October 2009



Itinerrance Gallery opened its location in the 13th arrondissement in 2004. Close to the Grande Bibliothèque and to the Frigos, it fits in an urban area that is economically and culturally growing.

With referential street art exhibitions to its credit – such as Berlin based Evol & Pisa73 in 2008, YZ Open Your Eyes, Marko 93, Seize Happy Wallmaker and recently the Franco-Austrian Jana & Js – and an exceptionnal space – 130 meters square, 7 meters high, and rough concrete walls – Itinerrance Gallery has got everything to succeed and become a must-see place in Paris.

Partnering with Samantha Longhi of Stencil History X for its programming, Itinerrance Gallery is now positioned in the field of street art exclusively and stencil art in particular. Chic’n’stencil opens the 2009-2010 new season that will see the international passage of major artists such as Belgian Roa, American Logan Hicks, Italian Sten & Lex, Polish M-City, or French C215, who toured the world, both in the streets and in galleries.


November 5, –  December 5, 2009
Opening November 5 from 6 pm

Far from the 80’s, stencil art is now various. Chic that is so late 2000’s distinguishes the artists featured in this exhibition. Elegant and glamorous like Zalez and Tian, delicacy in the Japan world of Stew, and the mystery of the Betty Baron‘s wheatpastings combine aesthetics with architectural lines of the Polish duo Monstfur and with the gentle poetry of based Vancouver Indigo.

Brooklyn Street Art: Halloween Prep and Friday Fun

It’s that time of the year kids! You know what tomorrow is, right?

Where the Wild Things Are

Some Brooklyn kids (ages 4-54) are “getting their HOWWEEN on” starting tonight even though the All Hallows Eve is not until tomorrow. In fact morning rush hour today featured more freaks than usual on the train, so I’m guessing there are a lot of office parties this afternoon. This weekend the streets are going to be crammed with Ghosts, Witches, Shreks, Wild Things, Sexy Nurses, Tea Baggers, Chewbaccas, Balloon Boys, and drag queen Ann Coulters.

My buddy Justin, who’s actually a fashion photographer and cashier at a 99 cent store is re-cycling his Lumberjack/World Wresting Foundation Fan costume from last year and adding a Pabst Blue Ribbon can for a Crunchy Hipster costume – I think the camo-cap will be totally awesome!

I’m thinking of going out as  Sean Connery in the movie Zardoz.

The New York City local Office of Homeland Insecurity has put of these helpful safety guidelines for Trick-Or-Treaters this year, and as a public service we are posting them here.

  1. Cover your entire costume with bright orange reflective tape for safety purposes. Cars should be able to see you before they even take their exit off the BQE.
  2. Submerge your entire costume in a bathtub of flame-retardant before putting on.
  3. Throw all treats directly in the garbage cans on the corner provided by NYC Sanitation. You never know if they’ve been tampered with. When you return home you can eat the treats you bought in an approved chain drugstore.
  4. Do not cross any streets. Drivers are very dangerous.
  5. Walk in groups of 10 or more, all of you armed.
  6. Illuminate your entrance with klieg lights for the safety of your guests.
  7. Instead of dangerous candles in your jack-o-lantern, why not try klieg lights?
  8. Plan your trick-or-treating trip in advance and create a map and exact schedule. Then deliver it to your local police precinct and review it with an officer who will be on duty during that time.
  9. Avoid people in costumes. You don’t know who they are.
  10. Be Safe and Have Fun!

Here’s an Indian “Thriller” to Get You In the Mood.

Enjoy this Halloween Weekend, there are only a couple more before the Earth is consumed in fire, locusts, and swine flu.

Guest Artist Mundano – The Differences between Brooklyn and Brooklin


Last week we told you about the work of Mundano, a Brazilian street artist who recently was in a show in Brooklyn.

We were so enamored with the idea of another BKLYN, as cheesy as that may sound to you, that we wanted to know more about our cousin on the Tropic of Capricorn.  So we started asking Mundano what it’s like there, how’s it similar, how’s it different, and what about the street art there.

