once I create that connection then I develop a whole story within the painting so one you are sucked in to the painting you can explore on your own.

The goal now is to take that experience and develop it to something that is stronger and allows the audience to go through more emotions.
