Keepin Up With...Dave The Chimp

Concrete Bowl


spent the last week building a concrete bowl that I designed in the
heart of Kreuzberg with Radio pro Lennie Burmeister, members of the
Mischief Skateboards team, dudes from Search & Destroy skate shop, and
random locals. I guess it's a "skateable sculpture", and it's called "Papa und Ich".
we tried a new technique, building with blocks of polystyrene from the
recycling depot, pouring the concrete on top. There's a weight
restriction at the site we built it, due to a water tank underneath,
but we knew we wanted to build with concrete so Lennie had the polystyrene idea.
it's been raining non-stop since we finished building (which is
actually good for the concrete, chemical reactions and all that) but
we hope the sun will come out in the next few days as it needs to dry
so we can epoxy the edges so it doesn't get destroyed too quick under an onslaught of Indy's!
the bowl will be ready to skate on Friday 5th August, when we'll have
an opening party, and it will stay until the end of October, when it
will be smashed apart and dragged away.
book your flight to Berlin now!

Juxtapoz - Erotica
Author: Juxapoz Magazine
Publisher: Gingko Press

This book does what it says in the title.

Juxtapoz is a US magazine dear to our hearts.
Every now and then they decide to put out a hard back book, after filing away a collection of themed material in their data banks - till bursting point. With past titles like Tattoo, Dark Arts, Car Culture, Poster Art and a few more.

For title titillation this one is likely to make your mouth water, with full colour illustrations from 22 artists, who include:
Whitney Lee
Rockin' jellybean
Audrey Kawasaki
Mimi S.
Aaron Nagel... we could go on, but won't☋

Full of discrete and not so discrete illustrations of tits and bums, the only down side we can see is for those of you who crave the male form, well your dang outta luck!

Let's explore between the covers...

No need to keep it under lock and key - it's art.

The Studio & Streets 2004 - 2010
Author: Everfresh Studio
Publisher: The Miegunyah Press

Wow, this is what we're talkin about - this book, full to the bindings with graffiti photos. A pure delight for lovers of full and intense colour images.

Everfresh Studios is an explosive hub of creation and activity, inconspicuously situated in Melbourne, Australia's inner - city suburb of Collingwood.
Behind an unmarked factory door, artists find inspiration to produce their now internationally renowned work for street and exhibitions alike.

This title with its ace photography, gives a rare insight into this studio's somewhat underground and exclusive world of this artistic community.

Everfresh Artists include:
The Tooth
