Ellis G Draws You In

Detailed Work, Contemplative, and Playful (photo Steven P. Harrington)

The Brooklyn Street Artist Uses Chalk to Outline the Mundane and Make it Magic

I remember we used to have a chalkboard in the living room when I was a kid, and I liked to draw our dog and our cats on it all the time. It was a blast!

Ellis G. likes to draw his bicycle mainly – and when you see one on the sidewalk, all Robin’s Egg Blue chalk, and Banana Creme Pie Yellow chalk – your heart gets wings.

But EllisG. traces shadows of all kinds of things on the sidewalks. One time I found this outline of a giant leafy plant along Wythe Avenue near the Williamsburg Bridge, and I looked up to see this tropical looking bush climbing up the side of a brick house. His work draws your attention to things that you may not see, and in that way, draws you into his world. It’s a quiet, playful one.

Military in Brooklyn Streets! Cum Quick!

Dispatches From the Action and a briefing from General Howe

Recently we’ve been seeing soldiers in the streets of Brooklyn, and it has tapped into fears of an encroaching military state.  These troop movements always start out small, but eventually they could take over the borough entirely.

During a briefing on these developments at BSACom (Command Center), artist General Howe talked about his installations, their formations around suspicious objects, and how the ’08 election focused his maneuvers on the field this year.

Brooklyn Street Art: The recent US presidential campaign inspired a huge number of artists to get into the conversation.  How did it affect your art?

General Howe: Before this year I never made political art.  But this year was clearly going to be history in the making, for better or worse.  For me, making political art during the presidential campaign was my own way of saying this is an important time for our country and we need to consider our future.

as a side note...

During my summer vacations in college, and for a brief time after college,  I worked  in the United States Senate.  My position was very low on the totem pole, and I did not work for a specific Senator or party, but I was constantly around Senators.  I would pass them in the hall ways, listen to them in the Senate chamber, and on occasion have small talk with them.  I was around Obama, McCain, and Clinton and when they became popular in this election season, I reflected on this past experience.  I don’t know them personally, but I do know them in a way that is not translated through popular media.  It would be a missed opportunity without making some kind of art relating to my experience.

Brooklyn Street Art: What made you start merging the candidates with superheroes? Was it the outlandish budgets that are spent on these Hollywood productions?

General Howe: The media and campaigns portrayed senators like McCain, Clinton and Obama into fantastical characters from a movie.  I saw so many parallels to the Batman movie that came out this past summer.  They might as well have worn masks and capes to events and interviews.

Obama was raised to a hero-like status, Batman, the only one capable of stopping the enemy.  When Clinton lost to Obama, it was speculated that she would try to ruin his chances at the presidency, becoming his nemesis, the Joker.

In some cases  what was being portrayed was very true.  I made John McCain into 2face because the John McCain on the campaign trail was very different from the guy I would watch in the Senate.

As a young man, Benjamin Franklin wrote under the pseudonym of Mrs.Silence Dogood.  He poked fun at aspects of colonial America through his writings.  My work is poking fun at how ridiculous the media portrays current events.

Brooklyn Street Art: Your other work, installations of colonial armies, is less often seen, maybe because it is so small…

General Howe: They are very small, each soldier is about an inch in height.  When I have gone back to see the installations they are often gone, maybe one or two broken figures remain.  I wonder what happens to the rest of them.  Do people take them and keep them for them selves?  I sometimes imagine rats taking them away to their layers as prisoners of a world street war.

Brooklyn Street Art: Who are these little soldiers and who are they fighting?

General Howe: These are British colonial soldiers sent by the king of England to stop the American Revolution.  They are at a serious height disadvantage but make up for it with bravery and discipline.

Brooklyn Street Art: Is this Howe you got your name?

General Howe: Yes it is.  General William Howe was Commander-in-Chief of British forces during the American revolution.

I also thought back to childhood, playing with toy soldiers or toy guns and assuming  the role of  some sort of a  commanding leader or hero.  Why would I be a Private when I can make my self a General.

Brooklyn Street Art: Is your battlefield historical fascination academic or fantastical?

General Howe: It is definitely academic and fantastical along with old fashion play.  I’ve done a ton of research on locations of revolutionary war battles in Brooklyn.  Most of the battle installations I have done are at sites where actual battles occurred.  Once I get to these sites the fantasy begins.  I play around with the soldiers trying out different formations and I come up with all kinds of scenarios that the soldiers could be in.  A whole narrative may play out while setting up the soldiers.