This week Mundano comes back to talk to us about his neighborhood in the largest city in Brazil, São Paulo.  Before he get’s going lemme tell you that according to my very professional online research — NYC sold São Paulo some old trolley cars in the 1930’s for the city’s rail system.  And guess what name was emblazoned across the front of the front car?  Brooklyn.  So people started calling the neighborhood at the end of the trolley line by that name! I don’t know how accurate this is, but it sounds good.

And now, onto our guest to talk about similarities and differences between the two BK’s. 

Sit down and get ready for some skooling! Oh, you already are sitting down.


Below is Mundano’s article about Brooklin & Brooklyn;

The Brazilian Brooklin was named after the American Brooklyn but ours is spelled with an “i”.  The neighborhood here is mostly residential, but in the last 10 years the area has grown really fast, and now it’s also got a big financial center with high modern office buildings.

One signal of this fast growth is that the goverment is kicking our favela (slum) that was here before to another place.  Basically they are trying to “clean up” the area – as if moving the poorest people to a different area was a real solution to the problem.

The similarities between both of the BKs are that they both have a river and a great bridge that goes across it and both have a great deal of street art.

The bridge called Ponte Octavio Frias de Oliveira in Sao Paulo

The differences of the street art scene here and there is that here we have the “pixaçao” which is really aggressive and fast writing, so the population started to see graffiti as a solution for that.  Pixaçao

Here is a picture with a style of graffiti called Pixação

Because of that you can get authorized walls to paint on.  Also, here we use much more housepaint than spray, because of the expensive price of a spray can.

Other thing is that here we have different references of culture so in a neighborhood like Brooklin you can see a great variety of grafitti styles, but here the “street law” is don’t paint over another graffiti or pixação.

This is an example of conversations on the street between graff writers.

On the other hand, the NY Brooklyn has a lot of things that we don’t see here, like lots of tags and bombs on cars, the interaction between the artists on the streets.

Also there are a lot of paste-ups and 3-D installations in Brooklyn. That is rare here.

And here Mundano speaks about his video:

This is my first timelapse video and the idea started in a bar table with some friends one day before the action. I really like how it came out because its possible to see the entire process and also the people walking there, the cars and all.

I painted the lips with a big brush and housepaint and all the rest was painted with spray paint. The gate is near by the end of the Av. Paulista, the most well known avenue of São Paulo. I´m really happy that my creature is still there watching the people and the problems of the city, and also turning the streets more colorful!

Thank you to Mundano for taking the time and making the effort to educate his Brooklyn peeps about his neighborhood called Brooklin. A special thank you to his girlfriend Camila, who helped with the text translation, and who also appears in the video.

How to Blow Yourself Up? WK Interact Has Ideas

How to Blow Yourself Up? WK Interact Has Ideas


Street artists are often in tune with the subterraneal rhythms of the city, its people, the movements: the psyche.  Their affinity for the wild unscripted truths that pop up asymmetrically as a normal course of everyday working in the streets makes them better positioned to divine the messages.

Can I help you with something? (image WK Interact)

Can I help you with something? (image WK Interact)

WK Interact’s new show “How To Blow Yourself Up” addresses the unspoken fear always lurking in our unspoken New York day; dark wire fears strummed by Orange Alerts a few years ago, the smell of acrid smoke in the subway, the installation of thousands of cameras all over Manhattan, and “entertainment” like “2012”, a disaster film based on end-time prophecies of ancient religions where the world suffers cataclysmically.

If only WK was trying to calm your fear.


Hey dudes, is this what you mean by Half-Pipe? (image WK Interact)

Maybe, instead, he is merely calling the bluff of the fatalists by wrapping it around a copper coil of twisted irony.  Maybe he is giving you the means of your own self-destruction so you will feel self-empowered! It’s so hard to tell.

The show opening November 7th at Subliminal Projects gallery in L.A. turns friendly accessible objects you might associate with fun into blunt devices of nihilistic doom.  It used to be fun when you saw this stuff on “Mission Impossible”, but when you personally see a skateboard equipped with what appears to be a pipe bomb, your blood can turn cold.

He knows that.

He’s added a dash of color to his typical black and white, but it’s not for whimsy. Think of police tape, hazmat suits, 9-Mile Point blinking red alarm lights. Cheery.

