BSA “Images of the Year” for 2015 : New Video

BSA “Images of the Year” for 2015 : New Video

Was 2015 the “Year of the Mural”?

A lot of people thought so, and the rise of commercial festivals and commissioned public/private mural programs probably brought more artists to more walls than in recent history. Judging from the In Box, 2016 is going to break more records. Enormous, polished, fully realized and presented, murals can hold a special role in a community and transform a neighborhood, even a city.

But they are not the “organic” Street Art that draws us into the dark in-between places in a city, or at its margins.

We keep our eyes open for the small, one-off, idiosyncratic, uncommissioned, weirdo work as well, as it can carry clues about the culture and reveal a sage or silly solo voice.  It also just reinforces the feeling that the street is still home to an autonomous free-for-all of ideas and opinions and wandering passions. For us it is still fascinating to seek out and discover the one-of-a-kind small wheatpastes, stencils, sculptures, ad takeovers, collages, and aerosol sprayed pieces alongside the enormous and detailed paintings that take days to complete.

The main image above is from a vinyl subway advertisement that was high-jacked and we published it in February of this year on our Images of the Week posting. It’s small, personal, and very effective as you can see someone suspiciously similar to Batman is jumping out of the mouth of someone looking awfully similar to Hedwig of “Angry Inch” fame.

Of the 10,000 or so images photographer Jaime Rojo took in 2015, here are a selection 140+ of the best images from his travels through streets looking for unpermissioned and sanctioned art.

Willow and Swil : Hunting, Capturing and Exploring in Brooklyn

Willow and Swil : Hunting, Capturing and Exploring in Brooklyn

Street art brothers Willow and Swil have just populated the streets with their wheat-pastes toward the end of summer here in Brooklyn. Urban Naturalists, that’s what we call them – studies and sketches and paintings of fauna and reptiles, bears and busts of figures and friends and music heroes.

These are sketchbooks that come alive on the streets, their meditative compulsive renderings willing to meet you where you are, eager for your feedback and opinion. The two have overlapping themes and styles, perhaps their rural roots and regard for the hunting, trapping, and agricultural influences of back home, now seen clearer when viewed from the distance of the urban BK streets. There is an increasing level of detail, a steady respect and love for the beauty of the natural.

But there are differences as well, with Willow outdoors and exploring many species and metaphors of nature and Swil taking various internal trips to explore examples of our own human variations and archetypes. As their unique voices evolve and emerge with time before our eyes, it is a generous momentary gift that these mottled and pocked walls can hold for you to discover in your travels on the street – at least until the rain and winds and the blistering sun erode them all away.

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

Today we celebrate Mother’s Day in the USA and Mexico and about 70 other countries. Cheers and thank you to all the mothers of the world.

If only we would stop paying lip service to the foundational importance of motherhood; if millions of mothers would know that tomorrow they will have food to feed their children, that they could live without fear of violence, could take off time from work to care for their families, were paid a living wage equal to a that of a man, could feel loved, protected, supported, respected and cherished.

Let’s all work to make sure that more mothers experience love and a peace of mind. Even if your mother is not alive and here with us today, we can support someone’s who is.

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring $howta, Anthony Lister, Brolga, City Rabbit, Gualicho, Hot Tea, JR, M*Code, Mr. Volpe, Nina Kunan, No More Lies, Pablo Harymbat, Phoebe New York, Pyramid Oracle, Swil, Tristan Eaton, and Willow.

“This is my latest wall, painted in Syracuse, Sicily with the support of the Istinto Naturale cultural association,” says Alice Pasquini of this new tableau.

“Titled ‘The myth of Arethusa and Alpheus’ it was inspired by the spring of Arethusa in Ortygia (Syracuse), a body of fresh water close to the seashore. The legend says that the nereid Arethusa, trying to escape the advances of the river god Alpheus, fled by turning into a stream, eventually breaking ground in Ortygia where Alpheus found her and was able to mingle in her waters.” ~ AP

Let the mingling begin! Although you have to admit that she doesn’t look like she’s quite committed to the idea.