Step Back, we Don't Know How Big this Will Get!   (General Howe)  (image General Howe)

Step Back, We Don't Know How Big This Gets!   (General Howe)  (Image General Howe)

For example, one of the first times I went out to install some soldiers I came across a used condom on the ground.  At first I was disgusted, but then I thought, “what would mini British colonial soldiers from the 1700’s do if they stumbled upon a used condom?”  So the condom became part of the piece.  Since then I always hope the locations I go to will have interesting or weird objects to use with the battles.

Brooklyn Street Art: What would you like someone’s reaction to be when they stumble upon one of your installations?

General Howe: One time while I was setting up a battle a man walked by and toward my installation, made motions and sounds as if he were blowing up the soldiers, and then walked away laughing to himself.  Upon seeing the installation, I think he immediately tapped into his childhood spirit of play and acted out what he would do with the soldiers in that situation.  The reaction I would really like from anyone that sees one of my installations is to have the urge to play.

Morning Breath & Cycle, Nathan Lee Pickett, Bonnie Durham at Ad Hoc

Morning Breath & Cycle – “Oddities”

Front Gallery

Morning Breath and Cycle

Morning Breath and Cycle


Morning Breath is Doug Cunningham and Jason Noto. In 1996, the two worked together on skateboard designs at Think Skateboards in San Francisco. There, they discovered they had similar tastes and influences, many of which were associated with the late 70s and early 80s. These included everything from sniffing glue and punk rock to racking paint and hip hop.  Over the years, their collaborations have grown beyond skateboard graphics to include graffiti art, music packaging and more. And in 2002, Cunningham and Noto formalized their partnership with the creation of Morning Breath, a creative studio located in Brooklyn. Today, Doug and Jason split their creative energies and time between commercial and personal work. In 2006, their first book was published: The Early Bird – The Art and Design of Morning Breath.


For nearly 20 years the name CYCLE has been a fixture in graffiti in the United States.  Although plenty difficult to make a substantial impact in New York City’s saturated graffiti scene, Cycle has managed to do so while even pulling off the same feat in both DC and San Francisco, as well as a gang of freight trains in between.  Somegraffiti writers have followers who paint in their style.  But CYCLE isn’t one of these.  Rather, he sets a quiet example for younger graffiti writers with his consistency, woring equally in tags, throwups and pieces, all the while creating riveting work.  The end result – despite such diverse style skills – is work that immediately announces CYCLE.  CYCLE received his BFA from George Washington University in Washington DC and then his Masters from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.  Currently, he produces Fine Art, Illustration and Graphic Design for collectors, clients and companies all around the world.

Nathan Lee Pickett – “Breath Like You Mean It”

Project Room
Nathan Lee Pickett was born in Portsmouth, Virginia. He lives and works in Brooklyn. Inspired by graffiti, classical painting and calligraphy, he fuses cut paper with paint to create an eclectic mix of stoic and ethereal figures within celestial voids. Nathan seeks to synthesize a lifetime experience worth of exposure to visual overload, mythology, and chaos. The improvisational nature of his work uncovers at once his fears, desires and dreams. Evident in its labor intensiveness, his display of dedication to craft  provides us with a sophisticated color palette and textural richness that is the embodiment of his work. His warm and vivid imagination weaves together compelling stories that are both graphically visionary and poetically expressive.

Bonnie Durham

Bonnie Durham’s work is about tuning in to her surroundings and never wasting time.  Painting with gouache, acrylic, ink and watercolor and using calligraphy brushes, she slowly thins out the color in backgrounds of her work before creating the surface ‘spraypainted’ effects (without the use of spraypaint) which have become a trademark in Durham’s paintings.  Recently, collage elements from used books containing old illustrations have found their way into her works.  Her surfaces range from the traditional canvas, wood and panel, to the quite non-traditional cutting boards, clipboards, dresser drawers and wooden trays, which she find at flea markets, second hand stores and discarded on the streets.  She has shown in New York, Los Angeles and Canada.

Favorite Shepard Fairey Obama Spoofs

Oh sure, Obama Won.

But one of the Real Winners in ’08 was Mr. Obey, who can now lay claim to having created an Iconic image that transcends many categories and ends up in the history books. And let’s hear it for Community Organizing! – a term snarled from the stage of the puffy pasty convention. Shepard Fairey deserves praise for all the work he did with and the Obama campaign to bring more diverse voices (many of them voting for the first time) into the big tent and help reclaim a sense of a government for the people by the people. How grand.

And there were many inspired versions of the original Red/Blue Change-Hope-Progress posters, sometimes with themes in direct opposition to Obama’s, sometimes so quirky and wacky that they wandered off the farm. There must have been hundreds – every kid with Photoshop and a smart-alecky wit did a version; maybe wheatpasting it, sometimes planting it on a t-shirt, more often emailing it- now that’s Democracy!

