In paris with the legend
In the framework of the first international festival of graffiti taking place in Papeete, Tahiti New Generation organizes an international graffiti contest named: ONO’U Battle. It will be held on 10 and 11 May 2014 in Papeete on the Place Toata.
The organizing committee recalls that the 16 international invited guest artists of the ONO’U festival (presented under the tab “Artists” ) will realize many performances in front the public but will not participate in the contest.
International candidates selected to compete the finals in Papeete will be offered accommodation and catering in Tahiti for six days, from 7 to 12 May, 2014.
A significant discount on the regular flight fare to Tahiti will be offered to selected candidates flying with Air Tahiti Nui, official sponsor of the festival.

After a year of hectic travels and painting all over the world, I ended the year back in Denmark. The Danish winter is not a season for full color productions, so its good to have some indoor spots to retreat to, one could call them laboratories. I have a could of labs and one I like to visit every year is located south of Copenhagen. Together with Tiws we have painted a couple of walls here in past winter seasons and now it was time to refresh one after a big skateboard ramp was built over parts of it. Labs are places of experiments, so we decided to try the classic pieces-floating-in-space scenario, but give it a visual twist. I dug up some old Jack Kirby comics and used them as a foundation for the background, and painted an oldschool Silver Surfer in the middle, and after two days in the freezing cold skate spot, the production was completed.
Merry Xmas and seasons greetings to everyone!
