BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

Welcome to our first BSA Images of the Week for the new year. We thought we’d start out with a small unassuming businessman – perhaps he is from the World Bank. Wonder what he’s thinking, and planning. We just completed New York’s warmest December – averaging 51 degrees, or 13 degrees above normal. That’s why you’ll see no snow in these wintery images.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring ASVP, Classic, Dart, Dasic Fernandez, ENX, Foxx Face, Isaac Cordal, Jim Power, Jorit Agoch, KEO, Leticia Mandragora, Norm Kirby, One Eye Mickey, and She Wolf.

Feliz Cinco De Mayo to all the Mexicanos/Mexicanas in the NYC today! Actually it’s more of a beer company sponsored holiday for los gringos but What the Infierno, it’s a big Spanglish Sunday in our multicultural city. Yo, speaking of spanish, check out José Parlá above rocking the installation he did with JR on a wall in Chelsea.  And speaking of JR, the Times Square excitement continues till Friday so head on over to tourist central and be a part of it and a volunteer will help you get your mug turned into a piece of street art. Also keep your eyes open for news of his trip this week to Rikers Island. Bro, we weren’t there, we’re too scared to even think of it.  But we did get to hang out with visiting Tunisian/Parisian calligraphic Street Artist El Seed this week while he was hitting up a wall and we’ll show you that action soon.

Anyway, here’s our weekly interview of the street, this week featuring Billi Kid, Bishop 203, Classic, Duke A. Barnstable, Earth Chronicles, Fink NY, Foxx Face, Fumero, Gilf!, Havan, Jon Hall, José Parlá, JR, Mr. Toll, ND’A, Rene Gagnon, Sno, Stikman, and Wishbe .

HUSH.  “Hush revisited this old piece in Newcastle, UK on Friday. The original piece in the same place was damaged by a huge rain storm,” says his studio manager, who described how he incorporated the damaged piece into the new one. Now it looks like the damage is going to influence his new show in LA. It turns out to be an interesting study in how work on the street can affect work in the studio.  (photo © HUSH)

Big expansive walls are cool, but its always very nice to see well rendered small pieces on the streets too.

Images of the Week 11.04.12

This was a tough week for New York and we’re still struggling to recover from the Hurricane whose name we’re tired of saying. We have every reason to believe New Yorkers will continue to pull together, as we always do. Go Brooklyn! Go Staten Island! Go Manhattan! Go Queens! Go Bronx! Go Long Island! Go New Jersey! Go Connecticut! New York, you are beautiful and we love you.

As ever, photographer Jaime Rojo was on the streets shooting a lot of stuff, and of course there was new Street Art to discover too. So here’s our weekly interview with the street, including 2501, Bast, Cash for Your Warhol, Classic, Cynthia von Buhler, FKDL, Gilf!, Hanksy, JR, Nick Walker, Pixel Pancho, Rene Gagnon, Ron English, and You Are Beautiful.

These new Cash For Your Warhol signs are suddenly appearing again, and offering valuable authentication services also.  (photo © Jaime Rojo)

The Parisian FKDL left new stuff that appeared on the streets of Brooklyn recently, his collages now evolving to include more detailed figurework in a 1950s illustration style. Using clippings from vintage newspapers and magazines in the compositions, these wheat pastes/collages are hand colored and one of a kind, left for the few who catch sight of them before the weather destroys them. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Many boarded up and empty lots were uncovered by the fury of hurricane Sandy this week. Many plywood fences blew up and away, exposing the hidden walls. This is an old JR piece that we have documented before but we have not been able to get inside this fenced lot until now. Naturally, it now has been transformed a bit by the contributions of tags on it, sort of emulating the stripe painted across this native American’s face. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Here’s a Ron English installation in progress in Little Italy for The New York Comedy Central in association with Vandalog: “The Art of Comedy”. There will be an art walk to celebrate this installations. More details to follow on the BSA Calendar and Upcoming Events. Some local guys stopped to pose for this one. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Untitled. Hurricane Sandy caused NYC to go partially dark this week and even days after the storm there are still 2 million people without electricity. In this photo the Williamsburg Bridge is half illuminated on the Brooklyn side, half dark on the Manhattan side – a visual representation of the sense of loss the city is feeling right now.

Images of the Week 09.30.12

This week seemed busy on the streets of New York after LA graff writer Saber started us off on Sunday with a sky-writing campaign that was politically charged arts advocacy and a social media-soaked smackdown of the right wing in the US. From culture-jamming to political commentary to social advocacy, it looks like some Street Artists are getting back their voice in many pieces that are espousing a message.  Not all of them of course.

So here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Bast, Billi Kid, Creepy, Classic, Espo, Home Sick, JB Rock, Jeice 2, Meer Sau, ND’A, Olek, OverUnder, PM AM, Reader, and Ugo Rondinone. Locations include New York, Istanbul, London, Portugal, Sicily, and the Pilbara desert in the Northwest of Australia.

Sevin’s Errline. This ad-bust wins the week. In this case the artist(s) attached his/her /their decomposing, surrealist airplane to a huge vinyl banner that is shilling luxury condos in Manhattan. It’s a prime example of how un-commissioned and illegal Street Art can create and lead conversations on the street. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

OLEK. This is a brand new piece on the walls of the Village Underground in Shoreditch, London. Explains Olek, “It is in conjunction with a campaign with street artists for an anti-slavery event that is happening this week.” ESPO’s words are across the top. (photo © OLEK)

As he paints the giant 8-shaped snake biting it’s tail, the Italian Street Artist JB Rock explains his new piece this way, “This is a portrait of our modern society and especially of my beautiful but very counterproductive country. For this work I’ve been inspired by the UROBORUS concept, remixed with the Infinity symbol”.

“I traveled up to Port Hedland which is an industry Port in the North West of Australia and painted some walls and found objects in the desert as part of a residency with FORM gallery,” says the Perth-based Creepy.
