Taking a Leap

From the beginning, Streetkonect has blogged pictures of street art and graffiti proliferating in the Philippine streets and in other streets in the world. We find satisfaction in what we do and joy in what we see. Our words are few; we rely mostly on images to show that there is a creative and artistic movement in the streets around the world, in our streets; that the streets are viable venues for creativity to flourish and to start discourses. The creative movement in the streets did not start with this blog, but we became part of the movement and has helped it by keeping a visual blog of the developments and setbacks of working or playing creatively in the streets. Last Feb. 9, we received an email from Edsel Yu Chua, a young Filipino studying Anthropology in the University of British Columbia Canada. Here is the entire text: Kamusta? Ako si Edsel Yu Chua isang Anthropology Student sa University of British Columbia Canada. Nag susulat ako dahil gusto kong magpasalamat sa

SANDATA AKO NI LIRIO (I AM LIRIO'S WEAPON)

Lee Salvador pays tribute to his brother, sound artist Lirio Salvador who's still in the hospital recovering from injuries after being hit-and-run in front of Espasyo Siningdikato , a creative space he established with fellow artists in Dasmariñas, Cavite. Lirio Salvador is best known for his assemblage art of musical instruments known as Sandata (Weapon). He's an influential figure in the experimental Philippine music scene and has played solo or with his band Elemento.  After his accident, Lirio lapsed into a coma for weeks and underwent a brain surgery. He is slowly but steadily recovering. Friends and family have been watching over the progress of Lirio's condition and have organized several fundraisers to help with his hospital bills. "Sandata Ako Ni  Lirio" (I Am Lirio's Weapon) was coined not only as a catchphrase but as a pledge and declaration among his friends, family and other concerned individuals to become Lirio's human instument and supp

Space Invader in San Diego

Kim Castillo sent this photo of a space invader on a building in Hillcrest, San Diego. She said that according to a local, the piece was done by the French artist's cousin living in San Diego. The local further reports that "space-invading" is a family thing. The family, spread out across the States, does the same tag. How's that for an urban legend? Could it have been Mr. Brainwash? Speculations here.
