Extension of TAG @ Grand Palais

If you haven't seen it, you have one more week for the TAG exhibition @ Grand Palais.

Mike Giant & Dalek @ Galerie Magda Danysz

The Magda Danysz gallery has two major artists from the street art culture who have developed a style of their own : Dalek and Mike Giant. Dalek is one of the artists who as Shepard Fairey, Dave Kinsey, and Twist (aka Barry McGee) is taking the old school styles of graffiti and while exposing the work to whole new audiences at the same time.
Mike Giant has added the whole tattoo culture to his graffiti background. He started writing in 1989. Early on, he was influenced by his graffiti partners a lot, as well as by writers like Twist, Rem, and KR. A habit he has kept from his graffiti years as now, Mike Giant uses words as the building blocks of language.

Bell & Ross Instrument BR01 Airborne

Bell & Ross pay homage to the fighter pilots of the Second World War with the unveiling of their BR01 Airborne timepiece. The BR 01 Airborne reinvents the notion of the talisman, and personifies the very spirit of these outstanding men. It is a genuine tribute to the noblest of military values as well as to the bravery of soldiers who face death on a daily basis to defend their country.” The watch face in a matte black finish is definitely one of a kind with dagger-hands and a light-up back panel.

Juice Box

Japan has the best packaging by far. Here is a great example, designed by Naoto Fukasawa
