Here is my newest addition to my bodyless girl series. I painted them in the bar I did the mural at and made some posters. I still need to put them on the street but they are just such a pain in the ass I´m gonna get caught by the cops for sure. So if I don´t make it back to Canada by April 12th, I´ll be in Argentinian jail, come visit!

NEWIn my current home of Fernie(remember?) there is a swamp which doubles as an awesome junkyard. I went seat-belt harvesting in there the other day and collected some good junk. It's easy to get around because the swamp is still frozen. There are skeletons of old trucks and buses and all sorts of random metal. I collected some pieces and put together this little guy.

So a bunch of of people were rounded up in Montreal and went on a serious mission to wheatpaste/sticker up a glass store front on St.Laurent in Montreal. It was Nuit Blanche. The piece is composed of wheat paste black and white monsters behind a Palestinian-Israeli apartheid wall sticker (who's the monsters???). We put it up on an abandoned modern art gallery which has been taged up by every graffiti artist in Montreal. The cold worked against us and so did some locals. It was too cold for wheatpaste and sticky paper to stick. Everything looked raggedy. To top it all off, the fellow who did his tag up beforehand didn't think he had enough fame time on the spot so he came and ripped off all our work in the night. Ephemeral street art with friends; better than ego tags around town??. Graffiti politics...

Everyday biking on my way to Palermo (neighbourhood in Buenos Aires), I pass this other neighbourhood called Once. It´s full of texitle stores and stores that sell mostly junk, usually all grouped with their competition for some reason (I´ve never really understood that about business). At the end of Once there are a bunch of maniquin stores within the same block that just about blew my mind the first time I saw them. I probably almost got hit by a bus. Scary shit, the maniquins and the bus, can´t believe these things really exist, not to mentions stores for them, but they are awesome!
