Intro(spect) on Something Must Break
by Jino De Castro
Life has a rhythm. An ebb and flow. Inhalation and exhalation. Birth. Death. On Friday, June 1, 2012, EYEONE debuted Something Must Break (pictured above), an installation composed of branch fragments, spray paint, staples, and a rusted spray can housing a once living plant.
A contextual understanding of EYEONE's artistic canon deepens the viewer's appreciation for Something Must Break. "His work is rooted in graffiti, printmaking, photography, and punk rock. Often focusing on isolated objects and individuals, his art reflects on themes of alienation, survival, melancholy, resistance, and the myriad experiences encountered while navigating the chaos of contemporary urban environments."
EYEONE is more known for his graff work. Stroll down Sunset or Beverly Boulevard, or visit Orange 20 off of Melrose, and sure enough you've been exposed to his signature Zapatista character. His current submission to our gallery offers another perspective on his skill, playfulness, and experience as an artist.
Something Must Break transforms medium into subject, explores the intricacies of decay and deterioration, and is just out right different from what EYEONE is typically known for. Ultimately, he is challenging the audience to accept that all things live and that all things die. That even death possesses grace, integrity and beauty; and that it is something to not be feared, but appreciated.
But hey, that's just me. I invite you to come and formulate your own interpretation...

MONOKROME: World-class Graffiti Design in Black and White
Compiled by Robert "Cute" Whitelock | Designed by Aaron Munday
I received my copy of MONOKROME in the post yesterday and have been reading it cover to cover since. The book more that delivers on its title, presenting graff-related illustration, graphic design, 3D modeling, and lettering. One of the things that sets this book apart from most on the subject is the insightful and thorough editorial content: each person's work is accompanied by text describing their background, influences, and approach. The design of the book itself is on point and really highlights the inherent qualities of working in black and white. I would definitely recommend adding this one to your collection. Artists included in this volume include NASH & DOES, REMI/ROUGH, HUSH, ASKER, ITCH, INKFETISH, KILLER GERBIL, DENZ, KOFIE, INKIE, BENONE, SYSTEM, and many more. [Like EYEONE -ed.]
From the book's website: ""MONOKROME brings together writers from all four corners of the globe with different styles, different views and different periods of time spent in graffiti. It creates an arena that is compelling for the veteran graffiti writer, the newcomer and the outsider alike... You'll see what you don't normally see; the work that happens before it gets to the wall, the work that builds upon what went before it, the work that bridges the gap between the old and the new. All in black and white..."
