Back in July, Kidult kicked off the “EXSTINCTOR” project where the art world’s vigilante hid 10 individually numbered sculptures around the globe as a way to encourage curiosity within society’s encapsulating walls. With the seventh piece appearing in London this past week, the French artist previews a short video titled “No Gallery, No Master.” On its official website, we’re told “The ‘Exstinctor’ propaganda project only aims at destroying the notion of commodity. Just like graffiti, my work is public, and not private. NoGalleryNoMaster was created so that we can choose and select how my work is sold and distributed, in accordance with very specific criteria.” Below that description Kidult asks that you contact him with certain information like your name and profession. Though he doesn’t mention as to why, he may be alluding to the fact that his followers will aid him in deciding how and where his work will be sold. – Hypebeast
“Elusive describes the constant struggle that every one of us goes through as an experience of the human being to define the meaning of life. For all of us, life is an ongoing search for definition, a definition that we seek to live a meaningful life. This ongoing search is what we call The Constant Chase, a theme that is found throughout the Elusive journey since the beginning. A lot of our designs and taglines speak to the curiosity that lives in all of us. The human race is such a vast pool of experiences and we all walk our own paths. Elusive speaks to all paths. No matter what life that you choose to live, all of our paths merge at one point or another. It’s what we choose to do at these intersections determines the terrain on the walk of life.” Click HERE to take a closer look at the entire ELUSIVE line available on Cloutonline.com. SHOP NOW.

These would go good with my Alexander Wang iPad case! “Featuring Wang’s signature matte black and pale gold color palette, the Beats Pill Speaker and in-ear Beats Urbeats Earbuds extend the Alexander Wang x Beats by Dre experience to those who crave a more lightweight listening experience than the Studio set or want to share the music with others. The full series is set to drop December 16 at the Beats online store and at Alexander Wang online.” -via Hypebeast
With well over five million views and counting, it’s safe to say that you’ve seen the latest video from SOFLES – ‘LIMITLESS’. Shot and cut by the incredible Selina Miles with the help of TREAS, QUENCH and FINTAN MAGEE they’ve set the bar at an almost unreachable height – which makes for incredible viewing. If you’ve been living under a rock or experiencing technical difficulties with your internet, it’s best you view it now and get on top of the rock.
Any great video release should be coupled with a fitting launch party. To celebrate the mammoth task of putting this thing together, SOFLES held an exhibition at Jugglers Art Space in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley. A crowd of eager heads gathered to see some of his recent work (along with ‘Limitless’ co-star @drapl who was exhibiting upstairs) and of course to lay eyes on ‘LIMITLESS’ before the masses. – IRONLAK
A$AP Mob brings back ’90s nostalgia with the Nas-inspired record and video for “Trillmatic” featuring A$AP Nast and Method Man. The hip-hop crew including A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg all make appearances in the accompanying clip, which was shot at Castle Hill Houses in the Bronx.
“The ’90s was the best era for hip-hop, hands down,” said Rocky during his appearance on “106 & Park.” “That’s what we’re just trying to bring back.”
The song will appear on A$AP Mob’s upcoming studio album, due March 4. – RAP UP
