BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

It’s a February pile-on this week with dangerous sub-zero wind chills on the street, Valentine’s Day smashing into Presidents Day, a Brooklyn Jew winning the New Hampshire primary against a former female New York Senator, a sudden passing of a Supreme Court judge, a T-shirt to wear to El Chapo’s Brooklyn trial. Also Kanye West held a fashion show at MSG/dropped an album/played SNL and may need counseling, Swoon popped up in Forbes, large bus stop screens were taken over by Vermibus, Specter and Seiler, and Conde Nast announced that there’s an art scene in Brooklyn. Who knew?

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Air3, Bie MOG, City Kitty, Gabriel Specter, Jordan Seiler, London Kaye, Naomirag, Raul Ayala, and Traz.

BSA Special Feature: Madrid’s Finest

A fresh new video with Alber, Snack, and Ysen piecing the be-jesus out of a wall in Spain and giving you pure eye candy for Film Friday this week. Each a member of a different crew, the collaborative effort is a demonstration of “unity is strength”. In their case, it is a lot of style as well.

10 Spots to Experience Street Art and Graffiti in NYC

A visitor from London took his tips about NY Street Art and Graffiti from Time Out magazine, as many tourists do. Hitting all the spots by car and shot entirely on an iPhone in January, it’s a surface survey, a current snapchat of a complex scene that quickly changes.

 

Aryz In Detroit

Aryz did this wall with help from Library Street Collective and it is a good look at his process of building an image, shot by Mike Mojica.

 

David Zayas Installation Timelapse for “Muralismo” Exhibition in Puerto Rico

A surprising video that captures the 44 day installation period artist David Zayas had to transform a space for his exhibition considering the contemporary mural as an historical and modern practice and a vehicle for communication at the Lugar Museo Las Americas.

Mr. Fijodor’s Phantasmagorical Creatures Somewhere in Italy

Posted on February 11, 2016

Wild Style. No, not the movie nor the distinctive look of aerosol lettering by a graffiti writer. But yes, that is what the Italian Mr. Fijodor refers to when talking about his surreal, simple and spontaneous creatures in an abandoned industrial grove. Maybe these are closer to Where the Wild Things Are since his style is more like an illustrator of a children’s fantastic tale than writer of a big burner.

“Clumsy hominids, hallucinated minotaurs, gargantuan fish and frightened dinosaurs peek out from the walls,” Mr. Fijodor tells us, and you can see how his imagination is freed in these spots that are slowly being reclaimed by the forces of nature. He says the hallucinatory phenoms come from his dreams as well as his nightmares but for urban explorers who like to discover places like this, they can become reality for a minute before they are covered with mold and vines.
