45rpm ironlak strikes selina miles


“My morning coffee tends to be looking up some sort of bit of slang from somewhere and drawing it” Bristol-based Striker slayer 45RPM has developed an (un)healthy obsession with creating impromptu scrawls based around nonsense verbiage informed by cockney rhymes – a type of English slang which originated in the East End of London. Many of the expressions have passed into common language EG: money = bread = bread & honey. It developed as a way of obscuring the meaning of sentences to those who did not understand the slang (often the police). Artist: 45RPM. Instagram: @45rpmwhat Shot/cut: Selina Miles.

VIDEO // The Ironlak Family: Rehlhatna in Dubai – World’s Longest Graffiti

In November 2014, as the people of the United Arab Emirates were gearing up to celebrate their 43rd year as a country, the Ironlak Family set off towards the Middle East from their respective corners of the globe. In Dubai the Lak Fam joined over 100 artists from around the world in an ambitious attempt to set a new world record for the “World’s Longest Graffiti Scroll”. Titled ‘Rehlhatna’, meaning ‘Our Journey’, the main feature of the event was a ridiculously long canvas on Jumeirah Beach which was stretched into the shape of the country. The artists were asked to create work which reflected the past, present and future achievements of the UAE. On the final day, an official judge from Guinness World Records measured out the scroll at 2245.4 metres and declared the new world record set. Big ups to TUESY for making this happen for us. Huge thanks go to Sameh, Eddy and the rest of the crew for executing on this crazy vision and the Crown Prince of Dubai for making it …

VIDEO // Sauce ‘More Shitty Apartments No Doubt…’

A Fly guy defines Melbourne’s current state of destroy and rebuild real estate uglyness, for which I couldn’t agree with more. “More and more entire blocks are being snapped up by developers and demolished. It’s sad really, watching these ugly slap-job apartment blocks spring up all the time. I feel bad for the poor guy next door who now has to live in a shadow with ten balconies overlooking his yard.” – Sauce. *Note: The houses featured in this video are condemned and earmarked for demolition. So don’t freak out or anything, ok?   Ironlak Click here for more from Sauce and Ironlak via Arty Graffarti

VIDEO // Sofles and Friends ‘Limitless’ by Selina Miles

I don’t usually sit here and write something worth reading for the video’s, let’s be honest here, you just want to watch the flippin’ thing! But when something as production heavy as this, the second collaborations between Sofles, Selina Miles and Ironlak, is released, well… there’s just more to be said. Before you watch this one, I highly recommend checking out the first piece Infinite, one of the most skilfully  shot and edited pieces of rap spraying I have ever seen. It”s funny how you can watch something, that is some what simple to put together and think: Damn! why didn’t I think of that?! Now that you’ve seen the first piece, head over to the bottom of this page and watch this one in full screen, your brain may melt, but it’s ok, it’s probably for the best. In all seriousness, this is a crazy good project by all involved, from Quench’s straight burners, Treas‘ style points, Fintan Magee‘s super scaled vandals, Sofles’ limitlessness [painting a piece that has to tip the 100m mark] …
