BSA in New York Issue of Graffiti ART Magazine

The French contemporary art magazine Graffiti ART has just released their New York issue, giving an overview of historical and current players on the graffiti/street art scene in New York City. Along with profiling the work of people like Keith Haring, Patty Astor, Crash, Dan Witz, and How & Nosm, you’ll find a nice piece about your favorite street art blog, Brooklyn Street Art (BSA).

Special thanks to editor Samantha Longhi, who once wrote a regular column here on BSA with her Top 5 Stencils of the Week, for her inclusion of us in this issue, and to BSA readers for your continued support. We appreciate the recognition for our work and labors of love.

Last minute touches at “Community Service”. (photo © Roswitha Guillemin courtesy the gallery)

Last Friday C215 played host at Galerie Itinerrance as he debuted many new pieces across various surfaces using the stencil technique he is known for. His addition of color variations over the last year or so has opened a door into more possibilities for dimension and emotion in his portraits. Fans of the monochromatic style he established his name with were pleased to see the black/grey/white stencils also continue to capture his interest.

C215 and “Community Service”

New Show and Book Recognize the Impact of the Global Street Stencil Artist

In a very short time C215 has become an important phenomenon in street art around the world. BSA has been among the crowd who have been moved by the feelings that arise with a sudden encounter of his work on the street. What gives his stencil work resonance is the light that emanates from within the people he selects from whatever neighborhood he is in. Paolo M., a photographer who goes by the moniker Unusual Image and is featured in the new collection, remarks on C215’s people, “I think that there is a kind of sense of humanity that illuminates them.” It’s an uncanny ability to summon the spirit of a subject through his deft cutting of stencils, but it’s what he does with regularity.

Further distinguishing the work is the level of detail in these hand-cut pieces, incrementally setting a new standard for stencils and portraiture. Says VitoStreet, another featured photographer who has shot numerous of the pieces in the street, “The most amazing things such as feathers, fur, beard, hair are reproduced brilliantly.” Collectively the steady development of the body of work is blurring the line between fine art and street art.
