Beautiful/Decay Lecture: Northern Virginia March 22nd!

va-seal_5_lg

Some of you long time B/D fans know that I originally started the magazine in 1996 while growing up in the suburbs of Northern Virginia. Although there is a lot of talented artists in the region I wouldn’t say that the local community is very supportive of underground magazines, the arts, or creativity in general. Most people are wrapped up in the politics of D.C. and could care less about art. So it was a a great surprise to get a call from Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) asking me to come to my hometown and give a talk about B/D. Needless to say I jumped at the chance.I’ve always wanted to go back to where it all started in hopes of inspiring the next wave of Viriginia artists to give the middle finger to mediocrity and make things happen. Not only are the fine folks at NOVA flying out yours truly but they have an entire week of events including a public mural program, workshops on stenciling and wheatpasting, and a batch of other talks to get your creative juices flowing. This event is completely free and open to the public. If you’re in the Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland area come by and say hello. It should be a good time!

The people at Actop, a Barcelona based creative agency, have a new website and updated it with some new awesome projects. They collaborate with many artists and experiment on a wide range of media: print, animation, motion graphics, live visuals and new approaches to the moving image.

Their latest work is a two short piece to promote Nova, a creative event at the Museu da Imagem e do Som (MIS) in São Paulo. Here are some screencaps of the shorts but you can watch the full shorts here.
