Vhils
STREET ART OF THE WEEK

Vhils is a Portuguese street artist who became first noticed when his work appeared alongside an artwork by Banksy in London.

The Times put a picture of him on its front page, get support from Banksy’s agent, and he became a new star of today’s street art. Unlike others (no names) I think that he really deserves his recognition.

Old school graffiti
Nostalgic memories and vandalism

Old school graffiti. Nostalgic memories and poor quality pictures by Mega.

Yesterday I found pictures of some of my old school graffiti from around the year 1998.
The quality of the pics is really bad.
I’m actually sorry about that.
The sad truth is that I actually lost almost every old school graffiti painting that I made.

To make the story short, we are back in the late 90’s.
I’m not that old, but I was really young back then.
Please don’t be nasty or too judgmental because those street art pieces are 13 years old!

Believe me or not, but that kind of style was pretty new school for that era.
At the time I had to get into physical fights because I didn’t want to do wild style letters or B-Boys.

But you know what?
If you want to paint on a wall, you better do what you want.
Create the trends, never follow.
For those who wonder, my graffiti name was not Mega yet, but Rustr(e) or Core.
I recently took a decision: this year I’m going to paint again.

So be prepared, because I plan to create nothing less than the new definition of what new-school is.

WACOM INKLING
Digital sketches

Wacom Inkling review.

Wacom Inkling is a sketch pen that captures a digital likeness of your work while you sketch with its ballpoint tip on any sketchbook or standard piece of paper.
Designed for illustrators, Inkling bridges the gap between paper sketching and digital drawing by giving users at the front end of the creative process a way to rough-out ideas with real ink on paper and capture their concepts digitally so that they can be later refined on their computer. Inkling even allows users to create layers in the digital file while sketching on paper in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

I don’t have one of those nice tools to do my illustrations, but it could actually be a good idea to get one.
It would save me some times, and then I could do even more drawings.

Os Gemeos
STREET ART OF THE WEEK

Os Gemeos is an inspiring duo of Brazilian street artists.

Every week, I try my best to bring you a selection of the best Street Art images.
This week, I show you some nice artworks made by the Brazilian duo of artists Os Gemeos.
Gemeos means “Twins” in Portuguese, the language of Brazil.
The street artists are actually identical twin brothers in the real life.
Their artworks built one of the biggest influences in the Brazilian graffiti scene since their beginnings in the late 80’s.

If you want to know more about the leaders of the graffiti scene in Brazil, don’t forget to check my interviews of the legendary Speto and Rodrigo Level.

Their artworks are a clever social comment of Brazilian society, and in the meantime their art is clearly influenced by the folklores and cultures from the country.

Their graffiti have been internationally acclaimed.
Their street paintings have been featured on the walls around the world, and prestigious galleries like the Tate Modern, the Art Basel, and much more.
Os Gemeo’s graffiti are well-know for the huge scales they never hesitate to face.
They often paint the full face of a whole building with a single character.
You have to respect the commitment and dedication it takes to paint such big surfaces..
The street artists from Brazil helped to define what is the best of today’s graffiti.
