MQ started painting graffiti in New York in the mid 80s. He is also known as MQUE or MQIZM. MQ has earned himself legendary status for his relentless painting. Around the world you can see his colossal throw-ups, gigantic block letters and subliminal tags. Today MQ’s works is geared towards making poster, paintings and metal stickers. His art works are multi layered; often combining stickers and reflective vinyl with abstract shapes and subliminal writing. His core palette of silver and black with elements of graffiti makes his works easily identifiable. His work is fresh, innovative and constantly evolving.
David Ellis is an artist born into a family immersed in music. In his youth Ellis had little patience with piano lessons or reading sheet music. Instead he absorbed everything on The Super Mix, a Saturday night radio program broadcast from the nearby Fort Bragg military base. Each week a new cassette tape of emerging New York hip-hop found its way into the life of a child growing up in a log house in North Carolina. By the time Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5 released The Message, Ellis was writing rhymes and banging out beats with his friends on the desks at school. Things have since become much louder.
"Towlines" explores the role of the tugboat in modern society; "American Nutria" examines the plight of a species imported to our shores and now reviled; "The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal" observes how destroying one art form creates another; "The Vyrotonin Decision" reflects on some of advertising's most embarrassing moments.

The red-black combo is available at the Portland, Seattle & London stores, plus select stockists around the globe.
There's a huge buzz on the streets, as in the past, black Doc's with red laces is said to have been worn by many fascist punks. Groups on the other side of the agenda-fence have vocalized concerns as to why the good Doc would a release red-black combo, in light of their past relationship in the political/ punk arena.
Here's a handy-dandy lace color chart...just in case you are wondering how to state your politics:
* White = White power/white pride, but also traditionalist/non-racist since it was so common
* Red = Neo-Nazi/National Front, but alternatively used to identify Left Wing or Socialist
* Blue = Killed a cop. Also worn by SHARPs/anti-racist
* Yellow = Worn by SHARPs/anti-racist
* Green = Neutral/non-racist
* Black = Traditionalist skin, punk kid, neutral, or wearing the laces the boots were sold with
* Black + White = Two Tone/into ska or racial unity
* Plaid = Non-racist/neutral
Length: 220 mm

"The Gospel of Hip Hop: First Instrument, the first book from the I Am Hip Hop imprint, is the philosophical masterwork of KRS ONE. Set in the format of a self-help holy book, this 800-plus-page opus is a spiritual manual for citizens of Hip Hop Kulture that combines classic philosophy with faith and practical knowledge, for a fascinating, in-depth exploration of Hip Hop as a life path. Known as "the Teacha," KRS ONE developed his unique outlook as a homeless teen in Brooklyn, New York, engaging his philosophy of self-creation to become one of the most respected emcees in Hip Hop history. As Hip Hop's true steward, KRS ONE painstakingly details the development of the culture and the ways in which we, as "Hiphoppas," can and should preserve its future"

A quote lifted from somewhere else in internet-land "This publication is an initial attempt to examine the trajectory of the X symbol in underground music culture. While the X is broadly associated with the punk scene—in particular, straight edge hardcore—the symbol contains a wide range of often-contradictory meanings. This document presents our ongoing research; we welcome comments, corrections, and criticism"

Loosely quoting Diane Brown, RxART's Founder & Executive Director “The fact that the Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital project is centered on Koons’ transformation of the CT Scan machine is especially significant to the origins of RxArt. The initial idea for RxArt came to me when I was undergoing a CT scan and found that the only way to distract myself from the frightening procedure was to imagine an artwork (a Matthew Ritchie painting) going up the wall and across the ceiling. By entering into this artist’s complex imagery, I was mentally transported out of the sterile environment of the hospital.”

The coppers down-under had been watching REVOKs Tweets, hardcore and were waiting to snatch him up, as the attached video so cleverly diagrams. I don't know 'bout you, but that girlie news reporter is hella hot!
On 10/26, for those of you that follow his Tweets, you could see that some shit was about to drop (as REVOKs post reads) "I CANT FUCKING WAIT TO GET ON THAT PLANE TOMORROW". 11:22 PM Oct 26th.
Homeboy was originally slated for the postponed Clash of the Titans/IRONLAK gig that went sour was various reasons.
REVOK is the fucking man! He did some serious damage (like that 80's Aussie band sang) 'in the land down under'! Hit his website. Buy some gear from his webstore. He's gotta pay some fines.
