Images of the Week: 02.17.13

Guess it shouldn’t surprise us when we find out that the sticker, wheat-paste, or mural we published of “Street Art” or graffiti actually turns out to be a logo or promotion for someone who is selling sneakers, t-shirts, lip-gloss, tampons, or toe fungus spray. That’s how people pay the rent, yo!

BAST Collection for FALL 2013 Hits The Streets

Fashion Week in New York means more models than usual on the subway and on the sidewalk. Poor us.
Impossibly thin tall pretty and hunky people with beautiful skin and far-away eyes parading up and down the street in their free designer clothes and accessories, peering into their phones at MTA maps and fashion blogs to [...]

BSA Loves You More Every Day: Happy Valentines Day

Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.
C. S. Lewis
The individual wheat-paster or tagger on the streets may not intend it, but they’re writing an open diary, an invitation to conversation, to tell a story. As we continue to record and examine the stories that are [...]

Blue Abstraction from Doug Fogelson in Chicago

The new Street Art Abstraction we’ve been talking about continues apace in the public sphere, perhaps buffeted by current shows like MoMA’s Inventing Abstraction and the 100th anniversary of the earth shaking Armory Show that turned modern art on its head.
Not quite as earth shaking, but still a marker on the path in the urban forest, [...]

Sheryo and the Dubai Camel

You’ve seen her work here for about a year and a half, since Singaporean Street Artist settled in Brooklyn and began painting New York walls in earnest with people like the Australian Yok, Brooklyn’s Bishop 203, and TopDos from Paris. In fact her New York campaign with Yok last year covered so many walls (especially [...]

Street Artist RUBBISH for Le M.U.R. in Paris

Rubbish, the French Street Artist who can work for endless hours to finely cut paper as intricately as lace, is taking his turn at the Le M.U.R wall in Paris right now.  Still pretty new to the scene, the Besançon based artist has a meticulous cutting method influenced by painting, mythology, even Art Nouveau. Recent [...]

Specter in Puerto Escondido, Mexico

Today New York and most of the northeast US is completely clobbered and somewhat paralyzed with snow from a giant blizzard so we thought we’d show you photos from a surf town of 26,000 residents in Mexico called Puerto Escondido where their annual Carnaval started yesterday. Brooklyn based Street Artist Specter is working in the [...]

Remixing The Face in a Stinky Underground Subway Hallway

A walk through the neglected and crumbling grime-caked subway stations of New York City, with their epically peeling paint and the smell of smeared human feces rushing you through hallways to your next train, can be a nauseating and dispiriting.  Mayors come and go, but rats and garbage remain, helping New York to “keep it [...]

Cat People and Dog People ; Street Artists Bring Trusted Friends

Street Artists are just as attached to their pets as anybody else, and given their reputation for being sort of secretive loners, maybe more. It’s not common but the appearance of cats and dogs on the street without leashes happens once in a while in carefully rendered drawings, illustrations, paintings, stencils, wheatpastes and stickers.

Street Artists Liqen and Nantu just finished this wall in Tosunpa, Equador on the side of a small storefront. Using primarily black paint and paint brushes, the two create a reposed nymph looking skyward, her head surrounded by rolling waves, a somewhat tumultuous adventure on the high seas with dolphins, a whale, and a troubled [...]

Laura Shechter, Painter of Graffiti

“I particularly feel graffiti beautifies blighted areas, and gives them style and dignity.” ~ Laura Schecter
Brooklyn born contemporary realist painter Laura Schecter takes cityscapes and graffiti into consideration as a formalist and you may even say with an element of romanticism. With abstract painter and “father of minimalism” Ad Rhinehardt as a teacher at Brooklyn [...]
