10 Wishes for 2010, #7, Jef Aerosol

For ten days we’re presenting ten artists and their wishes for the new year, 2010, in no particular order.  Together, they are a tiny snapshot of the people who are part of the giant explosion of street art in New York.  Individually, each has added their expression of the creative spirit to the decade now ending.

Today’s wish comes from Jef Aerosol, who painted his first stencil in 1982 and is widely credited as being one of the original street artists in Paris, along with artists like Blek Le Rat and Miss Tic. January 2010 brings him to New York for “All Shook Up”, a powerful new solo show of cultural icons at Ad Hoc in Brooklyn.

“I wish one very simple thing : let’s all open our eyes and realize once and for good that all human beings on earth are brothers and sisters…
You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one !”
