The Bomb It 2 website describes it best “In the follow-up to the explosive global graffiti documentary Bomb It, director Jon Reiss takes audiences to previously unexplored areas of the Middle East, Europe, Asia, the United States and Australia on a hunt for innovative street art and artists.
Bomb It 2 explores the indigenous street art scenes in Singapore, Bangkok, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Tel Aviv, Perth, Melbourne, Copenhagen, Chicago, Austin and the Palestinian refugee camps on the West Bank.
Using a ultra compact camera and sound package, Reiss travelled by himself to film artists and writers representing a wide range of cultures, styles and beliefs including Alex Face, Ash Keating, Beejoir, Bon, Darbotz, Foma, Great Bates, Husk Mit Navn, Inspire, Killer Gerbil and Zero, Klone, Know Hope, Phibs, Mars, MIC, Sloke, Stormie Mills, Thor, Twoone, Vexta, Victor Ash, Xeme, and Zero Cents, among others. 
In the Middle East, Reiss talks with Muhnned Alazzh in the West Bank where Alazzh emphasizes the cultural and political significance of writing on the wall in the Palestinian refugee camps. To Alazzh, graffiti and street art have no place on the barrier between Israel and Palestine because they distract the public from “ugliness of that wall”.
In Jakarta, Indonesia, Darbotz’s work is heavily influenced by his study of semiotics. Instead of applying a signature to his pieces, Darbotz paints his signature squid monsters in black and white, to distinguish them from the explosion of color on the Jakarta streets.
In Singapore, Reiss connects with street artists Zero and Killer Gerbil, who explain the paradox of doing graffiti in one of the most highly policed states in the world. Despite the serious risk of fines, jail time and canings, the friends explain why getting their message out through their art work is more important than suffering the possible legal consequences.”

Who: Stupid Krap.
What: Bomb It 2 – Australian Premiere.
Where: State Library of Queensland – Stanley Place, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 4101.

Snapshots – Daek William – Welcome To The World Of… – Linton and Kay Galleries – Perth

Sorry for the delay in this post folks.

Tuesday the 2nd of July saw the opening night of ‘Welcome To The World Of…‘ at Linton and Kay Galleries by Brooklyn based Perth artist, Daek William. The first solo exhibition in his hometown since his move to Brooklyn was a huge show, both in the the body of work and the opening night turn out. The night was distinctly Daek, with trademark renderings of folded and pictorial headdresses and the wine served in tea cups. Daek had made a lot of the work tactile and articulated, encouraging the public to engage and touch, rub, flick on a switch and even sniff the works. The works responded by automated moving parts, scents and change of colour. Too often an artist, whether intentionally or not, alienates the viewer and puts their work on a pedestal that the public must keep a respectful distance from. Daek’s background as a street artist seems to have carried over into his fine artwork exhibitions.

‘Welcome To The World Of…’  was a tight show by a talented original artist.  If this is any indication of things to come, Daek William is one to watch.

Snapshots – Jurne – Great – Mags – Garage Sale – Krakow

Polands been pretty rad so far (oh yeah, I’m in Polamd – more on that in a Sojourn post soon!), and tonight was pretty cool too. The guys at V9 studios in Warsaw put me onto a great little show here in Krakow, so I stopped by to check out a bunch of art from Jurne, Great and Mags put on at Garaz.

Garaz is a pretty cool little spot just outside of Krakows Old Town, a little innocuous space full of art amongst a bunch of car garages – I thought it was a brilliant idea, actually.

It was a cool show, alas I couldn’t stay too long as I’m fucking off to Budapest first thing in the morning – but I’m glad I managed to make it and to meet the artists, I’ve been a fan of all of their work so it was nice to get a chance to see some of it on some walls!
