Boost Mobile’s $1/Day - Live Painting !

September 4th, 2008

An exciting Boost Mobile event happening at Karmaloop on Saturday, September 6 from 12noon - 4pm!

Boost Mobile, as part of promoting their new $1 a day chat plan, is sending members of their artist collaboration (infamous graffiti artists Retna, Saber, Revok, and Ewok) to give a live painting demonstration at the front of the Newbury Street store.

The four artists will be at Karmaloop giving away and signing posters. In addition, there will be a reception and the DJ Stylings of Red Foxx.

Karmaloop

Ewok
Born in Memphis, Tennessee raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for most of his life, George joined RVCA in 2003. In 2004 he relocated to the RVCA headquarters in Costa Mesa, where he now works in their on-site studio and has officially become a California transplant. His artwork is a tedious mixture of hand and computer illustrations, where he tries to create a balance between classic and modern styles in his art. His pastimes include dining out with friends (especially Indian cuisine), watching the Packers and watching the box set of the “Leprechaun” movies.

Saber
For over 15 years SABER has used the urban landscape as a monumental canvas influencing local street art styles the world over. In 1997, SABER painted the world’s largest street art piece on the cement banks of the Los Angeles River. Measuring 250’ x 55’ and using 125 gallons of latex roller paint, this massive expression of raw street power is considered one of the most important pieces in street art history.

Prolific and diverse, SABER’s work extends beyond his street art by catching the attention of the fine art world with his hyper real oil paintings of cityscapes. SABER is also noted for his ability to translate his work into three-dimensional sculptures collected by art aficionados and those that are part of the urban culture scene.

SABER’s work has contributed to the advancement of contemporary street art as a legitimate art form extending its reach far beyond its primary roots.

Karmaloop

Retna
When Los Angeles-based graffiti artist RETNA’s work first appeared in the mid-nineties, what made it stand apart from the rest was its unique layering. His color palette was so intricate, so carefully chosen, his pieces often looked to have been daubed on with a paint-brush. Quite the achievement when you consider he was painting on walls, trains, bridges, and freeway overpasses in the black of night.

Frequently inspired by images of females found in magazines and corporate advertisements, RETNA is especially known for embellishing existing fashion advertisements overlaying a classic style that recalls Mayan and Egyptian hieroglyphs, and even Byzantine religious mosaics.

Since first making his name in 1997, RETNA has found himself in popular demand, especially in the music world. R&B artist Usher is a big fan (RETNA-fied paintings of Marvin Gaye, Sade and Miles Davis hang in his home). RETNA’s art has also appeared in pop videos for Kylie Minogue and Will Smith, and he appeared alongside Metallica at the American Music Awards, creating one of his signature pieces live on stage.

“Looking at pop culture and adapting it to a more classical style is what I am known for as an artist,” he says. “It’s something I learned to do on the street and I’m proud to now incorporate in my paintings.”

Karmaloop

Revok
The easiest way to get noticed in the graffiti world is to paint high-profile, hard-to-reach spots. But the attention doesn’t always mean respect: simply climbing a building and painting it means next to nothing if it’s not done well. Los Angeles-based graffiti artist Revok has been painting mind-blowing, seemingly inaccessible spots, with grace and style, around the country for 15-plus years now.

Subsequently, tales of his exploits have reached folklore status within the graffiti world. REVOK’s distinctive style has influenced countless artists, who have done their best to emulate his handiwork, forcing him to get more creative and broaden his stylistic repertoire. He has reinvented the alphabet several times over, giving his letters life and so much movement that they seem to jump off the wall.

This past summer, REVOK has spread his name throughout Europe, appearing at numerous festivals to paint for fans and onlookers. Now European writers can join their American counterparts in admiration of REVOK’s unparalleled talents. REVOK’s creative skills are also becoming recognized and demanded for in the advertising and marketing world.

LIVE PAINTING w/ Retna, Revok, Saber, & Ewok
Saturday, September 6th - 12noon – 4pm
Featuring: DJ Red Foxx - @ Karmaloop 160 Newbury St Boston, MA 02116 (617) 369-0100

footlocker

A unique, private recording booth will be installed into the Cardiff Foot Locker location for three exclusive days of auditioning for hopefuls reluctant to pitch their talent in front of shrewd judges. Instead, they can record their entry individually or as a group whilst checking out the latest sneakers fit for an urban superstar.

