Escif, who showed at FIFTY24SF Gallery with San in the summer of 2011, has been down in Mexico City for All City Canvas, and of course, is painting some politically-charged works. This huge public piece was painting on the side of the famous Chihuahua building, the site of the TLATELOLCO Massacre of 1968, where over 300 students and protestors were murdered, 10 days before the Olympics, by the Army… this piece is a subtle nod to that event.

Vive La Resistance by Escif

af6cf18e5c05x340.jpg Vive La Resistance by Escif piece niort nazis left the base heavy on world headlines France flash video escif citrus report built between base art allied

Escif, who showed at FIFTY24SF Gallery this past summer with fellow Spanish artist, San, just completed this piece last month while in Niort, France. The area that Escif painted the piece is heavy on World War II history, and one of the last areas of Allied vs. Nazi battles.

Escif wrote: “The gun battery was named Karola and was built between 1942 and 1944 by the German navy. On 12 September 1944, the Allies had surrounded the entire fort and a long siege began. The base was defended by 20,000 German soldiers and the siege continued until the capitulation. During this time, all supplies to the base was provided by u-boats.

The third May 1945 the last u-boat (U-255) arrived with fuel and supplies to the besieged base. It left the base again two days later and the eighth May the German garrison surrendered to the Allies.”

Jaybo in Berlin, going Jordan, going upside down… for some reason, we really like this. He says about his piece:

” the jordan
in the terminate thing. crashing , wings trashing.
flesh ripping, squashing , pigeon gasping
feeling trapped in. Laughing! still eyes flashing
Heroes dead collapsing,
is consume a religion , you asking
thoughts from my piegeonhole.”.. Jaybo

We have never been huge Neck Face fans, but we definitely like the Lady Gaga reference in this piece, and we kind of feel like we are learning to enjoy his work a bit. Neck Face is on the cover of the new September 2011 issue of Juxtapoz, and we are excited to see Kaput in there. Good graffiti stuff from Vancouver right there.
