True To Life': Master Paintings at The Herbert

Chunks of nature, utterly raw, thrown onto the canvas and pulsating with life,'is Emil Zola's statement about the Impressionists. It is above the door of a new exhibition, 'True To Life' at The Herbert, Coventry city Museum & Art Gallery, Uk. 'True To Life' celebrates the evolving tradition of figurative painting with past and contemporary classics. If Zola's words were not enough, I was left in no doubt on entering this exhibition that I was in for a sensory visual feast. Major works by Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach, David Bomberg, Robert Lenkiewicz, Nahem Shoa and Desmond Haughton, together with the New British Realists stop you in your tracks. In the present critical climate a show like this feels revolutionary.

Belly of the Beats

The Belly of the Beat from Gasface on Vimeo.

"If it wasn’t for this place, Lord Finesse never would’ve fucked wit Dr.Dre on 2001. A crossroad for all loop diggers and disco fiends. Alphabet City’s A1 Records gets weekly visits from the likes of Pete Rock, DJ Premier, but also LCD soundsystem and many other producers and deejays from all fields. That being said, none of them ever had access to what you’re about to see… Mind the step!" - Gasface

Iron Man 2 Official Trailer HD

There was a sneak preview that was about five minutes or so that sprung up earlier this year, but here is the actual first trailer of the sequel to the ridiculously dope Iron Man flick. Please believe I'll be first in line to see this shit.

Nas Being Arrested

Nas said he was smoking weed 2 hours before being pulled over. The officer arrested him for DUI, yet he looked like he passed all the sobriety tests.

This is exactly why we can't have peace now. NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE. Plain and simple. And they wonder why I'm militant and slightly withdrawn. Because at any moment the Revolution could pop off and I want to be mentally and physically prepared.

I'm glad they dismissed this case. It was plain ignorant racist bullshit.

Beautiful Characters by Mandy Sutcliffe

Here's an illustrator I'm drawing a lot of inspiration from for my my work. Mandy Sutcliffe is a great illustrator that creates delightfully beautiful prints & books featuring children and their friends.

Mady's style has a beautiful new age vintage feel to them, and the illustrations themselves are so charming that it’s hard not to reminisce about your own fond childhood memories. I mean, as a child who hasn’t invaded another country while captaining a pirate ship and scurvy crew of only your best friend and his dog, or gone riding to the local shops on the back of a giant woolly mammoth?

Beautiful in their simplicity and charmingly elegant, you can find out more at or visit Mandy’s Etsy shop here.

Black Scale x Elm Company Telford Beanies

Elm Company recently teamed up with my homies at Black Scale on a new version of Elm’s Telford Beanie. It has a simplistic top notch quality to it. The beanie is featured in two solid colorways, red and black with black brand badging and a button snap closure. You can cop these at the Black Scale Flagship store in S.F.