Synonymous with great music and fashion, the Urban Music Awards and Foot Locker are on a mission to unveil the next generation of urban music talent in the UK through this exclusive new search.

A selection of the most talented, and the most entertaining, auditions will be shown exclusively on UMA. Successful auditions could qualify for the televised heats, to be broadcast weekly on Flava TV - Sky channel 357, Channel U and Invincible TV online starting on 16th July.

The winner of the talent search will be presented with the coveted Foot Locker “Britain’s Next Urban Superstar” award at The Urban Music Awards ceremony hosted on 1st November, 2008.

The lucky competition winner to be crowned “Britain’s Next Urban Superstar” will be awarded a series of prizes to support their talent including £5,000, a chance to perform at the UMA’s, exposure on a television show, a 1 year recording contract, 12 month recording studio time, a music video, Foot Locker vouchers and, of course, a prestigious Urban Music Award.

Chor Bazaar

September 3rd, 2008

Chor Bazaar is an Indie – Indian – fused t-shirt label based in Brooklyn, NY, with firm roots in, India.

CBAZ

Our designs are meant not just to be “cool” but to evoke memories of experiencing India, the India that our parents were raised in and the one that exists today. Both are far different but both are still very Indian.

CBAZ

Umang, Chor Bazaar:

Our mission is to expand the Indian-fusion art form to another realm. Most have experienced this, “fusion”, in music and literature but have hardly seen this transpire into urban apparel. We utilize the medium of our graphic t-shirts to assist in creating an identity that stems farther than mainstream’s portrayal of Indian culture.

CBAZ

We take great care not to exploit South Asian culture and deter from using kitschy or religious connotations, like the Om symbol and a deity with eight arms. Our shirts are designed to allow anyone to wear them without the dismay of the South Asian community.

CBAZ

Curry is played out and there is so much more for us to project.

CBAZ

Chor Bazaar adds a bit of fun and integrity to the idea of identity and culture.

Zu Boutique

September 3rd, 2008

Zu Boutique is here to pay homage to pop culture, forward thinking, and
hedonism through highly exclusive, lovely to touch, ultra fabulous graphic
tees.

Zu Boutique

Out of our deep love of Music, Movies, Vegans, Heathens and anything
else our self-indulgent hearts desire, we bring our shirts to those who
share our passions.

Danny, Zu Boutique:

“These tee shirts are literally not for everyone. Each tee we print is
limited to a run of 100 pieces and every shirt is subtly but visibly numbered from 00 to 99.

Zu Boutique

Every month we will present you with new designs; but when a design is sold out, that’s that. It’s over. So if you like something, it’s best to go for it while you have the chance, before your savvy friend (or enemy) beats you to it.

Zu Boutique

Why all this? Because it’s fun to have something fantastic that no one else does. Don’t you agree?

To all those who DO know and were meant to: thank you, much respect and enjoy”.

Do u know Pyromaniac ?

September 2nd, 2008

Pyromaniac

Two years ago PYROMANIAC was born, the second wind to a fire that started burning three years before, when CANTWO joined forces with MONTANA CANS to make an impression on urban streetwear couture.

Pyromaniac

Stelio, PYROMANIAC :

” With fresh Graffiti styles, we enjoyed highlights like appearances at Bread and Butter’s in Berlin as well as being asked to design the official Splash Festival 2004 t-shirt.

Pyromaniac

Not to mention the collaborations with writers/artists like BANOS - PUBES, SMASH - CRONE, SCOTTY – KANE, STOHEAD.
Since then we have learned a great deal about the textile industry and are now really ready to put the growing pains behind us and consequently follow our true vision.

Pyromaniac

Today we see ourselves as a brand that inspires people to tend the fire of their dreams no matter what, we know how hard this can be at times … Pyromaniac

Pyromaniac

PYROMANIA by definition has everything to do with being on fire. We at PYROMANIAC are “On Fire” with Inspiration, Creativity and Passion for what we do.

Pyromaniac

PYROMANICs’ roots run deep in the graffiti scene from the tools production side with Montana Cans and legendary writers/artists like CANTWO who is synonymous with our FLAMESKULL logo.

Pyromaniac

These stick up kids have grown into something burning with passion for the arts , music, hot sports and urban lifestyle.
