BSA Images Of The Week: 02.05.17

Posted on February 5, 2017


BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

It’s surreal to be on the south side of the US border when Trump has just signed an executive order to build a wall, decides to try to pick a fight with the President of Mexico and drops a travel ban. Gosh, between giving away everything to his ultra-rich friends, loosening regulations on their companies, bringing Frederick Douglass back to life, skipping the Jews, and insulting some key strategic-historic allies it’s just a wonder that he has time to attack the press and say that everyone is lying except him.

As we looked for murals and graffiti in the warm winter sun on main street and back street walls and along rails and on freight trains, we got a taste for the clever wit and aerosol talents of Mexican Street Artists. It may help that they have the amazing muralist history of Mexico to call upon.

We start this week with a huge mural in downtown Chihuahua with their namesake dog who appears to have a peyote blossom on his mind, perhaps looking for an alternate reality to help process all the alternative facts coming from up north. Is surreality here to stay?

Here’s our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuring: Antonio Leon, ASET, DAOR, Daniel Montes, Disko, Nino Fidencio, Rick, SPK FUK, Sebastian Gallegos, SOER and Vera Primavera.
