BSA Special Feature: GAIA “Still Here”

“The ability to paint realistically is magical. And so it is nice to possess a little bit of magic,” says Street Artist, muralist, social observer, citizen anthropologist, lecturer GAIA as he talks about his new mural project in Providence, Rhode Island.

A student and avid practitioner of multi-sectionalism the 30 year old Baltimorian researched the area and its history long before he began the project in September. Invited by Avenue Concept and its residency manager Nick Platzer, the artist partnered with the Tomaquag Museum in Exeter and artist Lynsea Montanari, a member of the Narragansett tribe, who is depicted in the mural holding a picture of Princess Red Wing, a Narragansett elder who founded the museum in the 1950s.

Follow the process, and hear GAIA speak about the path in “Still Here.”

 

Jorge Rodriguez Gerarda at DEN Culture Space in Barcelona

Cuban-American contemporary artists and large-scale terrestrial public artist Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada has worked in culture jamming and degrees of détournement on billboards in the street but is featured here today for his recent project with the tender ephemeral charcoal drawings many know him for. Part of an initiative with the JET8 Foundation the artist is receiving an art and technology grant to be used to support social and artistic projects. More on that later, but in the mean time, here is his mural of his friend Desislava Staneva, a Barcelona based art curator.

INO – BOMBER in Łódź

A quick flick of INO’s “Bomber” wall that he did with Urban Forms in Łódź, Poland. Whose the bomber, you ask? Atlas of course.  Look out below!

The midterms are over, but Trump is still great TV! The corporate media loves him and hates him and is absolutely hooked on him because he keeps bringing them advertising money. Don’t worry, they’ll quit him in 2024. Promise!

Democracy? That is a different matter.

BSA Images Of The Week: 11.04.18

BSA Images Of The Week: 11.04.18

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week! The clocks fell back last night, which means it gave NYC marathon runners a much needed extra hour to lie in bed and stare at the ceiling thinking about the race. Speaking of race, people of different colors are accused of vandalizing in New York with hate crime messages like the anti-semitic messages in a Brooklyn synagogue and anti-African American messages at an African  burial ground. We publish a lot images of Street Art and graffiti here and sometimes people call the pieces vandalism, but let’s be clear – this is a different situation altogether.

It seems like everyone is on edge right now as the mid-term elections this Tuesday are causing dark money and vile candidates to gin up feelings of racism, xenophobia, classism, homophobia, you name it. Friday it even caused one rageful white guy in a Cadillac SUV to punch another driver because he nabbed his parking space. Oh, wait, that was just Alec Baldwin. “What kind of example are you setting for your kids with your little temper tantrum?” asked a New York Post reporter as the Trump impersonator left the police precinct, according to the paper. “Can’t you afford a garage at this point with all the money you make?”

So here is our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuring Ad Tumulum Arts, Al Diaz, Anthony Lister, Claw Money, Duke A. Barnstable, Grimm The Street Kat, Invader, Jeffrey Beebe, JR, Kobra, Raf Urban, and Tomokazu Matsuyama.

Trump Rat and Democracy at Jeffrey Deitch “Protest Factory”

Trump Rat and Democracy at Jeffrey Deitch “Protest Factory”

Halloween comes to a close after what seemed like a week-long series of events and celebrations thanks to it occurring on Wednesday and no one knowing when to have a party or go trick or treating.

One thing that many agree on this year is that the guy who is haunting the White House is trying to scare the bejesus out of everybody – and apparently its working! But like most good thrillers, it’s the stuff that’s happening behind curtain backstage that is the most sinister – like lowering the tax rates on the rich to pre-Depression era levels. Because that worked out so well in the 1920s, right?

A few blocks from the East Village parade last night at Jeffrey Deitch on Wooster Street, Downtown For Democracy hosted a pop up exhibition titled “Protest Factory”. A lot of hot air sent Jeffrey Beebe’s TrumpRat to a soaring height and suitably spooked a number of guests in costume who milled around the opening show.

In addition to the satirically bloated man-mouse, curious onlookers got to see a number of new works and in-person interactions, including artist and activist Marilyn Minter screen-printing her own Trump Plaques, alongside photographer and activist Nan Goldin and her group P.A.I.N. which is addressing the opioid crisis and those who may profit from it, Richard Hell signing custom T-shirts, and Ryan McGinley taking Polaroids.

Downtown For Democracy is a PAC founded by creatives to “Transform cultural influence into political power and to put the power of art and creative expression to work for democracy”

The Protest Factory event will remain open to the public with talks, workshops and interviews with some of the participating artists until November 6th.
