Back when we began this BSA journey we used to tell people we felt lucky to be in New York and to witness the birth of a new Street Art movement here and to walk the streets discovering people, fashion, architecture, and Street Art like Walt Whitman taking a walk through Leaves of Grass.
Happily we’re still saying it, with total conviction.
Serendipity happens again here as we discover a new painter, a new style of painting on the street. It recalls the illustrations on commercial greeting cards and children’s story books from the 1960s and 1970s perhaps; a blushing bashful blundering bushel of big-eyed bliss bisecting the blond head of a slumbering beauty. It’s all Bambi and Mary Poppins up in here.

The rabid pursuit of President Obama’s birth certificate has puzzled many thinking people while the topic is repeatedly brought up during street marches and demonstrations – finally pushing the President himself to hold a press conference about it this week. The astro-turf fingered crowds in the streets during last years Health Care debates in the US pretty much revealed their base disagreement with all things Obama with their hand held signs that couldn’t be described as anything but racist – “off message” for the insurance companies but “on message” for the yahoos who took their buses. We know this “birther” movement won’t disappear because of the poisonous legacy of racism in our history, but we are thankful for the strong clear thinking of people like Goldie Taylor (video below) who helps us place current events in context.
