Images of the Week: 03.24.13

March 21 hit us this week and that means Spring and that means more birds, flowers, sidewalk sales, thigh-high shorts, and Street Art and graffiti are on their way! Great to find this new brick wall falling apart by Aakash Nahalini in the subway this week, and then to learn that it is a sketch for future ideas. Also we’re on the look out for a new sculptural Faile tribute to Revs somewhere on NYC streets, and you might have seen a few new bird houses from XAM. Aside from some of the regular players, you can be sure there are some new kids on the block because this form of expression continues to expand and whether its a one-off, or the start of a long career, the street continues to inspire artists to get their stuff out there and skip the proscribed route.

Meanwhile, here’s our weekly interview of the street, this week featuring Aakash Nihalani, Ayatollax, Bast, Be Super, David Gouny, El Sol 25, Foxx Face, and Oculo.
