The works of Ido Shemi

Ido Shemi is an Israeli artist, one of the first one who did here cool posters and flyers, back when he was runing the Dinamo Dvash club in Tel Aviv, more then a decade ago.. since then he shows his art world wide. here’s some of his israeli-rockabilly style mosaics

אני זוכר שפעם ראשונה בחיים שהייתי במסיבה באמת טובה, היתה מסיבת דראם אנ’ בייס בדינמו דבש בת”א לפני 11 שנה בערך, עד אז כל המסיבות שראיתי בחיפה היו עם מוזיקה של חלאות ושנאתי מסיבות. אבל מה שבאמת היה משוגע בשבילי זה לראות את הפלאיירים שהם היו מוציאים, לפני זה לא ראיתי בארץ מישהו שאשכרה השקיע בדברים האלו והבנתי שזה משהו שאני רוצה לעשות.. עידו שמי היה אחד מהבעלים של הדינמו והיה אחראי לאומנות של חלק מהפלאיירים, מאז הוא מציג בתערוכות בכל העולם, עם הסטייל הרוקבילי-ישראלי שלו.


really liked it, disturbing story, beautiful shots… greek is such a weird language


-we asked our good friend Walter, one of the most talented dj’s we know, to create a soundtrack for the installation at the TelAviv museum. came out dope as fuck, great tunes that really reflect the trippy gypsy sin city vibe we tried to create, inspired by our beloved hometown HIGHFA..

you can listen to the set here, or download it. if you want to hear more –  this thursday Walter will play at “The Block” with dj Krush from japan and Nosaj Thing from LA (!) we’re gonna team up with VJ RAMATZA to create visuals for the night… more info here

Pictures from “Vadi Niceness”. the exhibition will stay at the Helena Rubinstein pavilion for the next 4 months, so if youre in TelAviv go check it out, it looks better in real life..

Thanx a lot to our man Pitchon for the great pics, to Young Bloods crew for helping at the studio,to Gee for the name, and to mr. Gabi and the Pyramid family.





-this thursday will be the opening of “Inside Job” at the Tel Aviv Museum – the first ever street art show to take place in a museum in Israel..  we’re about to show new works and a wall we painted inside the place. participating beside us are 7 great artists: Adi “crazy eye” Sened, Ame72, Foma, Klone, Know Hope, Yochai Matos and Zero Cents.

– The last year was crazy for us.. we saw places in the world we never imagined we’ll get to see, and painted more than we ever did, It felt like the gypsies were living the dream… we never really planned to get into the “art world”, always just wanted to do graffiti and posters… Up until a year ago we hadn’t more than 2-3 shows in some small galleries, and suddenly we show our stuff at the 3 biggest museums in Israel, all in one hectic summer.. weird, but mostly great.. for us it’s pretty much an opportunity to take a break from everything and finally just sit in our studio and work on paintings.. come see it this Thursday @ Helena Rubinstein Pavilion, 20:00. here’s a sneak peek:
