My interview at Tallgrass film fest.
Here is the first trailer for our Dwelling Project. We are looking for artists from around the world who want to build buildings at the scale of 5 stories to one cereal box and recycled elements. Then you ship it to Sydney when we get an address. You will not get it back. You will not get paid. And it might be destroyed as part of the project. If you do this its for the love of creating. We are making a film about the project so your work may live on. First let us see your work and we will give you more info. Please re-post or send this to artists you think want to take part.
We need your help on our next art project. Please go to our page on Iniegogo and donate. You can get our zines, books and films and more.
Over the past year my team and I have been looking to do a project in Australia. I am excited to announce that we have touched base with local artists in Sydney who are thrilled to work with us. However, as with any event in another country, there are costs involved. I need your help getting there in order to fulfill this project and to help provide spaces for young artists to do the same!
This will be the fourth overseas art project and film the Antagonists have created in the last 8 years. From New York, Germany, Portugal, and Ecuador continue to work with and develop the artists we encountered on past projects. We couldn’t have made those trips possible without the help from our supporters via Kickstarter campaigns . Each project resulted in a feature documentary film that continues to help the artists involved. We try to provide venues for artists, mentoring, job placement, and exposure, and we hope—with your help—we can do it again. We have everything ready for this event, but we need your help in covering travel, accommodations, and final production costs to build the exhibition and workshops. With your support, we will expand our reach and discover new art and artists.
Hanksy! One of my top graffiti artists is debuting a web series on street art October 1.
“There’s a bunch of art getting painted on walls between New York City and LA,” Hanksy noted in a statement. “And it’s my opinion that if a knucklehead artist like myself is randomly given some weird pseudo-serious spotlight, they use it for good not evil. Surplus Candy is a filmed continuation of the illegal show I held earlier this year in the East Village.”

Result: A documentary on Indian Truck Art
Horn Please is a documentary that encapsulates various aspects of an age-old folk art form of India — the Truck Art, an art form that makes journeys through the dusty highways of India, incredible in more ways than one. With a kaleidoscope of bright paints, motifs, typography and some unique couplets, these Indian trucks take you on a rather colourful journey of diverse cultures and beliefs of the country. The designs painted on the trucks do not merely stand for aesthetic purposes, but they also attempt to depict religious, sentimental, and emotional viewpoints of the people related to the truck industry.
This documentary focuses on the origin of truck art and its evolution since then. And also how it influences not just the world of art, but also the lives of its artists and the truckers who interact with it on a daily basis. Largely, it investigates on whether the once-accepted type of art as a unique form of expression, will survive the test of time in this era of capitalism.
