Speaking of Skewville, if you are in Brooklyn next weekend for Northside Open Studios and the Crest Fest 2011 and the Northside Music Festival be sure to see the brand new giant 100 foot Skewville wall unveiling in Williamsburg and come to the afterparty thrown by NOS, Crest and BSA in Greepoint. We’ll be sending out a big announcement about all the street artists involved this year (including some surprises) – so get on our newsletter and we’ll be sure to send you an invite. Great Street Art in Brooklyn!
Our weekly interview with the street hits some bright notes including new arrivals from El Sol 25, Specter, and Faile along with some shots Futura did of HAHA in Melbourne and even a taste of Kentucky Street Art.
The roll call this week; Bast, Billi Kid, Clown Soldier, El Sol 25, Faile, L.E.T., QRST, Rae, Romi, S, and Specter.
Stay tuned on BSA this week as we’ll bring to you an interview and studio visit with enigmatic El Sol 25. This self described hippie artist has bounded onto the scene in the last three years with his colorful, witty and well executed hand painted collages.
As winter loosens it’s grip, the first signs of spring are popping up all over New York, with new buds of passion from tender branches, construction walls, softened soil and industrial doorways. What this season will bring to the streets is anyone’s guess, but there are shoots and seedlings that we haven’t seen before, and a new crop is obviously taking shape. Here is our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Adam Krueger, Andrew Poneros, Betten, Cash-Money, El Sol 25, Enzo, Kinog, Kriest, Mint & Serf, Pork, Shark Toof, and Wheat.
Mint&Serf curated the show “Well Hung” The Chelsea Chapter at +aRT gallery located at 540 West 28 Street in NYC. Well Hung runs until Sunday April 3rd. A fundraiser to benefit the programs of Free Arts NYC . Below a few images of the art on the show:
Our weekly interview with the streets also wanders into a few Art Fairs this week as many Street Artists were in town showing studio work and getting up on walls. It was great to meet so many people who are on fire about this grassroots, interactive, DIY, in-your-eyeballs world of street art and to talk about where it is going. While there were a slew of Street Artists banging a luan wall at Fountain, we also got to see some peeps at Scope and Volta.
So here we go with shots of Andy Piedilato, Dalek, DFace, How Nosm, Mark Jenkins, Ron English, Tes One, Tristan Eaton, TrustoCorp, and Typoe.
Following up on Part 1 last Sunday, here are more amazing kick-arse photos from the various street artists who took over Wynwood in Miami last month. This weeks interview on the streets of the Miami features work by Burning Candy, Clare Rojas,Dustin Spagnola, Fumero, Invade, Joe Iurato, Kid Acne, LMA Cru, Mark of the Beast, Michael DeFeo, Miguel Paredes, ML, Nunca, OverUnder, Shepard Fairey, Skewville, VyalOne, and 305=2011=131,Vincent Luca,Shadowman,Luciano 3.
Now that the thumping headache from too many orange sodas on New Year’s Eve is gone, it’s time to regale little Baby 2011 with some eyeball pleasing baubles from sunny Miami. In early December many Street Artists converged upon this city to add to the sparkling traffic of Art Basel and to crush some major wallage.
Of course, not everybody finished their piece in time because there were parties to attend, booties to shake, and pretty things to watch workin’ it on the street. Dust settled and work completed, last week we climbed walls, squeezed through fences, and raced up railroad tracks to catch all the finished pieces for you. In the process we met some barking bulldogs and charming new friends, because Miami is mad friendly yo, and we even got some inside tips on hidden treasure.
Our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuring Burning Candy, Deeker, DsCreet, Earl Greyhound, Goya, Jimmy Snatch, KARMA, Kill, Nineta, Paul Richard,Plasma Slug, Shin Shin, Skewville, Tek33, and UFO
Our weekly interview with the street narrows this week to show you photos of a visit to Brooklyn from French Street Artist “The Dude Company” and a cool shot of Lister at the end.
A glorious autumn day and room to experiment a bit on a rooftop in Brooklyn. BSA invited The Dude Co. to put up an installation on a rooftop in Brooklyn and he happily and giddily obliged. The space was open to his interpretation and he decided to try out a repetition across the middle expanse as tribute to one of the best American actresses this country has given to the world, Gena Rowlands, who turned 80 this summer.
The repetition of her head in the installation is a nod to her depiction of a person unglued and in turmoil as her life swirls nervously beyond her control; Rolands’ emotional, Academy Award-Nominated performance in the movie “A Woman Under The Influence” in 1974, directed by her husband John Cassavetes?
Providing a bookend effect are his skater boy (created from a photo by Brooklyn artist Carlito Brigante) from earlier this year and an old favorite, his stencil of singer Erikah Badu.
