BSA Special Feature: INTI / “PRIMAVERA INSURRECTA”, Spring Insurrection

From vandalizing public sculptures to handmade signs to waving banners, banging oil drums and pots and pans, lighting fires, chanting, and dancing in the streets – these are the insistent voices and perspectives coursing through streets in cities around the world, including these scenes from Chile last month. In one of the tales of people’s victory, these marches and mobilizations of citizens pushing for their rights and fighting state overreach actually worked this month and Chile’s protesters have won a path to a new constitution.

During the demonstrations Chilean Street Artist INTI was at work outside in Santiago as well, adding to the public discourse, with his new work entitled “Dignity!” It was a spring insurrection, now culminating in an autumn victory.

“Both the title and the elements that dress the female figure changed according to the pulse of chaos and civil disobedience that we experienced during the first days of mobilization, which was followed by a carnival of social demands that awaited the moment of becoming all one,” he says. You see the belted figure wearing symbols of resistance, destruction, construction; bullets, frying pan, boxing gloves, a hammer, a Chilean doll. The turtleneck holds the galaxy, an acoustic guitar at the back.

“Dignity!” is what people shouted. “A shout that, had it not been accompanied by insurrection, would never have been heard,” INTI says. “A shout represented in fighting tools, and our demands in a utopian vision of the new Chile.”

"PRIMAVERA INSURRECTA"

Sofles VS Rasko / Graffiti Kings 2019

Jake Anderson offers this compilation of two current Kings – Sofles and Rasko. “Two of the best graffiti artists i’ve witnessed. Not meant to be a competition, more of a comparison of two artist doing their thing.”

Adry del Rocio at Berlin Mural Art Festival 2019

Mexican muralist Adry del Rocio came to the Berlin Mural Festival this year. Known for her 3-D perspective painting (along with some Magic Realism from her home culture) del Rocio talks to the camera as she paints, relating stories about her childhood and her mother.

“I started very young. From four years old I won my first art contest. My mother always loved art. I admire her because she always has had this vision to push us.”

Even when del Rocio was discouraged by people who advised her to pursue another line of career, her mother’s advice what quite different. “Don’t listen to those people. You want to paint? You paint.”

Between Street And Art: A Documentary About Meeting Of Styles / Germany 2019

“Meeting of Styles is an international graffiti and street art festival that takes place in different parts of the globe. In its core it is a celebration of art, creativity and the spirit of community found in the street art scene. This year we went to the Meeting of Styles in Wiesbaden, Germany and had the opportunity to speak with some great creative minds and artists.” – from Eight Pixel Productions.

Now screening :
1. “Graffiti Rock” Hip Hop TV
2. JR and the “Tehachapi Project”
3. PICHIAVO – Esplugues de Llobregat
4. Walala Pump & Go in Arkansas

BSA Special Feature: “Graffiti Rock” Hip Hop TV

The year was 1984. “Subway Art” was fresh on the bookshelves and “Style Wars” had just been aired on PBS and won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, and “Wild Style” had shown in sticky Times Square. With ascendant music stars like Grandmaster Flash and The Cold Crush Brothers rocking mics at the clubs, Blondie bringing Basquiat and Fab Five Freddy to MTV and Rock Steady Crew commanding all the competition, MCing, turntablism, graffiti and b-boying were making serious inroads into popular culture across the US and into Europe.

Enter showman and empresario Michael Hollman with a fresh idea for Hip-Hop TV that would inherit the mantle from teen dance shows of previous decades. Highly produced and rehearsed, the spontaneous looking show featured all the elements you could dream of; fly fashion, phat laces, Adidas, Kangol, a scratching lesson, Jam Master J and Run DMC battling with Special K and Cool Moe D, New York City Breakers, graffiti artist “Brim” Fuentes with the smooth disco song stylings of Shannon.

“Graffiti Rock” held everything in its hands in that moment in June when it aired, and even though the show couldn’t continue, it’s a shining beacon of triumph, empowerment and promise for the positive scene that had evolved around youth in cities like New York that gave it agency. A primer on a scene, it was so dense that you could think of this as skool, fool.

JR and the “Tehachapi Project” (Trailer)

No mention of the feckless politicians paid on the side by for-profit prisons to trample justice and capture bodies for beds, but here JR ventures inside prisons to talk about humans caught inside a system of prisons that few in the media even bother with anymore.

