DSB has been doing more and more with the Free Art Movement in Atl!!
The Free Art Movement (or Free Art Friday (FAF) ) has been very popular in various cities around the US and the world! The Free Art Movement really aligns with the principles we align our group with (the 10 Burning Man Principles). From Radical Self Expression, Radical Inclusion, Decommodification, Civic Responsibility and Communal Effort to Gifting, Participation, Leave no Trace and Immediacy. You can see the Free Art Friday is a movement that is growing quickly!! Atlanta started out doing FAFATL a few years ago, with just a few Artists, but has now gotten to where you can find folks dropping free Art almost any day of the week, though not every day. It just depends on the Artists schedule, really. Plus there must be 100 Artists if not more. Not all of them drop on a regular basis, and others drop Art as soon as they have it made and can find a place to hide it and post a pic on IG or Twitter to create the scavenger hunt that is FAFATL!
DSB has been doing collabs and recently started doing our own pieces in the Free Art Friday Atlanta( FAFATL) community! We started out working with Artist EVEREMAN! If you have not heard of EVEREMAN then you need to check him out! He has been doing this for a decade with his family!! So I guess you could say he started this whole thing! We also brought some of our collabs to Transformus this year, 2014 and gave away about 30+ pieces!!
EVEREMAN had been doing the gifting thing for over a decade here in Atl. He and his son would make stuff after school and then the whole family would go gift it while doing brunch downtown! He let us attend one of his production parties and we were totally hooked! He really made everyone feel welcome and a part of his project!!
We have recently (the last couple of months) started making our own drops with the DSB symbol sprayed onto wood and started out using a stencil made from one of our stickers, and now getting a stencil laser cut for us! The Free Art Movement is thriving in Atlanta and many other cities across the country! You can check out more about FAFATL (Free Art Friday Atlanta) on the link provided!
We are also working on a collab project with many of the Artists involved with FAFATL and hope to do a larger public piece – which will be in another post coming soon! Check out what we have done so far!!
As you have seen before, this was just some of the things we did with our collab with EVEREMAN
