Evan Roth is an artist and researcher based in Paris who explores the intersection of free culture and popular culture, making work simultaneously for the contemporary art world and the “bored at work” network. His notable pieces include L.A.S.E.R. Tag and LED Throwies (Graffiti Research Lab), White Glove Tracking, EyeWriter, Graffiti Analysis and a collaboration with Jay-Z on the first open source rap video. 

His latest series of ‘multi-touch finger paintings’ has turned mundane actions, such as checking one’s Twitter, into a work of art.  These paintings resemble Rorschach tests of the digital age. To create them, he places tracing paper of the screen of his iPhone and then, checks Twitter with an inked finger. The ‘Open Twitter, Check Twitter, Close Twitter’ series has one painting for each day in September, which seems to us to be a very reserved number of times to check Twitter. Other finger paintings in the same vein featured above are Slide to Un-lock and Launch Mail. Read Mail. Close Mail.

INSA GIF-ITTI PROJECTAfter his recent exhibition at Upper Playground, street artist INSA embarked upon a mural project at White Walls of UNIT 44. Bringing his innovative GIF-ITTI to the White Walls Project this is perhaps his biggest and most complex moving piece to date with this rudimentary animation design. Taking three days to re-paint this monster wall four times helped create this completely original result.The beauty of INSA’s GIF-ITI is that it only truly lives when viewed online, where these days most street art ends up being viewed, and exaggerates the ephemeral nature of graffiti as each layer is painted instantly over the last. Mixing retro internet technology and labour intensive painting, INSA creates slices of infinite un-reality, cutting edge art for the tumblr generation.

Some of invaders best pieces around the world.

Clever take on our increasingly ‘plastic society’.

Love this satirical take on Bush’s PR messages. Anti-war street art at it’s best

Banksy Invades the USA

Every morning for the past week, the city of Los Angeles has woken up to a new piece of Banksy street art. As each piece is discovered it is quickly documented on the internet so fans can find it. A Charlie Brown creation Banksy made this week was quickly cut out of the concrete wall it was on and reportedly sold on eBay for US$8000.

My bets are on Banksy to win Best Documentary tonight at the Oscars.
