Deconstruction by Mike Hewson
"A large-scale digital print installation on the elevated walkway spanning between the active Ballantyne’s building and the red-zone The Crossing building. When standing at a particular vantage point on Colombo St the artwork visually deletes the walkway, while from other locations the viewer can distort their interpretation of the work as they move around the structure. The sky covering the structure references changing aesthetic of the CBD as the last of the damaged buildings are removed. The block of blue also acts a visual disconnect between the humming operations of the ReStart/Ballantyne’s precinct and the silence of the red-zone awaiting rejuvenation.”
URBAN STREET ART: Super-Sized Characters invade the Streets of São Paulo!
São Paulo, Brazil’s largest and most dynamic city, has long been famous for its innovative modern art and its gridlocked roads (among other things). Now street artist TEC, an Argentinian transplant, has been busily decorating the city’s asphalt roadways with lively figures. TEC emblazons the streets at night, equipped with a paint roller, creating enormous creatures that appear to be moving through the urban jungle of this mega-city. Sometimes compared to the Nazca Lines of Peru, these super-sized figures also are best appreciated from above. TEC’s style of urban street art evolved out of his interest in logos and comic-book characters: as he was more interested in colorful characters than in calligraphy and letter based graffiti, he developed his own grand style on the streetscapes. I love how it humanizes the sprawling roadways of this mega-city, don’t you? You can check out more of his work here.
