TEXAS on VEGGIE OIL (episode 10)
What to do in Texas, big oil country? This is where the Aussies get clever. They buy a diesel van with 2 tanks, get graffiti artists to spray-paint the van, call it the Veggie Mate and decide to run it on straight vegetable oil. In the land of oil and home to the biggest range of fried food in the world, Shaun & Sparky set out from Galveston and head for Austin. They use fast food restaurants as their “gas” station, hook up with Miss Texas and Shaun flips burgers to pay for his veggie fuel. Meanwhile, the RV breaks down in Houston and the crew’s trip maybe over. They can’t use gas either, just biofuels. Just outside of Austin, the Veggie Mate seizes up.
Here’s a pic of the film crew, Shaun & Sparky and the van.
Graff by JESTER, GONZO*247 & COLOR(DTS)
The first show was in Hong Kong, December 2003. It was the first ever customized figures exhibition. In 2004, the show was also shown in Paris, Chicago and Belgium.
I wasn’t into customs at the time and did the framed art piece below.
From the graphics and logos to the culture and style, skateboarding and art go hand in hand! Unfortunately, artwork on skateboards (no matter how dope) isn’t meant to last past the 1st grind, making the art ‘disposable’. Aerosol Warfare is taking that concept and flipping it inside out! This time around, the Art on the board is the focus and not the gnarly tricks you can do with it.
This piece was wood burned onto a longboard.
Once Again, AEROSOL WARFARE has teamed up with Chicken Boy and OneTen Studios to bring you an event beyond compare! Saturday, Sept 21st come out and witness The Good…The Bad…and The Ugly of Graffiti! From the Dirty Grit straight off the streets…to Full Productions. From Homemade Stickers…to All out Campaign Posters! Come out and see the full spectrum of Graff in all it’s glory!
What one sees as Art is what the City usually sees as Vandalism! Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder.
This was a silkscreened piece I made for the Show. There were 4 different prints in all.
I got this review online:
I checked out the Eye of the Beholder” show, and was really impressed. The atmosphere is one of a run down warehouse (which it is). Aerosol Warfare had done an entire wall, and there was a wall to add your own graffiti to. The corner store installation by Chicken Boy and JESTER was really over the top, including Silk Screened images, stickers, graffiti and more. (robot guy) had an interesting T-shirt art experiment, and there was another wall full of photographs. The DJ (NME) was spinning some great music, and everyone had a great time.
Pros: music, street art, friendly
Cons: wet, hot in the summer, no free food
Overall user rating: Highly Recommended
I also designed the T-shirts and flyer:
