Summer 2014 x @thesnoeman
An appropriate #TBT a quick article on DCEVE’s Canal St. ledge spot in this week’s New York Magazine. It’s from a feature on “The Urban Daredevil” inspired by the recent white flag incident by the German art collective.

DCEVE and SNOEMAN helped design the look of this year’s Fool’s Gold Day Off! The series kicked off yesterday at 50 Kent in Williamsburg with a bunch of artists including French Montana, Bobby Shmurda, Camron, Danny Brown, A-Trak, The Lox, Remy Ma, Travis Scott, and much more… DCEVE also painted a few custom canvases for the event. Check out the photos below:

“For more than 30 years now, sharp-eyed New Yorkers have been finding them on ledges, windowsills and store counters — poker-chip-size coins that reveal themselves to be something far more mysterious than loose change…” 2010 New York Times article on Beriah Wall.
We recently collaborated with Brooklyn based artist Beriah Wall and created a ton of these Smart Coins picture below. These are individually hand crafted ceramic pieces that will be left all over New York City and given to friends & family. Hang on to these pieces if you find them as there will be more news to come!

For the last two Saturdays, Smart Crew in collaboration with Klughaus Gallery have been tagging the skies above NYC. Below are some shots of our tags with each letter about the size of the Empire State Building. Thanks to everyone who caught it and posted with #SMARTCREW (we probably stole your flick.) Two of the pilots flying the planes are actually Smart Crew members. Plug: Shout out to our main sponsor Geico. You will be seeing our names in the sky all summer long over New York City, so keep an eye out!

Animal New York – Smart Crew Tags The Sky
Last month, a couple of Smart Crew members painted the #NYCBOXTRUCK for Nike NYC in collaboration with Doubleday & Cartwright / Mass Appeal. This project consisted of a series of 5 box trucks featuring artists from each borough. (Toper – Smart Crew was also featured alongside Rime for the Staten Island Box Truck.) As always, we are always down to represent Queens! Side note: This truck was painted way before this World Cup/soccer craze but timed out perfectly. We especially had a lot of fun painting the top side of the truck. If you get any shots of the truck rolling around from above, send it our way!. Photos from the project below along with a video by Will Robson-Scott.
Last month, we worked on an art exhibit at Sixty Soho in collaboration with Animal New York and then got to destroy the artwork after the opening with sledgehammers. (We also invited people to come vandalize our work at the reception.) Needless to say, it was a fun time! Stay tuned as the full video by Animal New York is coming out soon…
