Images of the Week 08.07.11


Our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Billy Mode, Cash4, Cassius Fouler, Chris Stain, Creepy, Godson, JR, LMNOP, PonyBoy, QRST, Rambo, Voke, and Xavior.

We start this week with a brand new nearly block-long installation in Bushwick, Brooklyn by Street Artists Chris Stain, Billy Mode, and Voke called “In The Dream”. The guys really stretched themselves physically and creatively, coxing out a more subtle and layered treatment of their subjects and symbols . It creates a dream-like feeling frankly.

French street artist and TED Prize winner  JR visited New York recently to help turn the Bronx “Inside Out”. As most of our readers are already aware, JR used his prize money to encourage communities all over the world to take part in the conversations on the streets and to let the creative spirit flow. In The Bronx section of New York City a group of dedicated individuals took the artist’s call in earnest and invited members of the community to participate by taking the photographs, posing for the photographs and wheat pasting them in the Hunts Point Section of The Bronx.  JR was there for one day to lend a hand after he had finished his large installations in Manhattan.
