Welcome the first BSA Images of the Week of 2022! How are you feeling? You’re looking great!

The street art parade marches on, perhaps ever clearer in its intent to reflect the mood, the zeitgeist, the intellectual meanderings of the artist class. In the process of demystifying the graffiti and street art scene over the few decades, we’ve long realized that there always will be surprises, no matter how much of the scene you have decoded. That’s what keeps it FREEEESSSSSSSSHHHH!

This week, as the snow is falling in dirty old NYC and as people are rescinding into their homes for another de facto Covid “lockdown”, we discover that artists are hard at work getting out their message, their id, their frustrations, their aspirations, their wit.

May this adventure never end, and may this trail never go cold.

So here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Adam Fujita, Anderson Bluu, Dorothy Gale, Ernesto Maranje, ERRE, Ethan Minsker, Fake Banksy, Gold Loxe, Ill Surge, J. Cole, Johann Art, Marka 27, Miss 17, NEST, Praxis VGZ, Salami Doggy, and Winsten Tseng .

Urban Folk Art Gallery Presents: “The Usual Suspects 2” (Brooklyn, NY)

The Usual Suspects 2
Urban Folk Art© Gallery presents “The Usual Suspects 2” an old school Graffiti Group Art Show

Brooklyn, NY- Urban Folk Art Gallery is pleased to announce their August show “the Usual Suspects 2”. Opening August 5th at 7pm, it will show a collection of Graffiti art created by artists who got their start writing graffiti in the 70’s and 80’s.

In an age where Graffiti is a widely accepted art form, used in everything from advertising to high fine art, most of the 13 artists showing began their artistic journeys in Brooklyn decades ago when Graffiti was an underground art movement started by disenfranchised youth. The artists include locally known as well as widely celebrated artists such as DANCE, REBEL, NEST, REK, SNATCH, KEO, POET, JAMES TOP, MOS ONE, BASIC, CHIEF, AND KC. These artists who began their Graffiti careers so long ago continue to help mold the contemporary Graffiti scene today. Some of the artists have been continuing to exhibit work far and wide, use their abilites for commercial and charitable ventures, and most of them continue to paint murals legal and otherwise. The First Usual Suspects show was held nearby a year ago, while the NYPD Vandal Squad was parked outside due to the notorious artists showing within.

Curated by Anthony Jehamy and Adam Suerte. Anthony and Adam grew up in the same South Brooklyn neighborhood, and began writing Graffiti as teenagers in the early 80’s. Anthony is still painting murals, curating Graffiti art shows, and working in photography. Adam is co owner of Brooklyn Tattoo®, and Urban Folk Art© studios/gallery where he tattoos, paints, curates, and works in many mediums and art realms.
Urban Folk Art© Gallery was opened in January, 2011, and shows many different disciplines, as well as different levels of undiscovered, emerging, and established artists. The type of work shown will be anything from comtemporary painting, drawing, printmaking and photography, to comic art, legendary Graffiti artists, and contemporary illustration.

“ The Usual Suspects 2” Art Show will take place at the Urban Folk Art© Gallery, 101 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201, and will be up until the end of August.
