In between snow storms, there has been some Street Art and graff to be seen this week, and not surprisingly, some of it is surprising (see the Tupac/Rosselli mashup).
We had the great honor of hiking up, over, and around the crunchy white / grey / black Brooklyn Appalachian snow mountains that now clog our sidewalks along with a few visiting Afghani graffiti/Street Artists when the temperature was about 15 degrees. No mountain goats encountered although a couple of trucks almost mowed us down. The guest didn’t mind because it’s freaking cold back in Kabul too. More on that visit soon.
Also if you didn’t see the announcement this week Swoon and BSA are going to be at the Brooklyn Museum in April. Hope you can make it!
Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Adek, Ainac, Broke M.C., BTM.14, Cartoon Bacon, Cruz, Enzo & Nio, Kai, Lewy, See, Seedr, Skount, and UFO907.
