It’s the Dog Days of Summer and there are a lot of cool cats on the street right now.
Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Adam Fujita, Be Everything, Che Man, Clint Mario, Dan Witz, E.L.K. Icy & Sot, Ishmael, JR, Kenny Scharf, LMNOPI, Mika, Mike Makatron, Rusebk, Sabio, Solus, Sweet Toof, and You Go Girl!

Vivache has created “Che Man” and has mounted this message in San Francisco, Oakland, Cambridge, and now Bushwick Brooklyn with this Pak Man inspired solution to world ills. This Bushwick spot was up only two days before it was buffed over in green again, presumably because the message rubbed someone the wrong way. (photo © Jaime Rojo)
