Rammellzee – The Ikonoklast Samurai

By Greg Tate

Once upon a time in the Bronx, before HipHop had a name, or came to be defined by the Five Elements of MCing, breakdancing, B-boying, turntabling and the painting known as graffiti, it had Writers. These scribes wrote on the trains of New York’s subway system. Mostly they wrote their names: a host of colourful noms de plume.

Victoria Reynolds: Meat Paintings

Quote from an interview of Victoria Reynolds “In my body of work, raw flesh is presented in an ostentatious, hedonistic manner. The paintings are meant to be visually sumptuous, voluptuous and sensual. I depict raw flesh for its associations with sensuality, our carnal nature and mortality, sins and pleasures of the flesh, and love of the world.

Shadi Ghadirian: “Like Every Day”

Adbusters: “Hipster – The Dead End of Western Civilization”

“We are a lost generation, desperately clinging to anything that feels real, but too afraid to become it ourselves. We are a defeated generation, resigned to the hypocrisy of those before us, who once sang songs of rebellion and now sell them back to us. We are the last generation, a culmination of all previous things, destroyed by the vapidity that surrounds us.

BMX mounted soundsystems: Made In Queens

A new biker gang is roaming the streets of Richmond Hill, Queens. This crew of mostly teenagers can be seen riding along 103rd Avenue just west of the Van Wyck Expressway.
