M.U.R. (Modulable, Urbain et Réactif) is celebrating its third anniversary with this graffiti show this weekend in Paris' le Marais. Quite the fan, I went to the opening last night (free drink, sponsored by Malibu, included is always a good thing) at the Blancs Manteaux. Live DJ plus huge hangar-like space and all sorts of graffiti equals dope.
The event, which will run this weekend only, features 80 artists. Enjoy the pics!

Ivan Navarro - this one was sweet because the neon letters were only half-letters that reflected off the different sections of the drum kit to become whole words.

This skull made of hangers really caught my eye even though it was suspended quite high above my head. I've been google-ing to infinity and beyond to find out the creator of this masterpiece (frustrated by my "oh-I'll-remember-the-name-of-the-artist" FIAC mentality). Will get back to you on this. It is interesting to see how many web sites are dedicated the art of the skull, though! Either way, it's pretty dope!
UPDATE: By David MACH, the sculpture is entitled "Stripped to the Bone", Galerie Jerome de Noirmont.

I think I'll organize the next few posts by gallery:

I particularly enjoyed the work of Walter Leblanc - simplistic canvas with a twist. Denise Rene seems to be all about a minimalistic take on innovation.
This one I absolutely love. Jesus Rafael Soto is a new favorite. A play on space and mass, these thin strings create the effect of elevation of the sphere they are attempting to hold up. The overall weighted effect of the peice is amazing in conjunction with the lightness of the individual parts.

Oh man am I liking this one. Sleek and simple! It's a chair and a bookcase at the same time: designed by Mani Mani and produced by the design teams at Fishbol. Currently in the production process, out in 2011. Sweet.

October 5th was Legiterally's first anniversary! Now I know I missed posting about this epic event but a party can only be postponed and never canceled, right? In celebration, I give you the magical showreel of Swedish artist Elias Widerdal (above). He's only 20 years old if you can believe it, and makes some sweet 3D motion design. Below, you will find colorful illustrations by Samuel Carter Mensah, London-raised retro artist with serious flare and a slight air of classic British punk. I mean, can you really ever go wrong with a flat-top?
