Takashi Murakami joins U.N.-sponsored event to school Asian children

NEW YORK – Artist Takashi Murakami joined the leaders of UNICEF, Spanish soccer club FC Barcelona and the director of the Reach Out To Asia campaign in New York on Friday to launch a joint drive to improve the lives of marginalized children in Bangladesh, Indonesia and Nepal.

The “1 in 11″ campaign involves artists and world-famous athletes, including Argentine soccer superstar Lionel Messi and American tennis pro Serena Williams, to raise global awareness of the fact that 58 million out of 650 million children of primary school age, or 1 in 11 youngsters, are not in classrooms.

“Through my participation in this campaign I have been learning a lot about the actual condition of the children around the world,” Murakami said.

“If participation in the campaign can help improve the situation even little by little, it would be wonderful,” he said.

Murakami is one of 17 artists who will donate works to a major auction at Sotheby’s in London on Feb. 12.

Bambi Hits Shoreditch Against Ferguson Missouri Cops

Shoreditch, London, Street art, stencil, Bambi, Michael Brown, Ferguson, Missouri, “Don’t do it”, “Just Do it”, “Don’t Shoot”

London street artist Bambi has created a powerful new stencilled piece of street art on a ”virgin” (bare brick, un-painted) wall in a high profile location in Shoreditch.

The subject is Michael Brown, though the image looks more like Obama (the ears?) repeated 5 times in a manner which ironically is a bit reminiscent of Warhol’s multiple gun toting Elvis image . The wall is right opposite Cargo night club and sits facing a couple of famous Bansky images, which also reminds us that Bambi has been often acclaimed (without foundation) as the female Banksy.

HOW STREET-GENERATED FOOTAGE FUELED HBO’S NEW DOC ON STREET ARTIST BANKSY

Director Chris Moukarbel talks to Co.Create about sourcing user-generated footage to make the film and shares Banksy’s reaction to it.

Director Chris Moukarbel wasn’t in New York City when Bansky embarked on his month-long residency in October 2013, unveiling a new piece of street art each and every day in one of the five boroughs. Still, Moukarbel was able to make a film about Banksy’s wild art spree by piecing together user-generated footage he found on the Internet. “HBO actually approached me about making the movie almost a month after he’d left town. So right from the beginning it was this archival project,” Moukarbel tells Co.Create. “It really was about uncovering a story that already taken place.”
