BSA again proudly shouts out Young New Yorkers this week as they offer you works by many Street Artists on the scene today at auction. Check out the auction on April 1st of some of New Yorks’ finest (and generous) Street Artists whose work will benefit the programs of “restorative justice” which YNY offers to 16 and 17 year olds in NYC who have become entangled with the law. (Video at bottom)

Also our hearts go to the neighbors who lost homes and were hurt (some very badly) in the explosion and fire that destroyed two buildings on the Lower East Side this week. Meme-making selfies by callous bimbos aside, stories of strangers and neighbors reaching out to help out remind us why we love NYC.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring B.D.White, City Kitty, Claw Money, Enzo Sarto, Hot Tea, Jeff Soto, Philippe Vignal, Rhino, Sbagliato, Sobr, Stikman, Tona, Urban Solid, and VK .

Hitnes Hits Piazza San Basilio for SANBA in Italy

Posted on March 28, 2015

Sanba is a program engaging the built public environment of suburban Rome with the aesthetics of the modern Street Art and muralism movement. For the last two years under the curation of Simone Pallotta, Sanba has found new locations for painting in the public sphere and engage in the cultural and civic building senses as well, with a goal toward engaging community. The large facades painted by international artists are not just a “Street Art event”, hopefully, says Pallota.  “The murals are a light bulb, a figurative outpost to a daily commitment made of culture and participation,” he says.

Here are five huge walls facing a public square that long ago began its decline. The artist Hitnes created works that would engage the neighbors, including young and old, to stand together and discuss the works – in effect bringing the outside space alive rather than simply one you pass through.

“The animals and the plants of his work live with the colors of the buildings, pink shades of an old red that is there from the 1950s. Animals, both terrestrial and marine, are hovering and flying all around the  trees with thin trunk, the marine pines that cover the neighborhood and that Hitnes uses to contextualize his work,” says Pallotta.

Kashink in Miami and her OUTSIDE / INSIDE project

Experimenter and Street Artist hailing from France, Kashink observes the absurd and reports what she has found. A brainy badass, Ms. Kashink uses vivid color, cartoon, and calculated critique to a scene, whether scripted or organic. Part painter/ part matinee idol, Kashink helps us to question the paradox of our art and creativity classification systems.

 

Hold On, Just Going to Post This Letter – Почта России

A social experiment with Russian post office boxes, here is a simple way to discourage the remaining 5 people who still mail letters.

Nuart 2014 via Hypebeast TV

A nice recap of the events at Nuart via HypeBeast.

Tost Films: Emigrantes en Yola

ROA teaser for Jonathan LeVine Gallery “Metazoa”

“ROA views the beaver, the state animal of New York, as a metaphor for the idea that nature has the ability to reclaim itself. The recovery of the beaver in New York City after it was previously thought extinct is exemplary of how humans and animals affect each other and reflects the artist’s interest in how animals evolve within urban landscapes.”

 

“Big City Life Rome” Part II

Posted on March 26, 2015

An update to the “Big City Life Rome” posting in February, here are the remaining murals in the neighborhood of Tomarancia. Produced and curated by 999Contemporary Gallery, these March walls are of equal size and dimension as the previous ones, bringing to mind the swatches of cloth sometimes used to create a quilt. Included here is new work from Caratoes, Jericho, Matteo Basile, Danilo Bucchi, SatOne, Pantonio, and Clemens Bher. The international group of artists have diverse styles, but the quality is high!