AMAZING discoveries are Infinite in Bushwick

AMAZING discoveries are Infinite in Bushwick

Who's that girl staring out from the maze? (photo Celso)

Brooklyn street artist Infinity talks about his new show with Celso and friends, symbolism, and how we are all “big bang breath”

Part of the appeal of street art is the act of discovery. Even though urban planners may love to tell you that the chaotic grid of broken streets in New York’s largest borough have logic, I’m always getting lost. It’s a giant maze of wonderment and frustration.

And don’t tell me that GPS is going to solve that problem…. BTW, Don’t you love your newly techno-nuttified corner taxi service guy now that he’s got one of those $79 electronic global positioning map rectangles perched atop his dashboard? – you climb in the back seat and suddenly he’s going 115 miles an hour down side streets with his eyes sucked into that little screen like it’s real live PSP crack, blithely running over dogs and small children in real time!

Right, so this artists’ life — it’s about discovery, a veritable MAZE of possibilities around every corner in Brooklyn neighborhoods; Art, advertisements, billboards, street signs – everybody is always communicating. Maybe you are going to find a new Swoon smacked up under the highway, or maybe you’ll find a cat smashed on the pavement. Or maybe you’ll see that new HELLBENT angel with arrows sticking in her torso. And it’s right next to a Judith Supine way up on the side of a factory. How do they get up there anyway?

Keep your eyes peeled, the messages on the street seem infinite. Just ask Infinity! He is co-curating a maze of his own with Celso, opening this weekend at Factory Fresh. Infinity says the maze reflects his own interpretation of the streets, “For me the maze is like our urban cityscape, a semiotic landscape of signs and symbols, messages to buy, expressions of human spirit, traffic regulations, political persuasions, etcetera”.

Celso calls their new installation, “a multidimensional environment designed to overwhelm the senses”. Together these two ELC alumni have completely been pushing themselves and each other to make a great show of it – and they’ve brought along 3 friends to add to the mix; the newly morphing Stikman, the New York multi-storied old-schooler LAII, and relative newcomer Cbeauty.

Infinity took a moment to talk with us about his approach to the creative spirit and the upcoming show;
Brooklyn Street Art: How did you come up with the idea of A MAZE?

: I don’t know exactly where Celso got his initial inspiration, but I was immediately into it when we started throwing ideas around in the spray room in our studios. We’ve totally crushed the walls in there so we are surrounded by two-stories of art by our friends and us. Basically we work in a maze of art. Osmosis in the petri dish.

Celso and I painted the majority of the walls, which are 6×10 feet, but Stikman, LA2, and Cbeauty worked on a few too. We are showing all kinds of smaller pieces, art objects and books too. Stikman has a customized-condom dispenser, and I’ll be showing my passion poster series. The backyard will have some sculptural stuff and also a new mural. LA2 will be hooking up a DJ and possibly break dancers.

Brooklyn Street Art: How does the MAZE reflect the urban cityscape and your experience on the street?
Infinity: I find it interesting that the painted maze ends up being like a diorama of a city, creating a simile, like an urban semiotic landscape. The city is a maze of signs and symbols, messages, coercion, personal expressions, traffic regulations, political persuasions, buy-sell-buy-sell, etc. Everything is crafted to tell us something by someone, and it’s all mediated, and the medium is the mess! It’s all mediated by the exchange of money and private property, whether it’s an advertiser, your clothes, your privacy, the government, or the ruling class making everything monolithic and orderly so they/we can feel safe, in control and keep us/them in line. I have no friends living in Manhattan any longer. Broken window theory? Human spirit before real estate! It’s the paradox of safety versus control.

But, for me, I think our painted maze-scape is a celebration, a burst of the human spirit, an amazing month of collaboration, improvisation, and experimentation. Although Manhattan might eventually be one sterile monolithic symbol of power, of real estate over people, so every time someone makes art, has a show, or puts something out, I enjoy it as some kind of communication, a rallying yelp, an aesthetic action, a statement in favor of the individual, the mutating aspiring tumescent resonant human spirit. We are big bang breath and we are mutating our culture, and eventually our biology, our cells, our dna. Rewrite the human genome!!!

Brooklyn Street Art: Is it true you guys did some dumpster-diving to create this show?
Infinity:We were going to build the walls but luckily fate intervened. El Mighty Celso just happened to notice eight union-built, theatre set walls in the garbage in Manhattan. He immediately rented a truck and brought them to the studio. My hero. Such great quality and totally free. A cool connection to and energy from the City. Then we spent a month just painting ‘em back and forth, over and over. It was one of the most fun months ever in my life.

