Stikman Spring Break 2015

Posted on April 18, 2015

Spring has broken out all over New York! It’s time to go topless on the Coney Island Beach! And in front of the Bowery Wall today where Ron English is putting up more Popaganda! He’s doing more painting on top of the wheat-pasted critique of consumerism that he began yesterday.

Also it’s time to try and spot those enigmatic little stiff stick men by Stikman that have been popping up in unexpected places. How does he continuously morph himself into new shapes and yet retain his sturdy character? Have a great sunny afternoon and go see the new wall and say hi to Martha for us. Oh, and Ron too of course. xo

BSA Special Feature:
Gladys Hulot, AKA Hyrtis Animates David Bowie “Life in Mars”

BSA readers will dig this animation of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars,” Gladys Hulot, also known as Hyrtis, brings Bowie to slink through the cracks and around the concrete underground, dripping with piercing drama, and plenty of distinctive style. The voice here is stunningly replaced with a musical saw, giving the chameleon just one more layer to his multiple identities.  Not precisely street art, but Bowie’s ties to the street are undisputed.

 

Jorge Rodriguez-Gerarda. “Grounded Gratitude” Paris, France.

With “Grounding Gratitude” painted at the festival In Situ Art of Aubervilliers during spring 2014, Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada paints Nicole Picquart, a social worker who helps people to have a better life.

Gola and Some “Olio Santo” to Heal Italy’s Olive Trees

Posted on April 16, 2015

Barcelona based Italian Street Artist Gola is worshipping at the mystical the tree of life. He even emulates a tree as he stands atop the scissor lift; arms pulled inside his roomy sweater and extending branches out of the openings where hands would normally appear, reaching skyward, striking an open and powerful stance.

If only his power could save the olive trees of South Italy.

A bacterium spread by insects has been blamed for the devastation of tens of thousands of acres in Apulia (Puglia), and now the European Commission is proposing the destruction of up to 11 million olive trees. France has just announced that it will ban import of vegetables from the region.

Gola is looking for some holy oil (“Olio Santo”), or some sort of miraculous solution to a growing crisis that strikes at the heart of Italian cuisine, history, its economy, and cultural identity. With “Olio Santo” as a campaign he has created this image of an olive tree in trouble on paper, on canvas, as a t-shirt design, and now upon a huge wall.

“It symbolizes the obscure circumstances around Xylella fastidiosa (the plant pathogen) and the olive trees sickness, the epidemic, and the dramatic measures that have been proposed to solve it. Zoology and botany are his baliwick, and his murals often include these natural elements combined with his unique appropriation of spiritual traditions and innovative aesthetic weaving. He’s taken this worldview to Russia and Palestine, Brazil, and Kazakistan, Canada and Japan.

But this land is his home, so a sacred healing ointment is sorely wished for. The gold and masonic symbols hold special meaning to him and Olio Santo is actually the name of a popular olive oil made with the fruits of these endangered trees. Luckily for us the sacred oil here is shared for anyone who happens to be walking by.
