Bikes vs. Cars

Gridlock is wasting people's time, polluting the air and contributing to climate change. Bikes vs. Cars launches the 2015 Festival focus on Changing Cities. From award-winning director and journalist Fredrik Gertten (BANANAS!*, Big Boys Gone Bananas!*) and executive producer Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car?, Revenge of the Electric Car), the film investigates the daily global spectacle of bikes and traffic.

Activists and cities around the world are moving towards two-wheels. But will the economic powers allow it? From the crusades of bike activists in car-centric Sao Paulo and Los Angeles, to the city of Copenhagen where forty percent commute daily by bike, Bikes vs. Cars considers the possible revolutionary changes to our cities if we made room for bicyclists.

DISCUSSION WITH:
- Fredrik Gertten, director (via Skype)
- Chris Paine, executive producer (in person)
- Dan Koeppel, bike activist and film's subject (in person).

6/15/2015 - 5Pointz Turns -Troubled High School NYC




I was honored to be asked to paint a wall for this Positive Project while i was in NYC last week, lead by: Meres One & Marie from 5 Pointz NYC, working with the August Martin High School in Jamaica, Queens!  Grand Opening will be in June 12th i believe! "The Pen is Mighter then the Sword" Griffin One.

5Pointz Turns Troubled High School Into NYC’s Unlikeliest Graffiti Mecca

Over the weekend, the August Martin High School in Jamaica, Queens was transformed into a massive graffiti gallery when over 100 artists such as MERES, CUBA, CYCLE, JERMS, Phetus, POET, YES1, CLAW, Cernesto, KING BEE, Plasma Slug, T-KID, AMUZE, SHIRO, GRIFFIN, SLOKE & so many others descended on the massive building and spray painted their work directly on the walls of the facility’s cavernous hallways. Another 30 or so will be returning this weekend. Unlike most graffiti meccas, which emerge from abandoned buildings and decrepit ruins, the school is still active. In fact, its administration and student body actively sought out the urban artists.
