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:

Via World Graffiti:
——

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.

———–

Via World-Graffiti (HERE)
————

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.

“There’s a fine line between what’s an eyesore and what’s really beautiful,” says PaperMonster. “There’s a line between writing on the street, with no purpose versus a very well thought-out message that people can connect with.”

“There’s a lot of work that goes into each stencil and each painting,” says PaperMonster, who notes that many compositions require more than a dozen different stencils and aerosol colors. “It deserves to have a proper space so people can observe it and spend time with it. In the street, the experience is very ephemeral.”

July/August PaperMonster’s Favorite Things 2010

August 9, 2010
Things have been so busy that I completely forgot to do my favorite things post for July so this month you get two whole months of favorite things for July and August. Check out all the madness below with tons of videos to watch.
First up we have Metroid: Other M for the Wii which releases this month and is one of the most anticipated games for the Wii this year. Metroid: Other M has a complete new style different than any other Metroid game in the past mixing sidescrolling and first person perspectives with new quick time events. To see what I mean check out the video below:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Igjyh18ebw
Now this blew my mind. Nerf has taken things to a whole new level with their guns!! The new Nerf Stampede which sells for $50+ is a fully automatic firing machine. The Nerf guns that we used to have to pull to shoot will soon be a thing of the past. Check out the entire Nerf http://www.hasbro.com/nerf/en_US/ and buy your own Stampede in less than 30 days!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E81Jm_F6hIE
New sniper rifle from Nerf!! Insane!!
Jackass is back with a whole new movie coming to theather in October and guess in what dimension you can see it in…. 3D!!! You have to catch the entire preview below.
The ending is AMAZING:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFK6Ih8KOis
Now this is where things ger crazy. Microsoft has revealed a ton of new products/games at E3 this year and you will not believe what you can do with their latest addition the Kinect.
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/kinect
This is where games are going and what your kids will be playing very soon without a controller and a brand new way you will look at fitness games. YOU HAVE TO SEE THESE VIDEOS!!

Next we have my dream vision of an underground Batman style parking garage. Every home should come with one. Check more of this amazing concept at:
http://www.fubiz.net/2010/07/16/underground-parking-system/

OHHH YEAHH!! Here we see Terrafugia which is one step closer to a flying car. This new car concept really flys and is awaiting approval and further development. You can check out two great videos below of just what to expect from Terrafugia below:

Animated concept video

More mobile games?? YES! Archetype is the latest app for the Ipod Touch and Iphone that in my opinion is one of the best first person shooter games I have ever seen on any mobile device whether phone or mobile gaming system. This app only cost $2.99 and I can’t stop playing it!!! Catch me in a match under PaperMonster!! Pick your copy at your Ipod Touch or Iphone App Store!! Check out a gameplay video below:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTjizv8Ilf8

When I first saw this I had no clue what it was. It is called Rex Bionics System and it is a system that allows people bound to a wheel chair for whatever reason to be able to take their first foot steps with the aid of this exoskeleton system that allows you to stand and move upright. Check out the wonderful video showing the Rex Bionics System in action. This is a wonderful move forward in science!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGw5DYngHTo
Ren showed this to me last week and it is a new concept being push forward by China to create these massive buses that ride on rails similar to a subway train but cars can drive right through underneath each bus without any problem. Very cool concept and you can check out more of what China is planning next:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv8_W2PA0rQ
Lastly I leave you with two of my favorite videos this month. Hope you enjoy. Check them out below:

Juxtapoz Stencil Issue Initiative Please Re-Post!!

July 12, 2010
Welcome to my latest goal!!
I would LOVE to see Juxtapoz Magazine create a special Stencil Art Issue or Book!!
http://juxtapoz.com/
As PaperMonster I want nothing more than to continue to promote the use of stencils whether you are a stencil artists or just someone who wants to use stencils as tool in your paintings or home. I feel that there is no better time than today to document how artists all over the world are using stencils to share their messages or just create something beautiful. That is what has brought me to create this new goal to encourage Juxtapoz Magazine to create a Special Stencil Art Issue. In the past Juxtapoz has created special issues highlighting New York Graffiti, Street Art, and several other themes but never a Stencil Art Issue.
With your help hopefully we can make this a reality!!!
HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO!!

Hello Juxtapoz Magazine
I am writing because I support PaperMonster’s initiative to work towards a special Juxtapoz Magazine Stencil Art/Graffiti issue or book concept similar to previous special issues/books that you have released on graffiti, street art issues, dark arts, and tattoo books. There is no better time than now to highlight the power and beauty that the stencil art movement has today. A Stencil Art/Graffiti Issue or Book Concept is a wonderful step forward for Juxtapoz Magazine as one of the leaders of art world. I am interested in this idea and hope that it is something we can see in the near future. Thank you for your time.

Coverage of “PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy” via SensesLost, Brooklyn Street Art, and Unurth

July 9, 2010

Below are some wonderful links to Senses Lost , Brooklyn Street Art, and Unurth which conducted some wonderful coverage of “PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy.” You can check out the exclusive SensesLost(HERE) x PaperMonster Interview covering everything leading up to the solo show. Check out more news and info on all of the sites below.

Via SensesLost:

What do you want people to take away from your show?

Overall I want people to take away two things. The first is this sense of chaos as to what to start with first; the collage; the portraits; the textures, and just dive deep into each piece. This is the perfect time to just spend hours exploring all of the pieces together and there are some real surprises in this show. The second thing I want people to take away is a sense of inspiration. At the end of the day that is what all artists are trying to do; to inspire ordinary people to express themselves in unique and artistic ways…..For More Visit (HERE)
