Off The Shelf

Documenting Street Art and Graffiti 
Issue 23

VNA Issue 23, is one of the best magazines from the guys to date...

Yep they really hit this one outta the ball park with this issue. Totally crammed full of excellent pics, exceptional dialogue and no time to get board cause there is always something more exciting on the next page. In fact when we eventually got to the last page we had no hesitation in starting at the beginning and review with refreshed eyes what we had just witnessed... a keeper and a true eye candy publication if we ever saw one!

What lies inside:
Days x Peque
Morning Breath
Tom French
Michael Sieben
Agostino Iacurci
Moose and Yeti
... also city graff shots from London, Istanbul and San Diego.

We leave you with a flash quote from Agostino Iacurci, "I try to create an integrated image that takes into account the colours of the surrounding environment, even if my messages don't have a direct relationship with the place".

Image time...

Street Scene... Coffee

RDC in Da Coffee House

If you have been looking in on the weby than you will know that we have numerous paintings for sale in coffee shops in Derby and Nottingham, UK. Now, there is a reason for that and that reason is the love of coffee. A lot of the staff here at RDC meet up to do interviews, reviews or just break out the sketch pad and come up with some new designs at our locals.

If you have satellite or cable television you may have heard of the series 'Dangerous Grounds', about an American named Todd Carmichael. He owns a coffee company called La Colombe and travels to isolated villages and mountain forests in search of a flavourful and rare coffee beans. An exciting and interesting watch, with the next series coming out soon!

Over the next few week we will be looking at coffee and how it's produced, check out some Coffee Houses and what they are serving, also tell you what we are savouring and throwing down our throats at the moment... Keep Um Peeled☋

InSideOut - Street Art in Ireland
Authors: Rua Meegan and Lauren Teeling
Publisher: Visual feast Productions

It was great to get our hands on this publication as we have never explored the Irish Graffiti Scene... so here goes!

A publication full of cool pics and interesting information, this book that exposes the Irish Scene of which we know little about. A vibrant selection of 21 artists between the covers - some we recognise and some we don't but all have styles which are worth checking out, with:
Conor Harrington
D Face
Katie Holten
Little Man
to name a featured handful.

Description from the book:
InSideOut represents a snapshot of street art in Ireland over a two year period. It show cases images that dot both the urban and rural landscape in spray paint, stencils, paste-ups, tiling and murals by both Irish and International street artists. These street art pieces represent a redefinition of what art can be and the spaces within which they exist.
The Irish street art scene has evolved greatly over the past few years with the emergence of new home grown talent and an influx of International artist who utilise the Irish landscape as a frame for their work. It is the most honest of art forms, accessible to all, offering immediate impact and without the admission fee.

So you see, there is loads of positives about this book and now the opportunity to look inside...
