Following the attacks on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, the #2 pencil has become a familiar symbol of freedom against those who use violence to oppose it. Artists around the world have portrayed the pencil in illustrations and cartoons as a demonstration of defiance against violence and also of their continued support for creative freedoms. The pencil has been used in political protests, vigils and tributes across the globe.

“BARBES BASKETBALL” for Pigalle Paris

A beautifully shot basketball short by Pigalle Paris, something that Nike probably is the only other company could and would do. From Pigalle, “Pigalle Paris has set up the ‘AMATEUR BASKETBALL’ project. The aim of which is to support basketball teams having a strong sporting and social background. For their first initiative Pigalle Paris has chosen their local team Goutte d’Or Basket Ball, from nearby Barbès, to remake their outfits. This team which hasn’t stopped moving up in the rankings now has first class sports equipment as well as a well defined graphic identity. “

One of our favorites, Australian artist Jonathan Zawada, has a new show up at Colette in Paris called Kindered Spirits. The show is a “collection of print works from Zawada that explore the value of the image in a disorienting world where visual culture is defined by an assortment of images out of context.” (via slamxhype)
