Here’s our weekly interview of the street, this week featuring B.D. White, Col Wallnuts, Dan Witz, Greg LaMarche, Jon Hall, Josef Kristofoletti, JR, Mr. Penfold, Mr. Toll, and W.

The inaugural wall from a new program called “The Big Brush” by commercial outdoor advertising company Colossal went up this week in Brooklyn featuring a work by 1980s/90s New York graffiti writer SP One,  who is now better known as collage fine artist Greg LaMarche. The company figures at least tangentially into the street art scene by virtue of the sheer amount of work they provide for a large number of painting artists who create about 300 walls per year, all hand-painted. They even have an apprenticeship program for painters who would like to learn how to do this work. “Big Brush” will be unleashing a slew of new art on walls that are not zoned to be commercial, so they’re actually inching a little closer to Street Art than before.

For his part, LaMarche told us he was pretty blown away as he watched his original small collage go up over the course of a couple of days, painstakingly recreated on this same wall that had the D*Face piece not too long ago – with the view of the Williamsburg Bridge to the right. We can’t wait to see the video that was created, as we hear that some interesting techniques were employed in the shooting.

“Basically it’s a re-creation of a collage I made last year – it was on the cover of a magazine from Paris called Graffiti Art magazine,” said LaMarche as he guided himself up and down in a cherry picker to get shots of his work. “So it’s crazy that it was on the cover of that magazine this spring and now it’s on the side of a building in Brooklyn. The last year or two has been pretty amazing. I’ve painted some large murals myself but to have some of my smaller work, the collage work, realized in this larger format is really incredible.

BSA: The original work was made with all hand-cut small pieces that are glued to canvas, right?
Greg LaMarche: Onto a board, yeah. It’s funny because when we did the ratio calculations – the actual piece is 15″ wide by 20″ tall and the way they set this up the width was actually perfect. These guys are professional and they know what they are doing. And artists like this are a dying breed – it seems like there’s no challenge that they can’t handle.

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.
