Thomas Schostok is a designer from Germany and he makes me sick his designs are so badass.  He mixes sweet typography with graffiti, trash and collage to produce some amazing work in all mediums.

Alexandre Farto

The current show at the infamous Lazarides Gallery in Londons Rathbone Place features a young man from Portugal called Vhils AKA Alexandre Farto.

Vhils started his career as a traditional graffiti artist – exploring less conventional mediums, manipulating his imagery into layers of torn away billboard advertising, etching into metal and chiseling his work directly into walls.

Originally executed in the street, it’s interesting to see how these works translate into the Gallery environment. It’s nice that some of the pieces even appear to have been carved out of the gallery walls themselves.

The show even comes complete with a full-scale cast of part of a tube train: a collaboration with the also very talented Ponk from Bristol.
