BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

Heading into the 4th of July we reflect upon patriotism, our declaration of independence from England, and Britain’s new declaration of independence from the EU. Are there similarities?

Now, we’re all off the park for a barbecue! Where is the frisbee? Where are those hotdog buns?

And here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Agostino Iacurci, Alaniz, Aron Belka, Buttsup, Float Art, Gilf!, King, London Kaye, Pixel Pancho, QRST, Reed B More, Sipros, and WK Interact.

Pixel Pancho. The Italian artist was in NYC early in June to participate in a group show and painted this mural in Chelsea in NYC. While the mural appears unfinished by the blotch of white paint on the bottom that is not the case. The artist’s completed piece was tagged and as per the artist’s request the gallery removed the tag with the white paint. (Photo © Jaime Rojo)

Ludo says “Enjoy the Violence”

Ludo says “Enjoy the Violence”

Ludo is on the street right now in New York putting up his combinations of pretty and violent work, and he’s happy to be here. Thursday he will be ready to welcome you at his show at Jonathan Levine Gallery in Chelsea entitled “Fruit of the Doom”, which he says is sold out. We caught him putting up his newest pieces in Little Italy and in Bushwick that present the oppositional sides of man’s darker nature with natures generous beauty.

“People either love my work or hate it,” said Ludo yesterday about the images of nature perverted by weaponry and the growing militarism of society.

“I like this,” he declares.

It’s good to see that after many campaigns of culture jamming in cities around the world and despite his gradual climb to popularity and commercial success, Ludo has the same attitude he had when wheat pasting with us one windy day in 2010. “Certainly street art is a bit of sociology,” he told us then, “I mean you try to grab what you can from the society and incorporate it into your work and then take it back out to the streets with your personality in it.”

So that is why you see brass knuckles growing from a rose, and a lime cockpit that has morphed into a hellfire missile launching helicopter, “It’s more about everything that stupidly rules the world… guns, technology, humans, new gadgets – That is what I like to take and remix and give a message,” he told us.

Ludo for The Bushwick Collective. The art in the background is by Street Artist Sonni whose time on this wall had already run out, according to the organizer who rotates the artwork. Artists are given the opportunity to paint in this Brooklyn neighborhood and he advises the artists that their art will run only for six months. In this case due to weather and logistics the wall wasn’t buffed prior to Ludo’s arrival, and Ludo’s piece is pasted directly on top of it. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

LUDO’s first USA solo show “Fruit of the Doom” opens this Thursday, February 2o at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. Click HERE for details.

 

A previous version of this posting characterized this show as “sold-out” without attribution to the artist. We apologize for the omission.

BSA-Images-Week-Jan2014

Great week in NYC with the new mayor shaking hands for hours in the cold outside City Hall with all New Yorkers last Sunday, then we got smacked with the devastating cold, then sleet, then high winds. Next up, ice locusts! Also, if your Christmas tree is still up, don’t plug it in because that puppy will go up in 25 seconds of flaming glory. Wait until it is safely on the street before igniting.

This week we also featured not one but two yarn artists, which has gotta be a first for us – London Kaye and the Olek. Yarn on the street isn’t exactly a trend, but it is sort of a trend.

– In a related story, Olek is now reporting that the piece we documented her installing in 4 degree temperatures has mysteriously disappeared. Street Art vanishes all the time but the size of this piece was gargantuan and it was a complicated install and it was hung in a very heavily traversed part of Little Italy. Says Olek in her FB/Twitter all-points-bulletin “Alert: 376 square feet of #crochet art stolen.” Keep your eye on Grandma, also Aunt Betty. ‘Cause you know, knitters sometimes get competitive, that’s all I’m saying.

And here we are with our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Beau Stanton, EC13, Etnik, Haculla, Icy & Sot, Miron Milic, Olek, Pyramid Oracle, Rene Gagnon, Seville, Sexer, Steep, Swoon, Team Low Brow, Team Mishka, and Zimad.

Olek Warms Little Italy With Giant Multi-colored Freedom

Olek Warms Little Italy With Giant Multi-colored Freedom

The previous NYC record for frigid cold on January 7th was 6 degrees (F).

Tuesday broke that record at 4 degrees.

Olek decided we needed a blanket.

brooklyn-street-art-olek-jaime-rojo-01-14-web-1

Olek for The L.I.S.A. Project NYC (photo © Jaime Rojo)

With the help of Shir Lieberman, London O’Donnell, and Whitney Spivey, the crochet Street Artist installed a 60 foot long multicolored comforter to warm a parking lot fence in coordination with Wayne Rada and RJ Rushmore of the Little Italy Street Art Project. The LISA Project, as it is more commonly referred to, is a private initiative that has brought a variety of street and graffiti artists to this tourist neighborhood in the last two years.

Olek never does a project half way, and the size and scope of her psychedelic camouflage skin street projects continue to barely keep pace with her imagination.  The sentiment of the slogan appears to augment the work ethic and of course, and it is perfectly timely as the concept and practice of freedom is debated daily in the public and digital spheres.

Having part freedom is like being part pregnant. More germanely perhaps, we think of those “free speech” zones set up outside of political conventions that are basically just cages to contain people and prevent them from moving about freely to protest.  They are part free speech/ part totalitarianism. Is there such a thing?

“…the path of progress, the struggle for equality for all, is a life-long endeavor, achieved through persistence and faith, never wavering. Each individual must participate in this progress through any way available, including public displays of solidarity, creations of art, reliance on the legal system and vocalizations of opinion. Equality for all in some parts of the world is not total equality; it must be worldwide.” -Olek
