BSA Images Of The Week: 02.12.23

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week!

How are you feeling, friends? This month “Beyond the Streets” is opening at Saatchi Gallery in London, Risk is receiving a lifetime achievement award in Miami, and yet another Banksy show is opening in New York. Also, there will be a lot of kissing on Tuesday, so you may want to prepare yourself to pucker up.

Some kind of big game today we guess. Happens every year about this time – the streets will be empty this afternoon as people will be inside their homes, gathered around their screens, eating buffalo wings, pigs-in-a-blanket and tater tots with family and friends. Happy World Series everybody!

Meanwhile, the Chinese are flying balloons over the US, spying. Shocking. Who else does this remind you of?

New York street art is heavy with pop icons, pop psychology, and popular culture in this week’s collection.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring: SacSix, Sara Lynne Leo, Degrupo, Eye Sticker, Stickman, Ollin, Jorit, Steve the Bum, and Kir One.

SacSix again hi-jacks an image from popular culture and reworks it with some color, spatters, and drips. Here we have the Lone Ranger, with a face like Alec Baldwin – a reference to his gun troubles. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

BSA Images Of The Week: 09.01.19

The fires of summer still burn, as do their romances. Yet September 1 brings news of the racing teams of muscular autumn artworld horses just beyond the next valley, thundering their way through the streets of New York to the galleries and museums. Among the cries, “Hail Henry!” “Hail JR!” “Hail Roger!”

And the streets! As inspiring and perplexing and exciting as ever, providing the ultimate exhibition.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this time featuring Dee Dee, Hugh Brisman, Hysterical Men, Jazz Guetta, City Kitty, Steve The Bum, De Grupo, Frank Ape, Gianni Lee, Never, Kendra Yee, Ruo Han Wang, Jazz Guetta, Nicholas Di Constanzo, Myth, Terry Urban, A Lucky Rabbit, Molly Crabapple, Ms Saffaa, and Vy.

The artist named Never says, “Always Pay The Artists”. You would be surprised to find out how many festivals, galleries, and museums are still ripping off artists – we’ll write a book about it one of these days. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

We don’t know who painted this cosmic vision. The style resembles a combination between Terry Urban and Gianni Lee, both shown above but we believe neither of them painted this. Of course some may say that both Mr. Urban and Mr. Lee are influenced by Basquiat, and possibly Stikman in their work. (photo © Jaime Rojo)
