BSA Images Of The Week: 09.23.18

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

Biggie Smalls and Alfred Hitchcock open Autumn Equinox for BSA this week and we can’t help but think of that movie “The Birds” by the English film director where nature turns against man. Kiwi Street Artist Owen Dippie painted the mural in Brooklyn at the end of the summer and the mashup of references between the Brooklyn rapper and the dark cinematic thrillmaster in black and white may frighten you if you imagine those birds balanced at the end of their cigars began to peck their eyes out.

Friday night marked a new milestone for Urban Nation Museum For Urban Contemporary Art in Berlin there was a preview of the newly completed and opened artists’ residencies put on display. We were treated to the creative environments of 11 of the residencies with the first group of artists in attendance including NeSpoon, Herakut, Li-Hill, Snik, Ludo, Mia Florentine Weiss, Quintessenz, Sellfable, Dot Dot Dot, Louis Masai, Wes 21 and Onur. The museum will open its doors again for the museum’s second exhibition titled “The Power of Art as a Social Architect”  this Thursday.  Check it out if you are in Berlin.

So here is our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuring 1UPCrew, Adele Renault, AKUT, Berlin Kidz, BustArt, Dina Saadi, Exit Art, L.E.T., M-City, Mehsos, Owen Dippie, Snik, and Vegan Flava.

30 Works Gallery Presents: “Dirty Words” A Group Exhibition. (Cologne, Germany)

Gruppenausstellung mit Decycle , EMESS, L.E.T., Marc Peschke, mittenimwald, Various & Gould und Van Ray

„dirty works @ 30works“ geht in die vierte Runde. Ein weiteres Mal wird die Kölner 30works Galerie zur Spielfläche, zum Experimentierfeld, zum Treffpunkt der Jungen Wilden der Kunstszene. Streetart? Pop Art? Bildende Kunst? Es ist heute schwer, da noch eine Grenze zu ziehen. Diesmal sind Decycle, EMESS, L.E.T., Marc Peschke, mittenimwald, Various & Gould und Van Ray zu sehen – Stars und Talente aus ganz Deutschland: eine wilde Mischung. Ausstellungseröffnung ist am Samstag, den 26. Januar, um 20 Uhr.

Streetart ist rau. Sie ist handgemacht. Sie ist ein Spiel mit Zeichen und Codes. Manchmal ist sie wie eine feindliche Übernahme, lässt einen Raum des Widerspruchs entstehen. „dirty works vol. IV“ bietet nicht weniger als einen Culture Clash, einen kulturellen Mustermix. Neueste Pop-Hybride, rau und unmittelbar werden hier präsentiert. Spektakuläre Bilder, junge Kunst, die provoziert und anmacht, die den Kunstbetrieb herausfordert, die nach einem anderen Leben giert, die sich wehrt gegen Kommerzialisierung und Gentrifizierung der Städte, die sich als Gegenpol versteht, als beißender Kommentar auf eine zunehmend normierte Umwelt. Diese Kunst ist vielgestaltig, technisch wie inhaltlich – aber vor allem ist sie: nie langweilig. Streetart, Urban Art und Bildende Kunst. Neue, frische Bilder. Jetzt zu sehen in Köln bei „dirty works vol. IV @ 30works“.

Finissage: Sonntag, 24. Februar von 15 bis 18 Uhr.
Ausstellung: 26.01.2013 bis 23.02.2013
Di-Fr 15-19 Uhr, Sa 11-17 Uhr sowie nach Vereinbarung.

30works Galerie
Antwerpener Str. 42
50672 Köln

BSA Loves You More Every Day: Happy Valentines Day

Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.
C. S. Lewis

The individual wheat-paster or tagger on the streets may not intend it, but they’re writing an open diary, an invitation to conversation, to tell a story. As we continue to record and examine the stories that are written on the street, we get some powerful insights regularly. How Street Artists express the topic of love is as individual as it is universal.

This is a love letter to the BSA readers who have shown real support to us along the way and with it comes our continued promise to love you more every day.

“Images of the Year 2011” From Brooklyn Street Art (Video)

It’s been an excellent year for Street Art all over the world and we’ve had the pleasure of seeing a lot of great stuff from big names to the anonymous. Eye popping, brain-teasing, challenging, entertaining, aspirational and inspirational – it’s all happening at once.  We’ve been walking the streets, meeting the artists, going to shows, curating shows, speaking to audiences, providing walls, and asking questions. It ebbs and flows but never stays the same. With the rise of the Occupy movement this autumn, we’re already seeing an uptick in the number of people taking their messages to the street with a renewed intensity.

Let’s take a look at some of our favorite shots, whether from a rooftop in Bushwick, Brooklyn, a block-long wall in Miami, or the “Art in the Streets” show at LA MoCA. As you sample this eye-candy platter, dig the staccato soundtrack made of sounds culled from Brooklyn’s streets by electro duo Javelin, who spent a day in the Red Hook neighborhood collecting sounds and then mixed them in the back of their car. This is the kind of D.I.Y. ingenuity that is fueling the fire in artists neighborhoods all over the world, with people taking their stories and skills directly to the streets. With Javelin as the perfect auditory partner here’s 90 shots by photographer Jaime Rojo from 2011.