Good Willow Hunting : Street Art Brothers Use Symbols from Their Rural Childhood

Today we look at Street Artist Willow and his bro Swil as they build a street mise en scene referencing the agrarian life of a huntsman with highly saturated wheat-pasted images. The two have been up around Brooklyn for the last couple of years, often working in tandem on handmade pieces but more often its Willows work you may have seen on the heads of birds, bears, reptiles, and the occasional human, each in rich color and great detail.

Like this new installation on a boarded lot construction site, the images float freely above the street, not exclusively in relation to other elements or in a formal composition, but related by proximity and theme.  Speaking with the young artist last week we learned that each element in this new collection adds to a larger storyline that is partially rooted in memories and associations from childhood and their personal history in a hunting culture that exists hours north of New York City.

Willow . Swil. Detail (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Of the collaboration, Willow says, “There is not a direct biographical context in this piece and we do not know the man personally, yet we managed to display a dense narrative by playing off one another’s intrinsic thoughts. We pulled references from rural upstate New York where we grew up. The hunting community there is vast and I’m sure they would assume this piece is about the sport itself.” But he says its not about hunting specifically nor even about this man, who neither knows but you might think looks like a stand-in for the poet Walt Whitman. “It’s more about reflection and consciousness in the natural environment. It is meant to bring a sliver of the lost and forgotten to the city.”

Willow says he’s not had a lot of experience with aerosol as a medium and has had issues with control in the past. “I haven’t worked with spray paint much, but I’ve realized it’s easier to control when painting large images. So, I decided to paint a blown-up side profile of a wood duck’s face,” he says of the pivotal aviary image to the left. “The iridescence of its plumage is what I wanted to capture. After finishing with the spray, some of the softer lines were enhanced with acrylic paint.”

Willow . Swil. Detail (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Then came the related elements to its right. “A second piece was needed to reveal the bird’s purpose. I wanted to invent an animated sculptural element. I rendered the axe, acorn, and former four leaf clover in an assemblage that speaks chiefly of our heritage and upbringing. This element later acted as a bridge between the wood duck and the elderly man,” he says.

And so who painted the portrait of the bearded huntsman? That’s when all the symbols are tied to one another, courtesy of the younger sibling Swil.

Willow . Swil. Detail (photo © Jaime Rojo)

“I noticed something was missing, that’s when I asked my brother if he’d like to add to the image. Through our conversation, he immediately knew what he wanted to do and got to work, paying close attention to the color palette I had used. Swil painted the portrait in acrylic of a seemingly wise old man wearing a massive flowing beard and plaid woodsman’s hat to match. The technique he used involved working from dark to light, blending the paint occasionally and using much softer lines than myself. His distant gaze and crossed hands express sincere remorse for the given circumstance and the duck’s call is heard.”

Willow . Swil. Detail (photo © Jaime Rojo)

And here we depart from the literal or the linear, as ghosts and poets we can measure and discern intention, emotion, and action, tossing each into the air to float as symbols and atoms, recombining and breaking apart again as in a dream. Willow says of the duck hunter, “Though he is not physically bearing the axe, it has been swung with his awareness. The acorn is split with the hope of a premature germination. This fragile test of luck is something similar to eagerly cracking open a fortune cookie. The man’s intentions slide through his idle hands as the fourth leaf drifts away, and the red-eyed waterfowl maintains his blazing glare.”

This is perhaps an unusual approach to storytelling on the street, and yet its indicative of the many new ways the street is talking to us today. Highly laborious and deftly defined, the presentation is at once familiar and odd, making a passerby stop and contemplate it at least for a moment, before continuing on their way to the laundromat or corner deli or opera.

Street Artist Phlegm from Sheffield (GB) was passing through New York this week and took a little time to add his character to a wall that Know Hope from Tel-Aviv painted in early March in NYC. Says Phlegm, “I couldn’t pass the opportunity to add one of my characters giving his a helping hand.”  Our geography skills aren’t too strong but this work connects 3 continents, doesn’t it? This wall was produced by Keith Schweitzer of MaNY Projects in conjunction with Fourth Arts Block (FAB).  (photo © Jaime Rojo)