WK helped BSA understand more about his new show:

WK takes a moment to reflect on destruction. (image Adam Wallacavage)

Brooklyn Street Art: First, about the name of the show…How alarming!  Are you encouraging people to self-detonate?
WK Interactive: We are all wired with our very own internal detonators. The artificial devices, which I provide, are to encourage individuals who find themselves applicable to the scenarios to reflect on their state of affairs, which may bring them to the point of pressing the buttons.

Brooklyn Street Art: As a New Yorker, it is very thoughtful of you to create explosive devices for people who are the move!
WK Interactive: They are also figurative symbols of age, authority or subjection and social position.



Objects on the way to LA for an explosive show (image WK Interact)

Brooklyn Street Art: Lets see now, you have skateboards, bicycles; do you have a nice exploding car? Those are always popular.
WK Interactive: The goal was to keep it economically viable.

Brooklyn Street Art: Some of these pieces look tempting to touch, but I’m afraid my hand might blow off.
WK Interactive: By all means – touch………



Pop a wheelie!  (image WK Interact)

Brooklyn Street Art: On the streets of New York, you use almost exclusively black and white. Do you feel more colorful behind closed doors?
WK Interactive: The colors used are all primary and ironically relevant in conveying the importance of the objects in the pieces, for example Police Blue and Dynamite Red.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>     >>  > >>   >>>>

Oh, the guy’s a real cut-up! The more you try to nail him down, the better he is at evading you. So maybe we should just embrace the chaos, and realize WK is only reflecting back to us what we already knew.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow: Public Advertising and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow: Public Advertising and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Brooklyn streets had a whole lot of blank white space on Sunday.  Big rectangles of white were staring at people on Bedford Avenue as the sidewalks filled with locals and vendors.


Tabula Rasa

The sparkling noon-time sun felt a little eerie as bed-headed late-night revelers and smartly dressed church-goers poured out to the street to see that the advertising billboards were bare.

Honey, I don't know what shampoo to buy! (photo Steven P. Harrington)

Honey, I don’t know what shampoo to buy. Help!

Both the heavily sprayed set-n-teased church ladies and the brightly hued Rayban wearing hipsters turned and looked at the openness, not quite registering what looked strange. They tried to remember what was there before, and walked on. One of the new professionals clutched a coffee mug and made harried phone calls.

Of course it was only a short time before those ghosted quadrilaterals began to look like canvasses to enterprising artists and by late afternoon the normally buzzing neighborhood was augmented by speedily created art on the billboards.  Artists and their friends looked a little nervous and very pleased as they completed the takeover of illegal advertising spaces all over the once-bohemian territory.

The billboards are considered illegal because they are placed on walls without permission of the City agencies that regulate outdoor advertisements in New York, according to the Public Ad Campaign and a growing number of community and arts groups who are drawing attention to it.   According to the criticisms leveled at OOH (Out Of Home) advertisers, the process for controlling the quantity and location of these advertising messages is almost completely without civic voice, and the penalties, if any, are so nominal that they are considered part of overhead expenses for the companies.  In short, goes the argument, the voice of the people is being drowned out by money.


Yellow bulldozers in the patch, and a big crane against a white sky. I think I need one of those explanation labels please.

In fact, the evidence of advertisers deep pockets may be revealed in the expeditious re-postering that took place within hours, sometimes minutes, of the billboards city-wide on Sunday.  Various news accounts report about 100 (of an estimated 5,000) billboards were converted by volunteers and quickly re-claimed by advertisers, and that 5 arrests were made for unspecified violations. We didn’t see that kind of action in this neighborhood at all.

As recently as Monday night however, one set of billboards in Williamsburg were yet to be re-postered.  Ironically the artist message on the signs were predictive – multicolored letters comprised of commercial paint chips spelling out the words, “Here Today” and “Gone Tomorrow”.

A simple message.

A simple blurry message caught from a bicyle.

Aside from the legal, ethical, and aesthetic aspects of the events, the feeling on the street was pretty much “business as usual” with the additional feature of live art performance on a Sunday afternoon. We spoiled New Yorkers are feted to live street performance on a pretty regular basis, whether it is musicians in the subway, break dancers in the park, or newly minted street artists laboring on a big blank billboard.

