#378 Flag of failure – A new minimal geometric composition each day
Special Delivery presented by Endless Canvas went off last Saturday night in Berkeley. Over 3000 people rolled out to peep the four story abandoned ink factory filled with 100 new murals from some of the Bay’s Finest Graffiti Writers and Street Artists. Non-stop live hip-hop on the first story was cracking along with fresh pieces from BVRS and Jaut, while the second story featured death defying work from Swampy and Chert, an Oakland African Village installation by Dead Eyes, a Coyote Cartoon Graffiti church and some clean SF Funk from Sway, S8n, Jeans, and The Fresh Prince.
The third floor was an insane DJ Dance party from Miggy Stardust in front of a classic Pemex burner. Ras Terms, Safety First, Oddfelllow, Edith, and Gats also came correct as always. If one were strong and brave enough to climb to the roof, you would know it was cracking up there as well. Big ups to Endless Canvas for putting it all together. It was amazing to see so many generations, and people of such diverse backgrounds all celebrating the art together with a positive vibe and getting their groove on. It was definitely a night that will live on in Bay Area Art History. -Michael Kershnar

Why don’t I live in California?
WHO IS THIS? I think I’m dying. He is perfect.
Little baby’s ice cream, what on earth. This is horrifying.

This is great. Beer forever.
Fireflies on the Water (2002), by Yayoi Kusama.
Fireflies on the Water is an installation made of 150 lights, mirrors and water. It offers an out-of-this-world experience from the confines of a modest room paneled with mirrors and adorned with 150 tiny beads of light deliberately suspended throughout the compact space. Upon entering the room, there’s an illusionary effect that gives the impression of infinite space reflected on all sides and in the two inches of water that flows below.
I need to experience this immediately.

Spread the word!
Story of my life.
Still needs some work, but here it is for the most part.
I’ll have an etsy up soon!