Brooklyn Street Art: Infinity, your work is full of symbols, like scientific notations, maybe they are little DNA strands… And in collaborative pieces you like to mix your DNA symbols freely. Are you trying to fool around with the gene pool?
Infinity:A resonant symbol can change everything from the mind to the heart to the cells. I am working on a Grand Semiotic Unification Theory to tie together all the different sign systems from different disciplines, such as chemistry, algebra, the alphabet, and create grammatically mutating equations of unity, aspiration, and infiltration. This should allow for a cohesion and amplification of resonance of the resulting talismans, the recombinant charms, so that this resulting lexicon would be the equivalent of a witch’s spell book, and we could simply twitch our noses, and advance humanity.

Putting stuff on the street imbues it with a statement based in personal risk, masked-avenger mystery and anti-status-quo symbolism. It can be a direct personal connection, an unmediated communication from artist to viewer, amplifying the resonance, and multiplying transmissions.

So the ugly duckling, the errant lunatic, the artistic psychotic, the political activist, the disenfranchised, the visionary evangelist, etc. can take matters into there own hands, hit the streets, and spread the word, the seeds, their respelled genome. This allows for that one lone mutant prestidigitator to cut through the system and mutate our cultural DNA, giving it a chance to change the world. 88+)

Brooklyn Street Art: Can you talk a little bit about the other artists in the show? Is Stikman kind of skinny and robotic?
Infinity: I dont know… He uses a cloaking device most of the time …

Brooklyn Street Art: Where did LA2 come from?
Infinity: He is an old-school graffiti artist from the Lower East Side in Manhattan. He grew up there in the Seventies where he met Keith Haring and became a constant collaborator. His work still resonates with that energy and practically shakes itself off the wall with its visual vibrations.

Brooklyn Street Art: Is this the first show for Cbeauty?
Infinity: Yes. She does beautiful stencils, drawings and wheat pastes. Like Stikman, she is a phantom, only revealing herself through her aesthetic apparitions.

Brooklyn Street Art: You suffered some serious back problems this year, which really limited your ability to move around much. How did that affect your creative life?
Infinity: I was laid up with a pinched nerve for three months, confined pretty much to a matt on the floor, crawling to physical therapy three times a week. I became totally stir crazy and depressed, but at least a few interesting paintings, and a new compositional strategy, came out of it. One time, when I was panicking about getting supplies for the work for this show, I just took the panels off of the cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom and did some very intense ink-and-scratch paintings on them. They have some weird energy now, covered with a kind of agoraphobic, toxic spew, like fumes from all the chemicals and poisonous products mixing and mutating underneath your sink, your skin, your cells.

Brooklyn Street Art: Is Celso kind of Bossy?
Infinity: Huh? No. But very interesting and revealing question. I’m betting that there is someone else out there who could answer it cattier than I.

Show Me the Munny! (photo Celso)

Brooklyn Street Art: You have a little book in the show called APPENDIX: ANTHEM. Is it self-published?
Infinity: Yes. I like to make personal little books, especially mini-comics and chapbooks, which are xeroxed, but also have a personal touch involved. Falls somewhere between book arts and artist’s books.

Brooklyn Street Art: Can you talk about what’s inside the book?
Infinity: First, I used orange spray paint in specified spots on graph paper. Then I xeroxed a handwritten pencil manuscript onto the pages. Lastly, it was saddle-stapled with a black cover. Its called APPENDIX: ANTHEM because its sort of a poetic lexicon that attempts to define some of the words and symbols that I use as motifs in my work. It’s also about the aspirational nature of the human spirit as expressed through street art, the community it creates, and its affect on mainstream culture. But mainly it’s a celebration of all the great people that I have in my life now since first sending a street signal. Thank you!!!

Brooklyn Street Art: Are you working on ideas for your next show?
Infinity: There are a couple cool ELC + friends shows in the works for next year which I am really excited about. Abe Lincoln Jr,! Royce Bannon! Anera! Kickin’ ass! Then in January there is the AdHoc/ThinkSpace group show in Los Angeles which we are all in too. I also am working on a game composition or the visual arts called TRIDENT. It’s a creation strategy for a quartet of painters based on cue cards, dice and a timer. The cards are a comprehensive system categorizing all aspects of the creative process. This system creates an authority-and-ego-free environment of inspiration and collaboration. I hope to finish the piece soon and start rehearsals, but who knows because I’ve been sayin that for two years now! I also have a solo game piece that I hope to perform which I haven’t done since 2006.

The exhibition opens Friday November 14 at Factory Fresh Gallery and in addition to tackling the whole space, check out the special performances in the back yard.
