Our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuring Bast, Christian Paine, Jim Avignon, Jon Burgerman, LMNOP, Enzo and Nio, Stikman, Toofly, and WAS.

Jim Avignon took the entire block with this rather astounding outpouring of his whimsical style. The artist swore that this was the last time he’d do a mural of this scale. Well done Mr. Avignon! (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Fun Friday 10.29.10 BSA Halloween Special

Fun-Friday

Have a great Halloween Weekend Everybody!

Our longest post ever – scarily long. First we start off with a bunch of cool Street Art that is evocative of Halloween.

Then we hear a special Halloween/Election  message from Christine O’Donnell, a look at tonights’ events including Unified Love Movement’s installation across from MOMA, Erik Burke’s Closing Party, and Crest Hardware’s Pumpkin Carving Party (tonight). Also, video of Dan Witz’s disturbing WTF Street Art, and the most popular person to dress up as.

Careful out there, ya’ll.

Yep, the leaves are just starting to turn in the Big Apple – a little color in the trees, temperature is a little cool so you might feel a bit frisky in your 70’s shorts now. Sunny day like this is a good time to go running in the park – you never know who you gonna meet.  Hopefully, she’s not already taken…

New Stuff as the summer explosion begins…

Faile has spun out to Bedford Avenue (or at least a couple feet from it) in one more of these spinning columns to thrill the kids and the throngs of Williamsburg denizens, fans, and followers.  Rumor has it that you can also charge your cell phone with the energy stored from the spinning, but we couldn’t find the jack : (
