“EL MAL CON BIEN SE APAGA”

Don Rimx

Streetartandgraffiti.com reports “Don Rimx’s unparalleled artistry sets him apart from the rest. As a classically trained fine artist, graffiti purist, grand scale muralist and new school tattoo artist, Don does it all.” David Sepulveda, aka Don Rimx, grew up in a public housing project in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He says drugs and violence were part of his everyday life but his parents kept him “on the straight and narrow” and nurtured his interest in drawing from an early age. Upon completion of his studies he has applied his classical art skills to the world of urban art, and murals in particular. In 2009 Don Rimx moved to Brooklyn and credits the big city with having a profound affect on his work. Despite his moving his family to Miami in 2014 he painted this 2016 mural at Jefferson St. and St. Nicholas Ave. in Bushwick, Brooklyn for the Bushwick Collective. @donrimx @thebushwickcollective @street_art_and_graffiti

After five years of planning and fundraising, Seven Magic Mountains, a large-scale site-specific public artwork by Ugo Rondinone, is now on view in Nevada through May 2018. 

Mediating between geological formations and abstract compositions, Seven Magic Mountains consists of locally-sourced limestone boulders stacked vertically in groups ranging between three and six. Each stone boasts a different fluorescent color; each individual totem stands between thirty and thirty-five feet high. 

“Seven Magic Mountains elicits continuities and solidarities between human and nature, artificial and natural, then and now,” states Rondinone.

“Sakia, Sakia, Sakia, Sakia” is a mural I completed earlier this week in Newark, NJ. ‪#‎SakiaGunn‬ was a teenage girl who was stabbed by a man after her and her friends refused him on the street. She was 15, black, a girl, and gay. This month marks the dates of her death (May 11) and birth (May 26). It felt really appropriate and important to paint her portrait. However, I was nervous because I had trouble getting in touch with her family to get permission before starting the mural. But a few days into it, through social media, we found each other and there was nothing but love.
This mural is a part of a mural of project called ‪#‎GatewaystoNewark‬ to spans over a mile on McCarter Hwy and features dozens of amazing artists. Because the murals are off of a highway, we had to work over night for only a week. 9PM - 4AM everyday.
I’m not from Newark. I didn’t know Sakia personally. But she was a young black queer girl and deserves to be seen and her story heard. While painting, many people drove by a yelled out her name. A few people got out of there cars to tell me they knew her.
This is the stuff that public art is good for.

THE SPRINGS

Christina Angelina with Ease One

Venice, California, native Christina Angelina, aka Starfighter, is an avid student of art and history, not only at NYU’s Tisch School and Pasadena’s Art Center, and at UCLA where she received her BFA, but also in Italy and Greece. She collaborated with Ease One to complete two murals for LA Arts District vegan restaurant and yoga studio, The Springs, in 2014—just two of the 54 murals she completed in that year alone. New York couple Jared Stein and Kimberly Helms were in Los Angeles in 2012 as part of a musical touring company when inspiration for the Springs hit. As they drove around the area Stein told the LA Times “I stopped the car and said, ‘This is it!’ And Kimberly said, ‘This is what?’ He explained his idea, and after the musical tour, they quit their jobs and moved West in 2012.” @starfightera @thespringsla @easeone_tx

“INGRID BERGMAN”

Genoski

Pasadena, California, artist, Gino Gaspara, aka Genoski, painted this tribute to classic Hollywood actress Ingrid Bergman in 2012. At the corner of Eloise St. and Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, it is one of two pieces he has painted on the walls of Strictly German auto repair. Swedish actress Bergman (1915–1982) won three Oscars as well as two Emmys, four Golden Globes, a British Academy Award, and a Tony. Brought to Hollywood in 1939 by David O. Selznick, he is reported by his son Danny as having complained “She didn’t speak English, she was too tall, her name sounded too German, and her eyebrows were too thick.” He later wrote, however, “Miss Bergman is the most completely conscientious actress with whom I have ever worked.” Perhaps best known for her role in the 1942 Casablanca, across from Humphrey Bogart, she also starred in three movies for Alfred Hitchcock. @genoski
