Prada Marfa

In 2005, a pair of Scandinavian artists, Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, unveiled, a sculpture masquerading as a Prada mini-boutique, called Prada Marfa, nearby the towns of Valentine and Marfa in western Texas. Located along an isolated stretch of U.S. Highway 90, the 15-by-25-foot adobe and stucco building was partially funded by the Prada Foundation, with the assistance of American architects Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello. To the dismay of potential shoppers, the doors were sealed shut. — in Wikipedia

The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal

“The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal” is a documentary about the art that comes from the act of removal of a graffiti where the person is not aware of the art he is creating. The documentary also focus the different styles that result of the different removal methods, some description taken from the official page,

“Graffiti removal: the act of removing tags and graffiti by painting over them.

Subconscious art: a product of artistic merit that was created without conscious artistic intentions.

It is no coincidence that funding for “anti-graffiti” campaigns often outweighs funding for the arts. Graffiti removal has subverted the common obstacles blocking creative expression and become one of the more intriguing and important art movements of our time. Emerging from the human psyche and showing characteristics of abstract expressionism, minimalism and Russian constructivism, graffiti removal has secured its place in the history of modern art while being created by artists who are unconscious of their artistic achievements.”
