@studiocatherine Not in the slightest! Our printers just require a little extra time.
Eine puts the typographic grunge in graffiti. Most famous for his ‘Alphabet Street’ shutters that adorn London streets, even President Obama has an original piece of Eine art in his collection. Travelling last year throughout Mexico, Miami, California and the UK, the below snippets are extracts from Eine’s global street art tour diary.
I painted this down in Oakland. It’s on the side of an old music venue/crack house that’s slowly being turned back into a venue. Social Club seemed to fit very nicely.
I’m in Miami for Art Basel, and this is my first piece, ‘Vandals’. This time of year in Miami so many people are painting stuff on the street that the police turn a blind eye on you, which is nice.
THE BREAD OF THE RICH / IS THE STRUGGLE OF THE POOR
So, three weeks in Mexico City finally comes to an end. We managed to paint something every other day. It’s a pretty free city where you can kind of paint where you want – there
is so much graffiti here that no one cares. The cops are all on the take, so if you do get in
trouble it’s no more than 20 bucks for a ‘get out of jail free’ card. I love this place.
Hastings Old Town, UK
This empty spot had been painted with a diabolical piece of public art for as long as I’ve lived here. Steph (my PA) tracked down and spoke with the right people and quickly permission came my way to paint some ‘street art’. The amount of huffing and puffing and ‘we preferred it before’ was quite comical. Street artists – come to Hastings if you still want to feel like a radical revolutionary.
Tenderloin, San Francisco
This mural was painted with the children of Redding Elementary, as part of a global movement to solve the climate crisis, organised by 350.org.
