Welcome to BSA Images of the Week!

There are always so many hype-dope-cool-rad-slaps things to do in New York period – and often plenty graffiti and street art options. There’s the new Remembering Bast show with 26 new paintings by the street artist at Allouche, the new Cope2-Dr. Revolt-Tkid-Martha Cooper show at Outlaw Arts, the ongoing King Pleasure Basquiat show, yet another Banksy exhibition, the 60 Collective Art show in DUMBO is still up for another week, the new mural by Os Gemeos and Futura at the Cardoza High School in Queens…. Speaking of Futura, the organization whom we first brought street art to in 2008/2010 with two benefit auctions – Free Arts NYC – this week raised more money from the street art/graffiti community and their fans with a special honorary event for Futura. We’re glad BSA spearheaded that relationship to help this arts organization immersed in the street art scene all those years ago.

Just for fun, here’s a list of the artists we brought to that first auction in April 2008 – any of them sound familiar? Anera, Armsrock, Borf, Celso, C.Damage, DAIN, Dark Clouds, Deeks, DiRQuo, Elbowtoe, ELC, Fauxreel, Flower Face Killah, Gaia, GoreB, Haculla, Infinity, Judith Supine, Jp, McMutt, MOMO, Noah Sparkes, Royce Bannon, Skewville, Swoon, Dan Witz, and WK Interact.

How many of these names are still in the game? Some have faded, some have accelerated, and there are many new names bandied about on New York streets; It’s a constantly changing tableau.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring: Matt Siren, City Kitty, Hijack, Li-Hill, Raddington Falls, Rose Cory, HOACS, Voxx Romana, Jet, Nite Owl, HEFS, and HAVOC.
