Week in Images 02.22.09

We’ve been a little busy on that “Street Crush” KRAZEE-ness for a few weeks,

so we thought everyone should just take it easy, and not put up any work on the street until we could get back out there and take a look around. Well, that didn’t really work very well, did it? What the heck?

I used to live in this apartment on the upper east side near Gracie Mansion, and sometimes at night a golf-ball sized cockroach would run across my bed and thump onto the hardwood floor and run away. I kid you not. (Hellbent) (photo Jaime Rojo)

Mr. Brainwash, Life Is Beautiful

Three's Company!  (MBW)

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

If you can wait in line that is.  Filmmaker/street artist MBW must have broken some kind of records Wednesday for the opening of his new Swindled show at the former CBS Studios in Hollywood.  The fans lined up all along Sunset Boulevard to see all the pop culture mangling and icon mashing they could set their eyes on, from multiples of those fabulous Elvis with Shotgun screenprints, to a giant Warholic can of tomato spray soup,

For Fly Stencils that are mmm mmm Good.     (MBW)

For Fly Stencils that are mmm mmm Good. (MBW)

to a mountain of discarded 50,000 books and shoes (I counted).  “Prolific” would be too stingy an adjective.

Banksy says he’s a “force of nature” (like a trailer park tornado ?), Shepard Fairey wants to hug him or smack him (but still DJ’d the opening); You know, chewing through popular culture isn’t new for street art, but MBW has a gargantuan appetite!  – and apparently a following to match.

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

June 18 through Sunday June 22.
