Editorz, 11 Feb 11:02 PM


“It’s surreal to be on the south side of the US border,” we said last week about being in Mexico. Sorry to report that it may be even more surreal on this side. Trump and Co. suffered a setback on their Muslim travel ban via the courts but are reportedly breaking out the ICE and […]

Snow In Day in NYC : Let’s Head to the Park
Editorz, 11 Feb 05:00 AM


Art in the Streets! Art in the park! Okay, a really loose interpretation here, but who can deny that the hand of nature often looks like it belongs to an artist? Central Park. February 2017. NYC.

Getting “Woke” with the Word On The Street(s)
Editorz, 09 Feb 09:00 AM


The powerful use of words and images is playing an important role in directing the events that lead us forward, or backward. It is right for us to be alerted to fake news, although the recent bashing of news sources has more to do with de-legitimizing and seizing power than any sincere interest in truth. […]

Trump Scares As Street Art-Inspired Magazine Covers
Editorz, 06 Feb 09:00 AM


The bright pop pallet, the layered stencil flatness, the drips, the overspray. These are some hallmarks of the modern Street Art style; evocative of free speech, underground activist missives, and pop culture soaked tongue-in-cheek satire. And here they are popping up again on major magazine covers – still nailing the essence of the message with […]

BSA Images Of The Week: 02.05.17
Editorz, 04 Feb 11:02 PM


It’s surreal to be on the south side of the US border when Trump has just signed an executive order to build a wall, decides to try to pick a fight with the President of Mexico and drops a travel ban. Gosh, between giving away everything to his ultra-rich friends, loosening regulations on their companies, bringing Frederick […]

A Wall a Month : Contorno Urbano Launches “12 1” for 2017
Editorz, 01 Feb 11:02 PM


Walls get buffed all the time in many cities as the municipal anti-graffiti campaigns scour the streetscape for unapproved aerosol missives and get out the bucket paint or bring by the power washer.

“Shoe” is His Middle Name: New Book by Niels Shoe Meulman
Editorz, 01 Feb 09:00 AM


“They both see words as images,” says Shoe about graffiti writers and Medieval scribes in a 2013 interview with the BBC. His latest tome extrapolates this reverence for the letterform, an obsessive repetitive family of gestures, now often abstracted, that the artist first stumbled upon as a pre-teen in the late 1970s.  Since those days […]

“Stars and Bricks” Go Up on a Berlin Wall from Various & Gould
Editorz, 31 Jan 05:02 AM


“Men build too many walls and not enough bridges.” ― Joseph Fort Newton, Southern Baptist minister from Texas (1876–1950) And yet, talk again turns to the building of a contiguous wall along the southern border of the US. Even though the wall is part of an Executive Order from President Trump, some say that in […]

Civic Dialogue & “Fake Walls” : A New Interview With Gaia
Editorz, 11 Jan 11:02 PM


He calls them “fake walls”; these mockups of murals in Baltimore that feature adorable pets. With these clever photoshopped pieces of mural fiction the Street Artist Gaia is perhaps skewering the coy shallowness of mural festivals that encourage a content-free decorative approach, rather than a substantive historically/socially/politically rooted one. If Street Art has been hi-jacked […]

New Ethereal Works From Rubin 415
Editorz, 03 Jan 11:02 PM


Many people say that Street Art by its nature is necessarily ethereal because it is often damaged by the elements or destroyed by others.  Your expectation for it’s brief lifetime is tempered with the realities on the street. On some occasions, indoor artwork has a similar fate. A few new pieces here for you from […]

Tracking Phlegm in Wynwood, Miami.
Editorz, 01 Jan 11:02 PM


Phlegm. Wynwood, Miami. (photo © Jaime Rojo) It’s over a year old, but this mural by UK’s Phlegm along rail tracks in Miami has a certain timeless quality. Maybe it is the illustrator’s monochromatic fanta-realism or the placement of this industrial-age freight running on the side of an old factory building , but these characters […]
