BSA Images Of The Week: 08.13.17

“I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists,” tweeted David Duke yesterday as #charlottesville, #nazi, #defendcville, and #confederate all trended at the top across the social media platform.

As if Donald ever thinks about those people who marched. Ever.

People marched and bellowed with torches Friday night and with swastika flags on Saturday in Charlottesville; mostly white men and boys encouraged by the Trump/Pence team and all the people who are steering-advising. After a car was driven into the crowd of anti-racists the governor declared a state of emergency.

Racism and other -isms are not new. Neither is how they are being fueled and fanned today.

During these caustically hot summer days in the US almost every opinion expressed is characterized as political rhetoric, thanks to years of televised cable shouting matches. Reasoned discourse with gray areas is strictly verboten. But if you really want to know what is happening, just follow the money. Historians tell us that is the struggle, simplified and bare for the eye to see. Paid-for disinformation and millionaire newsreaders may cloud the view, but that’s what’s happening.

The majority of us are good, even fantastic, people who know somehow we are being ripped off and gradually shoved toward the door. The people have the actual power when they seize it. It just may take an economic collapse.

See any on the horizon?

Thankfully we still have Street Art, right?  There is no doubt that it has already become more political here in the last year and the odds are that it will probably grow louder – as our graffiti and Street Art is always a direct mirror of us.

So here’s our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuringArt Baby Girl, ASVP, Mad Villian, Brolga, Camo Lords, El Sol 25, Gutti Barrios, Raddington Falls, Monsieur Chat, Myth, Pay to Pray, Raemann, Self Master, Stray Ones, and You Go Girl!.

Images of the Week 03.17.13

We just took a tray of green jello shots out of the freezer and you can kiss anybody you want because today we’re all Irish, even Shakisha. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you, unless you are one of the thousands of gay or lesbians dis-invited as usual from marching down 5th Avenue yesterday in the parade.

Here’s our weekly interview of the street, this week featuring Alice Pasquini, Amanda Marie, Foxx Face, Futura, HRH Queen Elizabeth, JR, Lädy Millard, Nick Walker, OCMC (Oh Captain My Captain), PM AM, Raemann, Shie Moreno, and WK Interact.

Cat People and Dog People ; Street Artists Bring Trusted Friends

Street Artists are just as attached to their pets as anybody else, and given their reputation for being sort of secretive loners, maybe more. It’s not common but the appearance of cats and dogs on the street without leashes happens once in a while in carefully rendered drawings, illustrations, paintings, stencils, wheatpastes and stickers.

Whether it’s the formal portrait studio quality of C215’s cat stencils, Tazz’s red-nosed glowering dog stickers, or the plump and wide eyed feline hunter wheat-pastes of QRST, these animals are an important aspect of the autobiographical nature of today’s Street Art scene.  It is said that observing a pet gives you a good idea about an owners disposition. If so, what would you say about the artist who uses an animal, whether as portrait, amulet, or metaphor – to tell their story on the public thoroughfare?

An old Nick Walker piece gets a new look with a fresh coat of paint in the negative space. His stencil shows signs of weathering and time but admirably the landlord left it untouched, creating a new framing in the process. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Even in grey winter, a new bright blossom springs from the cracks in the concrete as Wing uses glass tiles for this installation. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Todd “Reas” James and Stephen “ESPO” Powers joined forces again this weekend and brought to Brooklyn  a large selection of works from “The Street Market”, their installation shown this April at the “Arts in the Streets” exhibition at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.