An artist identified as Putu paints.

An artist identified as Putu paints.

As is the absolute norm today, many pictures were taken by pedestrians with a myriad of personal electronic devices, and many artists were engaged briefly by questions and compliments.

While trouble was reported elsewhere in the city with conflict between artists and the poster company employees, this little nook of Brooklyn known for a vibrant artist community had only one reported inquiry from two passing police officers. According to the artist, luck was on his side as the officers expressed appreciation for his work and continued down the street.

Kenny Aquiles, a performance artist by profession, blocked out in yellow a large portion of the billboard with a canary yellow paint, articulating a silhouette of a cityscape of some sort across the top.  Then with large tipped black marker in hand he rapidly printed sentences from canvas edge to edge, a wandering rant about grilled cheese sandwiches interrupted only by a him sprinting back to the other end of the billboard to continue.

BSA walked by after the first sentence and a half were complete and while he raced back and forth writing, trying not to fall down the steps, we immediately thought of those game shows where contestants race through a grocery store to win prizes.  Well located, Kenny was performing on the high-profile stage of the Bedford and North 7th subway entrance, with a steady stream of subway riders washing up and down the stairway behind him, sometimes stopping to take photos or discuss with other audience members gathered. Most people just watched to see what the story he was writing would turn out to be.

After he was finished we asked him some questions to better understand what was going on.

Brooklyn Street Art: It looks like you are a more traditional writer, rather than a graffiti “writer”. Can you talk about what you usually do to make art?
Kenny: I like to make stories about things I like.  I know that may not be the most profound artist statement, but I try to not to make writing/art that revolves around snark and sarcasm. Most of my current work on the writing end is just writing over-drawn essays on things that made me feel safe on Saturday mornings as a child. Like cartoons, chocolate milk, and grilled cheese.

um, what?

Um, what? See below for a full-transcript.

Brooklyn Street Art: What is this text about, and what inspired it?
Kenny: Well, the topic of this particular story was grilled cheese sandwiches. I had already written a short story revolving around grilled cheese, but recent events like my failed attempt to eat 20 in one sitting and my on-the-fly decision to buy bright yellow paint made me want to improvise something.  It was just a lot more fun.

Brooklyn Street Art: As you were creating this piece, it looked like a stream of consciousness, occasionally interrupted by street noise and running from one end of the mural to the other.
Kenny: I studied ‘Improv’ for a few years and I also do a lot of performance art where fluid monologues are essential.  The limited space (17 feet wide by 8 feet long), people gathering as they exit the subway station, the occasional person yelling “what are you doing, Mister ?,” and of course the fear of being arrested (I don’t look good in cuffs), put me in a very different writing state than usual. Usually I’m hanging at a coffee shop typing on my laptop, which is a different vibe.

Brooklyn Street Art: What interested you in being involved with this project?
Kenny: I’m usually highly skeptical towards activists etc, but this project has a personal stake, that being the city I live in and love. I’m by no means an ‘adbuster’ or  anti-capitalist leftist. I actually work within the advertising world and here’s a secret – a lot of higher profile people involved in this project do too.  I’m no spokesperson for NYSAT, but I do know what the NPA (the advertising company) do is illegal, and straight up ugly.

Teetering on the edge of a debate over legality.

Teetering on the edge of a debate over legality.

Brooklyn Street Art: What surprised you about this experience?
Kenny: I was half way done with my story, then two officers stopped to watch the small crowd that gathered.  They eventually leaned in on the subway entrance and exclaimed “Excuse me sir, do you have a permit for what you’re doing ?” They asked me to step down from the ledge then asked me for identification. Turns out I got the one sympathetic officer who went to SVA. He simply told me to hurry up and enjoy the rest of my day. I wish I was making this up …

Brooklyn Street Art: Are you doing any interesting projects in the near future?
Kenny: My friend Jessee and I write experimental comedy shows and perform them the last Thursday of every month at Hugs on N6th street but on a street-level, probably not, since there aren’t that many wide open spaces where I can uninterruptedly scrawl 400 words.

Kenny emailed us the entire text, which we paste here:

Too much text to paste here but basically the author/performer recounts a contest with a friend where he tried to eat 20 grilled cheese sandwiches but barfed after 15 and blew a blood vessel in his eye.


