“The University of the Arts’ Davies Street Arts Gallery won’t be around for very much longer—it’s about to be demolished to make way for the new Crossrail development. Don’t feel too sorry for it, though, it’s about to move to a posh new site slap bang in the middle of the King’s Cross development. It’s determined to go out with a bang, though, and the last exhibition is suitably epic. Artist Mike Ballard has used the whole gallery including the floors and ceilings to create a massive graffiti and collage-inspired piece entitled The All of Everything (Art Will Eat Itself). It’s a no-holds-barred romp through the artist’s personal art history, encompassing street art, Pop art, cave art, Renaissance art, the baroque era, superheroes and shamans. Get there before the bulldozers do, in the meantime check out some shots from the exhibition here…”

“Belin is a contemporary urban artist true to the nature of modern street culture. In a magical twist of history, skill and beauty, Belin blends expressionism, surrealism, photorealism, graphic design and graffiti into a visual world without boundaries.
Belin started out painting over ten years ago, and now has a huge portfolio. His stone canvases can be mostly seen in his home town of Linares, which is a small town in Andalucia, Spain. If you ever get the chance go and see for your self! Each street is peppered with a piece of Belin.”

Halo is designed by Aïssa Logerot. The LED spray can comes with a number of different colored LED nozzles for changing the color of the light. Just like the rechargeable flashlights you shake to power the light, Halo uses kinetic energy to power the LED. Makes a lot sense considering that you need to shake an ordinary spray paint can before you can begin painting.
