Images of the Week 05.20.12

The streets are alive again with all manner of styles from wheat-pastes to stencils, painting, murals, weaving, sticking, slapping, pop appropriation, comic parody, memorial outpouring, collectivism, mavericks, fantasy, pattern, geometry, photography, and yes, beef! Call it what you like, it looks like art is in the streets.

So here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Alec Monopoly, Bast, Ben Wolf, Bishop 203, Dain, Danielle Mastrion, Don’t Fret, Enzo & Nio, Heidi Tullman, Hot Tea, Jason Woodside, Klub7, KRSNA, Michael DeNicola, Mr. Clean, and Sonni.

There have been a number of great tributes on the street to the Beastie Boys in reference to the painful loss of Brooklyn’s MCA on May 4th. This one is by Danielle Mastrion. If you’d like to send us others, maybe we can collect them all into one posting. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

The acrylic box screwed onto the wall was originally an audio device for people to plug in their own earphones and learn more about Jason Woodside’s mural (shown here on last week BSA Images of the Week) in collaboration with the New Museum project titled CNNCTD+100. The box was partially destroyed and an unknown artist stenciled the earphones later.  (photo © Jaime Rojo)

The block party in Bushwick provided by Factory Fresh Gallery and the app called All City turned out a number of new Brooklyn Street Art pieces on a block long installation, complete with friends, fans, and a taco stand. Included in the offering was this surprise collab with Faile and Bast, auspiciously appearing the morning of the event like a pre-Christmas gift wrapped in razor wire. The news of the piece travelled fast and while Ad Deville couldn’t find his red carpet, he did post a velvet rope to hold back the crowd. That didn’t stop Futura from climbing on top of his car to get the perfect shot.

And here we move to a British invasion of sorts with Geishas and Primates from Hush and K-Guy respectively.  XAM has been installing some pretty cool looking bird houses around town equipped with LED lights on their porches that illuminate when the sun sets. Infinity and VUDU’s pieces for the Showpaper box project adds to the conversation on the street with a beaming signal tower atop the box.

brooklyn-street-art-k-guy-jaime-rojo-11-10-3-webK-Guy’s recent “Primates” piece, including this one that appears to be pretty fresh, have been appearing around Brooklyn suddenly. Apparently its meaning is reference to the growing perception of hypocrisy in the Catholic church, particularly as pertains to pedophilia coverups, its position on contraception, gay rights, among other issues.  brooklyn-street-art-k-guy-jaime-rojo-11-10-12-web

And finally the 800 pound pink gorilla in the group, Samson from Albany, began his audacious cityscape project directly beside his hero/shero Sten & Lex. The neighbor next door liked it so much Samson will be back to continue the piece – which is part of a much grander scale piece on urban decay, development, and renewal that he hopes to stage in the future.

Yep, the leaves are just starting to turn in the Big Apple – a little color in the trees, temperature is a little cool so you might feel a bit frisky in your 70’s shorts now. Sunny day like this is a good time to go running in the park – you never know who you gonna meet.  Hopefully, she’s not already taken…