PICHIAVO – Esplugues de Llobregat / Video by Marta Romero

Great attitudes, European idealized classical images of women, colorful graffiti tags layered and dancing around and above your head; It’s a winning combination for Street Art duo Pichiavo, who have been on a tear around the world painting ever larger commercial walls for the last five years wherever you look. Here are two recent videos created by one of their more recent clients, a real estate investment and development company headquartered in Madrid and Lisbon.

Walala Pump & Go in Arkansas

The creative agency Justkids produced a new project in Fort Smith, Arkansas this month by rehabilitating a bit of urban blight with “eclectic tribal pop” from French artist Camille Walala. The best part? When you paint this gas station with vibrant geometry you can name it after yourself. Just call it “Walala Pump and Go”.

BSA Special Feature: “AfroGrafiteiras” featuring Andrea Bak

AfroGrafiteiras is an urban art training project focused on the expression and promotion of the leading role of Afro-Brazilian women in activity since 2015.

Here in Episode 6 we get to see the bright mind of Andrea Bak as she talks about this Rio-based program that examines identity, society, tradition, and empowerment through the aerosol can.

Magda Cwik / Hotel 128 / Street Art City in France. Via After Hours Project

Check into the abandoned Hotel 128 in Lurcy-Lévis, France and you’ll find a stunning array of portals to worlds customized by Street Artists. Here’s the latest one, Room 108, painted by Magda Cwik.

INDECLINE Presents: The Bird Box

A quick commercial or not? Hacking the consumer system by re-cycling a new scooter craze into something useful for the homeless, who are now legion in LA? Either way it’s INDECLINE, who will literally tell you anything as long as you keep watching.

INDECLINE Presents: Trumpster Fire

You see the dumpster with Trump’s face on it, and you know what’s next. Thank you for completing the visual allegory that many have imagined.

Mura Masa – Deal Wiv It with slowthai

And now something new from the “No-Hope” generation. Back with his friend Slowthai, it’s a pop-locky-pock-marked-futility-fueled screed leading us into the weekend. Also, there is hope here.

BSA Special Feature: Paradox and CPT. OLF and Daredevilry in Berlin

In the videos featuring daredevilry, parkour and graffiti the Lengua Drona has been adding words to our visual vocabulary that were once reserved for extreme sporting, National Geographic docs, Crocodile Dundee and James Bond.

Now the pixação writer and urban climber, Paradox releases unprecedented adventure footage and editing from photographer CPT. Olf, and its sending shockwaves.

Somehow this is a new way to synthesize wall-climbing and train surfing; positioning it as a visual and audio symphony that almost makes you forget that these are graffiti vandals “fucking the system”, pushing their limits – and yours.

As you thrill to these evolving genre-combining aspects of Oleg Cricket, 1Up Crew, Berlin Kidz, and Ang Lee, it’s important to realize that these are real risks that people take that could result in serious injury, death, and rivers of grief if a miscalculation happens. So, yeah, we’re not endorsing the irresponsible risks or a mounting “arms race” of stunts, but we are endorsing the athleticism, imagination, and sheer slickness of this FPV drone mastery, which appears to have taken this stuff up another level.

Hold tight.

Currently Paradox is on exhibition at Urban Spree in Berlin, a show that we hope to see soon and pick up our own copy of “CPT.OLF 16-19”: The Photobook, published by Urban Spree Books in October 2019


The Tunnels. Nuart Festival 2019. A film by MZM Projects

A positioning in text, a re-strung manifesto for a moment from the past, now revisited in your Nuart or Nuart Aberdeen branded t-shirt. Here is the work in the tunnels of Tou Scene, unfolding before you by Ukranian directors and street scholars Kristina Borhes and Nazar Tymoshchuk. It’s a beehive of activity as participants in this years’ event in Stavanger, Norway
create their installations in preparation for the big opening.

“This film is a journey,” explain the directors/authors/poets/narrators, “it is moving backward from the last 7th tunnel until the introductory Tunnel Zero in order to show the development of the movement with its modern variety of artistic practices and the parallels with the past.”

Brand New, You’re Retro, that 90s jam from Tricky, is presented here as a doorway to pass through to get to the 70s and then to return through to see the last moments of the 10s. Here is open rebellion against a system that suckers you in, gives you succor, sucks you, and regales you succulently with a promise. Sung by angry hopeful canaries in the coalmine, here are some winners and losers, as ever. Shout out to Yatharth Roy Vibhakar for a splendid soundtrack that is glitchy and timely, of this time.


