Artist Plug: János Kőrös

Enter the CenterDetailDark ThougtsWho Are You...Center of the StormFriend of the Night

Did you know they have sketchbooks in Hungary? And that they have pens too?!?! János Kőrös knows this dirty little secret and exploits it like a fat kid in a cake factory (there haven’t been enough 50 Cent references in the world lately). Anyway, these are just a few examples of some amazing ink he’s putting down in his moleskines. Check his page out for more.


José Parlá/Brooklyn: Win/Win


Via Manuel Bello at ArrestedMotion

It’s always great to see good things happen for amazing artists and all around good guys. With that, cheers to José Parlá and the Barclays Center on the new 10 ft. x 70 ft. (i.e. LARGE) mural, Diary of Brooklyn, just released over the weekend. Brooklyn is lucky to have such an epic artist that calls it home.

Check out more about the story behind the mural and many more detailed photos @ArrestedMotion.
And of course, José Parlá.
