BSA-Images-Week-Jan2015

Groovin’ on a Sunday afternoon….

This week was full of great Street Art stories – the main one everyone was talking about was fake TV graffiti by the Egyptian Street Artists who hacked the propagandic “Homeland” drama, in the process revealing the producers’ utter xenophobia by merely writing critical messages in Arabic – the language of the land the show was supposedly so expertly depicting. No one from the show caught it before it aired.

Elsewhere JR thinks Street Art might change the world, Retna scored the cover of the new Justin Beiber album, and the French performance artists Boijeot Renauld were profiled on the Today show and in The New York Times. This week they made it through Times Square and are somewhere just below Union Square now – living on Broadway en route to Battery Park by the end of their sojourn next weekend. Speaking of Times Square don’t miss the very cool Juxtapoz news stand on display right now in the middle of the Selfie-Stick Forest. Today is the last day for that installation.

Pupo Bibbito and LoSbieco painted this piece in an abandoned factory in Reggio Emilia, Italy. This factory produced the R60 tractor. The factory was fully operating from 1904 through 2008. In October 8, 1950 workers occupied the factory to protest the imminent dismissal of 2100 workers. The artists wanted to pay tribute to that fight for workers rights with this mural.

FAILE “Wishing On You” At The Flashy Crossroads of NYC

FAILE “Wishing On You” At The Flashy Crossroads of NYC

FAILE Takes Times Square with Giant Prayer Wheel. Come Give it a Spin!

A folk-art pagoda sitting quietly in the basin of a valley richocheting with electronic propaganda and consumption worship, the newest public piece by Brooklyn’s street art duo FAILE has a few mysteries to reveal to the river of tourists flowing around it and through it. You may need a place to pray in this land of fake Muppets, Three Card Monte and thong-strung patriotic painted ladies. “Wishing On You” draws on European, Asian, and American forms and culture, a tribute to traditions, myths, and big screen adventure.

Covered with images evocative of Times Square’s racier past and American dreams flooded in commercial fonts and appetizing invitation, this new rotating piece may remind you of their other prayer wheels and whet your appetite for their current enormous and interactive solo show at The Brooklyn Museum till October 4th. Try to rotate this hunk of pop and pulp and you’ll need a strong woman to help, but when you do, something glittering will surely happen. Promise.
