Meet a young street artist who has been getting up quite a bit lately in Los Angeles: Phil Lumbang. His work carries a simple message and the idea of social change.
Phil first got his start as an intern for Shepard Fairey at Studio Number One and quickly worked his way up the ranks to design assistant. Now, as he finds his style and confidence working outdoors, he has begun a great career as a print-maker and painter.
Lund’s Corner Jesus Draws a Crowd
By Steve Urbon / Standard-Times senior correspondent
Thursday, March 26, 2009 -
NEW BEDFORD — Tears welled up in Angela Sampaio’s eyes as she beheld the Lund’s Corner Jesus through her car windshield Wednesday, reports today’s Standard-Times.
"I am really, really, really moved by this," she said. And she wanted reassurance that the photographs of this Jesus are on the Internet. "This will be seen all over the world," she said.
She had plenty of company there in the parking lot of Premier Video, where the slightly larger-than-life depiction of the Saviour appeared on the wall sometime last weekend. In a one-hour span around noon Wednesday, at least 35 people walked or drove to the lot just to see the figure that is pasted to the white brick.
They came from miles around. They were young and old, sometimes three generations of a family in a car. There were blue-collar workers with their buddies, retirees, teenagers. They brought cameras and took pictures of each other near the figure of Christ. Some brought flowers, real and artificial, and some brought candles that flickered in their jars in the spring breeze.
(Note: Our friend tells us - "best pizza in that area is in that building, so if anyone wants to see the miracle, stop by and get a Ray's pie!")

This past weekend, the Sour Grapes Crew went to The University of North Texas for a special graffiti event. We were invited to paint a temporary wall that the university had built just for us. It was a perfect day for painting in a chill campus environment surrounded by cool people. We had a great time doing this event in conjunction with the "Graff, Tag and Bomb: The Influence of Graffiti" exhibition, which includes some of Dallas dope graffiti artist. Make sure to check out the art show and wall at UNT. This exhibition will run until march 28, 2009.

That is correct! You're not dreaming, and this flyer is not a fake one. The team from Artifacts, you know, the people who brought you History In the Making last year? Well they are keeping their promise and are bringing it back one more time. I've been told by Artifacts that they are doubling up the wall space and the b-boy battles are gonna be sick! So make sure to come out and support since part of the proceeds will go to the Boys & Girls Club of America.
For more info go to www.myspace.com/artifactsgrafhouse or click on the flyer.
