Social Media for Urban Artists
A talk by Good Guy Boris (The Grifters Journal)
Curated by MU as part of the Emoves festival
Please RSVP via register button!
Good Guy Boris
is an entrepreneur, director, visual artist and creator of The Grifters. His career started with photography in early teenage years, when he was shooting what he explains as: ‘The wrong people at the right time’.
The Grifters is the best thing that ever happened to internet graffiti media. It's a carefully curated daily feed, gathered from a select pool of top notch writers and photographers, including an assortment of the world’s most controversial artists, that work together to distribute original and exclusive content. They squeeze the juice out of the cliches of graffiti with their sharp and ironic type of humor. Using Social Media and the Internet as a successful tool for 'getting up'.
Having a platform showing this grey area between art and vandalism resulted in an imprisonment in 2014, and Boris spend 4 months in the largest European prison. It is the second time Boris speaks publicly about his experiences and how social media and internet played a huge roll in his success.
It's a free event, but please rsvp via register button if you want the be sure you have a seat!
