BREAKING: Faile and Bäst in Action

Fresh Images of Two of Brooklyn’s Best Known Getting Up

BSA caught up with the Brooklyn Street Artists Bäst and the Faile Collective on a snowy, pretty and serene Saturday morning on the streets of the People’s Republic of Brooklyn. While the artists assiduously jockeyed with ladders and stencils and paint on the sidewalk, the late waking Williamsburg morning unfolded around them. Friends and family stopped by to say hello, surprised passersby snapped photos, and a rumpled dog walker stole a glance while yanked down the street by his master.  The 16 foot high industrial doorway is still damp with a panoply of pop/pulp/consumer culture images and text integrating recent graphic images seen from Faile paired with witty references to their buddy and longtime collaborateur Bäst. One of their largest recent installations, the new blast of monochrome stencil posters are sprayed on rough rectangular patches of white, arranged salon style in this brand new gallery of the street.
