~BUSHWICK STREET ART – SUMMER 2012
the street art in Bushwick – has a very different ‘take’ – than that in Williamsburg, but both share a real, sharp – ‘edge’.

next to it, is some real contrarian counter-intuitive street poetry. a ‘lyric’ – whose story-board narrative is deceptively: harsh, despite the pretty pix. right on.
though, it’s definite got a Brooklyn backyard – summertime beat. lemonade and all.
STEVE HARRINGTON & JAIME ROJAS of BROOKLYN STREET ART tell us this street mural is by – CLOWN SOLDIER, circa 2010.
read their excellent interview with CLOWN SOLDIER, and see more pix !!, here: ALL THE WORLD IS A CLOWN, BROOKLYN STREET ART/BSA MARCH 3, 2011
BROOKLYN STREET ART tell us the bird head – is by GAIA.
and so does – war !!
as in – SCI-FI FIGHTERS.
BROOKLYN STREET ART tells us the fighters – are by FREDDY SAM.
p.s. what your roommate says about ‘PROMETHEUS’ the new summer movie of 2012 is true – it’s a real dud, as in lame. lame as lame can be. blockbuster, NOT !! way not. just some lazy scam to separate you – from your pocket dough.
at best. the harsh Egyptian-like ‘animal’ helmets, the humanoid space travelers wore, with their secret hinge at the jaw – were the best part. all downhill pretty much from the start, otherwise.
the wall starts get to get more ‘realist’ as in ‘human’, as opposed to sci fi or animal / beast – as it goes on.
and what’s that . . . a dead black (magic) cat – on an art ‘field’ – underneath ?
one thing’s for sure. there sure ain’t no . . . . hope or change. it’s a pretty jaded message, this time around.
even the PEACE, has tear drops.
BROOKLYN STREET ART attributes this part of the street mural – to ZE PALITO.
