Back in January, CL caught up with Nathan Bolster and Living Walls founder Monica Campana to talk about Streetela, a new Atlanta-based blog and apparel brand that works with street and emerging artists. On Saturday, they're having an official launch party with a group exhibition featuring work by fifteen artists from Atlanta and elsewhere along with a fashion show of artist-designed shirts. Allen Taylor, Betwo, Do it, Dorothy Stucki, Evereman, Feral Child, Geewiz, Joe Tsambiras, Josh Fiegert, Joy Phrasavath, Mike Germon, Nikita Gale, Ola Bad, Paper Twins, and PLF will all be showing work.

In anticipation of the show, they've been putting together some slick video profiles of the participating artists. Their videos of street artists like Paper Twins or Ola Bad are masterworks of preserving anonymity through soft focus and obscure angles, while the interviews with Dorothy Stucki or Mike Germon have the casual vibe of hanging out with the artist at home.

The show comes at time of increased attention, positive and negative, for street artists in Atlanta. Paper Twins have been showing up all over lately: on Wooster Collective, in Spain, reminding us to get tested on MTV. On the other hand, Ola Bad is among a number of unnamed defendants in an ambitious, $1 million dollar lawsuit against graffiti artists and businesses in Atlanta.

Check out a few more videos and details about the show after the jump.
