[Design] UrbanKind – Art Décor

Posted in Art, Design, Recommended by the.Zoo.keeper on October 13, 2010

UrbanKind - Art Décor

urbankind is the only place globally to source “one-off” pieces of “Art Décor”.

if you are looking for exclusive & original pieces of furniture with an added twist – décor containing unique / “one-off” urban art designs by some of the most famous UK artists, then look no further. – UrbanKind

it’s been a couple months since the Zoo HQ got a refurb, so these pieces from Urbankind are a real find. offering something a little different to Ilan Dei’s, Awake Your Inner Vandal series of ‘graffiti furniture‘; this collection is slightily more atypical, offering a cool collection of “one-off” furniture pieces, made more urban by designs from some of the best UK graffiti artists, think kinsey meets the Antiques Roadshow.

& even if we can’t afford the décor, we can join the FaceBook group.

[Print] Wooster Collective – Trespass: A History Of Uncommissioned Urban Art

Posted in Art, Print, Recommended by the.Zoo.keeper on September 22, 2010

Wooster Collective - Trespass: A History Of Uncommissioned Urban Art

What makes Trespass different than other street art books is that it’s not a street art book? It’s a book that certainly includes street art and graffiti, but goes beyond that to also address performance, protest, sculpture. . . and the whole goal of the book was to really look at the context of street art in a much larger historical perspective. – Marc Schiller

this is a collaborative effort between Wooster Collective husband and wife team Marc and Sarah Schiller, Paper magazine senior editor Carlo McCormick, and over 150 featured artists, Shepard Fairey, Blu, Jenny Holzer, and Bansky to name a few, Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art looks like another Zoo HQ coffee table must have; from Taschen it hits the shelves this october.

[Print] skForlee – Walls Notebook

Posted in Print, Recommended by the.Zoo.keeper on September 7, 2010

skForlee - Walls Notebook

admittedly this is a late edition to the Zoo coffee table but Sherwood Forlee‘s – Walls Notebook is nothing short of genius; giving you wall-after-wall of New York city real estate that (suprisingly) has/had remained untainted; allowing you to ‘graf da wall up’ in the comfort of your home, office cubical, wherever; i guess it sort of defeats the rebellion graffiti, in part, represents but hey, long nights hanging precariously from a bridge doing ‘a Banksy‘ has never sounded like a good idea.

now here’s what to do, check out skForlee’s website, and buy the book; you probably won’t want to draw in it but @ 6.46, buy 2!

now i’m no graf artist but next time i’m in New York there’s going to be a lot stick men popping up all over the cities walls. try it out on your screen below; use a sharpie for that permanent effect.
