Multicolored Disappearing Horizon on Williamsburg Bridge

It’s summer and people are taking to the streets with their art. If you have taken a stroll or skateboard ride across the Williamsburg Bridge recently, you’ve seen a public art installation entitled “Baji Lives!”.






In this short film by Danielle Barbiari, five friends show how a collaborative project can also come alive with very modest resources and some elbow grease.

“During the wee hours of a warm summer night, several friends conspired to bring color to the Williamsburg Bridge. Inspired by the unique vantage point offered by this public space, Baji Lives! responded with a site-specific composition that accentuates the spatial dynamics of the pedestrian pathway. This piece is an offering to those who use the bridge”

To introduce readers to some of the Street Artists in the upcoming show “Street Art Saved My Life: 39 New York Stories”, BSA asked a number of the artists to take part in “Back Talk” with one of our most trusted and underground and sweet sources for modern art, Juxtapoz.

Today we hear from CAKE.

Artists you admire:
Tomma Abts, Jenny Saville, Olga Romashuk, Kathe Kollwitz, Herakut, Polina Soloveichik, Alice Neel, and Edvard Munch are my tops.”
