MontanaCans X Sneaker Freaker. From fat-laced Clydes in the 70′s, Air Max’s in the 80′s and ZX’s in the 90′s, the bond between graffiti writers and sneakers is undeniable. That’s why we got in touch with the worlds Nr.1 Sneaker Magazine, “Sneaker Freaker”. We asked them to design a limited edition spraycan for us in honour of their magazine and the heritage of sneakers in graffiticulture. The Australian portion of the Sneaker Freaker team chose a classic Infra-Red (or Radiant Red to OG Nike heads) as their fluoro hue of choice. See the pictures that speak for themselves and stay tuned for release information.

THE MODERN THINKER by Aske”
A house perfectly positioned near Frankfurt’s Niederrad station (in Frankfurt Germany), has become a symbol for tolerance. The project in the form of a massive public mural, was conceived by Visual Communications students and football fans to send a message promoting peaceful co-existance. The mural tells the story of a German national soccer league champion and two-time top scorer, Anthony Yeboah who was fiercely discriminated against due to his skin color. The painting process was divided into two steps. First the quote “Wir schämen uns für alle, die gegen uns schreien ” (we feel ashamed of all who scream against us) was painted on the wall. The next step was a portrait of the portrait of the footballer painted transparently over the quote. More also on the projects page.
While WALL\THERAPY heals cities through art, its sister initiative, IMPACT! (IMProving Access to Care by Teleradiology), does its healing by setting up diagnostic imaging sites in developing countries. The connection between art and the medical philanthropy is imagery. Street murals enhance life. Medical X-ray imagery preserves it. Both entities are housed under the Synthesis Collaborative, a 501(c)(3) public charity incorporated in New York State. The organization raises funds to set up teleradiology services within these developing communities and grow a network of volunteer radiologists around the world. These doctors use cloud computing to access images, interpret them and recommend treatment. As a result, afflictions that are commonly misdiagnosed, or missed entirely, are properly diagnosed, saving countless lives. Artists travel to these communities as well, improving life with inspirational murals. See more images after jump.
