BSA Special Feature: Auckland’s Al Fresco Festival
A fresh look at Al Fresco and the pentameter of motion here as New Zealands own public/private community based street art festival came back for its second iteration this May. A nicely polished piece like this is the product of a lot of work, inspiration, and organizing and a shout out to Ross Liew and the Cut Collective and Cleo Barnett for good work.
Where The Food Grows by Noah Throop
“Having the hens on fresh pasture lets them express their chicken-ness”
Usually on our Film Friday section we include one short film or video not related to Street Art, Graffiti or Urban Art. Often it is a video to welcome the weekend and cheer you up with some silly, fun content. This time we’d like to share with you a short film about FOOD. Food right? Well food is a very complex topic, from what we eat to where we eat to where the food is grown and how it reaches our tables and eventually our mouths. At at time when small family farming is almost gone from our modern production of food and some city neighborhoods can’t even get access to a grocery store, here is a documentary portrait of a small family farm in Byron Bay, NSW Australia. It’s worth a conversation about where the food grows.
Herakut: You Are A Marvel. From LeBasse Projects
“We must all work to make the world worthy of it’s children.”
Agreed. By the way, Herakut is a marvel.
Pils – Automotywacja (Motivation)
Legal or illegal, dudes are still painting man. Remember all those trains back in the day NYC? This is Polish rapper Pils singing about motivation in 2014, yo. Maybe he is in Rzeszów?
Disclaimer: we don’t know what the lyrics are saying so if there’s a swear word, sorry.
Rowdy – “Black Cab To Rehab” by Creative Urban Industries
And finally, a crocodile cartoon that will remind you of New York traffic.
