The Art of Rebellion IV is Christian Hundertmark‘s most recent compilation.
The first edition originally published in 2003, Art of Rebellion features the broadest possible variety of street art including flyers, stickers, spraycan and stencil art, and a host of interesting hybrids that fall somewhere in between.
Craig Costello was also featured in the previous issue, Art of Rebellion III.
Shantell Martin is an artist who creates with black and white lines, following her stream of consciousness. Her signature lines transform everything into a narrative. Someday We Can is on exhibit at the Albright-Knox through June 25, 2017.
Martin’s work with institutions such as the MIT Media Lab, Autodesk and New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts denote her ongoing inquiry into new models and technologies that are transforming the way art is made and consumed. Eschewing traditional art world norms, Martin’s work purposefully bridges fine art, performance art, technology and commercial work. Her artwork has appeared in the Brooklyn Museum, Museum of the Contemporary African Diaspora, Bata Show Museum and at the prestigious Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York.

Brooklyn, New York – March 22, 2017.
Krink announces WHQ, a book of photographs by Craig Costello produced with the generous support of agnès b. WHQ features portraits of over 50 artists and friends who visited the Krink studio, affectionately referred to as “The WHQ.” It includes a foreword by Stephen Powers. WHQ is a glimpse into a culture of creatives, showcasing their style and personality. Each photograph was made in front of the studio’s door, which became the established set. The door served not only as a static backdrop, but also a colorful, collaborative canvas. Curated by Costello, the door gradually collected the marks left by friends invited to write and draw using Krink markers. The door, now a completed work, will be installed and on view at the agnès b. Galerie Boutique in NYC, opening April 6. Accompanying the installation and release is a new limited edition: WHQ (Wall Vinyl), 2017, ink jet on adhesive vinyl, 83 x 40 inches, edition of 20. A 1:1 representation of the door, WHQ (Wall Vinyl) is a unique edition with a trompe l’oeil effect.
In conjunction, agnès b. and Krink release 3 limited edition t-shirts as part of the Artist’s T-shirt collection, a prestigious, collaborative series established in 1994 and has included artists such as Félix González-Torres, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Harmony Korine. The agnès b. x Krink t-shirts feature designs that are a reflection of the Krink studio, from studio drawings made with Krink markers to original art work by Costello.
A selection of new works on paper by Costello will be exhibited at Galerie Boutique alongside the release of WHQ and collaboration with agnès b. Known for his large-scale, site-specific installations, Costello explores working more contained, limiting himself to the space of his studio and the size of his paper.
Launch event on April 6, 6-9pm at agnès b., Howard St., NYC. Featuring a performance by Boy Harsher; a dark electronic duo producing gritty dance beats infused with ethereal voices, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Open to the public, RSVP here.

José Augusto Amaro Capela, also known as Zezao, started writing graffiti in Sao Paulo in the 90s. He went on to work on walls of sewages, abandoned houses, and deserted alleyways which attracted attention to unusual urban landscapes. In this way, Zezao has created a conversation between the marginal world and the surface world we know.
All works: Zezão, Untitled, 2015, K-60 on canvas, 12 x 16″.
