Lenny Mcgurr || a FUTURA tale (Short Film)

"At the age of 15, Futura was already obsessed with his visual identity. Motivated by the dream of becoming a famous artist, he created Futura 2000, based on a reference out of a Kubrick movie and a year that seemed so distant, he couldn’t understand how he would still be alive by then.
As a self-taught artist, Futura’s education began on Brodway’s line 1 of the New York City subway, working his way up as one of urban art’s most innovative artists. His solo show at the Fun Gallery in 1982 established him as one of contemporary art’s most happening artist at the time, on the same level as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, becoming a pioneer of the artistic movement of the 80s. He came to be known as 'The Wateau of the Spraycan' and was even compared to Kandinsky.
He held art exhibits in the US and Europe for more than a decade before making commercial collaborations in the 90s that brought graffiti to the masses and inspired new generations of urban artists. Worshiped by artists like Swoon and Neate, Futura’s work is considered to be extremely influential, uniting contemporary pop art with street graffiti. Futura introduced urban art to society, which is now at its peak.
From April 16 to 19 (2013) Futura (NYC, USA), one of the fathers of graffiti in the 70s, intervened an iconic wall located on Insurgentes Avenue, one of the longest avenues in the world. This wall is now part of the circuit of the ALL CITY CANVAS 2012 Festival, which spans through downtown Mexico City."

Skateboarder Magazine || Gurus in the Ganges

"In early February 2013, Sean Malto, Sebo Walker, Mark Suicu and Nestor Judkins traveled to India with a plan of traversing the breadth of the Subcontinent’s core with their ultimate goal to reach the religious festival known as Kumbh Mela gathering. The four sought to try and demonstrate that even in the most densely populated, chaotic places in the developing world, one can indeed push forward and manage to skateboard despite the visceral challenges such conditions present.
The largely diverse footage makes it a real treat for those of you who love skateboarding and pretty likely for some of you who aren’t that familiar with it. Filmed by Patrik Wallner, the full 22-minute video can be viewed below.
And if you want to know more about the trip, read Jonathan Mehring’s account at SkateBoarder Mag."

The Mistery of Flying Kicks

"Murder, sex, drugs, art, politics… sneakers hanging on telephone lines have become a powerful urban symbol, inspiring genesis theories both hilarious and sinister. In an effort to get to the truth once and for all we asked the people of earth to help us solve this mystery. Using an on-line call out and a phone message bank, this documentary was made entirely from donated photographs, phoned-in theories, video, vlogs, and animation."

"Montreal hand-lettering legend Claude Dolbec has been at it for over 25 yrs. Look at any hand-painted window in the Plateau and Mile End neighbourhoods of Montreal and you'll most probably be looking at Claude's work. He is a true artist and an old-school punk-rocker at heart who finds inspiration in vintage American aesthetic of the 40s and 50s. His approach is perfectly in line with the spirit of Clark Street Mercantile and we were honoured he took on our project.
After months of hard work, Clark Street Mercantile officially opened its doors on June 28th, 2013."
