Deevaar, documentary by KolahStudio is Finally ready... it will be on screening in Germany in some academic venues now.

...With the development of Graffiti and Street-Art in Iran and gradually in the Middle Eastern countries during the last decade and with the growth of the Street Art Market on the one hand and the awareness of the Iranian government of this Phenomenon on the other hand , which caused some life threatening problems for Me and some close friends of mine, I thought to make a video documentary about us.
For more info and the Trailer please check this link :
Deevaar -Graffiti in Iran

Deevaar is an Iranian Insider Graffiti Documentary aiming to show the real prospective of what the graffiti scene in Iran is like.

Ghalamdar New calligraffitis From Iran


Ghalamdar is an Iranian street artist who practices a combination of graffiti and traditional lettering on walls. He is inspired by endemic calligraphic styles and miniature paintings (negargari) that have been the primary subjects of 20th century modernist art. Ghalamdar began his graffiti career in 2009, coming into contact with local artists and their works. From 2011 to 2014, he teamed up with the Elf Crew, one of the first groups of graffiti to operate in Iran since late 2006. Ghalamdar’s distinctive style has been featured as part of their collective, accompanying the pictorial features of Blind and Ali Fj-one with Persian-inspired calligraphy. Ghalamdar’s work is very influenced by A1one who is a pioneer in Iranian graffiti scene ,but still alot to mention as an original outcome.

Bahrain: Guinness World Record


Bahrain: Guinness World Record arrived in the Kingdom of Bahrain for the 24, 716 square feet of 3D anamorphic painting, conceived by the New Horizon School (NHS) in association with 3D artist Limnesh Augustine. The previous record of 12505.52 square feet held by 3D Joe and Max was surpassed by the team on February 12, 2012 at the NHS Carnival hosted by the Parent Teacher Association. The Guinness World Record (GWR) office in UK verified and certified the attempt as the new world record on March 16, 2012.

It took 120 artists, 50 volunteers and their combined efforts lasting four hours to complete the record breaking 3D canvas with perfection. The artwork has been titled 'Piece 4 Peace' and conveys the message: "Every drop makes the ocean; similarly various elements and various corners formulate peace, which is the desire of every individual and nation. Piece 4 Peace is the representation of the reality and awareness that when various pieces from the four corners are brought together in harmony, then it will for sure, give birth to peace."

Goo Interviews Ganzeer From Egypt


GOO:Would you please talk a little bit about your self?Where Do you live and work? and how often are you working?
Ganzeer: I live and work, for the most part, in Cairo, Egypt. I work everyday, but not in the form of street art. Depending on the subject matter and the idea I have in relation to it, I will pick a medium/venue to work in. Sometimes it'll be a wall, other times it'll be the internet, sometimes it'll be a drawing, other times writing, and for example, in the case of this week: surveying.

GOO:Do you have access to spray paint in Egypt?

Ganzeer: Sure. It's not very good spray-paint, nor is it designed to create sophisticated pieces of artwork with.

GOO:What do you use for your street art? Stencil/Graffiti style/Stickers/Pasteups?
Ganzeer: Whatever I can to get my idea across. So far, I've come to use stencils, stickers, and in one particular case, garbage bags.

GOO:Who or What are your inspirations?
Ganzeer: The work of other artists is of course inspirational. I'm a big comicbook buff, so comix have a big influence on me. But the greatest inspiration of all is life.

GOO:What do you think about recent changes in Egyptian Governmental systems?is it good or bad for you as an Artist?
Ganzeer: It's a little bit of both. It's good that the Egyptian people have risen in mass to topple the system, but changes in the system so far are unfortunately not the kind of changes we fought for, even though the government is trying to convince people that it is, using the media, and a lot of people are buying into the government's crap. As an artist, it's an opportunity to be pro-active and use one's tools for a passionate cause.

GOO:Do you do legal or illegal Street Art?
Ganzeer: I guess it would be considered illegal.

GOO:Are You aware of Graffiti scene in Middleeast? Tehran,Beirut,Dubai,etc.does it have any impact on you at all?
Ganzeer: Honestly, man, none whatsoever. Would love to travel across the Arab world more and experience it, and its people, first hand. And maybe get a chance to do a few public interventions here and there.

GOO:Are there Any other StreetArt Workers ,there in Egypt?
Ganzeer: Some of the most prominent ones in recent months, in my opinion, are Keiser, Adham Bakry, El Teneen, and Sad Panda.

GOO: Any thing you like to say?
Ganzeer: Thanks for the opportunity, and great blog, man!
