Art I like 8 by Florent Vial

  1. Bob Gibson (The London Police) 1977. Born Chelmsford, England. 
Bob Gibson has always been fascinated by big cities and architecture. Growing up, he spent some formative time in America. Detroit, New York, San Fransisco and Chicago left a lasting impression. Road trips were hugely influential. “I liked the lines of cars, street lamps and telegraph poles, long straight roads, cruise control, emptiness, truck stops, petrol stations, fast-food, bridges, and good music on the stereo. Then, after hours of mo- notonous driving, a glimpse of the city skyline up ahead, and the thrill of entering the towering metropolis; orderly, magical, intimidating, excit- ing and immense. A living machine, a feast for the senses.” Fueled by that imagery, he has been making art about it ever since. Whether it's a drawing, a piece of writing, a sculpture or an animation, Bob is constantly inventing fictional landscapes and scenarios that play on the power and allure of the city. Bob studied sculpure at the Norwich School of Art in the east of England and went on to be a founding member of The London Police street art collec- tive, exhibiting work worldwide between 1999 and 2004. After a brief pause and a change in direction Bob rejoined the collective in 2005 with his new concept of cityscapes.

Bob currently resides in Amsterdam.

  13. The visual codes used by Shepard Fairey, aka Obey Giant, are worthy of those of Stalinist pro- paganda, but here they highlight the mecha- nisms of advertising propaganda which invade public space. Currently based in Los Angeles, Fairey's rising success has helped transform his once homemade Xerox style into lush multi- colored screen prints.
