India’s Truck Art Finally Gets the Documentary it Deserves

When The Beatles came back from their famous trip to India, they brought back a certain “psychedelic” sensibility. You can here the psychedelia in many of their songs, especially in sitar-heavy songs like “Tomorrow Never Knows” from Revolver.

Zenyk Palagniuk – Thread Art

When we think of street art or portraits, we usually think of one medium: paint.

Sea Walls – Murals for Oceans

Public art can serve many different functions. It can help raise awareness about certain issues, beautify a space, claim an area, or even make a bold political statement about a subject about which the artist deeply cares.

Artist Sues Detroit for Mural Protection

Detroit has long been known as a city with some fight in it. Whether it’s the blue collar reputation it received in its automotive heyday, the prominent music scenes that emerged from it over the decades, or the people who refuse to leave even now, when the city’s bankruptcy has made it more decay than […]
