Brooklyn-Street-Art-IMAGES-OF-THE-WEEK_05-2010

Our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Billy Mode, Cash4, Cassius Fouler, Chris Stain, Creepy, Godson, JR, LMNOP, PonyBoy, QRST, Rambo, Voke, and Xavior.

We start this week with a brand new nearly block-long installation in Bushwick, Brooklyn by Street Artists Chris Stain, Billy Mode, and Voke called “In The Dream”. The guys really stretched themselves physically and creatively, coxing out a more subtle and layered treatment of their subjects and symbols . It creates a dream-like feeling frankly.

French street artist and TED Prize winner  JR visited New York recently to help turn the Bronx “Inside Out”. As most of our readers are already aware, JR used his prize money to encourage communities all over the world to take part in the conversations on the streets and to let the creative spirit flow. In The Bronx section of New York City a group of dedicated individuals took the artist’s call in earnest and invited members of the community to participate by taking the photographs, posing for the photographs and wheat pasting them in the Hunts Point Section of The Bronx.  JR was there for one day to lend a hand after he had finished his large installations in Manhattan.

JR Helps to Turn The Bronx Inside Out

Summertime, and the Street Art is easy. With the assistance of Street Artist JR and his project “Inside Out”, it’s been easier than ever this summer for people of all stripes to take over the public space with their faces and their personal stories. At his offering, thousands of people worldwide have sent photos of themselves digitally and received them back printed to post proudly in their local environs.

Of course street artists like Fauxreel, C215, Swoon, Specter and others have thoughtfully introduced neighbors into the public space with their work also, each with their individual technique, but the scale of this TED-fueled interactive project really impacts many perceptions of people, neighborhoods, and the concept of public space.

“You want LOCAL? I got yer local right heeyah.”

JR recently hit up many New York spots personally and photographer Jaime Rojo chased a number of them up in the Boogie Down Bronx, where everyone seems to be seeing the world with new eyes.

“The piece is called “Moon Mask” and it’s ink and acrylic on paper. The concept of the piece is based on the idea of revealing one’s true self and letting go of masks that blind us” Joshua John
