Assembly Line: The Art of The Junks Collective

 Assembly Line
The Art of  The Junks Collective

The Junks Collective was established by the pioneers of graffiti/street art in Cebu known as the Ubec Crew as a way to find different outlets in their artistic production aside from graffiti and street art. The group ventures in various kinds of art forms as way to sustain their daily needs and to fund the luxurious and expensive hobby of street art and also a way of extending their crafts into other fields of art like gallery exhibitions, tattoo, graphic design, prints, music etc. The group marked their first line in the indoor exhibitions when they joined the Visayas Bienniale last 2010, the Art Triviata in contemporary art gallery and Cebu-Manila art exhibition.

For 2011 there was a hiatus in the groups collaborative works when some of its members became successful as a solo artists. This year they get back on track as a team when they had their group exhibition last July entitled “The Fuck you Show”

This time “Assembly Line” exhibition got their inspiration from a factory type of production as their individual styles and artworks are combined to create an aesthetically unified piece. As a graffiti artists Adrenaline is a vital ingredient to their artistic production, the group is given a 4 day period from September 27-30 to finish the artworks but not on their normal collaborative space(Junk Shop 2008-2011,Junk Studio 2008-present) but inside JCentre Mall. Public viewing starts on September 30, 2012 with live painting. Exhibition is until November 30, 2012 at the second level Jcentre Mall in Mandaue.

The proceeds of the exhibition will go to Streetkonects's Artists' Support and Alliance Programe, a funding project by Streetkonect to help street artists continue their craft.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone

Wrap-Up Week-End

Garapata in Bacolod . Many artists from all over the archipelago went to Bacolod last Nov. 13-16, 2014 to participate for the Viva Excon 2014.  The art event is more of a traditional art event rather  than a "primary flight-ish" or !ha? but it didn't  stop street artists to do what they do best. Paint Jam by Soika, Buen Abrigo and    Cori Franchesca Co in Bacolod  Garapata Stop Over in Cebu. He painted with cebuano local street artists, Soika (a Viva Excon Participant), WR, Bart and CrazyMaggot. Free Anting-Anting . Sprouting in Talamban, Cebu City. Really nice to see street art in Cebu making a comeback with new talents. I thought the difference between Cebu and Manila is that the former ceased to produce new talents while the latter had an endless supply. I was wrong! Yummy in Busay. Yummy is Bart's younger brother. He is quite unique in Cebu, and has a distinct inking style. Dr. Karayom for ESC Project Escol
