_Hi, I’m 25 and I used to draw monsters since… I don’t know actually…and…

_Shut your face… ok, I’m Monsta, I’m around 4 and I got stuck in the head of this small stupid man…

_hey…I’m not small.

_I love music, pencils, paint, spraycans, markers, coffee, monsters, toys, posters, canvases, walls, roofs…

_I agree…

_And I hate humans!

_wow! don’t you think it’s a bit strong ?

_Naaa… for sure I love some illustrators, street artists, painters or musicians.
I’m glad to share art and to take part in collective activities, That’s why I’m up for the Worldwider project.

_ok…better

Worldwider Fax Cyprus.

November 27, 2008

Worldwider Fax has reached its 6th destination. Cyprus. Ioanna Philippou added the next part to project. You can see below her progress and how the Fax is coming together. It is starting to look very nice and complete. Soon it will be time for a new Fax piece to be launched.

”The thing that makes me unhappy about the society I live in is the ongoing issue of Cyprus dispute. Cyprus is the only divided country left in the world… for almost 35 years now there is a territorial conflict between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots. Cyprus has always been in wars since the ancient times because of its geographic location and of course its beauty… With the opening of the boarders in April of 2003 I had the opportunity to visit a part of my country that I have never seen before and as being part of the younger generation that has not lived through the war I understood how hard but at the same time how important it is for a solution to come. Anyways I guess the thing that makes me unhappy is that there will never be a solution that is truly fair to the people and the war left deep scars in both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots. Ok so to end this I hope that one day a solution will come to my country and Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots can live together and united without any foreign interference.” – Ioanna Philippou

Worldwider Roll: Miami Part 3

November 26, 2008

The illustration was to illustrated what I depict wrong about the society I live in. I find poor education is something that I find wrong in the states. Mixing poor and guns and lack of education is something that must be focus on. So its a montage of elements in one piece. Not sure if that works all together, but why not, it was fun to do. Here are my steps in how I came about to create this illustration. So next is to Brazil, the artist name is Fernando Chamarelli. Enjoy my friends.

Cheers,

Oliver D.

The Worldwider Fax began in England with Nearski, than it arrived in Japan with Nolita, followed were trips to Switzerland with Gladys and Serbia with Nenad. It is now ready to leave Italy where the talented ‘China di Keme’ added his work. The next destination is sunny Cyprus with Ioanna.

It is incredible to see how the piece is manipulated by the transmission of Fax. If you compare the first drawings from Nearski to how they look in the last photo they have changed drastically. Some may say even in to more interesting images.

A Worldwider Tale

November 22, 2008


“In a secret corner of the city, cocooned by the dark Esquilino and Prenestina search the sky…”


e-p1


Today the wonderful Gladys B of Switzerland created a the ‘Worldwider Tale’ a tale which will be created while travelling from country to country. Each artist writes a part of the tale and illustrates it. Gladys obviously spent a lot of time and effort creating the wonderful book in which the tale will continue.

Her work is beautiful isn’t it!

Thankyou Gladys :

New Worlwider Foam + Postcard

November 21, 2008

superstitionsworlwider

This week we will launch a series of mini projects based on the topic of superstitions. The aim of the pieces are to explore how superstitions differ from country to country. In britian there are many old stories, mythes and strange superstitions. Examples being, if you break a mirror it is 7 years bad luck, it is unlucky to walk underneath a ladder, it is unlucky to see one magpie and it is unlucky to spill salt. Good luck can be brought through touching wood, seeing a black cat, or hanging a horse shoe over your door.

My illustrations are based on the Magpie and the spilled salt.

The Postcard is on its way to Monsta in France, while the Foam is on its way to Mariana Pereyra in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Have a great weekend everyone! love Nearski
