Tracksides. Tunnels. Rooftops.

Over the course of five days, JURNE caught up with Selina Miles to explore the neighbourhoods, train tracks and underground tunnels found in Oakland, California.

‘Science-ism’ also offers a glimpse into JURNE’s studio output, illustrating the connection between his work on the white walls of a gallery and the concrete walls of the city.

PUSH | Little Tokyo Mural video

Combining Community Efforts to Create Little Tokyo Mural

Los Angeles, CA (December 8, 2014)  A new mural called, “A New Purpose” by artist PUSH, was finished September 2014 in the Little Tokyo area of Downtown Los Angeles.  The work was crafted by artist, PUSH to bring graffiti art, which is exploding in the Arts District, into the adjacent neighborhood of Little Tokyo. His vision brings a contemporary, abstract vision to the streets of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles native and based graffiti artist, PUSH, is known for his thoughtful graphic-like designs and beautiful use of color. Art Share Los Angeles, a community art center located in the heart of the Arts District collaborated with Known Gallery, an internationally known gallery of The Seventh Letter brand in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles, to bring more public art to the streets of Los Angeles. Property owner, BH Properties graciously donated this wall and supplies to the project. Supaport for this project were also received by Montana Cans, USA.

This 60-foot mural is located at 640 E. 2nd Street between Central and San Pedro Avenues in Little Tokyo. The artwork had to be created between the hours of midnight and 6AM from September 1, 2014 until its completion on September 20, 2014. Crews arrived on site and accessed a large boom that carried the artists up and around the mural. All done in the dead of night.

“It’s the first time we have partnered with Art Share L.A. to bring something unique to our property,” said Steve Jaffe, executive vice president of BH Properties, who owns the building.  “We look forward to exploring other locations in the portfolio that might be good locations for presenting artists’ work.  This property had the perfect location for a wall mural – not only does it enhance the local market but it also really distinguishes our property.”

Residence and long time visitors of the area were awestruck of the steady progress made to the mural. The artwork creates a pop of color with a mixture of strategic lines and strong color blocks that catch everyone’s eyes when they walk or drive by.

The Seventh Letter was founded in 1998 to give writers a voice, forum and respect on a global scale. Their ears are close to the street, and their eyes are still on the walls. From galleries to clothing, it’s the Truth, Loyalty and Royalty.

Art Share Los Angeles, Inc. is a non-profit community arts center is located in the heart of the Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles. The two-story building gives artists access to 14,000 sq. ft. of programmable space including a theater, gallery, studios and classrooms.

“I’ve returned to these pictures of the band many times over the years, and when I’ve done so they take me right back to the time. I still listen to their debut album now and it doesn’t sound dated. In a similar way, these images, though very much of their era, haven’t aged at all. Which reflects how timeless the Sex Pistols were.”
– Dennis Morris

The Bollocks, co-published by Zero+ Publishing and The Seventh Letter, offers an exclusive glimpse into the world of The Sex Pistols. Internationally recognized photographer Dennis Morris visually records both behind-the scenes material and classic stage footage alongside intimate portraits and documents an iconic movement in the history of music with many never-before-seen images.

It was Morris’ photos of Marley that caught the eye of the young Johnny Rotten. Rotten, a massive reggae fan, had long admired Morris’ work and requested that he take the first official shots of the Sex Pistols upon signing to Virgin Records. Morris’ association with the band fitted perfectly in the plan devised by legendary music Svengali, Malcolm McLaren. Morris witnessed the raw beginnings and rise of a group that would eventually become pioneering musicians behind the Punk movement of the late 1970s.

The Sex Pistols soon learned to trust Morris completely, allowing him unrestricted access to their strange and chaotic existence. For a year, Morris trailed the band, taking hundreds of undisputed classic shots of the band. The only photographer to put the Sex Pistols fully at ease in front of the lens, Morris’ work with the band established, their public image and strong lasting identity.

Morris’ images also capture the visceral hysteria of the fans and unforgettable fashions as well as pivotal moments in the band’s history.

Limited to an edition of 200 with over 45 iconic images and two signed prints on Kodak Endura Metallic photo paper by Dennis Morris, The Bollocks, priced at US $ 800.00, provides both an extraordinary view into the intoxicating world of The Sex Pistols as well as a chapter of history charting fashions, music and trends of the 1970s for passionate fans and intrigued onlookers alike.
