It’s Only Street Art When It’s On the Street

So you might as well move the furniture out on the sidewalk for your 4th of July Bar-B-Que this weekend and enjoy the best of both worlds.  Look, some guests have already arrived!  Pictured below on the Brooklyn street are Veng (RWK), Imminent Disaster, El Sol 25, Yote, and Andrew Michael Ford. Is the beer cold yet?

Let Jimi Put You In the Mood for a Patriotic Weekend

In Manhattan – Street Artist Dennis McNett’s Wild Kingdom Runs 50 Feet of Barney’s Windows

Brooklyn-Street-Art-Dennis_McNett-Barneys-July2010

Brooklyn based artist Dennis McNett totally smashed the windows at Barneys with his imagination. “Passerby’s can see over sized wolf, owl, and skull masks paired with mannequins dressed in evening wear with a backdrop of psychodelic starbursts and swooping wolfbats. Dennis’s woodcut blocks, prints, masks and paper mache sculptures adorn the mannequins and window interiors. His imagery from nature, folklore, mythology, and story telling mixed with the graphic carved wood patterns from wood block prints sets a very unique stage for the store and this part of town.”

Barneys NY Madison Ave. between 60th and 61st through July 12th
They are best seen at night as they have been professionally lit.  Check out Dennis at www.wolfbat.com

Pics from Jef Aerosol Opening

From photographer Vincent Cornelli comes this fun collection of images from last nights opening of “All Shook Up”, Jef Aerosol’s opening at Ad Hoc/Eastern District in Bushwick, Brooklyn, curated by Brooklyn Street Art.  A steady crowd carried through the evening to check out the new pieces and to meet the artist in person.

Jef strikes a pose in front of his giant canvas, a reprise of his mural of Jean-Michel Basquiat that he did on a rooftop in Brooklyn last week. Etched into Basquiat's eyebrow is the word "Brooklyn". (photo © Vincent Cornelli)

Classic muses of Jef's 30 year love affair with stencils were joined by Brooklyn-based icons like Jay-Z, a brand new one of M.I.A., graffiti legend Dondi White, and street art photographer Luna Park (who was in attendance). (photo © Vincent Cornelli)

He also did a small 10 piece Basquiat edition for the show (think there are a few left). (photo © Vincent Cornelli)
