What is happening on our landing page?

Web browser as an Art Gallery.

You might be wondering why last August that our main homepage wasn't loading the traditional logo. It was replaced by Lea Valle’s photo slides entitled “nutrition facts”.

Last January it was replaced also with Ernest Dino’s video art “Queen City”.

From the inception of streetkonect we really wanted to use the main homepage not as normal website. Flaunting our logo like a normal blog wasn’t enough.

That is why from the start when we bought the domain the blog was addressed as We tried to update the homepage every now and again however the team's enthusiasm to refurbish the site eventually tuckered out because lack of proper programming

Nine years after the Philippines finally saw a whole lot more technological advancement and the internet became a little bit accessible. Browsers have gained much more power - looking back nine years ago, it was terribly difficult for us to access a page on Internet Explorer from rowdy internet cafes. Now, we can access the browser in our phones, tablet and many other devices at any given moment - well, if we have data.

We are happy about the growth and outcome of street art today. A lot more people appreciate and support the field now. Just like the enthusiasm that we felt during the street art inception in the Philippines, we are excited to witness new forms of art emerging into the scene.

One of the new art forms is the use the web browser as an exhibition space. The browser has become a powerful tool and now that we have collaborators that have software engineering know-how, many future possibilities can be experimented and done. The next web art show we are showcasing CYMKa’s work entitled: “runExecuteCommand”.

The exhibition will run until April 31, 2017. There will be an offline/gallery version of this piece on 856 G Gallery that will also be a part of the Fortuna Circuit Exhibition.

You can visit our shows more often now - everything it is right at your fingertip.

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