This second “intervention” by the Public Ad Campaign may have had a small impact, if any, on the pedestrians on the street, as few interviewed were aware of what was happening or why.  What makes the actions a hard sell for some is that the takeovers themselves may be considered “illegal”, even as their purpose is to draw attention to “illegal” business behavior.  All things considered, this seems a pretty harmless stunt that aims to raise awareness through subsequent retelling of the story.  What impact the Public Ad Campaign will have on the permitting process for outdoor advertising continues to unfold as more people weigh in the discussion.

“You’re Not in Kansas Anymore”, says Skewville

Down in the dank dingy dirty tunnels my sense of direction is effectively erased by the screeching noise of the trains hurtling over century-old tracks, the disembodied robot women scatting on the P.A. system,  and those colorful ads for the Dr. Zitzmore dermatology disaster recovery clinic.

This happens to tourists and 1st semester college kids almost every time they come upstairs to the street from the subway. They don’t know east from west, north from south, Harlem from the Village, Carnarsie from Sunnyside, Bedford from St. Marks Place – you have to look around to see signs and re-set the internal compass.

Isn't this the Williamsburg Industrial Neighborhood? Skewville says no.
Isn’t this the Williamsburg Industrial Neighborhood?

This Skewville looking sign recently appeared in the run-down garbage-strewn lot next to this subway entrance, which may be the only welcoming sign on the block.

Of course there still could be someone lurking in the bushes waiting to mug you – the property has been ignored so long that weeds are now trees.  But at least when you glance up you will know what neighborhood you were robbed in.

“Grand Champions” Tonight, “This Beat is Sick” Tomorrow: IN Brooklyn

Hellbent and Slept in the backyard at Factory Fresh for the "Grand Champions" Show tonight.
Hellbent and Slept did some fun in the backyard at Factory Fresh for the “Grand Champions” Show tonight. We made it into our own special sign, it doesn’t really look like this exactly.

Friday is traditionally a day to look really busy first thing in the morning, up until, say, NOON, and then start to think about what the hell you are going to wear to go out tonight to see street/graff/public art in Brooklyn.  Hookin up a LOOK for tonight ma!

You might like this one – fine artist and graff writer John Breiner presents the third installment of this group of grand champions since 2003, and it’s incredible to see how young artists mature in their work over time. Many in the show are known on the street as graff/street artists and naturally have continued to refine and explore their artistic abilities, now including what can roundly be described as fine art in a multitude of disciplines.  The labels don’t really matter of course, the talent does.  No doubt this happy reunion at Factory Fresh is going to be pumping with energy and excitement tonight.

Saturday Night Bushwick Open Late “This Beat is Sick” features 9 spaces

including the Opening of new gallery “Famous Accountants”

Bushwick is still wildly alive with people who create – and it hasn’t been blanded yet; still too dicey, too ethnic, and like, there isn’t even bottle service. Unless you bring it in a paper bag.

New space Famous Accountants straddles the edge of Bushwick in Ridgewood, as if poised to run for it. Saturday they open with “Twenty-Three”. A shared work/gallery space run by artists Ellen Letcher and Kevin Regan who were part of the now-closed Pocket Utopia on Flushing Ave, the new space is not looking for a hook to be cool, which is so cool.

They’re also planning TV Parties! – inspired by the lampooning of apathetic consumer culture expressed in the classic Black Flag song:

Saturday night’s opening will be in conjunction with Norte Maar’s THIS BEAT IS SICK: Bushwick Art Spaces Stay Open Late.

In conjuction with Norte Maar, a cornerstone in-home gallery that's been pushing the envelope for a few years with In Window performance that you can see from the sidewalk, among other things.
In conjunction with Norte Maar, a Bushwick cornerstone in-home gallery run by Jason Andrew that’s been pushing the envelope for a few years with in-window performance that you can see from the sidewalk, and art classes for local kids and BushwickImpact.org.

Participating spaces include: Norte Maar, English Kills, Centotto, Factory Fresh, Grace Exhibition Space, Laundromat, Lumenhouse, PrivateerSugar, and  Famous Accountants.
