Welcome to BSA Images of the Week.
This week we see the rubber band of our normal expectations is stretching and contracting in the city, whether you are referring to the insistant Omicron wave, the students who walked out of classes this week, the new graffiti show at Phillips, uneffective politicians, a stagflated economy, spiking gas prices, a volcano, post-war hangover, and drums of war with Russia. It’s like all the chaos of the 1970s but without blacklight posters, waterbeds or Patty Hearst. And now you can get weed legally, man. Speaking of the 70s, here’s how to Dress Like Alana Haim in Licorice Pizza.
At the moment in New York most of us are staying off the street because it is bitterly cold outside. We just had a wind chill of -1 degrees fahrenheit (-18 celcius). Not a lot of graffiti and street art goes up during this weather.
But that doesn’t stop us from going out to shoot it.
So here’s our weekly interview with the street (in New York and Miami), this week featuring 2OX Crew, Arson, ATOMS, Boy Kong, Buff Monster, Ivan Roque, Jason Naylor, Jimenez, Kern Myrtle, MrKas, Patrick Kane McGregor, and Pleks.
