NEW FEATURE – direct from South America!

Posted in one foot in the grove, South America, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 16, 2010 by jack lomax

The Street Art scene in South America is astounding. Everyone is talking about Brazillian Street Art with good reason – but what about the thriving Chilean scene and the developing styles of Argentina and Paraguay? At One Foot in the Grove we were very happy to host this work by Wolf and PXL from Chile…

…and we’ve got links to South America so watch this space for reports on the distinct and amazing styles happening over there. For now, check this video from Denotes hip hop & graffiti crew, of Asunción, Paraguay. Joma & Kast of Denotes are MCs and graffiti writers. In the background, there are typographic throw ups by them, and by Above, who came through Asunción.  Above and Denotes have been to Brazil, and their letters incorporate the Brazilian pixaçao lettering style.

Yo, here’s Chu’s video from One Foot in the Grove, ultimate big ups to him for making it – we love videos! So, if you’ve made one, whack the mother up on the Tube of You and ping the details over here. Lots of excting things bubbling away in the Dutchie, we’ll keep on posting Mutate British business and expect events to unfold in the next few months – so fingers off the dial!

Another massive thanks that’s been a long time coming must go to Lyle Rowell, the mastermind behind Lrry the fire burning bull that breaths flame and made an incredible spectacle at both the Behind the Shutters and One Foot in the Grove shows. Lrry and Lyle even make a brief cameo in our Mutate Chicken stop frame film. To get more details and step into the twisted genius world of Lyle’s creations have a look at www.doghead.tv. Here’s a video of the unique madness from our first show…

Filthy Luker makes the world go around…

Posted in Art, one foot in the grove with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 8, 2010 by jack lomax

Filthy Luker is one in a million becuse he makes inflateable street art. He’s installed his work at both Mutate Britian shows and both times he’s made the event better than it would have been without him – we love his unique style and silly but pertinent slant. Here’s a pic of his giant tentacles sprawling from the roof of Cordy House at our first ‘Behind the Shutters’ show…

…Luker has kept on evolving his style to address different aspects of city living, have a look and make your own mind up about what’s going on beyond the obvious, here’s Tentaclaus who you might have seen at One Foot in the Grove…

…also, he says that, “In an effort not to be pigeon holed as an over inflated artist, I went into pigeons.” These brilliant feathered sculptures are a series and are proper head turners, if you’re paying attention that is…

Chu’s genius goes straight over your head…

Right at the start of the show Chu came and painted an amazing piece of perspective painting that you have to look at through a mirror he also installed. Most people are missing it – not least because of Joe’s massive chopper (ahem).  You should have a look at the video and 360 degree images on Chu’s ‘site HERE.

Absolute attention to detail and innovation – what other artist you know investigates the inside of the structure they’re painting on?! Here’s an image of the finshed piece but get down to the last weekend of the show and see it for yourself… if you can find the magic mirror!
