If you are in Detroit go visit Askew’s new show “Entropy”. Its open until september 9!
ASKEW is recognized worldwide for his unique approach to graffiti art and remains at the forefront of the international art scene through constantly exploring new and exciting styles in a world of imitators.
Through this new body of work “Entropy” further refines Askew’s unique method of portraiture where the medium and portrait’s subject become a metaphor for a much bigger conversation. The portrait is the closed-system device used to represent the formation of immense entities of barely contained energy that have reached an entropic state, only moments from encountering a cataclysmic event. It is a discussion about formation, existence and more specifically the fragility of all things – our incessant quest for balance and harmony in any society, when all things eventually deteriorate or revert to a state of chaos.

Rooftop.sk did a quiet interesting and simple test with eight different spray paint brands. The test shows that price isn´t everything you should consider when you choose what brand to use for your pieces. Unfortunately they didn´t include the very popluar Montana BLACK, Montana GOLD Ironlak or KOBRA but hopefully future tests by Rooftop.sk or someone else will include all brands. The test was made using 400ml cans with a pink dot fatcap on a white wall. Here is the final rankning: 1. Belton MOLTOW Premium, 2. Belton MOLOTOW High-Pressure, 3. Blue FLAME, 4. MTN 94, 5. Flame (Old quality), 6. MTN Hardcore 2, 7. Supertramp, 8. Clash.
