Pandemonium on the Walls at Pandemic

Brooklyns’ Pandemic Gallery recently invited a sort of painted pandemonium to fill all the walls of their space for a summer art party. Shoulder to hip and head to toe, this mixture of artists is actually emblematic of this moment in Brooklyn history and representing the raucous variety of styles that are mashing and mixing on the graffiti/street art/fine art continuum throughout the world.

But no one likes to be labelled and if you ask them and probably each of these artists would prefer not to be called graffiti artists or street artists or fine artists because each title has too many limitations or insulting inferences. One thing everybody agrees on is they like to paint on walls and while we have seen our share of bring-all-your-friends wall smashing that somehow goes awry, this indoor installation is one of the most cogent mashup derby style groupings you are likely to see this year.

COST: “You Can’t Turn Rebellion Into Money” & the Evolution of a Bushwick Wall

Graffiti Artist and New York City legend COST and his buddy Set recently completed his wall at Bushwick’s “5 Points”. It is a treat to see fresh work from COST on the streets of New York, especially for those of us who were not in the city (or old enough) back in the late 80s/early 90s when he was running with REVS and talking about who had intimate relations with Madonna. Below are images taken over a period of three weeks of the wall’s subtle and gradual transformation to its current form.