Post-graffiti artist Jose Parla for ‘Isthmus’ in Instabul

Jose Parla is not a Street Artist. He’ll tell you that himself. Here he presents himself as a post-graffiti artist in Istanbul. You may also see possible labels of public artist, artist working in public space, muralist, studio artist, sculptor, contemporary artist, gestural abstractionist, pottery designer, decollagist a la Villeglé – taking posters from the street and applying to canvas. Here you follow him in the streets as he creates his “first-ever exhibition in Turkey, inspired by the word ‘ISTHMUS,” consisting of a new body of works on paper, paintings, sculptures and ceramics.”

BSA Special Feature: On Point With The Southapedia Mural Festival in Durban South Africa

We’re a long way from graffiti, and even unsanctioned Street Art now. Mural festivals that were grassroots are quickly splintering into 10s of different distributaries, some you recognize as purely related to the original scene, some you would find much harder to ID. This week we feature videos from a mural festival begun by two graphic designer/muralists who have been inspired by the worldwide phenomenon toward public mural programs and who created one in their hometown of Durban, South Africa.

The third largest city in the country, it is short on capital for the arts but this mural program, as is common, is equally envisioned as a tourism builder as it is an opportunity for local artists to get an opportunity to be paid to create professional murals. The opinions expressed by the artists in these personal reflections give you a sense of how far we are from the original graffiti writers and illegal Street Artists en route to officially approved mural programs that make neighborhoods “attractive”. One view shared here says the artist chose what he’s calling Street Art as a “niche” to exploit professionally because the field of digital art is oversaturated, while another lays out the blueprint for murals as a tool for gentrification of a borderline neighborhood – in a positive light. Thematically the murals are meant to reference local history and culture, but not in a confrontational way whatsoever.

At the same time, no other artists in the area have taken the initiative to improve the daily aesthetics for people who live in this area, and the structural, cultural, and economic realities can be quite harsh with a person who has a dream. This is not easy work to convince, to fundraise, to manage, to troubleshoot, and to promote at the same time. The failures of a government and its leaders to provide for taxpayers – possibly because the boot of international finance is on its neck – has little to do with the fact that everyday people have a history, have a present, and they enjoy looking at something newly painted in their neighborhood that inspires them or gives them a sense of pride in their community.

Here’s to the Southapedia Mural Festival and its originators, Dustin Scott and Wesley Van Eeden (artist name Resoborg) and the festivals’ many volunteers, for having the vision to make this happen.

Mina Hamada y Zosen Bandido are graphic and poppy in their organic naïve-style collage compositions. Their engaging style lends itself to public arts projects that also promote business and foot traffic. Here they (mostly he) talk about their love of color, their cultural art influences, and their new project this summer in the Art District Boca Del Rio in Veracruz, Mexico.

Marina Zumi “Lucid Dreams II”

Street Artist, muralist, and interactive artist Marina Zumi doesn’t stop exploring the moon and the night sky and those tremulous flickering messages that blip across our consciousness. Perhaps by way of exploring the modern, her newest electronic tracing of shapes and rhythms in the darkness borrow from Tron and early Kraftwerk, comforting and witty in the low-fi and physical familiarity of it all. Part of her show “Techno Poetry,” Zumi continues to break new ground with here lucid dreams.

BSA Special Feature: Gross Domestic Product – Banksy

The doublespeak of Banksy very effectively demanded a whirlwind of media attention in the art/Street Art world once again this week. The anti-capitalist launched a full street-side exhibition while his personal/anonymous brand benefitted by the new record auction price of 9.9 million pounds with fees for one of his works depicting a “Devolved Parliament” full of apes – precisely during the height of inpending Brexit hysteria.

New Stop Animation Project from Caledonia Curry AKA Swoon.

Street Artist Swoon (Caledonia Curry) has been pushing her creative limits in a medium she is not known for, and the results are exhilarating.

Facing a backlog of fears and eager to go out of her comfort zones of that include linotype printing and wheat-pasting on the street – and the many projects building community – her last two years of study in stop animation are ready to be seen. Present her narrative practice and character in a surprising new way, Swoon takes chances bravely, and is ready to share her new work.

Her new exhibition with Jeffery Deitch is coming up in New York – but today we offer a sneak peek of what the deep diving Swoon has discovered.

Henry Chalfant “Art vs Transit 1977-1987” Bronx Museum of the Arts

Horticultural Street Art Activists to the Rescue

These gardens have been maintained by gardeners. For generations.

