BSA Images Of The Week: 04.21.24

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week!

“It’s the only time of the year when New York City smells good,” says your cranky Uncle Jaime about the flowers and blossoms everywhere as he stretches on the couch with his second cup of coffee and gazes out the window at the sky. Outside, there is a battle between the diverse vocal repertoires and mimicry of mockingbirds singing from branches, utility poles, and wires – and the little league fans squealing, exhorting, and shouting with joy from the bleachers every time a smartly uniformed child whacks a ball with the wooden bat and trundles up the path to first base.

We are constantly amazed by the new street art that is popping up in the boroughs – on construction fencing around empty lots, on doorways in industrial zones, on chain-link fences under bridges, on old telephone booths, lamp posts, crumbling brick facades, and the backs of street signs. With the New York spring, there are tulips popping up from the grassy patches everywhere – even those random 3-foot-long rectangles surrounded by concrete and piled with dog poop.

There are blooms on the trees – the Kwanzan and Yoshino cherry trees are in bloom at the Brooklyn and Bronx Botanical Gardens, in Central Park in Manhattan, in Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, in the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden at Snug Harbor in Staten Island. Spring also brings us a new crop of fresh aerosol missives, wheat-pasted characters, stenciled witticisms, radical opinions, and secret yearnings. Together with the weathered and the worn street art from previous seasons, it’s an ongoing visual cacophony.

In New York news, a two-sided painting by the eclectic painter and collector Martin Wong and graffiti writers Sharp and Delta2 is featured in MoMA show “In the Shadow of the American Dream”, a man set himself on fire publicly near the Trump hush-money trial this week, similar to the US soldier who self-immolated to protest Israel’s actions in Gaza and US support for it a few weeks ago, former Mayor Guliani’s son appears to follow in his father’s footsteps, Passover is in full effect with convoys on streets in Brooklyn, Pro-Palestine marchers vow more action on campuses following this week’s demonstrations at Columbia, and a guy was arrested for writing ‘ceasefire/free Palestine’ with a Sharpie on a subway.

And now, here are images from our ongoing conversation with the street, this week, including: Captain Eyeliner, Tats Cru, Stikki Peaches, Eternal Possessions, Jappy Agoncillo, One Rad Latina, Tom Bob NYC, Travis, BBW.BUND.COP, Lunar YCP, NAY 381, and Kristian Boyum (visiting from Norway).
