Mr. Rushmore has a cool haircut. He likes his street art. And like most of the artists, he works for free. I think we have ourselves a wonderkind cause the dude is twenty and VANDALOG is running shit.
TRA: So how was the flight back to London? Were you stuck in a middle seat? RJ: Not bad…got an aisle seat. Delta sucks a lot less than people say. TRA: Ha. So how did Vandalog come about? What was the inspiration other than your obvious love of art?
RJ: I started Vandalog for two main reasons: 1. So my dad would only need to read one art blog. He and I love a lot of the same art, but he wouldn’t have time to read a bunch of blogs to try and keep up to date on everything. So with Vandalog, he can (hopefully) read about everything that would interest him.
2. I didn’t get the Editor-in-chief position at my high school newspaper and it was my senior year, so I figured I’d half-ass the position I did have on the paper and start a blog.
Australian street artist Stormie Mills has a new show going on at Linton & Kay Contemporary entitled Gathering. The nearly sold out show has some really incredible work by the artist. Here are just some pictures from the exhibit.
