Info via the Electric Windows Site:
“24 street artists will converge in Beacon, NY on Saturday July 31st to create live artwork and have their work installed on the exterior of a 19th century factory building. Electric Windows draws its name from the former electric blanket factory at the foot of Mount Beacon that will act as the backdrop for the event. E.W. turns the idea of a gallery inside out using the large industrial windows as frames for each artists work. Usually street art is not so easily contained in a rectangle but this installation ingeniously bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor art both inverting and subverting the concept of the art gallery. Each of the 24 pieces will be approximately 8 ft x 12 ft.

Brainstorm Magazine Issue# 11 Interviews PaperMonster

January 6, 2010
Brainstorm Magazine (HERE) Issue #11 will soon be released and I had the pleasure of being featured in an artists interview for the magazine. Past artists interviewed include Blu (HERE) and Arofish (HERE) so needless to say it feels fantastic to be asked to be featured in the magazine. The interview covers topics such as my origins, what is art, and the current state of street art. Catch some excerpts from the interview below or read it for yourself at the following link::
http://www.kolahstudio.com/Underground/?p=686
Via Brainstorm Magazine:

“We are pushing art forward and inspiring the youth to do bigger and better things to continue the movement. We have a large amount of power and it is one of the most exciting parts about being an artist today.”-PaperMonster

“I have never made any paintings because I want to make anyone happy or because I need to fit into a specific category or follow rules. I make stencil art portraits of women because I want to share that beauty, strength and mystery of women. No rules or level of rejection could get me to stop what I do”-PaperMonster

I will be posting the entire issue as soon as it is released so stay posted. Enjoy

New Banksy Art Inspired by LECKOmio??

September 21, 2009
This morning I stumbled on news of a new Banksy stencil on the streets in Europe and it immediately took me back to pieces that LECKOmio (HERE) had created several months ago. It may or may not be true but I feel that Banksy’s newest creation may be a critique on LECKOmio’s pieces and use of “graffiti slogans.” You be the judge.
Catch Stefan Winterle’s Piece Below as well as Banksy street piece below.

FormatMag: New PaperMonster Interview

October 22, 2008
————————————————

FormatMag.com (Here) just released their new issue containing interviews from PaperMonster, James Jarvis, Brixton, Laurel Nakadate, CreateBuildDestroy, Rehab Chicago, Tittsworth and Jeff Chang. Paper Monster’s interview has some great questions about the current state of street and stencil art as well as what drives and motivates PaperMonster. You can check out some screen grabs from the interview below as well as portions of the interview. For the entire interview visit:

Thanks FormatMag!!

For More Visit: http://www.formatmag.com/art/paper-monster/

:::::Excerpt from the interview:::::

Format: Do you feel that having so called ’street art’ in galleries is making it more accessible or less accessible to its intended audience?
PaperMonster: This is really the “million dollar” question. As artists we are not just a product of what we create but we have risen to the level at which we are simply and only through our audience. The public can either make or break who we are. Through buying our work they fund us to progress and grow to different projects. Our audience moves our name and images across countries to a level that we could never do alone. Blek once told me that work in the street versus a gallery is as simple as having one hundred thousand people see your work in one day versus one hundred people viewing your work in a gallery. In both arenas you are touching people in different ways.

The essence of street art is decay and within a confined gallery space there is preservation. If you look at some major projects by two artist: Swoon and Os Gemeos you can see that when they were provided the space (Deitch Projects) they completely created an installation that was a world onto its own. This could never be done on the streets and it really illustrates the need for spaces where artists can grow and take their work to that next level. As artists we all crave recognition and the gallery space seems to provide a means of instant gratification as opposed to the street where in a matter of seconds your work can de destroyed. The solution, while not an exact science, is to maintain a healthy medium between the street and gallery space. If you accomplish and flourish in both, then the question of accessibility is gone. You maintain an audience as long as you keep people wondering “what is he going to do next?” and that is the ultimate goal…..longevity.

—–On Saturday September 13, Art Camp the opening of “Last Stop,” an installation of work by stencil artist, PaperMonster and photographer, Steven Sultan. The event is sponsored by CryBaby Art Gallery and will be held at Art Camp on the Asbury Park Boardwalk at 1000 Ocean Ave.

The artists joined forces to create an art installation full of vivid colors, texture, and beauty. PaperMonster’s stencil artwork combines various forms of collage to bring texture and depth to his pieces which focus on emotional snapshots and facial expressions of women. Steven Sultan’s photography captures and dives deeper into the texture which is created within street and subway advertisements as people take an active role in its urban decay. Together, they will take on an “subway station/platform” inspired theme which will bring together street art techniques to create an urban aesthetic packed with emotions of adventure, love and mystery.

The artists opened the doors to their live installation on Saturday, September 6th and invited the public and specifically, local street artists to participate in the event. The grand unveiling of the entire installation on Saturday, September 13th with music and entertainment.

Please join us in Asbury Park for this unique and remarkable event. It will begin at 9p.m. at 1000 Ocean Ave Asbury Park NJ 07712. There is a suggested donation of $10. For more photos of the artists’ work, please visit http://www.papermonster.org and http://www.myspace.com/stevensultanm
