Friday Round Up: Found on the Internet

Take a look at this awesome (as in awe-inspiring) round-up of  106 street art pictures from the last year(see above for a taste of the most ambitious yarn bombing I have yet to see). For anyone who has ever dismissed street art as slapdash sharpie scribbles on a bus shelter, these images will set you straight. The best street art plays so perfectly with  its surroundings that you almost walk right by before realizing the political or creative statement it makes. Plus, it’s free and for the people – what’s not to love!?

How did we miss this? Our bad. In Late November,  Microcosm Publishing posted a Q&A with Ayun Halliday, the creator of the East Village Inky, on the occasion of her 48th (!!) issue of illustrated perzine.

A new conversational podcast Chittu Chattu from journalist and critic Julianne Escobedo Shepherd as well as  Ashok “Dapwell” Kondabolu of the alt hip hop group Das Racist. The first episode is here and the guest is Lil Internet, a host at online channel Karmaloop TV.

Also, these pictures of a colourful sticker-covered (formerly white) room are circulating the internet. This is a simple but surprisingly effecting by installation artist Yayoi Kusama who invited children to cover a room at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art  in these circular stickers. Pure pretty.
