El Sol 25 Returns with Wings

Posted on July 2, 2012

The summer sol is back in the Brooklyn sky and El Sol 25 is back in the streets of Brooklyn after an absence of how long, a year or so?  Can’t remember exactly, but anyway there is a new crop of hand-painted collaged figurative characters up using his unmistakable style of mixing and matching sources, genders, races, cultures, and symbols.  As a group the collection includes more carefully dimensioned rendering of limbs and textures, more relaxed flexibility in the forms, and more wings with which to fly. Here are four new pieces we found around the neighborhood for you to see.

El Sol 25 placed this new wheat-pasted piece on an old piece by Veng of RWK that had already been destroyed, apart from the circular frame. Seems kind of perfect, given the compositional balance of the multi-limbed form. Have to mention the 80′s era Michael Jackson jacket and skull and the third anniversary of his passing was last week on June 25th. Also next to this piece is the new collaboration by Veng and Chris of RWK with Gilf! (see yesterday’s Images of the Week.) (photo © Jaime Rojo)
