CHILE ESTYLE

Pablo Aravena, of Next: a Primer on Urban Art (Canada / France 2007), is planning to make another full-length documentary film: on the booming graffiti scene in his native Chile.  The 10 minute demo of Chile Estyle can be seen on the webpage www.chileestyle.com which is launched today. Check out the interviews with many of Chile´s finest.  The demo was filmed in LA in December, and in Santiago de Chile and Valparaíso in January, i.e. pre the 27 February earthquake.

FUERZA CHILE

Graffiti in Chile is not quaked.  Last week, in Santiago´s Plaza Italia, Guztok of Nadie Crew (Nobody Crew) popped up with ´FUERZA CHILE´ :

Santiago locals liked the girly ´C` and quaking cityscape of the ´L´ in C-H-I-L-E:

So, Mutate’s Captain of British Industry, Gwarm built a box for chew with some other handy heroes. You can see a timeplapse of it’s erection here. Now, there have been a few eye tricky perspective painings (or Trompe D’Oeil if you feel like being a length) doing the rounds on the tinterweb of late – so Chu stepped up and smashed the face off these pretenders with this mind warping piece (it’s on the inside of the box). If you live in Birmingham, or perhaps are within sensible commuting distance, we recomend an inspection. Joe Rush has also made a new piece as part of this series – more to come on that very soon…

Videos and the bubbling Dutchie

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!

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!
