TOP 10: VIDEOS | 2015

The short form video has become an integral part of the global graffiti and street art scene, whether it be from Melbourne, Iceland or anywhere in between. While there are a ton of websites, just like this one, curating and sharing the best of the best public arts found from around the world, the video is the best way to get noticed on an even broader scale. With a mixture of amateur and professional videographers spreading more vandalism and art then ever before, it’s only fitting to compile 10 of the best found throughout the end of this mid-decade point. Anyone can make a video today, but creating an engaging and interesting piece is getting harder with all the other distractions found at our fingertips, with these 10 being some of the best. It should be noted that all the video’s found throughout this website are highly curated and have been on Arty Graffarti for a reason, defiantly positive. 10.

45rpm ironlak strikes selina miles


“My morning coffee tends to be looking up some sort of bit of slang from somewhere and drawing it” Bristol-based Striker slayer 45RPM has developed an (un)healthy obsession with creating impromptu scrawls based around nonsense verbiage informed by cockney rhymes – a type of English slang which originated in the East End of London. Many of the expressions have passed into common language EG: money = bread = bread & honey. It developed as a way of obscuring the meaning of sentences to those who did not understand the slang (often the police). Artist: 45RPM. Instagram: @45rpmwhat Shot/cut: Selina Miles.

DFace A Man and His Dog Book3

BOOK // The Art of D*Face: A Man and His Dog

It goes without saying that D*Face is one of the worlds leading figures in the street art scene, consistently bridging the, always difficult, line between the illegal arts and contemporary gallery world. But along with his always-daring escapades, the visual flair, meaning and social significance behind his work puts him at the forefront of a movement that evolves everyday. With a body of work that has lasted over a decade, D*Face has finally complied a collection of his indoor and outdoor works into this 330+ page monster of a book, One Man and His Dog. Designed for fans new and old to the D*Dog master, this book is a terrific example of why this UK bred, globe trotting artist is one of the most significant representatives of street art today.    Limited to just 5,000 copies, One Man and His Dog, follows D*Face’s last 10 years of work of beginning in England to the far reaches of South America, Australia, America and anywhere else with a love for his art. It’s an interesting visual biography …
