Images of the Week: 04.28.13

This week was a cool in NYC not just because JR and his minions were plastering faces all over the pavement in Times Square but because a couple of Brooklyn Street Artists, who were early on the current scene had their first introduction into the Brooklyn Museum for the Annual Artists Ball. FAILE created a custom 40 foot long table for guests, replete with their iconic spinning prayer wheels atop for the donors to the museum. It was good to see Patrick and Patrick were just a table away from graffiti/fine artist Jose Parla, who knocked out his own giant piece for people to eat off of. They say you sometimes have to go to foreign lands to get the recognition your work merits but in this case it’s gratifying to see a celebration of some hometown Street Art talent that continues to influence the scene.

Here’s our weekly interview of the street, this week featuring B.D. White, Be Super, Bitch, Brad Robson, Dain, Dee Dee, Gaia, GMO Killiz, GumShoe, JJ Veronis, Mr. Toll, ND’A, Rene Gagnon, Robert Janz, and Sno.
