From photographer Vincent Cornelli comes this fun collection of images from last nights opening of “All Shook Up”, Jef Aerosol’s opening at Ad Hoc/Eastern District in Bushwick, Brooklyn, curated by Brooklyn Street Art. A steady crowd carried through the evening to check out the new pieces and to meet the artist in person.
Jef strikes a pose in front of his giant canvas, a reprise of his mural of Jean-Michel Basquiat that he did on a rooftop in Brooklyn last week. Etched into Basquiat's eyebrow is the word "Brooklyn". (photo © Vincent Cornelli)
Classic muses of Jef's 30 year love affair with stencils were infused with new blood by Brooklyn-based icons like Jay-Z and M.I.A., graffiti legend Dondi White, and street art photographer Luna Park (who was in attendance). A new piece on wood (the smiling boy) was a benefit for Haiti. (photo © Vincent Cornelli)
A man of the people, Aerosol made sure to include smaller affordable pieces for fans (John Lee Hooker and Jimi Hendrix in foreground) just in front of this New York Warhol Factory/ Punk scene grouping - including Iggy Pop, John Cage, Sid Vicious, Lou Reed, and the Ramones. He also did a small 10 piece Basquiat edition for the show (think there are a few left). (photo © Vincent Cornelli)
