Abe Lincoln Jr. Keeps Fighting & He Isn’t Alone

Abe Lincoln Jr. Keeps Fighting & He Isn’t Alone

What is #keepfighting?

Street Artist and activist Abe Lincoln Jr. is one of the growing ranks of subvertising executives on the streets today who are flipping the script on public messaging. Phone booths on city streets were meant as a public accommodation but eventually they were commandeered for private advertising and endless campaigns of commercial speech.

With his new #keepfighting ad takeover campaign of art by himself and other artists, the self proclaimed agitator says we should continue fighting for what we believe in. What do you want to raise awareness about? That is up to you.

Abstract Specter at the Bus Stop

Abstract Specter at the Bus Stop

It’s been sort of rainy in New York recently so you may have to take shelter while you wait for the bus. While you do, would you rather be treated with a large illuminated ad for hair color, headache medicine, or hemorrhoid creme?

Or would you like to spend a few minutes gazing on a new piece by Street Artist Specter, whose new works have been  appearing in a few new locations in Brooklyn? Once better known for his large hand painted portraits of people who live on the streets or who collect recyclable materials and push them in shopping carts, Specter’s more recent work has been abstract and reliant upon texture, shape and composition.

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2014

If you haven’t gone barefoot in the park yet this summer, what are you waiting for? Everybody’s doing it. Not recommended for the sidewalk in Bushwick, Bedstuy, …okay, most of Brooklyn. Limit your barefootness to grassy areas.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring AK, Bifido, Che Man, Clint Mario, Cooper, Crummy Gummy, Damon, Jilly Ballistic, Karl Addison, ME, OverUnder, Pyramid Oracle, Razo, Sean9Lugo, and Skount.

Top Image >> Jilly Ballistic blasts something out of the sky while the modern version of the Keystone Cops blasts an advertisement at unsuspecting citizenry. What’s with all the guns all the time? Jeez.(photo © Jaime Rojo)

“I recently visited Detroit, MI and created some new work while I was there. When I told people I was going to Detroit the typical reaction was “It’s Dangerous” Or “That place is dirty!” or they would just make a face about it like I’m crazy for going. After visiting I felt, yes there are some areas that are not great to hang around at, but I also fell in love with the people there and how they take a lot of pride in their city. So the two works loosely were inspired by people’s reactions to visiting Detroit using references of “crime” and “cleaning up” with my twist of humor put in them” – CG
