Kev Grey is an artist and illustrator from Liverpool, and he's got a new book out.

Crispy clean lines, mostly based on traditional tattoo flash, low-brow art and
skeletons. You might recognise his work for East Skateboards and Mackeys Lost Art
store in Liverpool. Sick. You should probably buy a copy.

He's doing a little bit of something for us at the moment (but that's top secret).

Check him out.

Perspective Line

Just watched a great short film by Bastien Lattanzio called Perspective Line. Really well shot and great music too.

What some people find ugly others find beautiful, this is what I love about art.

Ugly places, scary places can become places of sanctuary for some.

This artist has taken beauty and ugliness and mixed it together with his sweet emotion.

Zezao is one of Brazil’s most famous graffiti artists and I love the fact that he finds beauty in a place that others dare not to think about.

There is a great interview with him see below for a taste and click here for the rest

More of his beautiful work here

‘We walk deep into the sewer tunnels. Zezao is armed only with an aerosol can and a cigarette lighter to use as a blowtorch in case we're swarmed by cockroaches or rats. Finally he chooses a wall and gets to work. Most graffiti artists choose highly visible sites for their canvas, but for Zezao, his art is more personal than public.’
