BSA Images Of The Week: 02.12.23

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week!

How are you feeling, friends? This month “Beyond the Streets” is opening at Saatchi Gallery in London, Risk is receiving a lifetime achievement award in Miami, and yet another Banksy show is opening in New York. Also, there will be a lot of kissing on Tuesday, so you may want to prepare yourself to pucker up.

Some kind of big game today we guess. Happens every year about this time – the streets will be empty this afternoon as people will be inside their homes, gathered around their screens, eating buffalo wings, pigs-in-a-blanket and tater tots with family and friends. Happy World Series everybody!

Meanwhile, the Chinese are flying balloons over the US, spying. Shocking. Who else does this remind you of?

New York street art is heavy with pop icons, pop psychology, and popular culture in this week’s collection.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring: SacSix, Sara Lynne Leo, Degrupo, Eye Sticker, Stickman, Ollin, Jorit, Steve the Bum, and Kir One.

SacSix again hi-jacks an image from popular culture and reworks it with some color, spatters, and drips. Here we have the Lone Ranger, with a face like Alec Baldwin – a reference to his gun troubles. (photo © Jaime Rojo)
