Maintaining The Balance Project by Dave the Chimp


    The aim of this project promoted by Dave the Chimp is:
    To balance the output of street pieces and products for sale
    To remain authentic while being commercially viable


    Maintaining The Balance - Project 1

    A stencil image is painted in the streets as many times as possible with one 400 ml can of paint.
    The painted pieces are documented and counted.
    An equal number of prints are produced at the same size, in the same colour, of the same design.
    Each print is sold with a photograph of it's corresponding street piece.


    Maintaining The Balance - Project 2

    A stencil is painted in the street to advertise the artists latest print release
    A print is produced in order to gain financially from the artists latest street piece

    Maintaining The Balance - Project 3

    Customers are invited to purchase a print which funds an identical street piece.
    The artist produces two identical prints. One is sent to the customer, the other is pasted in the street.
    The print includes the customers name. The customer becomes both a patron of art for the community and
    an accomplice in an act of "vandalism".
    The artist and customer both share the "fame" acquired with "getting their name up", and the risk involved
    with the act of doing so.

    1. A nice, lazy way for someone to get their name on a wall without having to do much themselves.

      I'm not sure how I feel about that.
