Havana-based Cuban artists Marco Castillo and Dagoberto Rodriguez, who make up the collective Los Carpinteros, created ‘In the Frozen Study of a Disaster’ — an apartment caught mid-explosion that looks like a bomb blast.
Chunks of wall is sent flying, the sofa is showered in shards of glass, and the air is filled with dismembered chairs, tables, fridges, beds and electrical items. It’s like a frozen moment in a movie special effect, all suspended in mid-flight on lengths of fishing line and thin steel wires in an instant of explosive disaster.
The artwork made from IKEA and B&Q furniture painstakingly taken apart in mock-explosion makes the tables, cupboards and doors seem flimsy and papery. You walk past the installation, not through it.
As one Carpintero said, “It’s like marriage. Everything starts out as a wonderful dream and ends up a f***ing nightmare.”
The other Carpintero replied, “Hey, but you’ve never been married, man.”
The Facehunter Show Mexico City - Episode 1, Part 1 of 2
The first episode with Yvan in Mexico City 2008.
The first UK live television ad played out last night on Channel 4 - it was a three-minute spot for Honda, featuring a team of sky jumpers spelling out the brand’s name to promote the ‘difficult is worth doing’ philosophy. Impressive stuff…

"I was just about to blog the Meeting of Styles jam in Bulgaria, purely due to the fact they had a decent looking female writer there and then I realised how many sponsors they had and that also the writers painted all the sponsors logos. Then pops up the CCTV review of the same event! Fantastic!"

CCTVs vs. Meeting of Styles or introduction into legal gayness
Scum, Simone, Rake, Phame, Manyo & Tarke.
CCTVs went for the artfag jam to mindfuck all the organizators (aka GEA graffiti enforcement agency), adobe graffiti painters, stencil cutters, sticker pushers and so on.
MOS was the place where the artfags aka the academic painters officially give a statement about their twisted reallity, about their beleifs that tags, throw ups and letters at all are not graffiti anymore. MOS organizators consider letterings as "old school thing" that sponsors don't like at all. So it was forbidden to paint them on the wall.
The day after we did our wall it was repainted by them artfags, so the CCTVs pay their dues by throwing bottles, fucking up with tags all the surrounding area then RK went on the top of the wall and start shooting for goodbye. Meantime some scared chickens called the police so we fastly left this kingdom of fakeness.
So, thank you stinky Cosmos spray paint, thank you Goethe Institute, thank you Snickers!
The bottom line:
German Akut of Maclaim and the Bulgarian Coast Guard still searching for his ductape somewhere on the beach to finish his 50x50 cm artwork, his half turkish girlfriend Hera raped by Tarke on the hot sand, French Dran (that guy from the Nissan Qashqai ad) scared like frightened chicken when some bottles flyed over his head, sponsors pissed like shit, main organizator (the fat ass retard) fucked up by the local authorities, don't want to see graffiti for the rest of his life. George W. Bush and the United States of America offered helps to the victims and their famillies.
local newspapers headlines:
"Stoned vandals brake and shoot on a graffiti festival"
"You fuckin saboteurs, this was the last event!"
