Eli Cook’s 2011 Wish Comes True

Remember Eli Cook? He’s the BSA reader who had a wish last month to finish a painting?

Well, he finished it and sent us the picture so we thought we’d share it with you.  It’s a way to honor the creative spirit in all of us, and to honor Eli’s grand dad.

Good job Eli. We’re proud of you.

Happy New Year! BSA Highlights of 2010

Year-in-review-2010-header

As we start a new year, we say thank you for the last one.

And Thank You to the artists who shared their 11 Wishes for 2011 with Brooklyn Street Art; Conor Harrington, Eli Cook, Indigo, Gilf, Todd Mazer, Vasco Mucci, Kimberly Brooks, Rusty Rehl, Tip Toe, Samson, and Ludo. You each contributed a very cool gift to the BSA family, and we’re grateful.

We looked over the last year to take in all the great projects we were in and fascinating people we had the pleasure to work with. It was a helluva year, and please take a look at the highlights to get an idea what a rich cultural explosion we are all a part of at this moment.

The new year already has some amazing new opportunities to celebrate Street Art and artists. We are looking forward to meeting you and playing with you and working with you in 2011.

Wish #2: Eli Cook

eleven-for-11-animation-final

Wish-2

For 11 days we’re presenting 11 artists and BSA readers and their wishes for the new year, 2011, in no particular order. Together, they are a tiny snapshot of the people who are creators and fans of street art. Individually, each has added their expression of the creative spirit to the year now ending.

Today’s wish comes from BSA reader Eli Cook from Kentucky, who is a painter and a fan of Street Art. He shares with us his skillz and his wish;

“I wish to finish this painting by or during 2011, for my grand dad because his dad just passed and I wanted to do something for him”
