In THE EAST/WEST Propaganda Project, Agnes B brings together for the first time two preeminent figures of the international street art scene for a confrontation of theirrespective graphic spheres. Based on the principal of emulation and collaboration, this project initiates a visual dialogue between Shepard Fairey (OBEY GIANT) and WK Interact, two artists working in divergent yet surprisingly complementary styles. The artists will produce original works for the show both individually and collectively. The exhibition will be inaugurated at the TOKYO WONDER SITE Art Center in Toky (March 22nd – April 22nd) and then traveling to the Galerie Du Jour Agnes B in Paris (May 16th – June 30th).

AND DONT FORGET TO PICK UP THE NEW SWINDLE!
Swindle issue 10! We actually made it to double digits. More importantly, this issue kicks ass, my bi-ass aside. Our cover subject Henry Rollins was the singer for Black Flag, one of my favorite hardcore bands. He’s done a lot over the years… started has his own band, the Rollins Band, has his own radio and television shows, created his own publishing imprint and tours as a speaker and lecturer with deep political knowledge. Rollins basically embodies all of the do it yourself creative and ethical principals that Swindle champions.
Issue 10 also features the SIRENS OF THE SURREAL, artists Camille Rose Garcia, Seonna Hong, Liz McGrath, and Adele Mildred who share their unique art and feminine perspective.
Remember when skateboarders wore pastel tee shirts and rocked Flock of Seagulls hair don’ts… I do because I was one of them. Well, we got together with the original members and some peripheral supporters of Powell Peralta’s BONES BRIGADE to talk about their influence on skateboarding in the 80’s and what they’ve been up to since then. You have all heard of Tony Hawk, but the entire BONES crew’s contribution to skateboarding, art, music, video games, signature shoes, etc… demonstrates their enduring influence.
Additionally, we’ve got designer Philippe Starck , art, fashion, music , and pop novelty galore… if you aren’t enticed yet you should move to Siberia, but write a story about your experience and submit it to Swindle.
