This weekend New York Times writer Jasper Rees broke the street art story of the year. The story, which has prompted a wildfire rash of blog postings, revolves around “The Underbelly Project.” Street artists Workhorse and PAC curated a selection of some 150 international street artists, inviting each to paint a mural in one night on the walls of an unidentified, unfinished abandoned subway station four stories underground. The exhibition was opened to a select group of journalists and bloggers for one night, and then closed forever, when the gorilla curators destroyed the entrance. The list of artists is incredible: Dan Witz, Faile, Swoon, Anthony Lister and Jeff Soto to name just a few. More details on Vandalog.
