Our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Billi Kid, Dain, Ema, Fumero, Iwazaru, Kikazaru, Labrona, Lisa Enxing, ME, Miyok, Mizaru, and ND’A.

An urban diorama is not something you run into everyday. In fact, unless you usually run into air conditioners that stick out of buildings, it would be pretty unlikely you’d run into this one. This is our first encounter with a fully formed diaroma on the streets of New York, made by putting a piece of plexi glass over the end of an air conditioner casing. The building itself looks like it’s getting ready to be demolished, but this pleasant little pastoral pokes it’s head out into the sidewalk, more or less commanding you to stare inside. Larger ones like this are available for you to view at the Museum of Natural History. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Here is Lisa Enxing’s take on the Japanese maxim “Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil, See no Evil”.  She replaced the Three Wise Monkeys; Mizaru, Kikazaru and Iwazaru with her stenciled and hand colored Geishas. What are their names we wonder? We get the message. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

“E” is for EMA. French Street Artist Ema was recently in Brooklyn. Kind of gives you pause for reflection. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Fumero hit the street with echoes of Thanksgiving in mind with this hand colored family portrait. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

An instant hit, the non-chalance of the pepper spraying police officer who walked up a row of silent students protesting at the University of California like he was dusting a row of corn with insecticide, this image has inspired street art of course. Why not? It has it’s own Tumbler page, after all. Street art here is by Miyok, Me. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Here are a few of our favorites from the site;

Oh, say can you seeeeeeeee?

The artist “Never” paints this colorful Swallow on the facade of  the Swallow cafe in Bushwick. By the time you read this the “Morgantown” lettering will probably have been replaced. Some high minded arrivistes tried to re-name Bushwick with the pretentious sounding name of  “Morgantown”.  Despite their best efforts and claims of name coinage the title never took hold. Bushwick is what it is…dirty sounding, dirty on the streets and dirty elsewhere. Love it! (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Sometimes that pointy part of the head on a Stikman makes me think of the Pope. See what I mean? Stikman. (photo © Jaime Rojo)
