Is Mutate cornerstone Teddy Baden the most proficient stencil artist in the world? I don’t know, I’m just asking. These new pics from his studio don’t do it justice, but he’s working until he’s dog tired here:

Teddy has been grafting and cutting and spraying and creating a new breed of dog, drawing on the Eastern European infulence of the Weimaraner, a legendary hunting beast:

Expect his new work to feature promiently in up coming Mutate related events in and around town, and if you haven’t seen his piece on Whitecross Street hurry up, it’s been there for a year and there’s more coming:

Dogs own the streets now, surely you’ve noticed?

NEW FEATURE: Street Art in Chile by Kelp

Posted in Art, South America with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2010 by mutate

Hola UK – I’m KELP from www.kelp.cl = Chile. A graffiti writer and entrepreneur who started graffiti writing in 1997 in Santiago de Chile by watching political murals and also graffiti masters doing their thing in Plaza Italia, downtown of Santiago. From Chiles capital I started to paint all over the country and then outside of Southamerica (Europe, Asia, USA) in which I painted with friends and slowly came to know many great people who were also creating and developing graffiti in many ways.

To get to the point I will write about chilean graffiti in short 150 word notes. Explain, show, describe, analyze everything around graffiti in Chile, directly from the streets with backup from the greatest graffiti writers, literature and live actions. Graffiti in Chile is getting worldwide recognition and you will find why, right here on a monthly basis.

Impending Doom???

OK, this is not the place to go for the latest Banksy blather. But it’s pointless to ignore the fact that hype is building around his new film, which appears to not be absolutely dreadful at the very least. We’ll see.

However, one biproduct seems to be the first reality star of Street Art – Mr. Brainwash. A veritable Paris Hilton, no, a Chantelle, or, if we’re lucky, Jade Goody. If this indeed proves to be the case it’s too hideous to consider. A Street Art career launched by video. Or is it? Is this the dawn of a new era? No, probably not, click on the link below to have a look at this video – the guy looks more contrived than Simon Cowell at a JLS gig in Tesco…