Now the city council wants to take them over to build a new “eco-district” here in the Les Vaîtes neighborhood of Besançon. And the soil tenders say “These are Our Gardens,” resisting the change, insisting on the historical respect they believe these gardens deserve.

After spending many days with them, taking pictures and speaking with everyone, artist Anaïs Florin decided she could help by creating posters to highlight their struggle.

“Les Vaîtes before the eco-discrict” ! She put up some legally, and some illegally in the city center by taking over the bus stop shelter. Viva Les Vaîtes!

Vhils and his Work. A look into the Lisbon based artist

Yes, your grandmother is going to know about Vhils now.

YZ Yseult: Making of the Mural La Marianne

Marianne is a symbol of Republican France. A Marianne is a bust of a proud and determined woman wearing a Phrygian cap. She symbolises the attachment of the common citizens of the revolution to the Republic – Marianne is liberty, egality and fraternity.

The first thing you should know is that Marianne is a symbol in France – capturing the spirit of liberty, equality, and brotherhood/sisterhood (Liberté, Equalité, Fraternité). Commonly depicted as a proud and determined woman wearing a Phrygian cap, Marianne symbolises the attachment of the common citizens of the revolution to the Republic. 

Street Artist YZ and engraver Elsa Catelin have just finished their view of the heralded symbol on the streets of Périgueux (Dordogne) – and it actually became the new face of Marianne stamps. Selected by the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, YZ had the opportunity to meet him and see her work unveiled across a 16 meter by 11 meter wall.

BSA Special Feature: “REWILD” from Escif

As part of our core commitment as a non-commercial platform that has helped hundreds of artists over the last decade+, BSA significantly helped Escif to raise money for his Indiegogo fundraiser in Spring 2017 when we promoted his “Breath-Time” horticultural project heavily as he planted trees to reforest Mount Olivella in Southern Italy.

Today BSA debuts REWILD, a new tree-related project by the Spanish Street Artists – just as the Global Climate March is spreading to cities around the world, including New York.

The concept of the short film is simple: can’t we just push the “Rewind” button?

“The narrative runs in reverse, rewinding the clock on deforestation to undo the damage caused by the unsustainable production of one of the worlds most versatile commodities. Beyond the industrialisation of the land, we end at the beginning, a thriving eco system alive with wildlife. The concept mirrors the real world action of the Sumatran Orangutan Society and their partners in reclaiming land on the borders of the Leuser rainforests to rewild them with indigenous trees, expanding the boundaries of one of the most biodiverse places on earth.”  

Finally, a stunning custom soundtrack by Indonesian composer Nursalim Yadi Anugerah captures and carries this into another world, which is possible.

Shout out to the folks behind the project Splash and Burn: a cultural initiative curated by Ernest Zacharevic and coordinated by Charlotte Pyatt run in association with the Sumatran Orangutan Society and the Orangutan Information Centre.  

Guido van Helten in Faulkton, South Dakota by Brian Siskind

A massive piece by the observant eye of Guido van Helten, who knows how to capture a spirit, a gesture, a knowing expression. Here on a grain elevator in Faulkton, South Dakota, his piece becomes a clarion, captured here by Brian Siskind.

BSA Special Feature: “Word on the Street” Debuts

“Fuck the old days. Graffiti is now!”

The last five years have been explosive for Street Art worldwide, and with “Word On The Street” you have a good indicator that the graff writing game is alive and well in New York as well – and tenaciously prolific.

Anonymous filmmakers infused the doc with vibrating audio and visual distortion and a sense of ever-present surveillance, or the implication of it cloaked in darkness. Interviews, late night runs, frozen wire fences, loose footing, bloody scrapes, and the sweet smell of aerosol lightly purring from cans across a shadowed wall. The labor of love for the filmmakers is the only thing that pushes a project like this to fruition. And fumes of course.

It’s first public screening is coming up September 29 in Brooklyn. Click HERE for more information.

Constantino Mass adds just the right amount of slickly pounding wipes and cuts to this installation by INO in Athens. We published photos from this a few days ago so have a look and enjoy the video.

Two in a Row from Alex Prager

Alex Prager debuted a new short film at Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York this month, and it has piqued the interest of many in her work of disconnected, reconnected narratives. Impeccably styled, humorously shot, it’s a staged invoking of old Hollywood and street scenes, enveloped in drama and frequently suspense. Often the LA born director provides just the deconstructed portion of the scene you have seen, and keeps reworking it in surprising ways. Go to the gallery to see the new “Play the Wind”. Below are two of her short films from five and nine years ago respectively.
