BSA Special Feature:
Aiko: “Sunrise” for The Japan Society exhibition “Edo Pop”
In this new video released by The Japan Society, Street Artist Aiko speaks about her work in the street and how it relates to the current exhibition inside the gallery space, and of course about stencilling and staying up all night painting on the street.
“I believe that my energy is transferring through the stencil onto the wall. It’s like a transferring ceremony,” she says.
A new series of brief introductions to some Street Artists currently working in BK are here from Brooklyn’s talented new film group called Dega. So far the “Art Pollution” series features sharply edited quick sketches of Overunder, Jilly Ballistic, and the duo Yok and Sheryo.
