BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

This is it! The last part of summer when you are still daydreaming, looking at the sky. The trees in all the parks are deep rich green, the city’s swimming pools are still teaming with people, the abandoned lots and railroad tracks are sprouting full-blown bushes and weeds that grow so tall they are over your head. Somewhere in those weeds is a secret hiding place where you’ll find a half pack of cigarettes and a porno magazine stowed by a teenager. Oh, they don’t read porno magazines anymore? It’s all on your phone?

Speaking of that topic, what about the disaster porn across all the corporate news shows every single day? Boy, that stuff sells! Hard to imagine they want to give up that money with all our eyes glued to TV millionaires like Rachel and Shawn and Blondy McBlonderstein and the rows of speaking Barbies and Kens spewing out one more outrageous piece of drivel after another. This presidency is a boon to business in so many fabulous ways! Almost better than war!

Street Art is alive and well and summer has produced a healthy crop of murals, wheat-pastes, stencils, tags, pieces, you name it. New Yorkers have a lot to say in public space – as well as a bounty of visitors, like the Brazilian Eduardo Kobra, who has been painting a new series of socially conscious walls with celebrities carrying the message around New York. On the street it’s always a mixed bag, and we like to see the huge walls as well as the small missives. You’re guaranteed a good crop this summer.

Here’s our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuring Arkane, Benjie Escobar, Caratoes, CRK, Goodie, Gum Shoe, Key Detail, Kobra, Mike Makatron, Mr. Never Satisfied (Never), Mr. Baby, Primal, R. Heak, and Shaun Bullen.

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

Rounding out the Thanksgiving week here as people think back on what they have to be thankful for in New York and across the US. Despite the class war on the poor, near-weekly proof of systematic racism and extremism, gun violence that feels out of control, and 3 songs on the top ten by Justin Beiber, we have to admit that all is not lost – and we still have a pretty strong union of cool people who actually love our neighbors and multi-cultures and are willing to show it every day.

The art we see in the streets continues to evolve; People like Gilf! are combining experimentation and activism in the public sphere while others are looking for ways to address a variety of social/political ills, – meanwhile many artists now seek and secure legal spots to put up their work, use hash tags and Instagram as marketing directly to collectors, advertisers are mimicking street art to promote brands, and Wynwood in Miami is preparing to showcase some of the flashiest displays of sponsored murals and participants yet during Basel next week.

There is a rising chorus of horrified detractors who say an organic grassroots art form is being commodified. It’s not political enough! It’s narcissistic! It’s all privileged white kids who don’t appreciate the true roots of graff culture! Calm down everybody, we can handle this. There is room for all ya’ll, like they say down south.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Ai Wei Wei, Dee Dee, Ernest Zacharevic, Gilf!, Gum Shoe, Himbad, Invader, Isaac Cordal, Jilly Ballistic, Le Diamantaire, Osch aka Otto Schade, Ouizi, Sipros, and Swoon.

Non-controversial lampooning cast as tough political stance, The Peralta Project is a commercial lifestyle brand that is using the street to advertise their product line, cashing in on a very popular dislike for this reality TV star. Like a mezcal company did this summer these posters are popping up to emasculate – and possible help move product. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

“The Nevercrew and I are the first ever people from outside of Egypt who painted in downtown Cairo, which had its rise in Street Art during the last 4 years and during the revolution. The military is back in charge now and the art on the streets came to a stop since you will end up in prison when they stop you (we had permission for this.” – Bustart

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2014

Apparently there is another spectacular sporting event that’s got everyone captivated today and for a couple hours it will be easy to get a cronut or a seat on the subway because people will be worshipping flat screens inside a dark sports bar on the Lord’s Day. We recommend you jog right over to the High Line because it’s free and will likely be a little more commodious than usual. You can lounge while listening to a sleek waterfall, stroll arm in arm with your beloved, gaze upon the urban-wild landscaping and even catch a new billboard high-jacking that might make you crack a  smile.

The billboard space is great if reserved for Art On The High Line, but has been recently replaced by straight up garishly banal advertising, sort of marring the beauty of this big public works project whose spirit is better served when it steers clear of commercial messaging. This week sometime a few buckets of yellow paint were used to selectively buff the message to create a new one. A bit of genius goes a long way sometimes, doesn’t it? Although, for all we know, it’s a clever way to draw attention to the original ad, since you can still read it.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Alice Pasquini, bunny M, Bust Art, Cera, Damon, Gazoo, Gum Shoe, Kid Monkey, Knarf, Labrona, LMNOPI, Low Bros, Miriam Castillo, Mr. Prvrt, Pyramid Oracle, Sweet Toof, Trentino, UD, Urban Spree, Vexta, Wing, and Zaria.
