EVOL

April 12, 2010


EVOL is a Berlin based street artist that transforms banal urban surfaces, into miniature architectural surfaces through pasting. Using pasted paper, EVOL transforms electric boxes, small planters and other geometric city forms, into miniature apartment buildings and other structures. Each piece of paper is printed with a repetitive pattern of flat gray walls dotted with plain window frames. Once applied to a surface, the paper transforms the form into small building that EVOL often adorns with small characters. EVOL performs this process within different cities and has even been commissioned to do installations in galleries, where he was created entire blocks of miniature buildings.

Exit Through The Gift Shop

April 7, 2010

The film tells the incredible true story of how an eccentric French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. The film contains exclusive footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader and many of the worlds most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls and in interview. As Banksy describes it, “It’s basically the story of how one man set out to film the un—filmable. And failed.”


Rain Campaign

March 23, 2010

The RainCampaign uses an environmentally friendly method to print a message onto the pavement. When rain falls on the concrete the message is revealed for passers-by to see. But when the sun comes out and the rain dries up, the message disappears like it was never there in the first place. The message appears and disappears like magic for around eight weeks.

The campaign highlights a very real connection between advertising, the product featured in the advertisement, and the environment. The campaign was developed for Continental Tyres. The message reads “Stop Quicker With Continental Winter Tyres.” Each place the message appears with rain is near a car park, a car park ticket machine or another location with plenty of foot traffic.
