Etnik’s Geometric Forms Popping Off in Rome

Posted on April 13, 2015

Furthering his examination of geometric forms interacting in a multi-dimensional field, Etnik creates this new mural in a Roman neighborhood in full view from your terrace. The cube forms emanate forward from a central gravity mass toward the viewer, popping off the enormous sky-blue canvas.

Initiated by a gallery in Tor Pignattara, be sure to check out the video of Etni in action at the end of the post.The “Street Heart” project is curated by Marta Gargiulo and Varsi gallery along with Massimo Scrocca and Marco Gallotta.

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

This Sunday’s collection of images of the week presents a fair number of unknown artists alongside better known names such as Dennis McNett and Stikman expressing fantasies, fears, politics, geopolitics, economics, and existential matters… such is the nature of the street.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Clint Mario, Dennis McNett, Observer Obscura, Sean 9 Lugo, Sobr, Stikman, Taousuz, and Tona.

Opiemme: Poetry and Vortexes in Argentina and Uruguay

Posted on April 11, 2015

Opiemme continues on the search for suitable locations for his Vortexes – a circular shape that contains text and words and poetic dispatches. He likens them to a swirl, a whirlpool, a spiralling symbol of life which mirrors the shape of our galaxy, the Milky Way. He recently travelled to some spots in South America and shares with BSA readers some of his adventures in Argentina and Uruguay.

You may recall that BSA featured the Argentinian Gualicho in this very modest barrio for a small festival called Pintò la Isla and here we have Opiemme’s collaboration with both he and Florencia Mayra Gargiulo. In it you see the separation and the reformation of letters into fertile soil. “The grey wall suggested to me the idea of a “broken” planet with letters coming out of it, collecting together and going to recreate life somewhere else,” says Opiemme. In this case you see the letters collecting into a new black circle, giving birth to a Gualicho plant.

This vortex in Mar Del Plata contains the words of the Mexican poet Enrique González Martínez, specifically his poem “The Seeding of the Stars”.

Y mirarán absortos el claror de tus huellas,
y clamará la jerga de aquel montón humano:
“Es un ladrón de estrellas…” Y tu pródiga mano
seguirá por la vida desparramando estrellas. . . .

In this quick street piece painted with David de la Mano in the center of Montevideo, , Opiemme wanted to relate the figure and the words to the nearby church of Nuestra Senora de los Dolores Tierra Santa.

Appropriately titled “Asunciòn”, it is based on a poem by Julio Cortàzar, the novelist, short story writer, and essayist. “Oh noche, asiste” is about outer space as well, Opiemme tells us, and he used the portion of the poem that says “Oh night take care of your lonely stars”.

“It’s an evanescent, delicate, light work that seems to play with the nearby church,” he says, “as well as with aliens.”

The Reinvention of Normal: Dominic Wilcox

“By doing the ridiculous, something else might come of it,” says Dominic Wilcox, and we couldn’t agree more.

“Just off the wall. And that is what I’ve always encouraged in him.” says Dominic’s dad.

“I had this idea to come up with something creative every day for 30 days,” says the artist.

And this is how we all move forward.

Rallitox: Chicken Murder on Williamsburg Street Corner

Insert joke about hipsters here. Actually, this is Williamsburg – hipsters left a few years ago and only return to reminisce. Nonetheless this installation and the blasé reactions of the passive consumer class to Rallitox’s installation are illuminating. Please take your photo and move on.

Also interesting to note, Rallitox reports that a dead animal is cheaper than aerosol paint or markers for making art.

 

Abdel Maged Amara: LIES – The Street Walkers

Take a look at how to make a 3D Graffiti sculpture and then suspend it in what appears to be its natural environment.

Sbagliato in London Creates a False Hallway

Optical illusion is featured in this tease for upcoming Sbagliato project. Walk this way.

Hitnes in Rome: Blind Eye Factory
