Brooklyn Street Art

…loves you more every day.

Images of the Week 11.04.12

Posted on November 4, 2012

This was a tough week for New York and we’re still struggling to recover from the Hurricane whose name we’re tired of saying. We have every reason to believe New Yorkers will continue to pull together, as we always do. Go Brooklyn! Go Staten Island! Go Manhattan! Go Queens! Go Bronx! Go Long Island! Go New Jersey! Go Connecticut! New York, you are beautiful and we love you.

As ever, photographer Jaime Rojo was on the streets shooting a lot of stuff, and of course there was new Street Art to discover too. So here’s our weekly interview with the street, including 2501, Bast, Cash for Your Warhol, Classic, Cynthia von Buhler, FKDL, Gilf!, Hanksy, JR, Nick Walker, Pixel Pancho, Rene Gagnon, Ron English, and You Are Beautiful.

These new Cash For Your Warhol signs are suddenly appearing again, and offering valuable authentication services also.  (photo © Jaime Rojo)

The Parisian FKDL left new stuff that appeared on the streets of Brooklyn recently, his collages now evolving to include more detailed figurework in a 1950s illustration style. Using clippings from vintage newspapers and magazines in the compositions, these wheat pastes/collages are hand colored and one of a kind, left for the few who catch sight of them before the weather destroys them.

Many boarded up and empty lots were uncovered by the fury of hurricane Sandy this week. Many plywood fences blew up and away, exposing the hidden walls. This is an old JR piece that we have documented before but we have not been able to get inside this fenced lot until now. Naturally, it now has been transformed a bit by the contributions of tags on it, sort of emulating the stripe painted across this native American’s face. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Here’s a Ron English installation in progress in Little Italy for The New York Comedy Central in association with Vandalog: “The Art of Comedy”. There will be an art walk to celebrate this installations. More details to follow on the BSA Calendar and Upcoming Events. Some local guys stopped to pose for this one. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Pixel Pancho brings in the robotic Dandy aesthetic at Bushwick Five Points. Also makes you think of a very young Colonel Sanders, right? (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Untitled. Hurricane Sandy caused NYC to go partially dark this week and even days after the storm there are still 2 million people without electricity. In this photo the Williamsburg Bridge is half illuminated on the Brooklyn side, half dark on the Manhattan side – a visual representation of the sense of loss the city is feeling right now.
