We’re really excited about the piece we did on the ever so talented husband-wife combo that is Hygienic Dress League for the Urban Innovation Exchange. Steve and Dorota have taken their signature style from Detroit clear to Europe and all throughout the United States, and we were proud to be able to do a piece on their work, their style and what they’re getting up to in the next few months. See the piece:
We are really pumped to see some more connection happening between Detroit and Lodz, the two cities we featured in our recent documentary “After the Factory” (that is playing at Traverse City Film Fest in August!). Street art duo Hygienic Dress League (that we’ve talked frequently about) has been making tracks through Lodz this past week doing a series of paintings, including one 70 foot mural near Lodz’ city center. See for yourself:
Nice to see some more connection being had obviously, but I think it just takes the narrative of the two cities one step further. Bravo!
Last week we talked about the dynamo street art team that is Hygienic Dress League and the global tracks they are making right now through Europe. The fun hasn’t stopped. Below we have shots of three more of their works in the UK, and word is that the train ain’t even close to stopping– they are now tackling Berlin, making Detroit proud.
Hygenic Dress League, a male and female power team of mostly hidden installation artists, has a new project up their sleeves. In the past, they’ve produced some interesting and cool work around town, mostly large paintings across buildings and other sites throughout the city that involve bright colors, stencils and a fair amount of spray paint. Remember the pigeons painted on the castle that Mike Illitch owns? That was an HDL production. Eventually it was covered up, but hey.
Well, they’re at it again. Not just any ol’ project, this here new one is a full-on solar powered neon lit sign to go on top of the defunct Roosevelt Hotel in Corktown. The giant sign will appear at the top of the hotel with the ironic message “No Vacancy.” The project is being done in conjunction with LOVELAND and they are inching their way to getting it funded through Kickstarter. With 38 hours left until the funding deadline hits, head on over to their page and dance a few greenbacks their way if you feel so inclined.
