Nieves Launches App

We are huge fans Nieves. Since 2001 the independent Swiss publisher has  collaborated with an eclectic mix of talent, releasing a consistently interesting and high quality array of limited artist zines and books. Now, Nieves goes mobile with the launch of an iPhone/iPad app. Though initially excited over the potential to have on-the-go access to their entire back catalog and out of print publications, we were quickly disillusioned. While the application itself is free to download, digital zines wil run you .99¢ a pop, making this pretty worthless unless you plan on shelling out enough money to build up a useful archive. It also seems to run contrary to the very aesthetic and mission Nieves has been championing for the past decade. Oh well. We still love you Nieves.

Here We Go Again :: Fairey Preps for NYC

Out with the old, in with the new. After a bit of neglect, I suppose now is as good a time as any for me to pick up on posting again. We’ll see how it goes.

Shepard Fairey and co. have descended on New York City in preparation for the artist’s much talked about upcoming show at the soon-defunct Deitch Projects. Word is Fairey is looking for anyone who can offer up walls, and with an opening reception scheduled for May 1, we expect the Obey crew to have plenty of time to make their presence know.

A temporary Obey Pop Up Shop will be open April 30th – May 16, and promises a full line of items from the clothing label as well as “many surprises not to be missed.”

Check out our images of Fairey working earlier today on the beginnings of this new Houston Street piece (which replaces Os Gemeos’ mural), as well as studio shots (via Obey) of the crew prepping materials for both the gallery exhibit and store.
