Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Bast, ChrisRWK, Creepy, ECB, OverUnder, Peeta, Ress Arts, REVS, RID, RWK, VengRWK, and YOK.
Veng and Chris from RWK gathered their paint tools and called a couple of their friends over to hang out and paint on their spot in Bushwick, BK. The results have been like chocolate and peanut butter together – you are not sure how it works, but it does. Overunder, ECB, Peeta and Never collaborated on this brand new wall, still in progress.

Hello, I’m looking for da right kitchen. OverUnder re-creates pull-down grates commonly seen around the city after businesses close for the night, or because of the recession. After arranging them in a cluster, graffiti tags and pieces are applied in a mind-twisting reinvention with random human limbs sprouting out. We’re not smart enough to know what he’s getting at, and Veng’s character is keeping tight lipped about it. Veng of RWK and Overunder. Detail. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Nothing that a coat of paint couldn’t help. We had previously published this REVS sculpture but someone gave it a new fresh coat of paint for the spring. REVS is looking pretty sharp and full of hope these days. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Parts of 5 Pointz have gotten slap happy. Notice the large sticker robot made of stickers by RID. The plea to “Save 5 Ptz” refers to this hallowed block-long spot that is slated for development by it’s owner. (photo © Jaime Rojo)
