BSA Images Of The Week: 12.06.20

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week.

…and welcome to a December in New York City where shootings have risen 96% this year, the Sugarplum Fairy and Mouse King and The Nutcracker are not going to appear, 24 subway train cars were aerosol bombed in Queens, a Judge ordered the federal government to fully reinstate the DACA program, the Middle Collegiate Church has burned in the East Village in Manhattan, and Red Bull Arts – home of the awe-inspiring Rammellzee show a few years ago, has announced that it is closing in Manhattan.

Looking for a Christmas tree? An accurate barometer of the income gap perhaps, we found two vendors on the streets of Williamsburg who each told us a 6 foot tree this year starts at $150 this year. Later in the neighborhood of Bushwick we saw a collection of 6 foot tall trees for $60 each. In Soho or 5th Ave just double it, or quintuple it.

Also, as an entirely unrelated aside, have you noticed that Noam Chomsky is metamorphosing into Santa Claus? To be fair, Noam is rarely jolly.

Here is our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuring City Kitty, Elfo, Exposure, Easy and Joz, Gak, Giani NYC, Kest, No Sleep, Quality Mending, Raw Raffe, Skewville, TV Head ATX, UFO907, Muk 123, Gen 2907, Oze108, and Unlok.

BSA Images Of The Week: 09.27.20

They are not staying quiet. If you had doubted the inclination of street artists to join the socio-political fray in 2020, don’t. Among the cute and decorative pieces out there, we are steadily discovering that artists are using the public sphere to take risks, addressing issues that are thorny and puzzling. As ever, the streets are a reflection of our society and all its fabulous dysfunction – a refreshing take on free speech that often makes much more sense than the disinformation war raging hourly right now on corporate media.

Here’s our weekly interview with the streets, this week featuring Adam Fu, Blood and Soul, Clint Mario, Faust, Gazoo to the Moon, Jarus, Maia Lorian, Pure Genius, Raddington Falls, Sticker Maul, Stikman, TV Head ATX, Will Pay, and Winston Tseng.

Emmanuel Jarus in collaboration with Street Art for Mankind and the United Nations on its 75th anniversary a few blocks away from the UN Headquarters hopes to raise awareness on food insecurity. They don’t have to look far to find hungry people, as reportedly 2.5 million New Yorkers were already grappling with food insecurity before the coronavirus pandemic, and a new report from City Harvest says another 800,000 have been added to that figure in just the last six months.
