BSA Images Of The Week: 08.30.15

Posted on August 30, 2015



Dude, Dudette, this is the moment to make the most of Summer before it in subsumed into crazy New York fall. There is so much art on the streets you may not even want to go inside. Actually, if you haven’t seen the China: Through the Looking Glass at the Metropolitan Museum, you have to go – it could blow your mind with all the video and costume and power and history and modern western interpretations of it, sho nuff.

If you wonder what we’ve been up to and what on the near horizon- check out yesterdays posting “Round Up! BSA at NUART, Borås, Coney, BKM, and ON Brooklyn Streets”

Right now Street Artists are beginning to take into account a large pimple on the butt of the US, Mr. Donald Trump. Of course the streets always render opinions in such clever and pointed ways – helping us to cope with a corporate media infotainment machine that can’t help but chase a fire and pour gasoline on it for ratings. Actually NemO’s new mural of a man caught inside a TV-as-guillotine is also apropo.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Adam Cost, Aiko, Clint Mario, DRE, Ernest Zacharevic, Foxx Faces, Hanksy, Hunt, Indie184, Ivanorama, LUDO, Mr. Toll, NemO’s, Overunder, Phlegm, Raphail, She Wolf, Sure We Can, Thiago Goms, and Zed1.

Round Up! BSA at NUART, Borås, Coney, BKM, and ON Brooklyn Streets

Posted on August 29, 2015

BSA is excited to be at the Nuart Festival to celebrate 15 years this week. As we told Katherine Brooks in The Huffington Post yesterday “We’ve always admired their willingness to push past comfort zones and embrace a hybrid of academic programming and a rebellious streak that stays true to graffiti’s roots.”

And if you look at the lineup of artists, speakers, and assorted guests you can see that the quality and intellectual firing of synapis is there again this year.

BSA is doing two events for visiting Street Art fans and academics alike – similar to what we did last year – BSA Film Friday LIVE, with the theme of “Play in the Streets” at the theater downtown (,

FB-BSA-Film-Friday-Live-Nuart-2015-v2and we’ll be co-hosting with Arrested Motion the panel on “Play” with Martha Cooper, Harmen de Hoop, and Bortusk Leer all showing us how they approach the topic of “play” in the public sphere through their work.


Also participating in the seminar portion of the days events will be Pedro Soares Neves (Founder, Lisbon Street Art and Urban Creativity), Xavi Ballaz (Founder, OpenWalls Barcelona), Eirik Sjåholm Knudsen (Norwegian School of Economics) and Marcus Willcocks (Research Fellow, University of the Arts London/Graffolution) all addressing  “The academic invasion of street art”.

Day 1 will feature an impressive roster as well – co-hosted by Juxtapoz and VNA – discussing institutions and DIY culture with Henriette Roued-Cunliffe (Assistant Professor at the Royal School of Library and Information Science, University of Copenhagen), Geir Haraldseth (Director, Rogaland Kunstsenter), Eva González-Sancho (Curator, Oslo Pilot) and the artist Julien de Casabianca of Outings Project. Carlo McCormick will talk with Jamie Reid (!), and Evan Pricco teams up with artists Futura and Ernest Zacharevic.

See the full list of artists and special guests and events at and we’ll of course be keeping you in the action first hand all week.

Thank You for Coming Last Week to Coney Island Museum!

We had a stupendous time meeting you and talking about a handful of artists we have “On The Radar” last weekend at the beach – yes Brooklyn has a beach and it is as clean and as dirty as you imagine. We had a blast and were really pleased to be invited by Jeffrey Deitch, who has curated the 30+ wall show currently on view along with cool DJs and performers all summer at Coney Art Walls. Thanks to everyone, including the dudes on impressive choppers who roared in next door and made us act tough and swear a lot.


BKM-BSA Street Art Tour Was Hot, Humid, Cool

We had a stupendous time leading a tour for @brooklynmuseum members on the 22nd – Thanks to everyone for coming out!

We don’t really do the tour thing much – once a year or two – but smart engaged curious folks from many perspectives like these make it a pure joy – and widen our own understanding about this amazing time in the realms of public space and artistic expression. Thanks for inviting us, for seeing the value of art in the streets and for this opportunity Brooklyn Museum, Sharon Matt Atkins, and Lauren Zelaya.

The Weird World of the Weird Crew in BK

Posted on August 29, 2015

Things are looking weird in Brooklyn at the moment thanks to Cone, Dxtr, Hrvb, Look, and Vidam.

The Berlin based crew are in town for their show at Exit Room that opened last night and as soon as they hit the streets they also knocked out this wall in BK. A collective of 5 individually talented character-based painters and illustrators, the pop-comic-zine-tattoo-ink-skater influences all have an interplay in their various collaborations. Here is the latest in the warped vision of the Weird Crew.

BSA Film Friday: 08.28.15

Posted on August 28, 2015




Our weekly focus on the moving image and art in the streets. And other oddities.

Now screening :

1. Lilith and Olaf at Nuart ’15 by Ella & Pitr
2. Come Enjoy the Wonderful World of Dismaland!
3. Wall Therapy 2015: Eder Muniz
4. Wall Therapy 2015: Handiedan


BSA Special Feature: Lilith and Olaf at Nuart ’15 by Ella & Pitr

Straight from Nuart 2015 to you, a possibly world record breaking outdoor figurative mural!  It could be the largest one ever!

Completed in Klepp, Rogaland, in only four days this week, French artists Ella & Pitr and an “army of volunteers” covered 21,000m2 on Block Berge Bygg’s roof with their original composition entitled Lilith and Olaf. For you non-Norwegians, King Olaf 1 ruled for the final five years of the first millenium. Olaf Tryggvason gets a comparatively small role in this mural – as if he is a toy dropped from Lilith’s hand as she slumbers here on the roof.


This project was completed so freshly that we only have this silent drone footage for you right now. We’re sure there will be a finished video of this in the future and actually BSA will be able to inspect this in person in a couple of days as we travel to Nuart 2015 so we’ll let you know just how big it is.

The mural will be officially ‘opened’ by the Mayor of Klepp, Ane Mari Braut Nese, next Friday at 4, which means we will still have time to bring her back to see our BSA FILM FRIDAY LIVE at the theater in downtown Stavanger. Hope you can come too!

Come Enjoy the Wonderful World of Dismaland!

If this doesn’t send the whole family running for the mini-van then you are not a true believer in the Magic Thingdom. See our review of this heavy-hitting satirical art installation just opened : The Wonderfully Dismal Kingdom of Banksy.



Wall Therapy 2015: Eder Muniz

All you gotta do is check out this dude dancing while he works to appreciate how much he loves to paint and where the joy comes from.


Wall Therapy 2015: Handiedan

Handiedan was the first muralist this year, and one of the most eclectic. Her distinctive cut collages of currency and curvaceous beauties in her fine art is translated in wheatpaste across the facade of this Rochester former church.
