Jetsonorama, Yote, Joerael ~ Gray Mountain

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

Far up north, in parts of Arizona where you’d least expect, is some incredible work from Jetsonorama, Yote, and Joerael Julian Elliot. It would be a shame if PhoenixTaco only aspired to show you art from down here in our air conditioned metropolis, so here is a collaboration between these artists in Gray Mountain, Coconino County.

Bienvenidos Campaign ~ Yote

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

If you paid any attention to campaign signs for the elections last fall, you may have noticed one looking a bit out of place. That was the work of Arizona street artist Yote and his “Bienvenidos” state flag design that snuck into the political advertisements across the state leading up to November 2nd.  On the Bienvenidos Campaign website, he writes this:

By juxtaposing the Arizona state flag with the word “Bienvenidos,” I hope to spread a positive and affirming message throughout our communities [. . .] My intention is that the “Bienvenidos” symbol will spread throughout the state to be both a visible resistance to laws like 1070 and a representation of the hope for safer communities in the state of Arizona and beyond

OBEY Paste Tagged ~ Tempe

Monday, March 14th, 2011

The OBEY paste on the back of what was formerly 3 Roots Cafe was tagged, only a week after it had originally gone up. Of course, many people have expressed disbelief and anger over it, but for others– was it really that surprising? Nothing is sacred.
