In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
~Alfred Lord Tennyson

The streets are coming alive with sculpture-like objects this spring – repurposed household items and brand new houses for the avian set are suddenly popping up like yellow and purple crocuses on the toxic banks of the Gowanus Canal. Also you’ll notice a bit more nudity these days, some frankly frank, as spring and a young man’s/woman’s fancy are abloom.

Here is our weekly interview with the street: this week featuring Fly Kid, Haculla, L.O.L. Von Shan, Obey, Rae, Rambo, RTTP, Sabio, Shepard Fairey, Stikman, Tristan Eaton, and XAM.

RAE.  The thrills of photographing Street Art can be similar to those of a treasure hunt. When I have the opportunity to witness the public being engaged with the art in the street the thrill turns into poetry. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

This billboard on the BQE has had a long run and it could be landmarked. Alternately, it could be a fine ad for Taco Bell fake meat products.  Sabio. Obey. Rambo  (Photo © Jaime Rojo)

They come with a satellite dish on top, presumably for in-home viewing of Animal Planet specials on the mini plasma.  “CSD DWELLING UNIT 1.6” (photo © Jaime Rojo)
