Lastplak Oles "Shower Time" Signed Graffiti Urban Art Print

Lastplak is: Oles, Boortorrie, Sake, Acab, Grrt, Pinwin, Ox-Alien, Ces53, Yen, Mayb and Sterf. The word 'Lastplak' is sort of a play on words in the Dutch language. It is a combination of the old-fashioned word "lastpak" (an annoying person or a pain in the ass) and the word 'plak' (from 'plakken', which means to stick or paste). Combining these words would mean something along the lines of an annoying sticker. Also it can mean an irritating person who puts up stickers or disturbing messages spread using the sticker as medium to do this.

Eco Minded Street Art

Eco-minded street artist Edina Tokodi is putting a new spin on green guerilla tactics in the trendy art enclave of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Tokodi’s site-specific moss installations of prancing animal figures and camouflage outgrowths are the talk of a local urban neighborhood typically accustomed to gallery hype and commercial real estate take-overs. Unlike the market-driven art featured in sterile, white box galleries, the work of Tokodi is meant to be touched, felt, and in turn touch you in the playful ways that her animated installations call to mind a more familiar, environmentally friendly state in the barren patches of urban existence.
