Our weekly interview with the street narrows this week to show you photos of a visit to Brooklyn from French Street Artist “The Dude Company” and a cool shot of Lister at the end.

A glorious autumn day and room to experiment a bit on a rooftop in Brooklyn. BSA invited The Dude Co. to put up an installation on a rooftop in Brooklyn and he happily and giddily obliged.  The space was open to his interpretation and he decided to try out a repetition across the middle expanse as tribute to one of the best American actresses this country has given to the world, Gena Rowlands, who turned 80 this summer.

The repetition of her head in the installation is a nod to her depiction of a person unglued and in turmoil as her life swirls nervously beyond her control; Rolands’ emotional, Academy Award-Nominated performance in the movie “A Woman Under The Influence” in 1974, directed by her husband John Cassavetes?

Providing a bookend effect are his skater boy (created from a photo by Brooklyn artist Carlito Brigante) from earlier this year and an old favorite, his stencil of singer Erikah Badu.

And to end this week’s selection we offer a bonus image of a Lister we found while window shopping in Manhattan. Think there were some masks by the artist inside too.
